  • International Overnight Layover
    Sep 8, 2016
    I'll be flying in from Kelowna to Colorado Springs with an overnight layover. I know I'll have to go through customs, but due to the layover will I be forced to stay outside of the secured area all night? The flight lands at 4pm and my connection takes off at 8am the next day.


    Yes, you will have to essentially exit the airport. You won't be allowed through security until 4:30-5 AM the next morning.


  • Flying from Beijing to Salt Lake City ,connecting in Seattle
    Aug 11, 2016
    I am travelling from Beijing to Seattle by Hainan airlines and later by Alaskan Airlines from Seattle to Salt Lake City .Both tickets are on the same reservation.I will have one checked luggage. I have 2hr and 40min connection in SEA.The flight will arrive in SEA at 11:35 AM ,I wonder if that will be a busy period. Is 2 hr and 40 min enough time to through US Immigration,claim baggage, go through customs, re-check luggage ,go through security and get to the other terminal/gate?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    arriving the usual 2 hrs before flight. Is that enough time with all the TSA check delays


    It depends on the time of day. Most of the time at SEA, 2 hours is sufficient.

    My girlfriend will be arriving at gate A11. How close to the gate can I get to greet her?


    You have to meet her at the exit of security or the baggage claim in the main terminal.


  • Transfer to same airline from Edmonton
    Nov 26, 2014
    WE will be flying in from Edmonton on Alaska air so was wondering what and where we would need to go to get on the plane to take us to Hawaii. It is also Alaska air that we are flying with. Do we have to pick up our bags and go through immigration?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
