John F. Kennedy International Airport is an international airport located in Jamaica, Queens, southeast of New York City.

IATA code - JFK

ICAO code - KJFK

Operated by - The airport has been operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey under a lease with New York City since 1947.

Time Zone - EST (GMT -5)

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.

Both flights are at terminal 3. Make sure you have all bags clipped to final destination and make sure you have all your boarding passes ready with you. This is a very tight connection as any delay may cut you loose. JFK_Specialist

I am supposed to be returning from South Africa Airlines at approx 8:30 am on 20 Oct 2011. I need to connect to an 11:05 flight to DCA. Will I have enough time to go through customs?

2-1/2 hours should be sufficient time provided you are not delayed on arrival.


I have to spend over 5 hours in airport and would like to rent a children trolley for that time. Is it available in JFK airport and how much does it cost?
