We are arriving on Spirit from Myrtle Beach at Terminal 4 gate g13. We have 40 minutes for out flight Leaving for Cancun from gate f4 in terminal 3. Will that be enough time and do we have to go through security again? Should not need to do customs until Cancun, correct? Thanks
You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi!. There is a flight Im planning to buy from, BOG to Paris with a layover on FLL. It says i have 3:10 mins to catch the next flight but since isn't a proper 'connection', I have to do checkin again with Norwegian airlines in order to go to Paris.

Im arriving at terminal 4H (jetblue) and i have to be at terminal 3E(Norwegian), if i have 3:10 mins, is it enough time to go through customs, pick my luggage and do a checkin dropping my luggages again with Norwegian airlines?. The checkin at Norwegian has to be done at least 45 in advance.

I'm to torn since I have to do this checkin again and go through customs. Anyone has an idea if its feasible?

Thanks so much!
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Bogota is on-time.
I am thinking about booking a flight from EYW to LGB with an hour connection in FLL. It will be Silver Airlines from EYW to FLL. And then change to Jetblue. According to the map those are 2 different terminals. Does it mean I will have to go through the check point again? If so, will I have enough time? Thank you!
Yes, you have to go through security again. I don't know if you will have enough time because you didn't post how much time you have.
We are flying in to FLL from Chicago on Spirit, with a connection through Spirit to Costa Rica. There is only about an hour and a half between landing and take-off. Do we have to go through security again? What is the process since the second leg is an international flight?
All you have to do on your way to Costa Rica is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Thank you!
How far are these 2 airlines from each other
They are close. JetBlue uses Terminals 3 and 4 and Spirit uses Terminal 4. They are connected.
We are arriving at FLL @09:00pm on a saturday with Norwegian Airlines. Our plan is to make the connecting flight to Managua @11:40pm with Spirit Airlines.
We have checked in luggage. Will this be sufficient time for making the connection ?
That will be really difficult. Everything will have to go perfectly.
My question is: We are arriving at Fort Lauderdale International Airport on a Delta flight at 4:32 pm and departing on Bahama Air at 6:40 pm. Our travel agent says that Bahama Air and Delta do not have a baggage agreement, so we will have to get our baggage at the baggage claim area and check them again at Bahama Air before the next flight. Does this mean we will have to go through security again after waiting for all of the baggage? If this is the case will we have enough to time to make our connection to the next flight in a different terminal? The airport terminal map also looks like the terminals do not connect to each other, is there a transport?
Yes, it means you have to go through security again. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Yes, you have to change terminals. It's best to just walk.
Thank you, we'll hope everything goes smoothly and there are not delays.
When flying into FLL from MBJ, how much time should be allotted for customs and immigration if I plan to fly from FLL to ATL on separate tickets? I would be flying January 10, 2018 and arriving in FLL around 1:30pm.

I would want 3 hours between flights.
Canadian citizen arriving from Freeport Bahamas on Bahamasair (was T3 now T1?) - connecting to Air Canada T2... will only be "in transit" to Canada. Is there a sterile internal connection route to avoid officially "landing" in the US?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Freeport, so your arrival into Fort Lauderdale is like a domestic flight.

I am traveling from LAX to POS with a 4 hour layover in FLL, all on Jetblue. I saw some LAX flights arrive at Concourse E and well POS departs from concourse F. My question is are concourse E & F connected inside or would I have to go through security again?

Thank you.
Yes, they are connected. You have plenty of time.
Thank you very much.
