  • International arrival with domestic connection.
    Mar 11, 2016
    Arriving 8:55pm on Sunday Mar 13 on international flight. Connecting to domestic leg with 10:40pm departure. Will need to grab a bite to eat. Will I have time?


    You only have time to get food if things go really smoothly, which considering your late evening arrival, they may. However, some of the restaurants may also be closing around that time.


  • Layover/baggage
    Mar 11, 2016
    I fly in from Boston to Charlotte and have a 50 min layover until my flight leaves for Tallahassee. Both flights are American Airlines. Will this be enough time to get to where I need to go? Will i need to puck up my luggage in Charlotte and re-check it to go to Tallahassee or does the airline take care of it? Ive only flown direct so im quite nervous. I normally fly direct to Jacksonville and its super easy and direct. Any additional info will be appreciated, ie. Navigating terminals, common issues, using a monorail system, etc. thank you!


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Charlotte. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Charlotte only has one terminal and doesn't have a monorail. You have enough time.


  • Enough time?
    Mar 10, 2016
    Is 46 minutes enough time for a connection?


    If the first flight is on-time and domestic that is enough time.


  • Connecting flight to Seattle
    Mar 10, 2016
    The flight arrives at CLT at 06:50 and for connecting flight to Seattle I have only 35 min. Is there enough time with a carry on?


    It's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Is there enough of time ?
    Mar 9, 2016
    I am scheduled to arrive on March 29 from Miami (on American) at 1:30pm. My next trip is to Allentown (LeHigh) on American at 2:45pm. Is there enough time to make the connection without doing the 100m dash? Is the departure gate likely to be in the same terminal? Are motorized carts available?


    Yes, you have plenty of time. Charlotte only has one terminal. The carts are for people who require wheelchair assistance.


    Thank you very much for your quick response

    April 15, Friday, I will land in Charlotte at 7.10 PM, the next flght, to Europe, is scheduled at 08.15 PM, do you think it's enough time?


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

    Will be arriving in Charolette on Thursday next week from Cancun. Only have about 90 minutes of a layover. Is this cutting it a little close for time?


    Yes, it is cutting it a little close, but it's not impossible. If you don't have checked bags that will make it a lot easier.


  • Enough Time?

    I will be landing in Charlotte this Saturday a little later than planned from Minneapolis, then boarding a flight to Cancun an hour later, will I have enough time to get from gate to gate here?


    Yes, you can get from any gate to any gate in Charlotte within that time.


    I arrive in CLT from San Diego with 1hour 30mins to catch international flight to Frankfurt. Will that be enough time? Do I have to go to a different terminal? I only have hand luggage. Do I need to go through immigration?


  • Need for check-in
    Mar 5, 2016
    In two weeks I will be travelling from Jamaica to Washington DC via Charlotte on American Airlines with a layover of 2 hrs. 50 minutes. Do I need to go through customs and recheck baggage before connecting?


    Yes, 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 and to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thanks ZAP. Very helpful.


  • Travel time
    Mar 5, 2016
    I'm arriving back at Charlotte from Montego bag at 6:44 and get on the flight from Louisville at 7:49. Is that enough time to get through customs ? And make my next flight?


    *to Louisville


    No, I don't think 69 minutes is enough time for an international to domestic connection at CLT under any circumstances.


  • Disabled connection worry
    Mar 5, 2016
    I'm disabled and arrive at gate E17 at 6:22 a.m. and going to B14 for a departure at 7:00 a.m. Enough time?


    Since you will have to wait for the wheelchair pusher and it's completely across the airport, I think it would be pretty difficult.

    I have a 4 1/2 hour stop over at Charlotte Airport. Is there a bus or train that I can take as a little tour?


    No. There is also not much to see in Charlotte and it is very spread out.


  • Connecting flight times

    Looking at booking a flight from London - Charlotte - Fort Myers ( sturdy afternoon). Have a 1 hour 20 minute changeover at Charlotte - is this enough time for immigration etc?? Any help/advice appreciated. Thank you


    That connection time is likely inadequate the minimum International to domestic connection time in Charlotte is 90 minutes. However, without checked bags you could probably make it if your flight from London is on-time.


    Thanks for advice, appreciate it. I would have checked bags & also 2 kids & 2 parents plus me & husband so no way it would work! B thanks anyway


  • Rome (FCO)-CLT-PDX
    Feb 28, 2016
    Traveling from Rome through Charlotte to Portland, OR. Arriving from Rome at 3:55P. Departing CLT at 6:10P. My partner and I have Global Entry/TSA Pre. Do we leave the secure area after clearing customs and immigration, or do we just recheck our bags and proceed to the domestic gate?


    Once you clear customs and re-check your bags at the re-check desk you will be outside security. You will have to go through security to get to your departure gate.


    I assume 115 minutes between flights to accomplish all of this is quite sufficient at CLT.


    Yes, it should be.


    Feb 19, 2016
    My flight for this Saturday from IND to CLT had a schedule change so I will be arriving a little over an hour later than originally planned. This change only give me about 40 minutes to connect to my flight to the Dominican Republic. Will this be enough time?


    It is possible, but leaves no room to spare. Unfortunately only a day before your trip there's not much you can do with regards to changing your booking. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
