    I will fly from CLT through JFK to France. Will CLT check my luggage through to France so I can make my connecting flight at JFK in 1 1/2 hours?


    If both flights are on the same reservation, then yes, they will be checked through.

    My son is coming from Germany. He has a layover in Charlotte before going on to Raleigh. Can he get his bag, go through customs and then leave (skip the flight to Raleigh)? I wont have as far to drive if I pick him up in Charlotte.

    We have 1:37 from the time we arrive at CLT from GCM. Is this enough time to clear customs, get bags and recheck in or is it cutting it too close?


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks ZAP. And the key is "if everything goes smoothly!"

    Flying out of Milwaukee with American Airlines. We have a 50 minute layover in Charlotte. Does that give us enough time?


    Yes, if both flights are on American all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate gate to your departure gate. That's enough time.

    No, that is not enough time for an International to domestic connection in Charlotte. The bare minimum is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended.

  • Returning from Turks & Caicos Connecting in CLT - Customs Concern
    Jan 31, 2016
    I return from T&C this week (Tuesday) and only have 70 minutes between my flights. Is this enough time for a family of 3 to clear customs?


    No, the minimum International to Domestic connection time is 90 minutes. You have a chance because Charlotte is a simple airport and it shouldn't be too busy on Tuesday, but it's well below the minimum.


  • Arrival Time CLT to YYZ
    Jan 19, 2016
    I am a Canadian travelling from CLT to YYZ. My flight will leave CLT at 4:30pm. How early should I arrive at the airport?


    I suggest arriving at about 2:30. They may have to verify your passport details since it is an International flight.
