  • DBX-SEA_PORTLAND 1.5 hrs layover
    Apr 2, 2016

    DBX to SEA is on Emirates SEA to Portland is on Alaska Air (codeshare with Emirates) Both flights are on same ticket. 1. Will I need to collect bags at SEA, recheck the bags at Alaska Air counter & then go through security check to catch my SEA-Portland flight? 2. Is 1.5hrs enough time for the transfer? My DBX-SEA flight arrives at 7AM (0700 hrs) 3. Route/Transfer options from SouthSatellite (EMIRATES) to ALaska airlines. Thanks!

     

    Yes, in Seattle 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 take the underground train to the C, D, or N concourse where your flight to Portland will depart. You barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly, but Alaska flies flights to Portland every 30 minutes, so it's not a big deal if you miss your connection, you will be rebooked.

     

    Great. Thanks for the update.

    Hi I am travelling from Calgary to San Jose with layover in Seattle for 45 Minutes. I am wondering if this is sufficient time to cross immigration. I will not have any checked baggage. Thanks

     

    Also this is going to be a delta connection,

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from Calgary is on-time.

    I am traveling from LAX to YVR with a 40-minute layover in Seattle. Can it be done? I know it'll be close regardless, but will I need to go through customs there? Is 40 minutes cutting it too close?

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Did you make it? I have a 35 min layover to go to Victoria BC. Thx

     

    I decided to book a different flight with an hour wait time to be sure.

    International flight from Narita, Japan to MCI(Kansas City). Is a 1hr 24min layover enough time to catch our connecting flight from Delta to Alaska Airlines, to reach our destination in Kansas City- MCI?

     

    No, that is not enough time for an international to domestic connection in Seattle.

     

  • From Victoria to Los Angeles via Seattle, 1.30 hour enough?

    Hello, I am thinking of buying a ticket from Victoria to Los Angeles via Seattle with Delta Air Lines (one reservation). the layover time is one and a half hour. I would like to know if it is enough for immigration and moving to boarding gate? Thanks in advance!

     

    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 37 minute layover enough to connect from Pasco > Seattle > LAX?

    Hi! First I'd like to say that this is my first time flying. My family and I are planning to go on a trip to Mexico and we're going from Pasco, WA to Seattle then to LAX. the layover time in Seattle is 30 minutes, is that enough for first time flyers? Thank you in advance!

     

    It's enough time but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Pasco is delayed. You will have to hurry.

    Hello All, I have my parents traveling from San Francisco to Dubai via Seattle. They have a layover of 1 hr 20 mins in Seattle. My question is whether their bags will be checked in directly at SFO and clear security, requiring only gate change at Seattle, or will they need to go through check in and security again at Seattle like at Chicago. Thanks in advance for the response!

     

    Addn info: The tickets were booked as one reservation through Emirates, but the domestic flight from SFO to SEA is operated by Alaskan Airlines.

     

    Since they purchased one reservation then their bags will be checked through and they don't have to go through security again. All they have to do is go from their arrival gate in the C, D, or N concourse to their departure gate in the S Concourse using the underground train. They may also have to have their boarding passes reissued at the Emirates gate.

    traveling from lahore via emirates airline. dubai to seattle via emirates . seattle to edmonton by alaskan airlines. i am with a four year child . i have 2:50 hour in seattle. i have two baggage. is this enough good time for clear immigration and claim my baggage or how all this will work?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. In Seattle 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, go through security, and then take the underground train to your departure gate in the C, D, or N concourse. Note that if you are Pakistani citizens you will need a US Transit Visa to make this connection

    Hi, I have a flight from LAS to YYJ with a 47 minute connection in SEA, all with delta airlines. Do you think this is enough time? Will I need to recheck my luggage, and do I clear Canadian customs in Victoria?

     

    You clear Canadian Immigration and Customs in Victoria. You have enough time as long as your flight from Las Vegas is on-time.

    I am transferring from international arrival flight by Delta to domestic flight by Alaska Airline in 1.5 hours will that be enough time to clear immigration, custom and boarding the domestic flight? Are they in 2 different terminals?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation that is barely enough time If it's two separate reservation that's not enough time. Seattle only has one terminal.

    FLYING IN FROM YYC ON ALASKA CONNECTING TO ASIANA TO KOREA WITH 1 HR 20 MIN. DOES ALASKA TRANSFER LUGGAGE OR DO WE COLLECT IT? sorry just realized my caps where on. lol

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be transferred for you and you will have enough time. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim and re-check your bags, making this connection very difficult. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary.

    Hi, I am planning to take a flight from Denver to Vancouver. Most options I get (e.g. Alaska airlines) have a layover of approx 1 hour in SEA (booked on same ticket). Will I need to clear immigration/customs in Denver or Seattle while exiting US ? Will I need to re-check baggage in SEA ? How much time would be sufficient for each of the cases ? Thanks

     

    There is no US immigration or customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. An hour is enough time.

     

    Okay, thanks!

    Do I need to go through security check,how much time is required to reach Alaskan airlines gate to Emirates gate?

     

    No, you do not have to go through security. You should be able to get to the Emirates departure gate in S in less than 15 minutes.

    Arriving in Seattle on Southwest in concourse B and have a 2 hour wait until connecting with Alaska Airline in concourse C. I have to recheck luggage. Will I have enough time?

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to go to the main terminal, claim and re-check your bag, and go through security. If you can do this without a checked bag it would be a LOT easier.

     

    Yes, you should have time to make your plane. It also depends on day of week and time. The airport is not that big and the B gates are pretty close to C gates
