I am flying into JFK on Delta in terminal 4and Flying to Paris using Air France out of terminal 1 will I need to clear security again and, if so will 2 hours be enough time to clear it?
Yes, you will have to go through security again in T1. Yes, you should have enough time if the flight from Columbus is on-time.
Hi. We will be flying in December from Toronto-JFK-Amsterdam-Norway (one ticket). We were wondering if we have to claim our luggage in JFK or do we just have to from arrival gate to departure gate? Thanks in advance
You do not have to claim your bags in JFK. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
We are traveling Delta from Zurich with a one hour 39 minute layover to go through customs, security, and get to the gate for our Delta connecting flight to Nashville. We plan to have carry-on luggage only. Is this possible?
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare for delays.
hi if anybody can help i am flying from manchester england with thomas cook and then on to miami with american airlines i have a 3 hour gap between flights will this be ok as i presume i will have to go throgh customs etc and pick up bags and then check in for my flight to miami any advice would be helpful ps never been to jfk before thanks
Yes, you will have to do that. You will have to take your bags on the AirTrain from your arrival Terminal to Terminal 8 to re-check them with American. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
So I am flying from Kenya via Paris (american airlines). We land at 1pm. I am booking a separate reservation to get to Toronto (Delta). They have a flight at 4pm. Does this seem reasonable?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
thanks!
I will arrive at JFK from San Diego with Delta around 330 pm on Saturday May 27, 2017 and then I have a connection to Amsterdam, The Netherlands with Aer Lingus at 850 pm. Is this possible? I have two separate tickets
That should be plenty of time. You will have to claim your bags from Delta and take them to T5 to re-check with Aer Lingus.
I have a flight arriving at Terminal 5 with Jetblue in domestic flight and need to get to Terminal 1 with Evagreen for an international flight. The connection time is 2 hour 20 mins.

Is that enough including re-checkin and security?

Thanks for your help!
Btw, I don't think I need to collect my bags since they should be shipped to final destination when I check-in at my first flight with jetblue.
Hello, I will arrive at 8:45PM at terminal 4 (Delta), need to clear customs and immigration (I have a global entry), and then transfer to terminal 1 (Alitalia) for a flight that leaves at 10:20PM (not checking any luggage)... is 1.5 hours enough time?
It should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying in from Toronto to JFK at 12:28pm and have a connecting flight to savannah SAV at 1:30. Both are in terminal 4. What is the connection process and would I have enough time?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Toronto is on-time.
I will be arriving on South African Airways in Terminal 4 and will then be flying to Canada on American from Terminal 8. How much time is required, is there a shuttle? Thank you
You need at least 3 hours between flights. The AirTrain connects the terminals outside security.
