Have 1 hour connection time in Dallas on outbound and return. Enough time to clear customs both directions?
You don't have to go through Customs in DFW EITHER way! There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Customs in Toronto. On the way back you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do both ways is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Thank you! We have global entry cards so I was pretty sure we would be okay on the return. Appreciate the quick response!
We are flying into DFW from London Heathrow and have a 90 minute turnaround before flying out again on to Cancun, Mexico. Is this realistically enough time to tackle all baggage/immigration/security issues before departing??
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi Iam flying into Dallas on Qantas at 13.00. I have a flight booked with AA at 14.55 to Detroit. I understand that I will have to go through immigration and customs etc,before checking my bags on the AA flight. Will there be enough time to make the connection given the extra security measures currently in place?
There are no extra security measures currently in place. Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are planning a Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale and looking at some flight options to get there from Vancouver, Canada. It seems the easiest and least expensive is through DFW but a few of the options only leave a 50 minute window for connections is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver.
I'm travelling to Maui, Hawaii from Toronto with 1.5hr stop in Dallas with American Airline (First Class). Do I have to find my luggage in Dallas and do the check in again? or does it get sent to Maui directly? Thanks
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to change terminals the Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security.
