  • Connection Time
    Apr 4, 2016
    I will be arriving in to IAD on Delta from ATL (domestic) on one reservation and then have two hours to connect to my second reservation which is an international flight on Emirates. Is two hours sufficient to go from the domestic terminal to international? We will have to recheck bags. Thanks!


    That's barely enough time if your flight from Atlanta arrives on-time.


  • Terminal D to A united
    Apr 4, 2016
    Hi all- I'll be returning to ALB from TPA through IAD at the end of the month, and I expect my flight will arrive in terminal D and my connection to ALB will depart from terminal A. I see there is an AirTrain from C to A, but the map also shows a shuttle directly from D to A. I only have a 47 minute layover, so I want to get to terminal A as quickly as possible since I'm on the last flight out of IAD that night.


    A, B, C, and D are concourses not terminals. If you do arrive in A. I do suggest taking the mobile lounge direct from D to A. However, if you arrive in C then take the Aerotrain. Also be aware that your Albany flight could depart from C or D.

    I am flying on May10, arriving via Mesa(doing business as UA) and then flying regular UA to Paris. The layover is 84 minutes. Will I need to change concourses and go through security again? Is this enough time?


    Both flights should be on C/D. You do not have to go through security. You should have plenty of time.

    We are flying into Dulles from Cleveland. Our coneection to St Thomas USVI is 50 minutes. According to our itinerary we arrive at concourse A and depart from Concourse C. Is that enough time to make our connection? We are flying United on a small Bombardier


    Both flights will be on C/D. You should have enough time.

    I am flying Las Vegas to Copenhagen through IAD, coming on United and leaving on SAS with 1h28min transfer time. Is that enogh time. Tnx


    Yes, that should be enough time. The Aerotrain and Mobile Lounge connect concourses inside security.

    My daughter be flying home from Amsterdam in July. Flight from AMS to IAD with KLM Airlines (arrives 3:55 pm). Then flight from IAD to DUJ with Silver Airlines (departs 5:30 pm). So she has 1 hour and 35 mins. I trust this shoud be do-able? She has been through IAD before.


    Is it one reservation or two separate ones. If it's two separate ones I don't think this is enough time. Note that Silver Airways flights are frequently delayed and canceled.


    2 separate reservations


    Yes, then I don't think that would be possible.

    I am flying from Austin to JHB -leaving from DC at 17:40 .will arriving from Austin at 1540 be enough time for the connection ?


    Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation that is enough time.


    It's 2 seperate reservations will that mean I check in again for international part ?

    Hi, I am travelling from Doha to Charlotte NC via Dulles and will land in Dulles at 3:20 PM. Will I have sufficient time to catch a flight on American Airlines to Charlotte. I am flying in on Qatar Airways


    I don't know if you have sufficient time because you didn't post when your flight to Charlotte departs.

    I am a british citizen flying in from san juan in puerto rico. my connecting flight for durham nc has a 33minute window before jumping on ,y next flight. will this be enough or too short? thanks


    should note hear that airport l change at is Washington dulles


    It's possible. Both flights will likely be on the C/D Concourse. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if your flight from San Juan is delayed. All you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • United
    Mar 26, 2016
    How often are the United flights in the same concourses? I am flying in May and only only have an hour layover so I was curious. I'd like to be able to get a bite to eat but don't know how close I'd be taking it.


    All United mainline and some United Express flights (including all flights on CRJ-700's and Embraer E-175's) are on the C/D concourse. Some United Express flights using the ERJ-145 and Dash-8 use the A concourse.


    Thanks for the info. I am on a ERJ on the way in when I have a layover in Newark but it's a CRJ for the layover in Dulles. That makes me feel better that they are probably in the same place at an unfamiliar airport. I've been to Newark once. Need to check out there map soon.

    roughly the time it takes to get from gate a5c to gate d8 have a 1hr and 5 minute layover am I ggod


    That should be enough time. You have to take the AeroTrain or mobile lounge. I guess it would probably take about 20 minutes.


  • Mexico City to Montreal connection
    Mar 23, 2016
    Hi ! I'm landing in IAD at 3:10pm on a Wednesday, my connecting to Montreal is leaving at 5:05pm, which leaves me with 1:55 of time for the connection. I have heard that mid-day waiting time at the customs can be as long as 90 minutes. Do you think I will be able to make my connection ? (I'm a Canadian citizen with a Canadian passport)


    I forgot to mention, both flights are on United


    Yes, I think you will probably have enough time.


  • Albany to Toronto layover
    Mar 23, 2016
    I am flying in from Albany to catch a flight to Toronto but only have 50min from landing to take off. Is this possible?


    Note that it's not landing to take-off. It's gate arrival to gate departure. Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Albany is on-time. All gates at IAD are connected inside security.
