  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1
    Mar 1, 2016
    I am flying in on an air canada flight (will have already cleared customs) at terminal 2 at 1903 and have a connecting flight with silver at 1955. Will this be enough time, will my bags be checked through to final destination?


    Air Canada and Silver Airways do not have an interline baggage agreement, so you will have to claim them from Air Canada and take them to silver to re-check. It will be very difficult for you to make it to the Silver counter before the bag check cutoff, even though their flights are frequently late.

    I am booked on a Spirit flight from MGA to FLL, knowing that I must clear customs in FLL, will I have enough time to catch my connecting flight to Orlando? Times: Arrive FLL 5:59am Sunday morning Depart for MCO at 7:05. One checked bag.


    It's not impossible but everything has to go perfectly for it to work. On the good side, I believe the flight from Managua is the first arrival into FLL in the morning so you shouldn't have any lines at immigration.

    Have an hour layover with only a carry on is that enough time? Spirit from Jamaica and Jet blue to LAX


    flight gets there at 5:45 and leaves at 7


    No, I don't think that will be possible unless your Spirit flight arrives quite early. You will have to go through US Immigration and Customs, change terminals, and go through security.

    We will have an hour and twenty minutes layover at FLL. Tickets with Spirit from Bogota, Col to Denver, CO. Is that enough time? We have bags checked. Thanks


    That's barely enough time, but considering the early arrival, you should be OK.


  • Jamaica - FLL - SFO connection time
    Feb 24, 2016
    We land into FLL on Jet Blue in the international terminal at 5:19pm. We leave out of Terminal 3 at 7:03pm (connection time 1 hr 44 mins). Is that long enough to clear customs, change terminals, and get to our flight? We may or may not have bags. Thank you!


    That should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.

    Flight from Mexico City to FLL with JetBlue arriving 0940, departing FLL to NY LaGuardia 1120 with Spirit. Possible with checked baggage? No idea if it involves a terminal change (advice welcome here too!). Thanks


    I really wouldn't try this with checked baggage. The chances you'll be stuck in FLL with no onward transport are very high. If you miss your connection Spirit will do nothing to accommodate you.

    Arriving JetBlue from Medellin at 10:30am departing Air Canada to Toronto at noon. Checked bag. Any chance?


    No, I don't think that would be reasonably possible with checked baggage. There's no way you'd be able to get your bag to the Air Canada check-in counter before the bag cutoff.

    I am flying Silver from ELH scheduled to land at FLL at 12:30PM midweek. My Delta flight is at 2:30PM. is 2 hours enough for customs and terminal change? thanks


    In theory it's enough time, but Silver is late more often than not.


    Ok, thanks. will ty to rebook to give some wiggle room!

    Hey Im flying in from Key west solo and arrive at 7:15 on Silver airways. My spirit air flight leaves at 8:09. No bags is this possible?


    Never, EVER depend on Silver Airways to be on-time. Even if it was on-time, this would be incredibly difficult.


  • Does 1.5 hours good enough from terminal 1 to terminal 2
    Feb 16, 2016
    I will arrive FLL terminal 1 by United Airline from Houston at 7:15pm and will depart at 8:45pm from terminal 2 by Air Canada. Do you think I have enough time?


    With no checked baggage, yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1

    Is 45 minutes enough time to make a Silver Airways flight leaving from Terminal 1 if I'm flying in to Terminal 2 on a Delta flight? Carry-only, going to Key West so all domestic. Thank you!


    It's not impossible but it leaves no time to spare and you'll have to hope the security lines in T1 are short.


    Thanks ZAP. Forgot about having to go back thru security. Appreciate the response.

    Hi. I land at gate E9 on Norwegian from Copenhagen at 8:00PM and depart from Terminal 1 with Southwest to Baltimore. I have checked bags. Can I make it?


    You didn't post your departure time. Without it I can't answer your question.


    Sorry! I land at 8:00PM and depart at 10:10PM. Can I make it?


    I won't say it's impossible, but with checked bags it will be very very difficult. I personally wouldn't try it.

    I am arriving from Port au Prince on Jet Blue and would have 2 hours 15 minutes to make my next flight on Southwest. Is this enough time to go through customs, get baggage, get to Terminal 1 and recheck bags and get through security and to the gate. The arrival time is 2:18 pm on Jet Blue and the departure time would be 4:30 on Southwest.


    Everything would have to go perfectly for you to make this in time.


  • 65 minutes to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 4
    Feb 4, 2016
    I know many people have asked about it, but I still want to "hear" your opinion. I'll arrive to FLL at 9:25 with Southwest, the connection flight is at 10:35 with Spirit. What do you think? Can I make it? Normally how long does it take to go through security, pick up your bag, go to another terminal, drop your bag, and go through security again?


    With a checked bag, this would be impossible.
