Hey, I will arrive from Bogot√° at Fort Lauderdale FLL airport at 7p.m with Spirit Airlines and my connecting flight to Barcelona with Norweigan Airlines is at 9:45. Is this enough time for an international connection? I have a European Passport.

Thank you very much for your help :)
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly and you have no checked baggage.
traveling from Hartford on Jetblue connecting to Southwest to Grand Cayman
carry on only...connection time is 2hrs and 15mns. Do we need to go thru TSA again? can we get boarding passes for the Southwest flt at gate?
Yes, you will have to go all the way to Terminal 1, get your Southwest boarding passes and go through security. Terminal 3 where you arrive and Terminal 1 where you depart are a sort of a bit away from each other.
I'm planning to travel from POS, Trinidad to Fort Lauderdale, FLL then to Los Angeles, LAX on the following schedule:
Caribbean airlines arriving at 3:35pm and virgin Atlantic departing 6:55pm. Is that enough time to clear customs & immigration and make it to my connecting flight. I think I arrive at terminal 4 and depart at terminal 1. I will have checked bags. Do I just exit the terminal 4 and walk to terminal 1, would I have enough time to do that? Or should I take the shuttle?
Thank you.
Sorry I meant virgin America
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You can either take the rental car shuttle or walk to Terminal 1.
I am trying to book flight from Bimini to Kona. Connection from Bim-FLL arrives at 5:43pm. Connection to SEA departs at 7:02pm. Is that enough time to get through customs?
Are the flights on two separate reservations or one reservation? That connection looks pretty difficult. Do you have checked bags? I assume the flight from Bimini is on Silver Airways, is the flight to Seattle on Alaska?
I arrive at FLL at 10:40am on JetBlue from KIN, Jamaica. Will there be enough time to board JetBlue to DCA departing at 12:35pm on a Saturday
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving on 3923 from Havana (delayed) at 4:25 pm gate A5 and departing to BWI at 5;10 pm at gate B5 - do we have a shot at making this>??? Elderly travellers.
We're flying to FLL from Baltimore for a connecting flight to Bahamas with two checked bags in May. One flight options gives us about two hours and the other about 50 min lay over. Is 50 mins enough time ? -and do we have to get our checked bags and re check them in ? Flying southwest both flights. And lastly do we have to go though another security check ? TIA
Either works. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, 2xinternational passengers arriving at FLL at 09:28 from LGA need to catch the 11:45 departure to GCM. Is this enough time please?
If both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time.
Jet Blue flight from Aruba to FLL scheduled to land at 6:08 pm, and then try to make a connecting flight on Southwest that departs at 8:15, so different terminals. Checked bag. Is that enough time? Will Global Entry or TSA Precheck help?

You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Aruba, so all you have to do in FLL is claim your bags from JetBlue, take them to Terminal 1, re-check with Southwest and go through security. You should have enough time.
Hi, if i'm on an international flight from trinidad to boston with a layover time of 3h 50mins at hollywood international airport, would that be sufficient layover time?
Yes, that should be plenty of time.
