I will arrive with Southwest Airlines from Orlando 12/15/17 9:20 pm. My next flight is with Norwegian 11:20 pm. I think I will arrive at terminal 1 and departure from terminal 4(?). I will need to check in my luggage again. As far as I can see there is no shuttle running after 9.00. Will I still be able to make this. Thanks.
You can walk from T1 to the car rental center and take that shuttle to Terminal 4 (the car rental shuttle runs 24 hours). You have just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
We arrive at 21:30 sunday evening and leave out at do I tell which terminal and gate? I have no idea if there is time to make the flight connection!
You arrive and depart from Terminal 4 but if you have checked bags you will have to claim them from Spirit and re-check them with Norwegian. You should have just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi, my wife and I are arriving on sunday with Norwegian to terminal 4 @ 5.30pm. We have a flight from terminal 3 with Bahamasair @ 8.30 pm. Will it be enough with European passport and checked luggage?
That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm coming from Europe, arriving with Norwegian Airline and have six hours before my next flight to Tampa with SouthWest. I have two huge checked bags with me, is there any easy way to get them from my first flight to my second without having to haul them all around myself? I'm willing to pay if there's any service that helps with these situations, just not sure where to ask. Thanks!
There's no service, but you can take the bags on the Car rental shuttle to the Consolidated rental facility, which is just across a pedestrian bridge from the Southwest check-in desks.
I arrive with Norwegian and I am wondering which terminal I will come to and how far it is to car rental at the airport?


You arrive in Terminal 4. It is a short shuttle ride to the consolidated rental car facility from there.
I'm arriving at FLL from Oslo with a Norwegian flight at 7:15pm, and wish to take a Southwest flight to Austin at 09:00 PM. They will be booked separately. I'm a European citizen travelling on ESTA. This is on New Years day. Is there enough time? With/without checked bags? Thank you in advance!
With no checked bags you might have a chance. With no checked bags, no way. Also, Southwest's terminal is on the complete opposite side of the airport from where you arrive on Norwegian.
Thank you so much!
I am returning from Grand Cayman at 3:55pm on Dec. 13, 2107 on Southwest airlines. Will I have enough time to catch a domestic flight on Southwest airlines from Ft. Lauderdale at 5:30pm.
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi!! In flying from Atlanta to FLL with southwest! I will arrive 3:55 pm and my next flight is 9pm with Norwegian to Europe. So I guessing that I will arrive at terminal 1 and need to take my luggage and check them in again at terminal 3. That would not be any problems right? How do I get to terminal 3, is it walking distance or do I take train/bus
You can either walk, or walk to the Rental Car center and take the shuttle bus from there to Terminal 3. There is no Train at FLL.
I am looking for a Silver Airways flight from Key West to FLL arriving around 10:21 am in the terminal 1, and my next one is a Spirit flight to LGA departing at 11:35 am in the terminal 4. Those two are separated, and it leaves me around an hour for connection. I don't have any checked bags. Can I make it?
Or I could choose to fly on United from FLL to EWR departing at 11:56 am. Since both of them are in Terminal 1, one and half hour is enough to make the connection. Am I right?
I think you could make either, but the United connection would be a lot easier and safer.
My flight arrives in FLL from Barbados on JetBlue at 10:30am on a Sunday and my connection is at 11:42am on American Airlines. Is that enough time to make it through customs and make my connecting flight? This is the first time at FLL airport. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your response in advance.
No, that is not enough time, especially if you have checked bags.
