This will impact the AirTrain JFK system from Federal Circle to the Central Terminal Area

Free shuttle bus service will be provided to minimize impact on travelers

This weekend, AirTrain JFK will have a partial shutdown beginning Friday, March 15, from 10 p.m. through Saturday, March 16, at 10 a.m. The partial shutdown is for scheduled maintenance of the AirTrain system from Federal Circle to the Central Terminal Area.

AirTrain service will continue to operate normally from Federal Circle to Howard Beach and Lefferts Boulevard stations, and Jamaica Station. Travelers and airport employees are advised to allow extra time when traveling to and from John F. Kennedy Airport during the service modification.

Additional AirTrain agents, Customer Care representatives, and other Port Authority staff will be available throughout the AirTrain system to provide assistance and information to travelers.
