Construction of Phase II of the JFK Terminal 4 Expansion has commenced. Once completed, most of Delta's New York JFK operations will be located in T4. With the reduction in the number of passengers that need to transfer between T2 and T4, the previously proposed T2 to T4 secure connector has been converted to a more economical busing operation.

Phase I expansion of New York JFK's Airport has been completed and Delta has shifted operations from T3 to T4. It still has operations at T2.
The secure connector has now been changed to a bus connection as Delta relocate most of its operations to T4 once Phase II has been completed. It is anticipated that there will be less transfers needed once most of Delta's operations are in T4.
