I am landing in Vegas via Spirit Airlines with a separate ticket connecting flight with Allegiant. I will have 1 carry on bag with me and will have a paperless boarding pass. Do I need to recheck my bag at the Allegiant ticket counter? When is the latest that I can do this? Shuttle buses available? Which terminal to which terminal? Thank you in advance.
To be more specific, I am flying Spirit to LAS arriving at 7:38AM and will have a separate ticket connecting flight flying Allegiant to Hawaii at 9:00AM. I will have paperless boarding pass and 1 carry on. Do I need to go back to the Allegiant counter to check in my carry on and check in at the counter? Will I have enough time? Shuttle buses? Terminal information?
Both Spirit and Allegiant use Terminal 1. You just have to claim your bags from Spirit and re-check them with Allegiant then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving on Southwest Airlines at terminal 1 and have a connecting flight on Alaska airlines terminal 3. Do I have to get my baggage at terminal 1 and then go to terminal 3 and re check in and go thru security again?
Yes, you have to do all that. There is a shuttle bus between Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 outside security. Southwest does not transfer bags to any other airlines.
The last time we changed planes in LAS with the same airline, we had to walk what seemed to be a mile to get to our new gate. Are there trams available for this? We could not find any in our rush to make our connections. I'll be flying on Southwest this time.
There are no trams within terminals, so for all connections on Southwest, you have to walk.
Hi there, 2 family members are travelling on Delta and another on Virgin. Can we check-in at T1 for Delta eg check bags then travel over to T3 for the others to check in and clear customs all together. Then take the tram over to D gates?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You should be allowed through security in T3 with a Delta boarding pass since you can access the D gates from T3, but there's no guarantee.
I am arriving on Hawaiian Airlines at the D gates and have a flight out on Southwest at the C gates 2 hours later. I am not checking bags and I have TSA precheck. Does the tram go from D to C gates? If not, can I get a taxi to go from D to C gates?
Yes, you can take the tram to "terminal 1" and then follow signs to the C gates rather than baggage claim. Even if you accidentally leave security, with Pre-Check you should be OK if you have to go back through in T1.
Hello, I would like to know about Terminal connections about this flight. I'll be in LAS airport at 4:40pm from South Korea by Korea airline(Terminal 3 I guess) and I made reservation at 6:55pm LAS to SLC by Delta separately today. I checked the map of the LAS airport and it seems like I need to go D gate. How can I get there? and do you think I need to get through customs and security check twice? I mean I need to check-in one more time? If so, do you think where i need to go?
That will be very difficult as you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take a shuttle bus to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Delta, go through security and take a train to the D gates.
Thank you for your response! I won't bring any luggages except my carry-on bag. Even though do you think it will be difficult to do that? Also, time is not enough?
Hi, We are landing at 2.20pm in Terminal 3 with United and flying out of Terminal 1 with American at 4.30pm. We will need to collect luggage, get across the airport terminals and check in 1 hour before our flight. Is 1hr10 mins enough time to get off the plane, collect and be at the front of a check in desk in a different terminal? Thank you in advance.
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. If you can somehow do this trip without checked bags it would make things much easier as then you could just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the D gates.
