    We are flying BWI to CLT and on to Rome, Italy (FCO), Our return will be the reverse. We are at a loss as to what are adequate connection times for the outbound and inbound flights considering changing planes but particularly customs at CLT.


    Outbound, 1 hr is sufficient and 90 minutes would be safe. Returning, I'd want 2 hours because of immigration which can get quite crowded at CLT during the time when all the European flights arrive.


    Thank you for the reply. Together with other replies, we can piece together what to expect.


  • connected at CLT from SFO to JFK
    Feb 5, 2013
    Hi, I will be flying from San Francisco to New York(JFK) on Feb,7 by US airways. I will be connect my flights at CLT airport. I have 1h2min of layover and since it seems US Airways serves every terminal. So I don't know which terminal is to arrive and which one to depart, I am not sure if I can have time enough to make my connection? Thanks !


    There is only one terminal in Charlotte and all the gates are connected beyond security. If your flight is on time you will have plenty of time.


    Oh, it means that I do not have to go through the security check and check in again even if I wanna go to another terminal, is it? That sounds so great!


  • tight connection domestic to intl
    Feb 2, 2013
    Hi, I am arriving at CLT from a domestic flight at 9:11 pm and hope to be able to make a flight to London leaving at 10:15--is this enough time to go through security again and get to the gate? I only have 1 carry on. Thanks in advance for your help.


    Your arrival at, and departure from, CLT, depends largely on the airlines you take. If taking two different airlines, make sure the first one will transfer your bags to the second one - not all airlines do - if not, you would need to claim your bag on arrival and re-check it in with the departing airline. I stronly I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


    You will not have to go through security again. All gates at CLT are connected beyond security. If your first flight is on time, an hour is plenty of time.


    Thank you for the information.

    something to fill an empty stomach. Cuban music playing. $30.00 for two tacos, if that's what they were, a chicken sandwich and two cokes.


  • connecting to Melbourne USA
    Jan 2, 2013
    I am flying from Farnkfurt by LH 5290 and travelling to Melbourne FLorida by US 2435. I land at 14.45 pm to leaving at 16.45. DO I need to recehck my baggage? Do I need to fill in the immigration formalities tat Charlotte?


    1. International arrivals need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. As both US Airways & Lufthansa belong to the Skyteam Alliance, your bags should be transferred to your connecting flight. Lufthansa uses Concourse D, and US Airways uses Concourses D,C & E - with corresponding gates. Concourses A-E surround the main terminals, no shuttle service is needed. You have sufficient time for transfer.


    Thank you so much for the reply. It is quite helpful

    Is USO inside security area


    At CLT Airport, the USO Lounge is above the Atrium, accessible by stairway or elevator. (The Atrium is a glass-enclosed structure with a tree-lined boulevard dotted with comfortable white rocking chairs and surrounded by concessions & services. Opposite from the Atrium is the ticketing area and on either side the security checkpoints leading to the concourses.) I think USO is in the non-secured area.


    The USO lounge is located on the 2nd level above the atrium and is outside the security checkpoints

    I am going from FLL to BNA and the connect is in charlotte, when i get off the plane to the connect will i have to go to baggage claim to get my bag or will they have it for me ? And where is my gate number or terminal at ? And will i have to go through security check again ?


    I suggest you open and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text. If you use different airlines you need to find out from the airline if they transfer bags to the next leg of travel, if not, you need to claim your bag in the baggage claim area and re-check-in your bag with your connecting airline at its check-in counter).

  • JFK (port f entry) - CLT (30 min)- GNV
    Dec 6, 2012
    Hello, I am Flying from India to JFK which would be my port of entry and from there i hav flight to CLT (US airways) and again after 30 min i have a flight to Gainesville reginal airport (US airways again).. Will i need to go through customs again??? Will i hav to check in luggage again (I have a single ticket issued) and according to current status of both flights one would arrive at terminal C and other would depart frm terminal E...Will i make it?? Plz reply..


    1. At JFK you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and then recheck in your bags where indicated. Thereafter, proceed to the departures level, go through security check & on to your connecting gate. At CLT you will arrive at Concourse C and need to transfer to Conccorse E using US Airways Express: The y-shaped gateway with 36 gates includes gates E1 to E9, and then divides to the right to gates E10 to E19, and to the left to gates E20 to E38. All Concourses surround the main terminal - no shuttle service is needed. Just follow signs. You have enough time, provided that your incoming flight is not seriously delayed. and click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text below the map.

    flying USAir - from Roanoke, Va leaving at 8:14 arriving Charlotte at 9:19 - connecting USAir (international) somewhere in the Charlotte Airport leaving at 9:59. I am very concerned we won't have enough time to make the this a valid concern? USAir has changed our flights 3 times, making the departure from Roanoke later and later.


    1. At CLT, US Airways uses domestic Concourses B (gates B1-16) & C (gates C2-19, United Airways Express uses Concourse E (gates E1-38. 2. Concourses A through E surround the main terminal - no shuttle service is needed. 3. On arrival look at overhead screens to find your departing flight, gate number & departures time. 40 mins should suffice.
