    I arrive at 1140 on Air Canada from YVR. I want to buy a ticket on BA to Prague that leaves at 1325, is that enough time without a through ticket? Do I go through customs?


    On two separate tickets, yes, you would have to go through US Passport control and customs, and no, that wouldn't be enough time for such a transfer.

    Hi there, I'm looking at a flight that arrives from Toronto through Air Canada at 06:30 and then a connecting flight at 08:10, both in Terminal 2. Is that enough time?? The connecting flight is AC as well, so I'm hoping we won't need to collect our bags and go through customs...?


    Your second flight won't be operated by Air Canada, but if everything was purchased on the same reservation, then you won't have to collect your bags.

    Hi there. My BA flight is arriving at 4.55am at LHR Terminal 5 (BA16), and I have another BA flight leaving at 7am at LHR Terminal 3 (BA500). These 2 tickets were purchased separately. Will there be sufficient time? Thanks!


    That should be enough time.


    Thank you :)


  • Terminal 3 to terminal 5

    BA flight from Rome arrives to Terminal 3 at 2:55pm, my connecting flight to Los Angeles departs from terminal 5 at 4:10 pm. Is 1h15 min enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Rome is on-time. Also, I believe both flights will be in Terminal 5. A "terminal 3" you see on your itinerary is probably referring to in Rome.


    thanks so much

  • Do I go through customs and get my bags
    Jan 22, 2016
    I booked a flight for my husband and I from Paris to Rome on British Airways. The flight goes from Paris (CDG), connects in London (LHR), and then arrives Rome (FCO). Our connection time at LHR is 2 hours. I'm getting nervous because someone said that even though we were staying on a BA flight the whole time, when we get to LHR we have to go through customs and collect our checked bags and then go back through. Is this true? If so, I don't think we'll make it to our connecting flight. Does anyone have any information on this?


    That person is wrong. All you have to do in London is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Oh thank you ZAP! I feel so much better hearing that. The panic feeling has gone away now. Thank you so much for your answer!!!!!

    I am coming in on Emirates from Dubai on 18.40 hrs at terminal 3 and connecting onto an Icelandair flight at 21.15 hrs at terminal 2. I have a Schengen visa. Will I need to go through immigration and will there be enough time to connect onto ongoing flight.


  • 1 hour enough between flights within T2?
    Dec 31, 2015
    I'm wondering if it's worth the risk of the short connection time but great itinerary for me: Arrive UA931 at 7:55 and leave on Swiss Air LX353 at 8:55--all within T2. Both flights are on through United. Thanks in advance for any advice.


    That should be enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.

    I fly in to terminal 2 from Bangkok flight Thai 916 arriving on 5/2/16 at 19.35pm. I was hoping to catch a connecting flight BA 1478 to Glasgow departing at 21.00pm on the same day. I will have hold baggage. Will this be possible or am I best to book a hotel and get a flight the next day Thanks


    No, that wouldn't be possible. Get a hotel.


  • Transit Visa
    Dec 16, 2015
    I hold an Indian Passport and a valid U.S. Green Card. I am looking at BA flight from a US airport (to be determined) to Frankfurt, Germany transiting through LHR..The transit time is ~ 2-5 hrs. Also will have a confirmed ticket both ways. Question is: Do I need a transit visa for transiting at LHR airport? I looked at the website but it is not very clear. Any definitive response and or recent experiences please..


    Both the fact that you have a US Green Card and that you will presumably have a Schengen visitor visa (to enter Germany) exempt you from needing a UK Transit Visa.

    arrive by British Airways flight at 9:05am in Terminal 5 and then catch 11:05AM British Airways flight from Terminal 5 at 11:05AM.Whether 2 hours is enough to catch 11:05AM onward flight and is there a security check again done. Can I walk to catch flight from the same terminal or there is a train to be taken Thanks in advance


    You should be able to walk to your departure gate.

  • Flight Connections Between AA Miami and BA Nairobi
    Dec 3, 2015
    I will be flying into Heathrow on AA from Miami and connecting to BA to Nairobi with a one hour layover. Is this enough time to get to my connecting flight?


    It's possible. There's a shuttle inside the sterile area between T3 where you arrive and T5 where you depart.


    Thanks for the quick reply. Am I going to have to go through security, immigration or customs?


    Since you're not entering the UK and are coming from the US, no, you shouldn't have to.
