  • 1 hour connection time
    Oct 20, 2013

    Hello. I am in the process of booking a flight with connections in ORD. First trip is all United from Calgary (YYC) to Manchester (MHT) with 1hr1min connection in ORD. Return is US Airways from Philadelphia connecting with Westjet to Calgary (1hr 8 min). Is this doable? My other option is to spend 3+ hrs in ORD on the return and just 56 minutes connecting in Philly (both US Airways flights). I am travelling out on Oct 17 and returning on the 20th. Thanks in advance.

     

    A 1 hour connection on United is doable in ORD. You will preclear US immigration in Calgary.

    I am arriving in PHX on SWA and transferring to a US Airways flight. No checked bags. Do I have to go through a security checkpoint to change airlines?

     

    Both airlines serveTerminal 4 - no need for security check. A moving walkway connects all gates areas A through D on three sides of the food court

    How can I get from Terminal C to Terminal B?

     

    Take the Airtrain - follow signs - At TB you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • LHR - SEA - LAS....Enough time

    IIm booked onto a delta flight arriving into Seattle from LHR at 2:25pm for a connecting skywest flight at 4:00pm. I know this isnt a great deal of time. Just trying to get an heads up which terminal/bag drop off/ quickest route for my connecting flight

     

    You should have enough time for your transfer. While you will arrive at Satellite S via Delta & go through the customs process, you need to find out if SkyWest will fly on behalf of Delta Connection /Delta Airlines or on behalf of United, or US Airways. If with Delta, your bags will automatically be transferred; otherwise you will need to re-check-in your bag with either United or US Airways. For international Arrivals procedures and transfer options, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/sea, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    My skywest flight is on behalf of delta. So my bags will automatically transferred? I always thought upon arriving into the US you had to pick your bags up regardless?

     

  • Naples to Frankfurt to Toronto

    Hi, I am flying from Naples to Toronto (with a layover in Frankfurt). I am flying Lufthansa from Naples to Frankfurt and Air Canada from Frankfurt to Toronto. Although it looks like they are both in terminal 1, the layover time is only 45 minutes. Is that enough time? Do I have to go through customs/pick up my bag? Thanks in advance!

     

    Lufthansa will arrive at T1, Concourse B, while Air Canada is departing at Concourse Z (for all U.S. departures). All you need to do is I transfer between B gates (T1B) and satellite T1A (A gates downstairs, Z gates upstairs. You can use the transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. An escalator from lower level A gates connects to upper level Z gates.

     

    Thanks! That's helpful.

     

  • Arriving in Terminal B; Departing in Terminal A

    We are flying US Airways RDU to PHL and then British Air PHL to LHR. US Airways will not do an interline transfer of luggage - hence, we must pick up our luggage in Terminal B and go to Terminal A to re-check it. How do we do this?

     

    Concourses B & A are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways. Both are right next to each others.

  • First ever connecting flight in USA

    Flying on the 25th of October to Las Vegas from Glasgow but have a connection at newark. I have read so many different things. Do I need to go through security collect my bags and drop them off at terminal c where I will be catching my flight to vegas?

     

    All international flights at EWR arrive at Terminal B, except United flights arriving at Terminal C. Yes you need to pick up bags, go through customs and re-check-in your bags. Some of United's and all other domestic flights depart from Terminal A. After customs clearance and re-check of bags, board the Airtrain to Terminal A, go through security check and on to your connecting gate.

     

  • Connection time domestic arrival to international departure

    Hi. I have 71 minutes between United 505 from Tampa (arriving 21:09) and BA 292 to London Heathrow (departing 22:20). United said they will tag my bags through to London. Please can you tell me if I have enough connection time and if I have to go through security or passport control again. Many thanks for any help.

     

    Your transfer time will suffice (only international arrivals need to go through passport control; your bags will be automatically transferred. However, as United uses Concourses A, B, C & D with corresponding gates, look on arrival at overhead screens for your departing flight & gate number. For transfer options I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    Make sure to check-in for your British Airways flight on-line before you leave Tampa.

    Hi,I am fying from Albany NY to London and found great flights but very tight 56 minute connection time. Namely alb-iad UA flt3899 arrive IAD 9:04pm connect to UA924 departing IAD at 10pm. Is this enough time for me to get to gates in time for boarding and for my luggage to get transferred- or should I take the connecting flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover?

     

    Yes you have enough time at 56 mins. However, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    How to get from terminal C to B

     

    While Terminals B & C are close to each other - you can also take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security.

  • which terminal I should check in

    I will take UA1178 to SanFrancisco and then take connective flight UA889 to Beijing. I want to know which terminal I should check in, terminal C or E. I was informed the depart gate for UA1178 is E20.

     

    On arrival at IAH, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from A to D). At the D/E station follow sign to Concourse E, gate E20.

     

    You can check-in in either Terminal, but since the departure is from E, I would check-in in E.

    What is the fastest way to get from Terminal A .Arrival from Charleston, Sc to Terminal C-Departure to Portland, ME? I have 45 Minutes! Thank you!!!

     

    At EWR, a shuttle bus outside runs between TA & TC - at TA (near gate A28), at TC (near gate C71) - no security check needed.

     

  • From Terminal 8 to Terminal 4 - How long will it take us with luggage?

    We will be arriving from Canada at 1145h terminal 8. Our flight to Grenada departs at 1355h terminal 4. The tickets will be purchased separately. Is this ( 2hrs 10 mins ) enough time?

     

    1. If your Canadian airport does not have U.S. Customs clearance, you will need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and then take your bags to your connecting Terminal 4 (as you have separate tickets) - JFK has Terminals 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8 - connected by the Airline Terminals train running counter-clockwise every few minutes in the unsecured areas of the terminal; where you will need to go check in your bag at your connecting airline counter, through through security check and on to your gate.
