    Hi, my mom who doesnt speak english will be arriving from Syracuse by Jetblue and has 1 hour 50 minutes before her Transaero flight takes off to Moscow. Would this be enough time for her? Does she need to pick up her baggage and then chek it in again? She doesn't speak any english, what kind of help is available ?Thanks

     

    If you booked her tickets together her bags will be transferred and all she has to do is follow signs to the AirTrain and then take the AirTrain one stop from T5 to T4. She should have enough time if her first flight is on-time.

    Hi, I´ll arrive to JFK T8 from Lima and the take another flight from T7 to Honk Kong, I have 3 hours between flights. Should I pass through Customs considering I´ll not stay at the US? Should it be 3:20 hours enough to take the second flight (different tickets)? Thanks for your guidance in advance.

     

    Yes, upon arrival you will HAVE TO go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. If your bags are tagged through to HKG you can then re-check them at the transfer desk. Then you will take the AirTrain from T8 to T7, get your Cathay boarding pass and recheck your bags if you haven't done that already, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks, really appreciate it.

    Arriving at JFK from Cle with a 3 hour layover and departure to Oslo. Separate tickets. Will there be enough time to collect baggage and transfer terminals? Is there an "outbound customs" that we will need to go through?! Thanks!

     

    No, there is no outbound customs. 3 hours should be enough time.

     

    Thank you!

     

  • Timing Issues and Questions regarding Security

    Hi, Im a Canadian citizen flying from Toronto to JFK by TAM airlines. My flight gets in at 6:30 pm. I have a flight departing from JFK to Stockholm at 9:55 pm that same night with Norweigan Air. My question is will I have to clear security again if I am carrying only carry-on luggage, and if so, how long should I expect to be delayed? I think I have left myself enough tme provided the first flight is not delayed. Any feedback would be greatly appciated and may put my mind at ease.

     

    I am not sure if the TAM flights from Toronto to JFK will be using preclearance (I suspect they will not) so when you arrive in JFK you will probably have to go through US Immigration and Customs, then take the AirTrain from T8 to T1 then go through security. I think you still have enough time since you're only bringing a carry on.

    Hi, I am travelling from MCO to JFK via JetBlue and land at 18.33. I then have an hour before i fly to LHR with Virgin from Terminal 4. I will have no checked luggage but i'm concerned i may need to leave a secure area to get between terminals. Am i going to need to run? i booked the tickets seperately and thought an hour would be enough as when i did the same thing at North Carolina, we walked out of the gate opposite to our connecting flight. After confirmation with this one i see that its different terminals. i am now panicking.

     

    Yes, you do need to exit the secure area to change terminals. You may also not be able to check in for your Virgin flight online because it is international. If so, you will have missed the check-in cutoff by the time you arrive in New York. I would definitely try to get on an earlier flight to JFK, either by paying the JetBlue change fee now or doing a same day change on the day of your flight to an earlier flight.

     

    Thank you for you reply. I can check in on-line before we fly out of MCO. It opens 24 hours before i fly and can print off boarding passes or have them on my phone to show. so i only need to get from T5 to T4. I gues it will be tight but its going to cost £800 to change a $1000 flight. i will try on the day but its only as availibility allows. I hope i can make the transfer in about 30 minutes if i cant change the tickets.

     

  • International-Domestic Connection Time

    I am arriving at JFK on an international flight to terminal 4 at 9:05 PM. I have to make it to an 11 PM domestic flight out of terminal 5. Is 2 hours enough time to go through customs, collect baggage, and make it to the flight?

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? What airline are you flying into Terminal 4? If you purchased tickets together you should be OK. If separately it might be hard for you to get to T5 in time to check your bag, so you might want to consider just bringing a carry-on if that's possible. Then you can just check-in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving on your first flight.

    We arrive on a SAA flight from Johannesburg at 06h40 at JFK. We are planning to fly out on JetBlue at 09h31 to Orlando. Is 2:50 hours enough to clear customs, collect baggage, change terminals and recheck?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    ARRIVING FROM BARBADOS 7.33 PM TERMINAL 5 DEPARTING TO LONDON LHR 9.50 PM TERMINAL 7 WILL WE HAVE ENOUGH TIME AFTER COLLECTING LUGGAGE AND CLEARING CUSTOMS,

     

    It depends on your flight arriving on-time and immigration going quickly, because if you bought two separate tickets you will need to transfer your bags by yourself and have your bags to T7 an hour before your flight.

    I have 45 minutes to go from a domestic JetBlue flight to an international JetBlue flight. Is that enough time ?

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All JetBlue gates are connected inside security in Terminal 5.

    Will be arriving at JFK T4 7 hrs earlier than my friends at JFK T8. Will I be allowed to go to T1 resto/s to pass the time, and will head to T8 to meet my friends (arrivals area) later on? Any suggestions where to pass the time best? Do boingo wifi services work on all terminals if I try to avail of their 24-hr package? Thank you in advance.

     

    You won't be allowed in the secure area of any terminals. Yes, Boingo service should work in any terminal if you purchase it.

    I heard that there is some "vouchers " that allow you to skip the immigration line (or go with a shorter line) for passengers who are connecting flight. Is there true? If so, where/how to get those "vouchers"

     

    No such thing in the U.S.

    I am flying from Barcelona to Toronto, layoff at JFK via American Airline (1 tickets). Do I have to claim baggage and via custom at JFK? Is 2 hours enough for transfer?

     

    Yes, in JFK you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Toronto.

     

    So will 2 hr enough?

     

    Yes, it should be

    I am flying form Toronto into JFK terminal 4 and departing one hour later form terminal two, both flights are Delta. Does my luggage transfer through or do i have to pick it up? Also, how do we get from one terminal to the other?

     

    Delta will transfer your baggage. Delta also runs a shuttle bus inside security between T4 and T2. Also, few Delta flights use T2 anymore as T4 was recently expanded.
