    I have the same problem but, will my checked luggage go there? Also will the connecting flights signs take me there or should I know where to go from a map? Thank you so much! And thank you to whomever wrote this question!

     

    I should add that it is all on United so I should be in the same terminal (C).

    Hi, I'm flying from Paris to IAD with a connection of 2 hours and then a connecting flight to Charlotte, NC at 5:00. I know that it's enough time, however I am confused because I will have checked bags and have to go through immigration but will it be in the International Immigrations Building or the Federal Inspections Building in Terminal C.?

     

    if you are flying United you will go through US Immigration and customs in Concourse C.

     

    I have the same problem but, will my checked luggage go there? Also will the connecting flights signs take me there or should I know where to go from a map? Thank you so much! And thank you to whomever wrote this question!

     

    Yes, if you are connecting your baggage will be at the baggage claim in Concourse C immigration. There will be signs showing you where to go. No maps show the Concourse C immigration facility for some reason.

    I pre-clear customs in Ottawa, and arrive IAD 16h21 on United. I think at Gates A. On a separate ticket for SAA 210 departing at 17h40. I think Gates B. Is there enough time? I can travel with only carry-on baggage.

     

    With carry-ons only this should be possible if the Ottawa flight is on-time. It wouldn't be possible with checked bags.

    Hi, Im flying from Manchester (UK) to Seattle with Lufthansa on April 30th, and changing at IAD where I have about 1 hour to catch my connecting flight. Do I need to collect my backage and re-check it in? And do I need to change terminals? Thanks in advance.

     

    1 hour is not a legal International to domestic connection time at IAD. You need to contact whoever booked that ticket and request a different connection.

     

    Thanks for responding. It's 1hr 10 minutes to make the connection, but I shall contact Lufthansa re changing my domestic flight.

     

    Note that both flights are operated by United and that's why they probably don't know the correct minimums at IAD.

     

    Just to be clear, what is the minimum time allowed for connecting flights? Thanks again.

     

    90 minutes

    Hi I am looking at getting a flight from RDU that leaves at 10:14 am with an 11:19 am arrival into IAD. From there I will be traveling to Beijing PEK airport. I am worried because there is only 1 hour and six minutes between the flight. Is that enough time? Or more importantly is it common for flights from RDU to IAD to be delayed?

     

    IAD is not a delay prone airport. You should have plenty of time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D concourse.

    We will be flying home from Vienna in late March. Flight from vie to iAd with Austrian airlines. Then flight from iAd to okc with United airlines. We have 1 hour and 50 min is that enough time?What is the procedure coming from international to domestic? Can you provide step by step process? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in the B gates and be transferred 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, then go through security and take the AeroTrain or mobile lounge to your departure gate in A, C, or D. you have enough time.

    Hi I am coming from Denver to terminal D and have to get a plane in terminal B 55 minutes later is that even possible?

     

    D and B are just concourses, not Terminals. They are connected inside security by the mobile lounge. Yes, it is possible.

    I am flying into IAD from Cleveland on my way to Dublin Ireland in March, I have one hr and 30 minutes, is that enough time between flights and will I have to change terminals ? Thank you.

     

    IAD only has one terminal. If both flights are on United all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on C/D concourse.

     

    Yes both are on United, thank you !

    Hi, I will be traveling from Denver to IAD airport on the 11 of March this year. However, I have a connection flight from IAD to Zurich with only 54 minutes layover. My question is do I need to get my luggage an then do check in again for my flight to Zurich and is 54 minutes enough?

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage as long as both tickets are on the same reservation. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

  • Time and Confusion-- IAD Terminals

    Hello, this will mark my first time traveling through IAD Washington-- I am flying on Sunday, February 14, arriving from Burlington, VT and catching a connecting flight to Munich in Washington. I am flying United, arriving in Gate D10 and departing at Gate C1, with only 50 minutes to catch my connecting flight. I'm a rather anxious traveler-- not the flying, but crowd/airport anxiety--- and am wondering if I will have the amount of time needed to get between gates smoothly? Any advice or feedback would be most welcome.

     

    C and D are just two sides of the same building, all connected inside security. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to walk from D10 to C1.

     

    Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. I have looked at the airport map for IAD, but cannot really gauge how far the trek between C and D terminal, from one end to the other is, so thank you for taking the time to explain. I'm sure I'll rely heavily on United personnel for some hand-holding, since when the anxiety takes hold I become a stammering idiot. Thank you for your explanation-- deeply appreciated.

    I have a 1 HR 10 connection between flights both on United. Will I have to collect my bags between flights and will I have to deal with customs. I'm nervous about having enough time?!

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk. 1 hr 10 minutes is well below the minimum international to domestic connection time and is only sufficient if everything goes absolutely perfectly.

    Hi I am flying from Providence arriving in Dulles at 11.45am, to connect to a flight due to fly out of Dulles to Newark at 12.38, is this enough time, then connecting flight from Newark at 19.50hrs to Glasgow.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Dulles is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
