I have parked there during Christmas, Thanksgiving, and a few other Holidays and have never had a problem. If you have never been there the lot is probably the size of 30 or more football fields. The only other advice I could give you is if your going to park in the long term lot give your self ample time (like 1-1/2 hours min before the flight is scheduled to leave). It takes a good 30 minutes to get to your terminal by the airtran if it is a long haul like jet blue. Have safe travels I might be parked right next to you.

why don't you list the exact address for the JFK official long term parking lot so i can put it into my GPS - all it says is Lefferts Blvd.

If your one the Van Dyke it is the exit for JFK, However you cant miss the signs to get there. It will look like you are going the wrong way but if the air train appears on your right side for about a mile your doing good. When you cant go any more take a left, and then a quick right, now your in the lot. Best of Luck, Joe.

Is the 18$/day rate measured per 24 hour day or per calendar day? For example - If I park in the lot tonight at 8pm and return at 8pm Sunday night this is 3 - 24 hour periods, i.e. 3 x $18 = $54. Or do they count this as 4 days since I came in on a Thurs and left on a Sunday?

The off site parking lots (not associated with jfk) all seem to count days as calendar days so for the example above they are quoting me as 4 days. It seems like the JFK lot might actually work out cheaper if they count hours.

Anyone know?

It's $18 up to 24 hours, then $6 for each 8 hour period over the first 24 hours. So if you park for 1.5 days it's $18 for the first 24 hours and then $12 for the .5 day.

If i need to park at JFK for ten days, what is my most reasonable option? Are there both onsite and offsite long term parking options and what are the cons of the offsite parking lots?


There are offsite parking lots but shuttle service to/from terminals is sketchy at best. The long term lot at JFK is $18/day, located at Lefferts Blvd. near the AirTrain station, take AirTrain to/from terminals.

Hey everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone could answer how much it is to park at JFK with an employee pass (I am about to begin working at JetBlue) and was curious how much a monthly pass is. I will be spending most of my time at the Queens Blvd location, but was just curious!

Thanks so much for your help


Check with Jet Blue about employee parking. There's probably a special monthly or yearly rate for employees as well as a designated employee lot.

I'm flying JetBlue Friday Night to Monday afternoon.. what is the closest long term parking.

There is only one long term parking lot located near Lefferts Blvd. There's an AirTrain station there which will take you to terminals, Jet Blue is T5.

Planning on leaving my car at jetblue short term parking. I know they are not responsible for damages or theft but whats their track record been like as far as safety goes? have they had many issues? Thanks

Pls suggest the best place to park the car in JFK airport from Friday evening 5 to Monday midnight

Thank you.

It's up to you; short term parking is closer to terminal but more expensive ($33/day) than long term parking ($18/day) which requires a ride on AirTrain.

Does anyone know if there are any additional taxes or fees in addition to the $18 per day?
