What Airport Options Do I Have?

La Guardia is located in East Elmhurst. However, JFK and Newark (New Jersey) are also good options. JFK often offers the best deals because it's the home base for discount airline JetBlue. While New York City is busy year round, fall and spring often bring the best deals.

Are Ticket Prices the Same at all NYC/NJ Airports?

No. JFK often offers the best flight deals, but if you're staying in East Elmhurst, don't forget the added transportation costs from the airport. An airline ticket price difference of $50 may not offer much savings when adding in the cost of getting there.

What Public Transportation Costs Should I Consider?

If you’re flying into La Guardia, you could take a bus for around $2 or a taxi. If you fly into JFK, the 30-minute cab ride to Elmhurst will cost $40-50. Flying into Newark will run $60-75. You can take an airport-to-airport shuttle for about half of the cab rate but will need to find your way from the airport.

Are There Any Nearby Hotels?

There are many East Elmhurst NY hotels, averaging around $150 a night. The greatest choices are around the airport or in nearby Flushing. Long Island City offers cheaper rooms than East Elmhurst.

Any Other Travel Tips?

Consider your preferred airline. JFK offers the most choices with JetBlue, Delta, and American Airlines.  JFK handles much of the international flights, as La Guardia is mostly domestic. Also, JFK and Newark are newer airports, where La Guardia is much older.
