  • 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.


  • Help!
    Jul 5, 2016
    We are flying into terminal 1 with west jet and out of terminal 4 with Avianca. We only have 3 hours to get to the next flight and are bringing two bikes which I assume will be in oversized luggage. Will we have enough time to make it through security, check in and onto the flight?!


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Arriving internationally from Lima and making a domestic connection
    Jun 29, 2016
    Flying into FLL July 1 from Lima, Peru (Spirit 978). We arrive in FLL at 5:36 a.m. with check bags and then have a connection (Spirit 404) to Atlanta, GA at 8:05 a.m. Will there be enough time to check bags and make it through security? Does the airline transfer the bags for us since it is the same company?


    Yes that should be enough time. You will have to claim your bags in FLL to go through US customs then immediately recheck them at the recheck desk then go through security.


  • Travelling Jetblue connecting flight to cartagena
    Jun 28, 2016
    I will be traveling on jetblue airlines in september from NY to cartagena. I have a layover in FLL. It is only 1 hour. All my flights are with jetblue. So my first flight from NY to FLL will be domestic and my second flight from FLL to CTg will be international. Is 1 hour ebnough time for a layover and a quick stop at duty free? Will i need to go through security again or customs or anything like that?


    There is no US Customs when departing the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, note that the duty free offerings at FLL are not extensive.


    As long as they have a bottle of johnny black i will be fine. but if i have to go from gates E to gates F, will i need to go through security again?


    Concourses E and F are connected inside security.


  • Connecting from Delta to Silver Airways Flight to Bahamas
    Jun 24, 2016
    My wife, 10 month son, and I are landing at FLL on Delta at 12:00. Our Silver Airways flight to GHB (Bahamas) departs at 14:33. We will have checked bags and carry-ons. Will we have enough time to exit the Delta flight, collect our bags at baggage claim, check back into Silver Airways, and make it through security to our gate?


    Our Delta Flight is coming from ATL.


    That should be enough time assuming your flight from Atlanta is on-time.

  • What time is required to transfer from Jet Blue to Silver Airlines
    Jun 20, 2016
    Arriving on Jet Blue at 14:52 and going to book Silver leaving at 15:45 to Key West, which is a gap of 53 minutes. Can we book checked bags right through? Are these flights in the same terminal? Is there enough time as no other flights to Key West until next day?


    Are your flights on the same reservation? They are not in the same terminal - you have to go to Terminal 1 and through security.


    Thank you Zap. I have not booked the Silver flight yet as wanted to know if possible before buying ticket. I think I will drive to Key West as not enough time to change terminal and go through security. Thanks for the information.


  • Connecting to Tri rail
    Jun 17, 2016
    My flight lands at 9:20 pm and the Tri rail leaves at 10:13 (the last ride of the night). If I have no checked bags and am flying in from dallas is that enough time?


    If your flight is on-time and you run, you might make it - the shuttle leaves Terminals 3/4 at 9:40 http://www.tri-rail.com/connection-maps/032516_FLA1_Route.pdf


  • OSL-FLL-Panama
    Jun 2, 2016
    Hi. No domestic flights here. Going from Oslo to FLL with Norwegian (terminal 3), and arriving at 8 pm. Then flight to Panama with Spirit at 11:25 pm (terminal 4). No luggage. 3:25 hours seemed to be enough until I read about the waiting times at the passport control? What is your opinion? Thanks in advance


    With no checked bags you should have enough time as long as the flight from Oslo is on-time.


  • Making my Flight
    Jun 4, 2016
    I fly in FLL on Spirit and arrive Friday at 6am at Term 4 with checked bag. I have a departing flight from FLL to Barbados on Jet Blue that departs at 815am. Will I have enough time to grab my bag and recheck it with JetBlue and make it through TSA for my flight? And is it quicker to hustle and run from Term 4 to Term 3 or take the shuttle?


    The fastest way is to run. Is your inbound Spirit flight domestic or international?


    Hey Zap, It is Domestic. Coming in from Vegas.


    Then I think you might just have enough time if the Spirit flight is on-time.


    I made it in time! I checked a bag as well. The Spirit flight arrived super earlier than expected (615am). Getting my bag took the longest. We waited 30 minutes for bags. I walked to Terminal 3. And By 655am I was waiting in line to check my bag for Badbados and apparently a BUNCH of people were waiting and the JetBlue lady asked who was going to Barbados and had use go to a separate line and check out bag before everyone else waiting in the International line. TSA was so quick. Took about 15 minutes. Had about 15 minutes to spare before boarding started. Thanks for your help.


  • Alaska Airlines Terminal 1 to BahamasAir Terminal 3
    Jun 2, 2016
    Our layover in Ft Lauderdale is 53 minutes. We need to get from Terminal 1, which appears to be where Alaska Air is, over to Terminal 3 where BahamasAir is in that time to catch our flight. Is this possible?? Can anyone advise the easiest, fastest way to accomplish that?


    That is not reasonably possible.


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 4
    Jun 2, 2016
    Hi, I will be arrive at 9:25 am at FLL in terminal 3 and my departing flight (to MedellĂ­n) is at 10:46 am in terminal 4. I do not have any checked bags, only a carry-on. How long will it take to get from terminal 3 to terminal 4? Will I have to go through any security or will I be able to go straight to my gate?


    If the first flight is domestic and on-time you should have just enough time. You will have to go through security.


  • Connecting flight
    May 10, 2016
    I start out in Houston then have a connection in new Orleans but it's the same plane (so not really a connection) but from New Orleans we fly into FLL. We have about fifty minutes to make our connection from FLL to San Jose Costa Rica. Will we have to go throuhg security again or once we go through at Houston that's it? We are flying with spirit.


    In FLL you should only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
