Hi. On my return from Europe I have a connecting flight in IAD. I land at 15:25 and my flight to Charleston departs at 17:05. Is this enough time to clear customs and find my new gate? For what it's worth I'm flying United Airlines (although the flight from IAD to CHS if Mesa Airlines) and likely will only have carry on bags.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
How does one get from Terminal D (United) to Terminal B (Scandanavian)
D and B are concourses, not terminals. They are connected by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge. http://www.flydulles.com/iad/aerotrain-washington-dulles-international-airport
what is the minimum connecting time between domestic United flight to International Austrian air?
Around 60 minutes is sufficient if both flights are on the same reservation.
End of july we'll take plane from BRU to SFO with transfer at IAD. Both flights are one ticket. Two different carriers but in partnership. Two questions:
1/ in BRU they confirmed luggage will be immediately checked in for SFO. We will not see them at IAD. Is that correct because everywhere I read this is not possible when arriving in USA;
2/ arrival and new departure at IAD are 12:55 and 15:31 respectively. Is that realistic ?
Thanks
Whoever you talked to at BRU is wrong. in IAD you will claim your bags to take them through US Customs, then re-check them at the re-check desk. You should have plenty of time.
I have a flight into IAD with a layover of just 1 hour, departing to NRT (Tokyo). Both flights were booked through United Airlines, although one is operated by MESA and the other Nippon. Will I be able to make my connecting flight?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will be traveling from Atlanta on a united express Mesa airlines flight arriving in IAD with an hour layover to my connecting united flight to Paris. Will an hour be enough to make this connection.
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thank you for your quick response. Is it possible that you can tell me what terminal Mesa United Express usually arrives at?
IAD only has one terminal. Mesa usually uses gates in concourses C and D.
I will be flying from NRT, Tokyo to Washington Dulles Airport with a 1 hour 30 min layover to Charlotte, NC leaving from Terminal A. Will this be enough time to clear customs and immigrations to catch my flight to Charlotte?
IAD does not have a Terminal A. Are both flights on the same reservation? What airlines are you flying?
My flight times were changed and now we have only a 40 minute layover for an international flight. Arriving d15 and leaving c4. If our domestic flight is on time, can we make it? Do we just walk (rather run) between D and C? Thanks
Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I have a United flight from Europe, with a 2 hour connection time for a flight going on to Newark. On the return, the connection from Newark to the Europe flight is 1 hour 8 minutes. United will let me book it online, but will this give enough time for passport control, customs, security, etc.?
Yes, that is enough time. On the way back to Europe all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I arrive Gate A4 fro Detroit at 8.56PM and my flight to London from Gate C4 at 9.50. Will I be able to make it? How much time it will take to go to Gate C4 from A4?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
