    Need to book flights into and out of Logan on Southwest to connect with already booked Icelandair flights. How much time should we allow in between connections? May check a bag on outgoing icelandair flight, but don't have to. Thank you!


    I would try to allow at least 3 hours.


  • Connection Time Question
    Jan 6, 2016
    1) Do I have enough time between flights? I am a U.S. passport holder who will have 1 checked bag for both flights and the 2 flight tickets were purchased separately. I will be arriving from a domestic flight at 4:05 pm Sunday, 3/6, and trying to make it onto an international flight leaving at 5:55 pm. 2) Do I have enough time? I am a U.S. passport holder who will have 1 checked bag for both flights and the 2 flight tickets were purchased separately. I will be arriving from an international flight at 5:30 pm on Monday, 3/14, and trying to make it onto a domestic flight leaving at 7:19 pm.


    I think it will be very difficult to make your connection returning to the US on-time.


  • Boston to Dublin connection
    Jan 6, 2016
    I'm planning a flight into Boston arriving at 4:45PM on American Airlines with a connecting flight to Dublin on Aer Lingus at 6:00PM. is an hour and 15 minutes enough time between flights?


    Purchased on one reservation or two separate ones? With two separate reservations you would only be able to make it without checked bags. On the same reservation that would be enough time.


    OK, thanks!


  • Connection time of 50 min
    Jan 5, 2016
    There is a 50 min layover for my connecting flight from BOS. It's a domestic travel. Is it a sufficient time ?


    Where are you flying from and to? What airlines are you flying?


    I am flying from Dallas (DFW) to Syracuse (SYR) by American Airlines


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as the first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Boston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and American doesn't operate from that many gates in Boston.


    I just checked, the 1st flight lands at terminal B and next flight will take off from terminal B


    Yes, all American gates are in B.


    So it will be sufficient time to catch the connecting flight right?


    Yes, it should be


  • Will I have enough time
    Dec 30, 2015
    Hello! We will be arriving from Iceland at 5:30 pm on 5/2 and would like to catch a jetblue fly at leaving at 8:10pm.. Will this give us enough time to clear customs/immigrations to catch our 8:10pm connects with jet blue? All tickets were booked separately . Thanks


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Connecting Flight to Ireland
    Dec 27, 2015
    I am flying in from Toronto arriving at terminal B at 6:15 PM and flying out to Ireland at 9:00 PM Terminal E. Do we have to transfer our own luggage and do we need to pass through customs again


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Were your tickets purchased on one reservation or separate ones?


    We are booked under one ticket


    Then all you have to do is go from Terminal B to Terminal E and through security. You don't have to do anything with your baggage or go through immigration or customs. You will show your passport to the Aer Lingus agent when boarding your flight to Dublin. You have plenty of time.


  • security
    Dec 26, 2015
    if arriving at terminal C do you need to go through security again to fly out of Terminal E


    Yes, you do.


    thank you! I think that JetBlue will have checked our bags through to Ireland, via Aer Lingus, so we should have enough time.


  • Connecting in BOS on way to Montreal
    Dec 18, 2015
    I am flying into Boston on Alaska Airlines to catch a flight to Montreal. I have separate tickets and a carry-on bag. Is 60 minutes enough time to make this connection, presuming the flight into Boston arrives on time?


    I wouldn't try it if the flights are in different terminals. What airline are you flying to Montreal? if you are able to check in online it's possible but is still pretty risky.


  • Will I make my domestic connection from an international flight?
    Dec 17, 2015
    Hello. I am flying into Boston from London on a Tuesday morning in December, due to arrive at 12:24HRS (international arrivals) my connecting domestic flight to Raleigh (same airline group - Virgin/Delta) is due to depart at 14:10HRS (2:10 pm). This gives me 1 hour and 46 minutes layover. Do I actually have a chance of making this connection? Is the immigration/customs/baggage check/recheck/inter-terminal sprint doable at that time of day on a weekday by a reasonably able person? Thanks for your help, I am rather worried that I am not going to manage this one. I have to check a bag (Christmas presents). Thanks again.


    Yes, it is possible as long as your virgin flight is on-time. Terminal E where you arrive and Terminal A where you depart are not too far from each other.


  • AC/LH connection
    Dec 16, 2015
    I am arriving on the AC flight from YUL at 7.04pm and connecting on to the LH flight to MUC departing at 8.20pm. Will I need to recheck my bags? Do I need to go through security again?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you won't have to do anything with your bags as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. However, you will have to go through security again in Terminal E before your Lufthansa flight.


    But is that enough time? I will have to exit Terminal B, take the bus to Terminal E, go through security and then go to the gate in less than an hour.


    You have a little over an hour. It should be enough time if your flight from Montreal is on-time.


  • Connecting C to E
    Dec 14, 2015
    Hi, I have been booked on a CapeAir flight from Albany, arriving into Boston at 3:25PM. I am also booked on the Lufthansa flight to FRA, leaving at 6:15. Is there any security to pass again while switching terminals? Any passport control? I don't have any checked bags. How punctual is CapeAir on average? Thanks alot


    OK, so you have more time now? Yes, you will have to get your Lufthansa boarding pass and go through security in Terminal E. There is no US Customs or passport control when leaving the US. You will show your passport to the gate agent when you board the flight. Cape Air is fairly reliable.


  • Connecting Time
    Dec 14, 2015
    I am arriving in BOS on EK on 15 Jan at 7:55 am and I have a connecting flight to SJU on Jet Blue at 9:46 am on the same date. Will it be enough time for me to catch the Jet Blue flight? And will I need to go through immigration, plus collect my luggage and check in again my luggage for the Jet Blue flight??


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then transfer to Terminal C go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.


    Thank for your reply


  • International Connection

    I will be arriving on Emirates ETA is 2 PM (Term E) on Wednesday Jan 13 and have a connection on a completely different reservation on Southwest, scheduled for 4:40 PM. Will that 2hr and 40 minutes be enough for immigration, customs, baggage re-check and get thru security and reach the gate for the connection?


    It's probably just about enough time if your Emirates flight is on-time. Note that you'll have to take your bags with you to Terminal A to re-check them with Southwest. You can't use the re-check desk in Terminal E.


    Thank you! I also have Global Entry and TSA-Precheck, so I hope that would cut down on time in lines.


  • Intl to Domestic Connection Time
    Nov 25, 2015
    I will be arriving on Emirates ETA is 2 PM (Term E) on a Tuesday and have a connection on a completely different reservation on American, scheduled for 3:50 PM (Term B). Will that 1hr and 50 minutes be enough for immigration, customs, transfer to AA's terminal B, baggage re-check and get thru security and reach the gate for the connection?


    It will be very difficult unless your Emirates flight arrives early because you will have to transfer your bags yourself to American and get to their check-in counter before the bag check cutoff.


  • 1:30 between flights
    Nov 25, 2015
    my international flight is planned to arrive at 5:30am to terminal E. my connection to SFO is jetblue at terminal C at 07:00 am is this possible with checked buggage ? (reservation is together)


    That should be just enough time assuming your first flight is on-time.
