    Any time I find myself here, I'm rather proud because I just saved cab fare and I'm not running scary late.

    Huge AirPort but everything is easy to find your way!

    The train goes to Terminal 1 first; if you're going to Terminal 8 or 7, hop off at T1 and cross to the other line in the other direction.

    Great way to get to JFK. saves you about $50 but it does take about 30 mins longer than a taxi.

    Irma Zandl · November 15, 2014
  • Kimmie O.

    You pay the $5 fee when you exit

    Kimmie Ohh · October 12, 2014

    Cheapest way to get to JFK and as long as there is no track work, you can estimate door to door commute time most accurately with this

    The BEST way to get to JFK. Take the LIRR from Penn to Jamaica and take the AirTran right to your terminal for $13.25 in about an hour. Free between terminals.

    Entering or leaving the system at the Jamaica or Howard Beach stations costs $5

    I take a $6 taxi from my house to 7th Ave/53rd st E train stop, use my metro card for the subway $2.50 take the E uptown and queens to Sutphin Blvd. and take the airtrain $5 and it only takes an hour!

    Faster than LGA by car during medium to heavy traffic

    Andrew Reese · October 18, 2013
  • Julien G.

    The train goes to terminal 1 and then 2. Terminal 8 will be the last stop. Switch to the other track at terminal 1 for faster access to terminal 8. Time is money :D

    Julien G. · October 9, 2013
  • Anthony L.

    AirTrain is supposed to run every 7 minutes. But it actually runs every 15 minutes... Budget extra time!

    Anthony Laudato · September 19, 2013
  • Gordon Z.

    The ride is super smooth. Fare is $5.00 and uses the MTA MetroCard

    Gordon Zheng · September 16, 2013
  • Tanika M.

    LIRR from Brooklyn to JFK is 22 minutes and $4 (weekend City ticket). Fastest, cheapest option. (Subway is 60 min + and cab is $50+)

    Tanika McKelvy · August 24, 2013
  • Keith G.

    Get your ticket before you get on train, it's way cheaper

    Keith Giddings · July 19, 2013
  • Michael M.

    Plan at least 23 minutes under the new, painfully less frequent schedule to get from Jamaica to Terminal 1.

    Michael Moses · July 6, 2013

    Before your flight you need to visit Air Bar.

    Robert Osano · June 23, 2013

    Power outlets and USB power outlets can be found in the Upper Concourse at 2 of the 3 trianglar shaped info kiosks.

    Watch your surroundings...this is South Jamaica Queens ...They don't play fair!!!

    Celina Crump · May 21, 2013
  • Jordan C.

    Be prepared to pay $5 extra bucks to either leave or get on the AirTrain. So stupid.

    Be careful of all the homless people that hang around there who scream and curse you out that security seems to refuse to get rid of.

  • Alexander C.

    Beware you can't smoke even if it's 10° and your train is two hours late. Smdh

    Just paid 2 bucks for bad coffee so I can sit on the nice side while waiting for the LIRR.

    Super quick. Way better than a taxi or town car. Save yourself and your company the money and time.

  • April

    Best way to get to JFK. 30 mins off peak is less than $12

    DO NOT give your unlimited/weekly passes away to the people who ask for them. They turn & sell them to make quick booze/drug bucks. It's a real problem in the elevators & now, even on subway level.

    Frequent fliers, get the 10-trip Airtrain Metrocard for $25 and save 50%! Just use within one year. Fastest way to JFK? LIRR from Penn Station to Jamaica.
