  • 1hr 37min international connection with US visitor visa
    Jun 29, 2016
    I will be arriving to IAD from London Heathrow with 1hr37min to connect to a flight to Cancun. Both flights are through United. If I have no checked bags, is that long enough to go through US customs and immigration and make it for my connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from London is on-time.


  • Brussels to IAD to Santa Barbara
    Jun 29, 2016
    Hello, I'm planning to travel from Brussels to Santa Barbara via IAD and was wondering how much I should keep between connections. I will have a J visa. After arriving at IAD, I'm guessing I have to go through passport control and security check. Will there also be any customs at IAD or only at Santa Barbara?


    Yes, in IAD you will also claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check them at the re-check desk. I would want 2 hours between flights in IAD, but 90 minutes is doable if things go smoothly.


  • In between terminals

    I am travelling to Frankfurt using United airlines, travelling with two kids one is 2.5 years old my layover is 1 hr 5 mins. Website says I have to go from terminal D gate 10 to terminal c gate 12 , I am worried will I b able to get the next flight


    Sorry forgot to mention, I am travelling from toronto to Washington then from Washington I am going to frankfurt


    IAD only has one terminal. C and D are just concourses and are in fact just two sides of the same building. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Flying from Montreal Canada at 6am to Dulles arriving at 750. Flying to Honolulu at 855. Worried about making my flight. Family of four. Do we have to go through security... Will we make our flight.


    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Dulles is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I'm departing from Columbus Ohio and arriving IAD to catch Munich flight.I will only have 1 hour and 35 minute to get in to Munich flight.My ticket is with UA and one reservation. I don't know since I will have the TSA in Columbus, do I have to take TSA again or check in procedures all over again? Can I go straight to my international gate?


    You do not have to go through security or check in again in Dulles. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • International connection

    I am flying from Pittsburgh to Dulles and then Frankfurt Germany. My flight arrives in Dulles at 846 and departs for Germany at 10:10. Both flights on United. Will I have to go through security at Dulles? Will this allow enough time to board? I will precheck 24 hrs before departing.


    No, you don't have to go through security in Dulles. You should have enough time.


    Thank you!


  • Scandinavia Air what terminal/concourse?
    Jun 27, 2016
    I'm flying in today at 4:15 and have a tight connection now due to cancelled flight this morning. I can't find anywhere online for Scandanavia Airlines (star alliance with United) for a gate number


    Scandinavian Airlines uses concourse B.


  • Changing plane from SFO to Rome on United
    Jun 26, 2016
    I am flying United from SFO to IAD and then connecting on a United flight to Rome. I have 1 hour 50 minutes to do this. I am concerned because flights from SFO are often delayed. About how long should it take me to get from my arrival gate to international departure gate (both United)? Will they likely be in the same terminal?


    Dulles only has one terminal. Both gates will be in the C/D concourse. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to get between gates.

    I am arriving at a gate on delta and depart at a gate from United. How far apart are they. Is an hour and 10 minutes enough time to make connection


    If you have no checked bags and are already checked in for your United flight that is enough time. All gates are connected inside security by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge. Delta uses concourse B, mainline United flights use concourse C and D, and United Express flights use A, C, and D.

  • Concourse A to D Time?
    Jun 22, 2016
    Is 56 minutes enough time to make it from Concourse A to Concourse D? This would be a domestic flight coming into IAD at about 7:20am and international departing IAD at about 8:20am. .


    Yes, that should be enough time.

  • Connecting International Flight to International Flight
    Jun 17, 2016
    Hello, I am planning on arriving from ICN (Korea) to IAD (Dulles) arriving at Dulles at 11:20 AM through Korean Air. I'm wondering if the direct international connection from IAD to Cancun through United departing at 12:27 PM (on the same day) is a feasible option. My confusion is whether I need to go through the US Customs when I enter IAD through ICN to make another international connection. Note that Flights will be booked separately, and I can have someone else check-in for me, if needed. All baggage will be Cary-on Only. Please advise...


    No, that is not possible. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, go through US Customs, then go to the United check-in counter, and go through security and to your departure gate. Someone else cannot check in for you.
