Private Jet Flights to JFK: John F. Kennedy Intl Airport - New York, NY

JFK Private Jet Charter Flights to John F. Kennedy Intl Airport

John F. Kennedy Intl Airport Overview

JFK airport is classic New York. It is packed with passengers, with countless places to dine (including a Shake Shack, for the burger enthusiasts), shop, and explore while bumping shoulders with those in a hurry to get to their next destination. It is a useful place to catch commercial aircraft, but it is not necessarily the best choice for a NYC private charter.
John F. Kennedy Airport is located in Queens, close to Brooklyn and about 19 miles from Manhattan. It is the busiest airport in New York by a substantial margin, with twice as many passengers as LaGuardia. Part of that is personal preference, as for commercial aircraft, Kennedy Airport has always been the preferred choice as it is newer and has more amenities.

But it is that same demand that makes it less hospital for private jet travel. For those that do need to book a JFK private aircraft:

  • There is only one FBO with higher jet fuel costs.
  • There are few jets housed at the airport itself.
  • There are often long wait times for takeoff and landing.

There are still a few perks to chartering a private aircraft to JFK. For example, John F. Kennedy International Airport has one of the only “luxury terminals for pets” in the entire United States, called “The ARK” where pets are treated as though they are VIPs. The amount of shopping and dining options in the airport are also some of the best in any airport that serves New York.

But for most business jets and personal aircraft charters, alternatives such as:

  • Francis S Gabreski Airport
  • Republic Airport
  • Westchester County Airport
  • Teterboro Airport

These all tend to offer more luxury experiences and better overall private aviation service. No matter which airport you choose, contact evoJets today.
