  • US Custom Wait times at DFW

    I am looking at flights for leaving Sydney Australia and arriving at DFW to connect a flight to MSN. Wait is 1.45 hours. Will that be enough time to get through customs to connect flights?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Arriving American Airlines 1584 from SJU at 1800 , next flight at 1900 also AA. Is 1 hour enough to catch the next flight? Will we have to go through immigration or leave secure area and go through TSA again? If we check our baggage at SJU will we have to collect it in Dallas? Thanks

     

    Flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland US are treated like domestic flights. 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.

    I will be arriving at Dallas on the 17th from Tokyo at 8:25am and connect/depart to Philly at 10:30am. As an international, will I have enough time to go through all the processes and catch my connecting flight? If not, what should i do? Thanks for the help!

     

    You will arrive in the D concourse, go through customs and immigration, then go through TSA security once more at Concourse D. Once inside the secured area of the airport, take the train to your given departure concourse. This is enough time as long as your flight from Tokyo is on time.

    I am flying from YVR to FLL via DFW, AA970 arrival time 1.45pm the connect to AA1402 departure time@ 2.25pm, only 40 min connection time,is it enough ? Please advise

     

    That's enough time if the first flight is on-time. 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 via the Skylink train.

    I am flying from ORD to DFW then on to Cabo San Lucas on American. Will I have to go to International terminal?

     

    Yes, your flight to Cabo will depart from Terminal D, however, all you have to do is go there on the Skylink train. You do not have to go through security again and there is no US Immigration or Customs when departing the US.

    I will be arriving DFW (along with my wife & 1-year-old son) on Qatar airways at 15.35 and my connection flight to Vancouver is at 17.45. Is 2 hours sufficient to go through transit procedures? Do we have to claim the baggage?

     

    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 to your departure gate on the Skylink train. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    I will be arriving in Dallas at 5:08 pm from Mexico City then I have a connecting flight to Omaha at 6:30pm. Will that be enough time to go through customs, immigration, and to recheck in my baggage?

    I am traveling via AA from SJC to DFW arriving at 5:24PM and then have an onward flight to Toronto at 6:25 PM. Since both are AA flights, I'm guessing I won't have to claim baggage at DFW, however, are 60 minutes enough to go through Immigration and Passport Control?

     

    There is no Immigration or passport control when leaving the US. Assuming you are coming from San Jose, California, 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. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you for the clarification, seems like I was sweating for no reason :-)

    I will be flying from Hong Kong to Newark via Dallas in September. I arrive Dallas at 4:15pm, and my flight to Newark is at 6:26pm (approx 2hr15min). Will I make my transfer? What is the process of international to domestic transfers?

     

    That should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and take the Skylink train to your departure gate.

    If we depart from San Antonio Airport and go thru DFW to get to Cancun will we have to get and recheck our bags and go back thru security at DFW or will we just be able to go straight to the connecting flight?

     

    No, you just go directly to your departure gate on the Skylink train.

    I arrive in Dallas at 5:05 and depart to Pittsburgh at 6:30. Is this enough time to clear customs and make the flight?

     

    That's below the minimum recommended international to domestic connection time at DFW. It's possible, but everything has to go perfectly.

    travelling on sep 30 frm Santiago Chile to Toronto via Dallas LATAM OPERATED BY AMERICAN.- ETA Dallas 05:28 and departure at 07:10 ( APP 90 MINUTES ) .- Is it enough time .- How can I know terminal of arrival and departure .- Do I need to approach counter on arrival to DFW ? Tks for info

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D and depart from Terminal A, C, or D. You will arrive, go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You don't have to claim your bags since you are on an an International to International connection all on AA. After clearing security you will take the Skylink train to your departure gate.

     

    tks you mention US immigration Customs and Security .- when and how do I get departure gate to Toronto .- Do I have to go to AA counter at DFW to check this ?

     

    You will be checked in for both flights in Santiago. In Dallas you will be directed to US Immigration and customs and once you clear customs you just follow signs to your departure gate. If your flight to Toronto does not depart from Terminal D you will go through security in D and then take the Skylink train to your departure gate.

     

    tks for info .- Will 90 minutes be enough for Customs clearence and make it to connecting flight Toronto ?

     

    sorry I insist but my last inquire was not answered .- Will 90 minutes be enough from arrival to departure customs immigration included ?

    My son is traveling from Lima to Atlanta with stop at Dallas, we know he needs to go thru customs but he want to know if he needs to collect his bags in Dallas or it will need to be in Atlanta.

     

    In DFW he will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the skylink train to his departure gate.

    We are flying in to DFW on AA from Dayton to B43 at 8:44pm and have a connecting flight at 9:25pm at C33. Is there a best route from B43 to C33? Do you think we will have enough time? Thanks!

     

    Take the skylink train. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
