how to go from t2 to t1 in jfk in least time? how much time it takes?
The only way is the AirTrain. It takes about 10-15 minutes (including walking/waiting for the train).
Hi, flying from Dub via JFK to MCO with Delta on one ticket, Sept 22, have 1hr 40min connection time, will clear customs in DUB, can I check bags through or will I have to collect? Travelling with wife and 3 kids, one of which is an infant, flying into T4 and out from T2 will I have enough time? DL45 is flight and seems to be frequently late!
I have a AirFrance/Delta flight from BLR to AUS via CDG and JFK. I am travelling for the first time internationally without a companion. Flight arrives into T1 at JFK and I need to take a domestic Delta flight from T2. Do I need to undergo immigration & Customs at T1 and then move on to T2? What about the baggage re-check in? Is it taken care at T1 or at T2? I have a 4.5 hour layover at JFK. Hope it is enough time considering I am travelling on a weekend.
If 4.5 hours will be too tight for customs/immigration and change of terminals, can I go for an alternate booking that has 7 hours layover at JFK?
Yes, in T1 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to T2, go through security, and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
I will arrive from China to JFK at terminal 5 and after 2 hours and 20 min I have my flight from JFK terminal 1 to boston. Is there enough time to be able to reach the terminal? I am also traveling on a VISA for USA. Thank you very much
You have your terminals reversed. You will arrive in 1 and depart from 5. If both flights are on the same reservation you should have just enough time.
Am I correct that I will clear customs when I leave from Dublin? Flying Are Lingus on 9/17 landing at 1:20. My possible Jet Blue connections leaves at 2:39, I believe they are both T5. Is it doable if I have already cleared customs? Thanks
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. If your bags are checked through or you have no checked bags, yes, you could make a 2:39 connection.
I am travelling with British Airways to JFK arriving at T7 at 19:30. Need to transfer to T8 for an American Airlines flight to Rio at 21.40. Is there enough time? I'm told I have to collect my luggage and hand it in to someone (its check in already) but do I hand it over in T7 or T8? And where?
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then take the AIrTrain to T8, and go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
hey , i'am travelling from CMN to MCO and i have a 2H05 stop in JFK , i have to go from terminal 1 to terminal 2 to catch a flight with Delta . will 2H05 be enough to pass through us immigration and customs and to change the terminal ? where is the airtrain located in the airport ? thanks for your help and sorry for my english :D
No, that's not reasonably enough time. It's not impossible, but it'll be really really difficult.
Hy, my flight arrive from cmn to jfk at 07:20 am with Royal Air Maroc and I need to catch a second flight from JFK to ATL at 11:05 am with Delta. I wanted to know if 2h45 is enough knowing that I will have a carry-on plus a checked luggage and I`m an international coming from a city outside US.
By my count you have 3 hr 45, not 2 hr 45, did you mistype? 3 hr 45 should definitely be enough time. 2 hr 45 is a bit more difficult.
Yes, I meant 3h45 sorry I mistyped. I`m a bit worried cause it`s my first flight, and I`ve heard that the security is more rigorous for internationals so I thought may be this would take more time.
Security is the exact same for everybody. Going through Immigration will take a bit longer because you are entering on a visa.
Thanks for your help ZAP, I hope everything will go smoothly.
I will arrive 18:41 at T5 with Jetblue from SXM, my next flight is at T1 23:55 with Turkish A. It's one reservation, I'm european citizen with visa. Should I go through Immigration, claim checked bags go through US customs and then recheck and go through security. To I take my checked bags with me to T1 to recheck there or to recheck right after the US custom at T5? Is it enough 4 hours for everything?
Yes, you will 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 T1 and go through security. You have enough time.
