Hi I am flying from Boston to Portland and then on to Medford, Oregon. I am on Alaska Airlines and then on an Alaskan Airlines flight that is operated by Horizon Airlines to Medford...any one know which terminal I will arrive at and depart from at PDX? I will have a checked bag...I was told this is a connection that I could make...
Portland has only one terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
You'll likely arrive in Concourse C, and will have to walk to Concourse A (not a long walk at all).
Hello,
I'm so glad you have this blog. I can not find out the minimum connecting time between Southwest and Alaska airlines. I will need to claim checked bags and then re check them, and go thru security. I am traveling form Albany, NY to Bend/Redmond.
Can you tell me how much time to allow for this process?
I've never been to PDX before?

Thanks so much for your help,
Cathy
I would want at least 2 hours.
Thanks so much!
Hi, I arrive at 11:30am from Amsterdam on 9/23 (DL 179) and transfer to DL 68 (going to Los Angeles) that leaves at 12:27. Is that going to be enough time? Do I need to go back through security? Note: I have TSA Pre-Check and I am flying First Class.
Yes, you have to go through security again. With First class and Pre-check your should have just enough time.
Hello, I'm traveling on Nov and arriving from Narita Japan, my layover in PDX is only 54 mins and connecting to Detroit. I will have carry on and checked bags. I'm flying Delta airlines. Would that be enough time to go through customs and catch my next flight? Thanks!
It might be possible, Immigration and Customs in Portland in November is very unlikely to be very crowded and it's likely there will be only maybe 100 people on your flight.
Coming from LAX on Alaska Airlines then on Icelandia to Reykjavik. Do I have to go through TSA again? Use a wheelchair. How difficult is it to get to the correct concourse for Iceland flight?
If it's one reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am typing in-flight from IAD to PDX (United flight # 326) scheduled to land 11:07pm PST local time. I am on Alaskan flight # 2019 that is scheduled to depart 11:10pm PST tonight Thursday 3 August.

Would please ask the crew at Alaskan Airlines flight #2303 from PDX to RDM to wait 5-minutes for me to catch this flight?

Please help me! We had over 8-hours of flight delays today because of the weather - I need to make this flight from PDX to Redmond tonight.

Please let me know if this is possible or please get me in contact with somebody who can help me communicate this message to the AA2303 crew (email, not phone because I'm in-flight).

Thank you!!
Allison

Correction: Please ask Alaskan Air #2303 PDX-RDM to wait 5-minutes for my delayed arrival. I need to make this flight to Redmond!!
I am flying Alaskan Airlines SMF-PDX arriving at 11:45am and connecting flight also Alaskan is departing at 12:15. Will a 30 minute layover be enough time to make connecting flight. No carry-on checked bags.
Yes, that's enough time if the first flight is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare.
Hello,

I'm looking at the following flights, with 2 checked-in bags:
1802 Vancouver - Portland 1910
1955 Portland - Spokane 2100

Is 45m enough to make this connection? Will I have to go through passport control?

I would appreciate anyone who can make a swift response!

Many thanks,

LW
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Portland is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I have a flight coming in from gate c18 and then a connecting flight going out of gate d4. How long of a walk is it from gate to gate?
That should take less than 10 minutes.
I have a flight on Alaska that gets in from Redmond Or at 2:08 and a flight out with Southwest the same day at 2:50 . Is that cutting it too close?
With no checked bags it's possible but risky. With checked bags it's impossible.
