  • Intn'l flight from Lagos

    Will the new international terminal be ready June 4th? Arriving 5:30 AM delta flt. connecting to domestic Delta 1816 to Denver. How far between the terminals?

     

    ATL's new international terminal opens May 11. 1. Arrivals at Concourses E or F have separate immigration & customs checkpoints. Thereafter bags are re-checked and transferred to connecting flights. Passenger has to pass through security check and then follow signs to the 'Plane Train' connecting international concourses E & F with all other concourses and the domestic terminal. Most likely your connecting Delta flight is out of Concourse A (with gates A1-A34), but look at the overhead screens on arrival to find your flight & gate number. For detailed terminal description open www.ifly.com/atl; click on Quick Links: Terminal Map and scroll down to the International Terminal (map, however, does not yet include new terminal).

     

  • Walk from terminal 1 to 2?
    Apr 30, 2012

    Now that the C councourse has reopened, is it still possible to walk between terminals? I'm flying in on Southwest and out on Cape Air, and would like to make the transfer without dealing with security, if possible.

     

    Yes you can walk without going through security again, as all concourses are connected, including Terminal C. You arrive at Concourse E.

     

    The answer to this is NO. The D concourse that connects terminals 1 and 2 is now blocked off. You have to leave and go through security again. Source: I flew through STL today.

     

  • Inter arrival connect to Term 1 dept

    What is the process for connecting from International flight to domestic flight departing from Terminal 1 and how long does it take on average?

     

    1. As an international arrival at SFO (unless you have gone through US customs clearance at participating airports in Canada and the Caribbean), 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). This takes about 35-45 mins. 2. To connect from the International Terminal to the domestic terminal 1, you can take the AirTrain's red line at either station A or G below the Main Hall.

    I need to travel from Delta terminal at Lax to Southwest airlines at lax

     

    You arrive at LAX at Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 1. Exit Terminal 5 and board the blue-marked LAX bus route A on lower arrivals level island,, under sign "LAX Shuttle Airline Connection", which runs every 12-15 mins. Your next stops will be T6, T7, T8 and over to T1 - 4 stops or 10 mins. You need to go through security check again at T1.

    I'm flying into Chicago (12 : 55 pm) from India and catching a connecting flight on to LA The whole trip was booked as one ticket, all on one airline (British Airways /Though the operating airline for heathrow-ord-lax is American Airlines). As I hear I will need to land in Chicago through passport control, collect my checked bag and go through customs, wait in line, re-check my bag, wait in line and then go through security And switch terminals in between . I have 1 hours 25 minutes departure-departure between my flights at O Hare . Is the time enough . If i miss my connection will AA/BA book me on the next flight . Should i book disability assistance will that be of any help to make it on time

     

    1. Arriving at the International Terminal 5 at ORD, and after you have re-checked in your bags and gone through customs clearance (the process takes 35-45 mins) - you need to proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System and take the ATS train to your connecting Terminal 3, which runs every few mins. Terminal 3 has Concourses G, H, K & L with corresponding gates (i.e., E15). The ticket & ORD's overhead screens will tell you which gate you need. While 85 mins would be sufficient, you may still want to opt for disability assistance.

     

  • JFK Connect Terminal 3 to 1

    How much time does it take to connect b/w Terminal 3 to 1 (Delta to Alitalia) leaving from BOS (international flight)? Also, do we have to pass through security again since international flight?

     

    After arrival at Terminal 3 of JFK, take the free Airtrain, located outside of domestic arrivals, arriving at Terminal 1 at the arrivals level, outside, center. Signs will guide you to it. The Airtrain runs on average every 8 mins.; you most likely have to go through security check again at T3 (not customs clearance procedure - that's happening on your way back to USA).

     

  • Connecting from Canada to international

    We're considering flying from Edmonton on an Alaska Airlines flight that arrives at 6:18pm and connecting to a Delta flight that leaves at 7:20pm. I've seen that international flights arrive and depart from the south satellite--is that also true of the Alaska flights arriving from Canada? If so, it seems we wouldn't leave the south satellite. Is that true? Thanks!

     

    1. Make sure you use Edmonton's U.S. Customs Clearance, saving you time at SEA. At SEA, Alaska uses Concourses C & D and the North Terminal, while Delta uses the South Terminal. Look at your Ticket to see which gate you depart from at Edmonton (C, D or S gates?) Connections between them are complicated - I suggest you open www.ifly.com/sea & and choose 'Terminal Map' from Quick Links to the left. Below the terminal map you find the various modes of transfer options. Your time is very tight!

    How lomg does it take to go from an AA flight coming into Intl. to get to AA domestic flights terminal, and do you have to go thru inspection again?

     

    1. You arrive at Terminal E and depart from Terminal B. 2. On arrival at Terminal E you need to go through passport control, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and re-check in your bags (their tags need all 3 Airport codes)- count on 35-45 mins. 3. After completing international arrivals procedures, take either (a) the shuttle bus Route 11 to your connecting terminal; or (b) walk by proceeding to TC, Level 2, then use walkway to TB, takes 7-10 mins. NOTE: on arrival at BOS, check overhead screens for your departing flight and gate number.

    My sister and I are both arriving into Terminal B (2 different airlines/ 10 minutes apart). Is there a good meeting spot for us to set up prior?

     

    Meet her in the Arrivals area at or near the information desk.

    None - you have to go outside, and then back thru security!

  • Alaska/Horizon to UA question
    Apr 21, 2012

    I am coming into LAX from STS on Alaska/Horizon prop plane so they will hand me my checked bag (no need to go to baggage claim, I believe), Term #6. I have plenty of time to catch my UA to CUN via IAH also Term #6. So I gather I am self-contained within #6 but do I go upstairs to UA departures to re-check my bag and then do I go through TSA again? I have 1.5 hours between flights.

     

    At LAX you need to re-check-in your bag and go through TSA check again.

    60 minutes waiting for security on Apr 19, 2012--missed flight. All flights are reserved, so how do you not know expected volume???

     

    In the future, open www.ifly.com, enter your aiport, then click on "AIRPORT STATUS" in the top row, which has "Airport Delays" and "Security Wait Times".
