  • Transfer from FRA to YYC
    May 17, 2014
    I'm travelling on UA from FRA to YYC via ORD - do I have to clear customs in ORD or will my baggage go through to YYC?


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then you can re-check your baggage. Then you will take the ATS Train from T5 to T1, go through security, and to your departure gate.

    Hi, i am really stressed. I am travelling from norway and i am only 18 years old. Never been on such a bog airport as chicago. I will arrive at terminal 5 at 6.25pm... and i will have a next føight that will fly at 8.15pm.... so my question is. Will i make it?


    You have enough transfer time. On arrival at ORD - at Interntional Terminal 5, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in bag where indicated; then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the ATS train, which runs every few minutes, to your connecting terminal, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. IF YOU BOUGHT YOUR 2 FLIGHTS ON ONE TICKET, your bags will automatically be transferred, if not (and your connecting flights is not a code-share flight between 2 airlines) you would need to take your bag first to the connecting airline counter & re-check it in there before boarding the ATS train. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ord then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    If you provide me with what airlines you are flying and where you are flying to I can provide you with more detailed instructions/advice.


  • Enough Time to Transfer?
    Feb 28, 2014
    I'm flying into Chicago from San Francisco and need to transfer to a flight to London Ontario with 44 minutes in between arriving and departing. Is that enough time?


    If your first flight is on-time yes it will be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 2 (assuming both flights are on United/United Express). T1 and T2 are connected by walkways inside security.
