One of the main airports in the New York City area, John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) serves over 50 million passengers a year on over 400,000 flights. With its bustling terminals open 24 hours a day, JFK is the airport you’d expect from the city that never sleeps.
All of its flights and gates are spread across six terminals. The AirTrain runs 24 hours a day between the terminals, making it easy to get around despite the size of the airport.
Each of the airport’s six terminals offers multiple drinking and dining options once you’ve gone through security. These range from major fast-food chains to boutique bars and fine-dining restaurants, including tapas at Piquillo and French cuisine at La Vie.
Get to John F. Kennedy International Airport from New York City by taking the airport’s own AirTrain, which connects to many major subway and bus lines. By car or taxi, expect the drive from downtown to take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour depending on traffic.
