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.
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.
We are flying from TLV to JFK hen JFK to PUJ all on DELTA under same ticket. Do we have to pass immigration? Or is it Gate to Gate ? Both flight are T4....
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security. If you are an Israeli or DR citizen you need a US Transit Visa.
I am arriving in JFK from germany at 12:15pm on a tuesday with Singapore airline and have to catch my second flight on Delta ( not on the same reservations) at 2 pm to Reagan national. Is the one hour and forty minutes enough time to check in and catch the Delta flight?
No, that's not reasonably possible, especially with checked baggage.
I am flying from Iceland to JFK and then to Austin, Texas.
I arrive at terminal 7 in JFK at 7pm. My flight from JFK to Austin departs from terminal 5 at 9:25pm. If I check my bag will I have to exit the terminal to get my bag and go through security to enter terminal 5?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs and will be outside security when you clear US Customs. You should have enough time for your transfer if the flight from Iceland is on-time.
