John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
Jamaica, New York City, 11430
New York City traffic is nothing to joke about, so avoid the stress of navigating your own way to and from the airport by booking an airport transfer. Shared transfers by van offer pickup and drop-off at Manhattan hotels, while a private transfer by sedan or SUV provides a more luxurious and flexible experience with Brooklyn service options as well. It’s also possible to book a skip-the-line airport transfer to avoid having to wait at the curb for your ride or—for a VIP experience—book a helicopter transfer option that'll take you the airport straight to Lower Manhattan.
