    i arrive to terminal 2 with delta e i ve connetion with delta to italy after 50 min..any chance to make connection?do i have to take my bag e re-check in?

     

    At JFK, 50 minutes transfer via the Airtrain, serving all terminals every 8 mins on average, is sufficient. If Delta is also your connecting airline to Italy, your bags will be transferred - if you use a different airline, check with Delta if it will transfer bags to that airline gate - not all airlines transfer. Delta uses Terminals 2, 3 & 4 (T4 being the international terminal). Your ticket will indicate transfer gate - so does the overhead screen on your arrival at JFK. Open www.ifly.com/jfk & click "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS - you get all the information you need there - scroll down to the text.

    I need to know the walking distance from terminal 1 to 2.

     

  • TERMINAL 2 TO 3

    I ARRIVE AT TERMINAL 2 AND CONNECT TO AFRICA IN TERMINAL 3. HOW FAR IS IT FROM TERMINAL 2 TO 3 WHEN WALKING? DO YOU HAVE TO CLEAR SECURITY AGAIN OR WILL BAGS BE CHECKED THROUGH?

     

    1. Terminal 2 of JFK Airport is for Delta with Gates 19-29, and a walkway to Terminal 3 next to Gate 19A. At Terminal 3 - also used by Delta, with gates 1-18, and you arrive there near gate 18. No need to clear security; or check bags again (as you use only one airline - correct?).

     

  • T8 to T3 in under an hour

    Currently have an American Airlines flight booked to land at 8 am in T8 and a delta departure T3 at 8:50am - chances of making the connection tomorrow moring?

     

    On arrival at JFK, look for the "Airtrain" sign - that train is free within the airport, & makes its round among the terminals every 8 mins on average. Note, however, that it serves the post-security area of each terminal - you need to go through security check at T3 before moving on to your gate. On arrival make sure you check with the overhead screens as to your flight number, gate and departure time. You can make it, unless your incoming flight is seriously late.

     

  • Terminal 3 baggage - any food?

    I have 4 hours to wait in terminal 3 at baggage for my ride. Are there any shops at baggage?

     

    Terminal 3 has only restaurants in the unsecured area (Internatiobal Arrivals area: Dunkin' Doughnuts & Gourmet on the Fly; and some Food Courts; However, if you can leave your bags at the baggage office near the baggage carousels, you could walk over to Terminal 4, which has quite a number of entertainment and stores on the East & West Mezzanine level.

    We are flying into terminal 8 one hour before the rest of family arrives at terminal 7. Would we be able to get our luggage and go to terminal 7 to meet them without having tickets? What is the best way to get to the other terminal?

     

    Terminals 8 and 7 are not close to each other. You can take the Airtrain (follow signs) which runs on average every 8 mins and serves all terminals, stopping in their pre-security area. Best place to meet: next to the Information Counter in the Arrivals area of T7.

    I am flying out of JFK to ANC on 7/13/12 using Alaska Airlines - what terminal should I be at?

     

    Without a flight number I am unable to give you that information. Also, the JFK airline listing by terminals does not include Alaska Airline. JFK has Terminals 1 through 8, arranged in a circle. Your ticket should indicate the Terminal, i.e., T1, T8, etc.

    Is the airtrain close to the baggage claim at terminal 3?

     

    The Aitrain at JFK stops at T3 outside of domestic arrivals.

  • where to receive international passenger

    Hi, I have never been to JFK. I need to receive some international passengers in terminal 4. Where are international passengers usually received and welcomed at JFK? Thanks for your help.

     

    At JFK passengers arriving at T4 (unless they have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports) need to go through customs clearance. Your best bet is to meet them in the arrivals area near the information counter. (note that after their arrival they will spend at least 35-45 mins going through customs procedure. 2. If you drive to JFK, use the free 70-space Cell Phone Lot located near the Airport entrance--just off the Van Wyck Expressway. All the terminals can be accessed from this lot in less than 5 minutes. The lot allows drivers to wait until their arriving passengers have arrived, collected their baggage and call you to be picked up at the curb. Alternatively, park in the short-term lot or the nearest garage to the terminal. 3. If you arrive by Airtrain it will stop at each terminal.

     

  • enough flight connection time?

    Arrive at term. 3 on Delta at 3:20. Depart term. 8 at 5:40. Have to check in and get Bd. passes at Finnair. and do security. Finnair requires I hr. Checkin before depart. Enough time?

     

    On arrival at JFK you need to pick up your bag(s), then go up and take the elevated Airtrain to Terminal 8, and check in your bag at the Finnair counter; go through security check and on to your connecting gate (all presuming that Delta does not transfer bags to Finnair). You have enough time.

    which gate will a flight going to Miami via JFK be leaving from on Wednesday 27/06/2012

     

    If using British Airways: On arrival at JFK, you would arrive at Terminal 7 (T7) & depart from the same terminal. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival will give you the connecting flight & gate number. If connecting via either Delta (in Terminals 2, 3 or 4) or American (T8), you would need to take the Airtrain to your connecting terminal and go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • how can i get from terminal B to 1?

    I am coming via American airlines terminal B, how can i get from there to terminal 1? thank you

     

    At JFK you arrive in Terminal A, Concourse B (gates 1-16). You need to take the elevated AirTrain to Terminal 1 (gates 1-11). Just follow signs.

     

  • How to get from Terminal C to Terminal 5

    I do not see a terminal C - we are coming in from Boston on Jet Blue and leaving to Costa Rica on Jet blue from terminal 5

     

    Jet Blue uses both the International Terminal 4 with Concourses A & B and corresponding gates (A gates A2-7; B gates B20-30); and Domestic Terminal 5 with 25 gates. If you arrive & depart from different terminals, you need to take the AirTrain which comes around every 8 minutes; at T4 it's inside arivals level at center; at T5 it's near gates 25 or 1 on opposite sides. As the train operates at pre-security areas of the terminals, you would have to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate.

    Thank in advance for the advice!

     

    You have 2 choices, both of which involve going through security check at Terminal 1: You can walk over to T1, or you can take the elevated AirTrain, which runs on average every 7 mins on a continuous loop among the 8 terminals. At T2 it stops outside arrivals, at T1 on the Arrivals level, outside, center. AirTrain run clockwise between the terminals.
