Getting To & From JFK Just Became a Bit Harder for Commuters with System-Wide Overhauls on AirTrain Services Causing Closures

JFK AirTrain users will have to get used to full and partial closures for the month of September and some of October.

Print Email
The JFK AirTrain is one of the easiest ways to get to JFK. While its service can sometimes be hit or miss, on most days the AirTrain is a reliable for frequent fliers. For the next six weeks though, the AirTrain will undergo a complete system-wide overhaul which will lead to partial and complete closures.
 
When the AirTrain system is completely shut down, buses will take fliers from the Jamaica and Howard Beach stations to Federal Circle. There they will be transferred to individual terminals. Buses will then take JFK customers between Federal Circle and Central Terminal area. The buses will stop within the Central Terminal area for partial closures. Customer Care Representatives will be on hand to answer any questions and will help customers reach their destination. Travelers are being advised to leave extra early.
 
The inconvenient AirTrain system-wide overhauls started last Saturday. The next closures will be on Saturday September 14, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. On that day the AirTrain closure will be from Federal Circle to the Central Terminal Area, and the Central Terminal Loop serving all airline terminals.
 
From Sunday September 15 to Thursday September 19, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., there will be full JFK AirTrain closures.
 
On Saturday September 21 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., there will be closures from Federal Circle to the Central Terminal Area, and the Central Terminal Area Loop serving all airline terminals.
 
For the following two days on Saturday September 22 and Monday September 23, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., the AirTrain will see full closures.
 
From Monday September 30 to Friday October 4, between the hours of 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., there will be around-the-clock AirTrain closures from Federal Circle to the Central Terminal Area and the Central Terminal Area Loop serving all airline terminals.
 
The next full October closure will be on Wednesday October 9 from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
 
The last AirTrain closures will be on Wednesday October 16 and Thursday October 17, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.
