  • LHR - IAD - RDU/GSO connection
    Jan 7, 2017
    1
    I've got a Sunday afternoon flight upcoming all through United from London Heathrow, through IAD, and then to RDU (or GSO, but most likely RDU). Got a scheduled layover of 1h 30m, would that be enough to get through customs if I'm not checking/claiming any bags?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We will be arriving on ANA from Narita - but departing on domestic from Terminal D to Orlando (I believe)- how is the process, time and experience of the transfer and immigration? (ATL last trip was a breeze - and very helpful ground staff).

     

    You will arrive and be bussed to the International Arrivals Building where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the AeroTrain or mobile lounge to your departure gate in C or D.

     

  • 1 hour 40 minutes connection time

    I'm considering flying United from London to New Orleans via IAD on a single reservation, but there's only an hour and forty minutes between the scheduled arrival and departure times. Is that enough time to clear immigration, get bags, clear customs, recheck bags, and make the connection?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Connection time from YUL to AUS: 90 min

    Hi, my mother (senior) travels from Montreal YUL to AUS, connecting in IAD, connection time of 90 min. Is it enough time? Does she have to get her luggage and register it again? Does she have to change terminals? She's flying United Airlines on both flights. Thank you

     

    She will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. She won't have to do anything with her bags in IAD. All she has to do in IAD is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate.

    I have to change for Savannah flight on Commutair 65 minutes after landing in IAD. Will this be enough? I am a UK citizen.

     

    So you're flying from IAD to Savannah? Where are you flying into IAD from?

    I fly tomorrow from Montreal to Amsterdam with a stop in Washington. My connection time is 2 hours and I booked both flights together at United Airlines. Is a connection time of 2 hours enough?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal, so all you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I was wondering if 41 min is good enough for me to make the connection at IAD (domestic - international, CVG->IAD->PEK: flight UA6148 -> UA807). What would be the best options for me to get from domestic to international? Any help would be greatly appreciated

     

    That's just enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks ZAP. I guess I'll arrive and depart at the same terminal (Terminal 3) which is in fact Z Gates on terminal map, right?

    Flying from Ottawa to IAD then onto IAH all on United- have 1 hour and 10 min for connection times- okay?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa

     

  • I fly from Toronto by AC, connecting by ANA to Tokyo. Connecting time

    How much connecting time do I need. Will it be in the same terminal?

     

    IAD only has one Terminal. Air Canada will arrive in the Z gates which are attached to the main terminal and ANA will operate from concourse B. You can take the Aerotrain there. An hour should be enough time. You will pre-clear US immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    I'll be flying with United from Ord arriving 15:48 at IAD and flying to Frankfurt Main Germany at 17:25, also on a United flight. Is that enough time to make my flight back to Germany?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Travelling to State College, PA from LHR via IAD

    Hi, I am a British Citizen travelling from LHR to State College PA, via IAD. My flight arrives at IAD at 11.15 and the connection leaves at 12.50. I will have checked luggage. Will there be enough time to make the connecting flight? Thanks!

     

    If both flights are on United that is enough time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi, I am planning to fly from IND to Dublin through Dulles , EI6241 to Dulles from IND and then to Dublin on EI 118 on 27 January. The layover is only 1 hr 05 mins but just wanted to check if that is sufficient time and that my bag can get checked through direct from Indy to Dublin, I am Irish national if that matters re TSA etc... thanks!

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, your bags will be tagged through to IND and all you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin.

    Hello, I travel from YOW to OKC with connection at IAD. I have layover of 1 hour 17 minutes and no checked luggage. Is the connection time enough?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa so in IAD all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    United have sold me a ticket from LHR to IAD arriving 11:20 then IAD to CUN departing 12:30. I would assume United believe this is enough time for a connection, but is it? Also, will I need to collect and recheck my bags or will they be checked at London all the way to Cancun?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. Everything will be in the C/D Concourse. It is possible but everything has to go perfectly.

    Please I have a flight from DFW (11:55) TO IAD (15:51) and after claiming my luggage. Catch up with Virgin Atlantic to (LHR) AT 18:45. Will that be plenty of time for international flight. I don't have the terminals or gate info right now. Thank

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. IAD only has one terminal. What airline are you flying on the first flight?

     

    United airline from DFW

     

    OK, then you just have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, take them up to the departure level, re-check them with Virgin Atlantic, and go through security and to Concourse A. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you so much (i appreciate).
