  • Connection from DCA to TPA
    May 23, 2016
    I have a connecting flight from Washington, DC (landing 10:32 a.m.) to Tampa (departing 11:20 a.m.). No checked baggage. Will this be enough time to make the connection? Thank you!


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


  • MSY-CTL-Heathrow
    May 23, 2016
    Hi, I will be travelling from MSY / New Orleans, to Charlotte, to Heathrow. I am due to arrive in Charlotte at 19.09, and the flight to Heathrow leaves at 20.20, which is just over an hour. Is the connection possible? thanks


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


  • Connection between landing flight from RDU and FRA flight
    May 23, 2016
    I am landing from RDU at 3:44, my connecting flight to Frankfurt is at 4:35. Is that really enough time for me to make the connecting flight (and for my checked bag to make it as well)?


    Yes, if both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Delayed Flight -- Making Connection
    May 19, 2016
    I'm flying American and, due to a delay, am expected to land at 9:55 pm at gate D12 (on a domestic flight) -- do I have a chance of making my domestic connection departing 10:15 pm from gate B7?


    There's a chance the second flight will be delayed.


  • 36 min enought time?
    May 18, 2016
    Interested in an American flight (148) out of NYC that connects to another American flight (1957) in charlotte to New Orleans. Only 36 mins between. Is it doable or no way?


    It's possible, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from New York is delayed.


    Thank you. The possibility of delay is a worry.

    May 17, 2016
    Will be arriving on united express from houston and connecting on lufthansa to munich. Have about 1 hr 30 minutes. Can I do security and bag check all in houston?


    Yes, if everything is on the same reservation all you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Time for US re-entry from Saint Martin (SXM)
    May 17, 2016
    I have a little over an hour to make a connecting flight at CLT, but will be returning from Saint Martin (SXM). I will only have carry-on baggage. What kind of time is involved for re-entry checks on a Saturday afternoon?


    That is not possible. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.


  • 30 mins connection time
    May 17, 2016
    I am flying BWI/CLT/ILM in June. I arrive in CLT at concourse B. I will need to get to concourse E with only 30 minutes between flights. Is that enough time? Will I have to go through security again?


    It's enough time if your flight from BWI is on-time. You do not have to go through security.


  • 75 minute connection
    May 17, 2016
    We have an arriving flight from Cancun and have a 75 minute layover. I was told repeatedly that it was enough time as Charlotte is a simple airport? Is it enough time considering baggage, immigration and customs?


    No, that is totally not enough time. Whoever told you that doesn't know what they are talking about. You need at least 2 hours, and this summer maybe even 3.


  • Coming in from Grand Cayman
    May 17, 2016
    hi I'm going to be coming in from Grand Cayman at 4:20 with a connecting flight to DFW at 5:58. I have global entry so I also have whatever that clearance is for TSA that comes with it. Do ya'll think I'll have enough time to clear customs & make my flight to Dallas?


    With global entry I think you have a chance but it will be tough.


  • Connecting Flight Rules
    May 17, 2016
    If I am coming from Pearson Airport (Toronto, Canada) to go to Barcelona to Spain, is it necessary for me to check out and check in again or can I simply go the the specified gate?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Gate change
    May 17, 2016
    I'm flying into Charlotte from Akron going to Phoenix, are they in the same Terminal?


    Charlotte only has one terminal, so yes.


  • 75 min layover. Incoming: Dublin, Outgoing: Miami
    May 6, 2016
    Hi, i have an incoming flight from Dublin and an outgoing flight to Miami, with a layover of 75 minutes in between. I'm not sure if i will have to collect my bags in charlotte and then recheck them for my flight to miami or if they would be taged all the way( both flights are American Airlines) Can you tell me if 75 minutes is sufficient for all the necessary protocols?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate - no protocols. You have enough time.


  • DTW-CLT-EWR, 56 min connection
    May 3, 2016
    Arriving on AA 1734 from Detroit, connecting to AA 1458 to Newark. 56 minutes between flights. I've never flown into Charlotte, I understand it's one terminal. If I have both boarding passes will I be alright?


    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connecting time for incoming London flight then onward to Dayton
    May 2, 2016
    Hi I have a flight coming in from London to CLT and then an onward flight to Dayton. I only have 1 hour 39 minutes for incoming connections - is that enough time to clear customs, collect and re-check luggage and make the next flight? I don't konw if I have to change terminals. I assume that my luggage will be tagged all the way from London to Dayton. Thanks.


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. Charlotte only has one terminal. You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security, and to your departure gate.
