    5 of us are coming into Miami with connection to Washington DC with a 2.5 hour layover(early evening). Is that enough time to get through security & customs for all of us (US citizens)?


    Where are you flying to Miami from? What airlines are you flying?

    Apr 15, 2016
    where does key west, fl flight arrive at mia airport, how do I get to american airlines flight to Charlotte, NC. Key west flight is am eagle flight. How long does it take to change terminals? any stairs? Am over 65 years old.


    You should not have to go up any stairs. All AA gates in Miami are connected inside security. It shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes to get from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have a lot of trouble getting around you should maybe request wheelchair assistance by calling AA.


  • Time needed for layover
    Apr 13, 2016
    Hi! I am trying to choose a flight from LAX, connecting through Miami, to Grand Cayman. One option has a two hour layover and the other has a four hour layover. It has been many years since I've traveled internationally, so I don't remember the procedure for customs, etc. I would appreciate your thoughts on whether the two hour layover will be sufficient. We'll be traveling in early November, mid-week, and we are four U.S. citizens and one Australia citizen. We will be checking bags and traveling on AA. On the way to Grand Cayman, do we go through customs in both Miami and GCM? Will we need to re-check our bags in Miami? Thanks in advance! :)


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 2 hours is enough time.

    I am arriving on AA from Phila. Will one hour be enough to make my connection to an AA flight to Panama City? I will have checked baggage.


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 1 hour layover!

    Hi, I'm getting into miami intern at 8.45pm and connecting flight to JFK at 9.50pm, both on american airlines - carry on luggage only, will this be enough? thanks


    Where are you flying into Miami from?


    ah sorry should have mentioned, i am flying in from san deigo, so it is an internal flight


    Then yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    I'm traveling from Newark to Bogotá Colombia with 45 minutes layover in Miami. It will be enough time???


  • Miami to Marsh Harbour
    Apr 10, 2016
    Hi, I will be travelling from Toronto to Marsh Harbour, connecting from Miami on April 29. My flight arrives at Miami airport at 9:46 am and my next flight is at 11:10 am to Marsh Harbour. Do you think I will be able to make it to my next flight on time, and I am travelling from American Airlines.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Miami on your way to Marsh Harbour is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I will arrive to MIA from outside the country at 17:55 with American Airlines and will have to take a Delta flight that will leave at 20:08 (I'm only traveling with a carry-on). Do you think I'll have enough time?


    With carry-on only maybe if everything goes perfectly. Be prepared to either buy another ticket to Orlando or drive to Orlando.


  • transfering from delta to Insel
    Apr 6, 2016
    Thank you very much for your help. Now, I am looking at flying Delta to MIA and then transfering, with 1 hour and 20 minutes, to Insel to CUR. On the way back, we would have 3 1/2 hrs to transfer back to Delta. The return is four days before Christmas. Enough time?


    With checked bags that transfer on the way to CUR will be very difficult. The transfer on the way back should be OK.

    I have Flight From India April 20th 13hrs to Miami toApril 20th 22.30hrs Newyork to April 21st 18hrs Spain Barcelona. I have C1 Valid visa. Can do custom check Miami or New york?


    There are no nonstop flights from India to Miami. You go through US Immigration and customs at your first stop in the US.


  • LAN to AA
    Apr 4, 2016
    Hi! I have a LAN flight from Chile that is expected to arrive @ 7.15 am and I have a connection flight AA 9.25 am. I would like to know if 2 h and 10´would be enough to do customs, clear luggage, check in again and pass through security on the D wing. When is the rush our @ MIA airport? Thanks!


    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. MIA will be busy at that time. Where are you flying on AA?


  • Is 3 hours enough?
    Apr 4, 2016
    I'm arriving at Miami airport on AA2440 from Belize at 3.08pm and leaving for London on AA56 at 6.10pm. Is 3 hours sufficient time to catch the connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Hi! I'll be flying into MIA from Germany on BerlinAir on a Wednesday and catching a connecting flight to DFW on AA. I land at 1350 and leave at 1550. I've got a US Passport but will have checked bags, will this be enough time? Thanks


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. AA has frequent flights from MIA to DFW if you miss your connection.


  • A god amount of time for a transfer with AA
    Apr 2, 2016
    I have read a number of examples regarding arriving at MIA from out of country and travelling on to another U.S. City. Can I assume that 2 hours is a good amount of time to complete the process? My example is CUR MIA DTW.


    2 hours is the least amount of time I would recommend.


  • Santiago to MIA to Salt Lake City
    Apr 1, 2016
    I am arriving at 4:25 AM on American from Santiago. I would like to catch a 7:00 AM Delta flight to Salt Lake City. Is 2.5 hours a reasonable amount of layover through customs (US Passport) given I am shifting from American to Delta? Thank you.


    I think that would be possible if everything went smoothly.


  • AA connecting flight
    Apr 1, 2016
    Hi, i am flying in June from with AA from Milan (ITALY) to Lima peru and have 2hrs connecting time at Miami Internationa Airport (should be same terminal). I dont have an american passport. Is that eough time? In case my flight is not on time, will AA put me on the next flight witout extra charges or will i have to buy my ticket again?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security, but do not have to claim and re-check your bags since you are on an International to International connection on AA. Yes, if you miss your connection AA will put you on the next flight. However, that won't be until the next afternoon.
