  • transfer to Japan

    I will fly from Ottawa to Japan via IAD in mid August. The flight will arrive at IAD at 11:34 and the flight to japan will depart at 12:46. Will the time enough for transfer? do I need to claim the bag? Both flights are on the same reservation.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

  • Connection between Z and A concourses at IAD

    I am traveling from Montreal to Paris via IAD. This requires a terminal change from Z (arrival from Montreal) to A (departure to Paris). 1. What is the quickest way to make the connection? 2. Do I need to go through passport control and/or customs at IAD? Many thanks

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations? What airline are you flying to Paris?

     

    They are two different reservations: Air Canada to IAD and Air France to Paris.

     

    OK, so you will still clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal, but you will have to claim your bags, re-check them with Air France, and go through security. If you don't have checked bags and you are able to check in online for your Air France flight then you can go straight to your Air France departure gate on the AeroTrain.

     

    Many thanks! That's very useful information

     

  • Connecting from AA flight to SAS flight - recheck bag?

    I am flying from Charlotte NC to Copenhagen via Dulles IAD. When my American Airlines flight arrives in Dulles will I have to claim my bag and take and recheck to SAS? If I gook the flights using Expedia I think they are on the same reservation? But I don't think AA and SAS are partner airlines so not sure if AA in Charlotte can check my bag through to Copenhagen or if I have to claim it and recheck it?

     

    If they are on the same reservation then American should be able to check your bag through to Copenhagen and issue your SAS boarding pass. If they check your bag through but can't issue the boarding pass you can go directly to the SAS gate and get it there.

    I am traveling from Buffalo to Copenhagen in June on United Express and SAS. I have 2 hours layover in Dulles. Sounds like enough time, but will I have to claim and recheck baggage between the flights (and hence go through security in Dulles)? Thanks

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Traveling to IAD from IAH with a 1,5hr layover. Switching from United to Lufthansa, but all flights on one reservation. Will I have to pick up/re-check luggage and IAD

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in DC on your way to Munich. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Aerotrain and mobile lounges connect the concourses inside security.

    Hi, my husband and i have a united flight from houston to dulles this week with a 36 minute connection before flying out to Munich. Is this enough time? Are the bags going to make it on? Any advice is appreciated

     

    That is enough time if the flight from Houston is on-time but obviously leaves no time to spare.

    Two of us are flying on United from Hartford CT, connecting at Washington, and then flying on to Cancun Mexico. Both flights will be on United, and we will be checking two bags. Right now there is an hour and a half layover. 1. Is this enough time? 2. When do our passports get checked/do we need to go through security again for 2nd leg of trip? 3. Do we need to do anything with our bags or will they automatically get transferred to the 2nd plane?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in IAD on your way to Cancun is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no special security for International flights and there is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

  • Is Concourse D connected to main terminal?

    Wondering because I cannot find a good map, does Concourse D connect to the main terminal or have a close exit? Going from YOW to IAD and continuing onto TPA. Smoker and wondering where I can go! Flying United Airlines

     

    Concourse D is connected to the main Terminal by the Mobile lounges or you can walk to C and take the Aerotrain.
