AIRPORT PICK-UP If you have booked an airport transfer, you will be met at one of the three major local airports (JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark) by a representative from our airport pick-up services. After you collect your baggage from Baggage Claim and/or pass through Customs, go to the arrival waiting gallery. This is the last area BEFORE the exit of the airport building where passengers meet the people who come to pick them up. Your driver will be waiting for you INSIDE the arrival waiting gallery. Look for someone holding up a sign with your name on it and the EC Logo. If you are arriving at JFK airport, please make sure to look out for the EC driver as you exit customs/immigration and then once you receive your luggage. Drivers, private cars and taxis normally wait around the EXIT. You should keep their eyes open and look out for an EC NY sign with your name displayed on it.
