JetBlue Airways now offers access to the T5 Rooftop at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, where customers can step outside while they wait for their flights, according to a press release published Wednesday.

Constructed by design firm Gensler, the T5 Rooftop offers free Wi-Fi and is surrounded by plants, including oakleaf hydrangeas, lilyturf, and sweetspire. The park measures 4,046 square feet, offers seating for 50 people, and overlooks the Manhattan skyline. The park is also open to all passengers—not only those flying first class.

“As rooftop bars, sunbathing, and summer enjoyment are such a big part of living in New York City, we wanted to bring this unique aspect to customers traveling through T5,” said Jamie Perry, vice president of brand and product development at JetBlue.
