I'm travelling from ATL to HYDERABAD and have a Emirates connecting flight from JFK. I land in Terminal 2 and need to take the emirates flight from Terminal 4. Is there another security check between Terminal 2 and Terminal 4.
If i need to take a boarding pass for my Emirates flights, is there any KIOSK near terminal 2 or Terminal 4.

Dear JFK specialist,
My wife, daughter amnd myslef will be arriving on Saturday from London with BA at terminal 7, while our 17 year old son will arrive 2 hours later from Amterdam with KLM at terminal 4, and we would like to agree on a meeting point at terminal 4, if possible before the passport control in case our son has some problem due to arriving alone. Do we have to wait for him at the arrival hall or is there a better way to avoid problems at the passport control?

Best regards,


Hi Anders, In my opinion, after you get off your flight from London, You should meet your son at the International Arrivals hall at Terminal 4. I don't think there will be much of a problem as long as yours and his flight is on time. Just the Arrivals board in Terminal 4.

Glad to help!

We are leaving toronto and arriving at LaGuardia @ 7PM Leaving JFK #4 @ 10:50 for Abu Dhabi, our Daughter is @ NYU there, we are a bit worried about the transfer time.

Hello JFK Specialist!
I will fly to LA through NY in the next June. I'll come from Budapest, Hungary, and I have to wait 5h 20 min the next flight. My question is: should I try to get NYC and see something, or I should wait in the JFK? I'm from Hungary!

Five hours is not enough time to leave the airport for sightseeing, stay at the airport between flights.
