  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 1

    I am arriving to JFK from Atlanta on a delta flight (terminal 4) at 5:30 pm and then have a flight to Paris at terminal 1 that departs at 7:20pm. The trip is on one ticket. Is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Atlanta is delayed as you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1.

    JetBlue to South African Airways....made w/ 1 reservation and bags will be automatically transferred. I have a 1 hr 39 min between flights..is that enough time to get to train and thru security?

     

    I mean coming from ORD into Terminal 5 and having 1 hr 30 min to get to Terminal 4. Thank! :)

     

    It's not impossible, but with the recent lines it certainly won't be easy.

    I am arriving at JFK from Boston with a 51 minute connecting time for a flight to Nice, France. I don't know if I will have to change terminals. Is this enough time? I booked the flight on the Delta website.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If you have to change terminals from 2 to 4, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between them.

     

    Thank you!

    hi I am arriving from India to jfk on a qatar flight which arrives at 15.00 hrs in terminal 4 . I then have another flight to Miami on delta which is i from terminal 4 itself. at 18 30hrs. is that good enough time to clear immigration pick my bag and clear customs and then check in for the next flight

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I will be arriving by Cathay in Terminal 7 from HKG at 8.10pm, my next flight is JetBlue Terminal 5 at 10.55pm. Both flights are on the same reservation. What is the process (do I need to pick up my luggage and where do I re-check it) and will I have enough time? Thanks a lot.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal 5, go through security and to your departure gate. you should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks a lot!! I appreciate it :)

    I'll be arriving into JFK Terminal 4 on Singapore Airlines at 11.10am, and connecting to a AA flight in Terminal 8 at 3.40pm to Columbus. What is the process and will I have enough time?

     

    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 8, re-check them at the AA ticket counter and go through security. You should have enough time.

     

  • Transfer from American Airline to JAL

    In July, I will fly from RDU to JFK by American Airline and then will take JAL to Tokyo. Flight from RDU will arrive at JFK at 7:30am and the flight on JAL will leave JFK at 9:40am. The trip is on one ticket. Is that enough time? These 2 airlines are on 2 different terminals, correct? Hearing about all the wait at the security has made me very nervous. Will things get any better by July? Thanks

     

    Nobody knows if things will be better in July. Yes, you will have to change terminals and go through security.

     

    But is 2 hrs and 10mins enough time to make such connection under the current situation? Please advise.

     

    It would be very close.

    Arrive at JFK 6:08pm from Chicago with Delta. 1hr 22min layover. JFK to Greece with Delta. All on same reservation. Will I need to a)re-check my bags b) go thru TSA and immigration? C) will i have enough time? Departing late June

     

    There is no US immigration when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Many thanks! And my luggage will not need to be rechecked correct? The 1hr and 22 min layover will be ok to get from arrival gate to departure? Do you know what terminal by chance?

     

    Both flights will be in Terminal 4. You don't have to do anything with your luggage.

     

  • Time to get suitcase, do customs and change terminal

    I will be landing in Terminal 4 at 3:43 p.m. and have next flight in Terminal 2 at 6:10 p.m. Will I have time to get my baggage from baggage claim, do customs and walk to Terminal 2 then to the gate?

     

    That should be just enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation.

     

  • BRU-JFK JFK to BOS Terminal 4

    My flight from BRU-JFK changed and I now only 1 hr 39 min to make my connection JFK-BOS Is this enough time to go thru immigration/customs/ recheck bags and pass security to make that Boston flight? I initially had 2hrs 39min but my flight from BRU changed

     

    With the current security staffing issues, I think it will be pretty close to impossible for you to make this connection.

     

  • DAL -- NYC / NYC to Madrid

    I arrive from DAL to JFK in Terminal 4 on Delta at 3 p.m. and have a flight to Madrid in Terminal 8 on American that departs at 7 p.m. Flights were booked separately, so I realize I have to claim luggage from first flight, then go back through security, etc. and get to other terminal. Is there a way to recheck bag at Delta baggage claim and then get shuttle to other terminal? Will I have enough time, provided flight is not delayed?

     

    No, you have to take your bag with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 8 to check it with American. You should have enough time.

     

  • Transit Visa OR Tourist Visa

    i'm traveling from Dubai to Cancun & my connecting flight is in JFK. -- my flight from Dubai to JFK will be arriving at Terminal 4 & my flight from JFK to Cancun is on Terminal 5. My concern is that I'm a Philippine Passport holder.. is a US Transit Visa enough to let me go through my next flight since I'm leaving the secured area of Terminal 4 to go to Terminal 5? Or do I actually need a Tourist Visa to do that w/ no problems? Please help..?

     

    All you need is a transit visa.

    Hello.. I will be arriving from O'Hare in Chicago at 9p.m at terminal 5, and need to take a connecting flight at terminal 4 to Abu Dhabi at 10:30 Pm. Question 1. Can i check my bags through final destination in India? Question 2. Can I make to to my connecting flight in the time alloted? The carrier is Etihad Airlines Thanks,

     

    Were your tickets bought on one reservation or two separate reservations? With the current security issues and the fact that you will have to go through security again in Terminal 4, this is a difficult connection, even if your bags are checked through.

    Hey, I'm going to Israel in July out of Orlando, with a connection on American. I get back to New York at about 5:15 in the morning on the 14th of June, in the Delta terminal, and have a flight on American Airlines to Charlotte at 8:30. Am I gonna be alright?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
