Are you transferring international to domestic/domestic international/domestic /domestic????

It is not about the time of travel between terminals but about the time you will need to clear customs/immigration, get luggage, go to new terminal go through security etc.

If you give folks more details about your trip(which airlines /luggage/no luggage/one ticket or 2 ) they will be able to give you better advice.

Terminal 5 is the furthest terminal in all of JFK from the Airtrain station. Allow no less than 10 to 15 minutes just for the walk to the Airtrain, and that's if you are a fast walker. The hop over to Terminal 8 is fairly short (5 to 10 minutes more). Then it's about a 5-minute walk into Terminal 8. If you need to check in for your flight, that's another 5 to 10 minutes. You'll need to allow 30 minutes for security, but you may not need that much time.

2 hours 20 is doable but don't dawdle
