John F. Kennedy International Airport, named after the 35th president of the United States, is New York’s busiest airport serving over 30 million passengers a year.
Kennedy Airport is an international gateway to the United States for both commercial passenger flights as well as freight shipments. Over 80 different airlines serve the airport with domestic as well as international flights. JetBlue Airways runs its operations out of JFK and the airport is also a small hub for American Airlines.
JFK Airport has 8 passenger terminals with 151 gates. The terminals are set up in a circular position with parking, airport hotels, and other airport services in the middle. AirTrain is a high-speed light rail system which conveniently connects the terminals for easier passenger access.
The AirTrain service also takes passengers to other stations to catch another train to somewhere throughout the city. Dealing with traffic around the airport is no longer an issue. The Long Island Rail Road, NYC subway and bus services all serve as transportation options at the airport as well. If you would prefer to rent a vehicle each terminal has rental car counters or courtesy phones to contact a rental agency. Taxi service, as well as shuttle van, and car services are also available from the airport.
