There is no shortage of things to do when you book a flight to New York City. Considered by many to be a mecca of culture and prosperity, New York offers everything a visitor could want from Tony-award winning musicals to the best in fine dining and entertainment.

Stepping off your flight surrounds you in a hotbed for culture and couture. It’s easy to spend a fortune in New York so thankfully cheap flights to New York are easy to come by. Shop till you drop on New York’s famed Park Avenue or 5th Avenue, home of Saks Fifth Avenue department store and some of the country's premier designer shops. If you're in New York during the holiday season make sure to walk by Macy’s Herald Square and enjoy the famous store-front windows that depict a new holiday scene each year. Take a stroll through Greenwich Village where you’ll find artists’ studios and schools. The neighboring village of SoHo (South of Houston Street) is a fashionista’s dream. Boutiques line the streets offering tourists everything from one-of-a-kind jewelry and clothes to warehouse stores stocked with Manolo Blahniks and Jimmy Choo’s. For many business travelers, flights to New York also mean long hours on Wall Street. After a long night at the office, take a turn to Tribeca and enjoy some of the best restaurants New York has to offer. Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, along with Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff, founded the Tribeca Film Festival as a means to revive the economic and cultural stance of Lower Manhattan after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The famous film festival takes place every spring so if your flight falls during this period, make sure to keep your eyes open for Hollywood’s biggest hotshots.

Book a window seat on your flight so you’ll have a perfect view of the Statue of Liberty or the Manhattan skyline. From the air you can see the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and many of Manhattan’s financial district buildings, including Trump Tower and the New York Stock Exchange. Flying over the Statue of Liberty is one thing, but after your flight to New York, hail a cab and head downtown where you can board a ferry to see Lady Liberty up close. New York is a hotbed of history and culture.

Airport Overview

John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is one of the busiest airports in the United States. It is also the first taste of New York City that most passengers get when flying to the United States. The airport is located in Queens and is 12 miles (20km) from Manhattan, where most tourist attractions are located.

JFK Airport is well stocked with every type of amenity a passenger could ask for. There are loads of shops, restaurants and bars at the airport, as well as hotels, parking and public transport facilities. However, busy airports often forget the finer details and JFK is no exception. Passengers may find it less than user-friendly at times, mostly due to its large size, and the enormous volume of passengers filing through on domestic and international flights (more than 46 million each year).

With eight terminals, flights to John F Kennedy International Airport are easy to come by on most major airlines. Passengers booking flights with American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue and Evergreen International Airlines should find it easy to get a flight to JFK Airport as all these airlines use the airport as a regional hub.

John F Kennedy International Airport is not only a gateway to the Big Apple – for many, it is a gateway to the United States. Although big, the airport is well equipped to deal with loads of passengers and using JFK should not be a daunting experience.
