  • Walking time

    How long to walk between C-7 and D-28?


    On arrival at Concourse C, gate 7, walk towards gate C10 and take the underground tunnel to Concourse D: gates D2-14 are on both sides of the tunnel entrance, followed by 4 gateways at opposite side - follow gateway D28A-F.


    Allow about 10 minutes or more if you cannot walk briskly. There is a moving walkway for most of the tunnel, and often an electric cart available if assistance is needed.


  • SW gates arrival to SW gates departure

    Help for guiding a 15 yr old, arriving in Las Vegas from San Antonio SW Airlines, departure to Portland SW Airlines


    Southwest Airlines uses Terminal 1, B & C gates. The ticket & the overhead screen on arrival will indicate airline and gate number. If arriving at B gates and needing to transfer to C gates take the connector between gates B6 and B9, where you will have to go through security check with first gate C25 and last gate C1.


  • How do I get from terminal A to B
    Dec 31, 2013
    Hi, I'm flying from Toronto by United Airlines to Newark airport, I arrive in terminal A and I have and hour and a half till the next flight which is in terminal B to Zurich. Please tell me when I arrive where should I go after? Will my luggage be delivered to terminal B or do I have to pick it up ? Is it enough time to make it for my next flight ?


    Once you go past customs, there is a monrail or buses available for transfer between terminals. The terminals are right next to each other so travel time should be 5 to 10 minutes.

    I'm flying in from SJC to PHX on Southwest and then traveling on USAir/Horizon to Flagstaff. I have 50 mins to transfer. Do I have enough time?


    You arrive & depart from the large Terminal 4 - after security checkpoint, moving walkways connect all gates A - D on three sides of the food court: US Airways uses gates A1-14 & A17-30 & B1-14. Southwest uses gates C1-20 & D1-D8. Check on arrival the overhead screens for your connecting gate. You have enough time.


  • plane train or airtrain
    Nov 29, 2012
    I have to transfer from Terminal S to Terminal I in one hour. I dont have to pick up my luggage because my flights are with delta. I want to know which is the fastest and easier way to go to terminal I from terminal S. Is it plane train or airtrain??


    At ATL, note that Delta uses Concourses A through F (separate buildings) with corresponding gates. (E & F gates are international gates). All Concourses - domestic & international - are connected by the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse. Simply follow signs. You have enough time.


  • International Flight on December 22nd
    Nov 29, 2012
    Hi, I'm kind of worried, because my flight is going from LAX to PHL on December 22nd. I will arrive at 4:35 PM in Philadelphia at Terminal B and my connection flight to Munich, Germany will go at around 6:30 PM. Is it enough time? And what if my flight from LAX - PHL is delayed? Will the Ariline wait for me? I fly with U.S. Airways


    On arrival at PHL you arrive at Concourse A-East (with gates A1-13); you may also depart from there, or from the adjacent Concourse A-West (with gates A14-26) - simply walk over to your connecting gate. You have plenty of time!


  • Connection time
    Nov 29, 2012
    Hi there, I'm arriving from ORF (norfolk) and have a connecting flight to make on United from ORD to YVR (Vancouver Canada) and only have 1 hr 35 min to make the connection. Will that be enough time?


    At ORD, United uses Terminals 1, 2 & 5 (T5 is for United international arrivals only). T1 has Concourse B with gates B1-22 & C with gates C1-32; T2 has Concourse E with gates E1A-15 and Concourse F with gates F1-14 & n its lower level gates F11A, B & C. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3. Look on arrival at overhead screen to find your connecting flight & gate number. You have enough time. Alternatively to get from T2 to T1: Note that all gate areas of all terminals are not connected, but the secured area, which is the upper level (Departures) has, right after you walk from gate F8 past gate F1, at right end a connector to Terminal 1, where you will arrive again in the secured area, and where you should proceed to nearby gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates, turn left to gate C15.


    thnov, please stop leaving boilerplate responses - they aren't helpful. You can walk between your ORF flight and YVR flight without having to go through security. You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1. They are connected. Worst case walk time is about 20 minutes, so 1hr 35 minutes is plenty of time.


    Thank you so much for your thoughtful answer :)

    flying USAir - from Roanoke, Va leaving at 8:14 arriving Charlotte at 9:19 - connecting USAir (international) somewhere in the Charlotte Airport leaving at 9:59. I am very concerned we won't have enough time to make the this a valid concern? USAir has changed our flights 3 times, making the departure from Roanoke later and later.


    1. At CLT, US Airways uses domestic Concourses B (gates B1-16) & C (gates C2-19, United Airways Express uses Concourse E (gates E1-38. 2. Concourses A through E surround the main terminal - no shuttle service is needed. 3. On arrival look at overhead screens to find your departing flight, gate number & departures time. 40 mins should suffice.

    1. Make sure you go through U.S. Customs clearance at Vancouver Airport. 2. At SEA, you will arrive at Satellite North (N gates) and depart from Satellite South (S gates) 3. As Air Canada & Lufthansa are both members of the Star alliance, your bags will be automatically transferred to your Lufthansa flight. 4. To connect between the N gates and the S gates, take the train from South or North Satellite to the Main Terminal, then cross over and take the train on the opposite side, which is the shuttle that runs at post-security between the North & South stations.


  • Transit international to domestic
    Nov 28, 2012
    I am an elderly passenger traveling alone into Terminal D at DFW. Are there luggage trollies available for transferring baggage? Is it far between picking up luggage and checking in at the Qantas check-in desk?


    You are not clear as to whether you are arriving from a domestic flight and transferring to an International flight via Qantas - or whether you arrive at Terminal D via Qantas and continue your flight with a domestic carier.At DFW, Baggage Carts are available at the entrances and exits and in the Baggage Claim area. Skycap service is also available throughout the airport to persons needing special assistance. Therefore, I suggest you open and click on "Terminal Map", under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text, including International Arrivals /Transfers & connections. Terminal D is the International Terminal with gates D6-40.


  • transfer between a and f
    Nov 28, 2012
    my father is elderly and he arrives at gate a13 and he has 45 minutes to get to f38. is it enough time? can he take the transfer train get off at gate E and walk to f? all domestic.


    At PHL, your father will arrive at Terminal A-East. As Terminal F is separate and further away, a free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways , makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals A-East/ A-West (at gate A1), and Terminal F, at Concourse 2, gate F14, where he needs to follow signs to adjacent Concourse 3 with gates F24-39.


  • From T8 to T1
    Nov 28, 2012
    I will arrive at JFK T8 from Miami in 8 th of Feb 2013, at 22.20 pm. with AA. Then I have connecting fligh to Istanbul in T1 at 23.15 pm. I am not sure either that I have enouhg time to catch my plane to Istanbul. Please give me a clue to go to T1 easier. By the way, my luggages will be checked in Miami airport so will have no luggages with me.


    As you arrive at JFK via AA, which only uses Terminal 8, you need to find out from AA if they will transfer your bags to your connecting Airline (which?)at Terminal 1, which houses a number of major international carriers. If AA does not transfer, you need to claim your bag in the baggage area of T8 and take then on the Airtrain - follow signs - (no carts allowed) to Terminal 1, where you arrive in the pre-security area and need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate - 55 mins transfer time would then make it extremely tight!


  • Connecting terminal 2 to terminal 1
    Nov 27, 2012
    I have 47 minutes to connect from T2 to T2 , I am an older gentleman, will I be able to do this?


    You arrive at ORD, Terminal 2, either at Concourse E (gates E1A-E15), or Concourse F (gates F1-14 & or on lower level of concourse gates F11A, B & C) From there, you have two options to get to Terminal (Concourse B, gates B1-22; Concourse C, gates C1-31: (1) walk: From Terminals 2 to 1 -Note that all gate areas of all terminals are not connected, but the secured area, which is the upper level (Departures) has, right after you walk from gate F8 past gate F1, at right end a connector to Terminal 1, where you will arrive again in the secured area, and where you should proceed to nearby gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates, turn left to gate C15. (2) take the ATS shuttle train (follow signs) staring at T5 and serving T1, T2, & T3, running every few mins.


    He just said his connection is within T2! Why are you posting all this copy+paste gobbledygook tunov that doesn't apply to this situation? Terminal 2 is small and only really has 1 concourse (E and F are really just 2 branches of the same concourse), you can easily get between any of the two gates within 47 minutes.


  • Tight Connection: Arrive D, depart C
    Nov 26, 2012
    I have a Delta connecting flight arriving at 8:48AM on Term D, with a departing flight at 9:33AM on Term C. Is this sufficient time? Are the terminals connected?


    On arrival at LGA at TD, you have the option of walking over to TC or taking the bus - in both instances you need to exit TD and go through security check at TC before connecting to your gate. (TC & TD are close together, but not coected. The B Shuttle bus runs every 10-15 mins between these terminals. Time is extremely short.


  • conecting dom to int'l flight
    Nov 25, 2012
    We arrive in JFK @09.27 am by jetblue from orlando with the baggage.....and we connecting to int'l flight @13.50pm by China airlines to TPE ... is my time enough to get the connecting flight or should i have to take earlier flight from orlando ??


    You have plenty of time: JetBlue (code B6) uses both Terminals 4 & 5 adjacent to each other; while Chine Airline (code MU) uses Terminal 1. You need to find out from JetBlue if they will transfer your bags to the China Airline connecting flight - if not, you would have to claim your bags on arrival and take them with you on the Airtrain - connecting all terminals (follow signs) and check them in at China Airlines counter before proceeding through security and gates. If bags are being transferred, you may simply opt to exit your terminal and walk over to T1 or take the Airtrain, which serves the unsecured areas of the terminals.
