General airport info
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.
Economy long-term parking costs $18 / day and short-term rates are $8 - $10 / hour.
3rd party lots
There are a few private lots ranging from $16 - $18 / day.
There are several hotel lots available ranging from $6 - $30 / day.
Airport owned & operated lots
Key takeaways for JFK airport lots
- Your only option for on-airport, long-term is the Economy Lot but you may be able to find a cheaper rate through a hotel or third-party lot.

- Cell phone lot waiting areas located at each of the airport entrances located off the Van Wyck Expressway and the JFK Expressway.

Privately owned & operated 3rd party lots
There are three privately owned lots to choose from but they aren't that much cheaper than the Economy lot owned by JFK. You'll pay $16 - $18 per day if you choose one of these lots.
Hotel lots allow you to park at nearby hotels and the hotel shuttle takes you to the airport.
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.
