  • time for customs and transfor
    Mar 18, 2015

    I'm planning to fly from Mexico City and connecting to a flight to Boston, both on United, with only 1 hour and 13 minutes. Will this work to clear customs and transfer?

     

    That is 17 minutes below the minimum international to domestic connection time. I would look for a longer connection.

    Flight lands in AMS from Cardiff and we have 55mins stopover to get to the gate for the flight to Tel Aviv - Is this enough?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Since you will not be entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control, just security at your departure gate.

    HI Arriving on AA (AA111) from Europe. Landing at 15:10 and catching connecting flight to Phoenix on AA 640 at 17:00. With just under 2 hours of transit time will I have enough time to clear customs and make my way from terminal 5 to terminal 3 ? Thank you for your help.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I will arrive at terminal A from Miami, if I go up to the Airtran from Terminal A to Terminal C, how long the entire ride takes between the 2 terminals?

     

    It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes.

     

  • Connecting Flight from Japan Airlines to American Airlines

    Hi! I am flying into LAX via Japan Airlines with a connecting flight on American Airlines to Las Vegas. My layover is 1 hour 35 minutes. I do have one checked luggage. I know I have to go through immigration, customs and rechecked bag. Can you give me best advice to make this process as fast as possible? Also any info on terminals that I need to know would be greatly appreciated! And is it a bad idea to re check bag at connection counter? Or should I bring it to American Airline agent? I think that will take more time right? Thank you!

     

    Actually a change this post I will be flying in via American Airlines to LA from Tokyo...not Japan Airlines. Will it then not be in Tom Bradley .. that way making it easier to get to recheck in bag and get to gate after immigration and customs? Thx!

     

    Correct, an American Airlines flight will arrive in Terminal 4. You can re-check your bag at the connection counter if it is tagged through to LAS. You should have enough time.

     

    Good to know! Quick clarification..is immigration & customs right in Terminal 4 as well? Do i go through immigration, get my bags, go through customs, rechecked it at connection counter in that order? Thanks for your help!

     

    Yes, the AA flight from Tokyo arrives in Terminal 4. Yes, you have the order correct.

    Time and process to connect from delta terminal C to air canada in central terminal B

     

    Exit terminal C on the lower level, take the Route A or Route B bus to Terminal B, walk to the Air Canada sign, get your Air Canada boarding pass if you don't already have it, go through security. You will need at least 75 minutes for this transfer.

     

  • Spirit airlines layover

    Flying in on Friday march 20th via spirit for a layover. Arriving via spirit at 7:37 pm and departing on spirit at 8:17 pm. Is this enough time? I believe so since it's the same carrier, though I have never had a layover before

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. All Spirit flights at ORD use just a handful of gates in the L concourse.

     

  • 1.25 connecting time

    I'm a non US citizen, and I have 1.25 connecting time from an international flight to a domestic flight, in the EM terminal. Do you believe it is enough ? Thanks in advance for your reply. Rgs

     

    That is 5 minutes below the recommended time but you should be OK if your first flight is on-time.

    My flights were changed and now my layover time is less then I expected. Is there enough time to get from those two terminals in an hour and do I have to go through security again. Please advise ASAP

     

    If both flights are domestic and you don't have any checked bags and you check in online, it's possible. You can actually now walk from T7 to T4 inside security by following signs to T6, then walking down T6 and taking a tunnel to T5 then T4.

     

  • From LHR to LAX to FAI

    Arriving on May 8 at LAX (515pm) from LHR, then have a flight from LAX to FAI on Alaska Airlines, departing at 735pm. Is this enough time to get through customs and to terminal? Tickets bought separately, possibly checked one checked bag

     

    That should barely be enough time. Since you are buying separate tickets you will have to bring your bag yourself to Terminal 6 to Re-check your bag.

     

    Thank you for the quick response! Would it be better to get a later flight or do you think it is actually possible to make this one? the later flight involves an extra plane and a 4 hour layover in ANC so i'd like to avoid that if possible.

     

    Yes, it's possible, but there's obviously some risk involved.

     

  • International-Domestic Connection Time

    I am arriving at JFK on an international flight to terminal 4 at 9:05 PM. I have to make it to an 11 PM domestic flight out of terminal 5. Is 2 hours enough time to go through customs, collect baggage, and make it to the flight?

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? What airline are you flying into Terminal 4? If you purchased tickets together you should be OK. If separately it might be hard for you to get to T5 in time to check your bag, so you might want to consider just bringing a carry-on if that's possible. Then you can just check-in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving on your first flight.

    Yes, you will go through schengen passport control in Rome. You should have enough time.

    How much time do I need in Newark ? Or, can part of the Customs/Immigration be done in Montreal prior.

     

    Montreal has US Immigration and Customs preclearance. An hour is enough time in Newark.

     

    If that is the case in Montreal, how much time will I need there ???

     

    60-90 minutes

    arriving in chicago at 9:50 and departureon a flight to China at 10:40 on same airline UA. WILL i HAVE ENOUGH TIME.? iS THERE ANY ESCORT TO TRANSPORT ME TO NEXT GATE AND TROUGHT SECURITYO THE NEXT FLIGHT?

     

    You do not have to go through security. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All United gates are connected inside security. You do not need an escort.

     

  • Layover in Rome enough time?

    Hi, We have a flight from LAX to FCO that gets there at 1:10 and a connecting flight to Madrid that leaves at 2:20. These are both on Alitalia. It looks like the first flight arrives in Terminal 3 and the connecting one leaves from Terminal 1.

     

    That should barely be enough time. Follow the signs to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen passport control on your route.
