  • Airtrain to JFK
    Jun 25, 2015

    I have a 16 hour layover at JFK from 5.30pm to 7.30 am of the next day. I was thinking of going to Manhattan to kill some time and return back around 2-3 am to JFK to get some rest. Will the Airtrain from Jamaica Station be open at that time? And will I be able to enter terminal 8 at that time?

     

    The Airtrain runs 24 hours a day but make sure to check the schedule for the train to Jamaica Station. Security will be closed at that time, so you'll have to find a spot outside security either in the check in hall or baggage claim. Maybe read this -http://www.sleepinginairports.net/usa/newyorkjfk.htm I'd suggest spending the night in Terminal 1 or 5 instead.

     

  • Transfer to EWR

    Hello, I will land at JFK airport Terminal 4 on July 3 at 15.50 and I have to continue my flight after commuting to Newark Liberty Intl at 19.25. Will I have to pick up the checked baggage and take it with me to EWR? Is there a way to deliver the baggage already at JFK? Plus, do I have enough time considering I will have to go through customs and immigration and then redeliver the baggage at EWR? And what ground transportation would you recommend on such a tight schedule? Thank you for your help

     

    Yes, you will have to pick up your baggage at JFK and take it with you to EWR. At that time of the day it will take you almost 2 hours to get to Newark regardless of how you go, so figuring in 45 minutes to go through immigration at JFK that puts you at EWR at 17.35, so enough time. The best option considering that July 3 is the beginning of a holiday weekend and traffic will be horrible is probably taking the JFK Airtrain to the LIRR to Penn Station to the NJT to the EWR AirTrain.

     

    Thank you so much for your prompt and accurate reply. So I guess I'll have to cross my fingers and hope that immigration doesn't take longer than 45 minutes.

    Travelling JFK to DEN via MSP on Saturday, flight leaves at 11:00. Coming from Jersey and taking LIRR to AirTrain to the Delta terminal. If the AirTrain is scheduled to arrive at 9:42 will I have enough time to go through security? Not checking any bags, just carry-ons

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Check your flight status on Delta.com or Delta app to make sure you get off at the right station (Delta operates from T2 and T4).

    I have a flight from Oslo to JFK arriving on Sunday the 21st at 8:30pm, and a bus departing from the Port Autority bus terminal at 10:15pm. Will I have enough time to my bag and get through customs and take a cab or bus to the bus terminal? Thanks for the advice.

     

    It's possible. You'll really have to hurry. The fact that it will be a Sunday night will help.

  • AirTrain and LIRR ticket purchase at JFK

    My flight lands at JFK at 11:40 AM this Sunday. After going through immigration and baggage claim, I will probably be out of the terminal between 1 and 2 PM. I want to take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station and then take the LIRR to Penn Station. I have a few questions and I would appreciate if someone can answer them: 1. Is 1 and 2 PM on a Sunday considered peak time? 2. Since I am exiting the AirTrain at Jamaica and taking the LIRR from there, where do I purchase the tickets? At the airport terminal or at Jamaica station? 3. How much are the tickets and can I pay with card? 4. How frequently does the LIRR run? How long will I have to wait for it at Jamaica?

  • Layover between JFK and LGA

    Hello! My cousins are coming to visit me in Turkey. Their flight back from Turkey to JFK gets into terminal 4 at 4:36 p.m. Their connecting flight leaves out of LGA at 7:35 p.m. Will this be enough time to get off the plane, go through customs (they will not have bags to claim), find a way to LGA and get checked in for their flight? I'm thinking it will be cutting it close? Any suggestions for the most reliable way to get from JFK to LGA in rush hour traffic?? Thanks for any input!

     

    Yes on arrival at JFK they need to go thru passport check, & customs before exiting the terminal. To get to LGA they have the options of taking a metered taxi orlimo, both take about 30 mins; or call the folowing three services, all of which take 45-60 mins: ETS Air Shuttle 718-221-5341; All County Express 914-381-4223 or 516-285-1300; NYC Airporter 718-777-5111.

     

    Thanks for your reply....do you recommend any of the services more?

    Please, from terminal 1 to terminal 2, with no time to waste, is it more faster to go on Air Train Jamaica station instead on Air train terminas transfer? Is it feasible and free? (or in desperation is it possible to walk between these terminals? Thanks.

     

    It is not possible to walk between terminals. Just follow the signs to Terminal 2. Inter-terminal train transfers are free.
