If you are planning to visit New York City and traveling by flight, there’s a good chance that you’re flying into JFK airport being that it’s the primary international airport. JFK airport serves about 59 million passengers annually, and while there is no hotel inside or connected to the airport, TWA can be found a few minutes away from Terminal 5. Making it quite convenient for corporate event planners in New York to choose this venue and its facilities to block rooms for a conference or other business functions.
