One of the busiest airports in the world, John F. Kennedy International (JKF) is the gateway to the Big Apple and all its glory. Operated by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, JFK has eight terminals with a free air train connecting them. Major projects have included the Bay Runway, built under the Port Authority’s Environmental Initiatives program which encapsulates the airline’s determination to improve their level of service while addressing its impact on climate, air quality, energy and ecosystems. The airport strives to be an environmental steward in sustainability.
New York City is of course one of the most popular destinations in the world with a list of sites too amazing to number here. It may be a 20 minute drive to Manhattan via cheap car rental, but JFK is also a hop, skip and jump from Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island. Not to mention it sits in Queens, home of the Museum of the Moving Image, the New Africa Center, Citifield and Kingsland Homestead.
12 miles from Lower Manhattan, JFK International Airport is located in Queens County on Long Island. It is one of the busiest international air transit gateways in the United States. There are more than 90 airlines servicing this airport.
Transportation: If JFK is your final destination then you have many options from which to choose for ground transportation. If you decide to rent a cheap car, there are many independent car rental agencies serving JFK.
