  • Connection Time Concern
    May 25, 2014
    US Airways flight from San Antonio to Nassau with a connection in Charlotte that is only 36 minutes!! Will we even have time to deplane and board again?


    You arrive at & depart from CLT at either Concourse B, C or E (with corresponding gates. On arrival, look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number, then follow signs. Your transfer time should suffice.


  • Connecting to RIO from SFO
    May 11, 2014
    I have a 1 hr connection between arriving in CLT from SFO and departing to RIO. Do I need to: 1. recheck my bags? 2. go through security? 3. go through customs and immigration? Will I make the RIO flight? Thanks in advance


    Only international arrivals at the U.S. need to go through customs & re-check-in bags. If you have bought both flights on one ticket, your bags will be automatically transferred. Your arrival at, and departure from CLT depends on which airlines you take. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at CLT are connected inside security.


  • flight connection and baggage
    Apr 21, 2014
    Hello, we will be flying with US Airways from Dallas DFW to Paris CDG with flight connection at Charlotte CLT.. Will we have to pick up our bags and check them in again ? The fisrt plane is supposed to arrive at 3:32 and the second one to leave at 4:45 ; is it enough ? Thank you for your answers


    No, on your way to Paris you won't have to do anything with your baggage in Charlotte. All you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


    Thank you ZAP

    Do you think that 2 hours are enough to pass the immigration control (we are Italian) and take the flight to LA? We are on a flight from Rome that land at 4 PM and the flight to LA is at 6.05 PM. Thanks Lorenzo


    Yes, that should be enough time. Charlotte is not that large of an airport by international airport standards.

  • Enough time to clear customs?
    Jan 15, 2014
    HELP please Arriving on US Airways from UK at 6-20pm. Connecting flight to Tampa leaves 8pm. Will we have enough time ( 1 hour 40minutes) to clear customs and immigration and make our connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. US Airways also has a 10:20 PM flight to TPA on some nights should you miss your connection.


    Thanks..thats put my mind at rest.


  • is 30 min enough time to change planes? Riding US Air from Cinci
    Jan 3, 2014
    I'm not sure that landing at 636 and taking off again at 528 and taking off at 601 is enough time if I have to change terminals. Any help? Flying US Air


    Charlotte only has one Terminal and all gates are connected beyond security. If your first flight is on-time you'll be OK.


  • CUN to CLT to IND
    Dec 17, 2013
    We're looking to book RT flights for IND --> CUN next February. The trip down is fine...a 59 minute layover in CLT. But the return only allows 1:23. Will this be sufficient to do the whole customs/baggage/re-check dance and still make our connection? The flight would be arriving at 4:12pm on a Wednesday and we're US citizens (if that makes any difference...I've heard CLT has separate lines for US and non-US citizens...?) Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!


    That should be enough time. CLT isn't an extremely large airport and Wednesdays are slow travel days and if for some reason you miss your connection there's probably a later flight to IND from CLT.


  • Is 40 minute layover enough?
    Sep 28, 2013
    We fly from Jacksonville, NC via CLT, NC on US Airways. From CLT we fly to Philadelphia to catch a flight to Manchester, England. We have a 40 minute layover @ CLT before flying onto Philly, then the international flight from Philly. Is that enough time (40 mins) to change planes?


    40 minutes should be enough in Charlotte if your flight is on-time - it's a fairly small airport by hub standards.


  • Security
    Sep 6, 2013
    Connecting CLT for international flight - must I go through security there since with only one terminal I will be arriving and departing without going outside the security checkpoint. Never been thru CLT. Thanks for replies


    Yes, any time you come from another country and go through US immigration you have to go back through security afterwards.

    how long does it take from Terminal E to terminal C


    CLT just has one terminal E and C are concourses and you can walk between them in less than 15 minutes.


  • 42 min connection time
    Aug 12, 2013
    We're flying from STL to CLT and only have 42 minutes to connect to our flight to Cancun. Will this be enough time or should I look for a later flight? And what are the odds of our luggage making it from one plane to the next? Both are US Airways flights.


    Yes, you can probably make it, but there's not much room for any delays. If there is no later US Airways CLT-CUN flight that day, I would instead look for a connection over DFW on American or IAH on United.

  • How long will it take?
    Jul 12, 2013
    How long will it take to get from the end of concourse b to the end oc concourse e? Are there any shuttles?


    Probably about 15 minutes, maybe half an hour if you're a really slow walker and go to the bathroom.
