Hi :) is 48 minutes enough time for a connection in IAD from Greensville, SC to Boston Logan? both flights are on United Airlines
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

I'm flying from San Salvador arriving with Avianca at 20:10.

I have a flight with Turkish to Istanbul at 22:55.

Bag will be checked only to IAD.

Will it be enough time?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

I'm arriving at Dulles at 15:35 on 17th Oct via Air Lingus from Dublin Ireland, and departing at 17:05 via United Airlines to Jacksonville. It's all under a single booking with Aer Lingus. Will this 1h30mins stop over be enough time to catch my next flight?

Also, since I will be pre cleared in Dublin under the ESTA, does this mean I do not have to collect and re check in my baggage? It is my understanding that if this is all under the one booking, the baggage will be interlined?

Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your understanding is correct.
Flying 10/27 with United From Brussels to Denver with a stop in Washington IAD.
(United 591 and United 542). The layover is 1h56. I would like to know if I have to hurry to
be on time. I'm a Belgian, planning to bring a small backpack and suitcase (luggage). Also, before I check in, can I see which gate it is for Denver ?
Yes, that should be enough time. You can look up your departure gate on united.com the day of your flight, but it will be on the C/D concourse.
ZAP : Don’t know if you are one person or a group but your feedback is very helpfull! Thanks a lot!
You're welcome. I'm just one person.
Hi, my flight out of Dulles has been delayed so now it leaves at 6 35pm. My connection flight is in Newark and leaves at 9 pm. Apparently our flight from Dulles gets in at a C gate and my connecting flight is at an A gate. Will I make my connection?
What time does your flight ARRIVE in Newark? Are you talking about a connection in Newark or a connection at IAD? Your question is very confusing.
Hi, Looking to book a flight from London to New Orleans, however connection time is 1hr 35 Mins. Will this be enough?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly and both flights are on United.
Hi I am flying with united to Raleigh via IAD from London on 22 October I will be checking in on line I know I have to go through customs but how do I go about rechecking my luggage for the connecting flight? Do I just put it on another belt? What signs do I have to follow? Also there is a 2h20 min stopover I am guessing this will be enough time? I am returning to London via the reverse of this route the following Friday when I land at IAD do I have to recheck my luggage or will this be simply transferred as it appears that both planes will be on the same concourse. Forgot to mention that the stop over coming back is 1hr15 Sorry for all the questions just never done this before. Thanks Nigel
Yes, you will re-check your bags in Terminal C/D right after you clear customs at a belt. Yes, taht should be enough time. On the return all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.
How long do I need to allow between an incoming domestic flight to departing on an international flight to Paris?? Same question returning from Paris to a domestic flight. Both directions would be a change of airline carriers.
What airlines? If it's two separate airlines on two separate reservations you need at least 2 hours on the way there and 3 hours on the way back.
I am looking at a united flight from Geneva to Denver that flies through IAD. Will 1 hr 10 min be enough time in IAD? I assume I have to go through customs in DC before heading to Denver? I am planning to carry on
With no checked bags that might be barely possible, but it's less than the recommended minimum International to Domestic connection time at IAD of 90 minutes.
Early November I fly from Amsterdam to Dulles and then connect to a domestic flight to Kentucky. My layover is 2hrs5min, if all goes as planned. Is this enough time to get through customs, passport control and re-checking luggage and a bathroom stop without worry of missing my 2nd flight? I'm considering paying the extra for the Premier Access that United offers, which is said to give quicker check-in, exclusive security lanes and priority boarding. Would this be necessary/helpful or useless in a connection situation?
One passenger, US citizen with checked luggage, booked directly through United.
Thanks for any advice.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. Premier Access won't help you with anything for your connection.
