Logo   AirTrain to JFK Airport, New York City
AirTrain JFK links the Long Island Rail Road's Jamaica station with all nine terminals at John F Kennedy International Airport—the best way to travel from Manhattan to JFK.  




AirTrain JFK allows you to float above the massive traffic jams on the ground beneath the elevated railway as you make your way between Manhattan and John F Kennedy International Airport (map).

AirTrain JFK is operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the same organization that operates JFK, LaGuardia and Newark Liberty airports and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Coming from Manhattan, go to Penn Station, buy a MetroCard ticket with enough value to get you all the way to the airport (about $10: ask the ticket-seller) and board a Long Island Rail Road train going to Jamaica station (most of them do).

At Jamaica, follow the signs to the Airtrain JFK boarding area, use your MetroCard to pass through the turnstile, and walk aboard.

AirTrains operate 24 hours a day, every day, departing every two to 12 minutes, depending upon the number of passengers anticipated.

The AirTrain will take you right to your terminal at JFK in only a few minutes. AirTrains also stop at the car rental facilities, hotel shuttle stops, and airport parking lots. It is free of charge within the airport.

Be sure to look down at the clogged roads beneath the elevated train to see what your missing.
