  • International Flight - How early should I arrive?

    I have an international flight at 6:20pm on Friday evening on United. What time should I arrive at O'Hare? Considering checking a bag, but not 100% sure yet. What's recommended for checking bags vs. not checking?

     

    If you are checking a bag arrive at about 3:30. If you aren't you can arrive closer to 4.

    Hi. Leaving through American on a Saturday night at 6:20 p.m. I do have a bag to check. What time should I arrive at the airport? Also, I walk with a cane, so are the gates are near the TSA area? (I cannot walk quickly)

     

    None of the AA gates in Terminal 3 are too far from the checkpoints. Saturday evenings are generally not very busy. If you arrive at about 4:30 you should be fine.

    I have a flight on Aer Lingus from terminal 5, from ORD to Dublin. Will I be able to check my bags and go through security all in Terminal 5?

     

    If you're just flying from ORD to Dublin on Aer Lingus, yes, everything will be in Terminal 5.

    If you and your kids can't carry your bags, then I suggest checking a small foldable luggage cart in your bags.

    I am flying on United from ORD to CUN. Will I need to go to the international terminal to check in and go through customs?

     

    No, All United flights depart from Terminal 1. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go to Terminal 1 and go through security.

    Does TSA precheck work for US to intl flights or intl to US flights? What do frequent flyers use?? Thanks

     

    Pre-check does not work at airports outside the US. It does work for international flights departing the US if the airline you are flying is a pre-check participant.

    Our flight is leaving Chicago at 10:40pm Is it safe to arrive at 9 to get through security or should I allow more time

     

    Yes, that should work - the airport starts to get pretty empty at that time on most days.

    Canadian citizen flying from Toronto to Seoul via Chicago Is 2h20m layover enough time to get to terminal 5 from terminal 2? Flying with Air Canada to Chicago, transferring to Asiana. This will happen at night time 9PM-11PM

     

    That should be enough time as long as your flight from Toronto is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Chicago is take the ATS Train to T5 and go through security.
