  • C7 to F21 in Terminal 1
    Dec 18, 2014
    Can I get from C7 in terminal 1 to F21 in terminal 1 by walking or do I have to take the ATS. If I can walk, which would be quicker?


    Yes, you can walk, You take an underground walkway from C to B, then walk to your right to F. There is a walkway between T1 and T2. It will take 10-15 minutes. Walking is faster because you don't have to go through security again.


    Thank You!


  • Is 40 minutes enough?

    My daughters will be flying from Salt Lake City to Birmingham via Chicago. Their layover in Chicago is only 40 minutes. Will that be enough time to make their connecting flight?


    Yes, but they will have to hurry between gates.


  • Getting through security without boarding pass

    Hello, I have a friend coming in town from Texas and she has a 2.5 hour layover. Is there a way for me to get a guest pass to get through security and grab dinner with her at one of the restaurants there? Thank you


    No, you cannot. She can exit security and you can have dinner in the Hilton.


  • 2 hrs layover enough?

    I am travelling with only hand luggage from Delhi (DEL) to Chicago(ORD) through an Air India flight. I have a layover time of 2 hours for a connecting United Airlines flight to Austin (AUS). Will this time be sufficient to get done with customs and change terminals too?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You can save additional time by checking in for your United flight online before you leave India.


    Oh! I will check in online then. Thanks a lot!


  • Is 60 minutes layover time sufficient?

    Hello, My airline has proposed a schedule change. I would have 1,5 hours for a layover from Orlando to Amsterdam, now these connecting UA flights only have 60 minutes between arrival and departure. Will I have enough time to make it?


    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in terminal 1.


    Thank you so much!
