  • US to Int'l Transfer
    May 31, 2012
    1
    I'm flying from the US with a transfer to an Int'l flight to Europe (United to AirCanada). Do I just go from one gate to the next in the Int'l terminal or do I need to clear customs with baggage?

     

    1. You arrive at YVR via United at the International Terminal, Concourse E (E gates) and will depart via AirCanada from the Domestic Terminal, Concourse C (C gates). 2. Both terminals are connected. 3. Passengers arriving from the United States: Upon arrival at Vancouver Airport, you go through Canadian Customs and check the illuminated display panels for your assigned carousel number, then proceed to the baggage claim area where you find baggage trolleys. Your airline representative can, at your request, also call for a porter. Before proceeding to the public hall, present your customs declaration card to CBSA border services, where you might be directed for further manual inspection or search, if deemed necessary. 4. Thereafter simply follow signs to your connecting C gate.

     

  • CHANGE OF TERMINAL AT AMS TRANSFER
    May 31, 2012

    I AM TRAVELING FROM SAN FRANSISCO TO MUMBAI BY KLM AND ARRIVE AT AMS AT 9.15 AM AND HAVE TO TAKE A FRIGHT AMS TO MUMBAI BY DELTA AT 10.20 AM. WHETHER ONE HOUR IS SUFFICIENT TO TRANSFER FROM ARRIVAL TERMINAL TO DEPARTURE TERMINAL. WHAT ARE ALL THE SECURITY CHECKS I MAY HAVE TO UNDERGO. I AM AN INDIAN CITIZEN. MY EMAIL IS vashanbhag04@gmail.com

     

    1. AMS has one large passenger terminal with three-levels - and Concourses/Piers 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. 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. Look at your ticket & on arrival at overhead screens to find your departure gate; then follow signs. Do hurry!

    When switching terminals 1 to 3 at SFO, will I need to go thru security again?

     

    All four terminals are connected in the unsecured areas by the Red & Blue lines of the AirTrain - yes yuo have to go through security check again.

  • Is this enough time to make transfer?
    May 31, 2012
    1
    We're flying PDX->MSP on Delta on Dec 24, and then transferring to a MSP->Amsterdam Delta flight. We have 59 minutes to make the connection. Will this be enough time?

     

    Delta operates out of the Lindbergh Terminal of MSP and uses all Concourses A through G for its flights. Concourse Connections: Concourses C & A are served by a tram; a connector between Concourses C & A connects to Concourse B by a short tunnel; and the Concourse Connector Bridge connects Concourses G & C. Concourses G, F, E & D can be reached by foot. Your ticket should indicate arrivals & departures gates (i.e., C10, A2). One hour connecting time should suffice.

     

  • JFK connect terminal 5 to3
    May 31, 2012

    How can I get from Terminal 5 to terminal 3 international with 6 bags? Can luggage carts get on Airtrain?

     

    1. checking in 6 bags will cost you a bundle! Make sure you find out from JetBlue what your total cost for checking in bags will be; also find out if they will transfer your bags at JFK from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 departure gate - not all airlines do. You may be getting a much better deal if you choose a freight carrier to ship bags to end destination. 2. If indeed you need to transfer all these bags over to T3, contact JFK at (718) 244 2444 to find out how to proceed. You cannot take all those bags onto the AirTrain. 3. Directions from T5 to T3: near gate 25 or the opposite gate 1 take walkway to Sywalk and station; get off at T3 outside domestic arrivals, go through security check and on to your gate.

     

  • Allegiant baggage claim

    Where do we get our luggage from an Allegiant flight so we can check this luggage for a Hawaiian Airlines flight?

     

    You did not mention which Airport you use. However, after arrival via Allegiant, follow signs to Baggage Claim at the arrivals level, pick up your bag, proceed to the departures level and check in your bag at the Hawaiian Airline counter.

    Can I connect from Cape Air in Concourse C to United in Concourse A in 37 minutes from touchdown to departure?

     

    At STL both Concourses B, C & A are in Terminal 1 and are connected to each other. Make sure by checking your ticket & on arrival the overhead screens that United departs from Concourse A - my listing is Concourse B. Gates are numbered A1-8, B1-18 & C1-13. Transfer time is sufficient.

    I will be arriving at DFW (in terminal C, I suppose) on Thurs at 8:50 PM on an American flight from FLL. I have a connecting flight to Brisbane AU on Qantas (in Terminal D) at 9:55PM. I will not have to retrieve luggage, only transfer. Will I have to go through security again and would there be enough time to make the Qantas flight if I did?

     

    1. American uses both Terminals A & C, which have corresponding gate numbers - your ticket should indicate which terminal. Due to the long concourses and the distance between the terminals, the elevated 'Skylink' train starts in the International Terminal D at several points and then connects to the other terminals in their gateway center: Station escalator/ elevator locations for the Skylink: at TA between A13-A16 & A29-A39; at TB between both B9-B12 & B28-B31; at TD between both D11-20 & D24-34; Skylink runs every 2 mins, taking on average 5 mins. No need to go through security again. You have plenty of time.

     

    Many thanks for the reply, it is extremely appreciated. This site is really super good!!

    First time flying into Bos/Logan on JetBlue with taking a flight on Cape Air over MV...if I check a bag will I be able to retrive intime 1/2 differance in time or should I do a carry on...also how far is it between airlines as I saw that they both our serviced out of Terminal C

     

    Yes, both JetBlue and Cape Air use Terminal C at BOS. Terminal C has gates C11-20, in center C25-36 and C4-42. Your ticket & the overhead screens on arrival will tell you the gate number. Find out from JetBlue if they transfer your checked bag to Cape Air. If not, you would have to go down to the Arrivals level, pick up your bag, go up to departure level and check in your bag at Cape Air counter before proceeding to your gate. You can avoid this by only using a carry-on bag.

     

  • Terminal 3 to 5

    Can we get from terminal 3 to 5 in 60 minutes? How do we do this?

     

    At ORD, Between T5's ATS level and the domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3, the ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes - it makes its loop run counter clockwise (T1 is the last stop) - the full loop takes at least 30 mins. You have enough time. When arriving at ORD, simply follow signs to the ATS Train.

    Where do you board the shuttle bus at terminal F?

     

    Shuttle buses depart outside of the Arrivals level / baggage claim. You can also connect to all other terminals using moving walkways - all terminals are connected at post-security areas, no need to go through security if using walkways.

     

  • UNITED FLT FROM MEXICO TO VA BRISBANE

    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.
