Default Flying into NYC

I will be flying into NYC for my cruise in October and just in case anyone else was wondering the same thing I was, here are the taxi fares from the different airports to the terminal

What is the cost of a taxi from local airports?

JFK Airport has a flat rate of $35 * plus tolls.

LaGuardia Airport is approx. $22 30* plus tolls

Newark Airport is approx. $45 * plus tolls

* Price may increase depending on traffic

Carey,

Thanks, good info.

A friend and myself are leaving on Carnival Victory, September 25, 2004 New York to Canada.

We have air/cruise booked with transportion to and from airport to pier, but from reading these boards wonder if we would not be better off to get a taxi to take us.

Some post I've read said they had a carnival victory rep line them up and the wait was 45 minutes for the bus.

Just we'll just wait til we get there and see.

You may need to redo the fare research. NYCity cab fares went up last week about 25%.

Yep...I posted this before they went up...someone then posted an article about how they increased- what a drag!
The NYPST site has yet to be updated with the new fares.

Hey guys.. I'm a NY native and reading your posts about Canada since I'll be taking a Canadian cruise out of NYC in a couple of weeks. If you fly into JFK there's a great new alternative-- take the "Airtrain"- it's like a monorail that connects the airport to the local railroad.. then you can take the railroad into Manhattan. My husband and I took the airtrain recently, and it was about $4, probably another few dollars to get into the city, and then you only need to pay for a taxi from Penn Station to the terminal.

Hmm...I dont know exactly where the terminal in New Jersey is, but I would think LGA would be a better bet. You can probably call the airports (or check their sites) and they can probably give you the rates for tranportation to the pier in New Jersey.
I have also looked into private transportation (town car or similar) b/c it seems to be the same price as a cab, but its a flat rate, so if you get stuck in traffic, its no extra money for you.
The airport sites have links to private transport companies that service their airport.

Great airfare deal by the way! Good job!

For the RCCL pier in New Jersey, look into flying into Newark rather than JFK or LGA

Yes, the New Jersey port is closest to Newark, and there are usually good rates flying into Newark. If you get a much cheaper rate at either JFK or LGA, then you're better off going into JFK. (JFK is to the south of NYC, so your transfer will just go over Staten Island and into NJ; LGA is to the north of NYC, so yoru transfer will either have to drive all the way to the south side of Long Island before getting to Staten Island, or will have the round about trip of circumventing NYC. Also, JFK is a bigger airport and there are a lot more options for transfers. Good luck!
