I'll be flying from Tampa to JFK on JetBlue which I believe uses Terminal 5. Then I've to catch flight to Doha on Qatar air. I'm told that my luggage will be checked in from Tampa to Doha, but I'll have to go to Qatar' counter to get boarding passes. Is Qatar check-in counter located in Terminal 8? How do I get there from terminal 5? This is my first visit to JFK and am with 2 kids. I've 2 hrs and 15 minutes between flight, is that enough?

Yes it is located at Terminal 8. From T5 take any train on track 2 to T8. You should have enough time with 2 hours and 15 minutes time frame.

My family is travelling from JFK to cleveland on AA4172. I wanted to know, whether they are at terminal or not

I will fly from helsinki to JFK, arrived at 13:30 in terminal 8. In the same day, my mother will take flight CA981, from Beijing to JFK, arrived at 14:20 in terminal 1. Her english is poor, so I have to help her pass customs. So, how could I do this? (we are both Chinese and hold b type visa).

Hello, I will arrive from MIA at terminal 3. How do I get the fastest to terminal 8? I have two hours ground time only...
Thanks in advance,

From T3 take any train on track 2 to T8. It takes about 2 minutes.

Hi, I am flying from Orlando and my plane is landing at 21:40 at Terminal 8. Then I have to go to Terminal 4 where I have a flight to Warsaw at 22:55. Could you please let me know if it is enough time? Do I have to make customs etc at JFK or at Orlando International Airport. Thank you for your help!

It is very tight. You dont have to clear Customs or Immigration for that matter since you are leaving US. All you have to do is to clear security at terminal 4 at JFK airport.

Hi, I will arrive from Helsinki to Terminal 8 with Finnair flight at 15.50 p.m. and my connecting AA flight to San Diego leaves from same Terminal 8 at 17.29. Do you think that I have enough time to get to my connecting flight? How long time does it usually take to go through immigration and recheck luggage?

Yes you have enough time and it takes around 45 minutes to clear immigration and customs.

I will arrive to NY with Finnish airlines at 15.50 at terminal 8. From terminal 8 I have to fly with AA to Chicago at 17.20. Is it enough time to get through immigration and custom office, take baggage and check in to Chicago?

It depends on how busy immigration and customs is when you arrive, please remember that you have to recheck your bags and walk to departing gate for second flight. Your time frame is tight.

Finnair offered us a flight from Helsinki to San Diego via JK airport: arriving at JK at 16.50 to Terminal 8;
we have the next flight from the same terminal 8 at 17.05 to San Diego. It is called non stop flight….Should we manage to get in time? should we take our luggage?

Thank You for our assistance;

Thank You for the answer;
Sorry we arrive at 15.50, so the time between flights is 1.15; but the best way is to change the tickets, if it is possible?
Thank You

Yes try that. It is always a good idea to have 2 to 3 hours between your flights for a comfortable connection.
