About JFK Airport

John F. Kennedy Airport is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world and is located on Jamaica Bay in southeast Queens, New York. The airport, which covers over 1,000 acres, is so large that it has its own zip code. It serves 100 air carriers from 50 countries. Among them are the discount carrier Jet Blue, Aer Lingus, Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, KLM, US Airways and Virgin Atlantic. JFK also services cargo carriers like FedEx and DHL. There are four runways around JFK's central terminus. The airport is the only one in New York City large enough to handle jumbo jets like the 747.

JFK airport began as Idlewild airport, named after a former golf club in the area. Idlewild was actually a nickname, as the formal name of the airport was New York International Airport, Anderson Field. The first flight occurred on July 1, 1948.

Idlewild was renamed after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Aside from the many air carriers it serves, it is also very convenient for New York's famous mass transit system. The Q3 bus makes regular stops between the 169th street bus terminal in Jamaica and the airport. The free AirTrain JFK, a breezy monorail gives passengers a view of the futuristic looking airport and takes them not only between the eight terminals, but to the car rental companies. It also takes passengers to the subway and the Long Island Railroad Station on Sutphin Boulevard. The one drawback is that the passengers do have to pay to leave the AirTrain. The AirTrain runs in a loop around the airport and one arrives at a terminal every ten minutes.

JFK also has a state-of-the-art control tower, which was designed by the firm of Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners. The airport also generates its own electricity and has fuel storage facility with a capacity of 32 million gallons of jet fuel.
