    Flying Dublin to Charlotte and Charlotte to Cancun on 24th Oct ESTA approved, preclearence will be done in Dublin. In charlotte once off plane whats the process?, must bags be claimed and rechecked?,must we go through immagration,security etc?. The layover time will be 5 hours approx. On the way back its Cancun-Philadelphia-Dublin. Any thoughs would be appreciated.

     

    In Charlotte all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Mexican immigration and customs when you get to Cancun. On the way back, in Philadelphia 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.

     

    Thank you for your reply, very helpful.

    Hi, In December I am landing in CLT from PUJ at 8:10PM and have a flight leaving CLT for BUF at 10:15PM. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    Next week I arrive in CLT at 3:39pm and leave for BCN (Barcelona) at 4:45pm. I know customs is on the other end, so is that enough time to get from gate to gate?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    What is the average time it takes to walk from an arrival gate to a departure date in CLT? Arrivng on Piedmont Airlines dbs US Airways Express and departing on US Airways.

     

    You can walk between any two gates in Charlotte in about 15 minutes.

    Planning a flight from WAS to CAN (Mexico) via Charlotte AP. Is 1H 12m layover good to go? 3 pax with US VISA. Thanks

     

    CAN is in China. WAS is a city code for Washington DC. Are you going to Cancun? That's CUN. If you're going from Washington DC to Cancun with a connection in Charlotte, yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I have a connection flight from Montreal Canada an only have 1 hour 22 minutes between flights. Do I need to claiim my checked baggage. Also do I need to recheck in at the gate of ticket counter

     

    What airport are you connecting at? Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? What is your final destination? What airline are you flying?

     

    My flight is from Montreal to Charlotte connecting to St Maarten. The tickets were purchased together with American Airlines but we are flying with US air.

     

    Then that should be enough time. You will preclear US immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You just have to walk from the arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Never Flown- Procedure from Charlotte To San Francisco

    Hello. Ive never been on a plane before. Just wondering what I should expect or do for a non-stop flight from charlotte to San Francisco on AA. I Haven't actually booked it yet..just trying to get a feel for what to expect. Thanks

     

    Note that that flight will be operated by US Airways. You will be able to check-in online at usairways.com 24 hours before your flight and print off your boarding pass at home. If you want to check a bag you will have to pay a checked bag fee, if you want to carry on a bag it will have to fit in the airline's required dimensions. You will have to go through security before the flight. There will be food for sale on the plane. Do you have any more specific questions?

     

  • how long to get thru immigration/customs?

    I am flying into charlotte douglas airport @ 6:30pm from jamaica Jan 1st. I will have 1 hour & 10 minutes to get thru customs/immigration to make my flight to Indianapolis,In.....is an hour enough time to get through security & customs/immegration?? thanks for any advise

     

    That is 20 minutes below the minimum International->Domestic connection time. It's possible you will make it but it leaves very little time to spare. There is one later flight to IND from CLT if you miss your connection. You could call US Airways and ask to be rebooked on it or you could try the connection you have and if you miss it, hope there's empty seats on the later flight.

    I'm flying from Caymans into CLT as my first connection thru AA but operated by US Air. Will have have to pay in the CLT airport to have my bags checked in again?

     

    You won't have to pay a second checked bag fee in Charlotte.

    We are transferring from a London-US international flight to a US domestic flight. Is 2.5hours adequate for US immigration, baggage collection and rechecking in, which I assume we will have to do? Any advice on making this as efficient as possible?

     

    Yes, 2.5 hours should be plenty of time. CLT is a very simple airport, just follow the signs.

     

    My concern isn't the "complication" of the airport, it's stuff like US immigration. Sometimes there are terrible delays, and the bags take a while....

     

  • International Connection- Enough Time?

    Hello, I'm looking at booking a flight from London Heathrow to Kansas City International via Charlotte. The US Airways flight I'm looking at has a 2 hour, 11 minute layover. I was just wondering whether this would be a reasonable amount of time to go through immigration, customs etc? Thanks for your help!

     

    Yes, that is a reasonable amount of time. Charlotte is not a large airport by International hub standards.

     

  • Elderly Parents 1 hour connection

    My parents both in their 80's Parkinson's and dementia have a 1 hour connection in CLT to Newark NJ. Past experiences have not been very good with the reliability of wheelchair and people movers. Do you think a 1hour connection is not enough time to catch their flight? They are not frequent travelers and need TLC...how can we be sure they will be taken care of.

     

    CLT is a fairly easy airport and they won't have to go through any security. But if you're worried book a longer connection.

    I will be on a connectiing flight from Toronto - Charlotte - St. Martin. I have 1:15 in between. I will have checked baggage, do I have to get my luggage? Do I have to go through immigration again? Is 1:15 enough time?

     

    No, you will go through US immigration in Toronto and will not have to claim your luggage in Charlotte or go through immigration there. All you will have to do is go from gate to gate. If your first flight is on-time you will have plenty of time.
