The New Terminal One at New York John F Kennedy International Airport has launched its latest request for proposals (RFP)

The new RFP is calling on providers of snow removal and snow melting services both landside on access roadways to the terminal and airside, by gates and ramps.

The New Terminal One (NTO), constructed in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey as part of the agency's $19bn redevelopment of JFK Airport, seeks qualified providers for snow removal services to ensure safe, efficient and low environmental impact snow and ice removal services for all areas in the terminal, including arrival and departure roadways and exterior pathways and uncovered walkable areas.

The NTO is looking for a supplier with a track record of safety, exceptional service, and sustainability (utilising electric/low emission vehicles where available). RFP participants must also outline how they will fulfil The Port Authority’s and New Terminal One's objectives of 30% participation from minority and women-owned business enterprises, and 10% from local businesses.

“Our commitment to excellence at The New Terminal One extends to all areas of our operations, including preparation for hazardous weather and snow to maintain top-tier performance at all times," said Simon Gandy, executive vice president and chief operating officer of The New Terminal One.
