  • Barbados to FLL to BWI
    Nov 2, 2016
    Flying into FLL from Barbardos arriving 4:19 pm. Trying to catch another flight to BWI that leaves at 6:52 pm. Is 2.5 hrs enough time to get through customs, recheck bags and get through security. FLL to BWI is separate reservation from BGI to FLL.


    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    From punta canta landing in fll at 6:51pm with checked bags on jet blue. Needing to make next flight out in spirit at 8:05pm to Myrtle beach. Is this impossible? Do I have a chance to make this in 1hour and 15mins ?


    Yes, that will be more or less impossible. Plan on spending the night in Fort Lauderdale and buy a flight the next day if you already have the JetBlue flight.


  • Spirit Airline Transfer in FLL
    Nov 2, 2016
    I will take Spirit flight from EWR to FLL this Sat. morning then take another Spirit flight from FLL to Aruba. There are 2hr20min between those two flights. Would I have enough time to pickup the luggage then check in then pass the custom in FLL? Thanks.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Yes, both flights are on the same reservation. I thought the same that my luggage should be transfered to Aruba directly. I couldn't even find a customer service Phone# for Spirit Airline to call. so I emailed Spirit Airline Customer support but they told me I have to pickup my luggage after arrival @FLL then re-check in the luggage again and pass the security inspection. Maybe I should call Spirit Airline @Newark airport to confirm? Thanks!


    Whoever emailed you is confused - you do that when entering the country from a location that doesn't have preclearance, not when leaving the country. Also when you return to the US you won't have to do that because Aruba has US Immigration and customs preclearance.


    ZAP, Thank you for your comments and that helps a lot. Do you know if the international and domestic flights are all together in FLL Terminal 4? Just want to know if I can just walk from arrival gate to the departure gate without take security check point.


    Yes, all gates in Terminal 4 are connected inside security.


  • 1 hour atl-fll, fll-sjo
    Oct 30, 2016
    I have one hour with no checked bag to arrive at fll from atl and depart from fll to sjo. Can I make it?


    Spirit for all flights


    Anyone? Help?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Fort Lauderdale is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Customs Time
    Oct 25, 2016
    Hello I arrive on Spirit Sunday November 6th from Cancun at 6:57p terminal 4 with no checked bags. Do I have enough time to clear customs and make the 8:10p flight to Myrtle Beach also on Spirit?


    That will be really difficult although not impossible with no checked bags as long as the flight from Cancun is on-time.


  • Time for connection flights
    Oct 20, 2016
    Hi, I will fly in to FLL internationally, arriving terminal 4, and will then have a connecting domestic flight with 2hours and 20mins between the flights. If I have to go through security and passport/visa and perhaps change terminal, will that be enough time?? I do not want to risk missing my flight, but next departure is next morning so not too keen on spending night in the airport either... Any help please!


    What airlines are you flying?


    Flying in with Norwegian from Copenhagen and departure with Spirit to Atlanta


    If you have checked bags there's very little chance you will make that. Without checked bags it's possible if everything goes perfectly.


  • Spirit connection time 35 minutes
    Oct 19, 2016
    Curious if we will have enough time from 1 flight to another in fort lauderdale? We are flying Spirit with 35 minutes in between flights?


    Domestic flights - coming from tampa, and going to DFW


    It's enough time if the first flight is on-time, But it leaves no time to spare.


  • Enough time to connect from Nassau(Jetblue) to SWA?
    Oct 12, 2016
    Arriving international (JetBlue) from Nassau at 8:08 AM on Sat 11/12, no checked bags. I am hoping to catch a Southwest flight at 9:20AM to Las Vegas. Will 78 minutes will be enough to clear customs, get to a new terminal and go through security?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Nassau. So all you have to do in FLL is go from your arrival terminal to Terminal 1 and go through security. You have just enough time if the flight from Nassau is on-time. Check in for your Southwest flight online before leaving the Bahamas.


  • 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
    Oct 7, 2016
    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...

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.
