  • Edmonton to Seattle
    May 15, 2016

    Hello! I am considering flying from Edmonton, Alberta to Seattle and will have only a 56 minute layover until my Seattle to Pasco flight. Will this be enough time? For some reason, I can't remember if I am pre-cleared for US immigration in Edmonton or not. I am a US citizen living in Canada and I do remember that customs is generally fast coming back in.

     

    Yes, you will clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton.

    I will be arriving to seattle from phoenix via delta. I then will have a flight to Korea. Will I have to go through security again?

     

    No, you will not. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    thank you so much.

    I have an hour lay over; is that enough time to get to my connecting flight if I have to take a train to the correct terminal?

     

    That should be enough time. The trains run frequently and inside security and there's a good possibility you won't even have to take one.

    I am flying in from New Delhi to San Diego via Seattle by Emirates. I have an Indian passport and the layover time at Seattle is 1hr45mins. My flight is by Alaskan Airlines. Will I get enough time to clear customs and do check-in baggage ?

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    Hi there, I am flying into seattle airport from Victoria, and have a 2 hour and 30 min connecting time and then onward to LAX. Is this enough time to go through immigration and get my bags and recheck them? Thanks in advance for any info!

     

    Yes that should be enough time as long as everything is on the same reservation.

     

  • Connection Air Canada to United

    I have a 48 minute connection arriving on Air Canada and departing on United. Enough time? AC flight will be a Bombardier Q400 flight so not sure if that will be walking on Tarmac to gate.

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs at your origin and both Air Canada and United use concourse A in Seattle and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I arrive from Vancouver and have 1 hour 20 minutes to connect with my JFK flight. I'm checking luggage. Will the checked luggage be transferred to the connecting flight in time?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be transferred. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.

    Flying in from YVR (clear US customs in Vancouver) to catch flight to KOA. Both legs on Delta. We have 55 minutes. Is that enough time? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that is enough time, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I will be flying from Montego Bay, Jamaica to Atlanta then from Atlanta to Seattle then Seattle to Alaska. Flights are through Delta. Will I have to go through security again in Seattle and recheck my bags. If so, how much time should I have between flights

     

    All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. As little as 30-45 minutes is doable.

    Hello, I am flying with Alaskan Airlines from Honolulu to Seattle and then transferring to British Airways from Seattle to London Heathrow. I have a connection time of 2 hours and 25 minutes. Will this be enough time? I will have luggage and don't know if I will need to pick up in Seattle and check it back in or not. Thanks

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Seattle. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

     

    Thank you for your reply I have just thought I don't know if it counts as the same reservation or not? All flights were booked through British Airways on the phone but the flight with Alaskan airlines does not have a BA code it is AS. Other flights with British Airways such as American Airlines have been given a BA code. I hope that makes sense.

     

  • Seattle first port of call

    I am travelling from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Anchorage, Alaska via Tokyo. Will arrive from Tokyo to Seattle and then catch a connecting flight to Anchorage. I was advvised that since Seattle is my first port of call when entering USA, I have to claim my baggage and go through Immigration and Customs. Is this correct? How far away is the terminal for the connecting fight to Anchorage (Delta Air). Would I have enough time as I arrive at 9:16 and depart at 14:45. Thank you

     

    Yes, that is correct. You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in the S, A, or B concourse.

    I am planning on arriving on the last Hawaiian airlines flight from Maui and connecting to a Delta flight 90 later. Is this enough time to collect bags and go through security again?

     

    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    Flying delta from JFK to KOA with 45 min layover and checked luggage, enough time? Thanks

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.

    Flying from SJC on Alaska Airlines, then connection to Icelandic Air for flight to Iceland. I don't know if my bags will be transferred, and I don't know what gates I'll arrive from and leave from. Help?

     

    you will arrive at C, D, or N and depart from S. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to go to the main terminal and claim your bags then re-check them with Icelandair and go through security. If you purchased all your tickets together then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Need some advice on connection

    I am due to land in Seattle on monday and have a 1:30hr stop over before my connection flight. I know this is the minimum connection time, however I cannot change my flight or ticket so will have to just hope it is possible.. Could anyone advise me on how to best get from my arrivals gate to departure gate via customs and security etc. I am arriving at 13:18 from London Heathrow on Virgin Atlantic (operated by Delta). My connecting flight departs at 14:47 to Vancouver with Virgin Atlantic (operated by Delta). Where do I have to go once I land, which satellite and likely gates etc? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks

     

    You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security. Your flight to Vancouver will likely depart from concourse A or B, which is connected to concourse S by an underground train.
