  • Concourse C to South Satelite

    I will be arriving at Concourse C from Alaska Airlines and have to reach South Satellite to depart from Emirates. I have a layover of 1hr 45 mins. Is this time enough? Two more questions. Will it be a thru checkin and I will not pick my luggage again. Last..Do I need to go through security as I might not go out of airport. Thanks !!!

     

    No need to ask the same question twice.

     

  • 1.5 hour layover - enough time?

    I have 1.5 hour layover that I need to through US Immigration, claim bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk and then go through security and to their departure gate?? Is this enough time?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thank you so much. Do they have to take the rail / train within the airport to go from international terminal or domestic terminal?

     

    Seattle only has one terminal, If your departing flight is on Delta then you probably won't have to take the train to another concourse. If it is not on Delta then you will.

    My parents who are pretty old are traveling by themselves to visit me in Denver. 1) Does anyone know if they need to get their luggage in Seattle and re-check? 2) When arriving in Seattle from Tokyo, do they have to go to another terminal to catch a domestic flight? Thanks

     

    When they arrive in Seattle they will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk and then go through security and to their departure gate. Seattle only has one terminal but a number of concourses. Their departure concourse depends on what airline they are flying to Denver.

     

    Thank you so much. They only have 1.5 hour layover. Do you think that's enough time or too short?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We're flying from BIO (Spain) to Amsterdam with KLM where we connect to our flight on DELTA arriving at Seattleat 14:03.Then our Alaskan Airlines flight departs at 17:15 to Anchorage. Is it enough a layover of 3HR 12MIN in Seatle? Will we be given our boarding passes to Anchorage in Bilbao (BIO)?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, KLM should be able to issue all your boarding passes in Bilbao. If for some reason they are not you will be able to get it at the transfer desk in Seattle.

    Yes, you have the procedure correct. That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    AS flight arrives at 2220 from Fairbanks and departs for Vancouver at 2310. would 50 mins be enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    No, all you should have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Flight with Virgin into SEA for connect to SAN DIEGO -

    Hi I'm flying to SAN DIEGO from London Heathrow with stop to change planes in SEA, both planes are Virgin run and at the same terminal for land and departure - will I go straight from Gate to Gate OR need to go through customs and back out again ? I only have an hour between flights. Thanks Kev

     

    Both flights will be operated by Delta. In Seattle you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hi, I have a reservation with Alaska Airlines arriving in SEA at 17.35 connecting to British Airways at 19.10. As a code share will checked in bags be automatically transferred between flights?

     

    Yes, you won't have to do anything with your bags in Seattle, just go from your arrival gate in C, D, or N to your departure gate in S.

    Flying from Atlanta to Seattle and only have 40 min layover on Delta to Vancouver? Will that work? Operated by Delta and Delta conncection

     

    It's possible but doesn't leave any time to spare if the flight from Atlanta is delayed.

    REACHING SEATTLE AT SOUTH SATELLITE ON EMIRATES.GOING THROUGH CUSTOMS, IMMIGRATION, COLLECTING LUGGAGE. TRAVELLING ON UNITED AIRLINE AT NORTH SATELLITE 3 HOURS LATER HAVING TO RECHECK LUGGAGE, IS THE TIME ENOUGH FOR TRANSFER

     

    You will have to go to the main terminal to recheck your bags with United. Then go through security. United does not use the N concourse, they use concourse A.

     

  • Connecting: Vancouver-Seattle-Dubai (3 hr layover)

    I'm flying from Vancouver to Dubai via Seattle. Will I have to pick up my bags, clear customs and go through security in Seattle or will customs be done in Vancouver? The itinerary is under one reservation.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi arriving from Kelowna Saturday at 7:10 on Delta(assuming "S") and departing at 9:25 on Delta to Los Cabos--understand will have to go through customs and pick up baggage-how and where do we do that and what gate do we depart from? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in S, 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 up an escalator, you will now be back in the departure level of S where your flight to Cabo departs.

     

    Thanks really appreciate the help--just one last question so do we then not leave "S" at all--Can we do all the immigration, bags and security in "S"

     

    Yes, everything will be handled in S.

    Flying into Seattle from Calgary (Alaska aurlines) and then have 1.5 hours to get to Emirates flight to Dubai. Do I have to get luggage, go through security and recheck bags. If so is 1.5 hours enough time?

     

    Are your flights on one reservation or two separate ones? If it's one reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs before you leave Calgary.

    Will we have enough time to get to the South Satellite we clear customs in Kelowna Canada

     

    There is no US Immigration and Customs preclearance in Kelowna. 1 hour is not enough time for an international to international or international to domestic connection in Seattle.
