Checking flying Aeroflot flight 104 connecting in IAD to Toronto Air Canada 7377. Is there one terminal in IAD or more? What terminals Aeroflot arrives from Moscow and Air Canada leaves to Toronto, is 2.50 enough connection time? Is there customs/immigration to go through?
Flying Aeroflot 10 connecting in IAD to Toronto Air Canada 7377. What terminals Aeroflot arrives from Moscow and Air Canada leaves to Toronto, is 2.50 enough connection time? Is there customs/immigration to go through?
IAD only has one terminal. When you arrive you will go to the International arrivals building, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then if your bags are tagged to Toronto, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. If you purchased two separate reservations then you will need to take your bags to the Air Canada check-in desk to re-check them first. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you are a Russian citizen you will need a US Transit Visa.
I am arriving to IAD at 7:20 AM from RDU to catch a flight to panama city at 10:00 am. do I have ample time to catch the panama flight knowing that I am arriving domestically and departing in an international flight. Would i have time to check in and pass security on time? Thanks
If both tickets are on the same reservation then you do not have to go through security in IAD on your way to Panama. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Hi, I'm traveling from Barcelona to Seattle with United on July 5th and I'm changing planes at IAD. I only have 70'. Will I have time? Will I need to take any means of transportation to catch the domestic flight?
The same thing will happen on my way back home.
Thank you in advance.
70 minutes is not enough time for an International to domestic connection at IAD, unless the flight from Barcelona is quite early. Everything should be handled in the C/D complex. On your return all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am arriving from Frankfurt at IAD 1325 has to catch the fligght Dettroit at 1735. Want to know if this time is enough to go through migration and security checks.
Yes, that is plenty of time.
Flight UA 4680 from Albany, landing in IAD at 11:36 am. Connecting Flight UA 807 departs at 12:25 pm. Do I have enough time to make the connection? Gates unknown (it's in 2017).
Yes, that should be enough time. With that far off trip your exact arrival and departure times will probably change before then.
I will be arriving to IAD from London Heathrow with 1hr37min to connect to a flight to Cancun. Both flights are through United. If I have no checked bags, is that long enough to go through US customs and immigration and make it for my connecting flight?
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from London is on-time.
Hello,
I'm planning to travel from Brussels to Santa Barbara via IAD and was wondering how much I should keep between connections. I will have a J visa. After arriving at IAD, I'm guessing I have to go through passport control and security check. Will there also be any customs at IAD or only at Santa Barbara?
Yes, in IAD you will also claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check them at the re-check desk. I would want 2 hours between flights in IAD, but 90 minutes is doable if things go smoothly.
I am travelling to Frankfurt using United airlines, travelling with two kids one is 2.5 years old my layover is 1 hr 5 mins. Website says I have to go from terminal D gate 10 to terminal c gate 12 , I am worried will I b able to get the next flight
Sorry forgot to mention, I am travelling from toronto to Washington then from Washington I am going to frankfurt
IAD only has one terminal. C and D are just concourses and are in fact just two sides of the same building. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Flying from Montreal Canada at 6am to Dulles arriving at 750. Flying to Honolulu at 855. Worried about making my flight. Family of four. Do we have to go through security... Will we make our flight.
You will preclear US immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Dulles is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
