  • Enough time for a connecting flight?
    Jun 16, 2016
    I have a flight from JFK arriving at IAD at 2:14pm on a sunday. My international connecting flight leaves at 6:30pm on a separate reservation (& different airline). Is this enough time to collect bags, exit arrivals, and recheck in bags at Departures, go through security etc, including any likely delays? Thanks


    That should be enough time.

    I'm flying from Montréal to Mexico DF with United, Originally my connection was at Chicago but my flight was cancelled and I've been only offered a flight with a 50 minutes connection at Washington Dulles... I have checked baggage. Will it be enough time? Thanks!


    Sorry didn't mention I'm not Canadian but Spanish, so I have to process a ESTA. And just checked that Montreal was badly written...


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time as long as the first flight is on-time.

    Is 1hr 50 mins enough time to go from LHR to IAD with connection to CLE. United moved my flight and airport I originally had. I will have checked baggage.


    Yes, that should be just about enough time.

    Im Flying from Toronto landing on Washington DC at 7:38 am. Is 1 hr enough time to catch my 10:40 am flight From DC to Mexico City?


    If both flights are on United that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. 7:38 to 10:40 is 3 hours, not 1.


    I arrive at 9:38 am and my next fly departs at 10;40 am. Both are with United. Thank you :)

    I am flying from Barcelona to Toronto and then to Dulles, landing at 8:52 pm. I then have to make a flight to Charlotte at 10:05 pm. Will that be enough time? Flights into and out of IAD are United and all flights are on one ticket. Thanks!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    I am traveling from Paris to IAD to South America. Is three hours enough time to go through immigration, customs, security, etc., at IAD, and catch a flight to South America?


    Connections, yes, that should be enough time.

    We are flying United on July 6th from Indianapolis to Dulles and connection to a United flight to London UK. We have 52 minutes to get from out inbound flight to our outbound flight. Is this enough time to clear customs, security and make it to our conection flight?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US and you don't have to go through security either. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Arriving 3:45pm on a Friday on a flight from Tokyo. U.S. citizen with no checked bags. How long is needed to get through customs and out the front door of the terminal? Trying to determine if I can catch a bus into DC in time to catch a ride home or if I need to make other arrangements.


    I imagine you'll probably be out by 4:30 if your flight is on-time.


  • Need to check check connection time sufficient or not.

    I am coming from Atlanta to Washington D.C. at Gate A5 on 5th Jun, And need to Catch a connecting flight for Frankfurt at Gate C1. And in between time is 45 min. Would that be sufficient. I don't have to checking baggage.


    It's possible, but leaves no time to spare.


    I'm just wondering how this went for you! I have a similar situation on Tuesday (C2 to A2) and 47 minutes to make my connection.

    We arrive on June 2 on United at Dulles at 4:11. We connect to Aer Lingus, departing at 5:20. Do we have to clear any further security or can we just go to the gate. Have bags and boarding passes for Aer Lingus.


    You can just go directly to your departure gate if your bags are tagged through to Aer Lingus.

    Hello, do you think 1:40 is enough time to land from Tokyo, clear customs, go through security again and catch a flight to Ottawa? It's a Sunday afternoon and I have no checked luggage. Thanks!!!


    Yes, that should be just about enough time.

    We are flying with United from Orlando connecting at IAD with a flight to Manchester UK, with a stopover time of 2 hours 27 mins. Is this enough time?


    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D concourse.

    I will be flying from Vienna to Seattle with a 1:10 hr connection at IAD. Will that be enough time to clear customs and make it to my flight to Seattle?


    I forgot to mention that the flight is actually Vienna to Brussels, then an United flight from Brussels to IAD, then IAD to Seattle, all on the same ticket.


    No, that is 20 minutes shorter than the minimum international to domestic connection time at IAD. However, with no checked bags It wouldn't necessarily be impossible.

    We have a flight from San Antonio (United) connection time of 1hr 3min to Vienna (Austrian). Will we have sufficient time to make the connection?


    Austrian flight 94 is at B49. only took us 15 minutes to get thru security...


    Thank you.


    You won't even have to go through security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
