Can any comment on the time it would expect to take to clear security if arriving at FT Lauderdale Int'l around 10am today?
I & my wife will be landing at FLL at 19:00 hrs with Spirit airlines flight from Cancin on terminal 4.
We will be departing with Norwegian Airlines flight from terminal 3 to Oslo at 22:00. We will not have any checked in baggage, only carry on/cabin baggage. Do we have to go through Immigration & custom and exit out of Terminal 4, then walk to Terminal 3 and go through security check & Emigration on Terminal 3 to board our next Norwegian Airline flight - or is there any transit connection between terminal 3 & 4 to board connecting flights ? Again we will not have any baggage to check in and we would have done all our check in online. Is the time span of 3 hours (19:00-22:00) enough to catch our connecting flight at 22:00 from terminal 3 ?
2 weeks ago I dropped my family off at terminal 3 for departure, they come in Monday night and have looked at all of the maps and did not see but drop off lane in front of terminal 3. So , i guess my question is where to I pick up my family at terminal 3. Thank you for your help.
I arrive at terminal 3 from Boston, and would like to meet my brother who is arriving from Jamaica at terminal 4.
1) Can I walk to terminal 4 or do I have to take a shuttle bus
2) am I allowed in his baggage claim at terminal 4 or do I have to meet him outside ?
Yes, you can walk to Terminal 4 but you will have to meet him at the exit of customs.
This may be a stupid question Zap, but is customs where he picks up his luggage?
I am arriving to FLL from Boston (JetBlue) at 2:05PM and have a 46 min layover before my 2nd JetBlue connecting flight at 2:51PM. Is this too risky? Would the gates be near each other if it's the same airline?
It's possible if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare.
on January 10, I bought a pair of Oakley Sun Glasses at this shop and I need to change them because it was a mistake in the packed, could you please give the contact or phone number of this shop, thanks Luis Salamanca, seller was Angeline.
Unfortunately this is not the Fort Lauderdale airport's website so nobody from the airport or that shop will see this message.
I want. To know if Terminal 2 is re-opened as of January 11th. Thank you
Yes, Terminal 2 reopened the next day (the 7th).
I will take jet blue flight to FLL then take another Jet blue flight from FLL to Cancun. There are 4hr between those two flights. Would I have enough time to leave the airport for 2 hrs and come back to make the second flight?
You could, but what are you really going to do in an hour (considering the time it will take you to get to and from the airport)?
I was going to have some breakfast on Las Olas Blvd. Is it to far from the airport?
im traveling to Bahamas ELH … I've booked a domestic flight from norfolk to fll and then a separate flight from fll to ELH ….. two different airlines . On return if i arrive at 550 will have time enough to go through customs with just a carryon and catch a 735 flight
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. What airline are you flying to FLL?
I'll Be flying from the Bahamas to FLL on silver airlines then from FLL to ORF on Delta
That should be just enough time.
My daugher is traveling from Bogota to Atlanta and must clear immigration and customs upon her arrival. Once exiting customs is there a Spirit Airlines luggage drop off as she leaves customs or must she go upstairs to the main terminal to recheck her luggage?
