I am flying from barbados J to JFK via Jet BLue , arriving 648pm. How much time is needed to get to Terminal 4 for Delta flight to RDU? I have no checked luggage and am a us citizen. I have two separate reservations - can they be made into one to expedite things? Can I print a boarding pas ahead of time for the NY to RDU flight?
Delta and Jetblue do not have an interline agreement so they can't be combined. If you have internet in Barbados you can check in for your Delta flight there. I would want at least 2 hours between flights, preferably 2.5 hours.
We are flying to JFK, spending a weekend in NY, then flying to Mexico on vacation. Home trip we are coming back to JFK (terminal 4) to connect to the return trip from JFK (terminal 1). We have 5 hours layover here. 1) Is that enough time? 2) Do we need a separate transfer VISA for this or are we covered with the ESTA we will need anyway for the weekend trip
We are flying in from and back to Europe btw
If you are eligible to enter the US on ESTA you never need a transit visa for the US. Yes, 5 hours should be enough time.
Hi,

On 15th October
Flying from Moscow, aeroflot SU 100
to JFK terminal 1
ETA 12.25

I have to go through customs, pick up luggages then go to terminal 2, register with Delta to Tampa, board
ETD 15.29 h

From ETA to ETD = 3 hours
Is this enough time or not
Yes, that should be enough time if the Aeroflot flight is on-time.
I am connecting from Delta domestic to Singapore International to FRA, I have 3 hours connection both directions will that be enough time? From what I can tell the are both in terminal 4?
Yes, that should be enough time. Some domestic Delta flights use Terminal 2 but they are connected inside security to Terminal 4 by a shuttle if your bags are checked through or you don't have checked bags.
Hello. I am Georgian citizen,flying from Istanbul to Kingston(Jamaica)
via JFK. Istanbul-JFK is operated by Turkish Airlines and JFK-Kingston is operated by JetBlue. I have to change terminals in JFK, do I need any kind of visa? Ticket is in one order.
Yes, you need a US Transit Visa. 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 to Terminal 5 on the AirTrain and go through security.
I am arriving JFK on Delta from PHL in Term 4, and catching a KAL flight to Seoul in Term. 1. I have 2 hrs. for the connection. Do I have enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.
I arrive in Terminal 4 and have to take my next flight from terminal 5. have 3 hours of layover. Do I need to clear customs in terminal 4 and do the security check again at terminal 5? Travelling with a baby and want to prepare in advance. thanks
Where are you flying into JFK from? What airline are you flying?
Flying from bermuda in jetblue and going to Dubai in emirates.
You have your terminals reversed. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda and arrive in Terminal 5, then you will take the AirTrain to Terminal 4 and go through security. You don't have to go through Customs at JFK. You have enough time.
I am arriving to JFK from LAX. My airplane is American Air. My plane will be arriving at 5:34 pm. (17:34) on terminal 8. I will be boarding my connecting flight going to Dublin, also with American Air at 6:50 pm (18:50) also on terminal 8. I only have about one hour and 16 minutes to go to my connecting flight. My question is....do I have enough time and do I have to go through security with TAS again? Thanks. Rudcas38
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in T8.
My flight lands at JFK with Caribbean at 5:35am. I have a connecting flight with american which leaves at 7:30am. would i be able to connect in time? I have no bags except hand luggage. What are the steps to connect at JFK?
With no checked baggage that is barely enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration and Customs, take the AirTrain to Terminal 8, get your AA boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.
I'm flying on Delta from IAD (washington dc) and I have a layover of 50 min in JFK. Do I have enough time to catch my connecting flight to Mexico City?
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from IAD is on-time. All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are operated by Delta.
