J.F.K. International Airport, New York, USA

New York John F Kennedy Airport, often referred to simply as JFK, is one of three airports serving the Big Apple, along with La Guardia and Newark. JFK is the fifth busiest airport in the USA, although it's the busiest in terms of international passengers.


JFK has six terminals, numbered one through eight, with gaps for Terminal 3 and Terminal 6 which no longer exist. These terminals are laid out in a rough U-shape, and are all connected by an AirTrain service.


Terminal 1 was originally built to satisfy the demands of Air France, Japan Air, Korean Air and Lufthansa, especially in regards to A380 operations. This quartet has since been joined by other airlines, with most flights from Terminal 1 connecting the States to Europe. 


Terminal 2 is used solely for Delta flights, but be aware that some Delta flights also leave from Terminal 4.


As well as Delta's international flights, Terminal 4 is used by a number of airlines for Airbus A380 flights, as well as members of SkyTeam and Star Alliance for general flights.


Terminal 5 was originally used only by JetBlue, but has since expanded to let in other airlines. Almost all flights from here stay in the Americas, with the exception of Aer Lingus who use this terminal for flights to Ireland.


British Airways and other members of the Oneworld alliance (such as Cathay Pacific and Qantas) are the primary airlines in Terminal 7, however some Star Alliance members fly from here too.


Other members of the Oneworld alliance fly out of Terminal 8, including Air Berlin and Finnair. This terminal is also the major base for American Airlines.

Some taxi drivers try to approach passengers in the terminal. As in all parts of the world, this is discouraged, but if you want to skip the taxi queue you can choose to take them up on their offer. Be sure to arrange a price up front.
