I am traveling from Copenhagen to FLL, I arrive at 9:45 pm, and my connecting flight to San Pedro Sula is at 12:00 am. So I have 2 hours and 15 minutes to make it to my connecting flight. Is that enough time? I am not a US citizen and I do not have checked bags. TIA
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
We're flying into FLL from BWI, heading to NAS. Is 1 hour enough time to transfer in between gates both outbound and return?
If both flights are on the same airline and reservation, yes, that is enough time. On the return you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau.
We are flying from Nassau to northeast us and connecting through ft launderdale. We just cleared us customs and immigration in Nassau and we're told we would not have to get our bags again (staying on southwest airline) in FLL. Question: will we have to go through security in FLL or will we stay within gate areas?
You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello ZAP,
I will come from Dubai at FLL by emirates & connecting flight for Nashville after 3 hours by Jet Blue Airlines, so is it enough time for Immigration, Security & Checked bags again?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Thanks ZAP
I am landing in Ft lauderdale at 4:40 pm on bahamair. My next flight is southwest at 6:55 pm. will I have enough time with checked bags to make it?
You will have to claim your bags from BahamasAir and re-check them with Southwest and go through security. You have just enough time if the BahamasAir flight is on-time and everything goes perfectly. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in the Bahamas.
I am going to travel by an emirate flight that will arrive at Terminal 4 and I then I'll have a connecting flight on Jet Blue that departs from terminal 3. Can I re-check my bags for the Jet Blue flight in the Emirates counter at terminal 4? Also, can I go from terminal 4 to 3 by walk?
You have to re-check your bags at the Jetblue counter. You can walk from 4 to 3.
Need arrival time
What airline? Go to your airline's website for up-to-date flight status.
I'm flying from GUA to FLL on Spirit flight NK 244, scheduled to arrive at 4:59PM. I have a connecting flight through Delta DL 1615 that is scheduled to depart at 6PM. I will only have a backpack, so no checked luggage.

Some google searches tell me I will arrive at Gate H and leave out of Gate D. I understand I will need to go through customs, but I have Global Entry.

Assuming the flight arrives on time, is one hour enough to get through customs with global entry and run from terminal 4 to terminal 2?
With global entry you have just enough time if everything goes perfectly and you check in for your Delta flight online and run to Terminal 2. This is very risky.
We arrive from Mexico on Southwest to FLL with 90 minutes to connecting flight on Southwest. Do they have a transit area for bags and security. Do we have enough time?
I don't know what you mean by "a transit area". You have just enough time for your connection.
I heard some airports/airlines that have a transit place to recheck bags without going out and through security again
None in the US do.
Hi. I'm trying to arrive on Spirit from ATL at 11:54 AM (not sure what terminal, guessing 4), and connect to a jetBlue flight to CTG (Cartagena, Colombia), which departs at 1:36PM from Terminal 3. So, it's about 1 hour 40 mins. I will NOT have checked baggage.
Will I have to go through security again?
Think I'll make it?

You won't have to go through security again if you can check into your JetBlue flight online. You have just enough time.
Thank you for your help
