NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on Delta's substantial investment at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport Terminal 4 and the success of investments at Delta's Terminal D and Terminal C in New York's LaGuardia Airport, Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) is launching a new chef-driven food and beverage program at JFK Terminal 2.
"We know a positive travel experience includes the time that customers spend in our airports which is why we've spent nearly $2 billion over the last few years on improvements at LaGuardia, the new Terminal 4 at JFK and this new program at Terminal 2," said Gail Grimmett, Delta's senior vice president – New York. " After hearing so much positive feedback from our customers about the food, technology and retail options that we have implemented at LaGuardia, we decided to bring the program to JFK Terminal 2 so even more of our customers can enjoy the benefits."
In May, Delta opened the new Terminal 4 expansion as the first phase of a $1.4 billion redevelopment at JFK. T4 features nine new and seven renovated gates, a redesigned lobby that includes a dedicated Sky Priority check in area, a 24,000-square-foot Delta Sky Club with the first-ever outdoor Sky Deck and restaurants from top names including Danny Meyer and Marcus Samuelsson.The new program at Terminal 2 will include seven food and beverage concepts, fresh markets, coffee shops, concierge services and the integration of Apple iPads in the new restaurants to make it easy and convenient for travelers to order food and drinks, shop, monitor their flight information and stay connected. Some of the biggest names in New York culinary talent will be developing concepts for Terminal 2, including Andrew Carmellini of Lafayette and the Dutch, Ceasare Casella of Salumeria Rosi, Laurent Tourondel of Brasserie Ruhlmann and Arlington Club, and Robby Cook of Morimoto. The terminal's transformation also includes new retail additions, with NYC-focused products and high-end tech and travel gear.
