John F. Kennedy International Airport

Welcome to John F. Kennedy International Airport! The primary airport in New York City and one of the busiest International airports in the United States. More then 90 different airlines fly in and out of JFK and is the operating center for both American Airlines and Delta Airlines. Despite being one of the busiest airports in the country it is not easy to travel their via public transit, only bus lines are able to access JFK. However you’ll be glad to know that their are many car service companies in the city that can take you to or from the airport easily.

John F Kennedy Airport was originally called the New York International Airport, though it was often referred to as the Idlewild airport. This was largely due to the land being previously used by the Idlewild Beach Golf Course. Today it’s packed with taxi‘s heading to the airport.

JFK has half a dozen terminals and contains over 130 gates. The terminals are set up in almost a U shape though it still remains with a wavy pattern around the central area that contains the airports parking. Normally finding parking in JFK can be a problem so it’s often good to have a driver taking you to the airport. Before the 1990’s every single terminal at JFK was known for the primary airlines that they served. the one exception of this was terminal 4 which was known as the International Arrivals Buildings.

Terminal 1 was opened in 1998 and had been here for 50 years after the opening of JFK. The terminal is known for operating with many carriers and the primary four being: Air France, Japan Airlines, Korean Air and Lufthansa. Terminal 1 also operates with carriers: Aeroflot, Alitalia, China Eastern Airlines, Air China, Turkish Airlines, Austrian Airlines and many more. Terminal 1 is also lined with small businesses for when you’re waiting for your section to be called. Currently, Terminal 1 is being renovated to create more space for more small local businesses. there are also plans to upgrade the terminal to include more cutting-edge technology and more amenities. It’ll also make it more accessible to people with disabilities for whenever they are being picked up or dropped off by transportation companies.

Terminal 2 opened in 1962 and was the home of Northeast Airlines, Braniff and, Northwest. The terminal was exclusively used and operated by Delta Airlines. Terminal 2 is actually being used less and less thanks to the opening of Terminal 4 and the renovation of Terminal 1 into the New Terminal One. Terminal 2 is set to be demolished by 2026.

Terminal 4 was developed by LCOR Inc. and is managed by the JFK International Air Terminal. The terminal includes different operators such as SkyTeam, Star Alliance ,and even non alliance carriers such as Air Serbia, Caribbean Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Eastern Airlines, EI AI, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Hainan Airlines, Jet Blue, Kuwait Airway, LATAM Brasil, LATAM Chile, Uzbekistan Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Volaris, and WestJet.

Terminal 4 was opened in 2001 and was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. It was built during the construction of the AirTrain with the AirTrain station being built inside the Terminal. the construction of the Air Train was meant to make Terminal 4 easy to navigate however it had the opposite effect.

Today the terminal is filled with shops, dining and even activities to relax, they also offer Wi-Fi and kiosks for easier navigation. Terminal 4 is one of JFK Airport‘s busiest terminal, with over 40,000 flyers coming in and out daily. This is sadly causing congestion among parking lots in the airport, with terminal 4‘s parking adding extra fees. If you’re planning on taking a car to the airport then you may want to get a limo service to avoid parking fees.
