  • my mistake..need to get from F to B
    Feb 17, 2013
    Hi, Please disregard previous post. My flight arrives at F, but then I need to connect to the next flight at B. I would imagine I take the shuttle from F-14 to C-16. My bigger concern is will I need to go through security again at B? I know that with the construction going on around F recently you get routed out of the air side of the terminal when going to or from F. Thanks!


    Forgot to also add....is the hour layover still enough time to make the connection?


    On arrival at PHL, at Terminal F, take the US Airways shuttle bus at gate F14, taking you to Terminals B/C, gate C16, where you can then walk over at post-security to your connecting B gate. Count on at least 30 mins. bus transfer time. You have enough time.


  • Terminal F
    Feb 26, 2013
    I will arrive in Term F and have to shuttle to Terminal A. I have been told that US Airways supplies a bus shuttle. Will I have to go through TSA at Terminal A if I take the US Airways Shuttle. I have only 45 minutes.


    At PHL, US Airways shuttle takes you at gate F14 to gate A1. Your gate is in Concourse A-East (Gates A1-A13). No TSA needed.


    Is 45 minutes enough time to get from terminal F28 to A20?


  • Changing Terminal
    Feb 16, 2013
    We are flying from Toronto at the end of March and will have to change terminals from C to D and have an hour between flights. Will that be enough time or will it be rushed? We will only have to take our carry ons and will be cleared through customs in Toronto.


    At Toronto you will go through US customs clearance, saving time at LaGuardia. While Terminals are presently not connected, you will need to exit TC and walk to the adjacent TD; since there is presently construction activity for the new connector to TC & TD, follow signs. Alternatively you can take the free Route A shuttle bus running every 10-15 mins. At TD (gates D1-D11) you need to go through security check before getting to your connecting gate. NOTE: Terminal B has also a Concourse D (for American Airlines, gates D2-D10). Make sure you got the right terminal!

    My brother is mentally challenged is there any help at the airport to get him from Terminal A to Terminal B, he only has 45 minutes.


    While Terminals A & B are close together, and the above-ground TerminaLink train starts its round at TA inside of security (next stop TB), you should contact his airline ahead of departure. Also, you may want to contact IAH Airport's Administrative Office at 281-230-3100.


  • US Customs Clearance
    Feb 16, 2013
    I am flying from Grand Cayman to IAD and clear customs at IAD. I have a 1hr37min layover. Will I have enough time to clear customs and catch my next flight?


    On arrival at IAD you wille transported to the Iternational Arrivals Bldg. at west end of Main Terminal for TSA clearance (Passport control, bag pickup, customs clearance, & bag recheck-in). Thereafter you need to take the shuttle bus to D gates or the or the AeroTrain to theA, B & C gates. Your transfer time could be tight, depending on waiting lines and incoming flight delay. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad,then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Do I need to re-check thru security?
    Feb 16, 2013
    Moving between Gates C and D is there security to pass through when getting a connecting flight? Thanks


    Keep in mind that C gates are part of Terminal 1; however, they are long and use the C gate tram (arriving at Baggage claim level; right adjacent to your arriving C gate tram is the D gate tram to the more distant Satellite D (where it will arrive close gates D50-59, and gates D32-D43; on opposite sides are gates D16-D26 & D1-D14. No security check needed.


  • Can I make it
    Feb 16, 2013
    I arrive at 10:57 on Great Lakes Air and need to connect to SW flight at 12. Can I make it?


    Denver airport is really easy to navigate - lots of moving sidewalks and a train between each concourse. You'll arrive at the end of B and need to get to the center to take the train to C. Probably won't take you longer than 20 minutes tops to get to your next gate.


    Make sure to check in online and print your boarding pass for your Southwest flight before you leave! Also, don't plan on checking a bag with that transfer time as Great Lakes won't transfer to Southwest so you'd have to claim and then recheck, which I don't think you will have time to do.


    Thanks for your input


    Thanks. I can make it without luggage. Just what I needed to know


  • SW flight connect
    Feb 15, 2013
    I arrive on SW flight 1069 at 8:25 pm and need to connect to SW flight 159 at 9:05 pm. Will I have enough time?


    If arriving & departing on domestic flights at DEN, your transfer time is sufficient. Southwest uses Concourse C (gates C29-39 & C40-49) for domestic flights.

    Our son is arriving on Alaska 92 and connecting to Horizon 2045. What are the gates for these two flights?


    He arrives at Concourse C, Gate C-2C & departs from gate C15 (Horizon merged into Alaska, & gates are listed under Alaska). (Concourse C has gates C-2A through C-2M and als gated C3 to C 20.


  • ATL Connection Question
    Feb 15, 2013
    I arrive at A27 and Board at D8. How long will it take to walk or should I get a tram? I have 1 hour between flights. Thanks


    At ATL, on arrival at Concourse A, you need to take the escalator/ elevator down to the Plane Train; At Concourse D you need to take the escalator/ elevator up to your gate - head for gates C16-D1. You have enough time.

    How do I get to Estrella Rojo bus in terminal 1 in Mexico City


  • Layover time
    Feb 13, 2013
    I have a one hour layover and will go from Terminal 1 to INternational Terminal 5. Is one hour enough time?


    It might be possible, are your flights on one ticket? The connection takes about half an hour and you have to go through security again in T5. I would try to have more time. It's definitely not enough time if you'll have to check in again with your international carrier in T5.


  • transfers internation to domestic
    Feb 13, 2013
    I have two questions. I arrive CDG from Canada and have a transfer to 2F to MRS . Do I have to claim my luggage. Both flights are AF. On return I have a 5 hour connex. I am meeting a friend at CDG Where would be the best place as I assume I have to go past security.


    At CDG, Air France mainly uses Terminal 2, which consists of 7 terminals and satellites. On arrival you need to go through non-Schengen passport check. Best place to meet would be in front of the information counter on the arrivals level. For details, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/cdg then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • connection to cozemul
    Feb 12, 2013
    arriving from omaha nebraska connecting to cozemul with only about 30 minutes, how far and how much time will it take?


    forgot to say it is on united airlines expressjet


    I'm assuming your connection is in Houston (IAH). That's a very tight connection but doable. Your flight from Omaha will probably arrive in B-north and the Cozumel flight will probably leave from Terminal E. Take the TerminaLink train. Hopefully your flight from Omaha is on time.


  • Custom time entering DFW from Belize
    Feb 12, 2013
    We have a two hour layover between entering FWD from Belize and making our connection flight. Is that enough time to get through customs? We are not checking any luggage.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time, especially if your onward flight is also on American.
