- John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the primary airport servicing New York City and is the largest in the area; however, for travellers looking to stay near New Jersey, in areas such as Lower Manhattan or Staten Island, it is worth looking for flights into Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). While the airport is much smaller and can therefore accommodate less traffic, it is located closer to these areas than JFK Airport and can offer shorter drive times.
- For travellers who are able to drive and are seeking to explore nearby American cities such as Philadelphia, it is generally advisable to fly into JFK Airport rather than Newark Airport or other surrounding airports; JFK Airport is the primary airport in the area and able to accommodate a greater volume of flights.
- For travellers with an early flight out of Sydney and looking to find a hotel nearby, we suggest staying at the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel. Located across from the International Terminal at Sydney Airport, the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel is brilliant for anyone not wanting to worry about the journey to the airport.
- If you plan on driving to Sydney Airport, make sure to park in car park P7. This dedicated car park for international travellers is only a 5min walk from the terminal. Alternatively, a valet service is available for a fee, just outside the departure gates.
- If you want to leave the car at home while you holiday, we recommend catching the Sydney Airport Line train that runs throughout the day between the airport and the city centre. While during peak times the train can get very crowded, it is in general cheaper than taking a taxi.
