terminals have restricted access in PANYNJ

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has announced its decision to begin restricting terminal access at John F. Kennedy, Newark Liberty and LaGuardia airports.  

Only ticketed passengers, airport employees and those who otherwise demonstrate a need to enter the facility for airport business will be granted entry.

Due to COVID-19 related shifts in flight and passenger activity, changes in the airports’ operations, security, cleaning and maintenance protocols and social distancing directives, PANYNJ will temporarily limit the terminal access at the region’s three major airports. This policy will remain in place through the duration of the emergency orders from New York and New Jersey.

Port Authority Police will be available to assist in monitoring access to the terminals through the duration of the emergency orders.

People entering a terminal may be asked to provide evidence of a reason for entry, including:

  • A ticket, boarding pass, flight reservation or comparable item for a flight departing from that airport
  • An airport identification card (airport employee ID)
  • Documentation that a person is a vendor, contractor or otherwise doing authorised business within the terminal.
