Traveling with a baby? If you prefer to nurse in privacy, the Mothers Room in the Retail Lounge offers all the comfort you and your little one need.

Please note the demand for parking on the airport has increased significantly.

For customers who have not pre-booked a parking spot, a new summer peak “drive-up” parking surcharge goes into effect on July 15 to manage on-airport demand. Rates will not change for customers who pre-book.

Travelers are encouraged to pre-book parking 48 hours in advance to guarantee parking and avoid the surcharge. To pre-book parking please head to the JFK Airport Website under the “Book Parking & Parking Availability” section.
