I can not find my parking ticket for the short term lot at Terminal 8. What is the procedure for paying without a ticket? Thanks.

You will pay full amount. I know I have when I lost my ticket!

They can figure it out from your license plate when you leave the parking lot.

Does JFK have a cell phone waiting area?

Yes they do in each arrival hall at JFK.


Hi I was travelling on 12/26/2011 flight leave at 1:37 pm and arrives 1/2/2012 at 8:30 am. I was wondering about the long term parking. Is there a shuttle that picks us up and drops us at the terminal? How often do they come around. Thank you Lucy

Can you tell me if the online reserved parking at jfk in terminal 5 is legitimate. I saw it on a port authority web site.


It is on the PA site and is legit. Reserve space in short term lots, cost is $5 to reserve plus parking fees.

My car will be at the airport for about 18 hours. Is that considered short term or long term parking. Please advise so I know where to park.

It all depends on where you park. The lot across from the terminal is the short term lot and costs $33 per day, the lot out near Lefferts Blvd is the long term lot and costs $18 per day.

How much does it cost per day to park in JFK's Terminal 5 short term parking including tax? Is a reservation needed?

$33 per 24 hour period, no reservations.

Does long term parking require reservations? How much time should be alloted for air train service from JFK long term parking to Terminal 5?
