ICAO code - KJFK

Operated by - The airport has been operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey under a lease with New York City since 1947.

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.

Hi. Travelling from New York JFK to Las Vegas on Delta 1529 1st September Due to depart at 10.20. Can you please tell me how many hours before we need to check in (2 suitcases and hand baggage) and also how long more or less we should allow to travel at that time of day from Times Square Area to the Airport. Thanks very much.

2 hours before your scheduled flight.

My daughter is supposed to arrive at JFK airport at
10 55 am on By Singapore airlines fight and needs to catch the AA flight to Indianapolis at 2 30 pm . Her uaggage has been directly checked in to Indianapolis .

But her flight is delayed and she will arrive at 12 35 pm only at JFK .

Will she have enough time to clear her Immigration and go to terminal 8 to catch AA flight to Indianapolis ?

Yes she should be OK.

Is there a way, other than taxi, to get from the Terminal to Delta Air Cargo, and vice versa?

Could one call (or pre-arrange) for a cab from Air Cargo to a further destination (Ozone Park)? Would the trip from Air Cargo to Ozone Park fall under the Flat Rate Fare for Airport trips, or would it be metered?

The situation is: I need to get to& from Delta Air Cargo to p/u and drop off my dog. I would be w/out the dog going to and from the terminal, and so wouldn't HAVE to travel by cab if other options were available. Would need the cab though between Air Cargo and Ozone Park, both coming and going.

Looking for the least expensive way to travel. Traveling daylight hours both times. Non-peak outbound, possibly Peak hours for the portion from AirCargo to JFK Terminal on the return journey.

Thank you in advance for any assistance/info you can provide.

i will arrive on october 28 Delata 269 at 04.45 at terminal 4 and my connection is on terminal 3 Delta 871 on 8.25

1. Take an air train on track 2 from terminal 4 to terminal 3.
2. Yes you do.
