  • What time is required to transfer from Jet Blue to Silver Airlines
    Jun 20, 2016
    Arriving on Jet Blue at 14:52 and going to book Silver leaving at 15:45 to Key West, which is a gap of 53 minutes. Can we book checked bags right through? Are these flights in the same terminal? Is there enough time as no other flights to Key West until next day?


    Are your flights on the same reservation? They are not in the same terminal - you have to go to Terminal 1 and through security.


    Thank you Zap. I have not booked the Silver flight yet as wanted to know if possible before buying ticket. I think I will drive to Key West as not enough time to change terminal and go through security. Thanks for the information.


  • Connecting to Tri rail
    Jun 17, 2016
    My flight lands at 9:20 pm and the Tri rail leaves at 10:13 (the last ride of the night). If I have no checked bags and am flying in from dallas is that enough time?


    If your flight is on-time and you run, you might make it - the shuttle leaves Terminals 3/4 at 9:40 http://www.tri-rail.com/connection-maps/032516_FLA1_Route.pdf


  • OSL-FLL-Panama
    Jun 2, 2016
    Hi. No domestic flights here. Going from Oslo to FLL with Norwegian (terminal 3), and arriving at 8 pm. Then flight to Panama with Spirit at 11:25 pm (terminal 4). No luggage. 3:25 hours seemed to be enough until I read about the waiting times at the passport control? What is your opinion? Thanks in advance


    With no checked bags you should have enough time as long as the flight from Oslo is on-time.


  • Making my Flight
    Jun 4, 2016
    I fly in FLL on Spirit and arrive Friday at 6am at Term 4 with checked bag. I have a departing flight from FLL to Barbados on Jet Blue that departs at 815am. Will I have enough time to grab my bag and recheck it with JetBlue and make it through TSA for my flight? And is it quicker to hustle and run from Term 4 to Term 3 or take the shuttle?


    The fastest way is to run. Is your inbound Spirit flight domestic or international?


    Hey Zap, It is Domestic. Coming in from Vegas.


    Then I think you might just have enough time if the Spirit flight is on-time.


    I made it in time! I checked a bag as well. The Spirit flight arrived super earlier than expected (615am). Getting my bag took the longest. We waited 30 minutes for bags. I walked to Terminal 3. And By 655am I was waiting in line to check my bag for Badbados and apparently a BUNCH of people were waiting and the JetBlue lady asked who was going to Barbados and had use go to a separate line and check out bag before everyone else waiting in the International line. TSA was so quick. Took about 15 minutes. Had about 15 minutes to spare before boarding started. Thanks for your help.


  • Alaska Airlines Terminal 1 to BahamasAir Terminal 3
    Jun 2, 2016
    Our layover in Ft Lauderdale is 53 minutes. We need to get from Terminal 1, which appears to be where Alaska Air is, over to Terminal 3 where BahamasAir is in that time to catch our flight. Is this possible?? Can anyone advise the easiest, fastest way to accomplish that?


    That is not reasonably possible.


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 4
    Jun 2, 2016
    Hi, I will be arrive at 9:25 am at FLL in terminal 3 and my departing flight (to MedellĂ­n) is at 10:46 am in terminal 4. I do not have any checked bags, only a carry-on. How long will it take to get from terminal 3 to terminal 4? Will I have to go through any security or will I be able to go straight to my gate?


    If the first flight is domestic and on-time you should have just enough time. You will have to go through security.


  • Connecting flight
    May 10, 2016
    I start out in Houston then have a connection in new Orleans but it's the same plane (so not really a connection) but from New Orleans we fly into FLL. We have about fifty minutes to make our connection from FLL to San Jose Costa Rica. Will we have to go throuhg security again or once we go through at Houston that's it? We are flying with spirit.


    In FLL you should only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • Claim baggage in an international spirit flight
    May 6, 2016
    My mom is flying next week from Cartagena to Plattsburgh, the conection flight is in FLL. Does she have to claim baggage before clear custom ? Or they will arrive directly to Plattsburgh ? Thanks in advance.


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security, and to your departure gate.


    Thank you so much for the information


  • FLL: Caribbean to Virgin Atlantic Enough Connection Time?
    May 3, 2016
    Thinking of flying into FLL from Montego Bay on Caribbean, landing at 3:35pm. Flying out on Virgin American to LA, leaving at 6:59pm. We have a baby, but we also have GOES Trusted Traveler and TSA pre-check. Three hours and 20 minutes should be more than enough time to get through customs, collect bags, change terminals, and recheck bags/go through security, right? Thanks in advance!


    Yes, that should be enough time assuming your Caribbean flight arrives on-time.


  • Spirit Bogota-Dallas, entry Fort Lauderdale 6:45 pm Fr, departing 8:25
    Apr 30, 2016
    Hi, my wife is American citizen, I have a green card. We are flighting Spirit Bogota-Dallas, entry port Fort Lauderdale landing 6:45 pm Friday, departing at 8:22 pm. Do you think we can make it? Any advice to expedite the immigration check process? We have checked 2 bags. Thank you


    It should be just enough time if the flight from Bogota is on-time. Bring a set of clothes in your carry-on because there's a decent chance you could be stuck in FLL overnight.


    We will not check bags, that will probably give us 10 min more. Thanks for your quick response and for your time.


  • Bogota to Denver Delay
    Apr 30, 2016
    My son is traveling from Bogota to Denver on Spirit today. The Bogota flight was delayed an hour in take-off. He purchased the ticket on the Spirit website in one purchase even though connected flights at FLL. He had 1 1/2 hours layover--now that is only 45 min. Will he make it? Does he have to claim his own luggage at FLL and re-check it or do they transfer it in and go through customs in Denver? If he misses the Denver flight due to their delay, will Spirit have to put him on the next available flight to Denver?


    Please let us know if he made it! I have a layover of 1 1/2 hours at FLL. Traveling with Spirit Bogota-Dallas, trough Fort Lauderdale. Thks


    Unfortunately a delayed departure from Bogota then LONG customs line at FLL led to him missing his connection. Short on funds, he is spending the night on his luggage at FLL, waiting for flight out in a.m


    Sorry to hear that. When you have a chance, please ask him how long it took to go trough immigration process. And if he thinks I can make it with 1 1/2 hours. And let him know that I am a Colombian, living in Denver too! I am an engineer working with the lightrail RTD. Thanks


  • am i better off taking shuttle or walking
    Apr 26, 2016
    from terminal 3 to terminal 1.is the shuttle worth the wait??


    The Rental car shuttle that also takes you to T1 comes very frequently.


  • can you walk from terminal 3 to terminal 1
    Apr 25, 2016
    are there side walks from terminal 3 to terminal1 and if so how far is it?? thanks john


    Yes, there are sidewalks, but it's a long, fairly unmarked route.

  • Silver - United connection
    Apr 21, 2016
    Silver flt. departs EYW 0910 & FLL ETA is 1012. United to EWR departs 1055


    Silver and United use the same concourse. That is enough time if the Silver flight is on-time, which they often are not.
