  • process for customs and connecting to domestic flight
    Mar 1, 2016
    going from cdg to sea then on to hnl on delta. 1 1/2 hr layover. what is the process of going through customs then on to board flight to hnl. do they give boarding pass for the hnl portion when checking in at cdg?


    Yes, you should get both boarding passes at CDG. In Seattle you will arrive, 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 to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.

    Yes, that should be enough time with carry on only. You will go through US Immigration and Customs and security and then take the underground trains to your departure concourse.

    On Your way to Vancouver you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Vancouver. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.

    Will be arriving Seattle (Horizon/Alaska) concourse C2. Will be departing from D concourse (Alaska Air. Will 30-40 min be enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if it is delayed.


  • Flying from Seattle to San Francisco
    Nov 22, 2015
    Hi! I am an Australian citizen and currently residing in Vancouver, BC. I am planning to drive to Seattle and take a plane from Seattle to get to San Francisco. I have an ESTA. Is this plan possible? Will I run into problems with customs and immigration at any of these airports?


    There should be no issue. You won't have to go through immigration or customs at the airports because your flight is domestic. You will go through US Immigration at the road border on your way to Seattle. You will just have to show your passport to go through security at the airport.

    Arriving sea 13.11 with dl2044 from lax . . . Change to dl142 to ams etd 14.23. Doable? Which gates?


    You will arrive in A or S and depart from S. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security. You should have enough time if your flight from LAX is on-time.

    I am arriving from Vancouver on Air Canada at 12:16 on 21st Oct. I have a connecting flight to Frankfurt at 13:40 same day. Do I have to go through immigration, do I have to collect my bag, do I have enough time to transfer, what terminal do I depart from?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do is take the underground train from your arrival gate in Concourse A to your departure gate in the S Satellite. You do not have to go through security.

    I am a canadian travelling alaska from hawaii to canada via seattle. Is 40 min enough connection time? Will i need to collect my luggage? Tnx!


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your flight is late and you miss your connection Alaska has very frequent flights from Seattle to Vancouver.


  • What to do in layover time
    Dec 10, 2014
    Hi, I have 5hour layover at SEA before i take emirates to dubai. I will be fying from SLC in Alaska airlines. What is the best way I can spend my time. Can i leave the airport after checking my baggage and go sight seeing at seattle for about 3 hours.


    The Emirates check-in counter will probably not open until about 3 hours before your flight, so you will not be able to check your bags when you arrive. It takes 45 minutes each way to get from the airport to any sights you would want to see, so you would have very little time to see anything.


    Thanks ZAP. That was useful.
