  • Transferring flights

    Arriving Term 1 gate C5 on Sunday, Leaving 60 minutes later from Term 2 gate F5. Do I have sufficient time??

     

    At ORD, you have two choices to get from T1 to T2: you can walk from C gates, passing B gates and taking connector to F gates; or you can take the pedestrian tunnel connecting both terminals, in which case you need to go through security again. Either way you have enough time.

    Do you have a decent map to get to Delta terminal A, arrivals to pickup a passenger?

     

    1. If you need to pick up a passenger at the Airport, use the Cell Phone Lot ('Passenger Pickup Lot')--stay with your vehicle until your party has gathered luggage and calls you to be picked up at the curb. To access the lot, whether you're approaching the airport using John F. Kennedy Boulevard or Will Clayton Parkway, just follow the purple signs to the entrance. 2. Open www.ifly.com/iah and click on "Airport Parking" map under QUICK LINKS - scroll down for details.

     

  • Transfer from internat. to terminal 1
    Jul 6, 2012

    We only have 50 minutes to transfer and we are travelling with kids, please advise how to get from international terminal flight Delta 9381 from SFO to terminal 1 for delta 9602 flight

     

    1. My SFO search for both flights for today & tomorrow did not come up with your flight numbers. 2. As an international arrival at SFO, you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bags. This may take 40-55 mins, particularly in summer. Thereafter, you can proceed to Terminal 1 (B gates 20-36), but need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. The Red Line of the AirTrain connects all terminals. I am not confident that 50 mins is enough time for you and the kids to transfer. It does not leave any time for possible flight delay, let alone transfer to T1.

     

  • arriving from dfw to bey 1 hour in betwe

    as a us arriving from dfw and leaving in 1 hour to bey is that enogh time

     

    Since you do not state the airlines you arrive at and depart from, which may require you to change terminals and/or Concourses, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS. Scroll down to text which gives you all the needed details. As a non-Schengen (countries not adhering to Schengen Agreement) you will have to go through FRA's immigration & customs clearance. Considering that it is peak travel season, one hour seems to be a very short time slot.

     

  • Worried about connection

    Arrive Terminal C (via WestJet from Toronto) at 13:55 connection is Terminal D arriving at 15:00. I only have carry on but will be travelling alone with 6 & 8 year olds. Do I need to rush? Will I need to go through security again?

     

    At Toronto Airport make sure that you go through US customs clearance, saving you time at LGA. At LGA, Terminals C and D are next to each other, but you need to exit TC and go through security at TD before continuing on to your departing gate. Note that Terminals C & D are getting (or may have already completed) the 650-foot bridge connector. Either way an hour transfer is sufficient unless your plane will have serious delay.

     

  • Clearing customs after flt from Canada

    I'm flying to MDW on Porter Airlines from Toronto, arriving at 4:10 pm on a Thursday. I have to catch a Southwest flight at 5:50. Do I have time to clear customs, get my bag, get to the SWA gate, and recheck the bag?

     

    Make sure you clear U.S. Customs at Toronto Airport - saving you time at MDW. What you need to do: Find out from Porter Airlines if they transfer your bags to your connecting Southwest flight. If not, you need on arrival at MDW go down to the baggage claim, pick up your bag & re-check it in with Southwest Airlines. Note that the passenger terminal has Concourses A, B & C. -Porter uses A gates, Southwest uses C gates. You have sufficient time.

    we varrive from cairo @11:20 in terminal2F and depart @12:35 from 2G to Clermont Ferrand , is it enough time to reach? and how?

     

    At CDG satellite terminals 2F & 2G are 2.5 km apart, requiring you to take the shuttle bus outside arrivals. An hour transfer time is enough.

    Do Canadian children under 16 need passports if flying within US...in our case Detroit to Orlando?

     

    If arriving from Canada at DTW and using in Canada U.S. Customs clearance, you won't have to worry. Otherwise I suggest you contact your airline or the TSA (www.tsa.com).

     

  • United Airlines to Door 00

    Arriving on United Airlines, will be catching a Kenmore Air shuttle at Door 00. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me a general idea of how to find my way through SeaTac Airport. Thanks to everyone!

     

    1. At SEA United serves in both Satellite North (N gates) and Concourse A (A gates) - your ticket should indicate arrival gate area. You need to get to the main terminal's baggage claim. A gates would connect you there, while the Satellite needs you to take the North Train loop. (open www.ifly.com/sea -under QUICK LINKS click on"Terminal Map" - under it is description of terminals & transfer. 2. Kenmore Airshuttle - open http://www.kenmoreair.com/Policies - states in part "Sea-Tac shuttles drop off and pick up at Door 00 in the Scheduled Airporter waiting area at the south end of Baggage Claim. Please note that the shuttles themselves are not visible from the indoor waiting area at Door 00. Our drivers will make at least one announcement on the public address system prior to departure however it is the passenger's responsibility to be at the shuttle prior to the scheduled departure time. Shuttle vehicles are clearly marked with Kenmore Air's logo."

    Arriving on AA from Dallas Concourse A. How do I get to AA/Operated by Alaska Air in Concourse C.

     

    At SEA, all concourses are connected at post-security, enabling passengers to freely move around without having to leave the secured area.

     

  • International - Customs Bag check

    We are flying into Charlotte from Spain and then catching a connecting flight to another airport with the same airline. My understanding is that we will collect our bags as we land in Charlotte and go through customs then re-check our bags for our connecting flight. Do you know if this is all done in the same area? Will it be easy to find where to check my bags since it's the same airline (US Airways)?

     

    At CLT, US Airways uses Concourses C, D & E with corresponding gates. On arrival simply follow signs to Passport control, thereafter pick up your bag, go through customs clearance the re-check in your bag at the designated area. Thereafter proceed to your connecting Concourse and gate (Concourses are connected at the Concourse level). Your ticket and the overhead screen on arrival should indicate your gate number (i.e., C19).

     

  • Time between international/domestic fli

    How much time should I allow between a flight arriving in Houston from Costa Rica and a flight to Austin, Texas?

     

    As an international arrival at IAH, you need to go through passport check, pick up your bag, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag - note however, that if you have two separate airlines and the first one will not transfer your bag to the transfer airline's gate (check before departure) you will need to take your bag to the connecting terminal and check it in there before proceeding to your connecting gate. Normally it takes 40-55 mins from gate to gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the text to get details.

    Flying toronto to asheville via Atl. How to go from international terminal to domestic term

     

    At Toronto Airport make sure you go through U.S. Customs clearance. Also make sure (if using different airlines) that your first airline transfers to your connecting one. As arrival and departure depend on which airlines you take, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the text to get details. Your ticket & the overhead screens on arrival will indicate terminal and gate number.

    My United flight 3782 arrives Dulles July 16 11:39AM. I will change airlines to Southwest flight 289. I have allowed myself one and a half hours to checkin and change terminals. Do I need more time?

     

    You arrive at IAD via United at gate D10 and depart via Southwest at gate B50 . Arriving passengers: Follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; international arrivals will board the shuttle to US Customs; there you go through passport check, retrieve your bag, go through customs clearance and re-check in your bag with Southwest. Midfield Concourses A/B are connected to the main terminal via walkway in the center. You need to walk towards B gate 50. - Your time is adequate.
