Delta’s JFK expansion to boost regional jet strategy
Delta’s super-expansion at JFK and LGA put it in a New York state of mind. The airline already is the dominant slot-holder at LaGuardia, and JFK will help with Delta’s Virgin Atlantic investment, as well as for regional jets.
Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal
Delta Air Lines Inc. is planning an additional $175 million project at John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 4 — part of a larger expansion effort in the New York region.
Under the expanded program, Terminal 4′s Concourse B will house 27 Delta gates and replace Delta’s current Terminal 2 regional-jet operation. All gates will be designed to accommodate two-class regional jets as well as provide flexibility for gating additional mainline aircraft.
