  • I fly from Toronto by AC, connecting by ANA to Tokyo. Connecting time

    How much connecting time do I need. Will it be in the same terminal?

     

    IAD only has one Terminal. Air Canada will arrive in the Z gates which are attached to the main terminal and ANA will operate from concourse B. You can take the Aerotrain there. An hour should be enough time. You will pre-clear US immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    I'll be flying with United from Ord arriving 15:48 at IAD and flying to Frankfurt Main Germany at 17:25, also on a United flight. Is that enough time to make my flight back to Germany?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Travelling to State College, PA from LHR via IAD

    Hi, I am a British Citizen travelling from LHR to State College PA, via IAD. My flight arrives at IAD at 11.15 and the connection leaves at 12.50. I will have checked luggage. Will there be enough time to make the connecting flight? Thanks!

     

    If both flights are on United that is enough time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi, I am planning to fly from IND to Dublin through Dulles , EI6241 to Dulles from IND and then to Dublin on EI 118 on 27 January. The layover is only 1 hr 05 mins but just wanted to check if that is sufficient time and that my bag can get checked through direct from Indy to Dublin, I am Irish national if that matters re TSA etc... thanks!

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, your bags will be tagged through to IND and all you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin.

    Hello, I travel from YOW to OKC with connection at IAD. I have layover of 1 hour 17 minutes and no checked luggage. Is the connection time enough?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa so in IAD all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    United have sold me a ticket from LHR to IAD arriving 11:20 then IAD to CUN departing 12:30. I would assume United believe this is enough time for a connection, but is it? Also, will I need to collect and recheck my bags or will they be checked at London all the way to Cancun?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. Everything will be in the C/D Concourse. It is possible but everything has to go perfectly.

    Please I have a flight from DFW (11:55) TO IAD (15:51) and after claiming my luggage. Catch up with Virgin Atlantic to (LHR) AT 18:45. Will that be plenty of time for international flight. I don't have the terminals or gate info right now. Thank

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. IAD only has one terminal. What airline are you flying on the first flight?

     

    United airline from DFW

     

    OK, then you just have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, take them up to the departure level, re-check them with Virgin Atlantic, and go through security and to Concourse A. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you so much (i appreciate).

    Hi. I am traveling from Dubai to Toronto and am considering option of transit in IAD with 3 hours. It's a single ticket and sky scanner doesn't say that it's self transfer. Do I need to cross immigration and US customs?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    i will be flying in at 6:30 pm on icelandair from reykajvik and have a 8:04 pm flight on American to miami .. will that be enough time?

     

    With checked bags that's not enough time. Without checked bags that's just enough time if the IcelandAir flight is on-time and you check in for your AA flight online before leaving Iceland.

    IAD only has one terminal. You will arrive in United. It will arrive in Concourse C or D where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in A, C, or D. If you have to go to A it is connected to C and D by a shuttle bus and the AeroTrain inside security.

     

    Also, you should have enough time.

    I am connecting from LHR-IAD to IAD-YOW. Does 1h15 give me enough time?

     

    No, that is below the recommended international to International connection time in IAD. It might be barely possible though if you don't check any bags.

     

  • Is 35min connection time enough?

    I am coming via Saudia to IAD on Dec 16 at 12:20 pm and want to get AA or United at 12:55 to Columbus Ohio with connection time of 35min. Will I be able to make it?

     

    AA does not fly from IAD to Columbus. The minimum International to domestic connection time when traveling on two separate itineraries is about 3 hours, so no, that is not even remotely possible.

    Yes, that's possible. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
