  • how long to get thru immigration/customs?
    Oct 24, 2014
    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, 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.


  • International Transfers

    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?
    Jun 23, 2014
    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 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.
