If I fly from Des Moines, IA to Ohare and then on to Tampa, FL I have to change planes at Ohare and then the reverse on the return trip. The first flights on both trips are on American Airlines via ENVOY AIR AS AMERICAN EAGLE and the second flights of both trips are on American Airlines. How far do I have to travel to change planes at Ohare and do I have to go through security at Ohare?
You do not have to go through security at O'Hare. All you have to do both ways is just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3.
Denver to Chicago to Rome with a 55min layover in Chicago. Both on American. Will I make it ?
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3.
I am flying from CLE to OHare and from Ohare to Springfield Branson airport. I change planes at Ohare. Can you tell me if 60 Minutes layover will be enough tome? Will I stay in Terminal 3?
If both flights are on AA then they will both be in Terminal 3 and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi,
I was wondering if I'll have to recheck my baggage at ORD? the ticket is on the same booking but codeshare with Air Canada. Flying into ORD on UA and out on AC.
Thanks so much in advance!
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 2 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks so much ZAP! We'll opt for a later flight just in case!
Flying HKG to ORD to DTW. How long do I need?
At least 2 hours, preferably a little more.
Flying from ROC to ORD, then ORD to COU. Only 58 min layover. I am handicapped and wonder if this is enough time. Have a wheelchair on call with AA. Do the small planes CR145 which I am on both legs land in same terminal? Thank you, Donna
Yes, both flights will be in Terminal 3, likely both on concourse G (although there's a small chance that one or both flights will be on concourse L).
Thank you Zap.
I fly from Toronto to Chicago to Utah with 1 1/2 hour for change from Terminal 2 to terminal 1. Do I have to go through customs & security? Will I have time to catch connecting flight?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. There is a walkway between Terminal 2 and Terminal 1 inside security.
If we fly United (a codeshare with Air Canada) into ORD from DEN can we stay airside before boarding an Air Canada flight to YUL?
Yes, there is a walkway between Terminal 1 where you arrive and Terminal 2 where you depart inside security and there is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Merci!
I will be flying in from Des Moines on a United flight and have a 2 hour 5 minute layover in Chicago. My next flight is United operated by Swiss Air to Zurich. Is this enough time? Will I go through security again and change terminals?
You will be arriving in Terminal 1 or 2 and leaving from Terminal 5 which means you will have to change terminals and go through security again. Two ours should be sufficient time.
I'm flying from Cincinnati to ORD with a 1 hour 20 minute layover before my next flight which is to Vienna (VIE). But I arrive in Terminal 2 via UA5248 and have to transfer to Terminal 5 for a Austria Airlines flight OS066. Two questions: [1] Must I go through security to enter the international terminal? [2] Is 1:20 enough time?
Yes you will have to go through security when changing terminals and 1hr 20min will be enough time.
