Terminal 8 is twice the size of Madison Square Garden in NYC the terminal can handle nearly 13 million passengers annually. The Terminal 8 project will improve the overall customer experience, with a total of 70,400 square feet of added space including 33,000 square feet of public space. Another 57,500 square feet of existing space will be refurbished. New amenities include premium lounges (for American Airlines and British Airways), enhanced baggage systems, premium check-in space and upgraded concessions. There will be five additional wide-body gates to allow for more transatlantic flights and four nearby on-airfield plane parking / unloading areas to accommodate the added flights. The project will also involve the relocation of barriers and underground facilities, extensions to the new concourse, and new supporting infrastructure.
