    Im arriving on Southwest concourse B and departing on American Concourse D. How do I get there and do I need to go through security again?

     

    I'm pretty sure you can walk between concourse B and the Main Terminal to D automated Tram beyond security. If you can't, you'll need to exit security in the main terminal, go to the departures level, go through security and then follow the signs to concourse D tram.

  • SW but w/bag recheck & security rescreen
    Apr 9, 2013

    Due to quirky Southwest pricing, I can save about 1/3 the airfare separately booking FLL-LAS then LAS-BUR (as opposed to their FLL-BUR (despite SW using the very same flights). But doing it separately means I will have to leave the secured area, retrieve my bags, recheck them, then go back through security. Arriving 18-Oct-13 at 4:40pm, departing 7:10pm. I'm thinking there's enough time to safely do this - agree/disagree?

     

    That will definitely be enough time - also, you can see if they will check the bags through for you. The computers that Southwest currently uses gives them a lot of lee-way with checking bags.

     

  • Transfer Hawaiian to SWA- no checked bag

    Monday 6/17-Arrive on HAW at LAS 7:20am- depart SWA at 9:00am- no checked bags- 4 people- is this enough time to make the connection? Please advise shortest route. Thanks

     

    That should be enough time. There's a shuttle that runs on the curbside from T3 to T1. That would probably be the shortest route. It might be possible to take the D-satellite train from T3-E to the D-satellite, then the train from the D-satellite to T1 too, but that would be a pretty non-standard route and I'm not sure it's possible. Check in for your Southwest flight before you leave Hawaii.

     

    At LAS, currently Hawaiian uses the Satellite Concourse with gates D1-59, which is located south, between Terminals 1 & 3, and served by the D tram & C tram, arriving there one level below the gates (in the center - take escalator down). Southwest is presently in Concourse C (gates C1-25) of Terminal 1. Without baggage transfer you should be able to make it easily in that time.

     

    Monday morning is a very busy time to to leave SWA, can be a very long security line. Can be very long waits but as long as all goes smooth and with no bags to transfer you should just make it. And yes you must get a shuttle from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 and then get to the C gates, which can be got to by going to level 1 of terminal 1 just go straight towards the Starbucks on level 1 then head around it out the doors right behind it and cross the drop off street and when you enter the other building turn left and head up the escalators and you are there.

     

  • FROM D GATES TO A GATES

    Can this be be done inside security? i want to check in through D because it's the only Concourse with TSA pre-check. I went through D last week to check out the Centurion Lounge and didn't have time to fully investgate after getting off the D train back to Term --the guard said this isn't possible but I know I have seen a sign that says "To D gates" after entering security through A.

     

    At LAS if you arrive at the Satellite Concourse of Terminal 1 and need to get to Terminal 1's Concourse A - take the D gate tram to the C gates of the main terminal 1, where the esplanade connects all gates, including A gates.

     

    The A, B and C gates are connected and can be passed with out leaving security. D and E gates are in the same security area. There is no free way to pass from A,B and C to D, and E unless a security officer will bypass you over its a locked area. I was told that if I had no pass for the the other area I wanted into, that I would have to leave and go through security for the other gate area. Some may get passed over but there is no way to do it unless someone opens the locked security door for you. So no guaranties that you can get from one area to the other without going through another security point.

     

  • LAS - Going from Terminal 1 to Terminal

    Connecting from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 Mar 24, 2013 1 0 I plan to arrive Terminal 1 with United Airlines at 22.29 and would like to connect to an Air Canada flight in Terminal 3 at 23.30, giving me only 1 hour. Since I've never been to LAS airport, i'm concerned about finding the shuttle and getting there on time.

     

    You shouldn't have to take a shuttle. There is a tram that runs from concourse D where your United flight will arrive to Terminal 3 where your Air Canada flight will depart.

     

    One hour connection time at LAS, between T1 & T3, is very tight: A shuttle bus with the McCarran logo runs about every 12-15 minutes between both terminals; the bus stops at T1 on level 0: from baggage claim, take elevator /escalator down one level and exit terminal, then take the crosswalk towards the covered parking garage, where the bus stops; at T3, it stops on level 0 in the center of the curb. However, at T3 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate (T3 has gates E1-15).

     

    sumar's information is incorrect - you will not have to take a shuttle bus or go through security again. Just take the train from the D-gates to Terminal 3 (E gates)

    I plan to arrive Terminal 1 with United Airlines at 22.29 and would like to connect to an Air Canada flight in Terminal 3 at 23.30, giving me only 1 hour. What happens if the UA flight is delayed?

     

    I can't seem to figure out what airport you will be making this connection at? Where is it? Also, if you miss your connection you will be re-booked. It depends on the cause of the delay whether you will get a free hotel or not. Also, since you're getting in so late it might not be worth it to get a hotel anyway.

     

  • Going from C to D gates and back again

    Flying out of LAS via SWA (probably a C gate) but want to utilize the new Centurion Lounge which is in the D concourse. Is it possible to go through security at the C gates, transfer to D gate and go back again without going back through security?

     

    Would love to know the answer! Planning to do the same on Friday.

    Moving between Gates C and D is there security to pass through when getting a connecting flight? Thanks

     

    Keep in mind that C gates are part of Terminal 1; however, they are long and use the C gate tram (arriving at Baggage claim level; right adjacent to your arriving C gate tram is the D gate tram to the more distant Satellite D (where it will arrive close gates D50-59, and gates D32-D43; on opposite sides are gates D16-D26 & D1-D14. No security check needed.

    How do I get from Concourse B to Concourse D. Is there a shuttle, rail, etc.?

     

    You arrive at the McCarran Terminal 1, Concourse B, then take the Tram located on level 2, Esplanade, to the D gates. Signs will guide you.

    Is there a place in T1 to meet a passenger for coffee who has a 1 1/2 hr connection?

     

    At LAS, it is best to meet your party in the Arrivals Hall, near the information counter, then proceed to the Lobby which has plenty of food & drink options.

    I'll be arriving at terminal 3 and departing at terminal 1. Will I have to go through security again? Thanks!

     

    At LAS, a shuttle bus with the McCarran logo runs about every 12-15 minutes between both terminals; the bus stops at T1 on level 0: from baggage claim, take elevator /escalator down one level and exit terminal, then take the crosswalk towards the covered parking garage, where the bus stops; at T3, it stops on level 0 in the center of the curb.

    what level is information counter on for arriving passengers, and are flights from Canada considered international?

     

    1. LAS has two passenger terminals (T1 & T3), both of which have the baggage claim area and information counter on level 0. 2. Certain airports in Canada have US customs clearance - passengers arriving from those airports are considered domestic arrivals. 3. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/las - then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    one arriving Air Canada and one on West Jet

     

    Both Airlines seem to be in the same new Terminal 3, Best place to meet is near the information counter or at domestic baggage carousels 1-10 and international carousels 11-16.

    Enjoying terminal 3 with WestJet. Downside is you are never near the rental car bus. Other than that you can beat the terminal.
