My son is holding a canadian student visa & will be travelling from Halifax to JKF AT TERMINAL 8.hIS CONNECTING FLIGHT IS FROM TERMINAL 4.Layover is 3.40 hrs.Is there enough time for him to take his luggage & go to terminal 4.
Does he require a transit visa.?
What is the best way to go from one terminal to another?

I happen to read your comment and I have the similar question. I am travelling to JFK in March and then transfering to Term 8 with about 3.40 hrs in between to take emirates airlines. I do have a visa to states. So is it easy to find the airtrain station. I am travelling with a baby as well and was wondering if I need to get out of the airport to take the train. The reason I was wondering that if I need to take winter jackets for me and baby. Also I am really stressed on finding the right airtrain and how to find the station etc. Also I hear when i return to Canada I have to check out and check in again at JFK, how do I do that when changing terminals. Would you happen to know.

I will arrive from Tampa to JFK at 8:00pm, but I do not know, what terminal or gate.
I will leave from JFK with flight LH405 at 9:35pm ( I think it is terminal 8, but I am not sure!)
My question: Time for changing the planes is only 1 and a half hour. Is it possible?

I've heard that there are no shops in terminal 8, is it true? Hard to belive, because in Helsinki Airport there are shops everywear...

i need to know if there are storage lugagge in terminal 8?

Where is the pet relief area at terminal 8?
If there is one?
