As we continue to update the T4 community with important, available information regarding COVID-19, it is our goal to show appreciation for those who make up the T4 family. In our series entitled “Heroes of T4,” we’re highlighting the inspirational and heartwarming actions of employees who ensure the safety and security of all passengers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the coming weeks, you can look out for more of these stories as we share them on our digital channels.  


Rafael Olszewski– Duty Manager, Swissport

Through his role as Swissport Passenger Service Duty Manager, Rafal has called T4 his “second home” for 16 years. During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rafal supported the T4 community by “providing employees with masks, gloves and hand sanitizers and encouraging social distancing as much as possible.” Rafal says the management team provided constant updates on the crisis and considered the safety of staff and passengers a top priority.   

Describing T4 as a unique place, Rafal says, “It’s been a pleasure to see how T4 works together to provide the best customer service. I am proud to be a part of this team.

T4 Tip

T4 Tip

T4 is a work of art. Really! You’ll find our private collection of world-class paintings, sculptures, and mobiles on display throughout the terminal.

With ongoing roadway construction at JFK Airport, your journey may have significant delays.

We recommend our T4 guests to allow some extra time to reach the terminal. Travelers are also encouraged to pre-book parking 48 hours in advance to guarantee parking and avoid the surcharge by clicking here. Alternatively, parking is available at Federal Circle, and take a transfer from there to T4 with the AirTrain.

Worried about long lines at security?

With Reserve powered by CLEAR, you can save your spot ahead of time and avoid the wait. No checked-in bag? You may go directly to the TSA checkpoint at level 1, on the east of the terminal.
