Can you tell me if the online reserved parking at jfk in terminal 5 is legitimate. I saw it on a port authority web site.


It is on the PA site and is legit. Reserve space in short term lots, cost is $5 to reserve plus parking fees.

My car will be at the airport for about 18 hours. Is that considered short term or long term parking. Please advise so I know where to park.

It all depends on where you park. The lot across from the terminal is the short term lot and costs $33 per day, the lot out near Lefferts Blvd is the long term lot and costs $18 per day.

How much does it cost per day to park in JFK's Terminal 5 short term parking including tax? Is a reservation needed?

$33 per 24 hour period, no reservations.

Does long term parking require reservations? How much time should be alloted for air train service from JFK long term parking to Terminal 5?

Is there any additional fees to long term parking? Also I am travelling to Turkey and want to know if there is a closer area to park near turkish airlines in the parking lot?

Hi, I would be parking short term at the terminal parking lot this coming Thursday. There is a forecast of heavy rain that day. Does anyone know if the parking is indoors or outdoors and how much time does it take to walk from the lot to the airtrain stop?

Short term parking across from the terminals is generally indoor and you just walk across the roadway to the terminals. AirTrain is located near the lot entrances except T4 where AirTrain is on the third floor of the terminal.

What is the address of the Lefferts Blvd. parking lot? And why didn't they put it on this page? Is this legitimate?

My wife and I have a 9:30 pm flight on Delta (international). What are the best long term parking options ?

My friend is picking me up at Terminal 7, where should he park? And, if he is handicapped, where can he park so he doesn't have to get out of car, and where do I go to find him?

Are long term options red and yellow indoor?

No, the colored lots are all short term. Long term parking is all outdoor and located at Lefferts Blvd.

Is Lefferts Blvd in the airport? If not, how do I get there travelling from East Long Island (Belt Parkway?)

Lefferts Blvd runs south into airport property. From westbound Belt Pkwy exit onto N. Conduit Ave, pass the exit for the Van Wyck, turn left on Lefferts Blvd to long term parking. Or take the airport exit off the Belt and follow signs to long term parking.
