    I arrive Jet Blue - ticket states main as a terminal at 7:01 am. Then leave on Jet Blue - terminal 5 at 8:00am. How do I get from Main Terminal to Terminal 5 and is one hour enough time?


    Main is the departure terminal for your first flight. You will arrive and depart from Terminal 5. Where are you flying into JFK from?

    Hi I am landing at JFK terminal 2 with Delta at 9:18p and flying out at 11:45p from Terminal 4 with Emirates to Dubai. Is this enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to transfer your bags yourself to Emirates.


    Thanks, I've changed my domestic flight to arriving at 8pm. Is sufficient?


    That should work much better.

    Hi. My flight arrives at terminal 4 at 8:30 and leaves terminal 1 at 11. Is it enough time. How do I transfer between the two?


    You take the AirTrain and you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    I switched to lga with a 4 hr layover. Is that doable thanks for your response


    That's doable, but because of the airport change, not really that much easier, especially because LGA is under construction and a mess right now.


  • jetblue bag drop at terminal 4
    Mar 10, 2017
    Hi - I am arriving at Terminal 4 from Delhi via AirIndia. I need to transfer to JetBlue to go to Boston. Is there a JetBlue bag drop after clearing customs at Terminal 4. I hope I don't need to carry bags to JetBlue terminal 5. JetBlue flight is on the same ticket.


    If it is on the same reservation then your bags will be tagged to BOS and you can re-check your bags after clearing customs in T4.


    Thanks so much for your help !

    Next week I am flying from Pittsburgh on Delta to Kennedy and have 45 minutes to change planes to another Delta flight to London. Its operated by Virgin Atlantic. Other then flight delay is it the same terminal?


    Yes, both flights should be in Terminal 4. This is a very tight connection but is possible if the flight from Pittsburgh is on-time.

    Hello, We are arriving at gate c66 at terminal 2 via DL0446 at 5:48 PM and next flight to Paris is at 7:05 PM through terminal 1 via DL 1015. Do we need to go through security again ?


    Yes, you will have to go through security in Terminal 1. This is a bit of a difficult connection.

    I have 40 minute connection time between my arrival flight from DFW to departing international flight to Barcelona. They are both American Airlines and I think Terminal 8, but in different concourses. Advice on quickest way to change gates. Can I pre-arrange a cart to meet us at arrival gate & transfer us to departure gate?


    T8 doesn't really have multiple concourses. It's not that large. As long as you are not disabled you don't need a cart. You have enough time if the flight from DFW is on-time.


  • Enough connection time ?

    Hello, My sister is going to travel from Grand Cayman and reaches JFK Terminal 5 at 7.12pm. She has a separate ticket with Etihad Airways from Terminal 4 at 10.00pm. Will that be enough connection time considering she has to reclaim bags and re checkin? Thanks in advance


    That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    Hello, I have a flight connection arriving from Chicago and going to Madrid, Spain. First flight is an American Airlines flight and second one is Iberia. Can I stay in boarding zone without going through security controls again? Thank you


    You have to go on the AirTrain from Terminal 8 to Terminal 7 and go through security.


  • Transfer from T7 to T8

    Hello, I arrive from Spain with Iberia Airlines at 15:15h in T7 , and I go to Washington with American Airlines at 17:22h in T8. With no checked bags. I have to use the Airtrain ? Is there enough time ?


    Yes, you have to use the AirTrain. You will already be outside security when you clear US Customs. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Arrive terminal 2 at 5:21 PM and depart terminal 4 8PM
    Mar 5, 2017
    Hello. I have two flights scheduled with delta on separate tickets. One from CVG to JFK that arrives at 5:21 PM at terminal 2. The second flight leaves for LHR out of terminal 4 at 8PM. Is there enough time? And will Delta check bags through on separate tickets? Thanks.


    If you show your London confirmation to the agent in CVG they should check your bags through to London. The Flight from CVG will probably arrive in Terminal 4. You should have plenty of time.

    Dears, Will land at JFK from Miami at 15:10 with Delta and checked bags . And have internationnal flight to Brussel at 18:00 (Brussel Airlines) - separate tickets. Would that be enough time to re-check + security? Cheers, BR


    that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    I forgot, non US citizen (French), txs


    Your citizenship doesn't matter for this process. There is no US immigration or customs when leaving the US.

    HELLO, Is generally a 3-hour connection time considered enough for international-international connection in terminal 4? Separate bookings, non-US passport. Many thanks


    That's about the minimum I recommend for such a connection.


    I have 2 and a half hours to catch a flight to South Africa from Orlando at Kennedy New York, would that be enough time?
