Flights to New York John F Kennedy

Flights to New York John F. Kennedy Airport connect you to one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Previously known as New York International Airport, JFK Airport operates with two pairs of parallel runways and six terminals.

Ranked as the 17th largest airport in the world, it welcomes more than 55 million passengers per year.

Located in Queens, John F. Kennedy Airport is about 45 minutes from midtown Manhattan. You can reach the airport by car and public transport. Take the AirTrain if you’re keen on using public transport to get there. Though it’s faster and more convenient to travel by car, make sure to book your cab or car rental early to snag a good deal.

Within the airport you can get from one terminal to the other by taking the AirTrain – the train takes about eight minutes to complete one loop of all the terminals.

Terminals 1, 4 and 5 cater to a good mix of domestic and international airlines, including Emirates. Terminal 2 exclusively services Delta flights.

Whether you’ve just arrived, are in transit or have some time to spare before your flight, JFK Airport offers you ample opportunity to shop, dine and relax. Terminal 4 caters to all appetites and palates. You can find everything from family diners to five-star dining by celebrity chefs. Grab a slice of New York-style pizza before your flight, or rev up with a cup of joe from one of the many coffee shops. You can also enjoy complimentary access to the Emirates Lounge located in Terminal 4 if you’re flying First Class or Business Class with Emirates.

Emirates operates weekly flights between Dubai International (DXB) and John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
