development. The new program expands the total number of stores we operate in
this terminal from 10 to 14."
Noted Alain Maca, President of JFKIAT, LLC, the management company for

our terminal the new home of Delta Air Lines at JFK, is that passengers can
now enjoy a post-security environment for shopping and dining. Hudson's team
has worked closely with our group to deliver a world-class program that will
appeal to our diverse passenger mix."

The Victoria's Secret brand features a range of functional-yet-chic
accessories that add an extra pop of glamour to business trips and weekend
getaways alike. Customers will love the branded cosmetic cases and multi-use
fashion bags. This season's colors in pebbled leather and Saffiano leather
keep her on trend in any destination! The airports' international clientele
can also obtain attractive passport holders, phone wallets, travel adaptors
and ear buds, plus smart phone and tablet accessories.
Victoria's Secret gets the savvy traveler to her destination with
celebrity-level style. Completing the assortment are must-have essentials like
so-soft scarves, high-quality sunglasses and those perfect, signature
Victoria's Secret panties. It's an incredible way to track down last-minute
gifts or spend a long layover shopping on the fly.
The JFK T4 store surrounds every customer with undeniable luxury. The
storefront boasts an air of sophistication, while the interior features
upscale elements like black-cherry fixtures and eye-catching focal walls. The

sexy, sophisticated and forever young.
