JFK's newest terminal is planning a future where all ground equipment is 100% emissions-free.

The New Terminal One development project at New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) has issued a tender for an all-electric fleet of ground service equipment with the goal of acquiring the vehicles ahead of the terminal’s scheduled open date of 2026.

Charging stations will be built to support sustainable ground vehicles at New Terminal One.

The New Terminal One launched the request for proposals (RFP) in February 2024, asking companies to bid and provide, manage, and maintain ground service vehicles for five years, with two renewal options of two years each being offered as well, making the maximum term of up to nine years. 

New Terminal One is part of $19 billion transformation project, which should be completed by 2030.
