  • What will happen during our transfer of planes/layover?
    Feb 20, 2017
    We are US citizens flying from Toronto on Air Canada to Dublin on Aer Lingus with a 1.30 hrs Layover in Boston. We are purchasing tickets as one reservation with these 2 flights and one stop. Will we have enough time to transfer? It will be terminal B and C, but not sure if we have any customs or other things to do.


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Boston is walk to Terminal B and go through security. Note that Air Canada uses a different security checkpoint from the rest of Terminal B.


    Not sure if you were clear on my info. I am concerned about our trip to Dublin from Toronto. taking Air Canada from Toronto to Boston changing planes in Boston to Aer Lingus on our way to Dublin. You mentioned preclearing immigration that would be on our way back. Also you mention security for Air Canada, why would we need to go through security if we are leaving Air Canada and going to Aer LIngus? We will be going from Terminal B to Terminal C. Please clarify.


    Actually the procedure will be the same on your way to Dublin. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto and then in Boston just walk to Terminal C and go through security.

    I'm coming into Boston at 1510 on a direct flight (with either Condor or Thomas Cook) from Manchester (England). I want to catch a connecting flight to Augusta Maine at 1740, giving me 2.5 hours to do everything, clear visa immigration and collect and re-check baggage. Is this enough time? Thanks


    That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • Connections - Portugal flight , conection to delta flight to orlando
    Feb 15, 2017
    Hello, I need your help: I'm going from lisbon to bonston on a SATA flight and then I have to catch a Delta flight to Orlando. Do I have to go to customs and then chek in for Delta? Or is there an "internal corridor" for people in transit? Anyone know if Delta gates are close to SATA gates? Thank you


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then go all the way across the airport to Terminal A, re-check your bags with Delta, go through security and to your departure gate. You need at least 3 hours.


    Thank you, lets hope the flight dosenĀ“t be late, i have only 3 hours...

    I would like to know how long does it take to go from the Boston airport to south station Boston in order to take a bus ? I arrive at 11:40 AM and the bus is at 14:00 PM Thanks


    With silver line about 30 minutes. But on the safe side 45 minutes


  • Inside Security Between E and C
    Feb 12, 2017
    I'm planning on arriving from LAX on JetBlue in terminal C and then depart on Azores Air in terminal E with a 2-hr layover. There will be no checked luggage. Is it possible to walk between terminals C to E without having to go through security again?


    Yes, that is possible, however, you may not be able to get your Azores Airlines boarding pass except by exiting security.


  • 1h 30m transit
    Feb 7, 2017
    Hello, ill be departing from halifax (canada) to boston and then to dublin, with a 1h 30m transit in boston. I am also required to change terminals from B to C once i arrive in boston. Do i have enough time? And do i need to go through security and check in again at terminal C? Thank you.


    You will clear US customs in Halifax, saving you a bundle of time. But unless your airline in Halifax can issue you a boarding pass for the flight out of Logan( i.e. They are commercially connected with the airline flying out of Logan, then you will have to check in at terminal C and get a boarding pass. In either case you will have to go thru security at Terminal C at Logan as far as I know Plus...unless your airline out of Halifax can transfer your baggage to the flight departing from Logan , you will have to go to baggage claim, get your bags, and check them in again at Terminal C when you get your boarding pass. I think in such a case it will be tight and depend on how many others need to do the same thing at the same time Sometimes TSA is good about having a hurry up line for people in a time crunch or sometimes if you go to a checkpoint other than the one nearest the ticket counter, you can get thru much faster Hope this helps Good luck


  • CLT-BOS-HKG 1hr 30minutes connection

    Hi, I have a flight from Charlotte to Bos in 12:13am. Is there enough time for the connection for the flight to Hong kong in 1:45a.m?


  • Boston layover
    Feb 5, 2017
    I have a 1h15min layover in between my flights from Halifax NS to Atlanta. I pre-clear US customs in Halifax - is this enough time to make my connecting flight to Atlanta?


  • Terminal C to E
    Feb 3, 2017
    I arrive in terminal C on Virgin at 6pm and have a flight on Icelandair at 8:45pm in terminal E. they are separate reservation so I would need to find my luggage and re-check in with Iceland air. Would I have enough time?


  • Arrival on TAP, connection to AC; 1 hour
    Jan 31, 2017
    My flight from Lisbon is scheduled to arrive on Mar 2nd at 5:55 PM (business class), I have a connecting flight at 6:55 PM on Air Canada (to Montreal). Will I have enough time to make my connecting flight? (assuming I need to clear customs at Logan. Btw I have a global entry)


    Even with Global Entry I think an hour is pretty tough, especially considering your arrival and departure terminals are pretty far away from each other.


  • 1 hour and 35 minutes enough time to clear customs?
    Jan 28, 2017
    I am looking at an itinerary that has a return flight from Mumbai to Cleveland via Dubai and Boston. The time between the anticipated landing at Boston from Dubai and departure from Boston to Cleveland is just an hour and thirty five minutes. Will this be enough? Only under the best case scenario? Even under the worst case scenario?


    It's enough time under a "normal" scenario. It would be difficult if the flight from Dubai is delayed.


    Thanks Zap! I kind of guessed as much and opted for a later departure from Boston (6:30 layover ... argh).


  • 1hr 55min Stopover
    Jan 27, 2017
    Hi There, I am travelling from Toronto to Boston with Air Canada - Layover for 1hr55- checked in 1 bag- will this bad be transferred to my connecting flight with Aerlingus to Dublin? Do I have enough time to get from one to the other? Will there be immigration etc. to go through?


    you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Are both of your flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


  • From Dubai to Boston with Emirates and connecting to Raleigh Jetblue
    Jan 25, 2017
    Hello, My parents are flying into Boston from Dubai with Emirates. They have a connecting Jetblue to Raleigh. After customs and rechecking bags ,do they have to go through security screening in Boston ?


    Yes, they do.


  • quick layover
    Jan 23, 2017
    Howdy! Flying from DUB -> BOS -> SEA, connecting from Air Lingus to Jet Blue all in Terminal C. I have only a 1:05 layover in BOS, and I understand I can pre-clear US customs in DUB. I'm thinking the 1:05 is enough time to make the transfer (barring any unforeseen delays). Any thoughts or experiences that could be shared are greatly appreciated!


    Yes, that is enough time as long as the flight from Dublin is on-time.


    Thanks, ZAP!


  • From Atlanta to Rome through BOS with Delta
    Jan 20, 2017
    Hello, I will travel with Delta from Guatemala to Atlanta and then to Boston with flight DL2100. In Boston I have the Delta connection to Rome after 1h 5 m. Is it enough time? Do I have to check in again my luggage? Thank you


    You won't have to do anything with your bags in Boston, but as the flight to Rome will be operated by Alitalia, you have to go from Terminal A to Terminal E and through security. That's a difficult connection but not impossible.
