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.

Hello -

I have a passenger coming in to Term 3 at 4:50am. She will have to wait for the Livery Driver until approx 8am. Is there someplace she can safely relax/rest/spend this time without going to a hotel?

Thank you

She may always wait at terminal 3 arrivals hall.

Good morning,
We are trying to track down a passenger who arrived from Port of Spain on 28 Jan. He was due to connect onward from JFK to Frankfurt on LH401, and onto Split(Croatia) that same day. He missed those flights, was reprotected onto same flights on 29 Jan but these were also missed. We are having major difficulty in getting in touch with this passenger - can you please put an all terminal call out for him to call either his employers, or ourselves - ATPI Travel, London, 44 207 111 8930.
Many thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Thanks.

I am dropping off a feind at Terminal 1, EVA Airways.

I picked him up at lower level arrival area. Where does he go in relation to the arival area to check in for departure?
Thanks, Joe

I've heard I can get sales tax refund at the airport if I am a tourist. It is that possible? Where is that office at the airport? Thanks

I have an international flight tomorrow. Can you tell me how I can get from Terminal 3 to TM1 for Morocco. Is TM1 the gate number? I will be arriving from Atlanta and have a 3 hr 40 min layover at JFK. I just want to be sure to have enough time for international flight. Thank you.

MY SON WILL ARRIVE FROM ZURICH ON SWISSAIR TO T4 ,AFTER HE PASSES CUSTOMS HE NEEDS TO GO TO AA T8 ,DOES HE NEEDS TO CARRY WITH HIM THE LUGAGGE TO RECHECK IN T8

if the itinerary has the final destination included, and if the luggage is thru checked into final destination, he doesnt have to carry it to T8. as soon as he finishes customs, there is a place to handover the luggage for checkin.

It's impossible to find out when terminal 7 is open for a 6 A.M. flight, I've been all over the web. Does anyone know what the operating hours of this terminal are? You would think this would be the easiest thing to find in the world, but no, apparently it's a secret!

Stuck all day up all night is there a place in the terminal that one can rent a bed for the day???

Unfortunately not at JFK airport you may think about a hotel.
