  • Short connection JFK
    Apr 12, 2015
    1
    Hi, we are flying Delta from Italy to San Juan (Puerto Rico) with a short connection on JFK. The first plane should arrive at 01:45 PM (Terminal 4). The second fight is scheduled at 02:59 PM (Terminal 4). That makes 1h14min connection time. We are no US citizens and we have a little child. Is it enough time between flights ? Thanks in advance.

     

    No! that is insufficient time. the minimum time for that connection is 90 minutes, and I would prefer to have closer to two hours.

     

  • Short Layover Before A Connection

    We only have a short 90 minute layover before catching a connection and I'm worried about the timing. Our flight (US Airways): Cancun-PHL: Arrive at 4:23 Departure PHL at 5:55- Halifax NS Canada Do I have to clear customs in Philadelphia or is my luggage just transferred to my next flight and I clear in Halifax? Thanks!

     

    Yes, in Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then go through security and to your departure gate. You will barely have enough time. You will go through Canadian immigration when you get to Halifax.

    I arrive at IAD at 4:30 PM on a United Airlines flight (coming from Indianapolis). I depart IAD for London 2 hours later at 6:30 PM on a British Airways flight. I am a U.S. Citizen and booked both of these legs separately. 1.) Is 2 hours enough time to layover? 2.) When I leave Indianapolis I technically do not need to present my passport as my final destination is technically domestic, IAD. However once I arrive a IAD will I have to go through security again this time showing my passport as I will now be traveling internationally (to London)? 3.) As for checked bags- I am not planning on checking bags in Indianapolis.

     

    Someone from British Airways will have to see your passport for you to check in for your flight to London. You may be able to get your boarding pass inside security from the British Airways gate. They will also check your passport when you board your flight to London.

     

  • Frankfurt Connections

    I am flying AC from Toronto to Budapest with a 1hr 5min connection in Frankfurt. Is this enough time

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. As you will not be entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control.

     

    I am flying from NICE to bombay with 1 hour 10 minutes in frankfurt for my connection .Is it enough?

    I am somewhat new to international travel. I have a rather simple question (but not for me!) I have a departing flight on eva airlines from taipei (TPE) to tokyo (NRT). I then connect from tokyo (NRT) to Los Angeles (LAX) on singapore airlines. I am checking one baggage as well. After my first flight, do I have to pick up my baggage , exit, security, and customs, and re checkin? Or is there a partition at NRT that I can pick up my baggage, and funneled into to checkin without going through customs/security again? And how long does it usually take (more than two hours?)

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? If together your bags will be automatically transferred to LAX and you will not have to claim them in Tokyo. You will also not have to go through customs.

     

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I purchased them separately (one is actually a rewards redemption). Any help is welcome!

    I fly in from JAC to DFW with a 90 min layover before going to PHL. I have to change airlines (from American to US airways), will this be enough time to change airlines?

     

    And, will my checked luggage get transferred between airlines?

     

    Yes, your bags will be transferred and yes, that should be plenty of time. All gates at DFW are connected inside security by the Skylink train.

     

  • T4 to T5 in 2:35

    I arrive at 11:10 on Sunday AM to T4 than need to go via T5 at 14:45. Will 2:35 do the job? Iam coming from Europe and will need go through custom as well. Do I need to carry my checked in luggage to T5 myself or is there a way to re-check it right at T4? Singapore air said they tag the luggage all the way down. I change to JetBlue

     

    CORRECTION: 13:45 PM so 2:35 in between

     

    You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, but can then re-check it at the transfer desk if it is tagged through to your final destination. You will then take the AIrTrain from T4 to T5, get your JetBlue boarding pass if you don't already have it, then go through security.

     

  • JFK Layover

    Flying from Madrid to LAX, with a layover at JFK. Arriving and departing Terminal 4 with Delta. 1) Will we need to claim bags, clear customs, and re-check-in while at JFK? Current layover time is 1hr45min. 2) Wondering if this is enough layover time if we need to clear customs/get bags/check-in?

     

    Yes, in JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then go through security and to your departure gate which will also be in T4. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Is there enough time to got thru customs and make last leg of flight if Rome-JFK arrives at 3:35 and flight to Seattle leaves at 6:05?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. Both flights will be in Terminal 4.

     

    Thanks so much!

     

  • Arrive Delta Terminal 5 depart International 1 Sydney

    I arrive at 8:40 pm from PDX and depart to Sydney at 10:10 pm .is that enough time to go from terminal 5 to International 1

     

    There is no "International 1" It is the International Terminal or TBIT. If your tickets were purchased together that should be enough time. if you purchased two separate tickets you will have to transfer your baggage yourself and will have to hurry to the International Terminal to get there before the checked baggage cutoff.

     

  • Is 90 minutes enough for customs+connection?
    Apr 11, 2015

    Hi there, I will be flying home from MUC (Munich), and connecting in IHA on Monday, June 15, 2015, at 2:00:00 pm. The flight home to YEG (Edmonton) leaves at 3:31:00 pm. Is this enough time (91 minutes) if I have a checked bag? Will I need to go through customs coming from Munich, Germany to Edmonton, Canada? Thank you sooo much!

     

    I should mention that both flights are through the same airline, and that I've booked it all via a round trip. So if I miss my connection, I will be able to stay in IHA and wait for the next available flight, right?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through US Immigration and Customs but should not have to claim your bag as you are on an international to international connection, however, confirm that with agents in Munich and Houston. And yes, if you miss your connection you will be booked on the next available flight to Edmonton, possibly connecting in Denver to get there.

    Anyone used the new APC Booths to bypass Immigration queues

     

    They don't technically "bypass queues" there is still a line to access the machines, although it is shorter, and you still have to see an immigration agent, except it is a much briefer encounter as he doesn't have to enter any information as you already entered it on the APC.

    Hello Flying from Vancouver Canada to Venice Italy with 1 hour and 30 minute connection in Frankfurt. Is this enough time and do we have to go through security and customs in Frankfurt? Flights arrive and depart in terminal 1.

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Schengen passport control and security in Frankfurt.
