  • T4 to terminal t2 delta conections from uk to canada
    Oct 23, 2013

    Hi I'm traveling with delta from the uk to Canada Quebec. I have to change in jfk. I land at t4 at 16.10 and my flight to Quebec leaves from t4 at 1800. I will have checked bags. Is this enough time and what the quickest way to get from t4 to t2 ? Thanks for the help

     

    Sorry ment to say arrives t4 departs t2

     

    On arrival at JFK you will need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag where indicated. The Delta shuttle bus will take you to Terminal 2. You have enough time.

     

    Alternatively, since you will already be outside security after re-checking your bag, you take the AirTrain to T2 and go back through security there.

    Hello there I'll be flighing from mco to jfk and arrive at 2:14 pm then I have to collect lagages and head to termenal 1 to cach a flight on the saudia airlines how would I transfer please? Do I have to take an airtrain with my bags? Help please and thanks alot.

     

    I forgot to mention I will be arriving with delta from termenal 4 then to termenal 1 thanks

     

    Your MCO-JFK flight may actually arrive in Terminal 2. If your tickets were bought on separate reservations, yes, you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 4 or 2 (probably 2), then take them on the Airtrain to Terminal 1 to check them with Saudia. The Airtrain is the only way to get between these terminals.

     

    Thank you so much for you reply..appreciated

     

  • Terminal 5 to 7, 2 hours ok, Recheck bags to International?
    Oct 21, 2013

    I want to buy a ticket on Jet Blue to arrive at terminal 5 at 7:03 AM, then depart international on Cathay Pacific at 9 AM. (2 hours) I will need to claim my bags and transfer them myself because Jet Blue does not have an agreement with Catha Pacific. And go through security. Is this enough time at this hour of the day?

     

    That will be very difficult but it is doable if there are no delays. You take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train between terminals.

    Hi! My friends' flight is scheduled arriving from Moscow to JFK T4 at 2:18 pm and at 4:00pm they have to take the connecting flight to Miami with the same air company ( Delta ) in T2. Layover time 1 hour 40 minutes and flights were bought on one ticket. Do they have enough time? What is the best(the fastest) way for them to switch terminals?And is there someone at the airport who can assist them( they don't speak English). Thank you!

     

    On arrival at Terminal 4 of JFK, your friends need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in bags where indicated. Continuoulsly running Delta Shuttle bus service runs between T2 & T4 ( from/to gate C60 at T2 & gate B23 at T4) andd eliminates the need for security check - add about 12 minutes of transfer time. T4 has Concourses B (gates B20-38) and Concourse A (gates A2-7). they have enough time for transfer.

     

    They can also take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train since they will already be outside security after clearing customs in T4. In that case they will go back through security in T2.

     

  • I ARRIVE AT JFK BY TURKISH QAIRLINES THEN ONTO ORLANDO BY DELTA
    Oct 17, 2013

    COULD YOU PLEASE BE SO KIND TO ADVISE US WHEN WE ARRIVE WITH TURKISH AIRLINES 13.25 LOCAL TIME AT JFK AND HAVE TO TAKE A CONNECTING FLIGHT ONWARDS TO ORLANDO FLORIDA DO WE HAVE ENOUGH TIME SINCE THE DELTA FLIGHT IS SCHEDUALED FOR 16.OO ? OR IS IT SUGESTED TO WAIT THERE AND TAKE THE LATER ONE WHICH DEPARTS AT 19.30 ? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANY INFO PET

     

    You have plenty of time between 13:25 & 16.00 (1:25pm - 4:00pm U.S. time). You will arrive at Terminal 1 (T1) & depart from Terminal 2. On arrival, you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance, then re-check-in your bag where indicated. If you purchased both Turkish & Delta flights on one ticket, your bags will automatically be transferred. If not, you would have to take your bags after customs clearance and check them in with Delta at Terminal 2. Connecting from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2: The 'Airlines Terminals Train' (follow signs) - runs every 10-15 minutes, counter-clockwise, in the unsecured areas of the terminals - your next stop after T1 would be T8, T7, T2,, T4 & T2. On arrival at T2, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • From Terminal 8 to Terminal 4 - How long will it take us with luggage?
    Oct 14, 2013

    We will be arriving from Canada at 1145h terminal 8. Our flight to Grenada departs at 1355h terminal 4. The tickets will be purchased separately. Is this ( 2hrs 10 mins ) enough time?

     

    1. If your Canadian airport does not have U.S. Customs clearance, you will need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and then take your bags to your connecting Terminal 4 (as you have separate tickets) - JFK has Terminals 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8 - connected by the Airline Terminals train running counter-clockwise every few minutes in the unsecured areas of the terminal; where you will need to go check in your bag at your connecting airline counter, through through security check and on to your gate.

  • From Terminal 2 to Terminal 7 - How long will it take us with luggage?
    Oct 17, 2013

    Hello , i would like to ask how long it will take us from terminal 2 (and wait to collect our luggage) to go to terminal 7... Because we will have 3:30 min to be in our next flight.... We will arrive from LasVegas to JFK with Delta at 14:56 and then try to catch our next Flight with Iberia airlines at Terminal 7...the flights are not connected.. IS it possible? we are just 2 persons..Thnx

     

    Yes you have enough transfer time. (If Your tickets were separately purchased you would need to claim your bags on arrival at T2 and re-check them in at Iberia's T7.) In any case, on arrival at T2 take the 'Airline Terminals' train running continuously between terminals, but counter-clockwise (your next stops would be T1, T8, & T7 - you can take bags onto the train). At T7 (gates 1-12) you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

    THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!!!! ;)

     

  • ARRIVE JETBLUE TERM-5 CONNECTING TO EMIRATES TERM-4
    Oct 11, 2013

    I am flying MCO to JFK on Jetblue on 10-25 arriving terminal 5 at 9:30AM and leave on Emirates in terminal 4 to Dubai at 11:20AM. Do I have to get my bags and go through security again due to changing terminals? I have never been to JFK. Thanks for any information you can give.

     

    1. If you booked both legs of your journey on one ticket, your bags should be transferred automatically. To get from T5 to T4 you will need to take the Airline Terminals Train to next stop (T4) by following its sign. However, the train runs in the unsecured areas of the terminals & you need to go through separate security check at T4 for either A or B gates before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • Connecting time from CDG to MCO (T4 to T2)
    Oct 2, 2013

    Hello, I'm fying from CDG to MCO on next January, arriving at JFK at 13:25 (terminal4), and having a connecting flight at 15:50 (terminal2). So, Have I enough time to take my connection ? I hope the climatic conditions in January won't be difficult. May be it's better to change my connecting flight to ensure myself to arrive without any problem... Thank you, Florent

     

    You will need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through security check and re-check-in your bag. As to JFK: Delta has a gate-to-gate bus transfer between Terminals 4 & 2.

     

    Thank you for your answer. I didn't know that there is a delta bus between t2 and t4. I thought having to take airtrain. So, do you think that 2h45 are enough for my connexion or is it better to modify my flights ? Thanks you !

     

    This is 2h25 of connexion in fact

     

    Since you will already be outside security after you go through customs, it is likely that it will be faster for you to take the Airtrain. You should have enough time with the connection you have. Any weather delay is more likely to delay the JFK-MCO flight than your CDG-JFK flight.

     

    thank you for you answers. I was anxious about my connecting time, as you say it will be enough, that is perfect. I hope the passport check will be fast, may be is there a specifc line for connexion... A last question : beyond customs and after recheck my luggage, is it possible to drop my luggage at terminal 2 or may i have to transport them until terminal 4 ? Thank you !

     

    There is no line for connections - most passengers on the flight will be connecting. Remember that you are arriving in 4 and departing from 2. There is a re-check desk right after you exit customs. You will not have to take your bags to T2 with you yourself.

    Arriving from CDG at 1:17pm and departing to SJU 2:55pm both on Delta flights. Do we have enough time to make this?

     

    That will be difficult but it's probably doable. You'll have to hope your first flight is on-time. Delta has an evening flight to SJU most days if you miss your connection.

    I'm flying into jfk with delta in December at 16.10 terminal 4 and have a conecting flight with delta to Quebec at 18.00 terminal 2. Will I have time I'm a uk citerzen.

     

    That will be difficult. YOu will clear US immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check your bags with Delta. Then you'll have to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and go back through security and to your gate.

    Hey, I´m flying to JFK from HEL arriving at 15:50. Connecting flight to LAX from the same terminal T8 departures at 16:55. Do i have enough time to change?

     

    No, that is not enough time. You will have to go through immigration, collect your bags, go through customs and re-check them, then go back through security. That will be very difficult to do at peak time in only 65 minutes.

    Hello! I'm EU Citizen and i'll be returning to JFK Terminal 5 from Nassau (with Jetblue). I have a time gap of 2hrs15min to get on the Austrian Airlines flight to vienna on Terminal 1. is that enough time? do i need to go thru immigration & security again? thank you

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Nassau. Jetblue and Austrian do not have an interline agreement, so you will have to claim your baggage and take it on the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to Terminal 1. You will really have to hurry and hope your flight from Nassau is on-time. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 1 after you check your bags.

     

    Thank you very much!

     

  • connecting time of 2 h - enough

    we are flying to JFK from CUN, have to collect bags and re-check in for flight to Europe. is two hours enough? thank you!

     

    What airlines are you flying? Even on the same airline that will be very difficult.

     

    from CUN to JFK with aeromexico, from JFK to OSL with Norwegian

     

    I highly doubt you will have enough time for that connection - you should not have bought it. You will have to go through US immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then take your bags upstairs and check in with Norwegian. Unless your Aeromexico flight is very early you will have a hard time doing that in enough time.

     

    thank you for your response - can you estimate how much time do we need?

    I Am flying on Virgin Atlantic into JFK Terminal 4, I land at 12:15 and need to go through immigration collect baggage, Transfer to Terminal 2 for a delta flight, and check in. My connecting flight leaves at 14:55, is this going to be enough time?

     

    You have enough time for transfer: Take your bags after customs clearance onto the 'Airline Terminals' train (follow signs), running every few minutes, but counter-clockwise: After boarding it at T4, it will stop at T3, and get you to T2, where you go to the departure level and check in your bags with Delta, go through security check and on to your gate.
