  • Enuf time?
    Feb 4, 2017
    I'm traveling from Sacramento to Seattle then on to Iceland on one ticket, but two airlines (Alaska and Icelandic). My layover is approx 1 hr 50 min. Will I have time to get to the International terminal?


    Yes that is enough time. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Seattle doesn't have a separate international terminal.

    If I arrive on Hawaiian Air at 11:15 pm with one checked bag will I be able to make a connection to Alaska air at 12:30 am?


    That's barely enough time if you have checked bags


  • Luggage question
    Feb 2, 2017
    I'm traveling from Vancouver to Frankfurt but I have a 4 hour layover in Seattle. Should I pick up my luggage in Seattle or will it go straight to Frankfurt


    If both flights are on the same reservation your bags will go straight to Frankfurt as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.


  • Spokane to SEA to Wash-Reagan ( enough time midday??)
    Feb 1, 2017
    They just sent notice of change in times for both flight segments. Now only have 43 minutes with arrival in SEA at 12:52pm and depart SEA at 1:35pm on Alaska Airlines (with first leg operated by Horizon). Is this enough time (can do carryon only if would help)


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Spokane is on-time. You can reject the schedule change and ask for an earlier flight from Spokane if you want though.


  • Southwest to Jet Blue with a checked bag
    Feb 1, 2017
    I'm arriving in SEA on Southwest and catching my connecting flight with Jet Blue. I have a window of 1hr and 24min. I will have one checked bag. Is this enough time to make the connecting flight?


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to claim your bag from Southwest, re-check it with JetBlue and go through security.


  • How much time do I need
    Feb 1, 2017
    I'm arriving at 9:30 Via Alaska Airlines at SEA. My connecting flight is with Southwest at 10:20. That gives me 50min. I will have 1 checked bag with me. Will I have enough time to make my connection? What's the quickest process to save time?


    You have zero chance of making that with a checked bag.


    Thanks! I'll find a later flight

    Jan 31, 2017
    Hi, I have 1 hour between my scheduled arrival from Vancouver with Air Canada to leaving for Japan with ANA. Is this enough time. we only have hand luggage.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.


    Many thanks, I was getting worried


  • Dubai to Seattle and then to Denver
    Jan 30, 2017
    My flight from Dubai reaches Seattle around 12 PM, and my connecting flight to Denver is at 2 PM. Is it possible to catch my connection flight within 2 hours after completing immigration, baggage claim and security check to my connecting flight?


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

    I have a Delta flight from ATL to FAI. I need a Layout of the Terminals at SEA so I can make the connections to FAI cuickly. I have only 55 minutes.


    Delta uses concourses A, B, and S - a map is available on this website or The flights will likely be in A or B.


  • Alaska to Alaska connection
    Jan 30, 2017
    I have a connecting flight -a prop plane coming in and jet out. Are all Alaska airline gates in the same area in the terminal? I have 41 minutes


    Alaska uses concourses C, D, and N.


    Thank you for the reply. It is appreciated!


  • Customs international arrival then to Canada
    Jan 26, 2017
    If I am coming from Paris via Seattle to Canada, do I need to clear US Customs or just connect to my plane to Canada?


    Yes, in Seattle you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. If you are a European citizen you will need ESTA.


  • 30 min layover
    Jan 26, 2017
    I have a flight from LAX to SEA. Then a flight from SEA to Amsterdam. Is 30 min enough time to make my connecting flight?


    If both flights are on Delta that is just enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.


  • SLC to UK via SEA
    Jan 25, 2017
    Flying from SLC to SEA on Alaska. Arriving at 11.50am. Then flying BA to LHR departing at 1.30pm on a separate reservation. No checked bags. Assuming 1 hour 40 is enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time. If you are able to check in online for your British Airways flight you can go straight to your departure gate.


  • YVR --> SEA --> JNU
    Jan 23, 2017
    Is 50 minutes enough time to connect from Vancouver through Seattle en route to Juneau? Will I need to collect and recheck my bags in Seattle or can I go through a pre-flight customs process in Vancouver?


    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. You have enough time.


  • layover
    Jan 21, 2017
    I will be flying in from the UK and landing in SEA for a connecting flight to Sacramento. Will 1 hour 40 minutes be enough to time to clear immigration (US citizen),baggage claim, and to make it to the gate in time?


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
