“A relic from the past and a vision of the future”

The TWA Flight Center or Trans World Flight Center, opened in 1962 as a standalone terminal at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) for Trans World Airlines. It was designed by Eero Saarinen.

Portions of the original complex have been demolished, and the Saarinen terminal (or head house) has been renovated, partially encircled by and serving as a ceremonial entrance to a new adjacent terminal completed in 2008. Together, the old and new buildings comprise JetBlue Airways' JFK operations and are known collectively as Terminal 5 or simply T5. The City of New York designated both the interiors and the exteriors of the Saarinen terminal a historic landmark in 1994 and in 2005 the National Park Service listed the Trans World Flight Center on the National Register of Historic Places.

The terminal—an innovative example of thin-shell concrete-and-glass construction—ceased operations when TWA went bankrupt for a third, and final time, in 2001. In 2016, JetBlue, along with a hotel partner, began the process of renovating the defunct terminal and constructing two brand new hotel wings behind it. On May 15, thousands of people attended the opening ceremony, which took place just a few hours before the hotel officially opened its 512 rooms to guests.
