    Yes, all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All of United's gates are connected inside security.


  • Going Through Security to Change Terminals
    Apr 21, 2017
    I have a flight departing from terminal 3, but I would like to use a lounge in terminals 1 or 2. Do I need to go through security again to change terminals, or can I just clear security at terminal 3 and then go to terminals 1 or 2 without going through security again?


    You can walk inside security between terminals 1, 2, and 3.

    There is no US customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security. You have enough time.

    Is it possible to catch a 5 am flight in American Airlines, if your other flight will arrive at 4:35 am which is in ANA ?


    No, that would be completely impossible. However, there are no ANA flights that arrive in Chicago at 4:35 AM. Where are you flying into Chicago from?

    I am flying Aer Lingus from Dublin and having a connecting flight with United. Will I need to clear customs twice? How long does it take to get from Terminal 5 to 1? Thank you.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. In Chicago you just have to take the ATS Train from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1 and go through security.

    We are catching a connecting flight at ORD originating from SFO. We arrive at ORD at 8:43pm Terminal 3 on a Saturday and will depart for our connecting flight at 10pm Terminal 5. Will we have enough time to get from Terminal 3 to 5? Would we be walking or is there a tram between Terminals?


    There is a train that runs outside security between terminals. You have enough time.

    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1. You have enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time.


  • Transfer time
    Apr 13, 2017
    My flight from stockholm will arrive at ORD terminal 5, and i have a connecting flight at terminal 3 1h40min later, will i make it? The connecting flight is at 20:15 (if i remember correctly)


    Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?


    I believe it's one reservation, so as far as i know i ought to have the boarding card for the domestic flight already. I have one checked bag.


    The domestic flight has been moved to 20:30, which will now make my transfer time 1h55min. The airline is AA if that makes any difference.

    Hi, I am going to be flying on OZ 236 with an arrival at 1940. Is it possible to get on UA 4499 to CVG at 21:15? Or UA 4771 to SDF at 20:55?


    The 21:15 flight might barely be possible if everything goes perfectly. The 20:55 flight would not be possible.
