    How much time is typically needed from Air Canada to Bahamasair. Bag will have to be rechecked


    2.5 hours.


  • JetBlue flight
    Jan 19, 2017
    Hi my flight is scheduled to arrive at terminal 3 at 6:48am to catch a connection flight to Havana from same terminal (3) at 7:54am. Both tickets are on same reservation. If the first leg gets delayed within 30min or so, will I be able to catch the second leg?


    Yes, if the first flight is domestic you could handle a slight delay. This is a very simple connection


  • Arriving Jet Blue Terminal 3 Departing Silver Terminal 1
    Jan 18, 2017
    I just received a flight change and only have 1 hour 29 minutes to connect - arriving Terminal 3 Jet Blue - Departing Terminal 1 Silver Air - luggage is going all the way through to final destination - Is this enough time?


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • JetBlue-Silver from JFK to ELH, tight connection in FLL
    Jan 17, 2017
    I've booked a flight from JFK to ELH Bahamas on JetBlue with a connection in FLL. JetBlue just changed the flight time from JFK, so now I only have 1 hr 15 min layover in FLL before my Silver Airways flight to ELH. Will I make it? Do I need to go through security again if I'm switching from Term 3 to Term 1?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. The terminals are not connected inside security. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Norwegian airlines to jetblue in 1,5 hours
    Jan 15, 2017
    Hi there, Im flying with Norwegian airshuttle airlines and i arrive at FLL at 19:00. I booked my second flight separately, it's with Jetblue and departs and 20:35. Would there be enough time to get my luggage en re-check it in?


    No, that's not enough time, especially when you consider that Norwegian long haul flights are almost always late.


    Thank you!


  • terminal transfer

    i arrive to terminal 1 (silver airways) and I need to go to jetblue on terminal 3 how can I transfer terminal ill have 3 kids with me. I will arrive at 21:09 my next flt is at 23:47


    Where are you flying into FLL from - is it domestic or international? You should have enough time. Request wheelchair service if you need it.


  • Arriving on Jeblue at Terminal 3 connecting to Southwest terminal 1
    Jan 11, 2017
    Arriving from JFK to FLL on JetBlue. I have a connection on Southwest from FLL to HAV Cuba. Will I make it?


    You didn't post how much time you have, so I don't know.


  • All Jetblue Connection international to domestic
    Jan 10, 2017
    I am flying next month POS-PHL (all JetBlue) and would like to know if an arrival in FLL at 7:02PM would allow me to self connect to PHL departing FLL at 8:33PM? JetBlue will not allow me to book it directly I'm guessing because its not enough time to clear customs. Can you help?


    I don't know if they'd let you do it. It is risky and that's probably why they don't sell it.


  • 50 Minute Connection From Terminal 1 to Terminal 3
    Jan 10, 2017
    Coming from Key West United(Silver) Air. Have connection on American Terminal 3. Is 50 minutes enough? Travelocity said it was, but don't know if they know what they are talking about?


    It'll be pretty tough. You'll have to change terminals and go through security, but I won't say it's totally impossible. Silver Airways flights are also frequently delayed.


  • MCO - FLL - SJO connection
    Jan 9, 2017
    I'm flying in from MCO at 21.10 and have a connecting flight to SJO at 23.31. Is this long enough to collect/re-check baggage? Both flights are with Spirit.


    If both flights are on spirit you don't have to claim and re-check your bags as long as both of the flights are on the same reservation.


    I booked through an agent and have separate booking refs for each flight. I was told I would need to re-check baggage.


    In that case you have just enough time if the flight from Orlando is on-time.


  • Connecting between Bahamasair and Norwegian
    Jan 9, 2017
    Hello. We arrive in FLL by Bahamas Air 207 at 7:25 PM. We have a connecting flight to CPH by Norwegian DY7042 at 9:30 PM. We have checked baggage. Will this be enough time? Both airlines arrive/depart in same terminal.


    That is barely enough time if the BahamasAir Flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau or Freeport. You will have to transfer bags between airlines yourself.


    You need 2 hrs domestic to international check in. If you have checked bags it will be tight because you will have to claim and re-check unless Bahamas air has an interline agreement with Norwegian.


    Bahamasair and Norwegian do not have an interline agreement. Norwegian doesn't interline with anyone. They will have to transfer their bags themselves.


  • Southwest to Norwegian
    Jan 17, 2017
    I have a Norwegian flight leaving at 11:00pm. I am considering a flight through Southwest that would arrive at 8:40pm. I will have baggage and will have to go through standard security. I am thinking this should be plenty of time, but figured it wouldn't hurt to see what others think.


    In case it matters, it would be on a Sunday in June.


    It won't be "plenty of time" it's closer to "not quite impossible" than "plenty of time". I'd want at least 3 hours, especially considering that Southwest and Norwegian are complete opposite ends of the airport.


    Thank you for the help. I was afraid of that. And of course prices have gone up since I asked this (should have checked back sooner). So now I have to decide to risk it, pay 35% more for 1-1/2 more hours or 15% more for the cheapest flight... which would have me in the airport for 6 hours. Thank you again.


  • Transit at FLL
    Jan 5, 2017
    10 march I arrive 5 am at FLL from medellin and going out 9 am to montego bay and i have to recheck baggage, can i make it? And the same 19 march i arrive 9am from kingston and going out 12.17 pm to Havanna and have to recheck baggage with new airline?? I book all flight separate Thank you Marcus Sweden


    The first connection you have plenty of time. For the second connection you should have enough time - what airlines are you flying?


    Carribian airways and jetblue.


    Yeah, that one should still be enough time but might be a bit riskier since Caribbean isn't exactly known for being on-time.


  • Southwest to JetBlue
    Jan 9, 2017
    I am arriving from Bahamas to Fort Lauderdale on Southwest Airlines terminal 1, I think. We have carryon bags and global entry and are connecting to JetBlue terminal 3, I think. We are scheduled to arrive in FLL at 330pm and depart to SAN at 529pm. Should this be enough time?


    With carry-ons that is enough time. You will actually pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau so all you have to do is walk to Terminal 3 and go through security if you check in for your JetBlue flight online.


    Thank you very much


    Global entry gets you through the first phase quickly at Fort Lauderdale airport, the initial screening. Depending on customs, the lines could be long after the initial screening.


    Sallyanne, that is irrelevant as they will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau.


  • Delta to Spirit
    Jan 4, 2017
    Hi! Thanks in advance for any information. I'm flying Delta into FLL at 2:50pm, then will be flying Spirit departing at 5:06pm to Lima. (2 hours, 15 minutes) I'm doing a carry on, but will need to check in/ check baggage at the Spirit desk. Is this enough time? Any other advice?


    It should be just enough time if the Delta flight is on-time.
