We will be arriving from Costa Rica and have a 2 hr 7 min layover in DFW. Is that enough time to go through customs, etc., before our flight to Tucson?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I’m coming from Hong Kong and fly to MIA, how long take me immigration and I have security again??
Yes, in DFW 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 take the Skylink train to your departure gate. I recommend at least 2 hours for a connection like this.
arriving A-20 leaving from D-37 how long will it take me to make this connection?
You can take the Skylink train between any two gates inside security. 45 minutes or so is sufficient.
Hi,
We are US citizens traveling to Vancouver via layover in DFW. We are also a party of 12--6 kids (one in a wheelchair with medical devices and 3 more with medical notes to carry meds and liquids on board) and 6 adults. Will we have to pick up our checked luggage and go through customs and security again? We have 1 hr and 40 minutes between flights on the way back. (over two hours on the way there) . Thanks so much for your help!
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If your first flight is domestic all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security by the Skylink train.
