SAS commits to New York JFK’s New Terminal One

The New Terminal One at New York John F Kennedy International Airport has announced a partnership with SAS, enabling the Scandinavian airline to operate from the new world-class international terminal scheduled to open in 2026.

SAS is the eighth airline to commit to operating at The New Terminal One, an all-international terminal that its backers believe will transform the global gateway to New York and the United States.

The New Terminal One is being constructed in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s $19 billion redevelopment of JFK Airport.

With hubs in Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, SAS flies to more than 130 destinations in 34 countries in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa.

The carrier launched service to New York JFK in February 2023, currently operating up to two daily service from Copenhagen with the Airbus A321 long range aircraft.

It  currently flies to JFK Terminal 1 and its service will seamlessly transition to The New Terminal One, scheduled to open in 2026.

“We are delighted that SAS has chosen The New Terminal One to take their New York JFK service to the next level,” enthused Jennifer Aument, CEO of The New Terminal One.

“Our state-of-the-art terminal will offer international guests an exceptional experience when visiting the iconic city of New York and we look forward to working with the team at SAS to redefine their guests’ journey to our global gateway.”

SAS is the fourth airline to partner with the New Terminal One since the start of 2024, following EVA Air, Air Serbia and Air China.

Five other airlines had previously committed to operating at The New Terminal One: Air France, Etihad, LOT Polish Airlines, KLM and Korean Air.

The first phase of the terminal, comprising the headhouse and an initial 14 gates, is scheduled to open in 2026.

In March 2024, The New Terminal One marked its topping off milestone, placing the beam of steel for the highest point of the terminal. Upon completion in 2030.

The complex will be the largest terminal at New York JFK, anchoring the south side of the airport which is undergoing a $19 billion redevelopment.
