  • While a variety of airlines journey from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) to John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), we recommend looking at flights from providers American Airlines and Qantas Airways. With many daily flights from Sydney to JFK, any delays or cancellations can be quickly amended.
  • 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.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
