JFK is New York's primary international airport and one of five airports operated by The Port
Authority of New York and New Jersey. In the last few years it has made extensive state of the
art improvements to its terminals, roadways and inter-terminal transportation. The airport has
replaced their inter-terminal buses for a light rail transit system that makes for easy
connections to the NYC subways and train systems throughout the tri-state areas of New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut.
JFK is located on Jamaica Bay, in the Borough of Queens, at its southeastern section, and is
only 12 miles from lower Manhattan. It is directly accessible via I-678, the Van Wyck Expwy;
878 Nassau Expwy and the Belt Pkwy.
Annual Passenger traffic is in excess of 49 million people and serves as a hub for American,
Delta, and JetBlue airlines and is served by most national and international airlines,
offering direct and connecting flights to all points on the globe.
