Only in America...

Pity the poor visitor to our country arriving from places like Paris, London or Amsterdam, where they've taken a fast train from city center to the airport terminal directly. Nope. Not with us. You have to find an inconvenient AirTrain that takes you to the subway (Howard Beach, A train) or to Jamaica subway/LIRR. The price for this privilege is $7.75 and that does not include the additional $2.75 to enter the subway system. You can easily see how for a family of 4 a cab or Uber/Lyft winds up being a far better option to get you to your New York City destination. The AirTrain itself is an engineering marvel. It's fast and does get you to your terminal. But you will still have a walk from the train stop to your terminal. It's a shame we don't have a single-seat train ride from JFK to anywhere in New York City. While the LIRR may be your fastest option into midtown Manhattan, the subway will be the cheaper and slower but probably better option for getting anywhere beyond the Penn Station area. Oh, and apologies to our international visitors for the deplorable state of affairs once you actually try to pay your fare and actually enter the subway. And while this isn't AirTrain's problem, the moving walkway at Jamaica has been inoperative for months. Why isn't it fixed?

Very reasonable parking
Oct. 2021
This was a great place to park and the cost was very good. But you do have to do a lot of walking to and from the train and to check in or on return exit from whatever airline you fly. So you need to allow some extra time, it is not like a parking facility that drops you off outside departures.

Pleasant ride to JFK airport
Aug. 2021
Sure is a clean, good connection to MTA services like the LIRR and the subway. Happy I got a chance to ride the AirTrain. Just wish I didn't have to pay a little extra for the privlege.

Very poorly marked
Aug. 2021
We arrived on an international flight, made it through customs and walked to the AirTrain. The train is not well marked. Then we got out at T2 and had to walk to the terminal done another poorly marked road. Luckily someone walking with us knew the drill or we may have been wandering around JFK lost.

FAST AND CLEAN

The AirTrain JFK was convenient, safe, fast and clean. He had to pick up a rental car and was able to ride free from the airport to AVIS.

Clean, safe, convenient and fast transportation .
Very easy to use, even with luggage and family.
Easy to access from all terminals and always got a seat.
Glad that it ran in both directions so didn’t have to ride route circle to go back one terminal.

Long walk to the air train. For hotels you must ride the train for 20 minutes in order to wait for and pick up the hotel shuttle

Birthday Weekend

Arrived for my birthday weekend in terminal 8 and rode the air train to terminal 5 in comfort. Easy on and off with clear instructions on what train you were on and where it was going.
