I arrive from ORD to JFK at 16.20 with AA and my flight to Helsinki leaves at 17.40 (FinnAIr). Will I have to pass the security again and is this enough time as everything is at Terminal 8? Thanks!

Both flights are at terminal 8 so no you dont have to clear security. My only concern is your tight time line of 1 20 minutes. Its possible to connect if your first flight is on time.

I am going to a business trip to Orlando Florida.
i'll be arriving (on American Airlines) from London, at Terminal 7 at 11:00 am. my flight departs to Orlando (on American Airlines) at 3:20 pm(at terminal 8).
My question is:
Since this is a transit situation, just for connecting flights, do i have to go through security and custom immigration when i arrive in NY? or just in Orlando?
how much time it requires to reach terminal 8 from terminal 7?
do i need to collect my luggage? or the AA will reconnect my bags?

Look at my posting on Terminal 7.

I am arriving at JFK on a Friday night at 8:50pm from Boston and departing on a 10pm flight to Buenos Aires. Is 1 hour 10 minutes enough time to make the change of plane since I am going from a domstic flight to an internatinoal flight?

Boston (BOS)
Depart 7:20 pm
Terminal B to New York (JFK) Terminal 8
Arrive 8:50 pm
Flight: 1807

New York (JFK)
Depart 10:00 pm Terminal 8
to Buenos Aires (EZE)

Make sure your bags are clipped all the way to your Buenos Aires and you have boarding passes for all your flights. My understanding is that both flights are with American Airlines so you will be just walking from arriving to departing gate. Good thing would be if your first flight arrived on time as well.

I have a few colleagues that are going to a business trip to Las Vegas.
They are arriving (on American Airlines) from London, at Terminal 8 at 3pm. They have 1.30' to connect (also at terminal 8) to Las Vegas.
My question is:
Since this is a transit situation, just for connecting flights, do they have to go through security and custom immigration when they arrive in NY? or just in LV?
Who much time it is this?
They need to collect their luggage? or the AA will reconnect their bags?
And if they lose the connection flight to LV?

They will clear Customs at JFK airport. It takes about 45 minutes which is tight for your connection.They need to recheck their luggage again though AA for their second flight. Before your colleagues leave make sure to call AA to check on their policy in case they miss their flight especially since you have a very close connection. JFK_Specialist

Hi,

We are arriving on Delta from Salt Lake City in Terminal 3 and going on to Terminal 8 to go to Turks and Caicos. What is the best way to go and about how long will it take? Also, will we have to go through security again when we go from terminal to terminal?

Thank you!

Take all terminals air train from T3 to T8. It takes about 2 minutes.

What is the best route between terminal 4 and 8? What are the options? Thank you!

Take any train on track 2 from terminal 4 to terminal 8.

Hi! I need to make you a question and I hope you can help me.My mother will arrive to terminal 4 (Taca ) at 1 a.m. and i will arrive to terminal 8 (AA) AT 6 A.M. My mother will wait for me, and we dont´t know where she can do that. My question is: a) How much is the distance between both terminals?, b) Can she walk that distance with her luggage (from terminal 4 to terminal 8) or she need to take a taxi or a transfer? c) In terminal 8, is there any place where get information about my flight so she can wait me in the correct gate? Thank you very much!

a Its is a quick ride on an air train of about 2 minutes. b She can take an air train on track 2 with her luggage. c Unfortunately terminal 8 is closed overnight and only terminal where you can meet and greet is terminal 4.

Hi! First of all, thank you for answering me. Is possible that my mother stays in Terminal 4 (her flight arrives at 1 a.m.)and at 6 a.m. she goes to Terminal 8 with the air train to meet me there? At what time opens terminal 8, the arrivals hall? I´ve never been in terminal 8,and, of course, i don´t know how it is, so, it´s ok if my mother wait for me in the arrivals hall of t8 at 6 a.m? Do you think it´s a good idea? Thank you very very much.
