  • Dallas / Washington / Copenhagen
    Jan 27, 2015
    Hello, I'm arriving Dules International at 4 pm on 30 th January from Dallas ( flight SK8789) and need to change to 5.15 pm flight to Copenhagen (SK 752). Is this going to be enough time for non US citizen?


  • Transfer time
    Jan 26, 2015
    Having never flown through Dulles airport will 1 hr 40 mins be enough time to transfer - flight arriving from Dublin flying to Nashville (I clear immigration in Dublin) tks


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. because of pre-clearance, if you purchased tickets together your bags will be transferred automatically and you only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security.


  • Transfer time SK925 to UA3433 (with kids)
    Jan 25, 2015
    We are arriving on Friday 27th of February with SK925 at 3:15pm and would need to continue with flight UA3433 at 5.04pm to BNA. Is 1h49min enough for the transfer? With immigration, customs, etc. And we are travelling with three kids. All help is appreciated. Thanks,


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the International Arrivals building, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and then take the Aerotrain to your departure gate concourse (A, C, or D).


  • DL 2959 from JFK connecting to international flight
    Jan 17, 2015
    I purchased two separate tickets both on Delta. The first is from JFK to IAD (DL 2959) arriving at 14:37. I need to collect my bags and recheck them for the second flight (DL 9385) departing at 18:05 to AMS. Is there enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Note that for your second flight you will need to take your bags to the KLM check-in counter, not the Delta one.


    Oops! I meant arrival of first flight at 16:37 (not 14:37) and needing to connect on a separate ticket at 18:05. Thanks for your prompt response.


    Oh, then that's going to be much more difficult. I suppose it might be possible, but it's essential that the first flight arrive on-time.


  • 55 mins layover from concourse A to concourse C
    Jan 16, 2015
    do I have enough time to connect my next flight? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. A is connected to C by the Aerotrain inside security.


  • Connecting from YYZ to IAD to NRT
    Jan 13, 2015
    I am arriving to IAD from Toronto on United at 11:49 and my next flight to Tokyo is at 12:20. Will that be enough time to connect?


    That is barely enough time. You will go through US Immigration and Customs in Toronto so all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, but 31 minutes leaves very little time to spare in case of delays.


  • SA 207 from JHB / Dakar - connecting to Orlando
    Jan 16, 2015
    I arrive 6.25am on SA 207 and have a connection to Orlando on United at 8.09am, we have to clear passport control, collect bags and re-check the baggage, is this possible and how far do we need to go between gates?


    It's possible. You will arrive in the International Arrivals Building, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, then go through security then take the AeroTrain to Concourse C or D where your flight to Orlando will depart.


    Thanks, is there sufficient time for the baggage to make the connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • very short layover for an cnx on int'l flight today, jan 12
    Jan 12, 2015
    is a 45 minute layover enough to get from gate C27 to gate C4; connecting flight from San Fran to IAD to Munich.


    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk between gates. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.


  • Is the lay-over enough?
    Jan 12, 2015
    I will traveling from Cleveland to Frankfurt via Lufthansa / United Airlines Leave Cleveland at 14.45 arrive at Washington Dulles at 16.10 Flight from Washington to Frankfurt is at 17.15. Is this enough time to catch my next flight? My baggage will be checked directly to FFT. Thanks


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at IAD are connected inside security.


  • Transfer time IAD
    Jan 11, 2015
    I am arrivng from Copenhagen on SK925 on 3.15PM and need to continue to Miami with AA1137 at 5.19PM - leaving me with 2 hrs. Is this enough? Thanks for any feedback :-)


    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? If together that should be plenty of time. If separately you will have to hurry and hope your flight is on-time. If separately, after you clear customs you will have to take your baggage to the AA ticket counter and check it to Miami (and pay a checked bag fee).


  • Transfer from IAD to Paris
    Jan 9, 2015
    I am flying from Chicago to Washington D.C., and I have a layover of 51 minutes for my next flight from IAD to Paris. Will I have to get my bags, and recheck it in and go through customs? If so, will I have enough time with a 51 min layover? My cousin is meeting me in IAD will she be able to hold the plane till I get there?


    If both flights are on United you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time. No your cousin doesn't have authority to hold your flight if you are late.


    Yes, both flights are on United. That is a relief! And I won't have to recheck my bags since its going from domestic to international?


    No, you don't have to recheck your bags.


  • Short transfer from Europe
    Jan 9, 2015
    I'm coming in to IAD on Monday on SK925 arriving 15:15 and transfering to SK3931 to Detroit leaving at 17:20. Will I need to go through IAB or through the Immigration control in C terminal? Will I have enough time to make my connection?Any help is greatly appreciated.


    You will go through US Immigration in the IAB. You have enough time for your connection. You will depart from concourse A. So after you go through security you can take the Aerotrain directly there.


  • Transfer
    Jan 4, 2015
    Do you have to go through security when transferring between the c and d terminal at Dulles?


    No, concourses C and D are just two sides of the same building.


  • Coming from Dubai on way to Toronto
    Jan 4, 2015
    Arrive from Dxb via UA 977 and have to connect to Toronto via UA 5093 Layover was though 1hr05 min. But incoming is delayed by more than an hour. SO what are the options please


    Assuming you don't make the connection, ask to be rebooked on the next flight to Toronto. There is one at 12:28 PM, but it is full. You can try to be rebooked to Toronto connecting in Chicago or Newark or maybe they can transfer you to DC-Reagan airport and book you on another airline there. There is also a 5:05 PM IAD-YYZ flight but it also appears to be full.


    Thanks for this quick reply. Would UA provide staying facility till thy sort our connection to Toronto


  • incoming delayed
