I will be flying from LHR to GRU via IAD,
will I re-check my luggage at Dulles? I had to do this travelling GRU to LHR at O'Hare.
The reason for my question is regarding liquids and duty free. If I purchase a 200ml perfume in London Do I transfer this to my checking luggage at Dulles, will I be able to take it in hand luggage or will it be confiscated?
Yes, in IAD you will have to 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. Yes, you will have to put the perfume in your checked bag in Dulles.
Hi, is 2 hours 15 minutes enough time to make a domestic to international connection at IAD, on different airlines (Delta for the domestic, Air France for the intl)? I will have to check my bags. Thanks
Sorry, didn't look like my original question had posted. Sorry for the repost.
Hi, I will be taking a domestic flight to IAD and connecting to an international flight to Paris on different airlines. Not sure of gates yet but it looks like the time between flights (assuming everything is on time) is about 2 hours 15 minutes. I will probably have to check my bags. Will I have enough time to claim my bags, then recheck in and go through security in that time frame? Thank you
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? I Assume your flights are on Delta and Air France? If so and both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Can we walk this quickly? 55 min connection IF we land on time. thanks for any help
Take the AeroTrain or Mobile Lounge. You should have enough time.
1:07 layover. Fastest way to get from D to B40?
Take the Aerotrain or mobile lounge. If the first flight is domestic you should have enough time.

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!
