    Hi, I'll be coming in from MSY on Feb28@0905pm and have to continue to FRA@2150. Is 45 minutes really enough????? Thanks for the help

     

    Sorry ... that was November28 ;-)

     

    On arrival at IAD follow sign'To Baggage Claim / Ground Transportation" - then follow the AeroTrain sign. This underground train servees gates A1-32, B35-79 & C1-30. Your ticket & overhead screens on arrival should indicate your departure gate number. You have enough time.

    Hi, we will be arriving in FRA from Canada and have a connecting flight to Athens on Lufthansa. The time between flights is only 1 hour and 55 minutes. Will that be enough time to clear passport control and not miss our flight?

     

  • Passenger Drop Off at Terminal D

    I can't find a map that shows WHERE to drop off a passenger at Terminal D. Lots of Terminal maps, but why not show drop-off area??

     

    At IAH, Terminal passenger dropoff is at the right end of Terminal D (pickup at left end, with exit & entry doors in between.

     

  • Layover time for senior traveler

    I am booking a flight for my 82 year old grandmother who will be traveling alone. She will return from Puerto Vallarta on AA landing at 6:30pm at terminal D and has a connection with AA at another terminal (doesn't specify which one) leaving at 8pm (to Pittsburgh). I am wondering if this is enough time for her, given that she has to go through customs, etc. There is another option, which gives her a 3.5hr layover vs the 1.5hrs mentioned above, any suggestion on which would be better for her? If she requests a wheelchair will they take her through the entire process and will it be quicker? Thanks in advance!

     

    While your mother's arrival at DFW is in Terminal D, where she needs to go through passport check, pick up her bag (if she has a checked bag) and go through customs clearance, then re-check-in bag where indicated. American Eagle uses Terminals B & D, American Airlines uses domestic flight Terminals A & C - all with corresponding gates (i.e., gate A17). The free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Terminals A, B, C & E Skylink stations are between gates A13-16 & A29-34, B9-12 & B28-31, C8-12 & C27-32, and E8-11 & E31-32. 1.5 hours is plenty of time for transfer.

     

  • Connecting to Palermo

    I will be arriving on Delta from JFK at 12:05 pm and need to make a connection to Palermo which departs at 1:15 pm. I only have carry-on. What terminal will I arrive in and depart from? Will I have time?

     

    You arrive at Terminal 5, and need to go through their special security checks & passport control. Your departure terminal depends on which airline you use. Your ticket or the overhead screens on arrival at FCO should indicate Terminal or boarding area: Terminal 1 has Boarding Area (BA) B; T2 has BA C, T3 has BAs D, G & H - all with corresponding gates, i.e, G14. Free shuttles run between all terminals and carparks daily, every 15 mins; during 1am-4am you can also request such shuttle by using the intercom situated at every shuttle stop.

     

  • Terminal 1 - Delta re-check availability
    Nov 14, 2012

    II am flying back on AIr China and arriving in in T1. Is Delta available outside customs to re-check my bag for connecting flight?

     

    If Air China does not transfer your bags to the Delta connecting flight, you need, after going through customs clearance, take your bag along to the connecting terminal and check it in there with Delta. Note that Delta uses Terminals 2 (gates 19-29), T3 (gates 1-18) & T4 (gates A2-7 & B20-30). Take the Airtrain at T1 serving all terminals in the unsecured areas; at your connecting terminal you need to go through security check before continuing on to your gate.

     

  • Between Terminal 2 and 3 any immigration

    they seems connected but arriving and T2 and departing at T3, any requirements? this is for a US green card holder with no air transit visa on hand

     

    T1 & T2 are joined & share Arrivals level - while T1 is for domestic & Schengen flights, T2 serves both Schengen & Non-Schengen domestic flights. You might have to go through non-Schengen control before proceeding to your connecting gate. T1 houses Boarding Area B with gates B1-30; T2 houses Boarding Area C with gates C1-7 & C3-16.

     

  • SW TO CAPE AIR

    I'M FLYING IN ON SW AND FLY OUT ON CAPE AIR...HOW DO I TRAVEL FROM TERMINAL 2 TO TERMINAL 1, AND DOES IT TAKE A LONG TIME?

     

    1. If you are an international arrival at STL, note that Terminal 2 has on its lower level Immigration & Customs gates. Unless you have gone through US customs clearance at participating airports in Canada and the Caribbean, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (if SW does not transfer bags to Cape Air, you need to take them with you to T1 to re-check them in with Cape Air. You arrive at E gates and depart from Concourse C (gates C1-24). The free shuttle bus runs continuously between the 2 terminals. At T1 you need to go through security check before continuing to your connecting gate.

     

  • BAGGAGE DROP DURING TRANSFER FROM T8-T3

    i need to transfer from Qatar Airways terminal 8 to terminal 3 for delta connection.after customs/immigration is there any way i can drop my baggage in terminal 8 itself for the delta connection ?

     

    You need to find out from Qatar whether they will transfer your bags to Delta connection - if not, you would have to take your bag along on the Airtrain, connecting all terminals in their unsecured area, running on average every 8 mins - (there you would have to go to the Delta counter and re-check-in your bag)

    flying southwest from sna connecting to southwest to ewr. is 60 min sufficient to make connection?

     

    You arrive & depart at PHX Airport from Terminal 4, at C gates (C1-20). Just walk over to your connecting gate.

     

  • Enough Time

    If I land at TBIT at 12:40 will I have enough time to make a flight at 14:15 at terminal 4 at LAX

     

    Apparently you are an international arrival - meaning you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag where indicated. Then exit TBIT and walk to your right to the next terminal around the bend - T4, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. You have enough time.

    Is 50 minutes enough time to make a connection on a US Airways flight from PDX to another US Airways flight to SJO? Thanks!

     

    At PHX you arrive at, and depart from, Terminal 4, B gates (anywhere between gates B1 & B22). You have plenty of time.

    I am flying in from Dayton, Ohio on United Airlines, arriving Dulles at 11.30am. I need to get to an international flight to Singapore on United Airlines at 12.20pm. Is less than one hour enough for the connection?Do I have ample time to make the connetion? Thank you.

     

    1. On arrival at IAD Airport, look at the overhead screen to find your connecting flight & gate, then follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign. 2. United uses A, B, C & D gates (your ticket should indicate gate (i.e., A-32). A & B gates are on either side of the gateway - A gates are A1-32; B gates are B35-79. A1-A6 are for United Express. A walkway connects these concourses to the main terminal. The AeroTrain now connects separately to the A gates A1 to A6, and another one to all B gates. Near gate A6 is the shuttle bus to the D gates. C gates C1-30 & D gates D1-32 are connected by a walkway. C gates C1-30 & D gates D1-32 are connected by a walkway. You should have enough time for transfer.

  • ANA NH T7 to Air Canada AC T7

    Arriving at 16:10 on ANA from Tokyo. Connecting to Air Canada to Toronto 17:20 Does this meet minimum connection time? Have Global Entry so cuts down on the immigration/customs time. Same terminal should help too right? Baggage drop off as per usual transfers?

     

    Luckily, both ANA & AC airlines use Terminal 7 - and Global Entry indeed cuts down on customs procedure; You should have no problem connecting in time (unless ANA is seriously late).

     

    Thanks - I'll try to book it then - it may not let me book it anyways due to the minimum connection time but I'll try. Good luck and all the best to all those in NY and NJ who were affected by Sandy and the recent storm.
