    I have a flight from Vienna to Chicago through LHR. Arriving at terminal 3, departing from T5. What do i have to do to get on the right flight? do i have to go through security or UK immigration, or claim and re-check my baggage?


    DId you buy your tickets separately or together? What airlines are you flying?


  • Connection time?
    Dec 15, 2014
    I arrive London Heathrow from Madrid at 0950 (dont know which terminal) and leave terminal 5 at 1120 for Chicago. Is there time time for this connection (ie 1hr 30 ) and do i have to go thro security again.


    This question can't be answered unless we know what airlines you are flying


    Hi Zap sorry about that - Flt American 8816 operated by Iberia from Madrid to LHR dep 0820 arr 0950 and then Flt American 6195 operated by BA dep LHR 1120 arr O'Hare 1345.


    Both flights will be in Terminal 5. Yes you will have to go through security but you will not have to go through UK Immigration.


    Once many thanks for your excellent input - just one thing more will we have enough time for the connection at Heathrow ?

    I have a flight with UA, from LRH to MCO and it stops of IDA. The stop over time is 1hour 14minutes. Will this be enough time? What do i have to do to get on the right flight?


    1 hr 14 mins is not sufficient for an International -> Domestic transfer at IAD. It's possible, but it's below the minimum connection time. You arrive in the C/D concourse at IAD, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with United, then go through security and back to your departure gate which will also be on C/D. You should contact whoever you booked this ticket from, notify them that it is an improperly short connection, and ask to be rebooked on a later flight to MCO or an earlier flight to IAD.

    Flight from Chicago arrives at LHR at 7:50, departs for St Petersburg, Russia, at 9:20. Is it enough time to make connection?


    What airlines are you flying?


    British airways both flights


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will not have to go through UK Immigration for your transfer. http://www.heathrowairport.com/heathrow-airport-guide/flight-connections/terminal-5-international-connecting-to-terminal-5-international
