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.

I am meeting Delta Flight 127 Madrid, Spain to JFK on 4/2/2012. There will be several Spanish rescue dogs coming as checked baggage with a passenger on the flight. Where can I expect the dogs to actually arrive (Delta Baggage counter in the terminal ??) I would appreciate that info.

Thanks

They should come out from Delta Baggage Counter. Thats my guess.

You do have enough time for your connecting flights. From T1 take any train on track 2 to T2.T3.

Hi,
Three of us are arriving at penn station at 7:45am and are hoping to take the LIRR to jamacia station. How long does it take the air train to get from Jamacia to terminal 8? Our flight is at 10:55.
Thanks

It takes about 2 minutes on an air train. Take it on track 1 to all terminals into T8.

2 mins from Jamaica to T8? Learn the airport - it is at least 10-20 mins
