Travel Tip of the Day: Upcoming JFK Runway Construction Project

JFKUpcoming JFK Runway Construction Project
I usually try to avoid New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) at all costs during rush hour and bad weather—but this year you might want to avoid it period. That’s because the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has begun a runway improvement construction project that’s expected to continue through the end of 2015. Beginning June 1, 2015 runway 4L-22R will be closed to facilitate the completion of their project. The airport will still have three runways in operation but you can expect lengthy delays during peak times. If you do fly out of JFK, be sure to check your flight status before leaving for the airport.

  1. I find the advice to call your airline as your flight might be late. Has anyone every been told to come the airport later – I haven’t. The answer is always you need to be here on time just in case the departure time gets better. (Of course it never does). And if you don’t meet the checkin deadline for the scheduled departure they will cancel your reservation.
