I have a connection flight at DFW travelling from Tampa to London. I only have 55 minutes between connections, will this be long enough?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
Is this the same for SLC to Heathrow via DFW? I have a three hour layover between flights, with American Airlines travelling home to London. I'm worried I'll have to recheck bags etc but no other site has been useful.
Hi, I am traveling from India on Qatar Airways(HYD-DOH-DFW-BHM) and have a Layover of 1hour 40 mins at DFW to the connecting flight which is operated by AA. Will the time be sufficient to go through customs and also do I need to re-check my bags? Thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. 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, go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.
We will be travelling from Tallahassee to Shanghai in June 2017. We've never flown international before, so we aren't sure how the connections work.
An option for the outbound trip has a 1:16 layover. Seems close, but can probably work. What are your thoughts?
On the return side, there is a 1:40 layover. Is that enough time? I'm not sure what is involved on the return trip.
When you leave the country all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates in DFW inside security. On the return trip you will have to 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.
Thank you! That makes sense. A 76 minute connection sounds do-able on the outbound side - not sure if we want the extra stress. Something to think about. Thank you!
Hi, We are flying from Shanghai to Cancun via DFW with AA. Do we need to get an ESTA and go through immigration? I feel we would just transfer internally from one flight to the next and our baggage would be taken to the next flight....
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program country other than Canada you need ESTA. If your nationality requires a visa, you need a transit visa.
