  • 1:25 connection to flight
    Jan 4, 2015
    im travelling from miami to barcelona. Having to do a 1:25 layover at jfk. Both flights are in terminal 8. Will I have time to change planes?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I'll arrive at T4 from Milan and i've a connection to Tampa after 1h and 20 min. Is enough time?


    That is not really enough time.


  • Is 1:40 h enough to transfer from Terminal 8 to 1 (intl. connection)

    we are transferring on Sunday from Terminal 8 to Terminal one, connecting from AA to Turkish Airlines. Will time for immigration, picking up and rechecking bags and taking the train to T8 be enough for our family to catch our connection flight with Turkish?


    It's really pushing it. To make it to T1 on time your flight will have to be on-time and your bags come out pretty quick. Is your AA flight domestic or international? If it's international you have no chance of making it.


  • International -> Domestic Connection time
    Jan 3, 2015
    Hello, I'm arriving to JFK on a Korea Air flight this Thursday, scheduled to land at 10AM. I then need to make a connection to Boston Logan, and am wondering how much time it is safe to have between the arrival of the international flight and the departure of the domestic flight to Boston. I have to go through immigration as alien, and then pick up my bags. I'm planning to reserve the domestic flight with American Airlines, which has departures in terminal 8. Would 2:40 hours be enough, or should I get more time in between?


    2 hr 40 minutes is sort of pushing what's possible. There are lots of flights from JFK to Boston. Choose one a little later.


  • Transfer to Royal Air Maron

    We are arriving JFK from CLT on USAir. Will transfer to Royal Air Maroc with only 2.5 hour layover. Will that be enough time? Thanks.


    It's enough time, but your first flight has to be on-time and you have to hurry on the AirTrain from T8 to T1.


    Thanks for the quick response, ZAK. Can we save time by walking from T8 to T1?


  • Transfer

    Hello. I am planning on buying tickets separately. First flight from MEX to JFK arrives at JFK 15:30 pm. Is it doable to get a flight to Düsseldorf (DUS) at 21:25 pm. Would that be enough time to go through Customs, get baggage check in again, etc.? I have no experience with international connecting flights. Thank you for any answer!!


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will be out of customs by 16:30 at the latest, so that leaves plenty of time to take the AirTrain to your departure terminal, check-in, and go through security.


  • is 1:15 min enough time

    we are arriving from yul on delta terminal 2 with a transfert delat terminal 4. will we have enough time or should we stress?


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Delta runs a shuttle bus between T2 and T4 inside security.


  • Transfer question
    Jan 1, 2015
    I am flying to Tampa on Virgin/Delta via JFK - single e-ticket. I have a 6 hour layover on outward so plenty of time for transfer. I arrive at JFK terminal 4 and I believe I have to go through immigration at JFK and collect bags and then go to JFK terminal 2 to check in for ongoing Delta flight. On the basis that I will have gone through immigration at JFK does the mean that the procedure will be quicker at Tampa when I arrive i.e. I will not have to go through immigration again as I have arrived on an internal flight? On return Delta flight from Tampa via JFK, are bags transferred direct to Virgin flight or do I have to collect them and recheck them in? Is the procedure different than the outgoing flight? I only have a 3 hour layover on return but assume this will be plenty of time. Any help will be appreciated. Sorry if these are silly questions but have always flown direct previously.


    Yes, upon arrival in Tampa you only have to go to the baggage claim and claim your bags. Upon leaving the US you do not have to go through US Immigration. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in JFK. Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between T2 and T4.


  • charlotte to JFK to Paris

    If I fly in to JFK from Charlotte on US AIr terminal 8 , what is the best way to get my luggage and re-check my luggage and get boarding pass with Air France . thanks


    You will need to claim your baggage then take the AirTrain to Terminal 1. Leave at least 2.5 hours for your transfer.


  • Terminal 2/3 to Terminal 1
    Dec 31, 2015
    Arriving 2:15pm on Delta (Terminal 2). Leaving 4:10PM Alitalia (terminal 1). Can I make this connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Your bags should be transferred automatically, all you have to do is take the AirTrain From T2 to T1 and go through security.


  • AA to BA
    Dec 31, 2015
    Arriving American Airlines JFK from Cancun 21:00 at T8. Depart British Airways at 00:05 from T7 .Is transfer time enough? Will bags need to be re-claimed and re-checked?


    Yes, that is enough time.in Terminal 8 you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the AirTrain to T7 and go through security.


    Thanks. Reclaim bags etc even though it is an American Airlines flight operated byBA?


  • T1 to T4
    Dec 30, 2015
    I will arrive at T1 from France and then traveling with Delta to San Francisco T4. I have 2hours45 minutes between the 2 flights. Is it enough ? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • AMS-JFK-SAT connection

    I'm a non US citizen flying in from Amsterdam on a KLM/Delta flight, connecting through JFK to a Delta flight to San Antonio. Which terminal(s) will I be arriving and departing from at JFK, and will 4 hours be enough for immigration, customs etc?


    You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to the departure level, through security and to your departure gate which will also be in Terminal 4. You have plenty of time.


  • AA to Norwegian
    Dec 29, 2015
    Is 45 minutes enough time between arrival at T8 and departure T1?


    NO! Absolutely not! AA and Norwegian do not have an interline baggage agreement, so you will have to claim your baggage and take it on the AirTrain to re-check. Even without checked baggage it's pretty much impossible.


  • from jet blue T5 in transit to korean air terminal 2-3
    Dec 28, 2014
    I will be getting off, from Jet Blue T5, heading to Korean air terminal 2-3, please advise me how to get to Korean air terminal.


    Korean Air uses Terminal 1. There is no Terminal 3. TO get from T5 to T3 you will have to take the AirTrain. It takes 10-15 minutes.
