  • alaska connectionsto cancun
    Aug 23, 2016
    I will be arriving in Seattle from Portland on Alaska airlines and have only 40 minutes to make my Alaska connection to Cancun. Will I have enough time to catch my Cancun flight with only 40 minutes?


    That is enough time if the flight from Portland is on-time. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if it is not.


  • Delta Flights connection enough time?

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • London (YXU) to Toronto (YYZ) to Seattle (SEA)
    Aug 20, 2016
    I'm connecting from London (YXU) arriving at 6:10 am (terminal 1) in Toronto (YYZ), then departing at 8:00 am to Seattle (SEA) all through Air Canada. Will I have enough time transferring to my flight to Seattle? When will I experience customs/security checks during this trip?


    *Departure from terminal 1 in Toronto


    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.


  • Which terminal for flights to Canada (Kelowna)

    I want to go to a lounge before my Horizon flight to Kelowna on AS2670 on September 21. Which terminal will the flight leave from? I am arriving from Dubai and have a 6.5 hour layover.


    Seattle only has one Terminal. Once you go through security, all gates are connected.


  • Layover Time Query
    Aug 18, 2016
    Hi All, I'll be travelling from Delhi -> Dubai -> Seattle -> Boise in December end this year. My Emirates flight will be reaching at Seattle airport at 6.35 AM and then I've ongoing flight to Boise at 8.00 AM with Alaska. I have several questions about this short layover at Seattle: 1. Is this layover time of 1.25 Hr is sufficient to catch the flight for Boise ? 2. What could be chances of delay/crowd at Seattle in morning time after 6.35 AM ?


    If both flight are on the same reservation then that should be enough time. Your flight should be the only international flight arriving at that time. If you do miss your connection, then Alaska has several daily flights from Seattle to Boise. If this is two separate reservations then it's not enough time.


    Thanks ZAP for prompt reply. Yes, its the same reservation and minimum connection time is also 1.20 Hrs at Seattle. I considered average delay time for Emirates flight which is 20 minutes, so I left with only 1 Hr for everything (port of entry, terminal transport, luggage check-in, security) and that seems to be neck-to-neck. I also checked for next Alaska flight and it is after 5 hours :(


    Quick tip- Try and get seats near the front of the plane if possible. If not, get off the plane quick and walk to customs faster than your fellow passengers. Beat most of them and you should be able to make the connection. If you get off slowly and get behind the 600+ people probably on your flight in the customs line, you will probably fail to catch your connection to Boise.

    I'm travelling from Cancun via Houston (2hr 20 minutes connection and then from Houston to SEA (1hr 16 minutes connection) I'm from the UK travelling, will I be able to make it? I'm flying with United Airlines all the way.


    In Houston, you will clear customs and immigrations. In Seattle, you will simply walk from your arrival gate in concourse A to your Air Canada (operated by United) gate to Vancouver, A7. You have enough time in both Houston and Seattle.


    Also, note that the code for Cancun is CUN. CAN is Guangzhou, China.

    I will have a flight from dallas to Vancouver, I will arrive in Seatle at 10:05 and the next flight to Vancouver is 10:55. Only 50 connection. Is it enough time for me to rush to the gate. I think the two are from diffrent concourse


    Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time.


  • Concourse Change in SEA
    Aug 11, 2016
    I'm flying Alaska Air from LAX to Victoria, BC and have a very short connection time, about 45 minutes. I'm guessing I will need to go to a gate in a different concourse. I won't be checking bags. Any idea how much time I will need to switch planes?


    That should be enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.


  • How early to arrive?
    Aug 10, 2016
    I have a 5:30 am flight. How early do I need to arrive at the airport?


    About 4 should be sufficient.


    Aug 9, 2016
    I have 1:20 connection in SEA to go onwards to Canada (Vancouver then onto Edmonton). Do I need to collect luggage and clear US customs just to connect or are the bags checked through? This would all be on the same ticket.


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. Even if all your flights are on the same reservation that's not reasonably enough time.

    We are flying from LHR to SEA and then have 2 hours to get on an Alaskan airlines flight to Bellingham, is this enough time? We will have 2 checked bags and the bookings were made separately our international flight is with BA...what will we need to do? Thanks


    You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, put your bags on another belt to go to the main terminal, take a train to the main terminal, then go to the baggage claim and claim your bags again then take them to the Alaska Airlines check-in desk, check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. I would just drive to Bellingham.


    Also, I don't know if i was clear but it's practically impossible to do that in 2 hours.


  • Arrival via EVA Air from Taipei to connect Alaskan to Anchorage
    Aug 7, 2016
    Will I be able to make it if I arrive at 1950hrs to catch the connecting 2200hrs flight? Is there enough time to clear immigration and then to re checkin the luggages?


    If both tickets are on the same reservation that is enough time.


  • 40 Minute Run??
    Aug 4, 2016
    We have 40 mins. between arriving Alaskan flight from Medford, OR with connection to Alaskan flight to Billings, MT Will 40 minutes give us enough time to walk or run to our gate?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I am travelling from Dubai to Seattle by Emirates and later by Alaskan Airlines from Seattle to Denver on one ticket. Where should recheck my baggage in South Satellite terminal after finishing my immigration and customs? How long it takes to reach South Satellite terminal to Concourse C -Alaskan airlines?


    You will re-check your bags in at the re-check desk right after you clear customs. Then you will go through security and to C using the underground trains. Once you get through security it shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to get to your gate in C.


  • Flying from Maui to Vancouver - connecting in Seattle
    Aug 2, 2016
    We are flying from Maui to Seattle via Delta Airlines, arriving Concourse B, and transferring to our Vancouver flight (via SkyWest aka Delta Connection) at South Satellite 55 mins later. This was all booked on the same ticket. Do we have to go through customs/security? Will our bags be checked through to Vancouver? How long will it take to get from Concourse B to South Satellite, and is 55 mins enough time?


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to get between gates. You have enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Also Vancouver flights rarely leave from S - usually A or B.
