hi have an aa flight from cancun to den via dallas with a 2 hour lay over. q1 do i immigrate into the us at dallas and q2 is 2 hours enough time to connect to denver. thanks
Yes, in DFW you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train. You should have enough time.
We are flying in from Sydney to DFW with a 1hr 35 transfer time for a flight on AA to Miami, is this enough time and can we stay inside security and use the train?
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Great thanks for that info, appreciated
I will be traveling from Charlotte, NC (CLT) to Guanajuato, Mexico (BJX) with a connecting flight in Dallas. Will my bags be checked through to Guanajuato or will I need to claim my luggage and re-check it in Dallas?
All you have to do in Dallas on your way to Mexico is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Skylink Train. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
We are flying from Guatemala City to terminal D and flying out to Kansas City from terminal C. We are American citizens. We have plenty of time, but what are the steps? Is both Immigration and Customs in terminal D? Do we recheck our luggage (American Airlines) there or do we have to take it to terminal C?
Immigration and Customs is done in Terminal D. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after, then go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
thank you so much!
What terminal does international flights leave from?
Flights to Puerto Rico are not international flights. Your flight could leave from A, C, or D if it's on American.
I'm flying into Dallas DFW from Fort Walton Beach VPS on flight number 3493 then flying from Dallas DFW to SLC on flight 1597 June 12 , 2017 is there anyway to know my terminal I'll be coming into and leaving from ?
You will fly into Terminal B and out of A, C, or D (likely A or C). The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
How long does it take to get from terminal A to terminal E
If you can stay inside security about 10 minutes on the Skylink train. If you have to leave security and take a shuttle bus it's more like 30-40 minutes.
Hi there,

In July I am flying LHR - DFW - SCL, arriving at 15:45 and leaving at 20:15.

Am I going to have enough time to leave the airport and explore Grapevine or Dallas, for example?

Also, could you inform me of the procedure with connecting flights and luggage - do I have to recheck them in at Dallas or will they automatically be placed on the Santiago flight?

And finally, as a British Citizen, will I have to go through immigration on arrival at Dallas or is it exclusively at Santiago?

Many thanks in advance!
No, that's not enough time to leave the airport and go see anything. Since it's an International to International connection, you will go through US Immigration, Customs and Security but not have to claim your bags.
What is the fastest route from Terminal C to Terminal A
The Skylink Train
Hi! We have less than an hour between flights. Our domestic flight AA372 arrives at 3:43 pm. I believe that's terminal C. Our departing international flight AA36 leaves at 4:40 pm. I believe that's from terminal A. Is that enough time to make the connection? Do I have the correct terminals?Thanks in advance!
You will Arrive in A or C and depart from D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you! I wasn't sure if we had to go back through security.
