Considering it is one of the world’s most used airports, it’s not that easy to get to. And it sure as hell isn’t cheap. I thought I was saving money when I went to long term parking on a recent trip. Turns out it was about the same as a round trip cab fare from Park Slope. $102! So, if you’re cheap like me, consider this:
The A Train to Howard Beach-JFK. Then get on the Air Train for an additional $8.00. Total cost-approximately $11 each way. Allow an extra 30 minutes from the Howard Beach station to the terminal.
Same deal with the E, J, or Z trains to Sutphin Boulevard/Archer Avenue/JFK Airport stop. The Air Train stop is Jamaica. Again, allow 30 minutes from there to get to terminal. About $11 each way.
