  • Transfer from United to Lufthansa

    I am flying into IAD on united changing planes to get on a lufthansa flight. Will i have to get my bag and then recheck into Lufthansa? Or will my bag automatically be transferred over?

     

    You need to contact United to find out whether they will transfer your bags to Lufthansa - if not, you need to claim your bags on arrival & take them to the Lufthansa check-in counter. (Lufthansa is in Concourse B).

    I am flying in from Indianapolis arriving at 16:10 with UA 3536 and need to get an international flight to Frankfurt (UA 916) leaving at 17:15. Is one hour and five minutes enough for the connection? Thanks for information

     

    1. United uses Midfield Concourses A, B, C & D (with corresponding gates) Your ticket or the overhead screen on arrival will indicate your connecting Concourse & gate number. 2. Arriving passengers need to follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign, which runs in a continuous loop from the main terminal's post-security area to the center of the midfield concourses A/B and C/D, takes minutes, but presently does not serve the D gates; it can be used for the following gates: A1-32, B35-79, and C1-30. The Mobile Lounge shutttle from Main Terminal or A gates will take you to gates D1-32 gates. Either way, you have enough time.

    United uses Concourses A, B & C with corresponding gates. Lufthansa is in Concourse B. The Aerotrain connects in the center A/B & C/D midfield concourses. You have enough time. On arrival at IAD, follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign;

    I have two seperate tickets - IST to IAD with Turkish Airlines (arrival time 5:45 pm) and IAD to SFO with Virgin America (departure time 8:35 pm). Do you think I can make the transfer within 2hr 50 min ? Thank you!

     

    All international arrivals at IAD Airport are being transported to the International Arrivals Building at the west end of the main terminal for TSA clearance. You need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance, and in your case (2 separate tickets) re-check-in your bag at Virgin America counter on arrivals level. (Also you may need a new boarding pass). Your connecting flight is with Virgin America at Midfield Concourse A , which can be reached on foot from the main terminal. You have plenty of time.

    I have flight 231 ORD-IAD with United connected to flight 94 IAD-VIE with Austrian. I have only 1:30 time between flights. Please help me to navigate across an airport.

     

    On arrival at IAD, follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign, which runs in a continuous loop from the main terminal's post-security area to the center of the midfield concourses A/B and C/D, and takes minutes; it can be used for the following gates: A1-32, B35-79, and C1-30.

    We have booked a flight with UA 101 on Sat Oct 6th arriving 15.08. We then connect to JAX flight UA3448 at 16.51. Would you please help us to navigate across the airport for this flight. The connection time of 1.43hrs now sounds tight. Please could you advise us. Thank you.

     

    1. On arrival at IAD at the International Midfield Concourse D - follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'- international arrivals will board the shuttle to US Customs at the International Arrivals Building located at the west end of the main terminal for TSA clearance: there you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - & if transferring to another flight re-check-in bags (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). Thereafter, International arrivals who continue their journey cannot use the AeroTrain, but need to take the shuttle bus to their connecting gate - signs will guide you. United uses domestic Midfield Concourses A, B & C (gates A1-32, B35-79; C1-30. Your ticket & on arrival at IAD the overhead screens will give you the connecting flight details.

    Can you get the Aerotrain from the A gates to Terminal C? Have a very tight connection in Sept and airport directions are very confusing.

     

    At IAD, The underground Aerotrain runs in a continuous loop from the main terminal's post-security area to the center of the midfield concourses A/B and C/D, takes minutes, but presently does not serve the D gates; it can be used for gates: A1-32, B35-79, and C1-30.
