The Jetblue flight I am looking at arrives at JFK from Buffalo at 2:26 PM.
The next Emirates flight is at 4:30 PM.
Does this layover give me enough time to connect?
That is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. You just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 4 and go through security.
My fiance and I are returning from Ireland, and trying to make a 70 minute layover. Flight DL206 arrives from Shannon, Ireland at 1:48pm at JFK, and the flight DL442 departs at 2:49pm to Philadelphia. Is this enough time at JFK? Thank you.
Yes, that is enough time. you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon so all you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My wife and 2 children will travel to JFK from Syracuse on JetBlue arriving around 1.30pm Term 5 and fly from Terminal 1 at 7 pm on international flight. What woudl be best and quickest way of transferring between terminals
The only way between terminals is the AirTrain. Are all their flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?
Hi there,

I'm a UK citizen, looking at going from Montreal to JFK on DL3845 then JFK to BOS on DL 43. Layover is 1hr 27. With checked bags. Delta, tickets bought together. Think it's enough time? Thanks in advance.
I meant YUL (Montreal)!
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal so all you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be arriving jfk from Istanbul on Turkish airlines on Monday by 5:30 pm. I will thereafter be connecting a United airline flight by 7:25 at LaGuardia airport. Would I be able to get there in good time I have a checked baggage.
No, that's not possible. You will be arriving right in the middle of rush hour and have less than 2 hours. Completely impossible.
My wife is travelling with a 3 year old from Chicago to JFK and have to take a International flight to India. She has 2-50 lbs luggage. Can we use cart in transit (Airport Tram) between DOmestic & International terminal???
JFK does not have a "domestic terminal" and "international terminal". What airlines is she flying? Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
Hi, I am thinking of booking my flight from Rochester to JFK with Delta and then booking another leg to London with Norwegian - between the flights I should have 3.5h gap. Since I would have only carry on bag could I do an internal terminal transfer (from 2 to 1)?
You will likely arrive in Terminal 4. There are no internal terminal transfers to Terminal 1. You have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.
My son is flying from Phoenix to JFK right now. He has 90 minutes to then catch a flight to Paris. When he takes the tram from one terminal to the next will he have to go through security again?
Hi, I am arriving from Zurich at JFK and need to transit to my Delta flight to Las Vegas. I have 4 hours. are Delta domestic flights in a different terminal? Guess 4 hours is more than enough time?
Delta domestic flights use both Terminals 2 and 4. You have plenty of time.
hi, i am travelling from antigua on a jet blue flight which will reach by 20:50 at jfk terminal 5 and i have connecting flight from jfk terminal 4 at 23:00 to dubai. i have checked in luggage. will i get sufficient time for changing the flight within 2 hrs of time.
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, do i need to go thru immigration at T5 before reaching T4? And from T5 to T4 only air train is the best way to move.
