    I plan to fly from Canada to Costa Rica with a 1:08 layover in PHX. Do I have to clear custom in PHX? Do I have enough time?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Phoenix on your way to Costa Rica is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We are using Southwest to fly from Denver to Phoenix. We arrive at 8:40AM. We will then fly from Phoenix to Mazatlan on American Airlines leaving at 11:00 am. Will we have to go out to ticketing to get our boarding pass for American airlines flight, not sure it will be available to get on line since it is interenational. Will we have enough time?


    Try to check in online, if it can't be issued online you can get it at the departure gate. Thus no need to exit security as long as you don't have checked bags.

    I arrive on Southwest in terminal 4 with checked luggage and have 2 hours to board United fight to Europe n terminal 2. Do I have enough time and how do I get to termoinal 4 from terminal 2


    United doesn't fly from Phoenix to Europe. Are you stopping somewhere else first? Do you have checked bags?


    I DO HAVE CHECKED BAGGAGE .The United flight from Phoenix goes to Chicago. So I will have 2 hours to land in Terminal 4, get my checked bag, and get over to Terminal 2 , and check in at United. Will 2 hours be enough time or will I be cutting it close. Also what is the transportation from Terminal 4 to terminal 2. Thanks for your help. Mike Rue


    That should be just enough time if the Southwest flight is on-time. You have to take the SkyTrain from Terminal 4 to Terminal 3 and then a walkway to Terminal 2.


  • how can i check that i have to claim my baggage during layover?

    sorry for my poor english skill. i will go from Austin to Lasvegas via PHX. I have only 45minutes. Then, i don't know whether i have to claim my luggage and send it again or the luggage transferring is automatical. where can i check it?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then you don't have to claim your bags in Phoenix.


  • Connection to Canada?
    Aug 4, 2016
    Hello, I have a connection from PHX to Canada - will i have to go through customs or do I just go straight to the PHX terminal? - Also going back I stop in Seattle back to America - do I go through customs in between as well? Thanks


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. On your return to the US you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada.


  • Coming from London

    I'm arriving from London with British Airways and will continue to Reno. In between I have only 2 hours 51 minutes - is this enough time for customs and US immigration?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    I have a 38min Layover in PHX. Going from SEA-PHX-CLT All on American. Will I make it?


    You have enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time but you obviously have no time to spare if it's not.


  • 35mns transfer, enough time?
    Jul 30, 2016
    I have a flight from LAX to Flagstaff with American Airlines with only 35mns layover. Is it enough time considering we will have check-in luggages? They offer this itinerary on the website but seems very tight...Thx!


    It is possible but it obviously leaves very little time to spare if there are any delays.


  • Southwest connections in terminal 4

    Southwest Airlines from Louisville KY to Portland OR with a plane change in Phoenix. 1 checked bag. 45 minutes between. Arrival and departure in Phoenix. Can I make the connections?


    Yes, it is enough time but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Louisville is late.


  • International Transfer

    I will be transferring on AA through PHX, as I am coming from Mexico then leaving to Mexico again still on AA will I have to clear customs and security ?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the check in desk (since these have to be two separate reservations and AA won't let you book a ticket between two points in Mexico on the same reservation), and then go through security. You need at least 2 hours for this transfer.

    My husband and I have a 1hr and 15min layover in Phoenix. We land at 6:45am in terminal 4 on AA in terminal 4 and will need to get to terminal 3 on Hawaii for our 8am flight. We do not have checked luggage. Will be have to go through security again and will this be enough time?


    Yes, you will have to go through security. With no checked bags this is barely enough time if you check in online for your Hawaiian flight before leaving on your first flight.


  • Fly in on American Fly Out American Eagle
    Jul 10, 2016
    We are traveling from Kona Hawaii to Albuquerque and need to change planes from American to American Eagle. What terminal does American Eagle leave from. We are looking at 1.5 hour layover but husband is blind so need to plan carefully.


    Both are in Terminal 4. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • OGG -> PHX

    When I land into Phoenix from Maui, do I have to go through customs and immigrations ? I have a connection in 2 hours on Southwest outbound from Phoenix. Therefore is it enough time to make the connection ?


    Hawaii and Arizona are both conveniently located in the United States of America. There is no Customs or immigration when travelling within the United States. 2 Hours should be just enough time if you have checked bags and plenty of time if you don't have checked bags.


  • American connecting flight YVR - PHX - IAH
    Jun 29, 2016
    Landing in PHX from YVR. Only have 75 minutes layover before hopping on another American airlines to go to IAH. No checked baggage. Easy transfer ?? Or do I have to go through security again ?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Phoenix is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • 3hr in PHX.
    Jun 15, 2016
    My Grandparents have a 3hr layover on there way to HNL on July 10th. If they don't want to eat what's in Concourse A Terminal 4 can they go out to the main section & Go through security again? Will they have Enough time? What else can they do?


    All the concourses in Terminal 4 are connected inside security, so they could go to any of them.
