    I will be flying in from Santiago Dominican Republic on jet blue flight 1536 and transferring to jet blue flight 71 with one hour and fifty minutes to go through customs and recheck bags. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes, it should be enough time.

    Correct, if your flight is operated by Iberia it will leave from T7.

    Is the Air trans the best way to get from T5 to T2? Is it located in the airport or outside? Will I need to go through security? I am changing air carriers.

     

    It is the only way to get between terminals. It is located inside the "airport" but outside security. You have to go through security when changing between those two terminals.

    There's ample signage. They're located outside security over the curbside.

    Easiest way to get from T5 to T2 and how long will it take. Arrive at 6:55 a.m. leave 9:45.

     

    Take the AirTrain. It shouldn't take more than 45 minutes.

  • TRAVEL TIME FROM TERMINAL 4 ARRIVALS TO TERMINAL 7 DEPARTURE

    My family is arriving in Terminal 4 at 15.30 they have the next flight to connect to US airways at 18hrs in Terminal 7. is the time enough to clear US immigration and customs and reach terminal 7 on time? is there a check in counter for US airways after they clear customs in terminal 4 if not what's the options? what is the easiest way to travel to terminal 7? will greatly appreciate for your advise... cheers

     

    US Airways does not have anything in T4. Were both of your tickets bought on the same reservation? What airline are you flying in to T4? To get from T4 to T7 you have to take the Air Terminals Train/AirTrain. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you arriving by Egypt Air and then to connect to US Airways in Terminal 7. Tickets are purchased seperately.

     

  • Connection T4 to T2 Sept.23

    We'll arrive at T4 on Delta from Barcelona at 1430 with a scheduled departure at 1625 on a Delta Connection flight from T2. 1) Is this doable? 2)What would be the preferred route to T2, Back through security in T4 and the shuttle to T2, walk to T2 and go through security there or the tram to T2 and then through security? Thanks been a while since I flew through JFK.

     

    Yes, it should be doable. Either route works, but I'm thinking taking the Airtrain to T2 and then going through security there would be faster. Don't think you can walk to T2.

    my son will arrive termınal 4 on 15 of july and need to go to t2. what is the best way to go to T2.ı dont want hım to carry bags what can he do about it.

     

    If he is coming in international he can re-check the bags with Delta when he clears customs. Then he can take the Airtrain/Air Terminals Train to T2 and go back through security. If he is domestic, he should take the Delta shuttle bus, which runs on the secure side.

    Thank you. What about on her return from toronto to madrid. Ticket is also with AA but the operating carriers are american eagle arriving at terminal 8 at jfk and then iberia from jfk to mad from terminal 7. Will she clearing customs in toronto? Does she have to claim the luggage again upon arrival at jfk, clear customs again, and then transfer to term. 7 and go thorugh security? Or would the luggage be checked in all the way from toronto to madrid? She will have about 110 mins. For the transfer.... Thank yOU

     

    Yes, she will preclear US immigration in Toronto, so in JFK she will just have to take the Airtrain from T8 to T7 then go through security.

    hello, my sister will be travelling from Madrid to Toronto in September via AA - on one ticket and one transfer at JFK. Both flights are with AA. The travel agent told her she does not have to worry about the luggage upon arrivel to JFK. That her luggage is checked in all the way to Toronto airport. Upon reading some of the postings, I am not sure on this. Could you please let me know if her luggage will be indeed checked from Madrid to Toronto or if she will have to claim it upon arrival at JFK and then re-check with AA? she will have about 2 hrs. in between flights. Is this enough?

     

    The travel agent is incorrect. Any time you enter the US you have to claim your baggage in immigration, clear customs, and then re-check it. She should have enough time.

     

    Thank you. What about on her return from toronto to madrid. Ticket is also with AA but the operating carriers are american eagle arriving at terminal 8 at jfk and then iberia from jfk to mad from terminal 7. Will she clearing customs in toronto?

    She will clear US customs in Toronto. All she will have to do in JFK is take the Airtrain from T8 to T7, her baggage will be transfered automatically.

    I would like to meet my son during his 4 hour transit time at JFK on route to Europe from California. I am not a passenger. Is this possible?

     

    Yes, he will have to exit security after clearing customs. You can meet him there.

    My son will arrive on AirBerlin 7248 at 3:40 pm on 12 July and needs to continue to Chicago on AA at 5:05 pm, so there is only 85 min time. Will that be enough since both flights are in terminal 8? Does he need to collect his luggage to pass through customs even it is checked through? Thanks!

     

    It will probably be enough time but he'll have to hurry. Yes, he will have to collect is baggage to pass through customs, then re-check it with American after exiting.

     

    Thank you for your quick response. Who could assist him to make it on time, would there be airport personnel to meet him and walk him through to the next flight?

     

    No, if your son is old enough to not be an unaccompanied minor and is not disabled he shouldn't have any trouble.

    I'm flying Heathrow-JFK-San Francisco next week. I arrive in JFK at 4:00pm and fly out at 5:30pm, both flights are with Delta in Terminal 4. Will I have enough time to make my connection, and do I need to collect my luggage and re-check it on?

     

    You should be able to make transfer easily within that time. However, do make sure on arrival (check overhead screens) that your connecting flight is indeed at T4 and not in T2, as most of Delta's domestic flights depart from T2 (requiring a shuttle and adding another 15 mins to your transfer time) T4 has on its Concourse level, Concourse A, gates A2-A7, and Concourse B, gates B20-B38

     

    Thanks, I checked earlier and SFO flights leave from T4.
