  • Check Point
    May 24, 2012

    Do I have to pass a check point at Terminal A West if I come from a flight that arrived on Terminal B?

     

    At PHL, Terminal A-West is the only terminal with US Immigration & Customs. Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). Transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks, as all but Terminal F are connected at post-security areas.

  • Change Terminal + Airline
    May 24, 2012
    1
    I have 2 hours to change terminals and airline (arriving with Swiss @T5, need to connect to United @T1). Is two hours enough to get through immigration & customs + change the terminal and airline? Also will I need to check in again @T1?

     

    1. Make sure that Swiss is transferring bags at ORD to United (not all Airlines transfer, in which case you would need to take your bag and check it in at T1. 2. Count in an hour for going through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag. 3. Thereafter, proceed up one level up to the Airport Transit System where you can easily connect to T1 via the free ATS shuttle train running every few minutes - T1 is the last stop - taking about 15 mins. At T1 you will arrive again in the secured area, where you should proceed (depending on your departure gate) to closeby gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates, turn left to gate C15.

     

  • Alaska Air from Vancouver Canada
    May 24, 2012

    I am arriving on an Alaska AIr flight at 2:30 from Canada, and leave on a SUn Country flight to Minneapolis at 5:30. I need to retrieve my luggage and check in at Sun Country - Do I have time and how Do i do this.

     

    Vancouver airport has U.S. customs clearance - no need to to pass customs at SEA. What you need is to find out whether Alaska Air will automatically transfer your bags at SEA to Sun Country flight - not all airlines do, in which case you would need to take your bag and check it in with Sun Country before proceeding to your connecting gate: Alaska uses A, C, D Concourses & Satellite North; Sun Country uses Concourse A. - all concourses are connected at post-security.

     

    What is U.S. customs clearance in Vancouver - can anyone use this - is there a charge? My luggage will not be transferred by Alaska Air automatically. Thank You.

    I have 36 mins to get from terminal B to terminal E - will I make it

     

    At CLT, Terminal B - square-shaped with gateways at each corner - B60-66, B68-75, 76-83 & 84-88; it connects near gates 84-88 to TE. Terminal E gates have one one side gates E12-24, on the opposite side E1-11. On Arrival at IAH, check the overhead screen to find your departing flight number & gate; then hurry - you can make it in time.

    Can i get from Term A to Term D without going back thru security?

     

    At LAS, Terminal 1, you need to connect from arriving A gates via C gates to D gates. The Esplanade connects all gates. A, B & C gates are connected: C gates C25-19 are connected by the C-Gate Tram, while the Satellite C gates C1-C7 are connected by the D-Gate Tram. The separate D gate satellite, formed like a crab with four 'legs', houses gates D1-D6; D16-D26; D50-D59; D32-D43 - all connected by the D-Gate Tram - which also connects satellite concourses C & D with the centralized check-in and baggage claim areas.

    where should i park for terminal C/Jet Blue? Thanks

     

    At BOS you can take the Central Parking garage across from Terminal C, or you can use the Economy Parking Garage at the intersection of Service Road & Prescott Street (follow signs from inbound roadway); a free shuttle bus makes the round every 15-20 mins, 24/7. 5. Off-Airport Logan Express parking lots - located in Braintree, Framingham, Peabody & Woburn - with full-sevice bus terminals -to Logan Airport use the MBTA Blue orSilver Line, the water shuttle, bus or shared van service (see massport.com).

     

  • Enough layover time?

    If I'm flying in on Southwest, arriving at 7:45AM, and the connecting Southwest flight is at 8:25AM on a Thursday - is that enough time to get from one gate to the other?

     

    At Midway Airport, Southwest uses both Concourses A & B with corresponding gates. You may have to walk to another concourse - look at your ticket & on arrival at MDW at overhead screens to see which gate you depart from. Either way you have enough time.

  • 1 hour 10 minute transfer time

    I have U.S. passport. I am flying from Paris via Air France to AMS. I then fly KLM to SFO. Is 1 hour 10 minutes sufficient time to transfer?

     

    As a non-Schengen (U.S.) arrival you need to go through immigration/ customs clearance first. Thereafter proceed to level 2: 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). 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. Your time should be sufficient. 6. Pier H exception: Gate numbers are not announced until 40 mins prior to departure.

  • Hawaiian to Delta

    My family and I will be flying in on Hawaiian at 7:10am and are hoping to fly out on Delta at 8:00am. If we only have carry on will we have enough time? Thanks!

     

    You arrive at LAS in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1, Concourse D (D gates). An exterior sidewalk connects both T1 and T2 (not recommended though in inclement weather condition. Alternatively, a courtesy shuttle is also available to transport travelers between terminals. Look for the shuttle stop located in the center media outside of Terminal 2. You have enough time - however at Terminal 1 you need to go through security check again.

     

  • Transiting from terminal 5 to 3

    I have 2hrs and 10mins to transit from terminal 5 to 3 and check in. Is it quicker to take the shuttle or walk? And if walking, what is the easiest route? Thanks.

     

    You have two options at LAX to get from Terminal 5 to T3 - (a) exit T5, go left to T4, proceed around the bend to the Bradley Terminal, and continue around the bend to T3 - at most 15 mins; (b) if taking the shuttle bus: the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island (in front of each terminal), under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Your stops after T5 will be T6 - T8, around the bend to T1, T2 & T3 - 6 stops or 15 mins. In both instances you need to go through security check at T3.
