    i am travelling from sydney Aus to lax...then to denver then back to my home in i need to clear US customs in LA, my connection is about 2-3 hoours to Denver


    1. On arrival at LAX you need to go (at Terminal B (TBIT) through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. Do make sure that your airlines will forward baggage to each segment of your flight. 2. Depending on which Airline you arrive at at LAX and which airline you will use to depart from, you may have to switch transfer among two of the eight LAX terminals. 3. If you arrive via Qantas Airlines, you arrive at Terminal 4 (T4), where you will be picked up by special shuttle to the TBIT (TB) Terminal for customs procedure. Thereafter, exit the terminal and take the the blue-marked LAX bus route A on lower arrivals level island in front of TBIT, under sign "LAX Shuttle Airline Connection", which runs every 12-15 mins, making its first stop at T4 to T8, over to T1, T2 & T3, before returning to TBIT. On arrival at LAX, look at the overhead screen to find your connecting flight & gate number. Gate numbers correspond to Terminals, i.e., T4 has gates 42-49, T3 30-39, etc. You have enough time for transfer.

  • what is airport id ?
    May 29, 2012
    can one suggest how this works ?


    Each Airport has a three-letter code. If you open, you see on top under "Airport Search" 'Find an Airport': Type in the name of your desired Airport and it will show you the name & code. Once you know the code & you want to find Airport information (terminals, parking, etc.), you merely use[and code].

  • 16 years old I.D. needed
    May 5, 2012
    I am traveling from N.J. to Fla. with my daughter and 3 friends. What I.D. do the 15 and 16 year olds need if I am not their parent.


    While a school ID will suffice for youth on domestic flights, to be on the safe side, a letter of authorization with address & telephone number from each parent may also help.


  • Expired License, Valid Passport
    May 29, 2012
    I live in Florida for school, but I am from New Jersey. My license expired while I have been out here in FL, & I am going home to visit my family & renew my license. can I use my passport as my form of ID even if I am just traveling from FL to NJ? Thanks for your help in advance.


    Your passport can take you anywhere.




  • fast lanes for electronic passports
    May 1, 2012
    i saw that there were some sort of electronic booths during my last international travel. I am traveling to mexico is there a faster lane or electronic service to expedite the security or customs long lines using the newer electronic passports?


    Yes, a number of major Airports have already installed those electronic booths. I don't recall which ones, but read that you need to file an application - I think with the TSA - and pay for a year in advance for the clearance card, which entitles you to faster customs procedures.


  • 16 yr old

    16 yo traveling from NJ to Ca with adult. Is a birth cert adequate ID, I do not have a drivers license or passport


    If the accompanying adult bought both your tickets - your birth certificate will be fine. If you bought separate tickets, you need a passport for Canada.


  • Equipment carnet
    Apr 17, 2012
    Is Mobile airport customs open on Sundays? We need to get a filming equipment carnet document stamped on departure. Will we have to get it re-stamped at Atlanta airport where the crew connect to London?


    I suggest you contact MOB Airport at - tel. (251) 633-4510. I doubt that you will have to get restamp at ATL as you only transfer.


  • U.S. Customs
    Apr 17, 2012
    We are flying from St. John's, NL (YYT) to Orlando, FLA (MCO) through Newark via United Airlines. Where do we go through U.S. Customs? Is it in Newark or in Orlando? I'd like to know in case we need to allow more time in Newark. Thanks


    As YYT has no US Customs clearance, you need - on arrival at Terminal C of EWR - to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through Customs Clearance, and re-check-in your bag, before moving on to your connecting flight - that will take 30-45 mins. Look up your departing gate on the overhead screens and walk to your connecting gate - no transfer needed.
