If I leave several pieces of luggage in a 24 hour luggage store (I think is Terminal 4) on Sunday night, and I recover them on Monday evening (less than 24 hours), would I be charged for one or for two days?.

If your items are in the storage less than 24 hours you will be charged for one day.

Hello. My parents have a fly to Miami at 11.00 am and my home back fly is at 08.00 pm. I want to get there with them, but...what can I do from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm at the airport????

We will be arriving on terminal 1 and need to store the luggage for 8 hrs. Can we store it in terminal 1 itself or should we take it to terminal 4? Also kindly advice as to how to go about it..Thanks

You can store it at Terminal 1 . The only limitation is that the storage at Terminal 1 is NOT open 24 hrs, while the one at Terminal 4 is. The storages are located on the first floor of the terminals.

We will arrive at T4 and have a flight the next day from T5 (JetBlue). We intend leaving some bags overnight. Can someone please advise if the luggage storage at T4 is so located that we could access it to pick-up our bags even if we are not travelling out through T4? Also, what are the travel options between T4 and T5 and how much time does it take?

Thanks and regards,


Hello Sam,
The baggage storage at T4 is located on the first floor by Hotel reservation desk. It is accessible for everybody/ not only for T4 passengers/.
You can either walk from T4 to T5 or take Airtrain . It will take you no more that 10 min between those two terminals either walking or by Airtrain.

Thanks a lot.


We will arrive in Terminal 4 and intend to leave some bags there. The onward flight is from Terminal 5 the next day. The question I have is, will it be possible to pickup bags from Terminal 4 and then proceed to terminal 5? Like is the luggage storage in terminal 4 located so that someone that is not travelling out through that terminal also access it? Also, how much time would it take us to travel from T4 to T5?



Everybody can leave bags at the storage facility at T4.
From T4 to T5 it will take you no more than 10min(either walking or by Airtrain)

I'm staying in NY for 3 days. I have a ski bag (approx 200cm long) I want to leave at the airport. Is that possible??

Sweet! thanks!
