I am arriving from Indianapolis on Southwest Airline flight 901 on 11/7/17 what concourse will I be arriving? Also where is the baggage claim and where do I get outside to have someone pick me up???
Are there any plans to actually have a real international terminal at FLL? The delays due to trying to handle international traffic passengers without suitable facilities are really not acceptable in this day and age. A 2 hour wait for Norwegian passengers to get through is not good enough! Exiting passengers have to check in at Terminal 3 and then walk to Terminal 4 to go through security to the gate. Come on FLL, you have one of the country’s best domestic airports, I’ve been through dozens, Gear up for the future now.
Hi - is there a terminal shuttle? possibly coming in on terminal 1 and connecting to terminal 3. thanks
There are shuttles between terminals.
Are there any pet relief locations at Frt. Lauderdale airport?
I am departing from Nashville with a layover at FLL. I will have 1 hour and 5 minutes to change planes on Southwest. Will that be enough time to reach my connecting flight?
I will arrive Nov 8, late 2330 on United and want to store a bag until Nov 19. On Nov 9th I fly SOUTHWEST to Cuba about 1215. Upon my return on Nov 19 I want to pick up bag.bit I don't know which terminal United and Southwest are located. Which terminals and will bag storage places be open to keep the bag. I know there is a cost.
Can one walk to each terminal or does one have to take a skytrain? Is this airport smaller or larger than Miami. I want to arrive in Florida, spend the night and then take a flight to Puerto Rico
If you have one bag then it is easy to walk between terminals. There are also shuttle buses.
We are flying to Medellin from LGA New York, with a stop in FLL. We are flying on Spirit. We will be checking bags. We only have 1 hour and 15 minutes between our flights. Is that enough time? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time. On your way to Colombia all you have to do in FLL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I'm on a flight from Bahamas on Bahama Air that arrives in FLL at 4:40 pm. Will I have enough time to clear customs and make an Alaska Airline flight that zdeparts at 6:30 pm?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in the Bahamas. So all you have to do is claim your bags and take them to the Alaska check-in desk and go through security. You should have just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I'm arriving on Norwegian air at 7:35pm and leaving on JetBlue at 8:59pm on Wednesday 10. Jan 2018. I have checked bags. Will that be enough time to clear customs?
That is not realistically enough time.
Norwegian usually arrives at the same time as other flights and the average through time to clear is 90 minutes. This can be considerably longer when only two or three officials are working the kiosks!
