hi,not a USA citicen, I will arrive international flight on dic 18 at 6pm in terminal 4 and depart from terminal 5 in different airline at 10pm, where do i go after inmigration and costums to do the check in for jetblue? thanks
When you arrive you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US Customs. Then if your bags are not checked through to jetblue you will take them with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 5, check them with JetBlue and go through security. You should have enough time.
We are flying from FCO>JFK>DFW all with delta. We have to claim luggage, go through customs and recheck it at jfk, correct? Then go through TSA security again if im right. Is 3 hours enough to make this connection at jfk?
Yes, you have to do all that. Yes, that is enough time.
Leaving tomorrow with Interjet Flight 961.
What terminal ?
That flight operates from Terminal 7 as opposed to the rest of the Interjet flights that use Terminal 1.
Good day,
I'm flying from Mexico City to Moscow via JFK and have 3 hours in between, however my flights were booked separately, which means I have to go through immigration, collect luguage and check in again. Is it enough time and would it be possible to use speed line for immigration? How can I do this in the shortest possible time? Thank you.
That's barely possible if everything goes perfectly. There is no "speed line" for immigration when entering on a Visa.
I am flying from PUJ (Dominican Republic) to Philadelphia with and over night layover at JFK. Will I be able to retrieve my checked luggage in order to go through customs at JFK and then recheck the bag to continue to PHL?
You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs but you will not be able to re-check your bags until the next morning.
I will be flying in this Sunday from SFO on AA arriving around 3.45pm at T8 and my friend is arriving the same time at T8 from Berlin on AB. Where is the best spot to meet up ? P.S. I do have to pick up my checked luggage and don't think I am allowed back, to meet her at the international Arrival Gate.
Thank you for your help !
Meet at the exit of customs on the lower level.
I would be arriving at terminal 4 of JFK at 7-20 AM on 20th Sept,2016. Next I would be flying to Mexico by a Delta flight at 9-40 AM. Is the time gap enough?
If both flights are on the same reservation then that should be enough time.
Hello, I have a question about baggage transit/transfer desk.
In July 2016,
When I arrived at JFK from Incheon(South Korea) for going to Santo Domingo, there was Baggage Transit desk of Asiana and I used it.
But I couldn't find Baggage Transit Desk of JetBlue when I arrived at JFK from Santo Domingo for going back to Incheon.
So I went to Asiana Check-in desk for doing my check-in(Boarding Pass) and I did check-in my baggage once again.
Is there any Baggage transit/transfer desk of JetBlue in JFK Airport? and If you know it, Where is it?
Only in Terminal 5.
Thank you.
I already know that JetBlue uses Terminal 5.
But I couldn't see the baggage transit desk when I arrived at JFK Terminal 5.
Anyway, if I go there once again, I will try to find it.
Thank you so much!!
how long a layover do i need on american airlines in jfk coming from st martin going to boston to clea customs
That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying Delta from Halifax. A US citizen. What all will I have to do between flights? I have 45 minutes between flights. Am worried about being able to make it.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. If both flights are on Delta all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
