Hi. I am for the first time needing to change concourses in MIA. Can I walk form concourse D to Concourse J inside security or are there any other ways to get between the two concourses without leaving security zone? Thanks!!
No, there's no way to get from D to J inside security.
Is there an "usual" gate number for the arrival of flight AA160 DFW to MIA arrival 4:13 PM and the connecting flight AA959 MIA to PTY departure 5:55 PM. The locations and distance for the connecting flight. Need to determine how hard is it to make the connecting flight.
There are no "usual" gate numbers. You should have plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.
My question is I have about 1 hour time to change flights from Miami airport to Santiago Dominican Republic will that work?
If your first flight is domestic and both flights are on American that is enough time.
I am flying on American Airlines on British passport from LGA, NY to Aruba via Miami (one ticket). Flight due to land in MIA at 16.43 and flight to Aruba departs at 17.30 (only 47 mins connection time). Is this enough time to catch the flight? Will I need to collect and re-check my baggage or will it go straight through to Aruba? Will I need to clear immigration/customs etc?

TIA


You have enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.
Hi there, I'm flying from Orlando international to Miami arriving at 12.34, I then have a flight at 13.35 from Miami to JFK where I have a connection flight to Edinburgh. All flights are with American airline. Will I have enough time in Miami to catch my flight to JFK as it's only an hour layover. Will I need to collect luggage and put it onto next flight. Thanks
Yes, that's enough time. All you have to do in Miami is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello, we are European citizin and flying from Havana(Cuba)arriving Miami International at 10.05 to connect to a flight to San Juan(Puerto Rico) at 12:10 (layover: 2 hour 05 minutes) Shall we go through customes in MIA? Will our luggage be going directly to San Juan from Havana? Both are AA flights in the same e-ticket . Thank you very much for your help!
Yes, in Miami you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. Your flight from Miami to San Juan is considered a domestic flight.
We have a connection with 2 hours is that enough time to clear customs and make our flight to Atl very worried last flight of the day
Yes, that should be just enough time if the flight from Colombia is on-time.
I will be flying from Toronto to Miami arriving at 9:19AM connecting for a flight to San Juan Perto Rico departing at 10:26AM. I will have 1 checked bag. Both flights are with American Airlines. Will I need to go through security or get my checked bag in Miami? Is the 1 hour 7 minute layover sufficient time to catch my connecting flight? Thank you.
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. You have enough time.
I am flying from Panama to London transiting Miami. Panama to Miami is AA and Miami to LDN is British airways. I am guessing I still have to clear US immigration but do I have to collect my baggage. Also if I have a visa waiver can I use a kiosk
You shouldn't have to re-check your baggage. You can use the kiosk if you have entered the US on ESTA before.
We are flying from Dallas to Miami and then Miami to Barbados all in American Airlines. We have about an hour and 15 minutes layover to leave for Barbados. Do we need to take a shuttle to the next terminal and go through customs ?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Miami on your way to Barbados is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
