  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 1

    I will be coming from Dubai by Emirates and will go to mexico. Emirates will arrive at 14:15 to Terminal 4 and my connecting flight to mexico is at 17:00 from Terminal 1 Aero Mexico, do I need to go through immigration check and will this time enough?

     

    Yes, upon arrival you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US customs. if your bags are tagged through to Mexico you can then immediately re-check them at the transfer desk. If they are not, then you will have to take them with you to T1 to check with AeroMexico. You will get your Aeromexico boarding pass in T1 and go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    My boyfriend and I are going to Ireland and fly domestic into JFK, then leave international to Ireland. Both flights are through Delta. Will we have enough time to get through to our connecting flight? I completely disregarded the time for customs when booking

     

    You will go through Irish immigration and customs when you get to Ireland. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. All you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. How much time do you have and where are you flying in from?

     

    A little more than an hour. We are flying LAX-JFK-DUB

     

    Yes, you should be OK and both of your flights will be in Terminal 4.

    We have a 1hr 10 min layover at JFK and will need to go from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4. Both are Delta airlines and we are wondering if there is enough time to get our connection. Do we have to get bags? Through security again? THANKS!

     

    No, you will not have to collect your baggage and if you take the Shuttle bus between terminals, you will not have to go through security.

    I'm planning to fly from SFO to JFK and then JFK to LHR (london) on Virgin America then Virgin Atlantic. Virgin flies in and out of Terminal 4. The layover time if 55 minutes. It looks like I will be landing and departing from the same terminal, but will I have to go through security again? Will 55 minutes be enough? Thanks!

     

    No, you will not have to go through security. That should be enough time.

     

    Thank you for your help1

    We are coming in on Delta at 2:30 pm Terminal 2 we have to get our bags and then get on train to terminal 4..are there carts to help us? We then have to recheck bags at Emirates checkin and go thru security--is there any place to go in Terminal 4 to hang out?

     

    T4 is the largest of the JFK terminals - which recently added a lot of restaurants & shops. The Xpress Spa is located at post-security gates A2, A4, B24 B25.

     

  • Transfer from T8 to T5 with separate tickets

    Hi, arriving from Helsinki to JFK T8 with Finnair at 3:50pm and have a connection to TPA with JetBlue, apparently from T5, at 7:36pm. I'm a Finnish citizen, tickets are bought separately and I am travelling with a cabin pet (dog). Do I still have enough transfer time with immigration, customs etc and time to take my dog to a pet relief area ? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    My family is arriving at terminal 2 from Buffalo at 7:30 with a connecting flight from the same terminal at 8:10. Both flights were booked through Delta, but the first is operated by Endeavor Air. Will our Luggage be transferred by the airline? I have always flown direct before. As the boarding time is the same as my landing time I am concerned.

     

    Yes, the airline will transfer the luggage. Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

     

    Thanks!

     

  • 1hr transition at JFK from T8 to T7

    We have a 1hr layover at JFK to transition from T8 to T7. We will be transitioning from a domestic flight, American Airlines, to an international flight, Iberian airlines, heading to Madrid. Has anyone experienced something similar. Any suggestions/tips.

     

    That should be enough time. Your bags will be checked through to Madrid. All you have to do is take the AirTrain from T8 to T7, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you

     

  • Jan flight from Israel need to connect to flight to SFO

    I'm arriving on Jan 19 2015 from Israel - am a US citizen, need to catch a flight to SFO. How much time should I allow for customs, baggage pickup, and getting to the domestic terminal so I won't miss my next flight

     

    What airlines are you flying? Will you be purchasing tickets separately or together?

     

    Flying in on Aeroflot, need to buy separate ticket to OAK. I need to know how much time to allow myself between arrival and departure

     

    Since you are buying separate tickets I would budget at least 2.5 hours between flights.

     

    Thank you!

     

  • Changing Terminals with C1 Transit visa

    Hello All, My wife is travelling Bangkok - Haiti, she has the C1 Transit visa already. However she will arrive with Emirates into Terminal 4, and will leave from a different terminal. How it is possible to change terminals with this visa? Thank you, James.

     

    You show the visa to get through US Immigration. When she exits customs she will be outside security and free to go wherever she wants. They monitor visa compliance by checking to see if she boarded her onward flight to Haiti.

     

  • Is there time enough, please help!

    I'm planning on arriving, have not bought the ticket yet, on the 5 of january 8:30 pm with probably US Airways to catch a connecting flight with Norwegian that leaves at a different gate 10:30 pm. This means that I have 2h approximately from touch down to pick up my bag, use the train that connects the terminals, check in my bags, go through security and go ombord before take off. I wonder, will I make it? How long times does it take to travel between the terminals? According to Norwegian they close their check-in 1hr before departure, have that in mind when you answer! Take care, AJ.

     

    You might have enough time if your first flight is on-time. but Delays at JFK are very common. It takes about 15 minutes to go from T8 to T4.

    Do you have to get your bags at Terminal 2 before going Terminal 4, both are Delta flights? Also do you take the tram or shuttle bus between the two terminals?

     

    If your bags are tagged to your final destination you do not have to claim them in JFK as long as your first flight is domestic. If you take the shuttle bus you do not have to go through security again in T4.

     

  • In terminal transfer for my bags

    Hello. I will travel from Chicago O'Hare with AA this Saturday, 27th. Arriving to JFK Terminal 8 at 4:15 PM. Next flight will leave to Helsinki, Finland also from Terminal 8, operated by Finnair Scheduled departure at 5:40 PM. Ticket was bought from one airline. Both companies are members of One World Alliance. Question: would 1 hour 25 minutes window be sufficient for my bags to be transferred in JFK. A bit worried to stay without bags in Helsinki following morning...

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. That is a very simple transfer.

     

    Thanks a lot! Will take my chance to check this out. Will post after if everything went well. Take care!
