NEW YORK–Thanks to a generous donation from JetBlue, the USO of Metropolitan New York opened an airport center Wednesday in Terminal 5 of John F. Kennedy International Airport.
“JetBlue is excited to bring a USO Center back to JFK,” JetBlue Airways CEO Dave Barger said in a release. “We put the call out to our partners and they overwhelming answered. Gensler designed the space, Turner Construction Company built it, and a generous donation from the Port Authority [of New York and New Jersey] allowed us to provide a fully functioning lounge for the USO and our service people.”
The lounge features a plethora of donated items, including computers, TVs, gaming stations, iPads, snacks and even arrivals and departures boards so troops and families don’t have to worry about missing flights. The lounge is on the street level of Terminal 5’s arrivals area, directly across from baggage carousel No. 2.
