  • enough time for connecting flights

    Fisrt time traveling to cancun. Traveling from boston to Houston and only have 1 hour to change planes to go to cancun. all flights are on united will this be enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E, which are connected.

     

  • Terminal A to F + security??
    Jul 23, 2013

    Hi, I'm going from Shannon, Ireland to Newark Airport and I'm connecting in Philadelphia. I'm flying with US Airways. They have US Preclearance in Shannon so I won't have to go through immigration or customs or anything when I land in Philadelphia. The first plane gets into Philadelphia at 2:05pm in terminal A and the second leaves from terminal F at 4:05 pm, heading to Newark. So I was just wondering whether I'll have to go through security in Philadelpia and how long it will take to get from terminal A to terminal F?

     

    If you take the US Airways shuttle bus you do not have to go through security. I estimate the connection will take about half an hour.

     

    Thanks so much!

     

  • 1hr30m connection between Air Berlin and Aer Lingus

    I am flying in to Frankfurt on Air Berlin and have an 1hr30m to get to my connection flight by Aer Lingus. Will I make it if I have checked baggage? I am scared my baggage won't go through and I will have to pick it up and do everything all over again. What about if I don't have any checked baggage- will I make it then?

     

    US Arrivals at FRA are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only; (US departures use the Z gates).Your connecting Aer Lingus flight is in Terminal 1, Concourse A. Take the SkyLine train running inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. Note: Check with Air Berlin if they transfer bags to Aer Lingus! If not, you would have to pick up your bags and re-check them in with Aer Lingus.

    I am arriving on Frontier at 11:35 and leaving on Jet Blue at 11:59. Is this enough time to make it

     

    Yes you have enough time, as both airlines use Concourse A, which has gates A24 - A39 and A40 - A68 on either side of the center.

     

    You can make the connection if you don't have a checked bag. Frontier and JetBlue don't interline baggage. Also it's very tight and if your Frontier flight is delayed JetBlue probably won't be able to help you and you'll be stuck in Denver.

  • Where to go and what to do

    arrive in BKK on LH9741 and have 70mins to catch connecting flight LH783. Where do I go once I arrive & pick up boarding passes. Appreciate all your help thank you very much

     

    Your transfer time may suffice: BKK has one large terminal with Concourses forming an 'H': The Concourses: Buildings A through G form the letter "H" - with D in the center, C, & A to the left, and E, F & G to the right - all have access to the Main Terminal. Both international and domestic flights share the same terminal, but are assigned different parts of the concourse: Concourses A & C serves domestic passengers; Concourses D, E, F & G serve international passengers. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/bkk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text, which also outlines your transfer options.

    I arrive in Philadelphia from Minneapolis at 5:15pm. My flight to Glasgow leaves at 6:45pm. Both are US Airways flights. How close are the terminals and is an hour and a half enough time?

     

    They are very close - that is plenty of time.

    My 14 yr old niece is flying direct from BWI to Charlotte on Southwest. She isn't considered an unaccompanied minor. Anyone ever gottent a pass to meet a teenager at a gate who has never flown alone. I'm worried security won't let me meet her.

    Which gates are usually connecting for an international flight from NYC connecting through ZRH?

     

    Zurich Airport has one large passenger terminal with integrated Terminals 1 & 2 and Concourses A, B & E (E being a satellite): While Concourse /Gates B/D are to the left, Concourse /Gates A are to the right, and the Skymetro takes you to Councourse /gates E. Simply follow signs to your connecting A - E gates. (a) On arrival you need to pass through passport control & the security checkpoint prior to boarding your connecting flight. (b) If you have a boarding pass for your onward flight, watch the screens for flight information, appearing one hour prior to scheduled flight. If you don't have one yet contact the information or transfer desk in your waiting area, which is clearly marked.

     

  • Connection time from terminal C to terminal A

    We're flying with United from Hamilton (Bermuda) to Montreal (Canada), with a 1h15 layover in Newark. We land in Terminal C and will be departing from Terminal A. Will we have to go through customs and get our luggage? Is this enough time? Thank you!

     

    I forgot to mention that we will be arriving at Terminal C a saturday at 5h11 pm and we will be departing from Terminal A at 6h29 pm. Thanks!

     

    Yes you need, on arrival at Newark Airport, go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in bags where indicated. Thereafter you will need to take the AirTrain to Terminal A (2 stops) where you arrive in the pre-security area and need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. TA has Gate Area A1 (gates A10-18); Gate Area A2 (gates A20-28); and Gate Area A3 (gates A30-39). This is high season & your time may be extremely tight.

     

    mojul, again, is incorrect. Flights from Bermuda preclear immigration and customs in Bermuda. You just have to go between your gates as your arrival from Bermuda will just be like a domestic flight. United runs a secure-side shuttle between terminals if you have to transfer between them.

     

    After going through customs and re-check-in luggage, is it still in the post-security area? Is the shuttle bus still available?

     

  • UA Int'l Arvl Fm DXB To IAD/Continue UA To DAY

    I'm a little worried about this connection time... UA arrival from DXB is at 0610, dunno concourse, UA departure to DAY is 0817, same ticket. Do I understand correctly that I will be able to go through immigration, collect checked bags, then through customs, then recheck bags, then TSA, and all within concourse C?? Is that 2 hour 7 minute time frame enough time to do this?? SO appreciate the guidance provided here!!

     

    Your transfer time should suffice, if arrival at IAD is not delayed: After re-check-in of bags, International arrivals who continue their journey cannot use the AeroTrain, but need to take the Mobile Lounge shutttle to either gates D1-32 and H-gates. The shuttle bus to the D gates is located on the Main Terminal's lower level (to the right of the passenger walkway to A& B gates. C gates C1-30 & D gates D1-32 are connected by a walkway.

     

    Thanks much mojul13 - and do I understand correctly that there's a "re-check-in" of bags counter of sorts in the basement of Concourse C? Meaning that I would not need to drag bags to a check-in counter in the main concourse?

     

    That is correct. you can re-check your bags in C.

     

    You guys RAWK here, did you know that? I know it takes time and effort to research and answer all our questions..... just wanted to let you know that it's deeply appreciated, and that you have a grateful audience out here! Kudos!

     

  • Connecting to Air France within 40 minutes

    How will I make a Delta flight from GSP to Air France within 43 minutes?

     

    Both airlines serve in the McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses A, B C with corresponding gates. Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. Concourse A has to the left gates A38-A1; to the right gates A40-78, and at its center the tunnel connecting to Concourse B to the left and Concourse C to the right. Concourse B at right has gates B1-21on opposite sides. Concourse C at left has C1 through C43 on opposite sides. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7.

    Southwest flight lands at 9. Delta flt leaves at 10:05. No baggage to check. Enough time?

     

    At PHX, SW serves T4, DL serves T3; to get from T3 to T4, you need to leave the secure area and catch the shuttle bus at the curb. At T4 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. Hurry!

     

  • Connection Terminal D to Terminal A

    I will be arriving United flight (from Houston) into terminal D at 5:39pm and need to connect to a 6:45pm US Air flight to Venice, Italy. What's the best way to get to Terminal A from D, how long will it take and can I avoid having to go back through security?

     

    1. If you booked your flight for both airlines on one ticket, your bags should be transferred (but make sure United & US Airways belong to different Alliances). 2. TD through TA are connected by moving walkways - no need to go through security check. One hour should suffice.
