History - Construction of the airport began in 1942 with modest ambitions. Only 1,000 acres (4 km²) of land on the site of Idlewild golf course were earmarked for use. The golf course provided the airport's original namesake, Idlewild Airport. First commercial flights began on July 1, 1948. The airport was formally dedicated as New York International Airport on July 31, 1948. It was re-dedicated on December 24, 1963 as John F. Kennedy International Airport, following action of the Mayor and Council of the City of New York, and a resolution of the Commissioners of the Port Authority. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, JFK was one of the first airports in the United States to be temporarily closed.

My family is flying with out two dogs from Tanzania relocating back to CO with US passports. We plan to spend the night in NYC before proceding to CO the next evening. I understand that there is a kennel in the airport where I can leave my dogs overnight. What is the procedure for clearing the dogs through customs and getting them to the kennel? Are there also places to store excess baggage overnight at the airport?

hello,
I have a plain from JFK to Europe by Turkish airlines from terminal 1. I am wondering to know if there is any possibility to recover my taxes at the terminal 1 and where exactly? This is enough to have just the invoice? Thank you.

A friend of mineis arriving from Rome on 12th oct. at 1.55 pm with Alitalia flight, I'm arriving from Los Angeles with either Delta or American Airlines (leaving between 6.30 and 7 am). We want to meet and take the shuttle to Manhattan/Grand Central togheter. What would you please suggest we should do? thank you and best regards. G.

my daughter will be arriving on an aer lingus flight from ireland arriving at jfk terminal 4 at 620. I would like to book her on a flight leaving jfk at 830 on american airlines (I believe it is terminal 8. Will 2 hours be enough time for delays, customs, and baggage. And if so, how does she get from one terminal to the other.

If she departs from Shannon she will pre-clear US Customs there, if not then two hours is mimimum to allow for customs and terminal transfer. From T4 go to 3rd floor and take AirTrain on track 1 to T8.

i'll arrive on 3.oct at 3:15pm from cairo to jfk and i'll reserve delta at 6:25pm from jfk to msy on 3.oct.can time be enough to make check customer and go to boarding

Hi

Tnx

Hi there,

I was hoping you could advise on the following matter:

I'll be arriving on a QR flight from Doha at 1500. I was hoping to hop on an AA flight to Boston at 1640. Considering that both flights are in T8, would you reckon 1 hour 40 minutes be sufficient for me?

Thank you.

I have to pick up my wife from the airport this week. She is traveling from Kilaminjaro to JFK by way of Amsterdam. She is scheduled to arrive in the late afternoon. How long should it take her to clear customs?

I am arriving JFK from Instabul, Turkey at 3.45 pm on 17th Sept. and would like to take a bus to Boston, how long does it take to clear customs and get a bus or train to Boston?

Allow at least one hour for customs clearance. Take ground transportation (bus or subway) to Penn Station and take either Amtrak train or Megabus to Boston. Bus is cheaper than train, bus is located a block from Penn Station on 9th Ave.
