I'm flying Jet Blue from Bahamas, it arrives at FLL at 12:35PM (Terminal 3). I'm thinking of catching a cheaper flight with Delta (Terminal 2) at 2:16PM back home. Do you think this is enough time to clear customs?
Are you coming from Nassau or Freeport or somewhere else in the Bahamas? Because if you're coming from Nassau or Freeport then you pre-clear US Immigration and customs there and don't have to in FLL. Do you have checked bags?
Thanks! Nassau. No I don't plan on checking any bags. I was able to change my flight so I have a 3 hour window to connect to my delta flight. Better to be safe than sorry!
So yeah, then all you have to do is walk from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2 and go through security. You have plenty of time.
Arriving on Emirates from Dubai into FLL at 10:55a on Saturday, Term4; connecting to JetBlue to Cancun at 1:10p, Term3. One fit traveler, backpack only with Global Entry. Is this enough time to clear both International arrival then departure? Best way to get from Term4->3?
With Global Entry and no checked bags this should be enough time. Try to check in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Dubai. Just walk to Terminal 3 - it's right next to 4.
Hi. I am arriving on Spirit from STT connecting to Emirates. Does any one know which Terminal Emirates departs from? and if the same terminal as Spirit does I need to go through security connecting? Many thanks.
Do you have checked bags? You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 4.
Hello, I am arriving from IAH at FFL in Terminal 1 at 10:36AM on a Wednesday.

I have a connecting flight from FFL to HAV (Cuba) in Terminal 3 at 12:14PM. Is this enough time to clear security at Terminal 3, or should I plan to stay the night?

NO checked bags, carry on only.

Thanks!
With no checked bags that's possible if you are able to check in online for your second flight and the first flight is on-time.
Thanks!

Would getting the fast access upgrade through security be worth it and save valuable time?
It will certainly help. I can't definitely say whether it will be "worth it" or not though.
Hi,

I hav a flight to fll from san pedro de sula arriving 05.09 am with Spirit and a connecting flight to puerto rico with jetblue at 07.20. I have one checked bag, can i make it?
That's barely enough time assuming the first flight is on-time. But it's possible.
My flight arrives to FLL from CUN (Cancun) at 7:03 PM on Jet Blue. My flight to Dubai on Emirates from FLL is at 8:20PM. Is 1hr17m enough for me to make my flight?
Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Even if it's the same reservation this connection is VERY difficult, bordering on impossible.
We are flying into FLL from Barbados. Our arrival time is 4:20pm. Want to book a United flight to Omaha that leaves at 6:40pm. Is this enough time to clear customs and change terminals? And also how to you change terminals in FLL. Also we will have 1 checked bag. Thanks for any help.
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You can walk between terminals, but it's a long walk, or you can take the shuttle to the Rental Car Center and then walk across the pedestrian bridge to Terminal 1 where United operates.
2 arrive at 10:34am in FLL and depart to Holguin Cuba at 11:05. Both Jet Blue...is this possible for us?
Yes, that is possible if the flight from Syracuse is on-time. There's obviously no time to spare if it's not.
Hi,
I arrive at FLL from DAL on Southwest at 5:40pm and depart to Quito (UIO) on JetBlue at 7:00pm. No checked baggage. Do I have enough time to go via security and make the connection? How can I get to terminal 4 from terminal 1?
Thanks.
You can either walk/run to Terminal 4 or take the Rental Car shuttle from the rental car center across the way from T1 to T4. Both will take awhile. This is barely enough time if your Southwest flight arrives on-time and you are able to check in online for your JetBlue flight.
Our SW flight from RNO arrives at 7:10 pm. My Bahamas Air flight leaves at 8:30 pm to NAS. We have checked bags. Is this enough time between flights? Our flights are on two different reservations. Will we have to claim our baggage and recheck it onto Bahamas Air ourselves? What is the minimum time between flights returning to FLL from NAS?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags and transfer it yourselves. I do not think that is enough time. I would want at least 2 hours each way.
