  • Toronto - IAD - PDX Security time needed
    Sep 12, 2014
    1
    I'm American and will be returning from Toronto to Portland, OR with a layover and expected security screening in IAD. Will 90 minutes be sufficient to get through security, re-check bags and board home bound flight? Thanks for your help.

     

    Why do you think you will have to re-check bags or go through security screening in IAD? Are you flying Porter from Toronto? Because Toronto YYZ has US Immigration preclearance. What airlines are you flying?

    I am arriving from Ottawa Canada with a 45 minute layover to catch flight to San Diego. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Ottawa. If you arrive in Concourse A it is connected to C/D where you will depart by the AeroTrain and mobile lounge.

     

    Thanks ZAP!

    How long is needed to connect between incoming from Detroit to outgoing to london

     

    What airlines? Were tickets purchased together? If both flights are on United 30 to 40 minutes should be sufficient.

    My mother will be flying from Roissy CDG United 914 and make a connection to Tampa United 1602. I understand she will have to go thru immigr and customs, but will she have to leave the security zone for connection and reenter thru TSA again. She is 84 and absolutely paniqued by the idea that she won't go thru her beloved Atlanta airport this time. can you tell me what will be her itinerary in Dulles

     

    Yes, she will have to go through security again after she re-checks her bags with United after clearing customs. However, she will be in a separate facility in the basement of the D concourse so there's no way for her to get lost, she just has to follow the signs for connecting passengers and she will go through security.

     

    Thank you ZAP. I have printed the airport map for her and I will be following her on the phone when she arrives

    Is 1 hour between terminal c to a enough time to connect?

     

    IAD only has one terminal A and C are just concourses (gate areas). Yes, that should be plenty of time. A and C are connected inside security by the Aerotrain.

     

  • I am coming into IAD from Roanoke to connect to Turkish Airlines IST

    Is 2hrs 54 mins enough connection time ?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will arrive in concourse A and depart from concourse B, which are connected directly. If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be checked through to IST in Roanoke and you won't have to do anything with your bags at IAD.

     

    Many thanks for speedy reply. I know how long it took arriving from South Africa and was worried that the same would happen on the way out.

    On United, from San Francisco, arriving Dulles 4:10 & departing for Paris 5:20. Is 1 hr. 10 min. enough time? Am U.S. citizen, wife is Japanese, do I pass through immigration in D.C. or in Paris? Does immigration take much time?

     

    You will go through Schengen Immigration when you get to Paris. You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be on the C/D concourse.

    Forgot to mention in previous request that I will be with a person who has a back problem and cant walk long distances in one go and am wondering if I can request and who do I ask for a wheelchair upon his arrival in IAD.

     

    You need to contact your airline BEFORE your flight to request the wheelchair.

    I will arrive fromj Buffalo on United Express (Mesa Air) and going on Brussels Airline to Brussels out of concourse B. Will I have to go through security again?

     

    No, The C/D concourse where you will arrive and B where you will depart are connected inside security by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge.

    I'm flying via Saudia Airlines from Riyadh to IAD, then catching a connecting flight to Detroit via Delta Airlines. I booked the ticket for the entire flight through Saudia Airlines. Do I have to go through customs and claim my baggage in IAD before connecting to Detroit?

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags in IAD, then you will go through security and take the Aerotrain to your departure gate on Concourse B.

    booked with expressjet airlines and united express, connecting time is 1hr 10 mins at IAD (Whashington, DC Dules), Do I need to go through security again? Where to find my flight arrival & departure terminal?

     

    IAD only has one terminal. United and United Express use concourses A, C, and D. A is connected to C and D inside security by the mobile lounge and aerotrain.

     

  • Near-Crazy BOS->IAD to IAD-> NRT Connection Time
    Aug 8, 2014

    Hello. UA originally booked me with only a 64-minute connection for BOS->IAD->NRT to start an award vacation. The "legal" minimum is 45 minutes. Yes, it was barely a "legal" connection, but requires my 1st flight arrive at the gate early or exactly on time. Not something one counts on for morning BOS->IAD flights. There is one earlier flight almost 4 hours earlier at the ungodly hour of 5:50a, creating almost a 5-hour IAD layover! Based on some online comments months back, I rebooked to that flight since there are no later UA NRT flights if the connection is missed, esp. on an FC reward. The 5:50a equipment has been upgraded, thereby slightly increasing the layover, so now I'm reconsidering. Unfortunately, there's no sleeping area in the IAD GlobalFirst Lounge! Thoughts and advice? Thank you!

    I AM ARRIVING ON SAA FLITE FROM JOHANNESBURG INTO WASHINGTON IAD AT 06H35 AND THEN DEPARTING ON PORTER AIRLINES PD 720 FOR TORONTO DEPARTNG AT 09H00 THESE ARE TWO SEPRATE TICKETS DO I HAVE ENOUGH CONNECTING TIME? CAN I BOOK THE BAGGAGE STRAIGHT THROUGH TO TORONTO OR DO I HAVE TO COLLECT MY BAGGAGE AND GO THROUGH PASSPORT CONTROL AND RECHECK MY BAGGAGE IN AGAIN? PLEASE ADVISE? THANKS

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. No, you cannot book your baggage straight through. You will have to claim it, go through Customs, then take your baggage to the departure level to check it with Porter.

    Scheduled to arrive at IAD on Virgin Atlantic from LHR at 2:50 pm, if no delays, and depart on a United flight to SAN at 5:15 pm. Supposed to have priority baggage handling, but that might mean nothing. Also have global entry. Is this enough time to clear customs, re-check bags and make SAN flight connection? Thanks.f

     

    Yes, I think that will be enough time.
