    I'm flying from Brazil to Mexican via United Airlines by IAH. I arrive at TE/IAH and I will leave to Aguascalientes/MX by the TE/IAH. Will I need to re-check in my luggage at IAH and to go through immigration check and check in IAH or I can wait the flight to Aguascalientes in TE?

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your luggage, go through US customs, and then re-check your bags. Then you will go through Security and to your departure gate. However, your flight to Aguascalientes will not depart from Terminal E, it will depart from Terminal B. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • RIC to BOS to LHR, 42 min layover
    May 26, 2014

    Hi, I'm flying RIC to BOS and then have only 42 minutes before my flight to LHR. I don't fly much, so I didn't pay attention to that short layover, but now I'm worried. Is there a chance this is enough time? Both my flight arriving in BOS and flight leaving to LHR are in terminal A; will I need to pass through security again? I haven't packed yet but am trying to make it will no checked bags, just a carry-on. Thanks...

     

    And both flights are through Delta...

     

    At BOS Delta uses Terminal A for all but its international arrivals. TA's main terminal has departure gates A1-A12 and a Satellite with gates A13-A22, both of which are connected via underground walkway. you have enough transfer time.

    Dear Sir or Madam, I am arriving in DTW from LAX by DELTA 539 and have to change the plane to DELTA 1088 to New York, EWR. I have only 40 minutes on order to change a plane and I wonder if I should go through any checking or custom? Additionally, will my checked in bags forwarded or I have to do that by myself? Thank you very much in advance for your help.

     

    You arrive at DTW at the McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses & gates A, B & C. A tunnel connects in the center between Concourse A (near gate 38) and Concourses B & C (at Gates C1 of the lower level). Follow signs. Only international arrivals at US Airports need to go through customs clearance. Your bags will be checked through. Your transfer time should suffice.

    Hi, If arriving on Delta DL219 from Copenhagen at 2.45 pm (June 5), can I make a Delta flight (DL2901) to Detroit at 4.15 (90 min)? Will my baggage make it? In case of a delay, what's the absolute minimum transfer time needed? Don't know which terminals. Thanx

     

    You arrive at Terminal 4 (T4) of JFK, where you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bags where indicated. Thereafter, Delta's continuously running shuttle bus runs between gates B23 of T4 and C60 of T2- no need for security check - add about 12 minutes of transfer time.

     

    Thanks. But in case of a delayed arrival, what's the absolute minimum transfer time needed? For me? And for my baggage?

     

    It will be tough to make your connection - right now it is a the minimum connection time. You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check it. Then you will take the AirTrain/Air Terminals train from T4 to T2, go through security, and to your departure gate. momay is incorrect when he says there is no security check.

    I have 45 minutes to connect from my delta flight from omaha, ne to my delta flight that goes to st. lucia. This is for my honeymoon and we are very nervous we wont make our flight to st. lucia! It is the only flight to st. lucia that day...the next one isnt for 24 hrs. Is 45 minutes enough time? We bought the flights on the same ticket with delta, do you think we will be at gates that are close to one another or very far? If far, what is the longest time it would take us to get from one end to another? Thanks!

     

    Delta uses all domestic Concourses T & A through D, with corresponding gates. All international flights are at the International 'Maynard Jackson' Terminal with Concourses/ gates E or F - reached by the underground Plane Train which stops at the center of each Concourse. Absent incoming flight delay, you should be able to make your connection and your bags will be automatically transferred. To familiarize yourself with ATL's layout, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Hi, Looking at a connection from DTW to Copenhagen, Denmark on Sunday eve, June 22. Both Delta flights. Arrive 7.33 Depart 8.40. Is that really enough time? If there's a delay, what's the absolute minimum transfer time needed? Is there passport check on departure? Thanx

     

    It's barely enough time. There will be no passport check. You will arrive in Terminal 2 and have to take Delta's shuttle bus which runs inside security to Terminal 4.

     

    Thank you, ZAP. Can you also answer my question about Delta international to domestic? The answer I got from momay wasn't really complete. Thanx

    i have a flight connecting flight from montego bay jamaica to jfk and the switch over time is 1 hr and 40 minuites on american airlines...is that enough time

     

    At MIA, American Airlines uses both Concourses D & E of the North Terminal with corresponding gates. On arrival at MIA you need to go through international arrivals procedures. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/mia, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    I am flying from PHX to Bangkok(BKK) on DELTA. I will arrive at terminal 5 gate 52A, then will depart from terminal 5 gate 68B. I looked at the terminal map, and could not find gate 68B in terminal 5. It's in terminal 6. So, what terminal is exactly gate 68B in? DELTA's flight details always show terminal 5 gate 68B. In case that they are in different terminals. Do I need to exit terminal 5 and go through the TSA checkpoint again? I have only 43 minutes between the flight. Will I have enough time? Thank you for your help!

     

    Yes gate 68B is in Terminal 6; however, while T5 is exclusively used by Delta - T6 is being used by Alaska, Copa, Great Lakes & United airlines. Do check with Delta again. If you need to connect to T6, you need to take the tunnel connector, reached by escalators from the baggage claim level - then go through security check & on to your connecting gate. No time to waste!

    As you are a non-Schengen arrival at FCO, your transfer time should suffice. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fco, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    questions : 1> is 3h enought time for transit? 2>do i need to re-check in my luggages ? 3>do i need to go through security check or TSA in order to get to my departure gate again ? many tks for your insights !

     

    3 hrs is enough time. Your arrival & departure depends on which airline(s) you take. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. (Pay attention to International Arrivals & transfers.

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration and claim your luggage, if your bags are tagged through to AMS you can re-check your bags immediately after customs, but if not you will have to take them to Terminal D to check with KLM. Then you will go through Security and to your departure gate in Terminal D.

    minor traveling from lga to iah to lim with 2:30min connect time. Is that enough time to get from term c to term e? do they need to do anything with luggage at IAH or is it checked through to LIM?

     

    If both flights were bought on one ticket, bags will automatically be transferred. The above-ground TerminaLink train runs inside security (on arrival, look for its signs; it starts at Terminal A station & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E (a 30 mins transfer). For terminal details open open www.ifly.com/iah, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the text.

     

  • Getting from international to domestic and what to do

    Flying from England, connecting to domestic flight to Iowa. How to do that? How long will it take? Do we have to collect our luggage and take it with us through the airport? How long will it take to go through security:immigration for foreigners? We'll be laying over for 7 hours. Is there a VIP lounge near or in the domestic terminal that we can have a rest? We've never been at Atlanta airport before. Looks huge and scary.

     

    Nothing scary about ATL. Open www.ifly.com/atl, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text - paying attention to "Getting Around" & its sub-headings, then moving further down to 'Terminal Details'. Thereafter click on the Terminal maps above to familiarize yourself with the terminal layouts. ATL's new International Terminal is splendid with plenty of amenities & services & lounges.

     

    Do I have to prebook the lounges? Thanks.

     

  • Flight from CLT to GNV, connecting time. of 1:50 mins is sufficient ?

    Well I will be travelling from India to Gainesville.. on the 13th of Aug 14.. I have Charlotte Douglas airport as my port of entry.. I am travelling for the 1st time to USA on student visa.. my arrival at CLT through Lufthansa is at 4:20pm.. and connecting flight to Gainesville is at 6:11pm through US airways... is the connecting time sufficient to board the next flight ? Many thanks

     

    Yes you should be able to make the transfer in time. Both airlines belong to the Star Alliance, so after you have gone through passport check, pick up bags, & go through customs clearance, then re-check-in your bag, you may proceed to your connecting gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/clt then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Im flying from dublin to iad with connection to st louis, what is the procedure when i land at iad. Bearing in mind i will have gone through CBP pre clearance at dublin.

     

    Your arrival at IAD is considered to be a 'domestic arrival'. If both legs of the flight have been booked on one ticket, all you need to do is follow signs to your connecting flight, which depends on what airline you are taking. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.
