I should arrive at JFK T1, from Italy, on Friday , and I should take the next flight at T4 at 17:55; is it enough time to get it?
Does all the connection trains (among terminals) are free? I mean Howard Beach route , Jamaica Station route and all terminal loop.
Thanks

I live in Manhattan and planning a trip I have a senior reduce M.T.A.card can I use the card on the AIRTRAIN?

coming in on Jet Blue domestic, connecting to Emirates to Dubai, is there a way to conenct without having to go through security again?
thanks

How safe is the long term parking, in regards to theft of vehicle if left for a week?

Is there free Wifi at the airport arriving from Qatar

where do I see a map or some kind of illustration, which indicates the links between these two airports. For someone not familiar with New York city, the trains, as shown, are almost confusing .

You have to go into NYC either by train, via Jamaica station, or Airporter Bus, at airport, and then to airport, not a direct route. I haven't done it but have taken Airporter and while it can be slow the drivers are helpful. It's around $30, I think. A taxi might do it but would be expensive. It's not a great choice unless have entire day.

Hello,
I am arriving @ 11.20am in T8 and departing @ 14.15 @ T3. As this is international I presume my luggage will be transferred through?
What is the best option for transferring between these terminals and how much time is required? Thank you

Cannot help too much regards how to transfer and how long it might take but I can inform you that you will have to clear Immigration at T 8 and also collect your baggage and clear customs.
As you clear customs there should be a TRANSIT counter where you can check your baggage in again.

Hello. Could you please post a reference map illustrating the air train routes on your web page?

I'm off the plane at about 9:30pm and planning to take a J train to Flushing ave. in Brooklyn.
Does the airtrain still run at night time?
