    Hi I am flying from EWR to CLT and have 46 minutes in between CLT and Aruba. I am flying with the same airline (AA). Is this layover enough time for me to catch my CLT to Aruba flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security. Note that both flights will be operated by US Airways.

     

    Thanks, since AA is operated by US Airways does that mean I should expect that my connecting flight might be outside of the AA terminal which is Terminal A at CLT.?

    Will leave Louisville and transit at CLT to Montreal. the flights available for my trip only have 46 min to transit, say Delta 2064/1870 or Delta 3379/5016. Is it enough time???

     

    Delta does not have a Hub in Charlotte. Please double check your itinerary.

    Hi I am travelling on June 30th from Toronto and arriving at CLT at 720pm with US Airways and connecting to another US Airways flight at 810pm destined to FLL. Do I have enough time to connect? I

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am arriving at CLT on a flight from Barcelona, I am ticketed to get on a connecting flight to BWI, will I have to claim my baggage for customs and then recheck my bags to BWI?

     

    Yes, assuming you purchased all flights on the same reservation your bags will be tagged through to BWI, but in Charlotte you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security.

     

    It depends! Charlotte is so backwards. Last year, I flew from Rome and didn't have to pick up my checked bags after clearing customs but I did have to go through security again. This time, I'm on a Barcelona flight as well, I was told to pick up and recheck. Just ask at the desk in Barcelona, I'm sure they'll be much more helpful than Charlotte has proven to be (based on my previous experience).

    HI. Traveling to London Heathrow (Jax to CLT to Heathrow). Will have a 3+ hour layover in CLT . Looks like same airline continuously (AA as operated by US Air.). So, when I arrive in CLT, do I just go to next connecting flight or do I have to pick up luggage, re-check them, go through customs, and then board flight to Heathrow? First time int'l traveler. I'm sure I have plenty of time, but unsure of process for connecting flight and what to anticipate. I'm guessing that customs is not required at this point. right?? Thx in advance.

     

    On your way to Heathrow all you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.

    I am traveling with a disabled companion arriving in an American domestic flight and transferring to a US Air Express to traveling to Toronto, CA. I have an hour between flight arrival and departure will that be enough time to get to US Air gates?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.

     

  • Land in CLT, have 1 hour until flight to Aruba leaves...

    If everything is on time, we should be in CLT for 1 hour. I need to catch a flight to Aruba. What all do I need to do? Recheck bags and such? Is this enough time?

     

    All you need to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security and there is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

  • Is an hour and 20 minutes enough?

    In June, my family will take the American flight from Barcelona arriving in Charlotte, NC at 18:35. Our connecting flight to Tampa departs at 19:55. Is this enough time to get through passport control, collect bags, clear customs and make the connection? All advice welcomed.

     

    That's 10 minutes shorter than the recommended time, but I think if your flight from Barcelona is on-time you'll be OK.

     

  • International transfer as part of Orlando to London journey

    Hi, I am a UK citizen travelling with my family from Orlando to London with a 90 min stopover in CLT. From checking the other forum posts on here there are comments about getting off at 1 gate and just going straight to the international (London in this case) one. However as a UK citizen (and I guess it applies to all international passengers), I have to clear US customs / immigration somewhere dont I? The flight from Orlando to CLT is going to be a domestic one. My question is I suppose, is 90 mins enough time to get from my orlando flight (having landed) to my international flight to London? many thanks.

     

    No, there is no US Immigration or customs upon exiting the US. The airline records your passport details and transmits it to immigration, letting them know you left. Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • 85 minute connection time!

    I'm flying through CLT next week from Heathrow tonOrlnado.mthe connection time is 85 minutes and we land at 1500. Is this a realistic timeframe to clear customs, recheck bags and make our connecting flight?

     

    That's 5 minutes shorter than the recommended time, but it's certainly feasible.

    1st flight lands in CLT at 7:24pm, flight 2 departs at 8:00pm. both flights are US Airways and both are domestic. Can I make the connection?

     

    origin is Newark NJ and destination is Las Vegas

     

    Yes, if the first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.

     

    What if the flight is delayed and I am going to miss the second flight? Will I be taken care of by the airline and given a new flight?

     

    Yes, you will be booked on the next available flight and may be routed over another US Airways or American hub, such as Phoenix or Dallas.

    Hi, Im traveling from Barcelona to Washington DC. I need to go throught Charlotte and I only have 1:10 hours between flights. Woudl this time be enought to do the transfer between arriving international (customs) and taking the next local flight? Thanks

     

    That is 20 minutes shorter than the recommended international to domestic connection time. It's possible, but it will be difficult. If you miss it US Airways has lots of flights from Charlotte to DCA.

    On Monday 6/8 we have a 4 min layover in CLT from Houston to NYC. On U.S. Airways flight that stows carryons apparently. Would it be better to check out bags so they have to transfer them? And decrease our chances of missing? The flights were booked together. Will they hold the connecting if the 1st leg is delayed?

     

    Sorry 40 min layover

     

    They do not hold flights. You should have enough time even if you have carry-ons. All you have to do is walk from one gate to another. If you miss your connection US Airways has lots of flights from Charlotte to New York. FYI "GUA" is the airport code for Guatemala City. New York LaGuardia is LGA.

     

    Thanks. I couldn't remember and was too lazy to look. 😜

    Hi I am travelling home from MCO to Dublin with a connection in CLT. Both flights are with US Airways. I have 50 minutes between flights. Is that enough time to move between gates

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.
