    My wife and kids arrive at gate C33 and need to get to gate C47. How long of a walk is that?


    You arrive at Concourse C of the Jeppesen Terminal at gates west C28-39 and need to look for the sign to gates west C40-49. My guess is a 10-minute walk.

    Arriving flight UA257 and connecting on flight UA4873. If on time, will have 34 minutes to make connection, but it looks like UA257 tends to get to the gate about 10 minutes late. Is this doable?


    It's doable, but you're first flight will probably have to be on time. However since UA4873 is on a Dash 8 Q400, those are frequently late too so you might get lucky even if your first flight is late.


    Thanks, I may have my teenagers run to the gate to hold the plane, arriving gate 47 connecting gate 71. I take if we make the flight, our checked bags should as well?


    Usually bags can move as fast as people but there's no guarantees.


  • will i be able to make it

    My flight on Southwest Airlines will Arrive in DENVER CO (DEN) at 08:30 AM and 468 Change planes to Southwest Airlines in DENVER CO (DEN) at 08:55 AM, its only 25 min window, will i be able to make it ? I am worried.


    It's doable - all of Southwest's gates in Denver are located close together on the same concourse. If you miss your connection you'll be rebooked on a later flight, good thing you're going early in the morning!


    thank you so much, how about checked in baggage ? do i have recheck in or not


    No, it will be transferred automatically assuming you check it through to your final destination (which should happen).


    Ya , i just hope my flight reach there on time. Thank you so much for your help.


  • Can I make it in 38 mins?!
    Mar 11, 2013
    I'm arriving from Sioux Falls and I only have 38 mins connecting flight to San Francisco. My airline is United Airlines and I'm travelling international. I'm worried that I'm not going to make it. What are usually the gates for this flights?!


    If your first flight is on-time, yes it's possible to make a domestic connection at DEN in 38 mins but you'll have to hurry.


    Thanks for the information. It's my first time to travel by myself. I'm so worried.


  • Can we make it?

    Arriving SW #4031 from San Jose at 4:45pm, Departing SW #3578 at 5:10pm. Will we have enough time?


    If your first flight is on time, yes, all the Southwest domestic gates at DEN are close together.


    Thanks, its been a long time since we have flown. Appreciate the advice.

    I am on Frontier Airlines connecting with South African Airways at JFK. Can i have my luggage booked all the way through?


    Frontier Airlines does not fly to JFK. In New York they fly to LaGuardia Aiport (LGA). I hope you have several hours between your flights to make the transfer between airports. You will not be able to check your bags through.


  • Transfer from United to SWA with Bags
    Mar 5, 2013
    Can I make the connection from a United flight arriving at 8:35a to a SWA flight departing at 10:20a if I have luggage? Am I correct that we will have to go to baggage claim, recheck bags and go back through security? Any suggestions? Does United ever transfer bags to SWA? Thanks for your insight!


    You need to find out from United if they transfer bags to Southwest - if not, on arrival at Concourse B, you would have to claim your bag on arrival & re-check it in with Southwest at Terminal East. United uses Concourse B, Southwest uses Concourse A of the Jeppesen Terminal; the AGTS train will connect both Concourses in their center, in the secured area. To familiarize yourself withe the terminal layout, I suggest you open; then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


    United will not transfer your bag to Southwest. You will have to claim and recheck. If you are delayed you won't have enough time to do that. I suggest trying to fit your stuff into a carry on.


    Thanks so much for the detailed tips!


  • Can I make it

    I arrive at 10:57 on Great Lakes Air and need to connect to SW flight at 12. Can I make it?


    Denver airport is really easy to navigate - lots of moving sidewalks and a train between each concourse. You'll arrive at the end of B and need to get to the center to take the train to C. Probably won't take you longer than 20 minutes tops to get to your next gate.


    Make sure to check in online and print your boarding pass for your Southwest flight before you leave! Also, don't plan on checking a bag with that transfer time as Great Lakes won't transfer to Southwest so you'd have to claim and then recheck, which I don't think you will have time to do.


    Thanks for your input


    Thanks. I can make it without luggage. Just what I needed to know


  • SW flight connect
    Feb 15, 2013
    I arrive on SW flight 1069 at 8:25 pm and need to connect to SW flight 159 at 9:05 pm. Will I have enough time?


    If arriving & departing on domestic flights at DEN, your transfer time is sufficient. Southwest uses Concourse C (gates C29-39 & C40-49) for domestic flights.

    I arrive on Southwest flight 871 and depart on United flight 6350. I need to know how to get from one concourse B to Concourse C. I have 2 hours I need to collect my bags and make the change.


    I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Flying in on US5652 Skywest. My next flight is with Great Lakes Aviation flight US7240. Need to catch my next flight in 38 min. Do I have enough time. Never flown on either carrier before.


    As both Skywest & Great Lakes are US Airways affiliates, you should arrive and depart from the Jeppesen Terminal's Concourse B, which has gates west B15 to B37; gates east B38 to B60, branching into north gates B59 to B79, and south gates B80 to B95. Just follow gate number signs to your connecting gate.

    I am arriving on FLT# 468 and departing on FLT# 350. Is it possible, along with my checked bags, to make the connection in 35 minutes with Southwest?


    At DEN you arrive and depart from the Jeppesen Terminal's Concourse A which has gates A24-39 & A40-68. You have enough time.

    I arrive on southwest concourse c at 8 am and need to check in with American for my flt to Belize via leaves at 8.50am I'm assuming I have to go out of the terminal check in and go through security again.I only have carry on it possible to make this flt ? Thank you


    Southwest does not fly to DFW! They fly to Love Field, which is a different airport in Dallas. It is impossible to make a connection between the two airports in 50 minutes. You'll need to get either a flight on an airline that flies to DFW or change your Southwest flight to the day before and spend the night in a hotel.


    On arrival at DEN, take the AGTS train (follow signs) to the Main Jeppesen Terminal, go to the departures level and check in at the AA desk. Then go through security check and take the undergound AGTS train to Concourse A - your AA connection - which has gats A24-39 & A40-68. You need to hurry.

    I am coming in on Frontier 1056 and leaving on Frontier 853. Are the terminals close enough to make the time? We are seniors Please let me know


    At DEN you arrive & depart from the Jeppesen Terminal's Concourse A, which has gates A24-39 & A40-68. Just follow signs.


  • 30 minute layover
    Jan 30, 2013
    I am flying US Airways with only a 30 minute layover between flights. My flight arrives at 12:29 am from Phoenix (flt 496) and then departs 12:59 am to Charlotte (flt 498). If I miss my connecting flight, another flight to Charlotte is not available until 10 am that morning! Do I have enough time? Any idea on what gates will be used? thank you.


    At DEN, US Airways uses Concourse B of the Jeppesen Terminal. Concourse B has gates west B15 to B37; gates east B38 to B60, branching into north gates B59 to B79, and south gates B80 to B95.


    US Airways does not have a very big operation in Denver, so your connection will be very short distance. However, based on the times of your flight, I suspect that the same aircraft will operate your PHX-DEN and DEN-CLT flights, so if that's the case you can't miss your connection!


    Actually I just checked and they will not be operated by the same aircraft, but regardless, US Airways doesn't have many gates at DEN so it will be a very short walk between gates.
