History - Construction of the airport began in 1942 with modest ambitions. Only 1,000 acres (4 km²) of land on the site of Idlewild golf course were earmarked for use. The golf course provided the airport's original namesake, Idlewild Airport. First commercial flights began on July 1, 1948. The airport was formally dedicated as New York International Airport on July 31, 1948. It was re-dedicated on December 24, 1963 as John F. Kennedy International Airport, following action of the Mayor and Council of the City of New York, and a resolution of the Commissioners of the Port Authority. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, JFK was one of the first airports in the United States to be temporarily closed.



You can get them at any Hudson News kiosks at JFK Airport.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I was asked to create an overview about the current aviation fuel prices worldwide.
I would be grateful if you could send me the current prices for Jet A1 and AVGAS at the airport.

Best regards
Stefan Polt

Try googling online current fuel prices worldwide.

How many hours before flying from JFK airport should you arrive at the airport?
Is it ok not to check in online and how much time will it take checking in at the airport?
Thank you

2 hours before your scheduled flight.
You can do either/or.
Takes about 45 minutes or so.

I will be arriving from the UK with my family at JFK T3 at 15.40 on 14 July. Our hotel address is 149 E 39th (Murray Hill East Suites). Can you tell me the cheapest/fastest way into Manhattan from T3 JFK and what other options should I consider? Thanks, bobbobbing

i travel from jfk to warsaw via Vienna and will have five golf clubs with me. Can I put them into my luggage or should I have special box, when can I get it in the airport at the check in? Do I face extra costs?

You should put that in a checked in luggage.

If they will fit in your checked luggage you will avoid the possible extra baggage charge. If they won't fit you can put them in a large plastic bag and tape it up well to secure and be sure to place a name/address sticker on it. Some airlines offer large plastic bags for skis, hockey sticks, etc. which you can also use.

Either way as long as you put it as a checked luggage in a luggage or in special box you should be fine.

My daughter will be flying from Orlando on Delta flight 160 next Thursday evening, arriving at 4:07 p.m. She will then be catching an international flight (Delta 8122) to Rome which leaves at 5:20 p.m. How will she get to the international terminal in time to catch her flight to Rome?

Most likely both of her flights will take place at terminal 3. Transiting from one flight to another will require her to walk from arrivals hall to her departing gate.

Im arriving in JFK next week from Manchester UK with a connecting flight through to ATL. Bringing a friend a bottle of duty free. Will I need put into my carry on bag and check it in or am I allowed to take through customs in my carry on.
If I have to check it in what is the process.


It doesnt really matter where you put; you can use your own discretion in this case,however, you still have to report that item to U.S Customs at JFK.

what is xact procedure we need to follow when we depart airplane? where do we pick our dog up from? thanks for any info.
