Terminal Information - Arriving

Practical Information

For intercontinental flights it’s always a good idea to arrive at least three hours before departure.

You need a valid passport to travel: check that it won’t expire during your trip. If you’re a British Citizen visiting the USA for less than 90 days you might be able to travel without a Visa, thanks to the Visa Waiver Programme. This applies to most visits (leisure, some business, and passing through). Some people don’t apply for the programme, for example if you’ve ever been arrested or have had your passport extended by a British embassy.

What to expect in New York

The dollar might be weak against the mighty pound, but if you’re used to Manchester prices you might be in for a shock when you reach New York. Street food is a pocket friendly way to dine, but if you’re planning on eating in a restaurant you could be paying about 5% more for dinner. Remember to factor tipping into the equation: in the USA it’s bad etiquette to tip less than 20%.

New York’s weather is extreme with temperatures up to 29 °C in summer and as low as -3°C in winter. Remember to adjust your watch: New York is five hours behind the UK.
