The JFK International Airport Chamber of Commerce will hold a commemorative luncheon to celebrate two remarkable milestones:
The 50th anniversary of the naming of John F. Kennedy International Airport to honor the memory of President John F. Kennedy assassinated in November, 1963, and
The achievement of 50 million passengers to travel through JFK International Airport in 2013 and equally impressive the vast number of air imports; 6th in the United States and 17th worldwide.
A commemorative journal will be published to memorialize the occasion.
Aviation maverick and industry pioneer, David Neeleman, whose career is credited with building five airlines, returns to JFK to speak about his experiences. As a founder of jetBlue, New York’s hometown carrier, David spent a decade growing an airline right here at JFK.
