New York JFK International Airport (JFK) is looking for lounge operator partners for its upcoming New Terminal One (NTO) project. The ambitious development's first phase is currently scheduled to open in 2026 and, upon completion in 2030, will become JFK's largest terminal facility.

The New Terminal One at JFK has launched a request for proposals (RFP) for two lounges spaces, one consisting of 9,100 sq ft after security and the other a 4,000 sq ft space before security. The $9.5 billion first phase of development, part of a wider $19 billion regeneration plan in partnership with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, is well underway and will realize what is hoped to be the centerpiece of a global standard-setting JFK Airport.

The larger 9,100 sq ft lounge is described as being "very close" to the security checkpoint and is located at the heart of the terminal's headhouse. Proposals will be required to follow the project's diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) targets, defined as 30% minority and women-owned and 10% local business participation.
