  • 40 Minute connection in DEN
    Feb 12, 2015
    LAX-DEN-OMA Is 40 minutes enough to connect with all flights being on southwest?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Southwest to United
    Feb 9, 2015
    How much time should I allow to fly into Denver on Southwest and then change to United to fly out of? Thank you!


    Without check bags if you check in online or with the United app you can do it in an hour. With checked bags I would leave at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours, since you will have to go to the main terminal, get your bags from Southwest, take them to United and go through security in that case.


  • British Air to USAir
    Feb 8, 2015
    Could you please tell me how much time it will take us to clear customs after arriving from London, re-checking our bags, and making a USAir flight to Phoenix. We arrive at 4 PM & are US citizens.


    booking tickets together, 90 minutes is sufficient, booking two separate tickets, you should leave at least 2 hours.


    Thanks you for responding. That's a big help.


  • 42 minute layover
    Feb 3, 2015
    I'm looking at booking a United flight from O'Hare to Las Vegas connecting in Denver March 9th. Arrives at 656pm and next departs at 738pm. Both flights are United. All I will have will be a carry-on. Will I be okay?


    If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the B concourse.


  • 37 Min Layover MSP-DEN-LAX
    Feb 2, 2015
    I am flying from Minneapolis to LA with a 37 min layover in Denver. I will be flying on Frontier from MSP to DEN to LAX. Should I have enough time to make it to my next flight with a 37 min layover? All I will have with me is carry on. Thank you.


    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. All Frontier gates in Denver are close together.


  • Connection Time with United
    Jan 21, 2015
    Have a flight tomorrow. Land from Fargo to Denver at 6:15. I have another flight from Denver to SFO that leaves at 7:08. The plane to sfo starts boarding at 6:15 however. Do I have enough time to catch the flight? Or should I make arrangements now. Thanks


    Yes, you should have enough time. All United and United Express gates are on concourse B. If you do happen to miss your connection there is one later flight to SFO at 10:13 PM that currently has a lot of empty seats that you can be rebooked on.


    Yeah, the only concern I have is that I have to check in my carry on since we are flying from Fargo on a smaller jet. I should be out of there in about 15 and make it to the gate in around 5-10. Would that still be enough or would the sfo fight have closed their gates? I'd prefer not to be on the later flight, but if that's how it goes it goes.


    They usually don't close gates early on domestic flights. I think if your first flight is on-time you'll make it

    I'm going to vegas in March. On flight 0287 with 40 min lay over in DEN. .I'm worried that luggage wont make onto next flight 0769. is these two flight the same plane? should I do carry on?


    What airline are you flying? It's unlikely the two flights would be the same plane.


    If there is a connecting flight, only 40 mins to change planes, what are the chances my luggage makes it on the next flight?




    Yes, that should be enough time. All Frontier flights are located quite near each other.


  • 34 min between flights
    Jan 19, 2015
    Is expressjet united in the same concourse as united airlines


    Yes, all United and United Express flights are on the B concourse.


  • 40 Minutes SMF - DEN - CUN
    Jan 13, 2015
    Is a 40 minute turnaround enough time in Denver given that we probably need to travel to the international terminal when we arrive?


    Denver does not have an International Terminal. If you are flying United for both flights you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on concourse B. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • 37 minutes between gates B and A
    Jan 12, 2015
    I have 37 minutes to get froma United flight (I assume arriving at a B gate) and and Air Canada flight departing from I assume an A gate. I have no checked luggage. Will I have enough time?


    Yes, that's enough time if your first flight is on-time and you hurry.


  • 40 minutes in Denver doable? CPR - DEN - ORD
    Jan 12, 2015
    I am about to book a flight from Casper to Düsseldorf, with stops in Denver and Chigaco. The stop in Chigaco takes 3 hours, so I'm not so worried about that, however, I only have 40 minutes in Denver. All flights are with the same airline (United Airlines). Will my bags be going straight to Düsseldorf? And will 40 minutes be enough time in Denver for a(n inexperienced) traveller to switch planes? It's either 40 minutes or nearly 4 hours, so if 40 minutes is easily doable, I'd like to take that option.


    Yes, your bags will be checked straight through to DUS and you won't have to touch them until you get there. In Denver all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both are on concourse B. You have enough time if your flight to Denver arrives on-time.


    How about when I go from Dusseldorf - Frankfurt - Denver - Casper. Would my bags go straight to Casper, or would I have to get them and check them in again at Denver because of that being my first stop in the USA?


    Yes, in Denver on your return you will have to claim them , go through US Customs, then re-check them at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate in the B concourse.


    Thank you very much for your quick responses! Your help is much appreciated :).


    Trying to determine if a flight I want to purchase gives enough connection time and terminals aren't identified. I'd like to fly in to Denver on United Flight 6507 Apr 14, 2015 arriving at 7:01 PM and 47 min later leave on the 7:48 PM UA1683. Is that the same terminal? Would there be any difficulty making this flight even if it arrived a little late? What are the odds on United Flights coming in late?


    Denver only has one terminal. All United and United Express flights are on the same concourse. If the flight is on-time that's an easy connection.


  • Quick Turn Around Flights
    Jan 1, 2015
    I'm dropping a puppy off at the baggage claim area for the new owners and I have an option to choose a flght that leaves 56 minutes after my arrival flight. Is that enough time to go to baggage claim, give the puppy to a new owner (no chit chat), go back through security (carrying a purse only) and make my flight?


    No, that's not really enough time.


  • Connection Times
    Dec 30, 2015
    I have a 53 min connection time. I have to get from gate A43 to gate B38. I arrive at gate A43 with Air Canada from YYZ and leave at B38 on United to OGG. All my flights were booked through United.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. In Denver all you have to do is take the underground train from A to B and walk to your gate.


  • 1hr air canada to delta with bags
    Dec 18, 2014
    I had a schedule change which now only gives me 1 hour between flights. I have to check a bag and change airlines (air Canada-Delta) is this possible? YYZ-DEN; DEN-SLC


    Did you purchase the tickets separately or together. If separately they won't transfer your bags to Delta and you will need to claim them and re-check them. 1 hour is not enough time to do that. Since it was an involuntary schedule change, you need to call the airline with the schedule change and ask for a different flight if that's the case. They should provide it without a change fee. If you purchased tickets together and your bags are tagged through to SLC it should be enough time.


  • Toronto to Denver Connection 56 Minutes
    Dec 17, 2014
    I am flying from Toronto (Air Canada) to Denver (United) to Maui. I have 56 minutes to get from the Air Canada gate in Denver to the United gate from departure to Maui. I realize I clear US customs in Toronto. I have a NEXUS card to help speed things up. Do I have to go through security (Customs was done in Toronto) again in Denver as I see this as a potential choke/delay point? What are my chances of making the Denver - Maui flight with only 56 minutes to get from one airline gate (Air Canada) to another (United). Thanks for your help..


    All you have to do in Denver is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.


    Do I need to go through security again in Denver. I find security eats up a lot of time especially at busy airports... thanks


    No, you do not have to go through security in Denver.
