  • Time for Connecting Flights
    May 10, 2015
    I'm looking at taking Air Canada from YYZ (Toronto) to DEN and then DEN to SNA (Santa Ana)... the layover time is only 44 minutes. The connecting flight for DEN to SNA is Air Canada operated by United. Is 44 minutes enough time if the flights are all on time? What happens if first portion of the flight is delayed... do they offer us free alternatives?


    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. All gates at DEN are connected inside security. If you do miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to SNA. If there are no more flights to SNA you could probably ask them to rebook you to LAX.


  • Is 2 hours and 25 minutos enough to connect in DEN to LAX?
    May 5, 2015
    We are 4 people traveling from Panama City, Panama with a 2 hours 25 minutes layover.. I'm still looking at the tickets cause i'm not sure if we will be able to make it. Both of our flight are United.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time for your connection.


  • 39 minute layover sufficient?
    Apr 29, 2015
    Is a 39 minute layover in Denver from a flight coming from Fargo, and going to Seattle, enough time to catch the connecting flight to Seattle? Both flights are United. Are the gates in the same area? It seems like a lot of United flights have tight connections.


    All United gates in Denver are on the B concourse. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Traveling Between Terminals B and C
    Apr 27, 2015
    I will be traveling from Denver to Baltimore via Southwest, and the Southwest flights leave from terminal C. There's a restaurant in terminal B that I wanted to visit with a friend who is taking a United flight on that same day. Is it possible to travel through security to terminal C and then travel to terminal B and then back to terminal C without going through security more than once? Is this via the underground trains? Thanks!


    B and C in Denver aren't separate terminals, they're just different concourses. DEN only has a single security checkpoint serving all concourses before you get on the underground train. Yes, you can freely travel between B and C inside security on the Underground Train.


  • United Express...
    May 20, 2015
    I'm flying into Denver on United Express in early Nov'15 (winter??)...changing planes to regular United and only have 55 min. Is this enough time? Do I have to change terminals (like in Dallas) for small planes to large planes? Thanks


    All United and United Express flights in Denver are on the B Concourse. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your first flight is on-time you will have plenty of time.


    Thank you for your reply. One of us uses a cane, in case we land at one end of "B" and have to get to the other end of "B" are there moving sidewalks or golf carts? This is our first time landing in Denver. Thanks


    There are lots of moving sidewalks throughout concourse B.


    Flying Milwaukee to Anchorage through Denver. We arrive in B79 and depart from B46. The airport map on Denver's website makes it look like gates B59-79 are a separate building, and our layover is 45 minutes. Do we have to take a shuttle to get back to B46, or are those gates actually connected and it's just a bad map? Thanks.


    It's a bad Map, All gates in B are the same building.


  • Flying from phx to Denver-Denver To getmany
    Apr 15, 2015
    My flight from phx to Denver is via United (gate B) than I need to transfer from gate B to Gate A for my flight to Germany(I'm flying with infant) is 50minutes enough to transfer and clear the security?please help


    You do not have to go through security. The underground train connects B and A inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Thank you so much!so even though I'm going connecting to a international flight I won't have to go through security again?this is my first time flying thru Denver and in the past I flew thru Chicago which I had to go thru security twice even though I was connecting flights Also is it fairly easy to find the train station once I get off the plane in Denver?in Chicago it's a nightmare Thank you so much again


    Yes, since in Denver everyone arriving in B has to take the train, unless they are connecting to another flight in B, it's very easy to find.


  • 44 Min connection
    Apr 10, 2015
    First time flying to US with connections, is 44 mins enough time to change planes? Both flights are with United Edmonton to Austin.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All United gates in Denver are on Concourse B. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • flight number connection
    Apr 10, 2015
    Had a non stop flight from Las Vegas to Cleveland, now changed to Las Vegas to Denver with 1 hour and 5 minute layover in Denver to change to different aircraft then on to Cleveland. Flight from Las Vegas to Denver to Cleveland all one flight number, usually they are two fight numbers, one from Las Vegas to Denver and one from Denver to Cleveland. Can anyone explain this to me, why? United can't explain it and is 65 minutes enough time between flights, never have been to Denver Airport


    Yes, that is plenty of time. Ignore the flight number thing. One flight number, two different flight numbers, doesn't really matter if there's a connection required. All United gates in Denver are on the same concourse (concourse B).


    Thanks for your input really appreciate it.


  • Exit terminal between int'l flights?
    Apr 4, 2015
    Flying to Denver from Panama City, then connecting flight with same airline (United) to Calgary in late June. 2 hours and 50 minutes connection time between flights. Is there a way to exit out of the terminal after I clear US customs in order to say hello and have a coffee with a longtime friend from Denver who will meet me at the airport?


    You won't have time to do that.


    Possibly. You would have to do it in the airport though and be very very quick as customs can take a while. You will also most likely have to go through security again.


    Yes, I wouldn't leave airport grounds, just chat for whatever time I can get, leaving at least 45 min to clear security again. Any details on how far the exit would be after customs/where I would have to go is helpful. First time to DEN.


    Your friend could meet you right outside of international arrivals. Then there are lots of coffee shops and restaurants around the security area. Just have them follow signs to the International Arrivals area and you can meet them right outside the door.


  • 40 min between flights
    Apr 4, 2015
    23MAY PSC PASCO - DEN DENVER 1325 1644 UNITED AIRLINES 6368 23MAY DEN DENVER - FRA FRANKFURT 1725 1055 +1 UNITED AIRLINES 8879 operated LH 40 min is it enought to transfer?


    It's possible but it depends on your flight from Pasco being on-time. You will have to walk to the center of the B concourse (you will arrive in the end), then take the underground train to the A concourse to board your Lufthansa flight. 41 minutes is possible, but leaves no room for any difficulties.


    I agree with ZAP. it is possible but will be very very very tight. i suggest taking an earlier flight if possible or if not get a seat in the front of the paso flight so that you can be one of the first off the aircraft.


  • 1 hour 15 minutes lay over.
    Apr 4, 2015
    Hi. It's my first time to travel to the US, I'm from Australia. I am travelling with two children, travelling to Toronto, New York, Alabama then Las Vegas. My Alabama to Las Vegas flight has a 1 hour 15 minutes lay over at Denver both flights with United, will I have enough time for transfer? With my Esta and going through customs then racing to go to the next boarding gate? And do I need to recheck my luggage? Hope someone will be able to help me with my queries. Thank you.


    Alabama, Denver, and Las Vegas are all in the United States. You do not have to go through Immigration or Customs on domestic flights within the United States. You will go through Security in Alabama. All you have to do in Denver is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both on the B concourse. You should have plenty of time.


    Yes you will have plenty of time. even if your first flight is slightly delayed. You will even have some time to grab a snack in the airport if you choose. All united Flights depart and arrive from terminal B so no changing terminals is required which will save you some time


  • SJC - DEN - RAP = 33 minute changeover enough time w/ checked baggage?
    Mar 30, 2015
    I am looking to take the following flights. I will have checked baggage. Do you think this will be enough time for me and my bag to make the flight? United – Flight 815 (economy) 2h 37m Mon, 25 May SJC San Jose, CA, United States Mon, 25 May DEN Denver, CO, United States Airbus A319 (Narrow-body Jet) | 2h 37m | 9+ seats remain Change planes DEN Denver, CO, United States 0h 33m United – Flight 5230 (economy) Operated by Skywest DBA United Express 1h 12m Mon, 25 May DEN Denver, CO, United States Mon, 25 May RAP Rapid City, SD, United States Canadair Regional Jet 700 (Regional Jet) | 1h 12m | 9+ seats remain


    Sorry the times didnt come through! 17.48 SJC - 21.25 DEN 21.58 DEN - 23.10 RAP Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time but obviously leaves no time to spare if it's late and it is obviously the last flight of the day to Rapid City.


    Thanks for the quick answer! I think I will stick with this flight then.


  • just 38 mins for transfer at Denver
    Mar 17, 2015
    Hi there, flying from Las Vegas to Calgary, stop in Denver just for 38 mins, is it enough to transfer from AC 5050 to AC 5202. It should be Air Canada operated by United, are they waitng for each other? thanks a lot


    Your second flight likely will not wait for you. However, if your first flight is on-time you should have enough time. All United flights at DEN are in the B concourse and it shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes to get between gates.


    thanks for quick answer! do I suppose corrctlu that I go through the security before my first flight in Las Vegas and in Denver I dont need to go "outside" or take care about my luggage?


    Correct, you will go through security in Las Vegas and only need to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Denver. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Calgary.


  • Time to go from Terminal B to A
    Mar 17, 2015
    Looking at flights right now. All options give only 1h 15min layover. We'd be coming in on United and leaving on Great Lakes Airlines. Is that long enough to get from Terminal B to Terminal A (will be traveling with a 7 month old).


    A and B are concourses, not Terminals. They are connected inside security by an underground train. Your connection should take less than 15 minutes.


  • Admirals Club
    Mar 17, 2015
    I have a 2.5 hour layover in DEN between 2 southwest flights. 1) Is it possible to get from concourse C to concourse A to use the admirals club, 2) how long does it take to get between the two concourses, and 3) will I have to go through security again to get back to concourse C? Thanks for your help.


    The train connects all concourses inside security. It takes less than 10 minutes to get between them.


    Thanks ZAP, replying from the admirals club now.
