We are arriving with Southwest from Havana at 3:45pm, next flight to BWI is at 6:05pm also with Southwest. Is there sufficient time to clear immigration and customs and recheck bags?
Yes, that should be enough time. The hard part will be getting from Terminal 4 where you arrive to the far end of Terminal 1 where you depart, but I'm sure Southwest has something set up for these connections.
Hi! I'm flying in from Bogota into Fort Lauderdale on a JetBlue flight and should land at 4:06 PM on a Thursday. I'm considering a SouthWest flight from FLL to Atlanta departing at 4:50. I know it'd be pushing it but I've never come back into the country through FLL. I'm a US citizen and if customs went smoothly, think I'd be able to make it? Thanks!
That would be completely impossible. Note only do you have to go through US Immigration and Customs, you have to go to the complete opposite end of the airport and through security. Zero chance.
My grandson is flying as an unaccompanied minor on SW leaving at 2:30. I am leaving at 5:00 for LA on Jet Blue. In order to see him off at the gate, I need to go through security. I am also checking a bag at Jet Blue. How is the best way to do this?
Terminals 1 and 3 are not connected inside security and you won't be allowed through security in T1 with your checked bag. You'll have to stop at T3 first to check your bag, then go to T1 and see off your grandson, then go back to T3 and through security and to your departure gate.
Hi, we have 2 separate tickets flying from ORD to FLL via Spirit then running to our 2nd flight FLL to FPO flying bahamas air. It appears to be arriving terminal 4 going to 3. We are not checking bags. We have about 45 min. How far is the walk between terminals? Are we going to make it?
I really don't think that's enough time. Especially considering that Spirit flights are frequently delayed.
We are flying to treasure cay with a layover in ft lauderdale. The flight we are thinking about booking only allows for an hour to deplane go through customs and board. Will this be enough time to get through customs? It's Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.
I assume the first flight is on Silver Airways. What airline is the second flight on? Is it all one reservation?
My friends and I already have a round trip ticket booked from CLT to FLL and want to do the drive from Fort Lauderdale to Key West on the way there. On the way back, on a Sunday - we want to book a one way flight from Key West to Fort Lauderdale (we won't be checking bags or anything). Our flight from FLL to CLT leaves at 6:45 on American Airlines ... we can either play it safe and land in FLL at 3:40, or we can leave Key West at 5:03 on United and land in FLL at 6:02 (then run to our 6:45 flight). Is that way too close? Thank you!
Sorry I meant to say Silver Airways for the one way from Key West to FLL. Thanks
Play it safe and book the earlier flight. Silver Airways flights are often delayed.
