NYC insider flight tips

  • If you’re travelling from a far away city like Vancouver or Calgary, you could save money on your flight to NYC by finding the cheapest flight from your airport to anywhere in the USA. Local budget airlines, such as JetBlue, Southwest and Spirit Airlines can then get you to New York. Some major cities have more than one airport so pay attention to which airport you fly in and out of.
  • If you live close to the US border, it will often be much cheaper to cross the border before flying to any US city. As mentioned above, there are plenty of budget airlines that can fly you from one US city to another.

How to get from the airport

New York’s main airport is JFK and the most economical option to get to NYC is the AirTrain system which runs 24/7 every day of the year. You’ll need to get to Jamaica or Howard Beach Station and change to the subway for NYC. From La Guardia (LGA) take the Q70 or M60 bus to the subway or all the way to the city. Newark Airport (EWR) is a bit further out and has a light rail system to Airport Station which is served by New Jersey Transit for services to New York’s Penn station.

Visitors can buy and top up a MetroCard in advance or on arrival to cover subway and bus fares. If travelling with two or more people, you might save some money by taking a taxi from the airport or booking a private transfer.

Taxi stands are outside the baggage claim area of each airport with dispatchers in uniforms to help you. It’s a flat fee from JFK and takes up to an hour to NYC. La Guardia is closer, taking up to 40 minutes by metered taxi. Be cautious of taxi scams who will overcharge you. NYC Airporter operates shuttle services from and between all three airports to Grand Central, Penn Station or the bus terminal.
