Sutphin Boulevard – Archer Avenue – JFK Airport is a station on the IND & BMT Archer Avenue Lines of the New York City Subway. It is located at Sutphin Boulevard and Archer Avenue in Jamaica, Queens and served by the E and J trains at all times, and by the Z train during rush hours in the peak direction.

This station has two levels; the upper level serves the IND Archer Avenue Line, while the BMT line uses the lower level. Each level has two tracks and an island platform. Like the other stations on the Archer Avenue Line, Sutphin is fully ADA-accessible. There are gray vertical acoustic tile side walls and a glassed-in crossover. The mezzanine is glass and stainless steel and features a "Sutphin Boulevard" mosaic on the geographic north wall.

A connection is available to the Long Island Rail Road at Jamaica station, which is located immediately outside this station. A connection is also available to AirTrain JFK, which provides light rail service to John F. Kennedy International Airport.

There is an entrance opposite the AirTrain terminal that is unstaffed and HEET turnstile access at all times.

This station was originally named Sutphin Boulevard, and served as a replacement for the former Sutphin Boulevard elevated station on the demolished segment of the BMT Jamaica Line two blocks north. When the AirTrain opened, the JFK Airport suffix was added.
