NY. You have enough time.


I need to know whether we have short-term parking for terminal 8? If so, what is the cost for the same. Otherwise what is the alternate parking for Terminal 8?

Alternate cost is long term parking lot located outside the airport. We do have short term parking for terminal 8. The cost is the same as long as you stay in the short parking lot area.

I'm meeting some friends for lunch during a long layover in Terminal 8. Can you let me know what our dining options are outside security? Thank you!

T7 best subway restaurant I ever had.

i am leaving from Jordan ( RJ ) to JFK in 9th/june and i will arrive at 17:30 in terminal 8 and my next direction to Philadelphia in 20:00 by terminal 3 ....

so .. how much time does it take from terminal 8 to terminal 3 ? and what kind of transportation can i use in order to intended situation ? ( walk .. train ..car ??? )


Air train on track 2. It takes about 2 minutes.

my inlaws are arriving from boston may 28, fight 1807 at 8:50PM, and have a connection to rio de janeiro at 9:30 ( fight 973 ), do they have enough time to get this flight to Rio de janeiro at 9:30 Pm ( 40 minutes between fights?) Thank you very much.

Very tight connection if not impossible.

Hi JFK Specialist,

My parents arrive via Qatar airways at terminal 8 on tuesday. Before immigration and customs, are there stores where they can buy a US cell phone, so they can call me.


Hi Phantom
Unfortunately there are no stores before immigration and customs.

Flying into jfk in July ..family of 5 ..from paris. Will we need to go through customs and security? Arrive at 1:30 pm American airlines...need to get connecting flight to Pittsburgh at 2:50 pm American eagle. Will we have time? Very nervous about this. What is walking distance from aa to ae ? Believe both aa and ae are in terminal 8? Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks : )

You should have enough time as long as your first flight is on time. Yes you will clear Immigration and Customs since you are arriving international. Both flights take place at T8 so yes it is a walking distance of 5 minutes between the gates. No need to clear security again.

my teen is flying alone on comair from jfk to dc. what terminal? how does she get her boarding pass (no chec in bags)? where can i wait with her before she goes thru security and will it be easy for her to get to her gate? thank you so much.

To answer some of your questions, there should be several kiosks next to the lines to check luggage. She can use one and pull up the boarding pass by putting in the confirmation code (should be in the email issued when the tickets were purchased) or by scanning the barcode on the printed confirmation email, if she can bring it with her. At most airports, you can wait with her up until they check her ID and boarding pass and she goes through security. Here is a map of the airport:

It'll help you determine which terminal and she can use it to find her gate if she has trouble. Most airports have helpful signs (and people) though. Hope she has a good trip :)
