    Traveling from DTW to Paris, FRA via IAD. Traveling with EXPRESSJET DBA DELTA CONNECTION from DTW to IAD, then Air france from IAD to Paris. 1 hour 30 minutes connection time. Is that enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time and terminal change?
    Sep 1, 2016
    I am flying with Lufthansa, but it's operated by United. I have a connecting flight through IAD. I will be flying in from Charlotte and going to Manchester. I have a three hour layover in IAD. Is that enough time? And will I have to change terminals?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. IAD only has one terminal.


    Thank you! I forgot it's concourses. Do you know if I'll have to take the aero train or shuttle to change concourses?


    You probably won't have to. You depart from C/D and most flights from Charlotte arrive in C/D.


    Alright! Thanks again!

    Hi. I am flying from Cmh to iAd with United airlines and have a connection flight going to west Africa with delta. I booked two separate flights local and internationally. Is it far from where I pick my luggage from United arrival to delta international flight checking area? What transportation mean can I use?


    Delta does not fly international flights from IAD. Please double check your reservation.


    The reservation says operated by air France please reply


    OK, so you will just go to the main terminal, claim your bags from United, then go up to the departure level, re-check your bags with Air France and then go through security and to your departure gate in A or B on the AirTrain.

    IAD only has one terminal. You will arrive in Concourse A and depart from Concourse C or D. You can take the Aerotrain or mobile lounge.


  • Flying to Copenhagen, connecting at IAD
    Aug 31, 2016
    My husband and I are flying from LAX to Copenhagen and connecting through IAD on United and Scandanavian Airlines. We have 2 hours between flights. Will we have to pick up bags and re-check in for the international portion? And are the terminals close together? I worry that the 2 hours we have between flights is going to be too tight


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time. IAD only has one terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The concourses are connected by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge.


  • IAD DL1230 --> UA989 (layover 65 minutes)
    Aug 30, 2016
    Hi I am traveling from Atlanta to IAD with DL1230 (1th of October 2016) and have a layover of 65 minuten to UA989. I made 2 differnt bookings. Delta changed their timetable and I am not sure about the 65 minutes. Thanks for your support


    I do have luggage to check-in from Nassau to Frankfurt and I do have a German passport.


    If you purchased two separate bookings Delta will not check your bags through to Frankfurt. You will have to claim your bags at IAD and re-check, making this connection impossible.

    I'm flying in from Norfolk, VA to IAD, which arrives at A2E, and my connecting flight is at the C gates to London, how do I get from the A gates to C gates?


    The Aerotrain or the mobile lounge. Follow the signs.


  • TSA precheck at concourse C?
    Aug 29, 2016
    Arriving on international flights after immigration and recheck of bag, we then have to clear security. Why is there no TSA pre-check offered at that checkpoint?


    Because simply not enough people pass through that checkpoint to justify it and because there probably isn't room.

    Arriving from Brussels (Belgium citizen) at 2:30pm on Sept 9 on United Airlines 951. The UA 560 flight to SFO leaves at 3:49 pm. Is a 1 hour & 19 min connection enough time for customs and baggage recheck-in?


    Realistically that will be very difficult unless your flight from Brussels arrives early, but United has other flights to SFO you can likely be rebooked on.

  • Arriving from Europe

    My daughter is traveling from South Africa to Amsterdam and picking up a connecting flight to IAD (KLM/Delta). She then is to board an AA flight from IAD to LAX. She has approximately 1 1/4 hours between her arrival in IAD and the departure to LAX. Is that enough time? What is the procedure when she arrives at IAD with respect to customs and baggage transfer? Thanks


    That is not enough time. In IAD she will be taken to the International arrivals building, go through US Immigration, and claim her bags, she then has to go to the departures level, re-check her bags with American and go through security and to her departure gate. She needs about another hour to make this connection at IAD.

    That should be just enough time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, through security and to your departure gate.
