  • Southwest to Delta connector
    Apr 28, 2016
    I fly into FLL on southwest and out on Delta, how much time do I need to make my connecting flight? 1 hour?


    With checked bags I recommend at least 2.5 hours. Without checked bags, 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours. They are in different terminals that are not connected inside security.

    Hi, I can buy a prepaid sim card with data plan on airport any time?


    No, that is not a common thing at US Airports. There are plenty of cell phone stores not far from the airport.


  • Silver Airways to Southwest

    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.

    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

    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.


    How long does this transfer between terminals take? Is an hour and 10 minutes enough time (without checked bags) to make a connection? We are traveling from NYC to FLL on Jetblue and from FLL to Key West on Silver Airways. Thank you!
