I am flying from Sacramento (SMF) to Vancouver (YVR) and i will be stopping in Seattle. I leave very early from Sacramento to Seattle, so is this leg going to be considered an international flight, or will the Seattle to Vancouver leg the international portion? I only have 1 hour in Seattle, will this be enough time to go through customs if i have to go through customs in Seattle? Thank you for your help.
The Seattle to Vancouver leg is considered international. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You just show your passport when boarding the plane to Vancouver.
We are flying this Sunday from LHR (British Air) to Anchorage(Alaska Air) with a layover in Seattle. Arriving Seattle at 11:15 and depart 13:30 for Anchorage...no idea on terminals so 1. wondered if these gates will be close to each other, 2. if we will have to go through another security check after clearing customs/immigration, 3. Will we have to go to a different location to re-check bags or will it be just after customs/immigration? Both flights are on the same itinerary booked through BA. If we do need to go through security, will we need to remove ALL of our cameras and electronics? We are photographers so will have a lot of cameras and lenses with us. 4. Will we have enough time for our transfer?
Seattle only has one terminal. You will arrive in the S Satellite. Go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security, and go to your departure gate. You do not have to take lenses out of bags to go through security. Just the camera bodies.
