  • International return flight with 80 minute connection
    Oct 9, 2016
    We are scheduled to land at FLL from Cancun at 7pm. And our connecting flight is at 8:20pm. We are flying with spirit landing in H and departing G. Is 80 minutes enough time to get through customs and recheck luggage?


    That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly. Pack some extra clothes in your carry-on and be prepared to spend the night in the Ft. Lauderdale airport.


  • connection

    Arriving from the DR to FLL on Jet blue at 6:51(T4); connecting on Southwest for 8:45 flight (T1) is that enough time to get through immigration and customs, get checked baggage, recheck and get to gate?


    That will be really difficult, bordering on impossible.


  • International - Domestic connection
    Oct 5, 2016
    I am planning on connecting in FLL on a Sunday (Nov.6th) from an international flight (SNU - Cuba) by JetBlue to probably Terminal 4 at 3:00pm, and will be departing from Terminal 3 (JetBlue) at 4:30pm. Will 1.5 hours will be enough to get checked bags and pass through CBP and recheck them? Or would it better to travel with no checked bags in order to make it on time?? Any suggestions? Thanks!!


    I have US passport and the connecting departure flight (4:30pm - Jetblue) will be domestic (to SJU - Puerto Rico). Thanks!


    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.


  • 1 hour to change terminal 3 to 4 ?
    Oct 1, 2016
    Hi, i just forget to see the arrived terminal for Spirit from Santo DOmingo ( is T 3) and then need to conect to Quito, from terminal 4 (JEtblue) ... i need to do it in 1 hour, can i do it ?


    i wil travel with No checked bag


    No, that's not enough time for an International to International connection in FLL on two separate airlines, even without checked bags.


  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 in 68 minutes?
    Sep 30, 2016
    Arriving from Barbados JetBlue international flight 386 at 4:37pm in terminal 4 with no checked luggage. If flight is not time, can I make it in 68 minutes to Southwest terminal 1 for 5:45pm domestic flight to New Orleans?


    Sorry, meant to write "If flight is ON time..."


    Even without checked bags I don't think that's enough time.


  • Bimini to FLL connection
    Sep 26, 2016
    Silver to FLL supposed to arrive 3:03, clear customs and recheck bags with Southwest. How much connection time do I need? What is best way to get to SW terminal from Silver's terminal? How much time to add for that?


    I would want at least 2.5 hours for your connection, especially considering that Silver isn't known for being on-time.


  • Do I have enough time
    Sep 23, 2016
    Hi there! Im a little bit worried about something... I book a flight from Panama City, Panama Monday 26th arrives 4:03pm T4 and I have to change terminals to recheck bags and take a flight to Seattle that departs at 6:55pm from T1, do you think I will be ok... Im traveling with my 4 years old... I think we can make it, however still Im worried


    Yes, it's possible but, as you suspect, it doesn't leave much time to spare.


  • Connection Southamerica - Europe
    Sep 21, 2016
    Hi everyone, I have a flight from Bogotá via FLL to Oslo with Spirit and Norwegian Airlines. I have a European passport and checked in bags so I'll need to go through immigration, customs, everything. I have a bit less than 3 hours, I arrive at 7pm and leave close to 10pm - can I make it? Any tips?


    With the late evening arrival that should be just possible assuming the flight from Bogota is on-time. If it is late do not expect Norwegian to be particularly accommodating.


  • MYR to FLL then FLL to SJO
    Sep 20, 2016
    Flying Spirit, booked reservation all in one. On December 9th we have an 8 AM flight out of Myrtle Beach arriving in Fort Lauderdale at 9:50, departing flight leaves at 10:50 AM. Since I booked on Spirit I figured the hour in between would be sufficient, but want some confirmation. Is the connection feasible? If we missed the flight - would Spirit accommodate a new one since it was their connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Yes, if you miss your connection they will rebook you on the next available Spirit flight to San Jose, which probably wouldn't be until the next day.


    Thanks so much!

    HI, My wife and I are returning from the Caribbean on Jan 1st 2017,with two infants. Arriving at FLL 3:35 pm on Caribbean AIlines Terminal 4. Would we be able to make it through customs etc to get onto a (domestic) AA flight that leaves at 5:15. (She and the kids are US citizens and I am a green card holder.)


    coming in from Trinidad and flying to LAX vic CLT in case this helps. Should we book it? (It's very difficult to find another flight that works)


    No, that would not be reasonably possible.


  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 with checked bags
    Sep 16, 2016
    Arriving from DFW at 9:43 AM on Spirit, and departing at 12:30PM Silver to ELH. Is this going to be difficult? Separate reservations.


    That should be enough time if the Spirit flight is close to on-time. It's probably fastest to take the Rental Car Shuttle from T4 to T1.


    Thank you for kind help and the extra tip!


  • arrivât terminal 3, départirez terminal 1
    Sep 14, 2016
    arrival from Canada, customs will be cleared in Canada, west jet. Terminal 3 departure from terminal 1 with Gulfstream, to Marsh Arbour.. 45 min connection! baggage + enough?? do I have to clear the luggage or they are tranbsfer?? easy connection ??


    As far as I know Westjet and Silver Airways do not have an interline agreement and you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1. This connection is completely impossible.


    thank you!!


  • Step by step - international travel

    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.
