  • security area shuttle bus.

    How often does security area shuttle run (time interval)? Also, how long does the shuttle take from Terminal F to terminal A?

     

    The Shuttle runs almost constantly - lots of people use it. It will take maybe 15 minutes to get to Terminal A.

     

  • Connecting Flights Advice

    Hi, This is only my second time flying and I'm doing so alone, so I'm quite nervious/anxious. I'm looking for any advice cause the internet can only do so much.. My carrier for both flights is United. My flight leaves Pittsburgh at 5:23am & is scheduled to arrive at 7:03am. It says the flight is United Express. From what I gathered it will be arriving in Terminal C (Level 1). I got this information from Newark Flight status. I then have a 53 minute connecting time. My second flight departs Newark at 7:56am for Ft.Lauderdale. Operated by United, flight status says out of Terminal C (Guessing Level 2 or 3). What is the process for this? I've never done connecting flights before, and I know the time frame isn't the biggest of gaps. Should I be okay? I arrive then what do I have to do, check in? Go through security again? Any information is helpful, encouraged, and appreciated. Thank you

     

    Yes, the 5:23 AM flight from PIT to EWR arrives in terminal C and all flights to FLL depart from Terminal C. All you have to do is follow the signs from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You can download the United App to your phone and it will help you by giving you the location of your second gate and if the flight is on-time or not. You do not have to go through security or do anything. You will get both boarding passes when you check-in online or at the airport in Pittsburgh or even on the app.

     

  • 1.10 layover from AMS to MCO via IAH
    Mar 5, 2015

    Hi, I have a flight booked from AMS to MCO (LH7987 operated by United) on May 1. ETA on IAH is14:45 at terminal E, connecting flight (U1644) depatures at 15:55 from terminal C. So a layover of 1.10 with 2 kids. Is that layover realistic, dealing with migration, bagage claim and transfer, transfer to gate , getting out of the plan etc? Thanks!

     

    No, that is not realistic. You need at least 90 minutes, preferably a little longer, to make that connection.

    Hi there I've never flown into IAD before and my connection time from IAD to Duabi is only 1:15 mins I don't have checked luggage is this enough time? I'm so worried that my arrival and departure gates will be in different terminals/concourses

     

    IAD only has one Terminal. All gates are connected inside security. Worst case is you will have to take a short shuttle or train ride to concourse C/D where your flight to Dubai will depart (assuming you are flying United to Dubai). You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

     

  • Layover from YOW to SJU, and SJU to YYZ
    Mar 5, 2015

    Hello, I'm about to book a flight from YOW to SJU (YOW to IAD (UA3375) then IAD to SJU (UA1202)) and the return is from SJU to YYZ (SJU to IAD (UA1722), then IAD to YYZ (UA3371). The two trips have an one hour and 51 min layover, respective. I'm not sure whether this is enough time (given the flights are all on time). Are you able to help verify whether the gate to SJU in IAD is in a close enough area, that I could make the flight? Or is it cutting it too close? Any help is greatly appreciated!

     

    That should be possible. On your way to SJU you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. You may have to take a short shuttle or train ride from concourse A where you may arrive to concourse C or D where you will depart. All gates at IAD are connected inside security You have enough time both ways if your flights are on-time.

     

    Thank you so much!!! Here's hoping it all goes well :)

     

  • Terminal D to E connection time

    I have 2:40 hours between my arrival from Belize and then to catch the BA flight back to London - is that sufficient time? Do we need to clear customs? How long does it take to transfer?

     

    Did you book your tickets separately or together. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with British Airways then go through security. You should have barely enough time.

     

    i book the tickets separetly

     

    how much time do you think it will take then? flight arrives at 3pm on Tues 10th March and BA departs 5:40pm on same day ie 2:40 mins later.

     

    Checked United flight times and it appears the arrival is now schedule 8mins earlier at 2:48 so now 2:52 hours to transfer.

     

    You will probably be out of customs by about 3:50 at the latest. So that's still nearly 2 hours before your BA flight. It might take you 10 minutes to get to the BA check in desk, so as long as your flight from BZE is on-time, you should be OK.

     

    We are travelling on UK passports will that make any difference as not US citizens?

     

    Oh yes and we are travelling biz with United and First with BA?

    We arrive back in the US via Air China at 2:30pm (I believe that is Terminal 1). We then have to connect to a JetBlue 5:39pm flight out of Terminal 5. Will that give us enough time presuming we arrive on time? We booked flights separately. thanks.

    Hi. I'm flying with Germany wings from Dresden to Dusseldorf and then onwards from Dusseldorf to London Stansted. Both flights are with Germanwings. I have been given 50 minutes to transfer to the connecting flight. Will this be enough time? Do I need to go through security or re-check my luggage? Thanks

     

    No, you do not have to go through security or re-check your baggage. You will just have to go to through Schengen exit passport control.

     

    Great! Thank you.

     

  • CUN to LAS (via dfw)

    Hi, We are flying out of cancun at 6am and arriving at dfw at 9am. Our connection to Las Vegas is at 10:35am. I was wondering if this is enough time to transit? We are traveling on a Tuesday and we have checked bags and also Australian passport holders. Thanks! Ria

     

    That should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal.

    My flight itinerary has been changed by United. I fly into ord from Buffalo and have a 1h8m layover before departing for Fort Lauderdale. Will that be enough time for my checked luggage to get transferred to the second plane? Thanks in advance

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

  • Can I make connection

    I'm traveling on a delta flight from MCO-ATL-BGI, with a 45 minute connection. Only using delta. Will i have to pass through security again and have enough time to make connection?

     

    You will not have to go through security. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Connection time for Terminal B international arrival

    I will be arriving into IAH Terminal B from Manzanillo Mexico, with a 1h34min connection before carrying on to New Orleans. What does terminal B customs look like, will I need to claim and recheck my luggage, and is this enough time to make the connection? Thanks!

     

    There is no customs in Terminal B. United Express flights from Mexico arrive into Terminal D. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. Most flights to New Orleans depart from Terminal C, which is directly connected to D. Though some leave from B, connected by the TerminaLink train.

     

    Also, you should have enough time to make your connection.

     

  • Flight Transfer at EWR- Need to recheck in the Bags
    Mar 4, 2015

    Hi .. First time flyer... My flight is from MUMBAI ( BOM) to Jacksonville thru EWR. Have to change the terminal and on board a different Airline (United Airlines) Domestic flight to Jacksonville. Do I need to pick the baggage, go thru immigration clearance and redo the security check in? Please Help!!!!!!!!

     

    If you purchased your tickets together in one purchase, You will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then if your bags are tagged through to JAX you can re-check them at the transfer desk. Otherwise look up which terminal your flight will depart from. United flights to JAX depart from both Terminal A and C. Take the AirTrain to your departure terminal, then re-check your bags if you haven't already. Get your United boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.

     

  • New to Schengen, non-Schengen, Can you help?

    In March will arrive from TPE to connect to BEG, and my return is from BEG to connect to IAD. Need I collect luggage to recheck in addition to passport control, security etc. both ways? Thank you!

     

    Assuming each of your connections in AMS were purchased together (ie TPE-AMS-BEG is on one ticket and BEG-AMS-IAD is on one ticket), You will not have to collect your baggage in AMS on any connection. Since you will not be entering the Schengen Area on any of these flights either, you will not have to go through passport control. You will just go through security.

    I don't know the first thing about this airport. I am arriving from Buffalo ny to IAD at 4:19 and then my international flight to Dakar, Senegal leaves at 5:40. Will 1.5 hours be enough time to get to where I need to go?

     

    Yes, if you purchased your tickets together your baggage will be transferred and you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at IAD are connected inside security.

     

    Thank you so much! I appreciate it!
