I am arriving AA from Canada at JFK Terminal 8 at 1:10 PM. I only have carry-on bags, no check-in bags. I need to connect flight at Terminal 4 Air India at 3 PM.

(a) Since this is a transit situation just for connecting flights between 2 terminals, do I have to go through security and custom immigration again at Terminal 4 ?

(b) Since I have carry-on bags, how much time is needed to go from Terminal 8 to Terminal 4, if I have to clear custom & immigation, and security again ?

(c) Is there usually a long line for custom & security clearance at Terminal 4 ?

Thank you !

1. Yes
2. About 45 minutes.

You will only need to clear security at T4, you will clear US customs prior to departure at your Canadian airport so no need to clear customs on arrival at JFK. Security lines at T4 are usually pretty long.

Hi, I'm fly from Saigon, Vietnam to Raleight, NC. After stop 1 at Seoul, I will stop 2 in JFK airport at Terminal 4, then leave in Terminal 8 to RDU. I will have 3hr to change airlines. Pls tell me that I have to get my luggages and recheck my luggages in JFK or not? By the way, in the returning trip to Vietnam, I just have 1hr30min to change airlines and change terminal from 1 to 5 in O'Hare Airport, is it possible for me to change terminal and planes in a short time like that? and I have to check out and check in luggages in ORD? pls help me, thank you so much.

Your first time frame is good the second one is tight but possible to reconnect.

Thank you for your reply. But pls tell me that I will get my luggage and recheck it in JFK or leave it until my final destination? thank you.

Thank you for your reply, pls tell me that i will get my luggage and recheck it in JFK or leave it until my final destination? thank you.

You will clear your luggage through US Customs and Immigration at JFK.

We are booked on an Aer Lingus flight that arrives at terminal 4 at 1:15pm. I need to book a fight from JFK to LAX. There is a Virgin America flight at 4:55pm. Is this enough time to get our luggage, clear customs, recheck our luggage and make this flight.


I have my flight from Jacksonville to India through JFK. My JetBlue flight from Jacksonville reaches JFK terminal 4 at 9:20 PM. My connecting flight to Dubai through Emirates is at 11:00 PM from Terminal 5.
Is the transit time of 1 hour 40 minute sufficient to transfer the baggage?
What's the minimum time required to transfer the baggage from JetBlue to Emirates flight?
