  • Connecting time
    Dec 13, 2016
    We are flying into Mexico City from Queretaro and will have 45 minutes to get to the other terminal. Is that enough time?


    No, you pretty much have no chance of making that connection.


    That is what I was afraid of. The reservation agent tried to tell me we would make it. What is the least amount of time to allow? Thanks so much.


    If bags aren't checked through 2.5 hours. If bags are checked through 2 hours, maybe 90 minutes, but that would be really pushing it.


  • T1 10:50 (domestic arr) T2 13.17 (international dep)

    Hi, Delta have changed our flight time, so we now have 2 hr 27 min between arriving at T1 on Interjet flight (from Oaxaca) at 10:50am and departing from T2 on a Delta flight at 13:17. Is this enough time? Thanks, Juliette


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Transit with no boarding pass
    Nov 27, 2016
    Hi - I'm flying into NY with a transit in MEX but the airline (Interjet) didn't check me in for my second flight (they told me to check in in MEX). The flights are operated by the same airline with the same booking reference and will arrive and leave from the same terminal (terminal 1) in MEX. How do I check in within the terminal and is 2 hours enough to do so? I don't have any checked luggage. Thanks


    Just go to the Interjet transfer desk in Mexico City.

    LAN/LATAM uses Terminal 1.

    Hi, I'm flying in from New York and have a connection to Quito, Ecuador. Will 3hr and 40 min be enough time for the connection?


    What airlines are you flying? Are both tickets on the same reservation?


  • Transfer from T1 to T2
    Nov 25, 2016
    Arriving on 26th November at T1 on an Air France flight at 4.15 pm and have to take an Air France flight operated by AeroMexico from T2 at 7.00pm. Same reservation ticket . How do I proceed to T2 from T1 .Will I need to collect my bags and check them in again ?


    The flight from T2 is domestic , to Monterrey in Mexico .


    You need to take a train - it's slow and takes awhile. You will have to claim your bags to go through Mexican customs, then follow instructions whether you can re-check them in T1 or have to take them to T2 with you.


    Thank you . Hoping that the flight lands on schedule . Do you think that 2hrs45min is sufficient time for me to transfer ( go through immigration /customs /baggage ) from T1 to T2 ?


    I think that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you . Will update on my progress @ airport :-)


  • 1.30hrs T2 to T1
    Nov 21, 2016
    Land 20.25 into T2 then transfer to t1 for flight to Amsterdam departure 21.55. Is 1hr30min enough?


    Is your first flight domestic or international? Are both tickets on the same reservation?

    I will have ONLY a carry-on backpack. Fly in on Aeromexico from Oaxaca, need to get to United for flight to US. Will already have a boarding pass. Is 70 minutes enough? I don't know how far apart these places are - I think they're each in one of the two separate terminals though. I am fit and fast and just a backpack. The only other thing that could slow me is security, which of course is never predictable but I'd like to know others' general sense from experience in this particular airport.


    Yes, they are in separate terminals and they only way between terminals is a really slow train. This is a really difficult connection.


    Thanks for the help. Can you give an idea of how long the transit is between terminals? 20 minutes?


    I'd say closer to 30. I haven't personally done it myself but I haven't read good things.


  • Terminal 1 to terminal 2
    Nov 16, 2016
    Arriving from Ixtapa at 2 :00 pm on Interjet terminal 1. Need to d├ępart Aeromexico at terminal 2 at 4:30 pm. Is this suffisent time. We arrive from Ixtapa at 2:00 pm on Interjet terminal 1. Need to depar to SFO on Aeromexico at 4:30 terminal 2. Is this sufficient time? Anyway to expedite transfer between terminals?


    That is possible but won't be easy. There is a train between terminals but it runs outside security and it is slow.


  • Connection MAD-MEX (Iberia) to MEX-VSA (Interjet)
    Nov 8, 2016
    Hi, im arriving at MEX on an IBERIA flight from Madrid at 5.05am. WIll I have enough time to take a 6.45am INTERJET flight at 6.45am to Villahermosa (VSA)? Both airlines are on Terminal 1. Do I go thru Customs in MEX, or in VSA? Thanks,


    In Mexico City you will have to go through Mexican Immigration, claim your bags, and go through Mexican Customs, then re-check your bags with Interjet and go through security. That is a very difficult connection.


  • pasort control
    Sep 25, 2016
    I arrive to MEX and in 2 hours deperature to cancun. Can I do the passport control at cancun or must do it at MEX. I have only 2 :10 hours transit time


    You have to go through Mexican Immigration and Customs in Mexico City. You don't realistically have enough time, especially with a terminal change involved.


  • 2:10 hours fo connection from terminal 1 to terminal2
    Sep 25, 2016
    Arrived to MEX by LH498 at 18:15 terminal1 Deperature to CANCUN AM573 at 20:25 terminal 2 Is the enugt time?


    That will be really difficult.

    Arrival 15.00 Hrs Via Aero Mexico From USA to Mexico City Terminal 2 Dept 17.40 Hrs Via Avianca Mexico City to SAL from TERMINAL 1 Is the transit time sufficient ?


    I won't say it's impossible, but it will be pretty difficult.


  • Question about connecting international flight in Mexico City
    Jul 22, 2016
    I am about to head out on my first international flight. It looks like this: Aeromexico for all flights Las Vegas to: Mexico City (1h45m layover, arrives at 4:30 AM on a Friday) Mexico City to: Cancun Cancun to Mexico City (1h15m Layover, Arrives at 7 PM on a Tuesday) Mexico City to Las Vegas I'm packing light, with carry-on only, so no checked luggage. Given Aeromexico operates out of Terminal 2. Is it possible for me to get through customs and/or immigration to make the connecting flights? Ive somehow managed to travel to all 50 states, but never ventured past a quick trip across the border. Any input on the time it takes to clear customs/immigration in these countries would be much appreciated.


    That should be enough time for both connections.
