  • Will I make it
    Jun 24, 2016
    I have 40 mins to change flights between gate A6 and C8. Will I make it?


  • Concourse A to D Time?
    Jun 22, 2016
    Is 56 minutes enough time to make it from Concourse A to Concourse D? This would be a domestic flight coming into IAD at about 7:20am and international departing IAD at about 8:20am. .


    Yes, that should be enough time.

  • Connecting International Flight to International Flight
    Jun 17, 2016
    Hello, I am planning on arriving from ICN (Korea) to IAD (Dulles) arriving at Dulles at 11:20 AM through Korean Air. I'm wondering if the direct international connection from IAD to Cancun through United departing at 12:27 PM (on the same day) is a feasible option. My confusion is whether I need to go through the US Customs when I enter IAD through ICN to make another international connection. Note that Flights will be booked separately, and I can have someone else check-in for me, if needed. All baggage will be Cary-on Only. Please advise...


    No, that is not possible. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, go through US Customs, then go to the United check-in counter, and go through security and to your departure gate. Someone else cannot check in for you.


  • Are 2 hours enough from international to Domestic (with imigrant Visa)
    Jun 17, 2016
    Dear all, I will be flying to IAD from Brussels and then to Jacksonville Florida. Are 2 hours enough time to get through the whole process in IAD. Important to mention that I have an immigrant Visa. Thanks in advance. Best regards. Fares.


    What i gather from someone who has been through for an immirant process, it takes long, and you may need a loner time other than the 2 hours


    2 Hours should be enough time as long as both tickets are on the same reservation.


    Hello Once again, more info about my ticket. It will be reserved with United A. and the time in IAD will be 2 hours 45 minutes (Arrival at 02:20 PM in IAD). I guess it should be then enough to get through the immigration process and then catch the flight to JAX. Thanks in advance for your input. Regards.


  • How much time do i need for transit from a domestic to Internation fli
    Jun 17, 2016
    Dear IAD, I have an inward flight from Dallas FW on 11th July at 16:13, and an outward International flight to Brussels, whose last Check in time is given as 16:20. That implies i have only 8 minutes to transit. Is this time adequate for me to change flights? Would appreciate your advice


    What airline are you flying to IAD? Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


    I am flying Messa Airlines into IAD, and yes both tickets are on the same reservation.


    Then you don't need to check in again in IAD. You will be checked in for both flights at DFW. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time for a connecting flight?
    Jun 16, 2016
    I have a flight from JFK arriving at IAD at 2:14pm on a sunday. My international connecting flight leaves at 6:30pm on a separate reservation (& different airline). Is this enough time to collect bags, exit arrivals, and recheck in bags at Departures, go through security etc, including any likely delays? Thanks


    That should be enough time.

    I'm flying from Montréal to Mexico DF with United, Originally my connection was at Chicago but my flight was cancelled and I've been only offered a flight with a 50 minutes connection at Washington Dulles... I have checked baggage. Will it be enough time? Thanks!


    Sorry didn't mention I'm not Canadian but Spanish, so I have to process a ESTA. And just checked that Montreal was badly written...


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time as long as the first flight is on-time.


  • enough time?
    Jun 7, 2016
    Is 1hr 50 mins enough time to go from LHR to IAD with connection to CLE. United moved my flight and airport I originally had. I will have checked baggage.


    Yes, that should be just about enough time.

    Im Flying from Toronto landing on Washington DC at 7:38 am. Is 1 hr enough time to catch my 10:40 am flight From DC to Mexico City?


    If both flights are on United that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. 7:38 to 10:40 is 3 hours, not 1.


    I arrive at 9:38 am and my next fly departs at 10;40 am. Both are with United. Thank you :)


  • Short Connection

    I am flying from Barcelona to Toronto and then to Dulles, landing at 8:52 pm. I then have to make a flight to Charlotte at 10:05 pm. Will that be enough time? Flights into and out of IAD are United and all flights are on one ticket. Thanks!


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


    I am traveling from Paris to IAD to South America. Is three hours enough time to go through immigration, customs, security, etc., at IAD, and catch a flight to South America?


    Connections, yes, that should be enough time.


  • Is it enough time?

    We are flying United on July 6th from Indianapolis to Dulles and connection to a United flight to London UK. We have 52 minutes to get from out inbound flight to our outbound flight. Is this enough time to clear customs, security and make it to our conection flight?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US and you don't have to go through security either. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection time needed to ground transport
    Jun 2, 2016
    Arriving 3:45pm on a Friday on a flight from Tokyo. U.S. citizen with no checked bags. How long is needed to get through customs and out the front door of the terminal? Trying to determine if I can catch a bus into DC in time to catch a ride home or if I need to make other arrangements.


    I imagine you'll probably be out by 4:30 if your flight is on-time.


  • Need to check check connection time sufficient or not.
    Jun 5, 2016
    I am coming from Atlanta to Washington D.C. at Gate A5 on 5th Jun, And need to Catch a connecting flight for Frankfurt at Gate C1. And in between time is 45 min. Would that be sufficient. I don't have to checking baggage.


    It's possible, but leaves no time to spare.


    I'm just wondering how this went for you! I have a similar situation on Tuesday (C2 to A2) and 47 minutes to make my connection.

    We arrive on June 2 on United at Dulles at 4:11. We connect to Aer Lingus, departing at 5:20. Do we have to clear any further security or can we just go to the gate. Have bags and boarding passes for Aer Lingus.


    You can just go directly to your departure gate if your bags are tagged through to Aer Lingus.
