If I park in the short term Yellow lot from tomorrow morning at 8:30am until Sunday night at about 8pm, how much will the parking cost?

has anyone used the premium parking reservation? how does it work?

If I leave my car on Monday morning and pick it up Tuesday evening: which lot do I park it in and how much is it?

quick trip leaving tomorrow back red eye from San Fran early Thursdy morning, want to part closest to terminal for ease of arrival and return.

Where to park? thanks!

I need to get my mother-in-law to a Cathay flight #841 on Saturday May 12th. It departs at 10:05 a.m. What time should we get to JFK Terminal 7 for her to process through security? She needs to check-in at Cathay counter.

We are driving to JFK from Rhode Island.


2 hours before departing flight.


We are flying out of jfk on jetblue and leaving our car in terminal 5, we return on usair in terminal 7. Is it possible to walk from one terminal to the other or do we have to take the airtrain.


You will need to take an air train on track 2 from T7 to T5.

I have to pick up someone at Terminal 1 flying Luftansa Air. I have a Ford Expedition that is about 6' 6" tall. Will it fit in the garage. Does anyone know if the Daily parking garage is tall enough or how tall it is.

If we park Long Term Parking (we are flying Jet Blue, I beleive it is Terminal 5), what are the accomadations to getting us to the airport terminal from there? Do we take the Air Train? Is the Air Train close to the Long Term Parking Lot? Do we need reservations for the Long Term Parking and for the Air Train? Does the Air Train drop us off in front of the terminal or is there a walk? And how much time should we allow from the Long Term Parking Lot and actually arriving at our Terminal? Any help on the above questions will be greatly appreciated!!

You do need to take the air train. There are 2 stations for the air train, one on each side of the long term parking lot. The walk wil depend on how busy it is but is no longer than a shopping mall at busy times. If you have a lot of bags, there is a drop off area before you park. You do not need a reservation for parking. From the air train stop for Jetblue to the terminal is about a 5 minute walk, all in doors and only 1 way (no way to get lost).
It is not difficult at all just leave yourself enough time. Leave yourself about 40 minutes to park the car, catch the train, ride the train and walk to the terminal.

i need to park for 8 hours at JFK. It looks like Long Term Parking you mentioned - $6 for 8 hours would be perfect for me. where exactly is that located (address)? and does the airtrain go directly to the parking lot?

We are flying out of JFK April 21, returning May 1. Do I need to make a reservation to park at the Long-Term parking on Lefferts Blvd.? Thank you

My receipt has been misplaced, can you please advise how I can receive a copy.

Thank You.

I am on crutches, but do not have a handicapped sticker Where should I park for long to fly out of Jetblue?
