In response to the steady increase in international airline services, Stewart International Airport in New York State is adding a wing to its existing main terminal.
Construction is under way on the 20,000 ft2 (1,858 m2 ) extension, completion of which is set for 2020. The facility will require no new gates or passenger boarding bridges, but Jane’s learned that it will require a new baggage-handling system, although a supplier is not yet named.

J Jokolakis Contracting is the general contractor; PANYNJ designers and architects are working with HNTB.
