I think that the airport needs to include a guide of the terminals and the travelling times between them each so that it helps people who are moving around for transit.

I would like to ask you about luggage storage at the airport. I fly home on 24th of september, but couple of days before the flight I'd like to place my luggage into storage. I don't know which is the Turkish Airlines terminal. Can you please someone help me?
Thank you very much!

We are flying out of terminal 7 in the late evening but would like to store our luggage in the morning to allow us to enjoy the day in New York. As terminal 7 appears to have no left luggage facility can we use the left luggage facilities at one of the other terminals.??

we have done this in the past, They needed confirmation that you were flying in or out of JFK, booking confo or boarding pass. (needs to be printed out)

Need to get from T1 (Flying with Air France) to Jamaica Station as quick as possible.. is the airtrain 1 way?
Ive seen replies of getting on at track 2 to get to T8, would that be quicker than going via all the terminals? Or is there a train to Jamaica station as T1 is also the first (or last) station on the map.
Please advise quickest route, thanks. Adam.

Is there a usual gate from which Finnair flight 6 departs or is it random?

Hello, I will arrive from Moscow on Aeroflot March 24 at JFK Terminal 1 at 18:10 .I will coming on a K-1( fiance) visa. Next my flight to Denver from Terminal 4 at 20:20.Is this enough time to clear customs, immigration, check my 2 bags and not miss my next flight please?
Thx in advance

In my experience no. Without baggage, just your carry-on, it is easier.

Hello, please could you tell me how long it takes to travel between terminals 7 and 8? I am flying from the UK to JFK, then need to catch a connecting flight to Austin, TX. How long does it usually take to get through immigration and passport control?
Many thanks for your help

I'm flying AA on October 4th to JFK from GIG (Rio de Janeiro - Brazil) and I will arrive at T8 at 6:45 am. My next flight Delta is at 11:15 am at T4 to MCO, enough time to get though immigration and custums. The question is: My luggage should be clipped in GIG STRAIGHT to final destination (MCO) despite begin different airline companies ?

Hi There,

I will be flying from LAS to JFK Landing at JFK at 5:49 if no delays.
My flight back to Johannesburg on Virgin leaves at 7:40.

Will there be enough time at JFK to get into Terminals, check in luggage and get onto 7:40 plane without rushing myself to death?


I arrive on a sunday at 6:40 pm at JFK from an international flight and would like to go on to Boston the same day. I will have to go international tax visa etc... and am concerned how long this might take. there are several offers for connecting flights to Boston, starting at 20:25 ... 21:00, till 22:55 pm... (the latest would probably be ok but of course it would be great not to arrive at Boston at midnight) how much time should I allow for to go through customs formalities, two security checks, transfer to other terminals etc... which connecting flight should I chose?

Would really appreciate knowing how long it will take to get from terminal 7 to 4? I have one hour... I called JFK, but I can't get a live person. \very much appreciated it you can get back to via email or post the details.
