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.



Your bags should be clipped to your final destination but it wont hurt to ask just in case.

How long does it take to go from JFK to New Jersey Airport ? Is there a shuttle bus to there ? How much ?

Yes there are buses and shuttles that will take you there to Newark airport. Once you land inquire at GTD for a shuttle or a bus to Newark.

Hi I just booking Howard Johnson Hotel Jamaica JKF, how can I get there from JFK, is there shuttle ?

I am flying out of Terminal 4 on 4/1, flight# SQ025 at 8:35 PM. Meanwhile, my friend is flying from Denver on flight #DL1312 at 5:27 PM also on 4/1. Is there a chance his Delta flight lands in terminal 4 so that we can meet there? Please let me know. Thank you.

It will most likely land at terminal 2/3 so you can meet there. From T4 take any train on track 2 to terminal 2/3.

Is there a place where I can use official computer to browse the internet and print some documents?
I would appreciate some help!
Thank you


I am meeting Delta Flight 127 Madrid, Spain to JFK on 4/2/2012. There will be several Spanish rescue dogs coming as checked baggage with a passenger on the flight. Where can I expect the dogs to actually arrive (Delta Baggage counter in the terminal ??) I would appreciate that info.


They should come out from Delta Baggage Counter. Thats my guess.

What is the best way to get from JFK to Long Island? The flight is at 23.30 and we are 6 adults. Thank you.

Best way is by a venn. For 6 people inquire at GTD at JFK airport.

Is there a hairdresser salon in the airport?
