Seven new upscale retail stores have opened up for business at John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport’s Terminal 4.

World-renowned retailers Michael Kors, Travelex, Thomas Pink, Hugo Boss, Victoria’s Secret, Coach, Inc. and Swarovski are now available for travelers wishing to shop at the airport.

“As the premier international terminal at New York’s JFK Airport, we are thrilled to offer this mix of world-renowned brands to our airlines and their passengers,” said Gert-Jan de Graaff, president and CEO of JFKIAT, LLC, the company that operates Terminal 4.  “We are happy to provide retailers who are willing to offer the best names and products in the world right here at JFK’s Terminal 4.”
