    I arrive from Portland OR on Delta domestic flight and have 45 minutes to get from Gate D11 to Gate B34 to depart on Delta international flight to Madrid. What terminal is D11 located in? Gate B34 is located in T4 - will I have enough time


    I believe D11 is your departure gate from Portland. Your flight from Portland could arrive in Terminal 2 or 4. If you arrive in Terminal 2 Delta runs a shuttle inside security to Terminal 4. You have enough time if your flight from Portland is on-time.

    I have a flight from Mexico City, Mexico in AeroMexio which arrives in terminal 1. I have a connecting flight to Dubai on Emirates in Terminal 4. Are there Eremites transfer desk where I can checkin my baggage and get boarding pass in Terminal 1 or should I take my bags and go to Terminal 4 to the Emirates desk. What transportation is available for terminal transportation.


    You will have to take your bags with you to Terminal 4, re-check them, and go through security. The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security.


    My flight arrives at 7:20am at terminal 1 and my flight to Dubai tghrough Emirates flight at terminal4 is at 11:20am. Will this time be enough to clear immigration and customs and get to the other terminal by AirTran.


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I am flying with American Airlines from LAX to JFK on May 14th arriving at 4:38 PM. I have a connecting flight with American Airlines at 5:29 PM to go to Paris Charles de Gaulle. Is it possible ??


    Yes, that is possible. As long as both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 8.

    Yes, that is enough time. You will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security in JFK.

    Hi, I'm flying in from Toronto to New York with delta, I land in NY at 7:50am. I have a flight I have to catch at 8:37 am from NY to Aruba also on delta. Do I need to check in again and go through security again? I'm a Canadian citizen. Do I have enough time to make my connection?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in JFK. You should have enough time as long as your flight from Toronto is on-time.


  • Delta Terminal 4 to Altalia Termnal 1
    May 1, 2016
    No bags checked, arrive Delta terminal 4 at 3:00 and Alitalia flight leaves from terminal 1 at 4:20. Can I make it?


    It is possible but leaves no time to spare as you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1.


  • Enough time for connection ?
    Apr 30, 2016
    I have a reservation for a Delta flight that arrives at JFK Terminal 4 at 7:00 pm with a connection to an Alitalia flight for Milan leaving terminal 1 at 8:30 pm. Will I have to recheck luggage and do I have a chance of making this connection?


    If the first flight is domestic and both tickets are on the same reservation, then all you have to do in JFK is take the AirTrain from T4 to T1 and go through security. You can make this if the first flight is on-time.


  • Connecting flight from UK
    Apr 30, 2016
    Hi, I'm travelling with Delta from the UK to terminal 4 and then again to CVG from terminal 4, also with Delta. As a UK national, do I need to clear immigration, collect bags and recheck luggage?


    Yes, you will go through 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.

    Flying from Austin>JFK>KEF We will be on the same ticket so don't need to recheck bags. Is 2 hours enough time to catch the transfer? How far is Jetblue to Iceland Air terminal?


    You will arrive in Terminal 5, take the AirTrain to Terminal 7, and go through security. You should have enough time as long as your flight from Austin is on-time.


  • Time between Terminal 4 and 5
    Apr 29, 2016
    I have a family member traveling in May from Johannesburg on South African Airlines (Terminal 5) arriving at JFK at 6:40 AM. The connecting flight is Jet Blue which leaves Terminal 4 at 9:04. I will have one bag to collect and check. I have seat assignments for the 9:04 flight. Any concerns or tips for me?


    The terminals you have are reversed. The South African flight will arrive in Terminal 4 and the JetBlue flight will depart from Terminal 5. You have enough time. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 5.


    Thank you. I mixed them up. Will he collect his bag in Terminal 4 and need to recheck it before he goes to Terminal 5? When does he go through customs.


    When he arrives he will go through US Immigration, claim his bags and go through US Customs. If his bags are tagged through to Jetblue (both tickets were bought on the same reservation), then he will re-check the bags at the re-check desk in T4 then proceed to T5. If the bags are not tagged through to his final destination, then he will have to take them with him on the AirTrain and re-check them at the JetBlue check-in desk in T5.


  • Terminal 5 to terminal 2

    What is the fastest way to get from terminal 5 to 2? I get from Dublin, Aer Lingus, and have 45 minutes to get to Delta. Customs are clear in Ireland.


    The only way to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2 is the AirTrain and you will have to go through security when you get there. The only way you have any chance of making this connection is if you have no checked bags and your Aer Lingus flight arrives very early.


    We were carry on and made it! The flight was already boarding when we got to the gate.


  • International Connection
    Apr 29, 2016
    I am flying to Rome from JFK on American. How long do I need to make my connection when I fly in from Denver? Someone was saying 3 hours. Is that really necessary? Is there extra security for the international flight?


    Yes, 3 hours is necessary if you are purchasing two separate reservations. There is no extra security for an International flight, but it takes quite a bit of time to claim your baggage, take it to another terminal, re-check it, and go through security. Add in the fact that JFK is delay prone and I think 3 hours is a safe bet.


  • T5 to T7 connection time 1:15 MIN

    I bought a Qatar Airline ticket departing at 11:15 AM. I am planning to buy a ticket from PBI to JFK and earliest I can arrive is at 9:45 AM. Will this give me enough time to make the connection. Thank you for your suggestions.


    On two separate reservations with checked bags, no that is not enough time. I suggest flying in the prior evening.

    Hi, I have an upcoming flight arriving jfk at terminal 4 with a 50 minute layover and connecting to a flight in terminal 1 . Will I have to go through security again and if so is this enough time? Thanks.


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. This connection is extremely difficult, bordering on impossible.
