What is the fastest route from Terminal C to Terminal A
The Skylink Train
Hi! We have less than an hour between flights. Our domestic flight AA372 arrives at 3:43 pm. I believe that's terminal C. Our departing international flight AA36 leaves at 4:40 pm. I believe that's from terminal A. Is that enough time to make the connection? Do I have the correct terminals?Thanks in advance!
You will Arrive in A or C and depart from D. The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you! I wasn't sure if we had to go back through security.
Do you have to collect luggage and go back through security for domestic flights when changing terminals or will baggage be transferred and we use he internal train.
If it's two domestic flights on the same reservation your bags are transferred for you. Just take the Skylink Train to your departure gate.
We are travelling home from Guadalajara to Toronto with a stop over in Dallas (March 2018) We have done this transfer many times and I always make sure I book with 3 a three hour layover. We just got a notice our times have changed we have 1 hour 32 mins I am not happy. We do have Nexus which helps but will we have enough time?
If we were in Houston we know we wouldn't make it.
With Nexus I think it's possible if the flight from Guadalajara is on-time.
Will 1 hour be enough to make a terminal change for domestic lights?
Yes, that Skylink train connects all gates and terminals inside security.
I have a very tight connection through Dallas- coming from BMH and flying to LA. I land at 11:42am at B44 and my flight 12:25pm flight to LAX boards at 11:55am at A38. How long is the walk between B and A?? Thank you!
You can take the Skylink train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thanks. Bad weather and plane was diverted so I missed connections x2 but would have made it if flight was on time :)
I am traveling on AA from Ft Myers to Cabo with connecting flight in DFW. They have changed flight and only 54 minutes between flights. Is this enough time if all goes right? And will bags go all the way thru? All flights are on AA
Yes, your bags will go straight through on the way to Cabo. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink Train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thanks you ZAP
first time flying into dallas from phx on AA connecting on BA flight to heathrow one hour 15 minutes later. Do i need to collect my checked baggage or just go straight to my gate which will be in terminal D (arriving in terminal C) ? Thanks
If all flights are on the same reservation you just have to go to your departure gate on the Skylink Train.
I will not have any claimed baggage and I'm flying from Seoul to DFW and I have connecting flight to a domestic flight to Chicago ORD. Do I have to go out after custom and immigration, and then need to get through security check again to get my flight? I will fly with AA and the connecting flight is AA, too. Also, I got global entry (KTN). Thanks in advance,
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, customs, then go through security and to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
Thanks a lot! :-)
Hey everyone. I am travelling from Singapore to Orlando for a holiday trip with my boyfriend in the US AirForce. This is my first time travelling to US and Im a little nervous about it.

My flight would be : SIN(singapore) to NRT (narita, tokyo)-> NRT to DFW--> DFW to MCO Orlando. The transiting time for both is : 2hours 10 mins.

I would like to know if there is sufficient time for me to catch the connecting domestic flight from DFW to MCO? Do i have to claim and re-check my bags at DFW?
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 on the Skylink train. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
thank you!
both flights from NRT to DFW and DFW to MCO are operated by American Airlines btw.
