  • Houston to sa jose connection 31 min ?
    Dec 8, 2012
    1
    We are coming in from Chicago via United and need to connect for flight to San Jose. We only have a 31 min connection time. Flight from Chicago is UA435, Flight from Houston to San Jose is UA1055. Do you have any suggestions for us to ensure we catch our flight from houston to San Jose? Should we take the train or walk to terminal?

     

    Your transfer time does not allow for any incoming delay! Hurry! United uses Terminals A, B & E. (Note there are three San Jose Airports - yours is SJO). Could not get today's arrivals for incoming flight, but your departure to SJO is at Terminal E, at E gates. On arrival follow signs to the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E. NOTE: Terminal E has basically three separate buildings: (a) If you get off the TerminaLink, you find the ticketing area to the right; this area also has an escalator to Level 1, International Arrivals, which has in the lobby a passenger greeting area. Once you get through security check on either side, you can proceed to the gate area. The left-side gateway extension has gates E1 through gates E11, while to the right are gates E12 to E24.

     

  • Connect SW to Alaska Air Mexico Flight
    Dec 10, 2012
    2
    Connecting from SW-terminal 1 to Alaska Air Mexico flight-I think terminal 6. Will I have to get bags and recheck internationally? How do I get from Terminal 1 to terminal 6? Is there a walkway available?

     

    1. Only international arrivals at US airports need to go through customs clearance process. 2. If SW transfers bags to your Alaska flight, you can walk between Terminals T1 & T7 by using the cross road between the parking structures; in the center of this walkway is access to the round 'Theme Building') - if SW does not transfer your bags, you need to claim them at T1 - and take either a cart outside and walk over to T7-T6 (both connected via escalators on their ground level by a tunnel) or take bag on the shuttle bus - LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', running every 12-15 mins. Your next stops would be T2, T3, TIBIT, on to T4, T5, T6 - six stops or 15 mins.

     

    Southwest will not transfer your bags. You will have to claim them and re-check them with Alaska.

  • Time needed betw non connected flights

    I arrive at FCO at 10.00 with Aegean airlines,then getting an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin at 12.05.As I've seen,these airlines are both in Terminal 3 but the flights are not connected. What's the procedure? Do I have to take my baggage at the baggage reclaim,then get out from the arrival area and check in for the second flight,or do I just follow signs and get transferred? are 2 hours enough for the whole procedure?

     

    Yes both Aegean and Aer Lingus use Terminal 3 at FCO, which is the largest of the terminals with gates D1-10, G1-14 & H6-19. You need to go through non-Schengen (foreign) passport control and, if Aegean does not transfer your bags to your departing Dublin flight, you need to claim your bags and check them in with Aer Lingus, then go through security check and on to your connecting gate. You have enough time.

     

  • JetBlue to United Airlines

    I have an incoming flight from Buffalo (JetBlue) and outgoing to San Francisco (United) - what is the best transfer route?

     

    At JFK, JetBlue uses both Terminals 4 & 5, while United uses Terminal 7. T4 has Concourse A, gates A2-7, and Concourse B,gates B20-30 and an inside AirTrain station. T5 has 25 gates (no concourses). T7 has on its Concourse level 12 gates surrounding it. On arrival at JFK, follow the Airtrain sign and take it to Terminal 7. There you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. CHECK with JetBlue if they transfer your bags to United flight - if not you need to claim your bag on arrival and take it with you to T7, & check it in with United.

     

  • AS to Cape Air

    I'm flying from SEA to STL on Alaska Air - connecting to Cape Air to UIN. What is the process? Gates, shuttles - in / out ??

     

    At STL, both airlines use Terminal 1 - Alaska uses Concourse A (A gates) and Cape Air uses Concourse C (C gates). Look at overhead screens for your connecting flight and gate numbers.

    I arrive at Terminal 2F and need to take a connection from Terminal 2E. I only have one hour and twenty minutes to change terminals. How long will it take me to get there? Merci!

     

    According to CDG, there are 2 connections: (1) International Connection: Follow 'Flight Connections' sign; take fraa Aeroports de Paris shuttle to TE. (2) Other Flight Connections: after debarkation, follow 'Exit & Baggage Reclaim" sign; then follow sign for Terminal 2E.

    I have an AA flight from Toronto that arrives at 8:10 and have to transfer to a South African airlines flight which leaves at 10:40. Do I have enough time to get my bags and transfer?

     

    1. I presume you already checked with AA and they do NOT transfer bags (in which case you need to take them to the connecting terminal and re-check them in at the South African airline counter on the departures level prior to proceeding to your next gate). Do take advantage of Toronto's US customs clearance, saving you time at JFK! You arrive via AA at Terminal 8 and depart from Terminal 4. On Arrival follow signs to the "Airtrain" which runs between all terminals on average every 8 mins., but in the non-secured area. In any case you need, at Terminal 4, go through security check. T4's Concourse level has Concourse A with gates A2-7, and Concourse B with gates B20-30. You have plenty of time!

  • Terminal 5 (International) to Terminal 3
    Dec 7, 2012

    My parents are arriving via Iberia on Terminal 5 and Fly out on Domestic American Airlines (Terminal 3). Is the place where they retrieve the bags before Immigrations/Customs easy to find/close to Immigrations/same floor? Once done with Customs, where do they drop the bags for the next domestic flight and is it true that they can't drop them as they are not same airline (I am under the impression bags fly to final destination). I understand they need to go one floor up and get a shuttle to get to Terminal 3? Do they arriveat the correct floor for departures on Terminal 3? Do they go through Secutity check? Thanks!

     

    1. You need to find out from Iberia whether they will transfer bags to the American Airline connecting flight - not all airlines do - in which case your parents would need, after customs clearance, take their bags along to Terminal 3, and check them in at the Departures level at the AA counter. On arrival at ORD, follow other passengers as they need to go through passport check, pick up bags & go through customs clearance and (if Iberia transfers bag) - re-check-in bags where indicated. 2. After exiting the Federal Inspection and luggage re-check areas, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System and take the ATS shuttle train connecting to Terminal 3. At T3 they may have to go through security check before proceeding, on the Departures level, to their Concourse & gate. Concourses G,H,K&L surround the Rotunda - most likely American will use Concourse L with gates L1-10.

     

    Iberia should check your bags through on the American flight assuming they were bought on the same reservation since Iberia and American are codeshare partners in OneWorld. They should be able to drop their bags after collection and customs in T5 for their AA flight, so they'll just have to take the ATS from T5 to T3 which is just one stop. Yes, they will have to go through security again in T3. The ATS stop is on the departure level, but you have to go up and over the access road, to get to the actual departure level. Regardless, the departure level is easy to find from the T3 ATS stop.

    I am flying into Detroit out of Toronto Pearson on a Saturday. I am going on to Los Angelos. Will my stopover of only 100 mins. be enough time to catch my flight when I am not familiar with this airport. Please help if you can. Thanks

     

    Glad to oblige! 1. If using different airlines, make sure your bags are automatically being transferred - if not, you would have to check them in at their airline counter before proceeding to your next gate. 2. Use Toronto's U.S. customs clearance, saving you time at DTW. 3. Detroit has two terminals - the McNamara with A, B & C gates, and the North Terminal with D gates. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate your connecting gate. For transfer options, and terminal details, click on www.ifly.com/dtw, and click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text below the map. Your time will suffice.

     

    Assuming both of your flights are on Delta, you have plenty of time

     

  • JFK (port f entry) - CLT (30 min)- GNV

    Hello, I am Flying from India to JFK which would be my port of entry and from there i hav flight to CLT (US airways) and again after 30 min i have a flight to Gainesville reginal airport (US airways again).. Will i need to go through customs again??? Will i hav to check in luggage again (I have a single ticket issued) and according to current status of both flights one would arrive at terminal C and other would depart frm terminal E...Will i make it?? Plz reply..

     

    1. At JFK you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and then recheck in your bags where indicated. Thereafter, proceed to the departures level, go through security check & on to your connecting gate. At CLT you will arrive at Concourse C and need to transfer to Conccorse E using US Airways Express: The y-shaped gateway with 36 gates includes gates E1 to E9, and then divides to the right to gates E10 to E19, and to the left to gates E20 to E38. All Concourses surround the main terminal - no shuttle service is needed. Just follow signs. You have enough time, provided that your incoming flight is not seriously delayed. and click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text below the map.

    Hello, I arrive at 07:55 at Schipol from Singapore and have an easy jet flight at 9:45. Even if i have my check in online, i still have to go through emmigration to go to the departures terminal and then back in again, is that correct? Do you believe it is enough time? Thank you!

     

    On arrival at AMS, you will have to follow signs for 'Baggage Hall' & 'Arrivals Hall'--if applicable. Go through passport control and poceed to the baggage belts in the baggage hall (ground level). Claim your bags & pass with them through Customs for security check. If you have nothing to declare proceed to the arrivals hall through the green passageway. Then note that : Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. 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.

     

  • 1:30 enough to fly out internationally?

    I have a domestic flight into Detroit via Delta @ Terminal M. My outbound international flight is by Air France also @ Terminal M. Will an hour and a half be enough since I do not have to do customs? Please help! I appreciate your effort!

     

    Delta uses the McNamara Terminal which has Concourses A, B & C, with corresponding gates. Note that Concourse A of McNamara has 1.5 miles of moving walkways, but also uses the Express Tram serving 3 stations - the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 3. Concouses B (left) & C (right) can only be reached from Concourse A, at its center, by using the tunnel. Note: C gates C1-C7 are on the lower level, reached in the center of B/C via escalator. Your boarding pass and the overhead screen will indicate flight and gate number. Only international arrivals need to go through customs procedure. You have plenty of time!
