JetBlue made John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) their home in 2000 and is now the largest carrier operating at the airport. JetBlue’s Terminal 5 made its grand opening on October 22, 2008 and was one of the first terminals in North America to be completely designed and constructed since September 11, 2001. JetBlue’s Gensler and Associates-designed Terminal 5 surrounds Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA terminal. The design of the JetBlue terminal complements Saarinen’s emulation of aviation history as well as his classic modernist style. Inside Terminal 5, customers encounter a comfortable and efficient travel experience, including a central Marketplace with grandstands, shopping, dining, free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating areas and a children’s play area.
SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring was contacted by Gensler and Associates to provide a non-slip stainless steel plate for JetBlue Terminal 5’s steps of the Marketplace grandstands. Gensler and Associates serve as a worldwide network of architects, designers, planners and consultants. Their work reflects the belief that design is one of the most powerful tools in helping their clients achieve success.
