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.
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.
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.
