Making your way to New York’s airports

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) - The largest airport in NYC is made up of 8 terminals. They are spread far apart, but are connected by the speedy AirTrain. You can actually connect to the AirTrain from the NYC subway and the Long Island Railway, making JFK fairly accessible by public transit.

Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)- It’s technically a New Jersey Airport, but flights from Newark appear in “New York All Airports” searches and it may be more convenient from some parts of the city. You can also often find cheaper tickets to Philadelphia from EWR. The airport consists of three terminals named A, B, and C. To reach the airport from public transportation, you can catch a NJ transit train from New York’s Penn Station to the Newark Airport Train Station, where you can connect with the AirTrain Newark.

LaGuardia Airport (LGA)- A high-volume but fairly manageable airport, LaGuardia has four terminals, named A through D. Usually your best bet is driving or taking a taxi or car service to LGA, as the public transit options are complicated and can be time-consuming, especially with luggage.
