Can you enter DFW from George Bush Turnpike?
I' ll be travelling from AMS to SLC with a 2. 40 connection time in DFW. I am travelling without checked luggage. At your website I read about a green lane for passengers without luggage. I am travelling on an ESTA. Can I use this lane and how do I get to my domestic flight afterwards ?
Yes, ESTA users can use OneStop/Green Lane. You will clear Immigration and customs with one check in that lane, then proceed to the security checkpoint in Terminal D and then take the Skylink to your departure gate.
You no longer have to claim your luggage in DFW for International to International connections in DFW between Qantas and AA. You still have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You have just enough time.
I will be flying from Shanghai, China into DFW, where I will have a 3 and a half hour layover. Now, I know I have to go through customs when I get into the US but do I need to collect my checked bags before I go through customs? And if I do need to get my checked bags, how do I re-check them? Will it cost me money to re-check my bags after I go through customs?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags, take them through customs, and re-check them at the re-check desk right after. It doesn't cost you anything.
Does this still count if both of my flights are with American Airlines?
Yes, as long as where you are flying to out of DFW is also in the US.
Hi, I arrive at DFW from Sydney on QANTAS on a Wednesday afternoon. I have a connection to HOU on AA. My layover time is 1 hr and 30 minutes. I will need to go through immigration. How likely am I to make my flight to Houston? All tickets were purchased together.
If everything goes smoothly you should have just enough time.
I want to purchase tickets for my family to come to DallasTexas from Toronto. and then back from Dallas Texas to Toronto.
Why wouldn't you be able to purchase tickets for them? Just go to a travel agent or airline website and book them. You will need their date of births and to check in they will need their passport numbers.
Will be flying from wichita falls to Dallas and then having a 1hr and 32 min layover over before heading to Utah. Will I have time to go out side and smoke and not miss my flight?
Is 76 min enough time to clear customs and make it to a separate terminal at DFW on a connection between YVR and SGF? Seems a little tight, but it's being offered by the airline.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in vancouver. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
We are flying American from DCA to DFW and arriving at 7:53 AM. Our connecting flight to SJD (Mexico) departs at 9:10 AM. Not sure what terminal we will arrive at. I am assuming all international flights depart from Terminal D. Do we have enough time to make the connection?
You will arrive in A, C, or D and depart from D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am a mexican traveler flying from Seoul with final destination in Torreón, México. I know once you arrive to an american airport you pick up your luggage, pass it thru the scanners and then check it in (I've done it in LA or San Francisco), nevertheless I've been told Dallas is an exception and that once I check my luggage in Seoul there's no need to pick it up in Dallas and that it will go all the way to Mexico. Since I'm moving back to Mexico I have a lot of luggage and even though that sounds amazing I want to confirm.
Yes, Dallas is an exception. If both flights are on American you just have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
So does the same go for if I'm flying from Shanghai to DFW? I have a 3 and half hour layover there before I go from DFW to JAX. I don't have to pick up my checked bags since both of my flights are with American?
