Take any train on track 1 from t3 to t1. It should take about 2 minutes. There are cafe shops at terminal 1.

Hi,
Please can you advise if there are any companies that offer airside assistance from international flights, example, meet the passenger from the flight, help thru immigration and boarder control and collect luggage and out of the airport?
Many thanks

hi can anyone please help, How do I go from East Rutherford to JFK airport by public transport?

Take the NJ Transit bus to Port Authority. Then the subway to JFK.

Subway - Port Authority: the A and the E will take you to Queens from where you can take the Airtrain to the right terminal.
So A to FarRockway (don't take the one to Laeffert's Blvd) and then the airtrain
Or
E to Jamaica, Queens and Airtrain to JFK.

The whole trip might take you a little under 2 hrs.
