New York City Airports

There are three major airports in that service the NYC area: LaGuardia, JFK and Newark airport. Most major carriers fly into the area including American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta, Continental and British Airways.

John F. Kennedy International Airport

JFK is the main international airport. It is located about 15 miles in Queens. It is fairly simple to get transportation into the city. It’s best to take a cab or a bus into Manhattan. Plan on about an hour. Effective in September, cab rides will cost $52.00 plus tolls and tip. Buses will leave you at Grand Central Terminal.

If you need to rent a car you can catch a shuttle from outside baggage claim to the rental car offices. Although if you are staying in Manhattan we do not recommend renting a car. Car rentals can be rather expensive. Add in the high cost and difficult availability of parking and then the traffic-forget it. We say use public transportation and save yourself the headache.
