John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the major international airport servicing the New York area. Located in Jamaica, Queens, it is within fast and easy proximity to Long Island area attractions and hotels. JFK has seven operating airline terminals, surrounded by a dual ring of peripheral taxiways. More than 125 aircraft gates serve the terminals. The high-speed, light-rail AirTran service links the airport to New York City and beyond. Opened in December 2003, AirTrain connects to the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and the New York City subway and bus lines.
