My husband is arriving at JFK T1 and I am arriving at JFK T3 20 min later from London.

b/ Where is best to meet at T3?
Thank you

hi how r u just 1 should stay on the terminal and 1 should travel to t 1 or 3 by train it free and v fast just fellow the sign

1. Take an air train on track 2 from T1 to T3 it takes about 2 minutes.
2. T3 arrivals hall.

I will fly from helsinki to JFK, arrived at 13:30 in terminal 8. In the same day, my mother will take flight CA981, from Beijing to JFK, arrived at 14:20 in terminal 1. Her english is poor, so I have to help her pass customs. So, how could I do this? (we are both Chinese and hold b type visa).

I am arriving at JFK next week at terminal 1 and will need to go to terminal 3 for my connection flight.where do I go to catch the air train and what train track I should take for transferring from terminal 1 to terminal 3

Thank you for your response

Air train on track 2 only. Air train is located on the 3rd floor of terminal 1 at JFK.

My parents are flying from Moscow to seattle via JFK.they will need to change terminals (from terminal 1 to terminal 3 ). They also need to recheck baggage after customs. They need do not speak English, so I need to give them instructions on how to do it. Could you tell me what they need to do?
Thank you very much

Once they get off the plane they need to clear immigration and customs and then recheck their bags for their second flight. From terminal 1 tell them to take an air train on track 2 to terminal 3.

hi, my flight is from kiev to miami with connection in jfk. Im arriving at Jfk on a friday at 5:00pm on Aeroflot and then my next flight is at 7:00 pm with Delta. With me is a Ukranian citizen who has proper documents but has never been to the US. before. Is 2 hours enough to catch our next flight?


2 hours is perfectly good time frame and enough for you to make that connection.

I’m arriving to T1 on Saudi Airlines @ 11:30 AM and have domestic flight departures from T5 on 2:13 PM. What the faster way to transfer between these terminals and how long it takes?
Do I have enough time to catch my flight ?

Yes you have plenty of time to connect. From T1 take any train on track 2 to T5. It takes about 2 minutes.

Hi, I will be arriving at JFK Terminal 1 on Saturday at 11am on Singapore Airlines.

I would need to take a domestic flight to Buffalo and I cannot through checked my luggage (meaning I need to clear customs, pick up my luggage and move over to Terminal 5 and check in the luggage again). Do I have sufficient time if I choose a 1425H Jetblue flight at Terminal 5?

Or should I take a later flight? If so, what is the timing I should be looking at?


3 and a half hours is enough for your connection.

Hi !
My plane arrives from Moscow at 5pm at term 1, and then I need to reach term 8 where my other plane leavs to LA at 7pm.

Will it be enough time for me to pass the passport control and custom clearence at term 1, catch AirTrain, get to term 8 and not to miss my plane?

Do I need to buy a ticket for Ait Train between T1 and T8 or just go to the train directly?

And do I need time for passport control when flying from NY to LA or just check-in? If I do on-lone check-in may I go from Air Train directly to my gate?

Thanks in advance.
