  • RDU -> IAD -> GVA

    We're flying from RDU to IAD and have 1:05 hr before the flight to Geneva leaves. Is that enough time, do we stay in the same terminal?

     

    IAD only has one terminal and all gates are connected inside security. You will depart from the C/D concourse and could arrive in C/D or A. If you arrive in A, you can take the Aerotrain or mobile lounge to your departure concourse. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • DC to Montreal - 43 Minute connection

    I am flying into IAD and arrive at 4:22 PM. I have 43 minutes to catch my flight to Montreal, which departs at 5:05 PM. I am doing carry-on only. Will I have enough time to make my flight to Montreal?

     

    If your first flight is domestic, it's doable, but difficult. All gates at IAD are connected inside security.

     

    My first flight is domestic, but when I get to IAD I'll be flying into Canada. Do you know if United is all in one terminal?

    I'm flying Toronto to Dubai, via Dulles with a 58 minute layover to change planes in Dulles. Is that enough time to make the connection? What happens if the flight from Toronto is delayed? I am stressed about not making it back to work on time.

     

    all the flights are on United

     

    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If you miss your flight you will be put on the flight to Dubai the next day. There are no other flights out that night to that part of the world.

     

  • LHR to Orlando and Orlando to LHR connections

    Hi, Does the following schedule allow enough time for transfers? I'm a bit concerned that both are cutting it a bit fine? United: Heathrow via Houston to Orlando UA 5 07APR LHR-IAH 1340 1800 UA 1580 07APR IAH-MCO 1933 2247 United: Orlando via Washington to Heathrow UA 1106 10APR MCO-IAD 1858 2110 UA 924 07APR IAD-LHR 2155 #1020

     

    Both connections leave enough time. In Houston you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security and to your departure gate, which will likely be in Terminal C. In Washington all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in the C/D concourse.

    Im flying from London Heathrow into IAD on a connecting flight to Orlando, What is the procedure When landing in IAD, Will I have to pick up my bags and check in again?

     

    Assuming both flights are on United, you will arrive in the C/D concourse, go through US Immigration in the facility there, then claim your bags, go through US Customs, then go through security and to your departure gate which will also be in the C/D concourse.

    I will be flying from YUL to IAD and then HNL on United for all flights. The connection time between IAD and HNL is 1h10. Is it enough? I will have checked-in bags. Do I have to claim bags and re-checked in again? I guess that custom will be pre-cleared at YUL, am I right?

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your first flight is on-time you should have plenty of time.

    What's happen if I missed my connection saying that the immigration/custom takes too long? I'm flying from Canada and need to change plane in IAD. I will be flying with United for all flights. Is United will re-booked without fees?

     

    Yes, if you miss your connection due to immigration delays you will be rebooked without a change fee on the next available flight. However, note that when coming from most places in Canada you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada.

    I was wondering where I will have to clear security and customs if I begin my journey in Columbus, flying to Heathrow via Washington? I only have an hour stopover time in Washington and I'm concerned i could get held up at customs or security?

     

    You do not go through US Customs or Security when leaving the US. All you have to do in Washington on your way to London is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am arriving from Toronto (I believe we are pre-screened at YYZ so we arrive as a domestic passenger) and have a connecting flight to HNL (Honolulu) within 85 minutes of arriving at IAD. Is this connection time to tight? We are flying with United and noticed most of their connection flights to HNL were right tight in time.

     

    That should be plenty of time. You will pre-clear everything in Toronto so all you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You may arrive in concourse A. It is connected to concourse C or D where you will depart by the AeroTrain and Mobile Lounge, which run inside security.

    Hi there I've never flown into IAD before and my connection time from IAD to Duabi is only 1:15 mins I don't have checked luggage is this enough time? I'm so worried that my arrival and departure gates will be in different terminals/concourses

     

    IAD only has one Terminal. All gates are connected inside security. Worst case is you will have to take a short shuttle or train ride to concourse C/D where your flight to Dubai will depart (assuming you are flying United to Dubai). You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

     

  • Layover from YOW to SJU, and SJU to YYZ
    Mar 5, 2015

    Hello, I'm about to book a flight from YOW to SJU (YOW to IAD (UA3375) then IAD to SJU (UA1202)) and the return is from SJU to YYZ (SJU to IAD (UA1722), then IAD to YYZ (UA3371). The two trips have an one hour and 51 min layover, respective. I'm not sure whether this is enough time (given the flights are all on time). Are you able to help verify whether the gate to SJU in IAD is in a close enough area, that I could make the flight? Or is it cutting it too close? Any help is greatly appreciated!

     

    That should be possible. On your way to SJU you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. You may have to take a short shuttle or train ride from concourse A where you may arrive to concourse C or D where you will depart. All gates at IAD are connected inside security You have enough time both ways if your flights are on-time.

     

    Thank you so much!!! Here's hoping it all goes well :)

    I don't know the first thing about this airport. I am arriving from Buffalo ny to IAD at 4:19 and then my international flight to Dakar, Senegal leaves at 5:40. Will 1.5 hours be enough time to get to where I need to go?

     

    Yes, if you purchased your tickets together your baggage will be transferred and you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at IAD are connected inside security.

     

    Thank you so much! I appreciate it!

    I'll fly on UA632 from ORD arrive IAD at 11:39am, not sure which terminal, probably B12. Then my flight to PEK (UA807) leaves @ 12:40pm. Do I have enough time for connection?

     

    ORD-IAD will arrive in the C or D concourse. UA807 will depart from the same concourses. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks so much!
