Flight connections

Transferring between terminals

For transfers between terminals use the AirTrain which operates between all terminals at JFK as well as to stations that connect to the various New York railroad transportation systems (New York City Subway, Long Island Railroad).

Allow between 60 and 90 minutes to transfer between terminals when connecting due to the time required to clear customs, transfer baggage (where required) and travelling time.

The AirTrain operates in both directions around all terminals at JFK airport. The approximate travel time for a trip around the entire loop, including stops at all terminals, is 8 minutes. That does not include walking time between the airport and AirTrain terminal itself.
