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.

My family is flying with out two dogs from Tanzania relocating back to CO with US passports. We plan to spend the night in NYC before proceding to CO the next evening. I understand that there is a kennel in the airport where I can leave my dogs overnight. What is the procedure for clearing the dogs through customs and getting them to the kennel? Are there also places to store excess baggage overnight at the airport?

my daughter will be arriving on an aer lingus flight from ireland arriving at jfk terminal 4 at 620. I would like to book her on a flight leaving jfk at 830 on american airlines (I believe it is terminal 8. Will 2 hours be enough time for delays, customs, and baggage. And if so, how does she get from one terminal to the other.

If she departs from Shannon she will pre-clear US Customs there, if not then two hours is mimimum to allow for customs and terminal transfer. From T4 go to 3rd floor and take AirTrain on track 1 to T8.
