I'm departing ANC on Alaska Air(terminal S) & which gate or terminal do I arrive at in SEA..I have to depart on Korean Air(to INC) but have no gate or terminal info. INC to MNL also How do I find it..sorry about this 1st time trying to go anywhere. Thanks
Alaska Airlines from Anchorage will arrive in C, D, or N. In Seoul you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
If we are travelling from Victoria to Seattle with Delta(all one reservation) then connecting flight to LAX would u pick up your baggage, go thru customs, baggage check in and security all in the S Terminal? And when we are in the S terminal is all of this on the same floor or will we have to go down to get baggage and then back up to a different floor. and when we go to catch our flight to LAX do we have to go to the main terminal. We only have 1hour and 38 minutes between landing in seattle and leaving for LA and wanted to get this straight. Thanks.
Yes, you do that all in the basement of the S Satellite. Then you go through security and upstairs if your flight departs from S or to the underground train if your flight departs from A or B. You have enough time.
Just wondering do i need to have a visa for transit from Seattle to Vancouver if i am holding hong kong passport?
Yes, you need a US Transit Visa.
I am flying from Vancouver to Paris with one hour layover in Seattle. Do I need to pick up luggage and go through secutity/immigeration? I feel one hour layover might not be enough if thats the case
You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver on your way to Paris. Therefore your arrival into Seattle will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Is 90 minutes enough time to connect in Amsterdam when flying from the US to Copenhagen as final destination?
That depends on on-time arrival at AMS. Arrivals from a non-Schengen (foreign) country: note that the passport will be checked upon arrival at, and departure from, Amsterdam Airport. On arrival, after passport control, follow signs to 'Baggage Hall' located on the ground level, retrieve your bags, & go through customs for security check. If you have nothing to declare, proceed to the Arrivals Hall through the green passage way. If connecting to a Schengen country, go through ticket control & security check; if connecting to a non-Schengen country, security check will be at the gate. Note that the transfer desks offer transfer information.
