The Federal Aviation Administration granted final environmental approval for construction of a new $4.2 billion terminal at New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport, the state said Thursday.

New York state Governor Kathy Hochul said construction will begin early next year to build a 1.2 million-square foot (111,480-square-meter), 10-gate terminal at JFK.

The new Terminal 6 will be built in two phases, with the first new gates opening in 2026. The new terminal will be used by JetBlue (JBLU.O) and Lufthansa Group (LHAG.DE).
