Ultimate Airport Parking Guide

(JFK) John F. Kennedy International Airport

If you're flying to New York, you have a few airport options and JFK is the busiest of the NYC area airports. It's actually the 6th busiest airport in the US and busiest international airport which is fairly obvious if you've ever passed through. There are 6 operating airline terminals, 4 runways and 128 aircraft gates and even features another temrinal exclusively for pets (although this is rumored to be close to shutting down).

Given the high costs of parking in New York City, it is not surprising that parking rates at JFK are some of the most expensive I've seen. If you plan ahead, you may be able to save some money for long term parking.

    Airport parking options at JFK

    There is only one lot if you are looking for on-airport, long-term parking and several short-term garages. There are private lots available for long-term parking but they aren't going to save you much money compared to the closer, airport-owned lot. Hotel lots might be a good choice if you're able to find a good deal through an hotel site.

    On-airport lots

    Economy long-term parking costs $18 / day and short-term rates are $8 - $10 / hour.

    Hotel lots

    Hotel lots allow you to park at nearby hotels and the hotel shuttle takes you to the airport.

    Before using hotel lots, I’d recommend you read more about how these lots work on my guide to airport parking, particularly the section on hotel lots here.

    If you are able to use hotel parking, you may be able to find a great rate. Last I checked, JFK hotel parking ranged from $6 - $30 per day with the best rates found at On Air Parking, Way.com, and instaPark.
