JetBlue is delaying the public opening of their new terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport to Oct. 22 from Oct. 1.

JetBlue spokeswoman Alison Eshelman said the operational opening was delayed to give its Marketplace vendors more time to complete necessary work. The Forest Hills, N.Y.-based carrier said the construction of the terminal was on schedule.

JetBlue Airways Corp. currently operates out of JFK's Terminal 6. The new Terminal 5 is attached to the landmarked TWA terminal that closed in 2001.
