i will be at jfk airport this sunday coming up at termanil 1 and it will be my first time at jfk, also traveling alone.. please tell me how to go about getting around the airport at jfk. thanks-

This is an easy airport to find your way around in.


Belt Parkway:
Belt Parkway to the JFK expressway. The JFK expressway circles around the airport to every terminal. Just watch the signs for your terminal number. If there is a lot of traffic and you miss your exit for the terminal that you need, just circle around again.

Long island Expressway:
Take the Van Wyck Expressway and follow the signs to JFK.

By train:
Take the Long Island Rail Road to Jamiaca.
When you get to Jamiaca you will see signs for the AirTrain. From eth platform take the escalator or elevator up to the concourse, and just follow the signs for the AirTrain. The AirTrain runs 24/7 and stops at all airport terminals.

When you get to your terminal just walk up to the counter and check in.

I prefer taking the train! You never know what the traffic is going to be like in the NYC metro area is going to be like. And the last thing you want is to arrive late at the airport. I suggest not driving alone and parking your car at the airport as you will come back to a very expensive parking bill!

Oh just one more thing... If you have a lot of suitcases and stuff, you may prefer to take a shuttle bus from the city.. or if your coming from the island call an airport shuttle like "Hampton Coach" etc.

Hope this helps.

Dear Sir/Madam,

How many hours ahead of take-off schedule does the boarding pass change start?

I'm taking my new born child with China Eastern MU588 by 2/12, and I need to book my seats next to the cradle on the airplane. So my boarding pass is expected to be changed as early as possible.

MU588 takes off by 15:35, would I be able to get my boarding pass by 12:35?

Thanks a lot.



I traveled into JFK on Aeromexico last Friday. I just realised I left behind something in the overhead bin. Is there a lost and found facility, or where would that have gone? It is a pair of trousers

Hi ,
my wife & i , will arrive to JFK terminal 1 by Saudi airlines at 09:00 a.m. and my next flight to Orlando by Jetblue airways at terminal 5 , my question is

Is that enough time to get to terminal 5 ?
How can we get to terminal 5 ?


Take an air train on track 2 from terminal 1 to terminal 5. You have lots of time.

Sorry ,
I forgot to mention that my next trip to Orlando by jetblue airways will be at 2:59 p.m.


Yes you have more than enough time.

Hello -

I am flying today with Aeroflot from Terminal 1 with a luggage that has broken. Is there luggage wrapping service available on Terminal 1? If so, where exactly is it located and how much would it cost? Would appreciate a prompt response. THANK YOU!!

Yes, there are two stations on each side of terminal one, next to entrance doors. Service cost $9.00 for regular luggage and $12.00 for oversize bag, but be prepared to pay $12.00 for each bag anyway, it what I paid last time I used them.

Hope this helps.

my parents are flying with aeroflot SU315, arrival on 17. March, 6 pm and me and my husband are flying with AirFrance, AF0010, arrival on the same date, 1 hour later. I am a little bit worried for my parents, because they do not speak English, so it will be difficult for them to go throught the passport control. Is it possible we can go together? 'cause we are going to stay in US anyway altogether for the whole time...

yes, if you are arriving at the same terminal -- which I think you will (both at T1). You are not forced to go through immigration right away. Your parents can wait for you just outside the line, where people are filling out forms. The only issue is your plane is delayed. Using mobile phones is in principle not permitted in this area but if you are not yet in line I imagine no one would complain too much, so you could call them if they have a US mobile phone. Unfortuntely they'd have no way of knowing if your plane is delayed, there is no arrival information in that area.

It is possible but unlikely to happen as both of you have different arriving times.

Hi, thanks a lot for the reply. But I couldn't really understand: so would it be possible for my parents to wait before the passport control or not? Could they wait before going in line?
