Excellent!!! I have read some awesome reviews on Terminal 5.

Folks love the new Terminal 5 at JFK. This is very good to know because we have a much longer layover on our way home and from what I have read -- we should enjoy our layover time at Terminal 5! :)

Thank you JFK / JetBlue!!! ♥

I will arrive at JFK at 1:50pm at Terminal 5 (Jet Blue). Then I need go to Terminal 1 to catch China Eastern flight at 16:35pm. My questions are:

1. Which airtrain I should take and where?
2. Can I check in my luggage at Terminal 5 or I have to take them with me and check in at Terminal 1. I have two small kids and 70 years old mother with me.

Thank you!!!

1. Take Airtrain on the third floor of T5, on track 2.
2. Double check that with Jet Blue.


On Monday, I am arriving to JFK on a JetBlue flight from Charlotte at 8:06am and connecting to another JetBlue flight in Terminal 5 to Barbados at 9:00am. At what terminal will my flight from Charlotte arrive? Will I have time to make my connection?

Thanks so much!

Everything will take place at T5 - arriving from Charlotte and departing to Barbados. You will have time as long as the inbound flight is not very late.

I am arriving at terminal 5. How do I get to terminal 4 from terminal 5?

Take Airtrain on the third floor of T5 , on track 2 for one stop.

I am flying from Beijing, China by AirChina arriving at 2:20pm on next Monday connecting to JetBlue flight to Orlando at 7pm. Can you advise the best way to timely transfer between the terminals and go through the customs to make the connect less painful? And how much time will it take? Thank you.

You have plenty of time. You will be landing at T1 and need to go to T5. Take Airtrain on the third floor of T1 on ANY track. T5 is three stops away(5 min.)

I am flying from Chicago by JetBlue arriving at 3:39pm on Friday connecting to Aeroflot flight to Moscow at 7pm. As I am traveling with my young kids, can you advise the best way to timely transfer between the terminals and go through the customs to make the connect less painful? Thank you.

After you claim your bags at Terminal 5 , go to the third floor and follow the signs to Airtrain. Take it on track 2 and get off at Terminal 1 - it is 5 min free ride.

I am flying Delta from Montreal to JFK arriving 13:15. Will I have enough time to check in for my Jet Blue flight to Salt Lake departing 14:59? Thank you!

Kind of tight, hope you don't have bags for check-in . Jet Blue might close the check-in for the flight 45min-1hr prior to departure time.

Hi, arrive Jblue at 6:48pm terminal 5, need to going to terminal 7 for Iberia flight departing at 9:00pm. Do I have time to get 2 checked bag from my jet blue flight travel to terminal 7 and make it through security and make my Iberia flight at 9?
Thanks in advance
