Hi,

Will one person able to manage with two child's to to claim baggage and re-check. Is any help available if required at airport. Appreciated your response
If your bags are tagged through to your final destination, you can re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after customs, then just walk next door to Terminal C and go through security. It's not too far that you have to carry all your bags.
