  • is 2 h 20 min enough to check at first port and connect to other fligh
    Nov 30, 2016
    I will be arriving to MIA from Lima, Peru via LATAM on January 11, 2017 at 2:30PM, my connecting flight is to ORD via AA at 4:50 PM. Will it be enough time to do all checking considering that I hold a non-immigrant visa, and will have checked luggage? Thanks


    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.


  • Miami to aruba
    Nov 30, 2016
    Tomas we fly AA from Cancun via Miami to Aruba. Done ned to pic up bags in Miami or can i check in My bag the whole way and go straight to My Aruba flight in Miami.


    Since you are on an International to International connection through Miami all on American, you do not have to claim your bags in Miami. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.

    I will leave with TAP at 3.30pm and flying with different airlines but checkin already done at 5pm with Interjet to Cancun. Do I have enough time?


    Realistically no, that isn't enough time, especially if you have checked bags. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security in Miami.


  • 43 minute layover
    Nov 28, 2016
    My family & I will be arriving at MIA from St Thomas USVI at 8:35 pm & then scheduled to depart for Minneapolis at 9:18 pm, allowing only a 43 minute layover. Both flights are American Airlines - Is this even feasible?


    Yes, that is possible. Flights from USVI are considered domestic so all you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal D.


    Thank you for your prompt response, ZAP.! You've been a big help as we've never traveled thru this airport before.


  • Connecting G11 to D60
    Nov 28, 2016
    Hi Need help need to connect gate G11 to D60 and have 45 min between flight whats the best way to connect


    That's not enough time. You'll have to exit security and go back through to get from G to D.


    I made it in 20 min , had a bad queue at security gate 3 in terminal d so I skipped and went to security 2 and just took 2 min

    Im flying in from MCO with 45 min connecting time to an international flight. I'm carrying Carey on only. Connecting flight is with same airline. I land gate D45 and connecting flight is d53...is 45 mins enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. It shouldn't take 5 minutes to get between your gates in Miami.


  • Flying from TO 1h 19mins connection
    Nov 27, 2016
    Hi, I will be flying from Toronto to Miami and then connect from Miami to Caracas. I have 1h 19minutes to catch that connection, is it enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Miami on your way to Caracas is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • SAN->MIA->CUN,Mexico, 1hr24min layover enough?
    Nov 27, 2016
    Both flights with AA, arriving MIA 5:37am,12/19, depart @7:01am, is it enough time for layover? Do I need to reclaim and check in the baggages?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • Transit from Heathrow to Miami to San Diego
    Nov 14, 2016
    Hi, Flight from London Heathrow arrives into Miami at 1740, with onward flight to San Diego leaving at 1959. Both flights operated by American and i have no checked luggage. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • LHR-MIA-SCL, with connection time 1:20
    Nov 14, 2016
    All flight with AA in 1 PNR. Itinerary changed by AA and I will arrived at Miami from London at 18:45, and flight to Santiago is 20:04. AA customer service confirmed it is feasible, while I am a bit worried. May I have your opinion here? Do I need to clear the custom? and re-check baggage? (I have valid US visa and Chile visa). Thank you!


    You don't have to claim and re-check your bags since it's international to International on AA, but you do have to go through US Immigration, customs, and Security. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Connecting flight to Dominican Republic
    Nov 14, 2016
    Hi! Me and my family are travelling to Dominican Republic from London via Miami. With American Airlines (arriving to North Terminal). Our layover time is just 2:15h - I am first time travelling through US - please advise what to expect - do I need to go through the US customs, then reclaim my baggage, then re-check in again and go through the customs again? From MIA to Dominican I have the same American Airlines. Thanks!


    You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security but won't have to claim and re-check your bags. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Oh good. Thanks so much ZAP!


  • Connection times
    Nov 8, 2016

    That's barely enough time if everything is on the same reservation and goes smoothly.


  • Think I picked the wrong flight :(
    Nov 8, 2016
    Hi! Me and my family are traveling to curaƧao. Our flight is set to land in Miami at 605p and our other flight home is set to depart from Miami to Nashville at 724. Is that enough time to go through customs? Or should I try to change my times?


    This is your flight from Curacao->Miami->Nashville? no, that's not enough time. You need a bare minimum of 90 minutes, with 2 hours recommended to go through US Immigration and Customs and then connect to a domestic flight in Miami.


    Thank you so much! I changed our flight now we have over three hours to make our connecting flight home.


  • Travel between J and H pre-flight departure
    Nov 5, 2016
    My wife and I will be travelling MIA-YYZ on AC and we were wondering if we could commute between these 2 concourses without going through security checkpoints? We have a membership to the Delta Sky Club in Term H is why I'm asking. Thanks.


    No, H and J are not connected inside security.


    I'm sorry, yes, they are connected, I misread the map.

    I am travelling from Madrid to Managua with 2hs and 15 mins to connect flights in Miami Airport - Do I need an ESTA authorization just for connecting flights? - If so, is there enough time 2 hs and 15 mins to clear immigration, baggage pick up and customs? - Do I have to pick up my luggage if both flights are American Airlines? Thank you very much


    Yes, you need ESTA. Yes, you should have enough time. If both flights are on American you won't have to claim and re-check your bags, just go through US Immigration, customs, and security.
