Thanks in advance! Arriving to FLL from PIT at 930 am via Jetblue. No checked bags, looking to find the fastest way from Jetblue terminal to the Silver airways terminal to make our 1040 am flight to Key west.
My wife and I have TSA precheck but others in our group do not.

The fastest way is to just run along the sidewalk from T3 to T1 and go through security.
I am arriving with United Airlines at 13.42 from Houston (flight from Trinidad-Houston-Fort Lauderdale)and connecting flight with Norwegian Air to London Gatwick at 16.35. Do I have enough time between flights? I have checked baggage. Do I have to go through immigration connecting flights? And does it makes any different if having only hand luggage?
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from Terminal 1 where you arrive to Terminal 3 where you depart, check in with Norwegian, and go through security. You have enough time.
Thanks for your reply. Can I clarify that I am flying from Trinidad and Tobago to FLL with stopover in Houston. So I am basically arriving to US. So where do I have to go through customs or do you say that I dont have to do it at all? I have travelled via NYC before where I had to go through immigration when connecting flight. So I am a little confused. Thanks.

You will go through all the immigration procedures in Houston.
We are arriving this Friday at FLL at noon and will depart on a Silver Airlines flight (booked thru United} at 2:05 pm. We will have checked luggage. I assume we pick up check luggage and then have to go thru security again. Will we have enough time? Thanks
Our Silver Airways flight is to Key West
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am returning to FLL from a trip to Barbados. I arrive on Jetblue @ 10:37 AM-terminal 4 and will need to get to terminal 2 to catch a Delta flight to Chicago @ 12:55. Do I have enough time between flights? Can I walk from terminal 4 to terminal 2 & will I need to go through security again? I will have carry-on bags only. Thanks for your help
Will be right as you will have to go through immigration and customs in FLL. Try to get global entry or at least the mobile passport app to speed your entry to the US. You can walk between terminals but there is a bus shuttle that transports passengers between terminals.
I'm traveling from Atlanta, GA to Bogota, Colombia in July. I'm looking at flights with Spirit Airlines, and I noticed all their flights to Bogota have a 55-minute layover. I would be flying from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale, FL and then Fort Lauderdale to Bogota.
Is 55-minute layover cutting it too short? I'm a bit worried about missing the flight because I noticed they only have one flight to Bogota per day.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in FLL on the way to Bogota is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am flying in to FLL from Austin arriving at 1:35 and then have another connecting flight from FLL to the Bahamas taking off at 2:10. If there are no delays, will I have time to make it to my connecting flight?
Yes, that is enough time but it leaves no time to spare.
