I need to pick up guests arriving all within 1 hour of each other. First party arriving on Southwest, 2nd on AA and 3rd party on Frontier. Will the baggage claim for them be close to each other?
Southwest and Frontier are both on side A of the terminal, but American is on Side B.
Hi I will be arriving from DFW on AA at 10:38 am connecting to Silver to ELH departing at 1:00 pm - separate reservations. Will this pose any problems? thanks!
That should be enough time to claim your bags, re-check them and go through security and to your departure gate.
Hi, We will be arriving in MCO from Recife, Brazil with Azul airline at 5:30pm and flying out with Spirt to DFW at 8:17pm the same day. Is that enough time to clear immigration and catch the flight to DFW?
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Returning to US from Brazil at MCO at 6:15pm. Departing MCO the following day at 7:00am to complete my journey. Can I clear customs and send checked baggage on its way? or do I have to take it with me for the night?
Due to the long layover, you won't be able to re-check your bags until morning.
Got on tram to get to next connecting flight... had 45 minutes between flights ... security at that post told us we had to go through security again! Which we did and missed our connection! Security not helpful at all! Trams poorly marked! Question is why ?????
if you were changing concourses then that likely means you booked two separate reservations. Orlando is not built for this and 45 minutes is not enough time to do so. You should have researched it BEFORE buying the flight.
Flying home from Aruba and have a 3 hour layover in MCO. I arrive in Terminal 2 and would like to hangout in the lounge in Terminal 4 during the stop. Do I need to go thru security again to travel from Terminal 2 and 4 or are they free to travel between the two terminals without going through security again?
Airside 2 and Airside 4 are indeed connected inside a single security checkpoint, so you can go between them.
Hey I've got a flight from MCI with Spirit to FLL with a 55 min layover in MCO. Is this enough time to transfer? I would guess so, but I haven't flown through Orlando.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have a flight from EWR to MCO arriving at 4:30pm, by Spirit, terminal B, Airside: 3, and then to connect in MCO to REC (Recife - Brazil), international flight leaving at 10 pm, by Azul, terminal A. Airside 1. Is it far? Have I enough time to imigration/customers?
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is claim your bags from Spirit, re-check them with Azul, and go through security. You have plenty of time. The Azul check-in desk probably won't open until about 7 PM. Everything you have to do with your bags is all in the same building.
I arrive to MCO at 1:20 pm and have a connecting flight from Mco to Tallahassee with silver airways. Do I have to exit the airport and go to silver airway´s main counter to get my boarding pass or is there a counter inside the MCO airport where I can get my boarding pass without having to re enter?
forgot to say my first flight is with Copa Airlines and that I only have a carryon bag
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, Check in with Silver and then go through security again to access your departure gate.
Hi, I have a flight from ATL to MCO arriving at 8:55pm, and then 1h10min to connect in MCO to GRU (Sao Paulo), international flight leaving at 11:41pm. Is my immigration done in ATL, or if not, is that enough time at MCO to do that? Also, do I need to move from one terminal to another at MCO or every Delta flight arrives and departs from the same terminal?
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on Delta, all you have to do in Orlando is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
