How much time is needed to get from Penair terminal to Southwest terminal?
Denver only has one terminal. Southwest uses concourse C and Penair uses concourse A, they are connected inside security by the underground train. However, if you have checked bags, you have to go to the main terminal, claim them from PenAir and then re-check them with Southwest and go back through security and to concourse C.
I arrive on flight UA5946 from Edmonton at 9:00am.
I depart on flight UA268 to San Francisco at 9:45am.
Is 45 min enough time? I have checked bags.
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on Concourse B.
I am flying frontier Chicago Ohare to United Gillette Wyoming on a smaller jet and then also return flight. I have a little over an hour between flights is that enough time?
Do you have checked bags? If so then that's not possible. If not, then check in online for your second flight both ways and you can make it if the first flights are on-time.
I will have checked bags, I had done this flight a year ago and I think I had similar time and a checked bag. Is there something different? How much time should I allow? Thanks for helping!
If you were able to do it a year ago with the same amount of time with checked bags you were really lucky. I personally wouldn't want less than 2 hours with checked bags.
Ok thanks! Even though I'm going from a larger plane to a small jet they will transfer my luggage over right? Or do I have to get it and take it to the smaller plane? I just know things change and they only fly into Gillette twice a day so I don't want to miss my flight. Your information is very helpful!
They transfer the bag for you so don't worry
Ok thanks!!
Well I just found out what the truth is about what I have been hearing that Frontier Airlines won't transfer your luggage from airline to airline. If you book your connecting flight through Frontier they will transfer your baggage, however if you book your connecting flight through the other airline for example United instead of Frontier (bc it is a United flight to Gilette) they will NOT transfer your baggage. I just confirmed this with the Frontier airlines customer service. I wanted you to know since you help so many people. Again, thanks for all the info!
Hi. I got a flight from LAS to FRA with a 58min layover in DEN. The LAS-DEN leg is operated by united. the whole trip is booked on a Lufthansa flight number. Is that enough time for an intl. connection? Is there any additional passport and security check or do I have to re-checkin my luggage in DEN? I'm a bit concerned, as the Lufthansa tix advises to 'be at denver airport 2hrs before departure'. - Thanks for your help
There are no additional checks in Denver. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate on concourse B to your departure gate on Concourse A. You have enough time if the flight from Las Vegas is on-time.
Are 40 Minutes enough to reach my international flight in denver? Is there another Security to pass?
No, you do not have to go through security. You have just enough time if your flight from San Diego is on-time. You have to take the underground train from concourse B where you arrive to Concourse A where you depart.
I'm flying from Cabo on United into Denver and need to catch another United flight in an hour and a half. Do I have time to clear customs, security, and baggage re-recheck?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My flight is Frankfurt-Denver-San Diego. I have 1 hour and 10 mins in Denver will it be benough? Where will be the custom check?c
In Denver you 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 Concourse B. This is a very difficult connection.
I am arriving at terminal A then connecting on Terminal B. How do I find the train and which one to take ? I'm travelling alone and first time in Denver so very nervous.
Where are you flying into Denver from? What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags?
I am coming from Albuquerque U382 connecting to Edmonton U3576. I will have one checked bag.
Are both on United? If so both flights will be in Concourse B. You don't have to do anything with your checked bags. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Yes they are both United. Oh thank you so very much! I didn't know how I was going to manage the train.
Hello. Would it be possible to know if 43' is enough to transit between a United flight (arriving from Spokane at 16:52) to Lufthansa (to Frankfurt at 17:35)? Do I need to clear security in Denver ? Thank you !!
You do not have to go through security in Denver. It is enough time if the flight from Spokane is on-time but leaves almost no time to spare.
Is it possible to walk back to the main terminal from A Gates? Or do you need to take the train?
I believe you can walk over the bridge
