are there duty free stores at terminal 5? if yes, at what time are they opened?

We arrive on a JetBlue flight at 5:20 am, which is really 3:20 am for us, the morning of our cruise. Ideally, we'd rather stay on the side with the food and plenty of seating, but we don't want to leave our baggage unattended at baggage claim which means we'll be passing the security check point and (to my knowledge) cannot return. Is there somewhere we can go on that side of security to burn a few hours in either Terminal 5 or another Terminal? I should mention we'll be traveling with some very tired children.

Terminal 4 is a place where you can go - there is a food court(It opens at 6am I believe) where you can stay and also retail area outside security.


My friend is arriving on Jet blue at terminal 5 7.32pm and has a flight to tel aviv terminal 4 9:10pm will she make it and how can she get from terminal 5 to 4

She will be fine , the time window is enough. Let her go on the third floor of T5, follow the signs to the Airtrain, take it on track 2 and get off next stop(T4). All in all is about 10-15 min trip.

My wife and son are landing at JFK Terminal 5 at 11.25 am tomorrow.

They have to take a connecting flight (international) from terminal 4. Since they are travelling with a lot of luggage, it will be very difficult for my wife to move the bags between terminals.

Could you guide me the easiest way to transfer the luggage between the terminals? Is there any help available at JFK for baggage transfer?

Please note that my wife is not a US citizen, so she would have to go through the customs. The international flight (from terminal 4) leaves at 4 PM.


I am looking at arriving at 8.40 am from Fort Lauderdale on JetBlue and have a connecting flight to South Africa on SAA leave at 10.40
Is there enough time to make the connection ?


On the 25. November my daughter arrive with jetblue from Burbank at 15:30 and I arrive from Paris with Air France at 15:40. We need to go to Manhattan ( SoHo) by bus or train. Were is the best place to meet?

Terminal 1 is the best place . Let your daughter take Airtrain on track 1 , get off at T1 and wait for you on the first floor by international arrivals.

does anyone know how long it takes to go from the 4th terminal to the 5th one ?

~5-10 mins - either walking or via Airtrain.

Hi, I will be travelling with JetBlue on November 13th arriving from Buffalo. We are then transferring to another JetBlue plane to continue on to Dominican Republic.
Do we need to go to a different terminal to catch our connecting flight? We only have just over an hour to get to a different terminal if we do.

Both flights should arrive/depart at T5.

Will we need to go through security before catching our connecting flight to Dominican (also with JetBlue)?
