  • Any chance?
    Apr 20, 2017
    Hi! I'm flying in from Bogota into Fort Lauderdale on a JetBlue flight and should land at 4:06 PM on a Thursday. I'm considering a SouthWest flight from FLL to Atlanta departing at 4:50. I know it'd be pushing it but I've never come back into the country through FLL. I'm a US citizen and if customs went smoothly, think I'd be able to make it? Thanks!


    That would be completely impossible. Note only do you have to go through US Immigration and Customs, you have to go to the complete opposite end of the airport and through security. Zero chance.


  • 3h connection time - will we make it?
    Apr 18, 2017
    arriving 10:55am on Emirates into FLL (T3 i believe) - departing 14:05 with spirit to montego bay (T4 i believe), having checked luggage, is it enough time?


    You arrive in T4. That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to transfer your bags yourself to the Spirit check-in desk.


  • International Departures
    Apr 17, 2017
    Does FLL have an international terminal? I'm flying to Cancun on Jet Blue. It looks like the flight may depart out of terminal 3? Can anyone confirm?


    All JetBlue flights depart from Terminal 3.


  • Want to see grandson off in terminal 1 but my flight is out of 3
    Apr 16, 2017
    My grandson is flying as an unaccompanied minor on SW leaving at 2:30. I am leaving at 5:00 for LA on Jet Blue. In order to see him off at the gate, I need to go through security. I am also checking a bag at Jet Blue. How is the best way to do this?


    Terminals 1 and 3 are not connected inside security and you won't be allowed through security in T1 with your checked bag. You'll have to stop at T3 first to check your bag, then go to T1 and see off your grandson, then go back to T3 and through security and to your departure gate.


  • Meeting traveler
    Apr 11, 2017
    Hi. I am wondering. My friend is arriving into Terminal 2 and wants to meet me at my gate in Terminal 3 approx. 45 later. Can he go from terminal to terminal without going thru security again?


    No, you cannot. Terminal 2 isn't connected to anything else inside security.


    Ok, thanks for the response. So, he can meet me in baggage claim I am assuming?


    Yes, that would be where to meet, unless you're renting a car together, then meeting in the Rental Car Center might make more sense.


    Great. Thanks so much for your help.


  • cutting it close
    Apr 9, 2017
    Hi, we have 2 separate tickets flying from ORD to FLL via Spirit then running to our 2nd flight FLL to FPO flying bahamas air. It appears to be arriving terminal 4 going to 3. We are not checking bags. We have about 45 min. How far is the walk between terminals? Are we going to make it? thank you!


    I really don't think that's enough time. Especially considering that Spirit flights are frequently delayed.


  • Time to get through customs
    Apr 3, 2017
    We are flying to treasure cay with a layover in ft lauderdale. The flight we are thinking about booking only allows for an hour to deplane go through customs and board. Will this be enough time to get through customs? It's Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.


    I assume the first flight is on Silver Airways. What airline is the second flight on? Is it all one reservation?


  • Would I be able to make it
    Apr 3, 2017
    My friends and I already have a round trip ticket booked from CLT to FLL and want to do the drive from Fort Lauderdale to Key West on the way there. On the way back, on a Sunday - we want to book a one way flight from Key West to Fort Lauderdale (we won't be checking bags or anything). Our flight from FLL to CLT leaves at 6:45 on American Airlines ... we can either play it safe and land in FLL at 3:40, or we can leave Key West at 5:03 on United and land in FLL at 6:02 (then run to our 6:45 flight). Is that way too close? Thank you!


    Sorry I meant to say Silver Airways for the one way from Key West to FLL. Thanks


    Play it safe and book the earlier flight. Silver Airways flights are often delayed.


  • Would I make it?
    Mar 31, 2017
    Arrive from BOG to FLL at 7 pm on July 10th (Monday), connection to MCO at 8:13 pm. All with Spirit. Would I make it? (Considering check in bags)


    That would be very difficult, although relatively late in the evening like that it may be possible. However, be prepared to rent a car and drive to Orlando if you miss your connection.

    para buelos de california tenemos que pasar por inmigracion?


    There is no immigration when flying between California and Florida, if that is what you are asking.


  • Terminal 3 to terminal 1
    Apr 8, 2017
    I have a 1 hour and 13 min layover to get from terminal 3 to terminal 1, what is the fastest route? Bus, walk, uber??


    What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from and flying to? Do you have checked bags? The best way is to walk probably if you can walk quickly.


    I am arriving on JetBlue from Boston and flying to Marsh Harbor Bahamas on Silver Airways. No checked bags...thanks so much for your response.


    Another question...is there a walking path to follow between terminals? Any directions for me to follow? Thank you


    Yes, there is a sidewalk. If your JetBlue flight is on-time I think you can make it.


    Flying Southwest from alb to mbj, change planes in FLL , arrive at 10 20 am depart @ 12 05pm enough time?


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 1

    I have an hour and 13 min layover going from FLL to MHH, what's the fastest way to get from my arrival terminal 3 to terminal 1 for departure?


  • Two Hours to Change Carriers from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3
    Mar 28, 2017
    Hi! We are arriving at FLL in Terminal 2 at 4:00 p.m. from a domestic flight and changing carriers to JetBlue in Terminal 3 departing at 6:05 p.m. We are checking 2 bags. Will we have enough time to pick up our luggage, get to Terminal 3, recheck bags and go through security? We are young and fit. Thank you!


    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks for your quick reply and advise. We've adjusted our plans to give us more time between flights.


  • Delta just changed my flight and I need some help.
    Mar 21, 2017
    I arrive on JetBlue at 2:40 on a Wednesday from MBJ, have flight to Atlanta on Delta at 4:00 . Is this possible and should I plan on carry on bags if I can.


    With carry-ons only I think that's possible. but slightly risky.


    Thank you for reply, I am going to download Mobile Passport and hope that will speed up .. a little.


  • Can I make this?
    Mar 21, 2017
    SouthWest Airlines (terminal 1) arrives at 3:30 pm and departing on Caribbean Airlines (terminal 4) which is international at 5:20 pm. Is the possible?


    With checked bags that would be pretty difficult.
