ICAO code - KJFK


Operated by - The airport has been operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey under a lease with New York City since 1947.


Time Zone - EST (GMT -5)


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 son 14 y/o will travel alone unaccompanied through JFK airport to Boston to summer camp. What is the security policy if he carries a big hiking knife in his baggage bag?
Thank you

I have booked a shuttle service on the website: www.goairlinknyc.com, to pick me up at JFK airport early in the morning on 4th may. I have arrived at JFK terminal number 4 at the wright time, 3.30 am and, as accorded, I wait until 4.20 in front of the terminal exit, but no shuttle came to pick me. So I came inside the terminal and ask at welcome reception desk about a phone to call. The receptionists just show me the phone and told me to dial 18, as I did. Then, a person answered the phone and said that in 30 or 35 minutes he would pick me, and ask me to stay INSIDE THE TERMINAL waiting. He also said that he would call me by name.

I JUST SET NEAR THE TELEPHONE AND WAIT UNTIL 5AM, AND NOBODY CAME. So I call 18 again and the answer was: the shuttle had been there, but I wasn't there! Then, it was a "no show ticket". I said that IT WASN'T TRUE, SINCE I WAS SITTING THERE ALL THE TIME, BUT NOBODY CALLED ME. The attendant said that if i wanted to be picked up I HAD TO PAY AGAIN!

I argue that it was no fare, since nobody came inside the terminal calling me. At this time I asked the receptionist if she had heard anybody asking for me, and she said: NOBODY CAME HERE ASK FOR ANYBODY! She also oriented me to ask for a supervisor on the phone, but the attendant said there was no supervisor at that moment, that I should send an email, AND PAY AGAIN FOR THE SERVICE.

SINCE I REFUSED TO PAY AIRLINK AGAIN, I DECIDED TO ORDER ANOTHER SHUTTLE SERVICE. After hours waiting on the airport, tired and scared, I order another shuttle service, paying another charged ticket to take me home. Happily, it was a very efficient service, and i finally got home safe.

AT THIS MOMENT, I INSIST IN HAVING MY MONEY BACK FROM THIS SERVICE, SINCE THE SERVICE ORDERED IN 'GOAIRLINK' WAS NEVER DONE, BUT NOBODY AT GOAIRLING ANSWERES MY EMAILS.

IT IS THE MOST HORRIBLE SITUATION THAT CAN HAPPEN TO A FOREIGN TOURIST ARRIVING AT NIGHT IN A UNKNOWN COUNTRY. I HOPE THIS COMPANY COULD HAVE COMPAXION FOR THE VISITOR AND IMPROVED THIS SERVICE, IN ORDER IT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN, TO ANYBODY.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS SERVICES AND ALLERT THE AIRPORT MANAGER THAT IT ISN'T A TRUST SERVICE.

Sincerelly,
Ana Andrade

Hi, I flew from Boston to JFK yesterday Jan 16 and went on to Shanghai and then Changsha, China. My bags were not on either flight to China and we are thinking they are still at JFK. I need that bag but cannot access American airlines as I am in China. Would you please route this to American Airlines for me and hope they can send it to Changsha for me on one of their next flights.
