The JFK Express, advertised as The Train to The Plane, was a premium-fare service of the New York City Subway, connecting midtown Manhattan to Howard Beach–JFK Airport on the IND Rockaway Line, where a bus connected to John F. Kennedy International Airport. AirTrain JFK now serves the purpose of this bus, but there is no longer express service to Howard Beach. However, AirTrain also connects to Jamaica with Long Island Rail Road service to Manhattan.
The premium fare was collected on board the cars. The JFK Express used exclusively R46 cars for most of its existence though near its end R44 cars were used when the R46 cars began to enter midlife overhauls.
