I have a 4:35pm flight from CLT and an 1hr 40min layover for my connecting flight in April will I make it? I have a 6:35am flight from Seattle in April with a connecting flight in MDW with an 2hr 25min Connection/
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in MDW is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All Southwest gates are connected inside security.
I'm flying to MDW on Porter Airlines from Toronto, arriving at 4:10 pm on a Thursday. I have to catch a Southwest flight at 5:50. Do I have time to clear customs, get my bag, get to the SWA gate, and recheck the bag?
Make sure you clear U.S. Customs at Toronto Airport - saving you time at MDW. What you need to do: Find out from Porter Airlines if they transfer your bags to your connecting Southwest flight. If not, you need on arrival at MDW go down to the baggage claim, pick up your bag & re-check it in with Southwest Airlines. Note that the passenger terminal has Concourses A, B & C. -Porter uses A gates, Southwest uses C gates. You have sufficient time.
If I'm flying in on Southwest, arriving at 7:45AM, and the connecting Southwest flight is at 8:25AM on a Thursday - is that enough time to get from one gate to the other?
At Midway Airport, Southwest uses both Concourses A & B with corresponding gates. You may have to walk to another concourse - look at your ticket & on arrival at MDW at overhead screens to see which gate you depart from. Either way you have enough time.
