    I'm flying out to Seattle from Victoria tomorrow morning with a 1hr 20min lay over before flying out to Denver - all flights with Delta. If I check baggage will we need to claim it in Seattle and clear US customs or will our checked baggage be transferred directly through to Denver and only we will need to clear US Customs prior to boarding our flight to Denver? Thanks,

     

    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 via the underground train. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

    Thanks for the info - I think we will just bring carry on to limit any chance of delay. We are flying into S terminal in Seattle and out of B. Any tips on the best way to navigate through Immigration and Customs? Much appreciated

     

    S and B are just concourses - immigration in Seattle is very straightforward - it will be the only place to go once you arrive.

    Hi , arriving in Gate D1, connecting flight Gate C7 both Alaskan Air,, we have 1 1/2 hr time, will that make it? and how far are the gate traveling with elderly parents

     

    It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to get between those gates. You have plenty of time.

     

  • one hour layover in Seattle

    I am flying on Alaska from SFO to SEA with a one hour layover. I then fly with British Airways from SEA to Heathrow. Is a one hour layover enough time. The reservation is all the way from SFO to Heathrow. Do I need to collect my bags in Seattle and recheck them?

     

    If everything is on the same reservation then you do not have to do anything with your bags in Seattle on your way to London. Just go from your arrival gate in concourse C, D, or N to your departure gate in the S Concourse via the underground train.

     

    Thank you for this information. Do you think an hour layover is sufficient?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time.

    My wife and I are moving back from Shanghai after 4 years there. We will be coming with 8-10 bags on Delta from Shanghai and 9:13 am, and will need to clear customs and get to an Alaska/Horizon flight at 10:45am. Will the 92 minutes of layover be enough to make our flight?

     

    That's a very difficult connection.

     

    Thanks, home is in Central Oregon and we need to be there by 5pm, so we reserved a car as a backup plan because there are only 2 flights a day.

     

    I will be flying in from Dubai on Emirates and have a connecting flight in Alaska to Vegas. I have a lay over time of 1hr 45 minutes. Is it enough? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, travelling from Victoria BC to SEA (Delta) and to San Diego, CA (SWA) with 2 hour layover. Is that enough to clear Immigration and customs for a US green card holder?

     

    With checked bags this is pretty difficult. With no checked bags I think you should have enough time.

    Hello; I was just notified of a flight change which now will mean a 1 hr 8 min connection, both Delta flights DTW - SEA - HKG. Would you recommend accepting this timing? Thank you for your help!

     

    Yes, not a problem

    I am flying from LAX to Seattle on SWA then changing planes to go to Vancouver, BC on Delta. With TSA issues I will be carrying on my luggage, but want to confirm I won't need to go through TSA a second time when going from SWA to Delta? Will they just check my passport at the gate?

     

    Yes, you won't have to go through security. Yes, they will just check your passport at the gate. YOu will go through Canadian immigration and customs in Vancouver.

    I will arrive in Seattle at 6:39 am. I have a separate reservation to fly out of Seattle to Iceland at 9:15. I will not need to go to baggage claim after the first flight. Can I remain in the secure area, and avoid going through security on departing Seattle?

     

    Yes, if your bags are checked through you don't have to go through security in Seattle.

    Flying into SEA from Phoenix to catch a flight on Icelandair. Will have 2 separate tickets. How much time do I need to allow to get bags and recheck luggage for Icelandair flight?

     

    I recommend at least 3 hours because of having to re-check bags.

    I know I will pre-clear customs in Calgary, but I want to change my connecting flight in SEA from Delta to Alaska Air. If I do not have any checked baggage, is there anything special I need to do in SEA or can I just go straight to my departing gate?

     

    Yes, if you already have your Alaska boarding pass you will be able to go directly to your Alaska boarding gate after clearing customs and security.

     

  • Fly from South Korea

    Hello, my mom will fly on Delta from South Korea. She needs to take Alaska Airlines. She has check-in luggages. She will arrive at 12:45pm on May 24 and her flight to Ontario leave at 2:10. So she only has 1 and half hour. Is it possible?

     

    If she is on two separate reservations this will be pretty much impossible. If all tickets are on the same reservation it is barely possible if everything goes perfectly.

    I have layover time 2 hrs 20 mins in SEA airport to HNL. I have to clear immigration and re-check the luggage. Will this time sufficient? What are the concourse for Emirates and Hawaiian. How far they are?

     

    Are your tickets purchased on one reservation or two separate reservations?

     

    One reservation with Emirates.

    Will arrive on Alaskan Airlines after a cruise and have 2 hours to get to United airlines flight. Will I have time to get luggage & get thru security to next flight

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you can somehow do this trip with no checked baggage that would make your connection in SEA much easier as you wouldn't have to exit security.

    We go Victoria to SeaTac Tomorrow Arrive SeaTac 6:20AM Will we have to pick up our bags to clear customs? Connecting flight at 8:20 to minneapolis. Enough time? Would be be better off with just carry ons?

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs then re-check them at the re-check desk. Just having carry-ons will save you some time.
