  • T4 to T2
    Mar 1, 2016
    We are coming into JFK Terminal 4 on a flight from Toronto at 7:50am, and need to catch a 9:15am flight to San Juan in Terminal 2. Are we going to need to go through security at Terminal 2? Is that sufficient time?


    Note that most flights to San Juan use terminal 4, but if you do need to go to Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between T4 and T2. You have plenty of time.

    I'm flying into JFK at 10.45am on Turkish Airlines, then out of JFK to Las Vegas at 5pm on Delta the same day. I'm not a US citizen, but have visa waiver. Is this enough time with security and baggage collection and rechecking?


    Yes, that is plenty of time.


  • short layover at JFK coming from MXP and on to LAX
    Feb 29, 2016
    AA flight 199 leaving MXP 10:25 am arriving JFK 1:35 pm; departing JFK on AA flight 117 at 3:00 pm to LAX. Will have no checked bags, only carryon. In business class so will be off first. Will this be enough time to clear immigration and customs and make next flight to LAX?


    Considering you don't have checked bags and are flying business class, you should have enough time.

    hi i am flying into terminal 5 from shannon ireland arriving at 14.35 i must make connecting flight to seattle in terminal 2 at 18.50 is this enough time to colect bag and go through customs


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Shannon. No flights to Seattle depart from Terminal 2. What airline are you flying to Seattle?

    how to reach from terminal 4 to terminal1 how much time required


    The AirTrain. If both tickets are on the same reservation and the first flight is domestic 90 minutes would be required, if two international flights or two separate reservations, I recommend at least 3 hours.


  • Connection with American Airlines

    I Will arrive From Dallas to jfk for a connecting flight from jfk to Paris (France) (Also on American Airlines) - just handbag.... Does 1h10 for the transfer is ok ?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in terminal 8.


  • T8 to T7
    Feb 27, 2016
    We are arriving on an AA flight at 12:30 at T8, and have a 2:45 flight on Cathay Pacific at T7. Will we have enough time to make the transfer. Where do we find Air Tran,and how long does the ride take and how often does the Air Tran run.


    The AirTrain runs very frequently, just follow the signs to the Airtrain or pointing to other terminal numbers. You should have enough time.


    Thank you, do we have to go through security again


    Yes, you do.


  • Connecting from Toronto to London
    Feb 25, 2016
    Flying from Toronto on first Delta flight of the day, getting to JFK at 0750, aiming to make a Virgin Atlantic flight to London leaving 0915. Is this enough time to make the connection? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be 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, both in Terminal 4.


  • Connecting flight time gap is 1.35 hrs
    Feb 24, 2016
    We would arrive at JFK from Heathrow through British airways at 13.05(terminal 8). We have a connecting British airways flight ( operate by American Airlines) to RDU at 14.40. Is the waiting time enough?


    If both flights are on American and use Terminal 8 that is barely enough time.


    Thanks ZAP


  • American - YUL JFK LHR
    Feb 24, 2016
    Hi, AA offers a flight from YUL (montreal) to London (LHR) via JFK. Connection time is exaclty 1 hour in JFK. As Montreal as pre-immigration this part should be fine. However I think I need to get from T8 to T7? Possible??? Thank you!!!


    If both flights are on AA then they will both be in T8 and it is possible. If the flight to LHR is operated by British Airways then it will depart from T7 and you will have to take the airtrain and go through security again in T7, which makes it a bit more difficult.


  • T8 to T5 2 Hrs 45 Mins
    Feb 22, 2016
    Hi, Is 2.45HRs a comfortable amount of time to arrive in T8 from Orlando, Collect bags, get to T5 ,recheck in with Aer Lingus and still make my flight. I would arrive in T8 at 615PM and the EI flight is at 9PM Or would I be pushing it? Thanks SK


    I think that would be enough time.


  • T4 to T8
    Feb 22, 2016
    Flying from the UK - land at 13.35 in JFK (T4) and have a 15.40 flight from T8 - is this enough time?


    On Two separate itineraries I think that will be very difficult if not impossible if you have checked bags.


  • From Terminal 7 BA to Terminal 1 Aeromexico 2 hours
    Feb 21, 2016
    Hi, I would like to know if 2 hours is enough to go to customs and securyty when Im flying only with hand luggage, separate tickets, thanks a lot!


    With no checked bags 2 hours should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Security Check?
    Feb 21, 2016
    I fly from Minneapolis to JFK T4 through Delta on March 11 and reach JFK at 16:47. My connection flight is AF(operated by Delta) from same terminal T4 at 19:05. Should I go through security check again at JFK?


    No, you will not have to go through security again in JFK. You have plenty of time.


  • connection between terminal S to terminal8
    Feb 21, 2016
    Will I have enough time to transfer from a jetblue flight to Am. Airline(terminal 8) in an hour and half? No checked bags and early in am.


    If you check in online for your American flight and your Jetblue flight arrives on-time that should be just enough time.
