Hi, Arriving IAD at 8 pm and next flight to Boston is 10:30 p m on the same ticket on United. I have a non US passport so will need to go through Immigration. Is the time sufficient. Travelling first time to US on Visitor Visa.
Just found out that our initial flight has been delayed - we now have ~ 2 hours to connect in IAD with checked bags - all flights are through United. Will this be enough time given that the second leg is international? Arrival in IAD is noted as Gate D5 - but I have no indication where departure will be. I know some airports make you exit and go back through security - not sure if that is the case in IAD.
Yes, that is plenty of time. You will not have to go through security again.
Hi, I'm getting ready to fly from MSP on the 11th into IAD for a connecting flight to CLT. I have a 35 minute connection on mesa united express, for both my legs. Is 35 minutes enough time to get from gate to gate? Will I be near my gate for my flight to charlotte once I land in IAD? I'm freaking out because I've never flew into this airport and I've heard it's confusing so please help!!!
Yes, that should be enough time. It's likely both gates will be near each other. IAD is not particularly confusing.
I am arriving in DC in the afternoon from South Carolina and flying out to Amsterdam the next morning. Do I have to collect my bags at Dulles or can I just check them straight through from SC and they hold them overnight?
You will have to collect your bags at Dulles. However, please double check your reservation, as there are no flights from Dulles to Amsterdam that leave in the morning.
I'm travelling with a french passeport from Montreal to Mexico. United Airline. One checked bag. 55 minute connection in Washington. I'm stressed about if I will be enough time and about the customs process in IAD? Thanks in advance for your help.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I fly out of Orlando with United Airlines, land in IAD and have a 35 minute layover until my international flight to London. Please tell me this is enough time. All on United Airlines and I only have carry-on luggage.
That is enough time if the flight from Orlando is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D Concourse.
