New York‘s John F. Kennedy International Airport is getting a $13 billion USD makeover that aims to transform the hub into a “world-class 21st-century airport.” Governor Andrew Cuomo has unveiled new renderings of the scheme, which will add two new international terminals at the North and South sides, and increase airport capacity by 4 million square feet to accommodate 15 million annual passengers.

The overall design will offer higher ceilings, natural light and technological improvements such as radiation detection and identification of unattended baggage. The South terminal will provide 23 international gates and ample space for retail, dining, interior green spaces and social hubs. The North terminal will replace the current 48-year-old terminal to make way for 12 international gates. “This historic investment to modernize JFK Airport and the surrounding transportation network will not only ease travel through this major hub, but it will ensure JFK joins the ranks as one of the finest airports in the world,” said Cuomo.

The new JFK buildings are expected to enter into operation in 2023 with completion expected in 2025. Take a look at the renderings above and share your thoughts in the comments.

On the other side of the world, India’s new Pakyoung airport is situated 4,593 feet in the Himalayan mountains.
