  • UNITED FLT FROM MEXICO TO VA BRISBANE
    May 29, 2012
    1
    I have a flt arriving from Mexico on United airlines Terminal 7 and have 3 hrs between flt to Australia at Terminal 3. I also have to visit Security at Terminal 3 to pick up items left on outbound flt. Would it be quicker to run/walk rather than wait for connection bus???

     

    As an international arrival at LAX, you need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & recheck-in your bags (a 35-50 min. procedure. Walking is not recommend, as you would need to navigate the parking structures located between the two sides of the U-shaped terminal arrangement. As you have plenty of time, take the blue-marked LAX bus route A on lower arrivals level island in front of TBIT, under sign "LAX Shuttle Airline Connection", which runs every 12-15 mins, makes the following stops after T7: T8, T1, T2, T3 - 4 stops or 10 mins. You need to go through security check at T3.

    how to go from terminal E to TERMINAL B

     

    On arrival at International Terminal E, you need to go first through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby and take the escalator down to the inter-terminal train to Terminals A, B & C, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. (Check overhead screens on arrival at IAH for your connecting flight's gate number & departure time. Transfer time, including customs clearance - at least one hour.

    Never been to PHL airport. WIll be arriving on USAir from FL, and departing on USAir flight to Europe. How far from domestic arrival area to international

     

    US Airways serves Concourses B & C, U.S. Airways Express serves Concourse F, all concourses have corresponding gates (i.e., A17, B16). Look at your ticket for your arrival gate at PHL. Your departure will be at Concourse TA-West which serves all international flights. To get from the arriving concourse to TA-West, use the moving walkways (all at post-security).

     

  • 2 hrs to transfer KLM from US to SAS CPH
    May 29, 2012

    Arrive from US on KLM to Amsteram at 8am catching SAS to Copenhagen dep 10:25 am. Know i will go thru customs, if carry on luggage can i go stright to next flight without any more security? If checked baggage do i have to leave security and find SAS to check bag to CPH? does 2 hrs cover this? Will fly back into Amsterdam from Oslo and stay for 4 days. Assume i can arr this time without customs and go straight to train?

     

    You are considered a 'non-Schengen' (foreign) traveler; therefore you need to go through passport check at AMS (both ways) and, if you have checked bags, pick them up, go through customs clearance & re-check them in. Two hours should suffice. (non-Schengen means countries not participating in the Schengen agreement)

     

  • ATL to Aruba

    I will be arriving in ATL from Ft. Myers, FL, then on to Aruba via Delta. Is checked baggae still automatically transferred to the connecting flight to Aruba, or will I need to pick it up and then check it again at the International Terminal?

     

    At Ft. Myers Airport you need to find out if the airline you take to ATL will transfer to Delta connecting flight not all airlines do, in which case you would have to claim your bag and re-check it in with Delta before proceding to your connecting gate. On arrival at ATL, look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight, gate number & time. Read up on new terminal and transfer options by opening www.ifly.com/atl and click on "Terminal Map" under Quick Links - move screen down to start of description.

  • How to go from Terminal D to Terminal C

    How to go from Terminal D(international flight) to connecting domestic flight inTerminal C? Is it possible to just walk over inside the security or should we take terminal interlink train? in either case do we need to go through security again?

     

    The International Arrivals building (part of TE)at IAH can be accessed from both TE and TD, with separate US Customs. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby, which has an escalator down to the below-ground inter-terminal train to Terminal C. There you need to go through security again. Note that C gates are divided into east gates C14-24 & west gates C29-45. The overhead screens on arrival at IAH will indicate your gate and departure time.

     

    My question is do i need to take train after customs and re--checkin to go to TC from terminal TD or is it possible for me to walk over from TD to TC? My wife is travelling with 2 small kids so it is easier for her to walk over than take train. hence the question. Now if she has to take train which one because i believe there are 2 the inter link one or inter-terminal one which is accessible from international arrivals lobby?

     

  • Transfer Time?

    I will arrive on CZ326 (China Southern) on 18th June at 06:45 with luggage booked through to Newcastle UK (KL953), that flight leaving at 08:10 the same day. How long will I need to get from one gate to the next - I am fairly old and slow!!. I presume that I won't have to go through baggage or passport control . Is that correct? For the record I have both Australian and EU passports.

     

    Unless your plane arrives at Schiphol Airport very late, you have enough time for transfer. AMS has excellent directional signs; but do not hesitate to ask any AMS attendant for asstance. AMS has one large passenger terminal with three-levels - everything is under one roof, including Piers (Concourses) B-C, D, E, F, G-H & M: Arrivals is on the ground level and Departures is on the second level. Arriving passengers at AMS need to go through passport control; however, passengers, whose countries are EU members, and whose passport has a chip, can now us the new self-service passport control. 1. The Arrivals level: Inside the first level are separate sections, marked as 'Arrivals 1' through 'Arrivals 4': Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. A Transfer Assistance booth is close to the supermarket. On arrival look at the overhead screens to find your connecting flight, gate number and departure time. The Departures level of the passenger terminal has Departure areas 1, 2 & 3, corresponding Lounges 1 to 4 (Lounge 1 is the Schengen lounge), and Concourses with Gate Areas B-C, D, E, F, G-H, & M. Departures 1 & 2 have security checkpoints and access to Lounges 1 & 2 and Gates B-C, D & E, while at the opposite side Departures 3 & 4 have security checkpoints and access to Lounges 3 & 4 and Gates F, G-H & M. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. 2. The Departures level of the passenger terminal has Departure areas 1, 2 & 3, corresponding Lounges 1 to 4 (Lounge 1 is the Schengen lounge), and Concourses with Gate Areas B-C, D, E, F, G-H, & M. Departures 1 & 2 have ticket counters 3 to 16, security checkpoints and access to Lounges 1 & 2 and Gates B-C, D & E, while at the opposite side Departures 3 & 4 have ticket counters 17 to 32, security checkpoints and access to Lounges 3 & 4 and Gates F, G-H & M. The center has a Previum Service point, access to casino, children's corner & other services. Bars & restaurants, as well as shops are located in the post-security section of all areas. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. 3. The Top Level of the passsenger terminal can be reached by stairways from the second floor. The Lounge 1 area stairs lead to gates D59-D87, with airline lounge 25 and other amenities, including first aid; the Lounge 2 area stairs lead to airline lounges 40-52 and amenities, and the Lounge 3 area stairs lead up to airline lounges 40-52 and other amenities, including a shower. 4. Passengers flying with BMIbaby, Flybe, EasyJet, Jet-2 or Air Berlin most likely depart from Gates H or M - check your boarding pass. Once the flight info screens indicate 'boarding' (40 mins prior to departure), you can proceed to your gate. The pier has no restaurants, bars or shops. 5. Flight Transfers: At transfer kiosks you can check connecting flight information or book a new fight. Transfer desks T2 & T3 are located in Lounge 1; desks T4 & T5 at D gate area; desk T6 at E gate area & desk T9 at G gate area.

     

    1 hr 25 mins should be plenty of time for your transfer. While I cannot give you the gate numbers for your arrival and departure (your ticket may indicate it), note that AMS Airport has on level 1 arrivals and level 2 departures. Since you have an EU passport, you will only have to go through passport check at arrivals. You need to make sure that China Southern will transfer your bags to KLM flight - if not, you would have to claim your bags and re-check them in with KLM. On arrival, look at the overhead screens to find your connecting flight number, gate and departure time. The transfer desk will help you if you need further directions, so will any other airport attendant.

  • FROM TERMINAL I TO TERMINAL S

    HI IìM ARRIVIING FROM ROM TO ALTANTA FLIGHT AZ 7600 TERMINAL I AND I'M GOING TO DENVER FROM TERMINAL S WITH FLIGHT DL115. HOW CAN MOVE BETWEEN TERMINAL I AND TERMINAL S

     

    Arriving at ATL from an international flight & transferring to a domestic flight: After going through International Arrivals customs clearance procedure (passport control, pick-up of bags, going through customs clearance & re-checking-in bag (35-50 mins), follow signs to the 'Plane Train' serving all concourses in the center of their gate arrangements. Also, the Terminal Connector Shuttle located outside the Arrivals level, which takes you to the South Terminal - a 12-minute ride.

  • Is there a shortcut from T2 E gates to T1 C gates?
    May 27, 2012

    Is there a shortcut from T2 E gates to T1 C gates?

     

    Yes: On arrival at ORD from E-gates, walk towards the front of the E gate area, cross the Mezzanine level (both E & F are on this level) to the other side for the F gates. Then proceed as follows: the secured area of the Departures level, has, right after you walk from gate F8 past gate F1, at right end a connector to T1. At T1 you will arrive again in the secured area, where you should proceed to closeby gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates, turn left to gate C15.

     

  • How to get from South Term to Int'l Term
    May 26, 2012

    Flying Delta to ATL South Terminal and need to be at International Terminal for a flight to Cabo San Lucas (Mexico). Got 1hr 10min to make the transfer. Is it easy to get to International Terminal? First time at this airport.

     

    At ATL, upon arrival look up at the overhead screen to find your connecting flight and gate number (E or F gates); then follow signs and take the Airtrain to the new Maynard International Terminal - head for either Concourse E or F with corresponding gates. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you for the super fast reply!
