T4 Tip

T4 Tip

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.

With ongoing roadway construction at JFK Airport, your journey may have significant delays.

We recommend our T4 guests to allow some extra time to reach the terminal. Travelers are also encouraged to pre-book parking 48 hours in advance to guarantee parking and avoid the surcharge by clicking here. Alternatively, parking is available at Federal Circle, and take a transfer from there to T4 with the AirTrain.

Worried about long lines at security?

With Reserve powered by CLEAR, you can save your spot ahead of time and avoid the wait. No checked-in bag? You may go directly to the TSA checkpoint at level 1, on the east of the terminal.
