    My friend is flying is flying to India his schdukle is cmh- JFK(Terminal 8) then jfk(terminal 7 ) to india.. he has a gap of 4 hours in between..is it possible for me to meet him in terminal 7 ...and do i need to get anythign for that?/...Please help

     

    You can only meet in the unsecured area of either terminal (before security check). Best place to meet up is near the information counter in the Arrivals /baggage claim area. Your friend needs to know whether his arriving airline will transfer his bags to the departing airline - if not, he needs to re-check-in his bags at T7 (and make sure he has a boarding pass for T7 departure).

     

  • Southwest gates to United gates

    What is the fastest way to get from Southwest to United gates? Can this be done without going through security again?

     

    You will arrive via Southwest at LAS, Terminal 1, at either the B or C Concourse /gate (note that the long C concourse is served by a tram). Proceed to the baggage claim area (if SW does not transfer bags to UA airlines, you need to pick up bag & take it along to T3)- outside baggage claim is the shuttle bus to Terminal 3 (the international terminal). On arrival at T3 (if you need to re-check in bags with United, go first to the departure level to do so) then go through security check and on to your gate. Again, the D gates of T3 are long and served by D-Tram. Overhead screens will tell you flight & gate number.

    My flight arrives from London at 7:25 pm at terminal 3, and my connecting flights departs at 9:00 pm from terminal 1, I think(I'm flying AA). Is that enough time to clear immigration, customs and a security check?

     

    On arrival at ORD you will arrive at the International Terminal 5 at M gates - not T3! After exiting the Federal Inspection and luggage re-check areas, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System. The freeATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level nd domestic terminal 3, your AA connection. T3 has gates areas G through L. You have enough of time.

  • MSY to IAH-Connection to MEX

    Hello, I am taking a flight to Houston from New Orleans at 10:45 am on the 15th, arriving at IAH at noon. I have a connection to catch (other airline) at 1:05 from terminal D. I have not idea what terminal I will be arriving at though. Is there any way I can make my flight to MEX if the first flight (from MSY) departures on time? I will have a carry on bag only. Do I need to pass through security again? Thanks.

     

    assuming flight from MSY is on time arrival, yes. you'll arrive at terminal B,C or E and you can walk to D form C or E but not B. figure 10 minutes 15 max to get to connecting flight. should be fine.

     

  • skylink or walk

    I noticed that skylink is only running in one direction between terminals. We need to get from terminal A29 to C17 on the 27th. Which direction does skylink go? A to C I'm hoping. We have 40 minutes between flights.

     

    At DFW, Terminals A & C are on the same side of the road lane; and the free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations on either side - running every 2 mins and taking about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. Skylink stations are between gates A13-16 & A29-34, and C8-12 & C27-32. You have enough time.

    Need Help, I am flying from Austin on Southwest, arriving at terminal one. I need to meet my parents that are arriving on United at terminal three. Can I take the tram from terminal one to terminal three

     

    On your arrival at LAS, at T1, you need to take the shuttle bus outside of the arrivals level - the tram only serves the long Concourses and gates. Note that the new T3 is partitioned on Arrivals & Departures levels by domestic (right) and international (left) flights. Arrivals level (level 0) has baggage claims 1-10 for domestic flights - meet them there.

    We will be arriving in Rome from Thailand on Thai Airways @ Terminal 3. We have exactly 1 HR 30 Mins (if there is no delay) to get to Terminal 1 for Alitania flight to Catania (purchased separately). We intend to check in online (to save time) so do we still need to go through passport control? Will we have enough time to get to our Alitania flight?

     

    On arrival at FCO, you need to go through passport check as a 'non-Schengen' (foreign) arrival. Your allotted time depends on whether Thai Airways would transfer your bags to Alitalia - if not, you would need on arrival go down to the baggage claim level and get your bags, then re-check them in with Alitalia at T1. Also, even if checking in online, you need to have a boarding pass (either printing out at home or near the check-in machines on the Departure Level's airline counters. In any event, you will have to go through security check at T1. A shuttle bus will take you from T3 to T1, departing every 15 mins. If your bags are checked through & you have a boarding pass, you will be able to make it.

     

  • Best place to gather

    Where is the best place for us to meet each other when three of our group arrive on Frontier (Terminal 1) and two on United (Terminal 3) and one on Southwest (? Terminal)?? All will have checked luggage. Arrival times are very close together (early afternoon).

     

    As one member of your group arrives via Southwest at the international terminal - where he/she needs to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs first, I suggest you all meet up at the baggage claim level - close to the information counter. To get there, the red-line of the AirTrain (an automated people mover) serves all terminals & the garage, making a continuous loop taking only minutes between stops (baggage carts have hand brakes and can be taken onto the AirTrain); however, you can also walk to your connecting terminal: walking around the entire terminal loop would take 25 minutes.

     

  • Terminal D

    I will be arriving at DFW on an international flight from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I know that I have to first clear immigration and customs upon deplaning. My question: I will be connecting with a flight operated by American Eagle. It's my understanding that both my arriving flight and my connecting flight will arrive at / depart from Terminal D. Is that correct? Will American transfer my checked bags to American Eagle after I clear Customs? (I am a US citizen living in Mexico).

     

    1. All international arrivals, including US citizens, (other than those cleared at some Canadian, Irish, and Caribbean airports with US Customs clearance) need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and if continuing flight, re-check-in bags before proceeding to connecting flight. 2. Your American Eagle flight will arrive at the International Terminal TD and depart from the domestic Terminal TB. After customs clearance, exit TD and walk to TB, where you need to go through security check and on to your gate (overhead screens will indicate gate number). Count on an hour transfer time.

    arrive terminal 2, depart terminal 4, united to usairways in 1 hour. can i make it. thanks

     

    On arrival at T2 of PHX Airport you need to exit the terminal and catch the shuttle bus at the curb to T4 where you need to go through security checkpoint A for US Airways gates A1-A14 & A17-A30; or through security checkpoint B for US Airways gates B1-B14 - the overhead screens will indicate your gate number. No time to waste!

    arrive from manchester england at13.50.terminal a , depart 15.25 terminal b to charlotte.then on to fort myers , all on us airways . will i have timeand do my bags get transfered by the airport

     

    You will arrive at PHL Airport at Terminal A West, which houses an International Arrivals Hall and a Customs hall connected to TA-West Ticketing on one end, and Concourse A-East on the other (your connecting part of Terminal A). On arrival you go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, then re-check-in bags where indicated. Then proceed to TA-East which has gates A1-13. On arrival at CLT Airport US Airways uses Terminals B, C, D & E - look at overhead screens to find your connecting terminal & gate. (for more information open www.ifly.com/clt and click on "Terminal Map under QUICK LINKS, scroll down to the detailed text for connections and terminal info.

     

    Hi Warwick...since im on a 2hr connection time soon myself I wondered if you could let me know how fast you cleared passport, bagage, bagage recheck and security to arrive at terminal b's gate? Did you make it in time? thank you in advance

  • From Terminal 2E to TGV train station

    What is the best way to get to TGV train station from terminal 2E? How long does it take? Can we purchase train ticket to Marseille at the TGV train station? Thanks

     

    At CDG - under the common area of Terminal 2, linking halls 2C through 2F is Terminal 2's only RER & TGV railroad station. Regarding train tickets, I suggest you pass by an information counter in the baggage claim area. (TGV into central Paris takes about 45 mins.).

     

    thank you very much for your prompt response

     

  • From terminal 2A to terminal 2E

    I arrive early in Terminal 2A and need to meet up with friends arriving in 2E 2 hours later. My questions are: 1) is it walking distance from 2A to 2E; 2) if not, is there afree train/shuttle from 2A to 2E; 3) do I need to go through custom in 2A upon arrival before I go to 2E; 4) once I go through custom, can I still go to 2E; 5) any recomendation as a visible meeting place in 2E? Thanks

     

    At CDG Terminal 2 has satellites 2B, 2D & 2F on one side of the driveway and 2A, 2C & 2E on the opposite side. On arrival at 2A, you go through non-Schengen (foreign) procedure, then exit the terminal and walk over to 2E. If you know your friends' flight number meet them at the baggage carousel of their airline. On return to TA, you need to go through security check before continuing to your connecting gate (T2E has L & K gates).

     

    thank you very much for your prompt response

    I will arrive from Cleveland UA1044 18.25 on 6th Oct and need to connect with UA36 20.05 to Edinburgh. Believe they arrive at the same Terminal C. Can you tell me exactly waht I need to do re bag transfer etc in order to make the connection. Thanks

     

    When checking in at Cleveland, make sure that your bags have all three airport codes on their tags; since you use the same airline that should suffice, as UA will transfer bags to connecting flights. However, UA uses for some domestic flights also Terminal A, in which case you would have to take the elevated Airtrain (signs will guide you) from TA to TC, then go through security check and on to your gate. In both instances you have enough time.
