  • 1:40 min is enough time? CTG-JFK on JetBlue T5 & JFK-LAX T5 JetBl
    Jul 28, 2015

    I & my almost 2 years old daughter will arrive to JFK at 7:42PM on 8/19 (Wednesday). JFK will be our point of entry to the US. We arrive in Terminal 5 on JetBlue and then we have hour connection flight departing at 9:30. Is this hour and 40 minutes enough time to go trough immigrations, claim bags, customs ,re-check bags and then go through TSA security and departure gate also in terminal 5. How long does it usually take to do this process (average min or max)? Please help, if it is not enough time I would like to cancel my purchase during the first 24 hours. Thanks

     

    That should be barely enough time. The Immigration facilities in Terminal 5 are rarely too crowded because Jetblue does not fly big planes and they are currently the only ones using that facility.

    Is 55 minutes enough time to get from jet blue to air linges. do you have to go thru security . I land in terminal 5 and go out terminal 5

     

    No, you will not have to go through security - you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal 5. It's enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Transit time from Terminal 8 to 7 travelling to Japan is 1 hr. enough?

    I am traveling from Bermuda to Bangkok via Toyko on aug. 12. I arrive at terminal 8 (customs is already cleared) and have a Nippon flight at 12:30 leaving from Terminal 7. Is it likely that I can make that connect traveling by taxi between the two? Any inifomration would be helpful.

     

    you cannot take a taxi between Terminals. You have to take the AirTrain. It's barely possible if you have no checked luggage (or your baggage is already checked through to Bangkok), you are already checked in for your flight to Tokyo, and your flight from Bermuda arrives on-time.

     

    ZAP, thanks for your information on transferring from terminal 7 to 8. I have walked it once but had lots of time. I will play it safe and fly up the day before.

    I am traveling from SFO to HYD India through Ethihad airways. My flight lands in NY AT 20.08 IN TERMINAL 5. I have a connecting flight in NY AT 22.40 TO AUH IN TERMINAL 4. My baggage is all checked in at SFO. Will I have to collect my baggage in-between the flights and check it in again? If so Do i have enough time to reach the Terminal 4 with security check? Am i going to miss my flight? I need help.

     

    If both tickets were purchased together you will not have to claim your bags in JFK. All you have to do is take the AirTrain from T5 to T4 and go through security. You should have plenty of time.

    Hi, our Air France flight will arrive at Terminal T1 at 16:15. Then we'll take a domestic flight from Terminal T2 at 19:40. The question is: is there enough time to accomplish all the necessary operations (immigration, baggage claim, terminal transfer, check in, etc)? Thank you

     

    That should be enough time. If both tickets were bought on the same reservation you can re-check your bags at the re-check desk after clearing customs in T1. If you purchased two separate tickets, you can show your Delta confirmation to the Air France agent upon check-in and they should check your bag through to your final destination. You will still have to claim it to go through US Customs in JFK but you can use the re-check desk in T1 and avoid having to take it to T2 and paying a checked bag fee for the domestic flight. Also please note that Delta operates domestic flights from both T2 and T4. If your flight number begins with a 4 it will probably leave from T4.

    Hi, I have a Jetblue (T5) connection with TAM (T8) to Brazil on a Thursday. Jetblue and TAM are partners, and I bought my tickets at TAM website. How do I get from T5 to T8? How long it takes? Do I need to pick up my checked bags or I just see them in Brazil? Thanks iin advance.

     

    You will take the AirTrain from T5 to T8. Since you purchased your tickets your bags should be checked through to Brazil by JetBlue and you shouldn't have to do anything with them at JFK. You will have to go through security in T8.

    Hi, Our Air France flight arrives into T4 and 90mins later our Delta flight departs from the same terminal. Will I have to collect my baggage in-between the flights and check it in again, and if so, does 90 minutes give us a enough time?

     

    Air France flights do not arrive in Terminal 4. They arrive in Terminal 1. However, if your flight is a codeshare operated by Delta it will arrive in Terminal 4. Yes, if you do arrive in T4 and your first flight is International you will go though US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    I have a tight connection (all domestic, no checked bag). How much time do I need to get from T8 to T5 on a Saturday assuming no delays? Thanks in advance

     

    I would consider 70 minutes the minimum time for a connection like that.

    Hi we are arriving from Tampa to terminal 4 and leaving on an Air France flight from Terminal1. We have only 80 mins between flights but it is on 1 ticket and booked right through. Is this enough time to connect and how do we get from Terminal 1 to T4

     

    You take the AirTrain from T4 to T1. You should have enough time. you will have to go through security again in T1.

    Hi there! I've booked a flight (same ticket) with a 2:30 h connection in JFK from a domestic flight and an intl flight (by two different carriers at two different terminals). My question is- what am I need to do at JFK? Is it just going through security (since I'll check in for both in advance) and border control? Do I need to pick up my luggage as well? Thank you very much!

     

    All you have to do is take the AirTrain from your arrival terminal to your departure terminal and go through security. You should have plenty of time. There is no US Border control when leaving the US.

    Hi I'm arriving to T4 JFK from Iceland and going to Orlando from T2 JFK do I need to pick up my check-in bag at the baggage claim down stairs or can I go straight from T4 to T2 when I arrive and also is it easy to travel from T4 to T2 this is my first time in JFK :)

     

    You will arrive in T4, go though US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then either go through security in T4 and take the Delta shuttle bus to T2 or take the AirTrain to T2 and go through security there.

    I'm arriving on Virgin, then leaving on a Delta flight to CHS 1 hr 40 minutes later. Is that enough time? Am flying on a single ticket, with baggage checked through, in mid September.

     

    That should be barely enough time. You will have to claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check it at the re-check desk.

    Hi, my family arrives LA530 from Lima to JFK at Terminal8 at 10:31am They need to take SU101 to Moscow from Terminal1 at 2:20pm is it enough time ? considering migration, customs, transfer and new check in?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be at Aeroflot check in by noon at the latest.

     

  • Terminal transfer with luggages

    I am arriving by Jetblue connecting for Emirates after more than eight hours at a different terminal, and Jetblue is refusing to transfer automatically. If I have to pick up my luggage and transfer myself what is the best option? I will be traveling alone possibly with two or three pieces of luggage.

     

    Just collect your bags and drag them to the AIrTrain and to Terminal 4. It shouldn't be that difficult considering that you have several hours.
