China’s flag airline Air China and The New Terminal One at JFK have launched a partnership to collaborate on New York’s new global gateway to elevate the travel experience for Chinese customers visiting the United States.

The New Terminal One, a dedicated international terminal that is being constructed in partnership with The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s $19 billion redevelopment of JFK Airport, will partner with Air China with the objective of providing a world-class experience for Chinese customers at the premier global gateway scheduled to open in 2026.

Jennifer Aument, The New Terminal One at JFK Chief Executive Officer said: “We are honored to collaborate with our colleagues at Air China to jointly deliver an extraordinary travel experience for Chinese customers visiting New York.

“Service to the Asia Pacific region is a strong priority for us and we are delighted to learn from Air China as we position ourselves to be the international terminal of choice for Chinese travelers to New York.”

Zhiyong Wang, Air China New York General Manager said: “New York is one of our most important markets globally and we are committed to offering our customers a world-class travel experience when they fly to the Big Apple.

“Our partnership with The New Terminal One will create mutual benefits as we continue to evaluate our growth in this key market.”

Air China currently serves the existing Terminal 1 at JFK Airport, connecting Beijing and New York, two of the world’s most important cities.

The New Terminal One, whose first phase is scheduled to open in June 2026, will be a new global gateway to New York and the United States.
