A New Home for Lost Luggage

In mid-September, American Airlines officially began to conduct all of its operations out of what is now known as Terminal 8 at JFK airport. The new terminal is approximately 1.58-million-square-feed and includes a new U.S. Customs and Immigration facility that can handle 1,600 travelers per hour, with security checkpoints capable of handling 1,800 travelers per hour, expanded ticketing positions and self-service check-in machines, as well as a state-of-the-art, in-line security baggage system to expedite passenger processing times. Estimates are projecting that the terminal will handle almost 13 million passengers per year.
