Hello, We are Canadians flying from Vancouver, arriving in Dallas one hour before we need to catch our next flight to Mexico City. Is it possible to make the connection in time?
Yes, that is possible, 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 terminals and gates inside security.
We are traveling from Tulsa, OK to Cancun, MX in October and we have a layover in DFW. We are flying with American Airlines, but we only have an hour layover. Will that be enough time for catch our next flight?
Yes, all you have to do on your way to Cancun is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
Hi, We are a party of four with British passports and have a flight from Vegas arriving into DFW, for a flight to Cancun. I have 1 HOUR and 45 MINS at DFW to make the connection. Can you please let me know if this is enough time and also if I will have to collect my bags and recheck in for the Mexico flight. Appreciate any advise you can give.
If both flights are on American you won't have to claim your bags, but you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello. I am a U.S. citizen flying on American Airlines from Amsterdam, Neth. to DFW and then connecting on to an American Eagle flight to Manhattan, KS. The layover time at DFW is only 1 hour 23 ". Is this enough time to make the transfer and can you tell me from which terminal the American Eagle flight will depart? Thank you.
That's below the minimum International to domestic connection time of 90 minutes. Your flight to Manhattan will depart from Terminal B.
We are landing in DFW from a direct Qantas flight from Sydney Australia We are then connecting to an American Airlines flight to San Jose Costa Rica. There is a i hour 40 minute gap between flights - is this enough time and what do we need to do at the airport as a transit traveller - customs etc??
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. 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.
