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 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.

How can I go to the Rent a car offices(National) with my dog and the Box
Thanks

HiLuisFB,

understand ur worries. Been there, done that! U will need to find a clerk to help you with the travel box. Disassemble it for the taxi. Grab a taxi with the box, luggage and ur dog to get to National. Or store ur box and return for it later.
All the best, good luck and safe travels!!

First time in JFK. I am arriving from Málaga at 12:45 pm and taking my flight to San Francisco at 14:37 pm. Tickets have been bought separately. - Will I have time enough to take the domestic flight? - And what are the steps I will have to take?. Fe: I don't know if I have to go through customs /inmigration twice, if the distance is long between terminals, etc. Advice about this will be most appreciated.

Hello,

I have a friend who is coming over from Australia, and landing in terminal 7. I will be landing a few hours earlier from Germany in Terminal 1.

So, I have 2 questions:
1) My friend has a stopover at LAX on her way... so will she have to go through customs in NY? I had assumed no, but terminal 7 appears to only be an international terminal.

2) Is there a good, very clear meeting point in terminal 7 where I can tell her to meet me? We won't have working cell phones, so I need something that is easy and unmissable.

Thanks!

1.Yes.
2. Meet her at Subway Restaurant at T7.

I appreciate your kind help

Not an experienced traveler. Arriving by Jet Blue at 5:45pm on Fri ( 5/18) checking a bag. How do I get from bag claim to airport transportation to T 7 for a 8:40pm dept on Iceland Air? Is the air train the best way to get to T 7? About how long will it take to get to T 7? Do I have enough time time to do all this?

See my previous response.

Thank you for your response. Forgive my stressing!

I am traveling with my service dog from JFK-Moscow-Larnaca. The Aeroflot airline knows it is a service dog and will NOT confirm my dog on the flight to Moscow. Is this allowed? I am a US citizen with proper documentation for my dog. Thank you!!
