    Hi, I'm travelling from Manchester UK into JFK terminal 8. I then connect to flight to Columbus, again in T8. Both flights are with American Airlines. When do I clear customs and should my bags go all the way from Manchester to Columbus without me transferring? Thanks.

     

    Yes, in JFK you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hi there arriving on AA from MAN to JFK and then connecting to BDA - will I need to reclaim my bags in order to transfer them to the Bermuda flight ? many thanks.

     

    Yes, in JFK you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. On the return you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda so all you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • JFK Domestic AA to International Norwegian

    I'm set to arrive via AA domestic flight at 10:01pm, and my separately booked ticket with Norwegian Airlines going to Stockholm leaves at 11:30pm. I do not have to pick up bags (all carry-on), and I plan to check-in online for my Norwegian flight. Is this enough time to make the connection? What is the process once I land?

     

    When you arrive you will take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. You have just enough time if the AA flight is on-time.

     

    I'm arriving from Manchester to JFK. I have a two hour layover and then an American Airlines flight to SFO. My luggage is booked all the way through. Will this be ok?

    Flying JetBlue from LAX to JFK arriving 8:00pm, then catch TAP Portugal to Lisbon Portugal leaving 11:30pm, with check bag. I have 3 hours to layover, is it enough time.

     

    Yes, that is enough time.

    flying delta, salt lake city to JFK to Copenhagen, denmark. I have 1 hour layover in JFK is that enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and depart from Terminal 4. If you arrive in Terminal 2, there is a shuttle bus inside security that will take you to Terminal 4.

    I'd be arriving at JFK Terminal 8 on AA flight from Toronto, then within 4 hours I'd be catching QF 12 to LAX and a connecting flight from LAX to MEL. QF 12 departs from Terminal 7. Would I need to claim my baggage upon arrival into T8, re-check in and go through security at T7 even if these are codeshare flights? I read somewhere that there is an airside transfer from T8 to T7 to avoid going through security again and the luggage would be put through to final destination. I wanted to confirm. If there is in fact this airside transfer, how would I locate this when I arrive at T8? Thank you.

     

    You do not have to do anything with your bags in JFK, however I am not aware of any airside transfer between the two terminals.

     

    So does that mean my bags would be put through to the final destination but I would still need to exit T8, take the AirTrain to T7, then go through security T7 again?

     

    That is correct.

    We will have about one hour to go from one gate to the other, and was wondering how to get to the other gates and will the hour be enough time?

     

    PS...There will also be a handicapped person on this trip.

     

    That will be very difficult. You will have to take the airtrain from your arrival terminal to terminal 1 and go through security.

     

  • Transfer from T5 to T1

    I will be traveling from Richmond, VA to JFK by JET Blue then from JFK to Taiwan by EVA Air. I will probably have carry-on baggage only. My question is that do I need to go through TSA again if I transfer from T5 tp T1 at JFK? I am thinking about taking JET Blue's flight arriving at JFK at 10:19am and my EVA Air international flight will departure at 12:45pm. Is it too rush to transfer between these two flights?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T1. With no checked bags that would be enough time.

    HI, I will be traveling from DUB IR to LA using Air France and we`ll have to change flight in JFK transfer time being 1.40h. The flight will be on the same booking and the same airline. Will that be enough considering the security checks and luggage transfer?

     

    Air France does not fly from Dublin to JFK? If you are on a nonstop flight then both flights are actually on Delta. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin and all you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4. You should have enough time.

    Hello Im landing JFK T4 Saturday 16.38 from UK - Will I have enough time to get the JetBlue T5 flight to Buffalo at 18.38?

     

    Yes just jump on the sir train

     

    That's barely the limits of what's possible. It will be much easier if you don't have checked bags. What airline are you flying to JFK?

     

    Hi we are on Delta from MAN - JFK Thanks

     

    And we have checked bags (unfortunately!)

    We're traveling from Venice to Austin through JFK, both US citizens and no checked luggage. We land at 4:50 pm in JFK and our connecting flight to Austin is at 6:25 pm. Is 1hr 35 mins enough time to go through customs and security?

     

    Forgot to mention the airline is Delta and we have to change terminals I believe.

     

  • Will we make it?

    We booked a JET BLUE flight from savannah to JFK arriving 8pm. We have a Delta Flight from JFK to Dublin Ireland leaving at 10:30. Will we have time to get our bags and then get on Delta flight in international terminal? Do we go through security again?

     

    There is no "international terminal." You arrive in terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 4. You will have to go through security again after you recheck your bags with Delta. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Choice of airports: JFK, Philly, or Boston

    Looking into flights to London from Syracuse. I have the choice of flying AA and connecting in Philadelphia with 1 hour 17 mins, flying AA and connecting in Boston with 1 hour 10 mins, or flying Virgin and connecting in JFK with 1 hour 26 min. I don't know if any of those connectiing times are enough for those airports. The flight would be all one ticket.

     

    PHL would be the easiest.

    Hello, I have an AA flight out of terminal 8 Friday at 8am, my partner has a Philippine Airline flight out of terminal 1 Friday at midnight. Would I be able to go through security at terminal 1 and then go back to terminal 8 before my flight?

     

    No, you won't be able to go through security in Terminal 1.

    Hi, about to book a flight from San fran to Ireland. Ebookers suggesting a 52 min stop in JFK to change flights. Would our bags be checked through and would we have to go through customs/security? San Francisco (SFO) to New York (JFK) Delta 409 Economy / Coach Class ( T) Depart 12:45 Arrive 21:30 Duration: 5h 45m Stopover: New York (JFK) 0h 52m New York (JFK) to Dublin (DUB) Delta 44 Economy / Coach Class ( T), AIRBUS INDUSTRIE A330-300 Depart 22:22 Arrive 09:50 +1 day Duration: 6h 28m Total trip time: 13h 5m

     

    Yes, your bags will be checked through and all you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That is enough time if the flight from SFO is on-time. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.
