Airport F&B specialist Fraport USA is to launch seven New York-based dining concepts to airline JetBlue’s home terminal – T5 at New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport.
The new dining concepts cover more than 7,200ft2 (670m2) of space and represent the biggest refresh to the concession program since JetBlue opened its brand-new terminal a decade ago.
“As New York’s hometown airline, we want to provide customers traveling through T5 with fresh, new authentic tastes of New York,” said Mariya Stoyanova, director product development, JetBlue.
“In addition to supporting local New York restaurants, we also want to support up-and-coming businesses the same way the greater New York community did for us over the past 19 years. This marks the first major update to our T5 restaurants in a decade. We’re sure these will be delicious additions to the T5 menus.”
Fraport USA will bring some of New York’s favorites to the dining scene at T5 this winter, including: Shake Shack, a modern-day version of a roadside burger joint; Otto’s Tacos, New York’s best Mexican taqueria; and The Little Beet, which focuses local, seasonal and natural ingredients.
“We are thrilled to announce these exciting additions to JetBlue’s concessions program at T5,” said Ben Zandi, president and CEO of Fraport USA. “We’re focused on enhancing the passenger experience through additional dining options for the JetBlue customer. These original concepts reflect the culture and vibrancy of this great city and are beloved by New York locals and visitors alike.”
