3 hours is plenty of time for a connection.

My sister arrives to Jfk on Aeroflot from Moscow at 5 p.m. and then has a connecting flight at 6:45 p.m. to DFW on Delta. will she have enough time and what steps she has to take? P.S. she doesn't speak English and is traveling with a small child, so most detailed info is very appriciated.

She should be OK as long as her flight is on time. Her first flight will arrive at T1 and second flight will leave from Terminal 2/3 Delta terminal. She will need to clear immigration and security upon entrance to the U.S. She will need to recheck her bags with Delta for her second flight at Terminal 2/3 and clear security there.

how will she get from T1 To T2/3 and if she needs to take an air tran where it is located from customs area in T1? Thanks

3rd floor of terminal 1 just watch the signs. From T1 take an air train on track 2 to T 2/3.

What is the approximate connect time from the furthest end of terminal 2 to terminal 8 assuming you are using the shuttle bus and going through TSA. domestic to domestic

Waiting for the shuttle bus and going through terminal 3-8 takes that amount of time. What about TSA(security) and walking time?

With a ride on an air train. About 30 to 45 minutes.

Around 15 minutes.

I have a two leg trip arriving in terminal 5 and departing from terminal 4 and headed overseas. Will I have to go through security again when transferring between terminal 5 and 4?


I arrive to Terminal 1 and my friend at terminal 4 of JFK at approx. at similiar times. What and where (point of contact) is the best way for us to meet at the airport to leave together toward the Airtrain and the city.
thanks a lot in advance!

Terminal 4 arrivals hall. From T1 take an air train on track 2 to T4.

I arrive at JFK Terminal 8 on American Airlines from London 15:30. I need to get a Jetblue flight 44 at Terminal 5 leaving at 16:59. Will I have enough time to get through customs and get flight on time? Also, I am elderly - is there assistance for elderly people at airport?

You should be OK with your time frame. Ask airport attendents for help with elderly.
