  • SAA conection to Virgin America
    Mar 19, 2013

    We arrrive 06:40 with South African Airways from Johannesburg in April and connect 09:40 with Virgin America to Las Vegas. What is the procedure with baggage collection and rechecking and will there be enough time for the connection. Where is the re-check in baggage counter?

     

    It looks like we arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 4 not sure?

     

    Yes, so all you will have to do is take your bags upstairs after clearing immigration and check in/check your bags with Virgin America, then go back through security. I don't believe that South African and Virgin America have an interline baggage agreement so I think you'll have to re-check the bags yourself on the ticketing level. Everything is in the same terminal. Regardless, you should have plenty of time to do that.

     

  • terminal 8 - connetcting flight

    International flight with two infants. We have 40minutes between the flights and arriving to and from termial 8. on the map of the terminal it appears as though there're two concourses....but are they two separate buildings. We obviously dont know what gates swe are arriving to/departing from, but assuming they are in different concourses is 40min going to be enough? Thanks in advance

     

    40 minutes is tight but OK on a domestic to international connection. I would want more time though. It's not sufficient on an international->domestic connection at JFK.

    HI I am flying from Spain on Iberia (Terminal 7) landing at 2:35pm and am trying to book an American Airlines flight leaving from terminal 8 at 5:10pm. Will this be enough time to collect baggage, go through customs, transfer, re-check and get to my flight on time?

     

    Yes, it should be. Over 2 hours is enough for almost anything.

     

  • TRANSIT VISA REQUIREMENT

    i am travelling from toronto to new delhi via jfk. My air canada flight lands at terminal 7 of jfk and i have to take my new delhi air india flight from terminal 4. i am permanent resident of canada and having permanent resident card with me. My passport is of indai. Does i need a transit visa for transferring from terminal 7 to terminal 4 of jfk.

     

    At Toronto Airport, go through U.S. customs clearance. On arrival at JFK you simply look for signs for the Airline Terminals Train and board it to get to your connecting Terminal 4. (On your return to JFK you will need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag, before proceeding to your connecting terminal. Do make sure that your first airline will transfer bags to your second airline (if using different airlines).

     

  • International transfer within Terminal 3

    Hi, I'm landing on an international Delta flight in Terminal 3 JFK at 6:40am and leaving on a domestic Delta flight from Terminal 3 at 8:10am. Delta insists 1.5 hours is enough (especially in the same terminal) but I'm worried; have to get off from the back of our international plane with a baby, clear passport control, pick up our bags and clear customs, drop off the bags and go to our next flight. Is 1.5 hours really enough for all that if we don't need to transfer terminals? Thanks!

     

    Forgot to mention, we are US citizens so that should help...?

     

    That will probably be enough time. There aren't that many international arrivals that early in the morning so Immigration won't be that busy.

     

    We arrive from Athens in terminal 3 at jfk at 4:30 pm. Our domestic flight from terminal three to Columbus Ohio leaves at 6:20 pm. Is that really pushing it to make the connection including customs, etc?

    A friend of mine in Namibia wishes to fly to Canada via a flight that connects through JFK (terminal 4 to terminal 8). Namibians normally need a visa to visit the US. Will he need a visa if he is only at JFK to connect through to his Toronto flight?

     

    Yes, he needs a C1 visa

    On arrival at JFK at T4, take the 'Airline Terminals Train' (follow signs) to T3, which is the next stop. You need to go through security check at T4 before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • International flight, Miami to Amsterdam

    I am flying with American Airlines from Miami to New York (JFK), landing at 16:55. I am then flying with Delta Airlines to Amsterdam at 20:10. Do i have enough time to make my flight? And do i have to claim my luggage and check it in again?

     

    You need to find out from American if they transfer your bags to Delta flight - if not, you need to claim them on arrival at Terminal 8 and take them to the Delta counter at their terminal. Delta uses both Terminals 2 & 4 (T2 has gates 19-29; T4 has gates A2-7 & B20-31. Overhead screens on arrival will show you airline flight & gate numbers. On arrival, take the 'Airline Terminals Train' running from T1, to T8, T7, T5, T4 & T2/3, and arriving in the unsecured area. Before proceeding to your departing gate you need to go through security check. If you need to check in your bag, hurry!

     

  • Tampa to Athens on Delta via JFK

    I traveling with small kids on Delta Flight 890 from Tampa to JFK. I have a short layover before leaving to Athens on Delta Flight 832. How far apart will my gates be?

     

    At JFK, Delta uses Terminals 3 & 4. T3 has gates 1-18. T4 has Concourse A (gates A2-A7), and Concourse B (gates B20-31 - T4 is most likely your departure airport. If arriving at T3, you need to take the 'Airline Terminals Train' which connects all terminals, starting at T1, to T8, T7, T5, T4 & T2/3 (5 stops to T4). At T4 you need to go through security check at the Concourse level before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • Singapore to Raleigh

    My husband is planning to fly back from Singapore into JFK and then fly out on American Airlines to RDU 2 hours later. He will not be checking a bag. Is that sufficient time to make his flight? It is not a connection, it is a separate flight.

     

    If your husband arrives at JFK via Singapore Airline (SQ), he would arrive at Terminal 4, where he needs to go through passport control (and possibly through customs clearance). If he does not yet have a boarding pass for AA he needs to go to the Departures level of Terminal 8 and get one at the AA counter, before proceeding to his connecting gate. To get from T4 to T8 he needs to take the Airline Terminals Train which runs between all terminals in the unsecured area - meaning, he needs to go through security check at T8.

    Hi, I come to birth from milan is flying delta jfk terminal 3 gate5. and I will have a delta connection for tampa FL to Terminal 4 gate b25. how should I do with the bags? I get only 1 hour and 40 minutes of time I can do? thank you very much.

     

    Make sure checks your bags are checked through to TPA in Milan (they should be). After you clear US Immigration in Terminal 3 you will re-check your bags with Delta and then proceed up to the departure level where you can take the Airtrain to Terminal 4 where you will go through security and go to your gate. 1 hr 40 mins should be enough time if your flight from Milan is on time.

     

  • Connection between terminal 4 and 3

    My sister is arriving from Sao Paulo on Terminal 4, then needs to go to Terminal 3 to get her connection flight to Atlanta, what is the best way to do it? Please help

     

    On arrival at JFK your sister needs to go through passport check, pick up her bags, go through customs clearance & then re-check-in her bags where indicated. She then should head for the Airline Termials Train (following signs) to get to T3, where she will have to go through security check before proceeding to her connecting gate.

     

  • Moscow-Las Vegas

    My friend comes from Moscow on Tuesday at 12.10 pm (I think it's terminal 1) and after that flies away to Vegas from Terminal 3 at 16.10. I want to meet her in between the flights but don't want her to be late. What would be the best place to meet and how much time can we have considering the earliest I can be there is 2.40 pm? Does she have to check her bags and go through security again in Terminal 3? If yes, how much time should we allow for that? I feel kind of lost, can I go through security with no ticket and meet her inside or the best place would be in front of Terminal 3? Thank you so much for your help! Lana

     

    On arrival at JFK your friend will go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in her bag where indicated. Thereafter she will need to take the 'Airline Terminals Train' (signs will guide her) to the connecting Terminal 3, where she will arrive in the unsecured (before security check) area. It is best to meet her in front of the Information counter on the arrivals level. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Arrival at T7 and connecting at T8
    Feb 9, 2013

    I arrive on BA into T7 and then my connecting flight leaves with AA from T8. After passport control and customs, can I check my bags at a transfer desk at T7, or do I have to take them to T8 to check back in again with AA?

     

    BA & AA are members of OneWorld Alliance - your bags will be transferred automatically to your connecting flight. 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. Thereafter, take the 'Airline Terminals Train' (follow signs), which serves all terminals, making a continuous round between T1 to T8, T7, T5, T4 & T2/3) to your connecting T8, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. T8 has Concourse B with gate 1-16, while near its gate 14 is access to Concourse C with gates 31-17.
