"It will feature extensive new concessions. Most of them iconic, local concessions, more than doubling the offerings available in the old facility. The Public Art Fund, a renowned leader in the civic and public art world, curated an outstanding collection of four permanent public art installations," said Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton.

The terminal serves Air Canada, American, United and Southwest Airlines.
