The purpose of this notice is to provide awareness of this impending RFP. This notice is being issued solely for informational and planning purposes and does not constitute a solicitation.
The following information provides background information for the intended RFP as well as a high-level view of the expected Scope of Services.
John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) opened in 1948 and originally operated with one terminal and one runway while serving approximately 200,000 passengers annually. Today, JFK operates with six terminals and four runways. In 2018, the airport accommodated an estimated 455,000 flights and served a record of approximately 61.6 million passengers. Demand at the airport is expected to continue to increase, with current forecasts estimating activity reaching 100 million annual passengers by 2050.
In February 2017, the Port Authority Board of Commissioners (“the Board”) authorized a Phase I Plan for future Airport redevelopment, including development of an Airport Master Plan. This master planning work would focus on a comprehensive, airport-wide framework for transforming JFK into a unified, world-class airport.
In December 2018, the Board authorized Phase II planning efforts and supporting construction work including planning for the overall Airport redevelopment and certain improvements and facilities on-Airport, including capacity improvements for AirTrain JFK; a new multi-use aircraft facility shared among all air carriers; extension of Taxiway K4 to better manage current volumes of traffic on the airport’s taxiways; a new ground transportation center; and a new central electrical substation. It also authorized an airport-wide work-order program to perform general construction work such as structural steel erection, masonry, building finishes, fire protections, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and similar tasks.
