  • Legal Layover time

    What is the legal layover time for flights arriving from Aruba to CLT to TYS?


    Aruba has US Immigration and Customs Preclearance, so all you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, so 45 minutes is doable.


  • Hotels near CLT?

    Anyone know some good hotels nearby with shuttle service to CLT? I have an overnight layover Dec. 15.


  • How to get to hotels in Charlotte

    I have an overnight layover in Charlotte from MEM with my next flight leaving the following morning. Once I get in Charlotte, how do I get around to booking a hotel for the night before my next flight?


    Go online and search for airport hotels in Charlotte and book one with a complimentary airport shuttle.

    I land at CLT at 5:15pm on American and my connecting flight is at 5:50pm on American. Is this long enough to make my connecting flight?


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    Am flying American Airlines from Charlottesville to Charlotte and have a 29 minute layover for flight to Asheville. Enough time?

  • DFW - CAK through CLT question

    I am debating this flight that has a 51 minute layover through CLT. I'll have checked baggage as well. Do you think think i'll have enough time? I would be landing early afternoon on a Sunday.


    I forgot to mention, both flights are American.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    flying into CLT at 1047, then leaving for MBJ (Jamaica, international) at 11:30AM - 43min layover, is that enough time to make the flight and bag transfer?


    Yes, that's just enough time if the first flight is on-time. It obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if it isn't.

    On a Friday, if I arrive at 5:20p can I make the next flight that departs at 5:59p? Thanks, Jackie


    If both flights are on American and the first flight is on-time, yes, it is possible.


  • London - Charlotte - Columbus

    I've got a flight from London to Charlotte with a connection to Columbus OH all on American with a 1 hour 47 minute layover - is that enough time to clear customs and immigration ?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Is 2 hours long enough to clear customs


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • short layover

    Nervous flyers, we have an hour and fourteen min. layover in Charlotte, Miami to Richmond, with only carry on, what are the chances we can make it?


    Is it hard to determine where we are supposed to catch this second plane? Will it be on the ticket?


    1hr 14min Should Be Enough Time. If you booked it together it should be on he ticket. It should be in concourse B,C, or D.


    It won't be on your ticket and probably not on your boarding pass - the best place to look is the departure monitors in the terminal in Charlotte. You have enough time and all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Layover of 90 minutes is enough for immigration?

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    If the first flight is domestic that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 5 hour layover can we leave airport and come back?
    Jun 9, 2016
    Hello, me and my soon to be wife will be at this airport on Monday June 13, we fly in at 6:05 and don't leave to the Cayman Islands till 11:25 that morning. Do you think we would have enough time to leave the airport for an hour for some breakfast and quick look around and then come back and get thru security and be on time for our flight or do you think we would be pushing it?


    The airport is fairly remotely located - I don't think there would be much of a point in doing that.
