Unless you've smartly invested in Global Entry, it's hard not to dread dealing with a stupidly long airport customs line after your already exhausting multi-hour international flight -- especially if you're traveling through the nightmare that is JFK International airport. And there's proof: the New York airport sees, by far, the worst customs wait times out of any major international airport in the country, according to a new study.
Infrastructure research firm Global Gateway Alliance claims that if you're entering the US through JFK, you'll likely face a wait times at customs almost twice as long as other international hubs in cities like Chicago, Dallas, and Atlanta. In particular, the firm found the average customs wait time at JFK to be nearly a half hour, with some of the longest wait times clocking in at close to an hour. JFK was followed by other busy airports like San Francisco International (25 minutes) and Miami International (23 minutes), according to the study.
