Andrew Cuomo said. **This investment was critical in improving JFK*s infrastructure, created more than 1,000 construction jobs and demonstrated the strength of our Minority—Women-owned Business Enterprises participation.

Schumer.

**Today*s opening of Delta Air Lines* new Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport is great news for Southeast Queens and New York City as a whole. Delta*s commitment to the surrounding communities and to New York City is evident in the investment it has in building this state-of-the-art facility,** stated Congressman Gregory W. Meeks. Meeks continued, **In addition to the 8,800 people that Delta employs in New York, many more jobs will be added directly at JFK and indirectly in the freighting, delivery, hospitality, maintenance, and security services that support air travel and trade at America*s foremost international airport. Travelers from across the world will be able to benefit from the nine new gates, seven renovated gates, enhanced check-in areas, new dining and retail outlets, a new Delta Sky Club with an outdoor terrace, and a new baggage handling system. This will continue to enhance JFK*s role as the economic engine of the 5th Congressional District.**

**Thanks to Delta*s $1.4 billion investment, travelers to and from JFK will experience a state-of-the-art facility with improved amenities and better services,** said New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. **Over the past six years, Delta has doubled the number of employees based at JFK and created quality construction jobs, with a focus on local hiring and priority to MWBEs. We look forward to their continued expansion and partnership with New York City.**

The Port Authority is proud to partner with Delta Air Lines on this important modernization and expansion project at John F. Kennedy International Airport,** said Scott Rechler, the Port Authority*s vice chairman. **This project will better serve the tens of millions of air travelers who use JFK, which is one of the largest international gateways in North America.

A chef-designed menu of cuisine such as sushi, cheese, charcuterie and dessert will allow customers the option of enjoying a pre-departure meal, enabling them to sleep immediately after takeoff. Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson, who also selects Delta*s Business Elite wine offerings, has developed a premium wine-by-the glass program for the Club with many vintages usually available only by the bottle, including Dom Perignon and Muga Prado Enea, Gran Reserva. Additionally customers needing privacy within the Club can reserve the Ciroc Lounge, which offers a private space with seating and entertainment.
