Getting to and from New York Airports

When Filipinos visit the US for the first time, their trip isn’t complete without stopping by either California or New York. These are the two states where Filipino immigrants can be seen everywhere. The three main airports in New York are: the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Newark International Airport (EWR), and LaGuardia Airport (LGA).

The LaGuardia Airport handles mostly domestic flights and is the smaller airports amongst the three. To get to and from the LaGuardia Airport, you can either use your own car, taxis, Bus and Van services, or a LaGuardia airport car service.

If you have money to spare, car services are usually the most expensive form of transportation to and from airports but are probably the most convenient. Dial7 is one of the companies that offer car or limousine service in New York. If you want to travel in style and tour New York, car services are the way to go.

Otherwise, if you’re on a budget, you can use public transportation which is the cheapest but if you have a large amount of luggage, it is probably the most cumbersome form of transportation, next are Bus and Van Services which costs a little more than public transportation but are on schedule and drop-off points are limited. There are always taxis but the fare is expensive and does not include bridge tolls.
