  • 1 hour connection time BCN to AMS to SEA
    Mar 28, 2015
    1
    I read that effective June 1, 2015 AMS will no longer have security checks at the gates. I am a U.S. citizen traveling post-cruise on 10/2015 on KLM from BCN to AMS, connecting on Delta to SEA. Will my baggage be checked through? I am confused about Schengen/non-Schengen/International procedures. Will one hour be sufficient to go through new security check points in time to make Delta flight to U.S.?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Your baggage will be checked through. You will go through Schengen exit passport control (a very quick process).

    Arriving at Terminal 1 at 8:15 a.m. on a weekday morning in April. Connecting flight leaves at 9:15 a.m. from Terminal 2. Is this enough time to make the connection without running? How does one change terminals, here?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time if the first flight is on-time. There is a walkway inside security between T1 and T2. Also, note that many United Express flights leave from Terminal 1.

     

  • how long will I need from International terminal to terminal 5

    Hi everyone, I will be arriving to LAX ─▒nternational terminal with Turkish Airlines at 4:30 PM (hopefully!!!)... My next flight is with Delta Airlines at terminal 5 at 6:50 PM.. Will this time gonna be enough for me to collect the luggage, pass through security and passport and walk to terminal 5??? I really cannot miss this flight:((((( Thank you for your help...

     

    If you purchased two separate tickets and your Turkish flight is late or there is long lines at Immigration, it will be difficult for you to get your bags to T5 before the baggage cutoff. If you purchased your tickets together that should be enough time.

     

    I purchased them separately:(((( Last time I arrived Lax from Turkey, it was not very crowded... Guess I will need to run:((( Thank you soo much...

    Hi just trying to work out what minimum time required to get through customs and catch connecting flight with say UA6483 to Vancouver Is 2 hrs 54 min Approx.enough time Many Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

  • Do I have time to go from C to Z ? What's the minimum time for this...

    Can someone help and let me know if I have enough time to go from concourse C to Z if my layover is 1h:25min to my next flight to USA? I'm asking because I'm "caring" a 6 years old with me....which will slow me down a bit... Thanks!

     

    That should be enough time.

    My domestic flight (Southwest airline) arrive in Tacoma airport on 10:30am. My next international flight (Korean airline) departing on 2:15pm. I need to claim the baggage and check the baggage for my international flight. Do I have enough time????

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Everything is in the same Terminal building so after you claim your bags you'll just have to find your way to the Korean check-in desk.

     

  • TERMINAL C TO B

    Hi - we are arriving from Turks and Caicos off United Airlines (terminal c) and have an onward flight to london on Virgin from terminal b. The united flight arrives at 6pm and the virgin flights leave at 1030pm but check in closes at 9.15pm. So we have 3 hours to transfer. Do we have to go through USA immigration again and customs only to check in again or is there a transit system? what is the easiest way to get between terminals with kids/bags? many thanks!

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs when you arrive in Newark. The terminals are connected via the AirTrain. You should have enough time.

     

  • Munich Flight to SFO

    I will be going from Munich (Luftansa) to SFO and landing in SFO at 7:00pm. My United flight from SFO to Orange County is at 8:30pm. Will I have enough time to clear customs/immigration and make flight??

     

    That will likely barely be enough time assuming your first flight is on-time.

     

  • madrid to lax

    I am flying in from Madrid to LAX on Iberia, then need to catch a connecting flight to Oakland. Is three hours enough to clear customs and get over to the Southwest terminal? It will be a Friday evening...not sure if that matters.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to transfer your bags yourself to Terminal 1. It's fastest to walk from the International Terminal to T1 vs. taking the bus. Follow the signs for passengers exiting LAX when you clear customs, then exit the International Terminal and walk to your left (against the flow of traffic) until you get to Terminal 1.

     

  • Enough Connection Time?

    Flying JetBlue to BOS arriving at 9:56pm in Terminal C. I need to collect my checked bags, and re-check in with Turkish Airlines in Terminal E. Turkish Airlines flight is leaving at 11:45pm. I spoke with JetBlue and they said that it should be enough time to connect flights even though it will be under two separate reservations; I am still a little hesitant. Is this enough time for the connection? Or, should I take an earlier JetBlue flight arriving into BOS at 6:44pm (which would give me an awfully long layover)?

     

    Is probably OK assuming it's on-time. It leaves you around 45 minutes to get off the plane, get your bags, and get them to Terminal E. It leaves no room for any delays of the first flight though.

    I'm travelling through Atlanta Airport to Rome and I have 1 hr layover in Atlanta. I have 2 kids and I'm pregnant. Is this enough time to connect, both flight are on Delta Airlines. And is there any way I can know which terminal I'll be arriving at and which terminal I'm leaving from?? TIA

     

    where are you flying into Atlanta from? All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to the E or F concourse where your flight to Rome will depart. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    We're flying from Jacksonville Airport. Thank you :)

     

    Then yes, you should have enough time.

     

  • Orlando MCO - NY JFK - SIN

    Hi. I'll be flying from MCO to JFK on JetBlue arriving 1832hrs Terminal 5. I'll then need to catch an international flight on SQ departing 2055hrs Terminal 4. I bought the tickets separately and will have a bag to check in. Will I have enough time for connection? Thanks!

     

    It's possible, but you'll need to hope your JetBlue flight is on-time and your baggage comes quickly.

     

  • LHR to Orlando and Orlando to LHR connections

    Hi, Does the following schedule allow enough time for transfers? I'm a bit concerned that both are cutting it a bit fine? United: Heathrow via Houston to Orlando UA 5 07APR LHR-IAH 1340 1800 UA 1580 07APR IAH-MCO 1933 2247 United: Orlando via Washington to Heathrow UA 1106 10APR MCO-IAD 1858 2110 UA 924 07APR IAD-LHR 2155 #1020

     

    Both connections leave enough time. In Houston you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security and to your departure gate, which will likely be in Terminal C. In Washington all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in the C/D concourse.

     

  • VERY short connection time

    I am a UK citizen who will be returning to London from Vegas via Houston on United airlines. United have given me 35 minutes to get from terminal C at Houston to terminal E. The travel company claim United have given me enough time but I am not so sure. Will I need to claim my bag, re-check them in and do the whole passport control thing again? All help gratefully received!

     

    All you have to do in Houston on your way to London is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Just follow signs to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you!

    We arrive from Milan (LIN) at 14:10 in FCO terminal 1 and have to catch a flight from FCO terminal 3 at 15:20 giving us 1hr 10mins to do it. Both of us have EU passports and all flights are Alitalia. Is this enough time? Cheers

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Just follow signs to your departure gate.
