  • Enough time to transfer from Domestic to International
    Nov 10, 2014
    4
    I am traveling from Chicago to Dallas Fort Worth (American Airlines) to connect with a flight to Sydney (Qantas) 1 hour 15 minutes later. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You can get to Terminal D where you will depart by the SkyLink train which runs inside security.

     

    Will there be enough time to pass immigration?

     

    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Australian Immigration when you get to Australia.

     

    Thanks a lot for your help Zap

  • Connection time from YOW to SJO via Dulles IAD

    I'm flying on a Sunday morning in January from Ottawa YOW to San Jose, Costa Rica via Dulles IAD. Is 1 hour 8 minutes enough time to make the connection?! Help!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. In IAD all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in concourse A you can take the Aerotrain to your departure in C/D.

    I am flying from Atlanta on Frontier with a carry-on bag. I have an hour to get to the next flight on United to Vancouver BC. Will I have to go back through security, or can I go directly to the gate assuming I have a mobile boarding pass for the United flight.

     

    You can go directly to your departure gate via the underground train.

    I'm considering buying a ticket, but am concerned about the connection time. It arrives from Madrid at 16:05 and my connecting flight leaves at 17:49. Will I have enough time to get through customs and make my connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Question Regarding Connection Flight

    We are scheduled to arrive at JFK from Dublin, IE, on Nov 20 via Delta. We only have about 90 minutes until our connection flight to Atlanta (also Delta) departs. Is this enough time? Will we need to claim and re-check our baggage? Will we need to go through immigration and customs from Ireland? We had a straight flight from Dublin to Atlanta but just received information regarding a Delta shedule change which resulted in a layover. There are no other straight flights.

     

    There is US Immigration and customs preclearance in Dublin, so you will do all those procedures there. Your arrival into JFK will be like a domestic flight. You will only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Chances are you will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 2. There is a Delta shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you.

     

    Is it the same situation coming from Shannon to JFK? I'm looking at a 1.5 hr. layover connecting to Chicago.

    Hi! I will be traveling from Dubai to Grand Cayman via delta airlines. I have a connecting flight in Atlanta. Do I still need to claim my bags at ATL and then check-in again after US customs? And will it be on the same concourse? Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will still need to claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check them. Atlanta does not have facilities for International to International connections without claiming bags.

    Hi I am landing from Johannesburg to Dulles IAD at 6:25 from united airlines operated by Southafrican airways SA 207 and my Connecting flight is at 8:16 am to Minneapolis. Will that be enough time to go through immigration, claim baggage and hand over to connecting flight. By chance if i miss the flight will United put me in another flight ? Thanks,

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in concourse B and be taken to the International Arrivals Building by the mobile lounge. 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 take the Aerotrain to your departure concourse. If you do miss your flight you will be rebooked.

    hi I have the following schedule Flight 8930: SFO to IAD arrives Thu 4:44p, the connection flight is Flight 8802: IAD to Brussels departs Thu 5:50p. I have 1h 06m transfer time. Both the flights are by Brussels Airlines, and I bought as a single ticket Is this possible to catch the connection flight ? Thanks Kumaran

     

    Actually, both of your flights will be operated by United Airlines. Yes, that is enough time. Both flights will be on the C/D concourse. All you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am travelling from Beirut to Madrid on Friday. My transit time is 1 hour only in Fiumicino Airport. The plane stops on tarmac and the transfer to the airport is by bus. Do i have time to change from T3 to T1 and catch my flight to Madrid ?

     

    It will depend on your first flight being on-time. It's doable.

     

  • Claim Baggage for Connecting Flights in DFW

    My parents will fly from PVG to DFW via flight AA 128 on Nov, 10, then connect the flight AA 2396 to ATL after 2 hours 30 minutes. Do they have to claim baggage even though two flights operated by same air company (AA)? The flights where booked together. Thank you!

     

    Yes, they will arrive in Terminal D go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, then re-check their bags at the transfer desk, then they will go through security and to their departure gate. Once they are through security the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Transfering from United to Lufthansa flight 1 hr

    I will be transfering from United to Lufthansa airline on a 1 hr layover in frnakfurt. Will I be able to make this transfer. Looks like both airlines are in terminal 1.

     

    Yes, but it doesn't leave much time for any delays.

     

    Why?

     

    I have the same issue for an upcoming trip: Assuming carry-on bags does this transfer involve customs and passport control or just passport control? (US to Barcelona via FRA)

    1 1/2 hour layover in Amsterdam. Flying Delta Portland, OR to Edinburgh. Will I need to go through customs? Do I have enough time?

     

    You will not go through Immigration or Customs in Amsterdam as you will not be entering the Schengen area. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.
