  • Connection time to Terminal 1

    I'm flying out from Terminal 1 with Norwegian to Stockholm at 9:55pm. I will be coming in from Miami, and I can book either the American arriving at 6:30pm at Terminal 8, or with Delta arriving at 6:00pm. Which of them is better for connecting with the Norwegian flight? This is on the 10th of August. Or should I be coming in even earlier (the previous flight arrives at 3:30 so it feels a bit early....)

     

    Either should be fine. Both are a similar distance on the AirTrain from Terminal 1. I would personally book the Delta flight.

    I have an hour and 15 minute connection at JFK. I am arriving from SFO and making a connecting flight to Dakar, both flights on Delta. Will this be enough time to make my connection? Do Delta flights arrive in the same terminal? Thanks!

     

    Domestic Delta flights can arrive in Terminal 2 or 4. You will depart from Terminal 4. If you arrive in Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal 4. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I am flying from Phoenix on Us Airways/American. Have only 55 min layover to get to next flight to Milan on American. Are gates going to be in same terminal?

     

    Yes, both gates will be in Terminal 8. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gatte.

    I have 2 hours to connect my flight to Incheon Korea from JFK terminal 5 to terminal 4 , and has to check in my baggage, would I have enough time to be on my international flight ? Thank you

     

    That's barely enough time if your Jetblue flight is on-time and your bags come out quickly. I personally would want at least 3 hours for that connection.

    Hi, I'm flying into JFK from SFO and then have a connection to fly to Rome all on Delta (same ticket). Will my bags be checked all the way to Rome? Will I have to pick them up at JFK and recheck them again?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK. Just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am flying Delta from LAX to Shannon (Ireland) with a connecting flight at JFK. I have about an hour to catch my flight to Shannon at JFK. I've heard domestic Delta flights fly into terminal 2, will I have enough time to get to The international Terminal 4 and catch the flight to Shannon?

     

    All Delta flights to/from LAX use Terminal 4. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal 4.

     

    Such a relief, thank you:)

    I am flying to Amsterdam from Raleigh, my connection time is 95 minutes, both are delta flights. Will I have enough time and will I have to collect bags?

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4. You do not have to go through US Customs when leaving the US. You won't have to do anything with your bags either. You should have plenty of time.

    Hi, I would need to get from Terminal 7 (arr Air Canada Jazz) to Terminal 4 (dep South African Airways) in 1 hour 40 mins. I would have checked luggage. Would this be possible?

     

    Since you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto you should barely have enough time. if you purchased your tickets together your bags will be transferred for you.

     

    Did you make it? We have Expedia booked ticket with 80 minutes layover from Toronto to T7 on air canada, and on same ticket, SAA from T4 to JHB. Is 78minutes enough?

    is 51 minutes between connection arriving on domestic JetBlue flight and departing on JetBlue...

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 5.

     

  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 - 2-hr layover

    My 15yo brother will fly from SVO to JFK with Aeroflot, scheduled arrival at 4:20pm in Terminal 1, and then JFK to SAN with Delta departing at 7:40pm. This leaves him 2 hrs to pass immigration (not US citizen), customs and get to the gate at Terminal 2. Is it doable?

     

    It's possible. Note that Delta operates domestic flights from both Terminal 2 and 4, so his flight could leave from either, but as long as his Aeroflot flight is on-time he should have enough time for his connection.

    This September, we will be arriving on a Delta international flight at JFK Terminal 4 at 4:30 pm. I would like to book the Jet Blue flight leaving from Terminal 5 at 6:30 pm. We will not have checked bags. Is 2 hours enough time to make it?

     

    Yes, without checked bags I think you could make that. Check in online for your JetBlue flight before you leave on your Delta flight to save some time.

    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.

     

    Thank you.

    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!

     

  • Rechecking the bags at JFK

    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!
