From A3 to C1 at IAD what is the quickest way to get there?
The AeroTrain.
From gate A2 to gate C3 by walk need how many times
My UA flight from Richmond arrives at IAD 11:18 gate A1 my connection to Beijing leaves at 12:35 gate C5, do I have enough time?

Take the AeroTrain you should have enough time.
We are arriving on South African airways at 6:25 am and then pick up connecting flight on UA departing at 8:20 am. Is 1 hour and 55 minutes enough to make it? We had planned on checking one bag, if that makes a difference. The flights are on a Thursday.
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Appreciate your response...thanks!

I will be flying from Ottawa (Canada) to Dulles IAD at arrival Gate D30, and depart 86 minutes later at Gate D26 to Barcelona.
Are the UA arrival and departure gates in the same building (Concourse D), that I do not need to hurry to a different building (Concourse)?
Yes, your gates are only 2 gates apart from each other.
thank you for your quick reply
We are a Canadian family leaving from Ottawa and arriving at IAD at 4:19pm on Wed. at gate D32. We have checked luggage. Our flight to Geneva leaves at 5:30pm from gate D5. We are travelling on United (both flights) and on one reservation. Do we have enough time? Many thanks!
Yes, you pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa so all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will take less than 5 minutes.
Thanks so much. Very relieved to hear that!

Do we need to pick up our baggage at baggage claim before customs? On which concourse will be arrive? On which concourse will be depart? Thank you.
Yes, in IAD 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 to your departure gate. Everything will be on the C/D concourse. You have enough time.

Hi all - my parents (almost 70 years old) are coming over Christmas from Zurich over Dulles to Denver. I assume they have to go through immigration in Dulles (correct?) and they have a 2hr layover (land from Zurich at 3:15pm and flight to Denver leaves at 5:24pm). All one booking through united website operated by united. Do they have enough time? Thanks so much!
Yes, you are correct. They should have enough time.
Thank you!!
