  • Cancun to PHX connection
    Oct 24, 2014
    We have an 1:30 layover arriving from Cancun to PHX on Saturday after Thanksgiving, both flights are US Airways, arrival 7:36 p.m. do we have enough time to clear Customs, gather our bags, recheck, then make our connection? I know this is busy season so I am a little concerned. We are a family of 5 in the middle of the plane. Thank you for your advice.


    Saturday after Thanksgiving shouldn't be too bad and Phoenix doesn't have many international flights. You should be OK.


    Thank you! Definitely don't want to end our vacation in a stressful situation. Appreciate you taking the time to respond. Enjoy the day.

    I am arriving in PHX on US Airways and departing on United with a 1 hr 30 min layover. Will I need to exit the secure area to change airlines ? Will I have enough time to do so ?


    Yes, you will, United uses a different terminal from US Airways. 1 hr 30 mins should be enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare.

    I am flying from Salt Lake City to NY via Phoenix. I land at 8:58pm and depart again at 9:50. is 50 min enough time to make connection on a US Airways flight from SLC to American Airlines flight to EWR? No baggage to check. Both flighs in terminal 4. Thanks. Teenager travelling solo.


    Both flights will be US Airways. You should have plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • American Airlines connections
    Sep 22, 2014
    I am considering a flight from Seattle to Phoenix which gives me a 44 minute layover to catch a connecting American Airlines flight to San Jose, Costa Rica. Is this enough time to make my connecting flight? Are American Airlines gates all in the same area and inside security so that we don't have to go through security again? Will this be enough time to get connecting flight?


    Your flights will actually be operated by US Airways (assuming they haven't fully merged with American by the time of your flight). All US Airways gates at PHX are connected inside security. That should be enough time but doesn't leave much buffer for delays.

    We are British Passport Holders flying from Vegas to Cabo with a 1hr 9min connection in Phoenix all flights with US Airways - is this enough time & will we have to collect our baggage at Phoenix & check it in again? First time in USA & first time on internal flights so not sure how it works? Thank you


    No, you won't have to collect your baggage or do anything in Phoenix except go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Mexican Immigration and customs when you get to Cabo.

    We will belying us airways on both flights. We land at 8:55pm and depart again at 9:40. I'm pregnant so running isn't really a super great option. Will we make it? Should we request for help?

    We are flying Southwest into Phoenix on 4/27/14. We land at 7:55am and transfer to another southwest flight to Orange County airport leaving at 8:30am. Will we have enough time to make our connecting flight?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All Southwest flights in PHX are in the C and D concourse of Terminal 4 and connected beyond security.


  • PHX to YUM - 28 min layover
    Feb 8, 2014
    Anyone done this one recently? Arrive in PHX 07:52, leave for YUM 08:20. Will I have to run b/w flights to make it?


    Is your arriving flight also on US Airways? If so you can make it but you'll have to run. If not you have no chance.

    Arriving on Southwest from Sacramento, flight will be delayed and no time left to get to next Southwest flight goes to San Antonio from gate D7 to C2 how far is that?


    They are in adjacient "fingers" of the terminal. Maybe a 5-10 minute walk.


  • Tucson to Cancun through PHX... Enough time?
    Dec 12, 2013
    Question: arrive from Tucson on U.S. 40 minutes to catch U.S. Flight to Cancun. Where do I go through immigration? Enough time?


    If both of your flights are on US Airways and your flight is on-time you will have enough time. All you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Mexican immigration in Cancun.


    Thank You


  • 48 minute layover

    Flying Vancouver,Canada to Mexico and have 48 minutes to change planes in Phoenix. Both flights are US Airways. Enough time?


    Yes, it should be. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver so all you will have to do in Phoenix is go from gate to gate.


    Oct 15, 2013
    I am arriving in PHX on SWA and transferring to a US Airways flight. No checked bags. Do I have to go through a security checkpoint to change airlines?


    Both airlines serveTerminal 4 - no need for security check. A moving walkway connects all gates areas A through D on three sides of the food court
