    I'm flying from Miami to Phoenix to Dallas, and I only have 1 hour 10 min. to connect the flight to Canada in Dallas, is it enough time? Thanks

     

    Yes, all gates at DFW are connected inside security by the SkyLink train.

     

    Thank you!

    How much time do I need to go through customs and immigration from Guatemala to Dallas to catch a connecting flight to Nashville, TN.

     

    The minimum connection time is 90 minutes.

    AA138 landing DFW at 1455 and departing again on AA980 at 1710. Do I need to run? Do the ITI through-check of bags work as advertised? What are the steps to go through for ITI connection at this airport? I ask because I haven't done any transit in US airport before. Thanks!

     

    you should have enough time. Most of the way ITI bags work from all reports. You will arrive in DFW, go through US Immigration, proceed straight to US Customs, and then proceed up to the security checkpoint. Both of your flights will be in Terminal D.

     

    Thanks! That's reassuring. It means I don't need to pick up bags at DFW, right? The worst nightmare for me would be me flying into Peru with the bag waiting to be collected on the carousel at DFW...

     

    Yes, that's the policy. However, you do have a fair amount of spare time for your connection, so if you're really worried, you may want to check the baggage claim to make sure your bag wasn't accidentally put there.

     

    The baggage claim in that case is on the airside? For airports in Europe or Australia the baggage claim is always after immigration and one must exit to landslide afterwards and no backtracking is allowed Thanks again!

     

    The baggage claim is in between Immigration and Customs. I'm saying since you have some extra time, you could wait there to see if your bag comes out, before proceeding to Customs.

    I arrive in terminal C at 9:15 and depart at 9:45 terminal D... Will that be enough time?

     

    Yes, it's possible, the SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. However, it leaves virtually no time to spare in case of delays.

    Coming from BJX Mexico on to JAX Florida is 1hr 25mins enough time to go through customs & connect to JAX flight ?

     

    It is 5 minutes below the minimum connection time for such a connection but you will probably be OK.

    Hi , Im flying from New Orleans to Cabo via DFW with US Airways...is 1 hour at DFW sufficient time to transfer to the Cabo flight ?

     

    Actually both of your flights will be on American. Yes, that should be enough time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security at DFW.

     

  • Australian passport and clearing customs in DFW for connecting flight

    I will be travelling from Cancun to Vegas via DFW on an Australian passport. Both flights are with AA landing at 14.20 with only 1 hour and 35 minutes between landing and takeoff, Will this be enough time to clear customs check in etc?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go through security then take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal if it is not Terminal D. You should be issued both boarding passes in Cancun.

    Hello! Is one hour enough to make a connection from a domestic US flight (arriving from San Antonio) to an international flight (departing to Amsterdam)?

     

    Yes. that should be plenty of time if your tickets were purchased together. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • 15 Minute Layover

    I'm coming in from Forth Worth Florida, and will be landing in DFW and heading back to Vancouver, Canada with AA. The layover time has now changed to 15 minutes upon checking my ticket. Will that be enough time?

     

    Woops, that was a typo. It should say I'm coming in from Fort Myers, Florida. Not Fort Worth. Thanks.

     

    It might be enough time, but it really depends on your flight arriving a bit early. I would call AA.

     

  • Connection time to Seoul

    I've been notified that my flight schedule was changed. The AA flight from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (BTR) will arrive DFW at 9:15 am. The next AA flight from Dallas (DFW) to Seoul (ICN) is 10:15 am. Do I (and my checked in baggages) have enough time to board on the flight to Seoul? Do I have to pick up my baggages and have them go through the security screen again at Dallas?

     

    All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your luggage or security. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. An hour should be enough time.

    I am flying from London to Guatemala and I only have 1.10 hrs to connect flights in Dallas. Is that enough time?

     

    No, that is not enough time. You need to be rebooked. You will probably have to spend the night in Dallas if you attempt this itinerary.

    I am flying into DFW from Cancun with a final destination of Cleveland. We arrive at 8:35am on an AA flight and depart DFW at 10:10am (1:35 minute layover) also on American Airlines. Will that be enough time to make it through customs and onto our connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of any delays.

    I'm coming from YVR (Vancouver, bc) to DFW by AA at 7:10pm and I'm taking Qatar Airways to Doha at 8pm. Is 50 mins enough to catch the next flight. I booked both the tickets together. Do I have to pickup my luggage? Thanks

     

    No, you do not have to do anything with your baggage in DFW. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver. Yes, 50 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
