  • Southwest connections from Nassau
    Aug 16, 2016
    Hi- arriving Feb 01, 2017 on Southwest from NAS to FLL at 1530. Departing on SWA to PHX at 1625. If we check bags can this be done? Can we check bags through to PHX in NAS without re-checking in FLL? Is it possible if we don't check bags? Thanks


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau, all you have to do in FLL whether you check bags or not is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Delta to Silver connection?
    Aug 16, 2016
    Hi - on 11/8/16 we arrive in FLL on Delta (from Detroit) at 12:04 pm (assume terminal 2) and our Silver flight departs terminal 1 at 2:05 pm to Marsh Harbour. I assume enough time to connect? We will have checked baggage. On return I assume this will not be enough time - we arrive FLL at 4:50 pm on Silver from Marsh Harbour and need to connect to Delta departing at 5:55 pm. I wonder if we can check luggage all the way through? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks


    Yes, you assume correctly. That is absolutely not enough time on your return.


    Thanks! Delta and Silver have an "interline agreement". I assume that means I can check baggage all the way through from Detroit to Marsh Harbour and won't have to get my baggage and re-check at FLL?


    Yes, that is what an interline agreement entails. You will have to exit security at Terminal 1's concourse C to catch your Delta flight from Concourse D at Terminal D. Unless you have TSA Pre-check, the connection is nearly impossible, especially since Silver Airways is rarely on time.


    Would TSA precheck or Global Entry expedite things? Detroit to FLL on Delta then catch Silver from FLL to Marsh Harbor (and then vice versa for return portion).


    Delta will not check your bags through to Silver unless you purchased all tickets on the same reservation.


  • BGI/FLL on JetBlue connect with FLL/MCO on SIlver
    Aug 14, 2016
    My flight lands in FLL at 409pm T4 H8. Our connecting flight is from Terminal 1 Concourse C on Silver Airways at 5.55pm. They just changed the time from 640pm, We have checked luggage. We are both global entry and TSA Pre. Will we make this connection if flight is on time (or early I pray)? Thank you


    Sorry, forgot to add, flying in from Barbados


    And flying to MCO. Sorry, forgot to add that too.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that Silver Airways is not a Precheck participant so you won't be able to use Precheck in FLL.


  • Connection Time from CTG -> FLL -> YYZ
    Aug 14, 2016
    Hello, I have a flight that arrives at FLL at 6:16pm (Jet Blue, from Cartegena, Colombia), and then another flight from FLL to YYZ (Air Canada, to Toronto, Canada) at 8:15pm. How rushed / risky will this be? Extra info: I have a Canadian passport. Thank you very much!


    That will be nearly impossible unless your flight from Cartagena arrives early.


    Thanks a lot for your reply - I guess I better change my plans a bit! Out of curiously, which part of the process is going to be the biggest killer?


  • Enough time?
    Aug 11, 2016
    Hello concerned about customs. Not worried about our flight there. But coming back from the Bahamas. Looking at a jet blue flight that has 1.5 hours between coming in NAS-FLL and FLL-SAN (diego). Is that enough time to go thru customs and be back for thr 2nd leg? No checked bags.


    You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in FLL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. you have enough time.


    Thank you kindly for your help.

    I will be flying in from Punta Cana to Fll on JetBlue arriving at 5:07pm. No checked bags...I want to fly out from Fll to Houston at 6:55pm either Spirit or United...which ever is closer to the international terminal. Will I have enough time to go thru customs and security? Which airline should I go with concerning I only have an hour and 45 mins from arrival and departure?


    Spirit is closer to the International Terminal. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, change terminals, and go through security. You will have to check in for your departing flight before leaving Punta Cana. You have barely enough time for your connection.


    Do you think I need to purchase the global entry to expedite the process? I want to fly from United but will go with Spirit due to the time.


    Yes, Global Entry might help a little bit.


  • Fll to San Juan 2 hours checked bag?
    Aug 3, 2016
    Arrived 9:35 Spirit Airlines with checked bags. Connecting Jet Blue for flight departure at 11:54. Is this connection possible?


    Where are you flying into FLL from?


    Atlantic City. Really really hoping this is possible.


    That should be possible if the first flight is on-time.


  • Flight connection & baggage
    Aug 3, 2016
    We are travelling via Jet Blue from LAX-NAS via FLL. We have 1 checked in baggage each. Do we need to collect our baggage in FLL and do another check in for our flight to Nassau?


    No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage in FLL.


    This means that we have checked through baggage and would only claim them upon arrival in Nassau?


    That is correct.


    Thanks for the helpful info..


  • Spirit to FLL, Jet Blue to BGI - different terminals
    Aug 3, 2016
    We are flying Spirit air to FLL, arriving at 517am. We depart on Jet Blue at 735am going to Barbados. I don't know the terminals/gates yet. Will there be enough time to change terminals, clear security and get to the second flight?


    Where are you flying into FLL from? Do you have checked bags?


    We fly DEN to FLL on Spirit, carry-on bags onlyarriving at 517am. We connect with Jet Blue, carry-on bags only, flying to Barbados, leaving at 735am. So we have about 2 hours to change terminals and clear security for the Jet Blue flight.


    That should be enough time.


  • Connections on Spirit SJO-FLL-DFW
    Jul 19, 2016
    I'm flying Spirit into FLL from San Jose, Costa Rica, with a connection to DFW. Arrive from San Jose at 5:52 a.m. depart DFW at 7:02. Is that enough time to clear customs and make the DFW flight?


    With the early morning arrival it will not be impossible, but it will still be very difficult.


  • FLL to San Juan
    Jul 17, 2016
    Correction to earlier note. We arrive and depart Terminal 3 - arrive from Jacksonville on Jet Blue, go out from F7 on Jet Blue to San Juan - do we need to go through security again or do we just do that in JAX?


    You will not have to go through security again.


    Thanks so much - I was concerned about that.


  • Jet Blue arrive Gate A4, go out F7 to San Juan
    Jul 17, 2016
    Will I have to leave security and re-enter it going from gate A4 to gate F7 in Fort Lauderdale? Are they in different terminals?


    Are both flights on JetBlue? There are no A-gates in FLL.


  • short connection time
    Jul 12, 2016
    Hi, flaying from Medellin to FLL in Spirit arriving at 6:38pm and then taking connection to NY on Spirit at 8:10, will we have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Medellin is on-time.


  • Connection between term 4 and 2 - international arrival
    Jul 8, 2016
    Hi, I have an international flight arriving 6:30am, and a domestic Delta leaving 8:00am. Is this enough for pick up luggage, customs, drop bags? Should be terminal 4 to terminal 2. This short layover was due some flight changes and not sure how I should proceed. Thanks.


    It's not impossible but it's really really difficult. if you can somehow do your trip without checking a bag that would be really helpful.


  • short connection time - 45 min.

    Hi flying Dallas - FLL - Bogota Only have 44 minutes to reach my connecting to flight from FLL to BOG Flying Spirit airlines from point A to B to C but i change planes. Is it possible to make the connecting flight to Bogota? I assume i can't check a bag.....? Thanks in advance!


    It's possible if all tickets are on the same reservation, if that's the case you could even check a bag. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.
