    We will be arriving at Ohare on a domestic flight at 7:05 A.M. and will be getting on a connecting flight to Vancouver Canada at 8:05. Do we go through customs before bording our Vancouver flight and where would we do that?

     

    Only international arrivals in the U.S., other than from certain Canadian & Caribbean airports - Vancouver being one of them - need to go through customs clearance. Your arrival & departure at ORD depends on the airlines you take. Open www.ifly.com/ord and click on the Quick Links /Terminal Map. Below the map are terminal details & how to connect. Under "Flights" in the top row click on Airlines Served. Your ticket and the overhead screen on arrival at ORD will show you your flight number and gate.

     

  • quickest route T5 to T1?
    May 17, 2012

    Is the shuttle the quickest route between the international terminal and the United Terminal (Terminal 1, I think?), or is there a walking route that might be faster?

     

    1. As an international arrival, and unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports in Canada and the Caribbean, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes)- count on 35-50 mins. After exiting the Federal Inspection and luggage re-check areas, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System where you can easily connect to Terminal 1 domestic flights. A free ATS shuttle train running every few minutes can take you there. There is you other choice for you.

    With 2 small children is 1 hr 45 mins enough time to change flights with a connecting flight?

     

    First of all - you have enough time for transfer, even with small children. Second, between T5's ATS level and domestic terminal 2 runs the shuttle train every few mins, taking at most 15 mins. HOWEVER, unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports in Canada and the Caribbean, you need, as international arrival, to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). This can take anywhere from 35-60 mins.

    As an international arrival at ORD, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in bags (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). This can take anywhere from 35-60 mins. Between T5's ATS level and T3 runs the shuttle train every few mins, taking about 15 mins. Terminal 3 has Concourses G, H, K & L with corresponding gates. Your ticket and the overhead screens will indicate airline gate for your departing flight. The ATS train is well-marked at ORD.

     

  • Gate B to Gate C

    We are 77 years old and have 45 minutes to get from BA10 to C4. Is this enough time to change gates, considering the time it takes to get off the plane? Should we try to change our flights?

     

    You arrive at Terminal 1 which has Concourse B (part of the main building) and Concourse C - which is a satellite building. There is no BA10 gate - If your gate is B10, walk toward gate B9 (right) and right after you get to the tunnel connecting both concourses. Turn left, walk past gates C17 to C5 - C4 is across from it. You have plenty of time.

  • walk or tram?

    We have about an hour to get from Terminal 3 to concourse C in Terminal 1; should we walk through T2 to get to T1 or take the tram? Will we have to go through security again if we take the tram? About how long do you think it will take?

     

    While there is a secured connection between the domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3 it is a long walk. The ATS train (follow signs) which runs every few mins between all terminals (Terminal 1 last stop) should take about 15 mins. You need to go through security again.

    How long does it take to travel from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5? I only have 1.5 between flights.

     

    At ORD, between the ATS level of Terminal 5 and the domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3, the ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes - it makes its loop run counter clockwise (T1 is the last stop) - the full loop takes at least 30 mins.

    How can I get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 and how long does it take? Thanks for your assistance

     

    T5 with Concourse M is the International Terminal; all international arrivals, with the exception of flights from airports with border preclearance, are handled at Terminal 5. After arrival at T5 you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bag. Then proceed up one level ATS level (above Federal inspection) to catch the ATS shuttle train which runs every few minutes between the International & domestic terminal 3. From arrival at T5 to arrival at T3 count on 50-65 mins. Note that Trminal 3 has Concourses G, H, K & L with corresponding gates (i.e., G21) - On arrival at ORD, look at the overhead screens to find your connecting flight and gate number.

    Next month (May 17.) I will fly from Frankfurt to Dayton (OH).Can you tell me, please, what can I do if: thanks to delayed arrival, or large cue in front of pasport checking officer, certain time needed for transfer from T5 to T2 (I´m not familiarized with airport O Hare) or any other reasons, I ´ll (without my own fault) miss my plane to Dayton. For transfer from T5 to T2I have only 85 minutes. Flight ticket is valid only for actual date. Can somebody from airport staff help me? Thanks.

     

    While nobody can give you assurance of a serious delay in flight arrival, or unusual delays at Customs clearance, you have a high chance of making your transfer easily within 85 mins with time to spare. This is what you need to do at ORD: 1. On arrival, check the overhead screens to find your flight number, gate & departure time. 2. All international arrivals need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tags issued at FRA should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). This takes normally 35-45 mins. 3. Thereafter, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System where you can easily connect to terminals 2 for your domestic flight. The free ATS shuttle train running every few minutes can take you there. Just follow signs. NOTE: Terminal 2 has Concourses E & F with corresponding gates.

     

  • 1.5 hours at ohare

    I'm flying into Chicago (12 : 55 pm) from India and catching a connecting flight on to LA The whole trip was booked as one ticket, all on one airline (British Airways /Though the operating airline for heathrow-ord-lax is American Airlines). As I hear I will need to land in Chicago through passport control, collect my checked bag and go through customs, wait in line, re-check my bag, wait in line and then go through security And switch terminals in between . I have 1 hours 25 minutes departure-departure between my flights at O Hare . Is the time enough . If i miss my connection will AA/BA book me on the next flight . Should i book disability assistance will that be of any help to make it on time

     

    1. Arriving at the International Terminal 5 at ORD, and after you have re-checked in your bags and gone through customs clearance (the process takes 35-45 mins) - you need to proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System and take the ATS train to your connecting Terminal 3, which runs every few mins. Terminal 3 has Concourses G, H, K & L with corresponding gates (i.e., E15). The ticket & ORD's overhead screens will tell you which gate you need. While 85 mins would be sufficient, you may still want to opt for disability assistance.

    We are flying Winnipeg Canada to Chicago then Houston then Belize- all United Airlines. We will go through US customs in Winnipeg. Have never been in Chicago airport so am wondering about making our connection. We have almost and hour and a 1/2. Also is there any way to find out the gate number and terminal before leaving- it's not on our e-ticket? Thanks!

     

    1. At ORD, United uses Terminals 1, 2 & international T5 (so it's either T1 with B & C gates or T2 with E & F gates for your arrival. T1 & T2 are connected at their gate areas. 2. At IAH United uses Terminals A, C & E - TE. The above-ground TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. If arriving at gates C29-45 and transferring to TE you can walk towards gates C14-24 & proceed straight on to TE. For more details visit www.ifly.com/iah or www.ifly.com/ord and open "Terminal Map", scroll down & you get terminal details and transfer options.
