I am traveling from LAX to Rome via JFK. I arrive in Terminal 2, then must transfer to Terminal 1 for the second leg of the flight. Can you please tell me how long it will take to get from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1? What are my travel options? Will I need to go through security? How long do you estimate the entire transfer will take? I am traveling on a Friday.

Thank you very much.

Hello there!
Its a very simple process. Use air train at terminal 2 on any track. It will take you between 5 and 10 minutes to transfer over to terminal 1. You will go through security at terminal 1 prior to your first flight to Rome Italy. You dont have to walk outside just use air train to transfer between. The entire process from arriving at JFK, going on the air train and clearing security might take you up to an hour.

I don't know what kind of "Specialist" you are but if you have ever been at JFK you will know that for passengers to transfer from T2 via airtrain , they MUST go outside,cross the streets into the parking lot and take the elevator to the Airtrain platform. That distance is almost the same(if not longer) as the straight walk from T2 to T1.
As the other people on this board said - why you, JFK_"Specialist" , won't stop misinforming passengers?

Well you dont know then I will tell you. He is a Specialist in providing many good answers to folks` questions and he is Specialist in providing friendly and polite service. Why cant Jake W stop bullying nice folks who are here to help others? This is not a place to do that brother.

Let's leave the people to judge which answer is right!

Right and lets stop Jake W manipulating people.

We arrive from Rome to JFK Terminal_1 (Alitalia flight), and we have 1h,30' to transfer to Terminal_3 DELTA flight to Atlanta; my questions are:
- do we have to withdraw bagages and check them in again at Terminal_3 (flight connection for Atlanta) ?
- do we have to custom at JFK even in case of flight connection to Atlanta ?
- how to get from Terminal_1 to Terminal_3 (Delta Airlines)? By walk (and how long) or by air train ?
Thank you in advance

1. Yes you do and you have to recheck them again.
2. Yes you will have to go through Customs and recheck your bags.
3. Use air train on the 3rd floor of terminal 1 to transfer over to terminal 3. It will take you 5 to 10 minutes at most. No need to walk when you have a free air train.

Our daughter is flying Delta and we are flying Jetblue to JFK. We both have 2-3 hr. layovers. How can we meet up during our wait there. Thank you.

Terminal 5 arrivals like I mentioned in the previous comment.

JetBlue arrives and departs from terminal 5. Delta arrives and departs out of 2,3 and 4 so meet up at terminal 5 arrivals. Use free air train to transfer between the terminals.

How much time it takes from terminal 2 to terminal 3.
Is there some connected way to walk or is it necessary to take some bus or taxi?

From my work experience I know that both terminals are connected together past security. Walkable and fast distance of about 5 to 10 minutes at most.

I arrived at JFK yesterday for flight 95 to Salt Lake City at 3:35. I was pulled aside and brought to the front desk to find out if my flight was still going out. They told me that flight 95 to SLC was cancelled and to go home and call Delta to reschedule. Today I tried calling and got no answer because of the weather conditions, and I found on their website that my flight actually did go out at 4:30 yesterday... I am really worried that I could have gotten on my flight had this woman not told me it was cancelled and to go home. Any help, please??

If you are so worried just give them a call. It wont hurt and you have nothing to lose.
