The John F. Kennedy International Airport is the biggest of the three airports that serve New York City. More than 90 airlines fly in and out of JFK, which dealt with an impressive 59 million people in 2017. In fact, there are just five airports in the whole of the U.S. that handle more passengers.
But JFK didn’t always go by its current moniker. When it was first opened in 1948, it was called New York International Airport. It was also referred to as Idlewild Airport until the tragic shooting of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 brought about a change in its name.
