  • Vcr Canada to IAH then Ft. Lauderdale-do I need to change terminals
    Mar 10, 2014

    We're flying in with United from Vancouver Canada next month. Arrive at 12.25 PM, connecting flight to Ft. Lauderdale at 2.11 PM. What terminal do we arrive in and connect to? Do we have to claim luggage and go to another terminal or will our luggage be transferred by the airline? Ticket was purchased as one reservation.Will we be rushing to make the connection?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You won't have to claim your luggage in Houston, it will be transferred automatically. Both of your flights will likely be in Terminal C. There's a chance one may be in Terminal E, but it's connected directly to C. You should have plenty of time to make your transfer.

     

    thank you!

    What terminal does Delta usually have for arriving flights and what terminal does KLM have for departing flights? To Nairobi. Thanks

     

    Amsterdam only has one Terminal and allows sterile transfer, so just follow the signs from your arriving gate to your departure gate.

    Great small plates and wine selections. Oasis while traveling.

    Arriving from Newark NJ on United. Departing at a later date to Newark on United. Which terminals will I use and how much time will I need at departure

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 3. On departure from Rome you will have to go to Terminal 5, which is just a building off to the side, where you will check-in and go through security. Then you are taken by bus to Terminal 3. I would plan on getting to Terminal 5 at least 2 hours prior to your flight, preferably 2.5-3 hours.

     

  • Connection London - Chicago - Manhattan

    I will be arriving at Chicago on US047 from London at Terminal 5 at 17:10, and leaving for Manhattan, KS at 19:10 on US 3606 from Terminal 3. That's two hours, which I assume will be enough (I'm on a UK passport), but I'd like to be aware of what to do so that I don't waste any time. Could you tell me step-by-step what to do at O'Hare in between getting off the one plane and getting on the other? It'd be hugely appreciated as I am slightly nervous, having not flown to the States before. Will I have to reclaim my bag and check it back in?

     

    Please note that both of your flights will be operated by American/American Eagle. You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with American (they should already be tagged through to MHK so you just have to drop them off). Then you will go up several levels in the terminal to the ATS train and take it to Terminal 3 (1 stop), then you will take the pedestrian bridge across the street and go through security in Terminal 3 and to your gate (which will likely be on Concourse G.

     

    Excellent reply, thank you! I take it two hours will suffice for this?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Will I have enough time for a connection?

    I arrive on a Sunday on Swiss Air flight 14 from Zurich at 3:50 pm, presumably in Terminal 4. There is a jet blue flight I would like to take at 5:30 pm in Terminal 5. Will I have enough time? Thank you

     

    It doesn't leave enough time in my opinion, since you would probably have to transfer the bags yourself and get them checked-in at JetBlue's counter before the bag cut-off. Maybe if you didn't have checked baggage it would be doable.

    Hi, I'm arriving from Toronto to Houston with UA. Then I'm taking the flight IHA-VSA. I would be arriving to Terminal B and departing from E. My first question is how probable is that the flight from Toronto with UA will be on time and whether 57 minutes is enough time for the transfer? There's only one IAH-VSA flight per day.

     

    There's about a 60 or 70% chance that your flight to Houston will be on-time. Houston is one of United's more on-time hubs. If it is on-time or close to it, 57 minutes is enough time for your connection, but if you're worried you might want to take an earlier flight from Toronto if one's available.

     

    Thank you for your response. Arriving to Houston from Toronto, I'm assuming I'll go through US customs and security in Toronto. Would I have to go through customs again in Houston? Thanks again.

     

    No, once you clear customs in Toronto it's like you're already in the US.

    Hi, I will arrive on April 8 from Europe at The international Terminal and have connection to Miami at South terminal. I arrive with Airfrance and continue with Airfrance operated by delta. Since I am traveling with my family( wife and a 7 years old kid), I have 2 questions: 1. Do I have to check-out the luggages and then to check them in again? 2. I am a little worried about the 1h and 45 min connectionte between the flights, will be enough? And, if you have any tips regarding fast-passing, please let me know. Thank you! Alin

     

    Yes, you will claim your luggage after immigration, go through customs, and then immediately re-check your baggage with Delta. You will then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse (you don't actually have to go to the South Terminal). You should have enough time and if you do miss your connection, Delta runs lots of flights between Atlanta and Miami.

    Hi, I am flying Frontier Air from Minneapolis to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and have 1 hr 6 min between flights. I am also flying Frontier to MX...will that be enough time (carry-on only), and do I have to go through immigration in Denver?

     

    On your way to Cabo you will have plenty of time, you will not have to go through any immigration in Denver and all Frontier flights are on the same concourse close together. On the return is when you'll have to go through immigration in Denver and hopefully you have more time for your connection.

     

  • Transfer time non-connecting flight

    Flying from Rome (via Munich) with Lufthansa at 1030 a.m. Non-connecting flight with KLM to Canada at 1230. Do we pick up our luggage, go through customs, then to a KLM baggage drop off point? Is 2 hours enough for an international flight? I will have already checked in online.

     

    You will not have to go through customs in Amsterdam as Rome, Munich, and Amsterdam are all within the Schengen area. So you will just have to pick up your bags at the Schengen Baggage claim and check them with KLM. Alternatively, it never hurts to ask if the Lufthansa agent in Rome can check your bags through to your KLM to Canada. Lufthansa and KLM do have an interline agreement. You will have to show your KLM flight confirmation to the Lufthansa agent if you want to try this.

     

    Thank you so much for your very helpful answer. Relieves a lot of stress!

  • Arriving from ATL at CDG then on to MRS

    I will arrive from Atlanta at CDG at T2E at 8:10 A.M. then transfer to Marseille at T2F. I would like to know if I am supposed to go through immigration and or customs at CDG first before leaving for Marseille. I only have 84 minutes between flights which are both on Air France. Do I have enough time? Thank you very much for whatever advise you could give me.

     

    You will go through Schengen immigration in Paris. It's not a choice you'll have to make, when you go towards your flight to Marseille you will have to go through it. Yes, you should have enough time.

     

    Thank you very much, Zap. That's very helpful.

     

  • 1.5 hours lay over - Enough Time
    Mar 7, 2014

    We are flying from Charlotte to Dulles to catch our flight to Zurich, Switzerland for our wedding. We have a layover of about 1.5 hours. Will this be enough time in light of immigration, etc?

     

    Only international ARRIVALS need to go through immigration process. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text, including Midfield Concourses, gates, transfer, etc. 1.5 hrs. should suffice.
