  • Terminal 3 to 5 transfer
    May 23, 2016
    7
    I am arriving at Terminal 3 (American Airlines from Detroit) and need to collect my luggage (3 large bags, 1 carry-on) and catch the next flight at Terminal 5 (Etihad). My flight arrives at 9:05 am and the other departs at 12:55 pm. Wanted to check if the transfer between the terminal is convenient with large bags on a trolley and the time is sufficient to claim and check-in bags and go through security. I am more concerned about whether the train is convenient for trolleys.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time and yes you can take carts on the ATS Train.

     

    I have heard that carts are not allowed on trains. Want to confirm that we can take carts on train?

     

    Carts are not allowed on trains, there are signs all over for no carts on trains. Moreover, pushing cart will be very inconvenient as you might have to walk outside the building, there are no walkways connecting these terminals. I am glad I sorted out my luggage issue before otherwise would have taken a cab from terminal 3 to terminal 5.

     

    Thanks for clarifying that carts are not allowed in train. What would be the best easy way of transferring luggage from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5

     

    I suppose a cab between the terminals will be quickest with least hassle. It won't be that expensive either. Otherwise ask from information desk, there has to be other options, luggage is not always checked-in all the way. In the end I didn't had to go through this so I was not looking for walkways or connectors, keep cabs in mind and once you arrive ask someone. Trains definitely do not allow carts.

     

    A Cab won't take you between terminals.

     

    It means that any passenger in this situation does not have any easy way or you can say no facility available at the airport to transfer luggage from terminal 5 to terminal 1. Can't expect this at such a big international airport..

    I am flying from stockholm to ORD and ORD to minneapolis. Separate reservations. I have 2 hours and 20 minutes if flight is on time, will i have enough time to get through security and customs with US passport?

     

    With checked bags, no, that's definitely not enough time as you will have to transfer them yourself and go through security.

     

    Thanks! Booking a later flight.

    Flying from Orf to sfo with layover at Ohara..will we need to go through security again? What accommodations can be made for individuals with mobility issues and anxiety in crowds?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to go through security in Chicago. If you need it you can request wheelchair assistance by calling your airline.

  • United to ANA on a codeshare CLE -> ORD -> NRT (Narita); TSA at ORD?

    1 week from Thursday, CLE to ORD on United to arrive at 9:45am, then to catch ANA fight to NRT at 11am (1hr 15m). Since it's a codeshare with bags checked straight through, will we still have to pass thru TSA in ORD?

     

    No, you don't have to go through security at ORD. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    STL to ORD on United, arriving 1:05pm Separate booking ORD to CDG, departing at 3:30pm Checking bags. Do I have to go through security again? Do I have enough time?

     

    ORD to CDG is on British Airways.

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bags, take the ATS Train to Terminal 5, re-check your bags with British Airways, and go through security. This is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    We are traveling to Germany from Knoxville, TN through ORD. Will we have to go through security in ORD? Will we have to retrieve and re-check our luggage? Any assistance is appreciated!

     

    What airlines are you flying? Are both tickets on the same reservation?

     

    sorry, yes both flights are on the same ticket - we are flying United

     

    Then you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 2 and go through security and to your departure gate.

    No, there is a walkway connecting them inside security.

    I have a 2 hour 41 minute layover in O'hare (New Orleans-O'hare-Stockholm-Helsinki.) Is this enough time to make the connection from terminal 1 to terminal 5 for an international flight?

     

    That should be just enough time.

    I am coming in from Kansas City(MCI) August 3rd to ORD and have a connecting flight from ORD to Madrid Spain(MAD) on American Airlines as well. My layover in ORD is 45 minutes before my international flight. Will that be enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your flight from MCI is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    We are flying from STL on Aer Lingus gojet united express and then Aer Lingus. We arrive at ORD at terminal 2 and go to terminal 5. All bought on same ticket.

     

    Yes you will have to go through security in T5. You should have just enough time.

     

    Thanks

    It should be enough time but security is a mess right now so it might be close.

    I have a short connection time of 45 mins arrival from Savannah (United Express) and then on to Washington Dulles (United). Which terminals do I arrive and depart? Is it enough time?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 and depart from Terminal 1. They are connected by a walkway inside security. You have enough time if your flight from Savannah is on-time.

    Hi, I have a Memorial Day morning flight from FNT to ORD (United , Terminal 2) that I'm looking at using to connect to my Korean Air flight departing 2 hours later. With the current TSA delay issues, is this enough time to make this connection? Thanks

     

    It will be very difficult - probably impossible with checked bags on two separate reservations.

     

    And without checked bags?

     

    Maybe you'd barely have a chance then.

     

  • Omaha to Chicago to Dublin

    We are traveling from Omaha to Dublin/Edinburgh on June 7th with the international portion of the Aer Lingus flight departing from O'Hare. It looks as though we have 2 hrs and 50 minutes to get from one gate to the other. I think we are arriving at Terminal 3 and departing from Terminal 5. Will we have enough time and will we have to go through security again?

     

    That should be just enough time if your flight from Omaha is on-time. You will have to go through security again.
