- The ARK at JFK is perfect for travelers with pets. The ARK is an animal care facility that aims to bring first class flying service to all of our four-legged friends. They offer services such as animal care throughout the pre- and post-flight experience as well as equine import/export.
- The AirTrain offers an easy and cheap way to get to, from, and around JFK International Airport. You can easily reach JFK by connecting to the AirTrain via the E, A, J, and Z subway lines in downtown NYC. Additionally, it provides quick transportation between any of the airport terminals for free.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
