  • Enough Time?
    Aug 9, 2015
    My wife and I, both Canadians, arrive in Fort lauderdale by cruise ship on October 17 at 7:00am . Do we have time to make a connecting flight to Toronto leaving at 12:20pm?


    That would be a question for your cruise line. People disembark in groups and depending on your luck and the size of the ship. You may not be allowed to disembark for awhile.


  • Layover between Oslo and Tampa
    Jul 28, 2015
    Hello I'am arriving at FLL at 20 pm on August 17th from an international flight from Oslo. My flight to Tampa is departing at 9.50 pm. Would you guys judge that 1 hour and 50 minutes layover is enough to catch my flight to Tampa? I'm flying with Norwegian to FLL and arriving at Terminal 3, I think. I'm flying with Spirit from Terminal 4 to Tampa. What is the quikest way from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4? Walking or the shuttle bus?


    I should mention that the two flights are not on the same reservation, thus I have to check in my baggage again at FLL.


    by "20 pm" do you mean 8 PM aka 2000? Walking is the quickest way from T3 to T4 but it will be very hard to make your connection, especially if you have checked baggage.


    Thank you for your response. Yes, I mean 8 pm. Guess my only hope right now is hoping the Norwegian flight arrives before schedule as it often does according to flightaware.com and that the Spirit flight is delayed. But good to know that walking (aka running) is the quickest way to get to terminal 4 from 3.


  • jet blue to silver airways (3M)

    I am flying From Richmond, Va and arrive in Fort Lauderdale at 10:01 am, I will not have any checked bags just carryon. I fly out of FLL to key west at 11:35 am. Will I have enough time to get off JetBlue and check in to 3M.


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Southwest-Spirit Transfer
    Apr 2, 2015
    My SW flight lands at 11am, my Spirit flight departs at 12noon. Will I have time to check a bag and make my flight to Santo Domingo?


    NO! Zero Chance. You need to find an earlier flight to FLL or fly in the previous day.


  • help through customs with bags
    Feb 25, 2015
    I have 3 bags to go through customs in Ft. Lauderdale to then connect to a flight in Term 2. Is there help to deal with the bags


    There might be porters available. They work for tips.


  • Silver Airways to Southwest
    Aug 7, 2014
    How much time do I need to get from Silver Airways Terminal 1 Concouse C to Southwest Airlines Terminal 1 Concouse B? Do I have to go through the TSA screening between the concourses? I have 50 minutes between landing and takeoff and hope it's enough time. Thanks for any help.


    Yes, you will have to go through TSA between concourses. If you plan on having checked bags you have no chance to make that connection in 50 minutes. With carry-ons you will barely make it if your Silver flight is on-time, your silver flight is domestic or has preclerance, and you check-in for your Southwest flight online.


  • meet
    Jul 26, 2014
    I am arriving in Ft. Lauderdale on usairways flight and my mother is arriving on southwest flight. She is 85 and will be needing wheel chair assistance. How is the best way to meet her?


    Contact Southwest at least 48 hrs prior to her departure stating that you need a wheelchair for her on arrival, and that she is to be taken to the information counter in the Arrivals area, where you will pick her up (after taking the shuttle bus from T3). If the Airline is not willing to do so, arrive well ahead of time of her arrival, get a wheelchair at the airline counters with a visitor pass, enabling you to pick her up at the arrival gate. (Upon your arrival at Terminal 3, you will need to board the shuttle bus to Terminal 1 and meet her there.


  • directions to silver air from Jet Blue
    Jul 23, 2014
    I have luggage & carry on--will Jet Blue transfer my luggage, since this was a one price trip From Newark


    If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be checked through to your final destination and you won't have to claim them in FLL as JetBlue and Silver Airways have an interline baggage agreement. You, however have to go from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 for your Silver Airways flight. You can walk along the curbfront or take the rental car shuttle between terminals.
