Hello. I am leaving Moscow on Finnair (connection in Helsinki) and arriving in JFK terminal 8 at 3:55 pm. Do i have enough time to clear customs and immigration (I am an american citizen) and get to Jetblue at T5 before 6:54 PM?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight landing at Terminal 4 - JFK New York at 16.30 on 26 March 2017 via an Etihad flight and then have a JetBlue flight to Las Vegas that has been brought forward to 18:23pm departing from Terminal 5. Will 2 hours be sufficient time to get from Terminal 4 to 5, taking immigration and baggage check-in into account.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Abu Dhabi. If both flights are on the same reservation, all you have to do in JFK is take the AirTrain from T4 to T5, get your JetBlue boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. If it's two separate reservations you will have to claim and re-check your bags. You should ahve just enough time.
Hi, I will be arriving from Singapore on Qatar Airways and then connecting Delta Airlines to Fort Lauderdale. I have abt 5-6hrs transit time. I understand i have to clear immigration and customs for baggage clearance but what how do i get from terminal 8 (Qatar airways) to Delta Airlines (terminal 4)?? Is there a 'tram' to go from 1 terminal to d other or do i need to take a shuttle bus?? Thank you :
You take the AirTrain from T8 to T2 or T4. It is well marked.
Thank you ! ALso i saw there is an Airspace LoungeLocation: Terminal 5. Will i be able to use its facilities?? Since my departure terminal is t2/t4..???
Thank u..
No, you will not.
Flying from Barcelona to Detroit. 1 1/2 layover in NY Kennedy. Reservation is Delta all the way through. Will I need to get bags in NY and clear customs or will that happen in Detroit? Thank you
In JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You just have enough time if everything goes perfectly.
My friend's flight was delayed 3 hours and now only has 1 hour to get through border control, customs, and collect baggage and check in on a Jet Blue flight that is a separate ticket. How can this be done the quickest way? My friend is a US citizen but does not have global entry/fast pass.
He or she will get stuck in New York unless the JetBlue flight is also delayed. This is the risk you take when you purchase two separate reservations. Maybe they will let him or her standby or change to a later flight (if there is one).
Hi, I'm arriving in Terminal 1 with AF at 1:40pm on Nov 7th and have a connecting to ORD with Delta at 4:15pm. Is that enough time to clear customs and recheck my bag?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks a million!
2 adults, 2 kids under 10 arriving T7 from LHR on BA at 12.10pm on a Saturday afternoon, departing T8 to MCO with AA (codeshare) same ticket at 14.59.

Do we need to clear immigration, baggage reclaim etc & check in all over again, and is the connection time of 2hrs 50 mins enough? Many thanks
In JFK you will arrive in T7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to T8 and go through security. You should have enough time.
my family are coming from MCO orlando to JFK via delta, then proceed to Asiana airlines for Incheon. Do they need to go out and check in again? Arrival at JFK is at 10:05 Am, Asiana departs 1:25 Pm. will the time be enough for the transfer? thanks
Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Even if it's two separate reservations that should be enough time.
We arrive at 8:30Am from TPA on Delta. Our next flight leaves on Emirates to Dubai at 9:40 Am. We have carry on bags- can we make it?
With carry-ons only that is possible if you are able to check in online for your Emirates flight. If you arrive in Terminal 2 you can take a shuttle to Terminal 4 inside security. Personally, I wouldn't try this though.
I'm arriving on an international flight at terminal 4 at 6h05am and have a flight at 8h05am on terminal 2. Can I make it in time? I need to get my bags and check in again.
That is just barely enough time if everything goes perfectly and both tickets are on the same reservation.
