I'm flying into BOS on Southwest, arriving Terminal A at 11:25am. How much time do I need to allow to get to Terminal B for Air Canada flight to Montreal? Is 1 hour enough? Coming back, I know I'll need longer for customs. How long should I allow for transferring in reverse (Terminal B with Air Canada to Terminal A for Southwest)?
There is no US customs when leaving the US. However, you will need to claim your bags, transfer them to Air canada and re-check them, then go through security. I recommend at least 2 hours if you have checked bags and 90 minutes without.
Clarification: 1) I will not have checked bags, only carry-ons 2) How much time from Terminal A to Terminal B (leaving US) BOS to YUL? 3) How much time from Terminal B to Termina A (returning to US) YUL to BOS?
90 minutes both ways is possible, but 2 hours is preferable. As I said, the time is the same both ways as you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal when returning to the US and there is no US Customs when leaving the US (you go through Canadian immigration and customs in Montreal).
We will arrive terminal C with JetBlue from Charlotte and catch Icelandair flight to Iceland in terminal E. We have only 1.5 hours layover time and I am worried we won't have time to catch the Icelandair flight. Do we have to pass security check again from terminal C to terminal E or we can simply run to terminal E to catch the flight? Thank you.
There is a walkway inside security from C to E if your bags are checked through to Iceland.
Leaving Reykjavik (KEF) on Icelandair to arrive in Boston. Have a 3 hour 50 minute layover before flying to Pittsburgh (PIT) on Icelandair/Jet Blue. Does one need to claim luggage for customs when arriving in Boston and then check them in again at the next terminal for domestic flight to PIT?
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 to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate.
My sister is flying into Detroit tomorrow from Manchester with a connecting flight via Boston to Detroit by Thomas cook. She has a five hour lay over at Boston. She only has her boarding pass for Manchester to Boston as it tells her to check in again at airport transfer desk. What does this mean exactly ?
There will be no transfer desk that can give her her Detroit boarding pass. She has to go to the JetBlue or Delta check-in desk (whichever airline she is flying). She has enough time.
If we arrive BOS at 6:45 p.m. via JetBlue, scheduled layover is 1 hour 50 minutes before leaving for KEF Iceland at 8:35 p.m. Both tickets will be booked and scheduled through Icelandair. 1) Is layover enough time? 2) Is luggage checked through or does it have to be claimed at BOS arrival terminal and taken to Icelandair terminal?
Yes, that is enough time. If the first flight is domestic then your bags will be automatically transferred.
Thank you, but a bit confused as you advised someone else on a domestic flight to Boston that they would have to claim luggage and walk to next terminal before international flight. Also, I assume each terminal has its own TSA gate? Is this correct?
