  • 1hr 14 min connection
    May 2, 2015
    Hi - Before I book this flight I wanted to ask if I will have enough time to connect. Flight is from Fort Myers to LGA via Delta, the next flight is 1 hr 14 min also Delta but operated by WestJet. I am not sure if we will have to go to a different terminal? No checked bagged only carry on. Thanks


    You will arrive in Terminal C or D and depart from Terminal D. C and D are connected by a walkway inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

  • 55 minute connection
    Apr 5, 2015
    Hi - trying to evaluate whether 55 minutes is enough time for this connection before I book it online. Flying from Miami at 5:05pm (American Airlines 1053) to LAGUARDIA ... connecting with American Airlines 3696 ... 55 minutes later. Not sure what terminals. Is this realistic ... how about with checked luggage or just carry on.


    Flight from Miami is on May 7 (a thursday).


    Oh ... and it is 3 of us, each with a single ticket showing the connected flights. Holding Canadian passports wondering if we'd have to go through security


    That should be enough time. You may have to go through security if you arrive at a different concourse of Terminal B than you will depart from. However, security lines in Terminal B at LaGuardia are generally pretty short. You should have enough time if your flight from Miami is on-time.


  • Terminal C to B
    Apr 14, 2015
    I just flew into Terminal C on US Airways on 3/30 and needed to connect for American at Terminal B. There IS a shuttle within the secured area that transfers all American and US Airways passengers. I find it extremely odd that this is quite unknown, and even American agents don't know when you call them.




    How did you locate/find this shuttle? Flying in tomorrow and need to go from Terminal B to C in 55 minutes. Any advice would be much appreciated.


    They should have someone meeting you right after you get off the plane. If not, make sure you ask someone before you leave the secure area.


  • Need info on terminals
    Mar 29, 2015
    This is my first time flying with a toddler and I need all the info I can get! We are arriving in terminal b with a connecting flight in terminal c with a 1.5 hr layover. If I ask for assistance could someone help us to the next terminal? Would we have to wait for our checked bags or are they transferred for us? If I have a stroller is it easier to walk between terminals or should we take the shuttle? Any tips? I have severe anxiety so I am looking for any info that could make this flight less stressful!


    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together and what airline or airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without this info. There is no way to walk between Terminals B and C.


    I bought them together. I bought them on us airways website. I'm flying into lga on American airlines and flying out on us airways.


    Your baggage will be transferred for you. American also now operates a shuttle bus inside the secure area between the American gates in Terminal B and the US Airways in Terminal C. Unfortunately they have decided not to tell either of their websites about it but it exists. If you can't find it, you can take the Route B bus outside security, but you will have to go through security again in Terminal C. You have plenty of time.


  • Terminal C to B

    I have a 54 minute layover on 3/30, and I have to go from Terminal C to Terminal B (US Airways or American). I am on the TSA Approved list meaning I can go through the shorter line. What are your thoughts on making this connection?


    That should be barely possible. There is word that American is running a shuttle bus on the secure side of the airport, so that would mean that you may not have to go through security.


  • Terminal Connection between C and D
    Mar 26, 2015
    How long will it take to get from Terminal C to Terminal D?


    They are connected inside security by a walkway, so very little time at all. 5 minutes tops.


  • Air port connections

    Can you tell me how to get from terminal D to terminal B T La Guardia airport


    The Route A and Route B bus on the lower level. If you are booked on two separate tickets. Leave at least 1 hour for your transit.

    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.

    So do you go through a main entrance or directly to your terminal?


    what airport and airline are you talking about?


    LGA and terminal B


    Terminal B has a number of doors corresponding to each airline. Each concourse of Terminal B has its own security checkpoint.


    Alright so I go directly to terminal B then through to my airline? Or directly to my airline? Thanks


    You go to Terminal B and walk through the door with your airline's name above it. It'll be fairly obvious when you get there.


    I'm connecting in Laguardia tomorrow morning. I land there at 7:25 am in terminal D and I have to get to my flight in terminal c which leaves at 8:05 am. Will I have enough time to get there and not miss my flight. I'm very nervous


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. There is a walkway connecting D and C Inside security.


  • Flying into wrong terminal
    Apr 8, 2015
    I am flying into terminal B today, however, my car is parked at terminal D. How can I get to where my car is located?


    What airport are you talking about?


    I have same question into LGa


    The Route B bus connects the terminals frequently and without having to go all the way out to Terminal A (only the less frequent Route A bus goes to Terminal A).

    Is spirit always located in terminal B?


    Yes, they are.

    Hi! So I'm just confused I've never flown out of LGA before. Where is the entrance or do you go directly to a terminal? Is there security in each terminal or do you go through a security point then to your terminal? Is this airport really large? Where would a taxi drop someone off?


    There is security in each terminal and in fact there is three different security checkpoints for the three separate terminal concourses of Terminal B. When you take a taxi to LGA you can tell your driver your airline or the Terminal letter.


  • Can you walk from Terminal C to D
    Mar 7, 2015
    I have never flown into LGA so I'm kind of clueless about the layout. I will be arriving in terminal D but departing from terminal C. Can you walk to these terminals or will I need to catch a tram or something?


    There is a walkway between C and D inside security.


  • Terminal C to B?
    Mar 6, 2015
    I will be arriving in C and need to get to B. I understand I will need to go through security at B, but will my bags go through without me having to pick them up at baggage claim? I am arriving from inside the US but will be connecting here to get to my destination in Canada.


    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? What airlines are you flying?


    I purchased them together and separate airlines. My connector is a United flight.


    All United flights are in Terminal B. What airline are you flying from Canada?


    Sorry, I'm not clear. United doesn't fly from LaGuardia to Canada and doesn't operate from Terminal C. What airlines are you flying on each segment? Where exactly are you flying from and to?


    US Air to LGA then from lga using united operated by Air canada


    OK, so if you purchased your tickets together and are checking a bag your bags should be transferred automatically. You just need to exit Terminal C and take the Route A or Route B bus to Terminal B and go through security.
