    arriving in IAD on UA, onward to Austria on Austrian 1h 15 min connecting time , is it enough and what terminal will connect flt leave


    Unless you arrive at IAD from a foreign country (in which case you would arrive at Midfield Concourse D & would have to go through passport control, pick up bag, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag, taking 35-50 mins) - you would land via United either separate Midfield Concourses A/B or C/D (at A, B or C gates). Austrian Airlines are using the B gates. On arrival at IAD follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign; international arrivals will board the shuttle to US Customs.


  • 45mn to transfer (Gate A1 to C16) United
    Aug 3, 2012
    I will be arriving from Ottawa With United express at 21:13 Gate A1 to catch the another United flight to Frankfurt at 22:01 Gate C16. Please advice how to connect the fastest way. Do I have enought time? Thank you


    1. At YOW, take advantage of the U.S. customs clearance, saving you time at IAD. 2. Arriving domestic passengers at IAD should follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign. (A gates & C gates are in separate buildings). You have plenty of time.

    I arrive in Dulles on 8/25 on united from Denver at 11:28 am. Will I have time to make my connecting flight to Burlington that leaves on United express at 12:14?


    Domestic flights on United are in Concourses A/B and C/D with A, B & C gates - on arrival, follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; then follow the AeroTrain sign. At A/B it arrives in the center between A & B gates. At C/D is only serves C gates. You have enough time.

    We arrive IAD on United from SFO at 4 PM. Our So. African Airways flt. departs for Johannesburg at 5.40 PM. Is this enough time?


    You arrive at IAD at either Midfield Concourses A/B or C/D, as United uses A, B & C gates for its domestic flights. Your ticket should indicate your arrivals gate (A gates: A15-32; B gates: 535-79; C gates C3-17). A/B and C/D gates are in different buildings. South African Airways uses the B gates. If arriving at A gates walk past the escalator down to the Aerotrain, which divides A/B and on to the B gates. You have plenty of time. If arriving at C gates, you need to go down to the Aerotrain and head for the B gates.


  • Not enough time?

    I am coming in from Denver at 16.36 departing for Madrid At 17.40 on Sept 7th 2012. Can I make it?


    One hour transfer should be enough at IAD. For gate-to-gate transfer I suggest you open, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the text. Your ticket should indicate gate numbers (also make sure that your first airline transfers bags to your second connecting one - not all airlines do, in which case you would have to pick up bags and re-check them in at your connecting airline counter.

    I have a 50 minutes connection between the arrival of my flight from Tampa to catch an international flight to Japan. All flights on United. Is 50 minutes adequate time to make this connection?


    1. IAD has a main terminal and Midfield Concourses, A/B, C/D, all of which are served by United. While A, B & C gates are served by the underground Aerotrain, it does not serve the D gates at present. A & B gates are on either side of the gateway - A gates are A1-32; B gates are B35-79. A1-A6 are for United Express. A walkway connects these concourses to the main terminal. 2. The AeroTrain now connects separately to the A gates A1 to A6, and another one to all B gates. Near gate A6 is the shuttle bus to the D gates. 3. C gates C1-30 & D gates D1-32 are connected by a walkway. Look at your ticket to find your arriving/ departing gate number and transfer accordingly.


  • Connection from IAH to Dublin
    Jul 24, 2012
    I am arriving at IAD on United 1112 at 8:57pm and connecting to Untied 126 to Dubin at 10:02. I would like connection information between terminals and quickest way! Thanks


    At IAD,on arrival, check the overhead screens for your United departure flight to Dublin. (United uses Concourses A, B, C & D with corresponding gates). Then follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign and board the train. A gates A1-32; B gates B35-79; C gates C1-30. Your time should be sufficient. NOTE: On your return, use Dublin Airport's U.S. customs clearance, saving time at IAD.
