  • Terminal 1 duty free shops -- what are their hours?
    Jul 31, 2013
    The title says it all -- thanks in advance for any info!


  • Enough time?
    Aug 15, 2013
    Hello, I have a LanChile flight from Santiago Chile to New York (JFK) terminal 8 at 07:40 and an American Airlines connexion to Montréal in the same terminal at 09:20, gate 32. Should have enought time?


    Yes, that should be enough time, but you'll have to hurry.


    Thank... It's a good option alternative a transfert from JFK to LGA and flight connexion at 11h00 AM ?


    The only easy way to get between JFK and LGA is a Taxi, which costs about $35 and takes about 45 minutes.


  • Terminal Switching from IAD to JFK to Amsterdam
    Jul 31, 2013
    HI, I'm flying to Sweden in a month. I am flying from DC to JFK to Amsterdam. I have 90 minutes at JFK. I know I'm leaving from Terminal 4 to Amsterdam but I do not know which terminal my Delta flight is coming into JFK at (either 2 or 4). If it's terminal 2, will I have enough time to get to terminal 4? I have never been to the JFK airport but I am told I will have to leave the secure area and come back in. Any advice is appreciated.


    Yes you have enough time - on arrival at T2 you will be directed to the Delta Shuttle taking you to T4 (gate-to-gate).


    Delta has a good map of how this works -


    Thanks for the link and the advice on the Delta Shuttle. Will I have to get my checked bags and re-check them in? Can't they just move my bags from the first plane to the second?


    Yes, your bags should be checked through to your final destination, in which case you won't have to do anything with them in JFK.


  • Enough Time
    Aug 1, 2013
    Hi, I am traveling back from Denmark this Friday. I land in JFK at 2pm and leave fr Austin at 4pm. I am flying Delta. Do I have enough time to get my bag, go through customs, recheck my bag, go through security and get to the gate? I am assuming I land in one terminal and need to get to a different terminal. I am a US citizen. Thanks.


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 4 and it appears the Austin flight departs from Terminal 2. The best way to get between them is after re-checking your bag, to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and then go back through security.


    Thanks for the help. Is this the right sequence that I will go through? I land, go through immigration, get bag, go through customs, recheck bag, take train to T2, go through security, get on next flight?


  • Where Pinnacle Arrive; best connection T4
    Jul 25, 2013
    I fly from MSP on Delta Connection Pinnacle CRJ900 next week, connect to Delta to Amsterdam out of T4, 2 hours between. Pinnacle arrive T2? if so, best way to get T2 - T4, with carry on? enough time?


    Yes, the Pinnacle flight will arrive in T2. Delta runs a shuttle bus on the secure side between T4 and T2. You should have enough time.


  • Is an hour and fifty minutes enough time through customs?
    Jul 21, 2013
    I will be flying in from Santiago Dominican Republic on jet blue flight 1536 and transferring to jet blue flight 71 with one hour and fifty minutes to go through customs and recheck bags. Is that enough time?


    Yes, it should be enough time.


  • American airlines operated by iberia

    Correct, if your flight is operated by Iberia it will leave from T7.

    Is the Air trans the best way to get from T5 to T2? Is it located in the airport or outside? Will I need to go through security? I am changing air carriers.


    It is the only way to get between terminals. It is located inside the "airport" but outside security. You have to go through security when changing between those two terminals.


  • Nervous
    Jul 17, 2013
    Is it easy to catch the air trans to go from t5 to t2? will arrive at 6:55 a.m. and lv 9:45. Where are the air trans located? Are there personnel to direct you?


    There's ample signage. They're located outside security over the curbside.


  • Travel time from T5 to connection at T2
    Jul 17, 2013
    Easiest way to get from T5 to T2 and how long will it take. Arrive at 6:55 a.m. leave 9:45.


    Take the AirTrain. It shouldn't take more than 45 minutes.


  • t8 air berlin customs to t5 JetBlue with 2.5 hrs
    Jul 15, 2013
    Is 2.5 hrs enough time for US citizens to ckear customd/etc. and make it to JetBlue in t5?


    Don't everybody answer at once!


    It should be enough time. No need to get impatient.


    Sorry - I'm taking my 12 yr old daughter by myself in 2 getting nervous... Actually my WIFE is getting nervous... which is going to drive me to drink... or international travel... Thank you!

    My family is arriving in Terminal 4 at 15.30 they have the next flight to connect to US airways at 18hrs in Terminal 7. is the time enough to clear US immigration and customs and reach terminal 7 on time? is there a check in counter for US airways after they clear customs in terminal 4 if not what's the options? what is the easiest way to travel to terminal 7? will greatly appreciate for your advise... cheers


    US Airways does not have anything in T4. Were both of your tickets bought on the same reservation? What airline are you flying in to T4? To get from T4 to T7 you have to take the Air Terminals Train/AirTrain. You should have enough time.


    Thank you arriving by Egypt Air and then to connect to US Airways in Terminal 7. Tickets are purchased seperately.


  • Connection T4 to T2 Sept.23
    Jul 14, 2013
    We'll arrive at T4 on Delta from Barcelona at 1430 with a scheduled departure at 1625 on a Delta Connection flight from T2. 1) Is this doable? 2)What would be the preferred route to T2, Back through security in T4 and the shuttle to T2, walk to T2 and go through security there or the tram to T2 and then through security? Thanks been a while since I flew through JFK.


    Yes, it should be doable. Either route works, but I'm thinking taking the Airtrain to T2 and then going through security there would be faster. Don't think you can walk to T2.


  • FROM T4 TO T2
    Jul 13, 2013
    my son will arrive termınal 4 on 15 of july and need to go to t2. what is the best way to go to T2.ı dont want hım to carry bags what can he do about it.


    If he is coming in international he can re-check the bags with Delta when he clears customs. Then he can take the Airtrain/Air Terminals Train to T2 and go back through security. If he is domestic, he should take the Delta shuttle bus, which runs on the secure side.


    Jul 12, 2013
    Thank you. What about on her return from toronto to madrid. Ticket is also with AA but the operating carriers are american eagle arriving at terminal 8 at jfk and then iberia from jfk to mad from terminal 7. Will she clearing customs in toronto? Does she have to claim the luggage again upon arrival at jfk, clear customs again, and then transfer to term. 7 and go thorugh security? Or would the luggage be checked in all the way from toronto to madrid? She will have about 110 mins. For the transfer.... Thank yOU


    Yes, she will preclear US immigration in Toronto, so in JFK she will just have to take the Airtrain from T8 to T7 then go through security.
