Flying into Beautiful Brooklyn

Brooklyn is one of New York’s most affordable boroughs, so it’s an excellent destination for budget-conscious air travelers. It’s also less than a 30-minute drive from John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia airports, so you’ll be close to accommodations no matter your carrier. Hotels like the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, Hotel Indigo Brooklyn, and Brooklyn Motor Inn all put you close to airport transportation and the best of Brooklyn.

Which Airport Should You Choose?

JFK Airport is one America’s busiest transportation hubs, so it’s an excellent choice if you’re taking flights to Brooklyn from London, Los Angeles, or almost anywhere else in the world. JFK is well-serviced by public transportation, and the cab fare is cheap to Brooklyn’s southern neighborhoods.  

You won’t find public transport easy getting out of LaGuardia. You’ll need to take the bus all the way into Manhattan, then catch the subway back to Brooklyn. However, cab fare’s not unreasonable if you’re staying in north Brooklyn. Hiring a rental car may also be a good choice when getting to Brooklyn. 

With Whom Should You Fly?

More than 70 carriers fly to JFK, so customers are free to fly with their preferred airlines. Fewer than 20 airlines fly into LaGuardia, including Delta and JetBlue, two airlines that impressed customers in a recent North America Airline Satisfaction study. Travelers cited the mobile check-in facilities, onboard Wi-Fi, and friendly employees these carriers offered.

How to Get From the Airport

LaGuardia might not offer easy public transportation options, but JFK’s AirTrain makes it easy to get out of the airport. Catch the train for $5 to Jamaica Station in nearby Queens, then hop on a bus or subway train for the rest of the journey. With connections, you shouldn’t be any more than an hour in transit.

When to Fly

Brooklyn and other New York City boroughs are popular all year-round, but tend to get busiest during the summer months and festive season. An influx of culturally savvy tourists also hit New York during the fall, when many new theater productions début. The cheapest flights to Brooklyn are available in the first few weeks of winter, before children go on school break and families start their Christmas vacations.

It’s not just the airlines to Brooklyn discounting their services, but many Brooklyn hotels also offer discounts to travelers willing to brave the chilly winds that signal the start of winter.
