Hi. We are considering a flight from Vancouver, CA to Denver, Colorado, then to Tokyo, JP. The layover is 45 minutes in Denver arriving from Vancouver. Will we make the connection? Will we have to go through US customs and security again? Flight number is UA545 and NH7033
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Denver is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Concourse B (the flight to Tokyo is also operated by United).
I am flying from Toronto (YYZ) to Denver (DEN) via Air Canada and then from DEN to Maui, Hawaii (OGG) via United Airlines. The connection flight in DEN is 1 h 16 minutes.

1) Will my check-in luggage be automatically transported to the connecting plane?
2) Is 1 h 16 minute enough time to connect?
Yes, your bags will automatically go through. Yes, you have enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto.
I fly into Denver on Great Lakes arriving 1646, then depart on British at 1745 - do I have enough time with hand luggage only??
That's barely enough time if the Great Lakes flight is on-time and you are able to check in online for your British Airways flight - neither of which are guaranteed.
I am considering a flight from Spokane to Denver to Frankfurt with a connection time of 42 minutes in DEN.
United flight 1702 from GEG, Lufthansa flight LH 447 from DEN
Does anyone know if both these flights come in and out of concourse A? If not how do we get from B to A quickly?
Is 42" enough time?
You will fly into B and out of A. The Underground train connects them inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I'm Flying from SBA on United 5514 to DEN and then from DEN to FRA on United 8879. There is only 42 minute layover. Is this possible with on time flights?
Your flight to Frankfurt will be operated by Lufthansa and depart from Concourse A. So you have to go to the center of B, take the underground train to A, and board your flight. You have just enough time if the flight from Santa Barbara is on-time.
I have a short layover for my connecting flight from Denver to Toronto. Will my departure flight out of Denver be out of the same concourse?
What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying into Denver from?
Flying in from San Diego on Air Canada (operated by United). Flight to Toronto on Air Canada.
Then you will have to take the Underground train from Concourse B to Concourse A to get to your departing flight.
Hello we are flying from SAN to ICT with a stopover in Denver. The listed connecting time is 42 minutes. Will that be enough time to change from flight UA 5372 to UA 4661? Are they in the same concourse B or will I have to go to the concourse C? Thanks!
All domestic United flights are in Concourse B. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate. That is enough time if your first flight is on-time.
I have a flight end of January, from Munich operated by LH, connecting trough Denver to SFO United flight, with 1 hour 20 minutes connection. I have Global Entry and only hand baggage - how risky is this? Thanks!
With Global Entry and no checked bags you should be fine as long as the Munich flight is on-time.
Hi, I'm flying back from Europe to DEN on Icelandair, which, according to flightaware, is notorious for being 30-40 minutes behind schedule. I'm then connecting to a United domestic flight. If everything is on time I have 2 hours to claim my luggage and connect, which should be fine. My questions are: (1) Does United have a recheck desk after clearing customs at DEN (saving having to go up to departures); and (2) if the nail-biting scenario of having only an hour to connect happens, is it possible with global entry and precheck?
Since your bags won't be tagged to your final destination, you'll need to go to the main United check-in counter to re-check your bags. With global entry, it is possible in just an hour but really cutting it close and it depends on getting your bags quickly.
I am returning to USA in beginning of Febuary from Thailand via Bangkok to Narita to Denver to Houston. I have a 1 hour 20 minutes layover in Denver. As this is my entry point into USA, I assume I have to go through Immigration, Customs, Recheck baggage, and Security. The flights will be United Airline coming into Denver and leaving both. I will be traveling with checked luggage, 3 adults, and a child that is 5. One of the adults is a Permenant Resident so needs to go through foreign immigration. My question is how can 1 hour and 20 minutes possibly be enough time? or am I wrong and we go through Immigration and Customs at our last stop houston? Please let me know soon.
Yes, you have the procedure correct. I believe Permanent Residents can use the same line as citizens. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
