  • Is 1hr50 enough time??
    Oct 24, 2016
    Our flight (BA213) arrives at Boston at 13:30 - Terminal E and our next flight (BA7741) leaves at 15:20 - Terminal B. Do we need to go through customs and collect our bags in Boston or will we do that when we arrive at our destination - Miami? Is 1 hour 50 enough time to get through customers and over to the next terminal? Is you have a connecting flight do they give you priority getting off? Really need some pointers! Thanks.


    Yes, in Boston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, walk or take the shuttle to Terminal B, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time. You do not get any priority by having a connection. Note that your flight to Miami will be operated by American Airlines.


  • What do I need to know about connecting flights
    Oct 18, 2016
    We are flying from Ottawa (AirCanada) to Boston Logan Terminal B to connect with an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin Ireland at Terminal C. Do we need to pick up our checked bags and re check them in the departing terminal? Is there a trick to get from B to C? Thanks


    Are your flights on one reservation or two separate reservations? B and C are not connected to each other.


    Our Flight is on the same reservation made through Aer Lingus. Although they gave us two booking numbers one with air Canada in case we wanted to prebook our seats, and one with Aer Lingus.They reflect each other.. This is new to us as we normally fly with the same carrier direct from Canada. Thanks for the quick response.


    OK, then all you have to do is walk to Terminal C and go through security. You won't have to do anything with your checked bags in Boston.


    Thank you ZAP for your expert response. This will certainly be a comfort to my travelling party. I will assume that our 3 hour layover will give us plenty of time for our connection.


    I am doing a similar trip. Toronto to Dublin through Boston both legs on Aer Lingus with 1H35MIN connection. I have Global Entry and TSA pre check. In your opinion, is this enough time to transfer? Unsure of the terminals but I would assume it would be similar to the above scenario.


    Your first flight will not be operated by Aer Lingus. They don't fly from Toronto to Boston. Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto.


  • Portugal to BOS to MSP
    Oct 14, 2016
    I am arriving at BOS Terminal E from Portugal at 4:55pm (SATA Azores Air). Potential connecting flight out is 6:20pm also Terminal E (Delta). Is this enough time to clear customs and make second flight? Not having to go to a different terminal should help right? I would book a later flight but there isn't one right now. Would have to stay another night and fly out in the morning...


    Sorry, forgot to mention we will have 1-2 checked bags.


    No, that's not enough time. No Delta flights depart from Terminal E. They all depart from Terminal A. Where are you trying to fly out of Boston to?


    You are right, i was misreading the flight information. We are heading to Minneapolis (MSP). It looks like we probably have to stay the night and fly out the next day...


  • Question re time needed between flights
    Oct 14, 2016
    I'm arriving from Paris on a Sunday at 6:15 pm terminal E. Departure is at 7:55 pm from terminal A. Both flights are Delta. Is there enough time for Immigration, bag claim, customs, etc to reach the departure gate on time??


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    I will have Global Entry and TSA Precheck may help too.Thanks!


    Yes, that will help.


  • Arriving in Terminal C (Aerlingus) & Departing Term C to SEA (Jetblue)
    Oct 12, 2016
    Hi i am new to the worderful world of connections. I am travelling with Aerlingus from SNN arriving in Terminal C and connecting in Terminal C to Seattle with Jetblue with a 4h layover. I will have pre-cleared US Customs and Immigration in Shannon. My question is will I have to go through US immigration and through security again prior to my connecting flight to Seattle Tacoma? Or will I be able to remain in the terminal in the departure area? (Im guessing that I will arrive in like a domestic flight in departures given im precleared).


    If both tickets are on the same reservation and your bags are checked through to Seattle, all you have to do in Boston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, like a domestic flight.


  • Flying Jet Blue from NYC to ATL w/ Layover in BOS
    Oct 11, 2016
    Flying from NYC to ATL with layover in Boston, arriving at Terminal C and Departing at Terminal C. Once after I arrive in Boston, will I have to go thru security again. Layover is 45 minutes


    No, you will not have to go through security again. You have enough time if your flight from New York is on-time.


  • Emirates to Jetblue on a separate ticket
    Oct 10, 2016
    DBX/BOS: What's the procedure for clearing immigration & customs, then continuing on a separate ticket for a domestic JetBlue flight? How much time needed? 2h35m enough? Don't want to be rushed & nervous.


    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, walk to Terminal C, re-check your bags with JetBlue and go through security. You have just enough time if the Emirates flight is on-time.


  • arriving in terminal E(emirates) &departing thro terminal A(southwest)
    Oct 5, 2016
    My wife and 2 yr old are arriving on a sunday 7:40 am on terminal E(emirates) and i'm planning to book their ticket thro southwest (terminal A) departing at 11:00. will it work? or it will take more time for customs and all? and can we get some help moving the luggage from Terminal E to A.


    That should be enough time. You will have to take your bags yourself between terminals. There is a shuttle bus.


    Thanks! wont there be any paid services to help?


    No, there are no such services.


  • ATL-BOS-CPH, terminal terminal A->E
    Sep 30, 2016
    Hi I am flying in to Logan with Delta (DL1206) on Wed, arriving to terminal A at 3.24 and I will have to catch a flight to Copenhagen 2 hours later from terminal E. I have no checked baggage and I am quick on the feet (plus is a SAS Diamond card holder). I have 2 hours to catch the connection. Sounds like it should be possible, do you agree? Thanks in advance


    It's possible if the first flight is on-time. You'll have to run to Terminal E.

  • Terminal B to Terminal E
    Sep 26, 2016
    I will be flying in on United arriving at 7:33 pm in Terminal B. On a separate reservation I will be flying on Sata leaving at 10:15pm out of Terminal E. Will I have enough time to collect my bag and recheck in for the next flight?

  • changing planes
    Sep 25, 2016
    I am flying to Dublin ,Ireland on Dec 19th. I used Travelocity and they have me coming into Boston on American Airlines in terminal B and leaving 1hour and 4 minutes later on Aer Lingus from terminal C. Is this reasonable? I questioned them and they said it was fine.


    You will have to walk to Terminal C and go through Security. It's doable but doesn't leave much time to spare.


  • Terminal A to Terminal E
    Sep 22, 2016
    We are arriving SW Terminal A. How do we get to Terminal E Hainan Airlines?


    You can either take a shuttle bus or it's a long walk.


    Sep 13, 2016
    I will be flying from Lisbon to Orlando with a layover in Boston on January 2nd. Will a 2h Layover be enough to get through customs? Im flying on a J visa


    What airlines are you flying? Are your flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
