Hi, Would I be able to arrive from Singapore at 915pm and connect to a United flight at 1045pm?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi there. I will arrive at Terminal 3 on tuesday at 19.40 and have a connecting flight from T1 to germany at 20.55 ..is this enough time or should i try to get an earlier flight..thanks. simon
There are no flights to Germany from Terminal 1. Perhaps you mean the International Terminal. if the flights are on United/Lufthansa you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and you have enough time.
Hello. My mom is travelling from Singapore to Phoenix, AZ on United. Stop-over and connecting flight in SFO. Arriving 0915H and flight to PHX is at 1100H, since she's travelling alone, would she have enough time to clear customs immigration and make it for her flight on United to PHX? Thanks (:
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving from Portland Oregon - on Alaska airlines and we have a Singapore airlines flight to Singapore 2.5 hours later. Do we need to exit our terminal and re-check in at Singapore counter - then head to the gate is 2 hours enough time? No checked bags..
Yes, you will have to do that since they're on opposite sides of the International Terminal.
How long does it take to travel from Terminal 2 to International terminal, are the terminal buildings connected??
It takes about 10-15 minutes on the AirTrain and then you have to go through security again in the International Terminal.
Arriving from Redding CA, headed to Seattle, with only 36 minutes of layover? Both flights are United but would they be in the same terminal? Will I have enough time?
Yes, they are both in Terminal 3. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time but no time to spare.
Hi, i will be coming from OGG(hawaii) at 6:30 AM (United) to San Francisco to Denver, my flight is at 7:00 AM. With only a 30 minute layover, is that doable? All of this is United.
It is possible if the flight from Maui is on-time.
Do we have to collect our baggage and re-check in again? How far is the walk and are there carts or porters to assist?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags to take them through US customs, There are carts in the International baggage claim.
Is there enough time to go through customs? On a Sunday arrive SFO from Paris at 11:45 AM connecting to domestic flight SFO to SNA at 1:05 PM both flights booked on United - same ticket. Second choice is 4 hour layover
Realistically 80 minutes is not enough time.
Arriving Alaska Airlines from Portland Oregon to connect with a Virgin Airlines flight to NYC. directions please in the terminal.
You will arrive in the International Terminal and depart from Terminal 2. Follow directions from Alaska Airlines on how to get between them.
