    Hi! I plan to book a flight to JFK fr MNL on PR arriving at JFK terminal 1 at 0700. I have a connecting flight to BOS on DL. I'm wondering if the flight that will depart at 1030 would be feasible considering that I have to pass with immigration and customs or will i book the flight that departs @ 1300? Pls help.

     

    The 1030 flight should be possible.

    We have booked flights from LHR to Orlando through JFK. We arrive at 12:25 at T7 and are due due fly out at 13:59 from T8. Will we have enough time and will we need to go through customs and immigration?

     

    That should be barely enough time.

    from Delta T2 to Hawaiian T5 with 1 hour between flights. no checked baggage, will I have enough time? what's the fastest way to get from T2 to T5?

     

    Get your Hawaiian boarding pass online before you leave on your first flight, you may get there after check-in cutoff. The only way to get between the terminals is on the AirTrain. You have enough time but it's cutting it pretty close.

    Travelling from Toronto through JFK on Delta Connection flight T2, connecting on Delta to Zurich T4. One hour connection. December 2014. All on one ticket purchased from Delta. Customs cleared at departure in Toronto. Bags checked through to Zurich. Is one hour enough time? Winter time travel.

     

    Yes, it is enough time but it doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays. T2 and T4 are connected inside security by a shuttle bus.

  • Delta to British

    In Jan 2015 I am flying SJU-JFK on Delta arriving at 3:58pm and connecting to British Airways to LHR, departing 7:20pm. I bought the whole ticket through Orbitz. Will I have to take out the luggage and recheck the bags at British Airways or will Delta check them through? And the BA boarding pass? What do I have to? Is this enough time?Thank you in advance

     

    Yes, since you purchased one reservation DL should tag your bags through to BA. You won't have to do anything with them in JFK. You will have to take the ATS train from T4 to T7, get your boarding pass, and go through security. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi there. I have a flight from YYZ -> JFK -> NRT on 15 Dec. The flight arrives at JFK Terminal 7 and connects with a flight in Terminal 1. If using the airtrain to get from 1-7 will it be within security or outside of it. If it is outside of security will checked bags still be transferred to the connecting flight? Lastly, is two hours enough time to make the connection. Thank you.

     

    The Airtrain runs outside security. However, if bags are checked through to NRT they will still be transferred for you. Yes, 2 hours should be enough time.

    Hi ZAP Today our plane departure in ZRH got changed so that we have less connecting time at JFK. It's only 1 h 57 min. We're flying with Delta. Is that enough time for immigration, customs, security and a terminal change? It's on Good Friday 2015. And I saw that some flights to Tampa are leaving from terminal 4....? Thank you so much for your help!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, more Delta flights are now using T4 and fewer are using T2.

     

    Thanks! Happy holidays!

     

  • Will my baggage be put on to my connecting flight for me?

    Next year I will be travelling alone to from London Heathrow UK to Bogota, Colombia via JFK New York. I am wondering whether my checked baggage will automatically be put on to my connecting flight to Bogota at JFK, or will I have to go through baggage reclaim and check it in again myself? I am keen to find out for definite before I go as this will be my first experience of a connecting flight! Many thanks!

     

    If buying your 2 flights on one ticket, your bags will automatically be transferred to your connecting flight after you went through passport check, picked up your bags & went through customs clearance, then re-checked in your bags at JFK. Otherwise find out from your first airline if they will transfer to your second flight. (if not you would need to take your bags to the connecting terminal to check it in there). I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text, for all the information you will need about JFK; if interested in Bogota Airport, open www.ifly.com/bog.

     

    You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, whether you buy two separate tickets or buy one reservation.

     

    thank you very much, I'll check that out now :)

    Hi Zap..Im travelling from MUM to MEX via JFK on Emirates (and AeroMexico). My baggage has a through checkin as mentioned by Emirates. The tag is till Mexico. However, I wanted to know if baggage retrieval + customs is necessary in JFK. Bit confused on this. I have a 2.45 Hrs time between connections & terminals (Arrival in T4, Departure from T1).Please advise

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in JFK. THen you will re-check them at the transfer desk when you exit customs.

    Well, as the title states, I am planning to travel to USA on January For my outbound flight back to Europe, I am thinking about two flights SFCO --> JFK JFK --> MAD The connection in JFK is 2 hours Assuming no delays, should this be enough? Both are American Airlines flights, both deparing/landing Terminal 8 I dont need to clear any customs on outbound flights correct? Thanks a lot

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I will arrive at Terminal 1 by Air China and connect to JetBlue, where can I re-check in my baggages at Terminal 1?

     

    forgot to say that I purchase the all tickets from the same agent and all transfers are supposed to label when I first check in.

     

    You will re-check your bags at the transfer desk after you exit customs.

     

    Thanks a lot.

    I am arriving on AA from Toronto at terminal 4 and have a connecting flight on Qatar Airways. Will my luggage be checked through from Toronto? only 2 hours to connect so wondering if I will need more?

     

    AA does not use terminal 4. Please double check your airline. AA uses terminal 8. If you bought tickets together your bags will be checked through after you preclear u.s. Customs in Toronto. You have plenty of time

    Yes. That is enough time your flight to New Orleans will depart from terminal 2 and be operated be Delta.

     

  • Grenada to New Delhi

    Hi, I am flying from Grenada to New Delhi via JFK on 6th Dec 2014. Grenada to JFK is Caribbean Airlines reaching Terminal 4 JFK to New Delhi is Air India, again departing from Terminal 4 1. The stopover is for 2.5 hours. Is that enough? 2. Do I need to checkout the baggage at JFK and check-in again, since these are 2 different airlines? 3. Hopefully not, but just wanted to confirm if I need a Transit visa?

     

    2.5 hours is really pushing the limit of what is possible for such a connection. Yes, you will have to claim your bags and re-check them. If you are a Grenadian or Indian citizen you need a transit visa.

     

    Thanks for the info. Yes, I am an Indian citizen. Surprising that even for transfer within terminal 4, a transit visa is required! One more thing...Do they give transit visa on arrival, as it may not be possible for me to arrange for one, now!?

     

    No, the u.s. Does not offer visa on arrival. You should have done more research before you booked your trip.
