We are travelling Msp-ATL-EZE (BUenos AIres) with Delta. The connection when we come back has a 1 hour 30 min. layover. Would that be enough time to make it from International Terminal to Domestic, considering we have to pick up our luggage and go thru Customs??
It will be tight, however, the EZE-ATL flight gets in very early in the morning so Immigration shouldn't be very busy then and even if you do miss your connection, Delta has an entire day's worth of ATL-MSP flights you can be rebooked on.
I am flying from JFK to St. Petersburg, Russia with a change of planes in Moscow(SVO) All flights are on Aeroflot and arrive and depart from terminal D in Moscow. Do I have to go through customs and security after I arrive in Moscow, and can the change of planes be done in 1 hour and 45 minutes? I am very concerned about making this connection. Any tips would be appreciated.
As an international arrival at Sheremetyevo Airport, you need to follow signs to the Arrivals Hall, go through passport control, complete the immigration card and proceed to the baggage claim area claiming their bags and take it to customs control where your bags may be be inspected; thereafter, re-check-in your bags & proceed to your connecting flight. You have enough transfer time.
suapr13, have you actually made this transfer at SVO?
We are traveling May 2 from Denver to Edinburgh (both non-Schengen) on Lufthansa transfering planes in Frankfurt. The flight to Frankfurt appears to arrive at either C or Z gates and the flight to Edinburgh (also Lufthansa) appears to leave from B gates. We have only a one hour layover in Frankfurt. What's the best/fastest way to get from C to B or from Z to B and will we have to go through pasport control and/or security? Thanks for any help you can offer.
Lufthansa uses Terminal 1, Concourses A & B at FRA; today's Denver flight is listed as '1B'; while the Edinburgh flight is '1A'. On Arrival at FRA you need to go through non-Schengen immigration /customs clearance before proceeding to your connecting gate on level 3. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra; then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
Want to pick up someone at Terminal w/o parking. Best way to do it.
Most airports have a thing called a "cell phone lot" - you wait there in your car for the person you're picking up to call you, and then you drive up to the arrival area of the terminal to pick them up.
I am considering a flight from Toronto to San Juan in December that connects through JFK. The layover is only 45 minutes but we can go through US customs in Pearson airport in Toronto so we can avoid that at JFK however the flight from Toronto arrives in terminal 2 and the flight to San Juan departs from terminal 4. Is the 45 minutes enough considering we don't have to clear customs? Both flights are with the same carrier so the bags should go all the way through.
Both flights would be with Delta I assume? If so it's possible to make the connection, but be aware that JFK is pretty delay prone. However there is an airside shuttle between Terminal 2 and Terminal 4 so you can make the connection without having to go back through security. So, assuming your first flight is on-time, it's possible, barely.
Here's how a tour agency booked my 82-year old Mom thru Dullus: Sunday 4/07 arrive from Cleveland 11:40AM at gate A3G. Depart Dullus on UA for JFK at 12:17PM from Gate D4. Only 37 min. Is this even possible? I'm thinking not ...
At IAD Dulles Airport, the Underground Aerotrain runs in a continuous loop from the main terminal's post-security area to the center of the midfield concourses A/B (A gates) and C/D (C gates), takes minutes, but presently does not serve the D gates; A gates are connected by walkway to the main terminal, and the shuttle bus to the D gates is located on the Main Terminal's lower level (to the right of the passenger walkway to A& B gates). I don't consider 37 mins adequate time for anyone, let alone an elderly person.
