  • Transfer from Terminal 1 to 5
    Jun 3, 2015

    I am arriving from Paris (Air France) to JFK Terminal 1 at 10:25am and am scheduled to leave from JFK Terminal 5 to The Bahamas (JetBlue) at 12:30pm. Will there be enough time to clear immigration and customs, recheck our baggage and make it to the gate?

     

    That will be very difficult. You will have to be in Terminal 5 with your baggage by 11:30. so that leaves only 1 hr 5 minutes to get off the plane, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, go to the AirTrain and take it to Terminal 5.

    We booked a flight coming in from Toronto YYZ to JFK on Tam Airlines scheduled to arrive at 6:30 pm JFK Termianl 8, and are thinking of booking a separate ticket flight JFK to DUS via Airberlin. departing 9:30 pm Terminal 8. We have checked luggage. Is it sufficient time for this connection with checked luggage?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. TAM Toronto-JFK flights will not use US Immigration Preclearance. Upon arrival in JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take your bags to the AirBerlin check-in desk and go through security.

    Arriving at Terminal 1 on Alitalia at 5 pm needing to catch Delta flight at 6:50 pm Terminal 2 for Denver....is there enough time to get bags go through customs, recheck for domestic flight?

     

    That should be enough time. be aware that your Denver flight could leave from Terminal 2 or 4, so be sure to check the monitors.

     

    Thanks!

    Flying from Venice, Italy to JFK on Delta DL 285 and then to Santo Domingo SDQ on Delta DL 497. Vice versa from SDQ to VCE through JFK on DL 494 and DL 474. Will we have to claim our bags at JFK and recheck them or just go from arrival to departure gate?

     

    Yes, both ways in JFK you will have to 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. Everything will be in Terminal 4.

     

    Thanks!

    I'll be flying American Airlines from Phoenix to JFK, arriving at 8.36 pm to terminal 8. The next flight (from terminal 1) is at 9.55 pm. I'll have lugagge. Is 1 hour and 20 minutes enough time? Thanks

     

    Did you buy your tickets separately or together? Will you have checked baggage?

     

    I bought them separately and I do have checked baggage

     

    It will be very difficult. You will have to hope your flight from phoenix is on-time and your bags come out quickly.

     

  • 1.5 hrs enough to transfer from T5 to T1 at JFK with hand luggage?

    My flight is expected to arrive at T5 JFK at 21:20 from San Diego (Jetblue). I was considering buying another flight to London that departs from JFK T1 at 23:00. However I am not sure this will be enough time even if I have hand luggage only. Any ideas/advice? Many thanks in advance!

     

    It's possible, especially if you are able to check in for your London flight online before you leave San Diego. However if you miss the connection due to your Jetblue flight being late don't expect Norwegian to be very forgiving.

    We have an incoming flight on Jet Blue arriving at 8:00 am with a connecting flight on African Airlines at 11:15. Is that enough time to transfer flights & will we need to go through security again?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time and yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 4. If you purchased your tickets separately, you will have to transfer your baggage between terminals.

    I'll be flying JetBlue from DC to JFK, with one checked baggage. My flight arrives at 9:30 PM in terminal 5. On a separate ticket, I'm flying from JFK to Stockholm on Norwegian Air, which leaves at 12 AM. Is 2.5 hours enough transit time to deplane, pick up baggage, then catch an international flight with check in?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. By the way, the airport code for Stockholm is ARN.

    We are flying into JFK on AA and arrive at 4:05 pm. Our AA flight to Rome leaves at 4:45 pm. Gates are across from each other - is this enough time or should we book an earlier flight into JFK?

    We have a AA flight from SFO to JFK arriving at 4:05 pm. Our AA flight to Rome leaves at 4:45 pm. Are we going to be able to make that flight? We are carrying on our luggage.

     

    It is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 8. However it obviously leaves very little time to spare if the first flight is delayed.

    hi i have a flight arriving at 12:35 pm with swiss air from zurich and have booked a flight seperately with delta to boston at 3:30 pm. is that enough time? do i have to pick up my luggage in between flights?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. And yes, you will have to pick up your bags anyway to go through US Customs. Since you are purchasing a separate ticket you will then have to take them to the Delta check in counter and pay a fee to check them to Boston.

    I have a flight on the 30th of May from Bucharest to Syracuse Hancock International with connection on JFK. I land on JFK at 19:00 on terminal 1 and my next flight(for Syracuse)with Delta Airlines is at 21:50. It is my first flight to the USA and I am coming with a F1 student visa. Can you please tell me if I have to complete my I-94 form on JFK? And if I have to do that in there, do I have time to arrive at the next flight? Should I claim my baggage if I have only one ticket from Bucharest to Syracuse? Thank you very much!

     

    They will have you fill out your I-94 form on the plane. You should have plenty of time. You will have to claim your luggage to go through US Customs but you can re-check it at the transfer desk right after customs. Then you will take the AirTrain from T1 to T4 and go through security.

    I will arrive at terminal 1 at 1735 and need to get to terminal 4 for a flight that leaves for Milan at 1834. Will I have enough tome?

     

    What airport? What airlines? Where are you arriving from? Were your tickets purchased separately or together? Will you have checked bags? I can't really answer your question with the information you have given.

    I travel from Columbus to JFK to Paris to Bangalore. The entire journey of 3 flights is on 1 single reservation. CMH to JFK arrives in terminal 4 and JFK to Paris leaves from terminal 1. Do i need to collect baggage at terminal 4 or will the baggage be checked all the way through to paris/bangalore? what are the activities/procedures involved in getting from terminal 4 to terminal 1

     

    No, you do not need to claim your baggage in JFK. All you have to do in JFK is take the AirTrain from T4 to T1 and go through security.
