Am arriving at JFK on Etihad at 4.30pm and will catch Delta flight to Portland Oregon at 8.30pm. I take it 4 hours is sufficient and will we need to change terminal
Yes, that should be enough time. You will just have to claim your bags from Etihad in Terminal 4, take them on the AirTrain to Terminal 2, re-check them with Delta, and go through security. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi.
I'm flying from Portland to JFK and then from JFK to London next Thursday. All flights are on Delta and I have 1 hour 45 minutes between flights- is this enough time to make it to my next flight? Do you have to re-enter security for an international flight? Thanks!
Yes, that is plenty of time. No, you do not have to go through security in JFK on your way to London. If you arrive in Terminal 2 it is connected to Terminal 4 where you will depart by a shuttle bus inside security.
Thank you so much!
I am flying from Pittsburgh to JFK on Saturday then flying to Bermuda. I'm flying Delta. My layover is 1 hr and 20 mins. Is that enough time?
Second my flight home the layover is only 43 minutes. Is that possible?
Yes, it is possible, on your way to Bermuda you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal 4. On the return you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda, so the procedure in JFK is the same, just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello, we are flying tomorrow am to JFK from Orlando and then fly out on Turkish Airlines. Do we have to get our bags and recheck them? and/or go through TSA again?
What airline are you flying to JFK? Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? I can't answer your question with the information you have provided.
Sorry, we are flying jet blue from orlando and turkish airlines to istanbul from JFK. We booked through expedia.
OK, in JFK you will arrive in Terminal 5, take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. You don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK on you way out of the US.
Flying Aeroflot SU100 connecting in JFK to Toronto Delta 4068. What terminals Aeroflot arrives from Moscow and Delta leaves to Toronto, is 3.45 enough connection time? Is there customs/immigration to go through?
You will arrive in Terminal 1, 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 Terminal 4, go through security and to your departure gate. If you are a Russian Citizen you will need a US Transit Visa. You should have enough time.
Flying Alitalia from Rome (FCO) to JFK and connecting to AA back to SFO. I will have 3hr 15min between flights. I will not have any checked bags. These are two itineraries. Do you think there will be plenty of time to get through customs, immigration, take the air train to the AA terminal and then catch the flight back to SFO? Thanks for your input!
That should be just enough time if your flight from Rome is on-time. Check in online for your flight to SFO before leaving Rome.
I am flying from Chicago to JFK, going in to terminal 2. I have a 57 minute layover. Is that enough time to make it to an international flight leaving from terminal 4?
Delta flights from Chicago to JFK arrive in Terminal 4. You have enough time if both flights are on Delta. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If for some reason you do arrive in T2, Delta has a shuttle bus that runs inside security to T4.
Hello, we're flying tomorrow night into JFK with JetBlue from Tampa, arriving at 11:40 PM. Our next international flight is with China airline at 1:35 AM. The flights are booked together. How much time would I need to get from one terminal to the next? How do I get there? Thanks in advance!
You have to take the AirTrain from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 and go through security. You should have just enough time. Note that China Airlines and Air China are two separate airlines. China Airlines is the one that flies to Taipei.
If I arrive at Terminal 5 at 8:00PM and my second flight departs from Terminal 1 at 10PM will I make it, and do I have to claim my bags and re-check them ?
Where are you flying from into Terminal 5? Are both tickets on the same reservation or are they on two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question with the information you have provided.
Sorry, I am flying fromThe caribbean, St Lucia with Jetblue to Terminal5 and then with Norwegian to Oslo from Terminal1. Tickets are booked separately..
Then, yes, in Terminal 5 you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then you would have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Norwegian, and go through security. There is ZERO chance that you can make this connection.
What about travelling without luggage, if only a carry-on?
Then maybe you'd barely have a chance if everything went perfectly.
We are landing in JFK tonight at 11 in Terminal 2, due to weather delays. My international flight leaves at 1130 from terminal 1. Do I have enough time to make it, and how do I get there?
You get between terminals using the AirTrain. However, you have to go through security again in T1. You won't make your connection unless that flight is also delayed.
