  • International Connection- Norwegian Air flight to Spirit Airlines
    Nov 3, 2015
    Hi, I'm looking at a Norwegian flight leaving from London and arriving in FLL at 21:00. The Spirit airline flight to Managua departs at 23:55. This leaves me with 2hrs55 to change terminals, clear security and re check luggage. Skypicker reassures me it's doable, however I'm worried about the distance between terminals, should I be concerned?


    It should be possible as long as the Norwegian flight is on-time. Norwegian and Spirit's terminals are right next to each other.

    My question is,as a Turkish citizen,I will take a flight from Sweden to FLL,and then I wıll change the airline to Spirit to take another flight to Medellin,Colombia.Do I need transit visa for this? Even if I need,can I just walk to the plane if I dont check any luggage? Thanks a lot in advance


    Yes, you will need a transit visa and at least 3 hours between flights.


  • International to Domestic connection on Spirit
    Jan 9, 2015
    Hi, looking at a Spirit itinerary from San Jose, CR to DFW via Fort Lauderdale; the flight from SJO is schedule to arrive at FLL at 6:01am, and the connecting flight to DFW is scheduled to depart at 7:05. Not checking any bags. Seems like a very tight int'l-to-domestic connection to me, though presumably it's "legal" or they wouldn't be offering to ticket it on one itinerary. Couple questions: 1) Could this potentially be enough time to make the connection? I'm flying on a US passport and have Global Entry, so Customs & Immigration hopefully should not take long. 2) After clearing Customs, will I have to reclear security for the connection?


    Yes, it is very tight but having global entry and no checked bags will help. Yes, you will have to go through security after clearing customs.


  • JetBlue Connecting Flights
    Jan 5, 2015
    I'm flying Jetblue from NY to Costa Rica connecting in FLL next Saturday. Flight lands at 9:17a at FLL and my next flight out leaves at 9:45a. A Jetblue rep told me if there was a problem they'd contact me but I'm worried as I'm traveling alone with an infant. I'm hoping I leave from the same terminal. How risky is this?


    Both flight should be in Terminal 3, but yes, your itinerary leaves very little time to spare if your flight from NY is late at all (which is common).


  • Terminal 3 to 1
    Nov 10, 2014
    Hi arriving from Jamaica at terminal 3 Jet blue 4:35pm and connecting to silver to departing at 6:05 to Jax. First time doing connection flights is this enough time and how do i get from terminal to terminal. help


    It's really pushing it. You'll have to take the Rental Car shuttle to the Consolidated rental facility and then take the walkway to T1.


    since its international arrival its terminal 4 so how bad is it from there. what is a tram?


    There are no trams in FLL. I didn't mention a tram. Taking the shuttle bus and walking to T1 should take 20 minutes or so from the time you exit customs.


  • 3 hours - SouthWest - Norwegian Connection?
    Oct 27, 2014
    Hi, If I'm arriving on SouthWest from SJU at 20:00, with checked luggage, can I sensibly make the 23:00 Norwegian flight out to LGW? This would be on a Monday in Feb 2015, if that makes any difference. Will this involve a terminal change? I assume Puerto Rican flights are considered domestic, so even as a UK national I'll only have to clear immigration and customs on the outbound flight to London - is this correct? There is an inbound Spirit flight 2 hours earlier, but 5 hours seems a bit over cautious for the connection?


    Yes, flights from Puerto Rico to the Continental US are domestic flights. You won't have to go through any immigration procedures in Fort Lauderdale. This does involve a change of terminals. You will arrive in Terminal 1, have to claim your bags from Southwest, then take them to Terminal 3 to check with Norwegian. 3 hours should be enough time. But considering neither carrier would be accomodating if you missed your connection, I would book the 5 hour connection personally.
