  • time need for customs, immagration and baggage security

    need to get passenger from international flight on Copa Airlines landing at 1:50 to connecting flight (separate ticket to Philadelphia) depart time is 3:30 terminal 4 - Delta Airlines - will this be enough time for him to make his connecting flight?

     

    If they have checked bags that is not reasonably enough time.

    I am flying to JFK from Grenada by Jet Blue, arriving in Terminal 5 at 7.00 PM. My next flight with different ticket is in Lufthansa flying from Terminal 1 at 10.20 PM to Doha. I need to do immigiration, bags collection and security check and do the same in Terminal 1 for Lufthansa flight. Do i have enough time to do this within 3 hrs 20 min. Please advise.

     

    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags on the AirTrain to T1, re-check your bags with Lufthansa, and go through security. You should have enough time as long as your JetBlue flight is on-time.

    We will be arriving from FCO at 4:36 and connecting to MSP at 6:40 on Saturday, Nov 19. Do we have enough time to go through customs and catch our connecting flight. We are flying Delta. thank you

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, I have flights upcoming DUB-SJU and SJU-DUB with Aer Lingus and American Airlines. The layover from DUB-SJU is 5h20m and SJU-DUB is 4h33m. Our baggage will be checked through. I know we will need to take the Airtrain from T5 to T8 and vice versa. I think we have enough time but was just looking for confirmation?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in JFK both ways is take the AirTrain to your departure terminal and go through security.

    I'm looking at a flight from Brussels to Santiago (Dominican Republic) the 23rd of October, but the connecting time is only 2 hours and 15 minutes. Is that enough time or will it be difficult?

     

    It's possible if both flights are on the same reservation. it doesn't leave a lot of time to spare, but it's possible.

    Have about 2.5 hours to make a connection on Delta between an incoming flight from Atlanta and an outgoing flight to Edinburgh. I don't know the arrival or departure terminals. This should be enough time right? Do terminal changes require a TSA re-do?

     

    That is plenty of time. If you arrive in Terminal 2 you can get to Terminal 4 where you depart using a shuttle bus inside security.

    We fly in November with delta from Orlando to JFK then have a connecting fligh with Delta to Manchester (England) , Delta have changed our Orlando flight so we now only have an hour and 6 mins between flights, is that enough ?Thanks for any advice

     

    That's enough time if the first flight is on-time. If you arrive in Terminal 2, there is a shuttle inside security to Terminal 4 where you depart.

    I arrive in JetBlue from Santo Domingo at 3:37 pm, leaving to Germany on Lufthansa 6:00 pm , can I make it ? where are this terminals located far ? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 1. You will take the airtrain between terminals. if both flights are on the same reservation this is difficult but possible but if it's two separate reservations it will be very difficult.

    I land from London Heathrow at 12:10 and am looking to fly to Washington DC at 15:12 with Delta. Land in Terminal 8 and fly from terminal 2. Is this enough time please? I am English and live in Switzerland

     

    As an edit I land at Terminal 8 in JFK with BA. I fly Terminal 2 with Delta. Many Thanks

     

    British Airways does not use Terminal 8 - they use Terminal 7. That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Check in for your Delta flight online before leaving Europe.

     

    Dear ZAP, many thanks for your advice :)

    Hi! I'll be flying YUL (montreal) to JFK, land at 7pm and catch a flight to heathrow london at 8h05pm. Will I have enough time to make that connection?

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    American Airlines for both

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 8.

     

    Thank you very much :-)

    My wife with 8 months old son traveling to India from Phoenix to JFK and JFK to India. She has lay over at JFK for 7 and half hours. I am thinking of going to fly with them from PHX to JFK. Will I be able to stay with them till they board their flight to India? When we go to the terminal 4 from terminal 3 do we have to go through the security? I will not have ticket to go to India from JFK. I like to go till JFK to help her to take care of baby but I want to find out whether or not do need to go through the security. If so I won't get to help her till.

     

    JFK does not have a Terminal 3. What airlines are you flying?

     

    Coming from Phoenix from JetBlue flight 136 to JFK.

     

    JetBlue lands on Terminal 5 and her international flight departs from terminal 4. Would be able to go with her all the way to the gate for her international flight. I can book my ticket from JetBlue to fly with her from PHX to JFK.

     

    You will not be able to re-enter security in Terminal 4 without a ticket departing JFK that day from Terminal 4.

    Arriving to JFK at 07:40 hr from Chile (with LATAM), and flying out 09:30 to Tokyo with JAL. Both airlines are in T8. Is this enough time to make this connection ? Sound a bit tight though.

     

    It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. Also, JAL uses Terminal 1 not Terminal 8.

    Hello, We will be arriving to JFK terminal 4 on EgyptAir, we will then transfer to terminal 5 to catch our Jet Blue flight to Orlando. We have enough time to do that as its 6 hr connection, but the question is the AirTrain inside the terminals or outside? And do we have to re check our bags and pass through security again even though its the same reservation as both carriers have an alliance?

     

    The AirTrain is Outside security. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs, then re-check then, then go through security in Terminal 5.

    Hi there, i have a flight from Singapore to JFK (JFK T4) with southern China and am planning to book a domestic flight with Delta from JFK to Boston (T4) with no checked bags. 1) is it possible to transfer within the Terminal without exiting the customs? 2) if 1 does not work, how much time is needed to check out and check in again, but i find this very amusing :) confused, Shinji

     

    In JFK you have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security prior to your connecting flight. You need at least 2.5 hours, preferably closer to 3.

     

    Hi Zap, thanks for the reply! but if i am arriving to T4 and my connecting flight is at T4, i still must exit the customs even if i dont have any checked baggages?

     

    Yes, you do.

     

  • Intl-Intl Connection at JFK

    I have an 8 hour connection in JFK between my flights from Bogota and Seoul. They will both be arriving and departing within Terminal 4 as I booked through Asiana and Avianca. Considering this is a long connection, will it be possible to go out and see the city for a couple of hours? How many hours before my next flight should I be back? Will I be even allowed to exit JFK? Thanks!

     

    I really don't think that's enough time. You'll be down to 6 hours by the time you clear US Customs, and you have to be back at JFK 2 hours before your flight to Seoul, and it takes an hour to get anywhere and another hour back, so that leaves you with like an hour to see anything.
