  • Step by step - international travel
    Sep 14, 2016
    Hi I am traveling internatinally to USA, I arrived in FLL and need to take a connection to MCO. It's been a while since I travel, does anyone know, step by step from the moment I arrive to FLL? Such as Migration kiosk, claim luggage, etc Thanks.


    What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying into FLL from?


  • Short Jetblue Connection
    Aug 29, 2016
    Looking at booking a Jetblue flight SFO to FLL with a 37minute connection to FLL to SJU, bags obviously not a factor. Is this doable?


    Yes, that is definitely doable if the flight from SFO is on-time.


  • Is there a shuttle from terminal to terminal?
    Aug 29, 2016
    Hello. My sister and I (older women) are flying into FLL from ATL on SW Airlines at 10:50 am Terminal 1B and leave to Freeport, Bahamas on Bahamasair at 12:40 pm Terminal 3E and we will have checked bags. Is there a shuttle from one terminal to another? We normally require wheelchairs. What is the best way to get from one to the other under these circumstances? Thanks for your help.


    Ask the wheelchair pusher to take you to the other terminal. They will tell you the best way.


  • Costa Rica to New Orleans on Spirit
    Oct 8, 2016
    I am worrying that I booked badly...10/19 Sprit 338 from Costa Rica to FLL connecting with 10/19 Spirit 657 from FLL to MSW New Orleans. arrives in FLL at 6 am departs FLL for MSW at 7 am. awfully tight? Should I cancel and figure something else out?


    It's not impossible due to the early morning arrival, but it will be very difficult. If you don't have checked bags that will help a lot.


    How did customs go? We are connecting in FLL from Cancun. I'm wondering how customs works and recheck. Since both flights are at T4 I'm hoping we don't have to go upstairs to the main counter. We won't have enough time.


    Just realized you haven't flown yet 😜


    the flight was for Oct 1, so it hasn't happened yet. Anyway I cancelled the flight. Good luck


    19th, that is


  • FLL connection to Bogota
    Aug 29, 2016
    I have a Spirit flight from Chicago to Bogota stopping at FLL . I have 1:15 for the connection, will it be enough? Do the bags I check in Chicago fly directly to Bogota or do I have to pick them up in Fll and check them again for BTA? Flight from Chicago arrives at terminal 3 and flight to Bogota departd from terminal 4


    If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in FLL.


  • Short connect time, From Term 1 to Term 3
    Aug 21, 2016
    I arrive (Silver) Terminal 1 at 9:03am and need to connect with Jetblue Terminal 3 for my flight to Turks and Caicos at 10:10am, NO CHECKED BAGS. Can I make it? Do I take a shuttle? Walk? Run? HELP!


    Run, you have just enough time if your Silver flight is on-time (which is unlikely).


  • How long should I connect?
    Aug 18, 2016
    I am using Miles on American and have like 3hr 45min Layover about to re check bags and go through security. Do I do Immigration or customs at FLL? Do I do immigrations or customs when I leave Norway for Rome? I forgot to put that on there.


    Where are you flying from and to? I can't answer your question unless you define that.


    I'm flying from CLT-FLL


    No, you will not go through customs and immigration. You will just walk to your departing gate, which could mean exiting security,


  • 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..
