JFKIAT, which operates John Kennedy International Airport’s (JFK) Terminal 4, announced the availability of Google Indoor Live View at Terminal 4, making it the first terminal in the New York metro area with this innovative technology. The technology provides travelers with an interactive tool to easily navigate the largest terminal at the airport.
In 2021, Google Maps launched Indoor Live View to transform navigation through large and complex indoor spaces and facilities. Travelers can now use the technology at T4, which encompasses more than 2 million square feet, to quickly find the closest restrooms, lounges, taxi stands, and more with confidence.
“As the world’s gateway to New York City, JFK T4 sees thousands of passengers from all over the world every day,” said Roel Huinink, president and CEO of JFKIAT. “We are continually looking for new ways to offer the best possible travel experience at T4, and we are very pleased to launch this partnership with Google to make it easier for our passengers to navigate the terminal more seamlessly.”
Live View in Google Maps is powered by a technology called global localization, which uses AI to scan tens of billions of street view images to understand a user’s orientation.
