  • Terminal A to Terminal C Transfer
    Sep 19, 2012

    I am traveling with elderly parents arriving at Terminal A from Indianapolis and flying to Munich from Terminal C. What is the easiest, fastest way from Terminal A to Terminal C? Thank you.

     

    On arrival at EWR's Terminal A follow signs to the Airtrain connecting to Terminal C - at Terminal C you will need to go through security check before continuing to your connecting gate.

     

    Thank you very much. Is there also a bus service within the terminal (rather than going through security again). We only have one hour 25 min to make our connection.

     

    There is a shuttle directly from A to C but with only 25 minutes for a connection, you'll be pushing it either way. The bus doesn't run as soon as you get there so you may have to sit on it for a bit before leaving, then you have to travel across to C. Not only that, but you may find that the stop is at the opposite end of C (which is huge) than where your gate is. If that's the case, especially with 2 elderly parents... it could be a close call. On the other hand, the shuttle is much faster and if the lines at security are low, you might fly through. But if the lines are long, you're in trouble. In addition, the security screeners were, in my opinion, extremely rude and seemed to take pleasure in holding up the line and taking people out for extra screening. If it were me, I'd opt for the bus but you didn't give yourself much room to breathe on the schedule. You better hope your plane isn't late to begin with.

     

    Thank you--our connection time is one hour and twenty five minutes (not just 25 min). My question is---IF we take the bus that goes from A to C--do we have to go through security again? It's my understanding that we would have to go through security again IF we take the Airtrain. I appreciate YOUR help. Thank you.

     

    Sorry, I misread that as just 25 minutes. 1:25 is about the same amount of time I had to connect from A to C. No, if you take the bus from A to C there is no security check since the boarding stations for the bus are inside the terminal. You have to leave the secured area to get to the Airtrain so if you did take that, you would definitely have to go through security again when arriving at C. So, in summary: Bus - No Security Check; Airtrain - Security Check

     

    Thank you SO much---this is what I was hoping for:). Last question--promise---where do I catch the bus--what level/near what gate in Terminal A? Thank you again--I really appreciate this info! Taking the bus will really help us with time.

     

    I believe the door for the bus is next to Gate A28. It's the first gate on the right if facing the exit. Now, I'm not exactly sure if there are any other ways to get to the bus because I believe Terminal A is split into 3 round areas which are tiny. If you happen to arrive in one of the other two sections (not the A20s) then there might not be a bus terminal and, from what I recall, the security check was in the narrow hallway leading to the A20s area. So if you're not in the A20s, take a look for bus signs. It should be easy because, like I said, the areas are small. If there are none, then you'll likely need to go through Security to get to the bus. If that's the case, you might be better off just taking the AirTrain... Though I'd see if the line into the A20s is short. Though they might not even let you in if your boarding Gate isn't there. It IS an odd airport. Sorry I couldn't be more clear. I hope that helps.

    I have 45 minutes to get from Delta terminal D to Terminal A air canada..is it walking distance between the 2 terminals

     

    On arrival at LGA, Terminal D you need to take shuttle bus Route A, serving all terminals 4am-11:30pm - running eery 10-15 mins.

     

  • Skywest commuter moving to Terminal 1

    I have told by the 1k check-in folks that as part of the Terminal 3 upgrade, United domestic/international is staying in Terminal 3 and some Skywest flights are moving to Terminal 1. You have to leave the sterile area and so you have to route through security again between flights. On top of that, there is little if any Sywest/United support in Terminal 1. ---Not good. Unless they come up with a terminal to terminal shuttle that keeps you in the sterile area, connections are really going to be really tight.

    It is fast through premium class (minutes), but through the regular line, arrive 2-3 hours minimum before time. I have watched airlines refuse boarding to ticketed passengers if they did not meet the international check-in time requirement. Needless to say the passengers were not happy as the re-booking or added hotel costs are on the passengers nickel in such circumstances.

     

    Thank you for sharing your information regarding SFO Skywest changes and security checkpoint lines. You have made a considerable contribution!

    Hard as a rock, think the guy thought he could get away with it because he toasted it. Nope. $3 bagel and cream cheese. Not so great American bagels.

    Food was just ok. Very small portions way overpriced. Sandwiches are four or five inches long, nothing like in the pictures. Tasty but not filing. I liked the local cookie bites. Spend your money elsewhere.

    I am connecting from one flight to another (arriving and departing from Term D) with 40 min in between. I expect to arrive at gate 34 and depart from gate 16. Is it better to walk/run or to take the Skytram? Thanks for the help.

     

    The Skylink stops are near gates D1, D20, D25 & D34. or you can walk. However, if you are an international arrival at DFW, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, & go through customs clearance before proceeding to your connecting gate - you would not make the connection timewise.

    Hello, I would like to know if it is reasonable to book a flight with this connection on a christmas holiday time? Thanks! (only 1h 8min layover) San Diego (San Diego Intl.) to Washington (IAD) UNITED 554 Arrive 8:47pm Washington (IAD) to Munich (Franz Josef Strauss Intl.) Lufthansa 415 Depart 9:55pm

     

    United uses Concourses A, B & C with corresponding gates. Lufthansa is in Concourse B. The Aerotrain connects in the center A/B & C/D midfield concourses. You have enough time. On arrival at IAD, follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign;

    Hi, I am arriving at 6 a.m. on Sept 12 via DL70 and my friend is arriving on the same day 2 hrs 10 mins later via DL266. Can you suggest a place where we can both meet. We will not be having our phones. So please help me? We are both travelling from the US.

     

    When you arrive at AMS, at the baggage claim look at overhead screens for your friend's arrival time and meet him in the Arrivals Hall, closest to the information counter. Inside the first level are separate sections, marked as 'Arrivals 1' through 'Arrivals 4'(find out which Arrival section he will come to: This level also includes Information desks, bars & restaurants, stores, a hairdresser, a service center, a supermarket and baggage storage & lockers.

    WHAT TERMINAL IS GATE T-3 LOCATED???

     

    There is no T3 - DFW Airport has Terminals TA through TD with corresponding gates. Open www.ifly.com/dfw, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, scroll down to text & you find details, including airlines serving those terminals.

     

  • transfer time

    I have two seperate tickets - IST to IAD with Turkish Airlines (arrival time 5:45 pm) and IAD to SFO with Virgin America (departure time 8:35 pm). Do you think I can make the transfer within 2hr 50 min ? Thank you!

     

    All international arrivals at IAD Airport are being transported to the International Arrivals Building at the west end of the main terminal for TSA clearance. You need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance, and in your case (2 separate tickets) re-check-in your bag at Virgin America counter on arrivals level. (Also you may need a new boarding pass). Your connecting flight is with Virgin America at Midfield Concourse A , which can be reached on foot from the main terminal. You have plenty of time.
