  • Transit visa (ESTA) needed?
    Sep 6, 2016
    I will fly from Cartagena with Spirit Airlines and then have a connecting flight 4 hours later with Norwegian to Oslo. Between the flights I need to fetch my luggage and check in again. I am a German citizen. Will I need a visa for that?


    You do need to complete ESTA (Germans do not require a true visa enter or transit the US).


  • Where could my elderly folks get some rest between flights?
    Aug 7, 2016
    My elderly folks are flying from NYC to Columbia, arriving around midnight with their next flight to Columbia early the next morning. They're both 80 and I'm wondering where they could get a bit of sleep either in the lounges or very close by. Any help much appreciated.


    There are no overnight lounges at FLL. They have to either wait in the baggage claim level of their terminal or get a hotel. For a few hours it's probably just best for them to wait in the baggage claim area.


  • 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.
