I will be flying from SEATAC to Tucson with a stop in PDX via Alaska. The time to make the connection is 46 minutes. The Is that enough? The inbound flight lands at 11:19 and the outbound leaves at 12:05. Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you.
I am flying in on Hawaiian Airlines and need to get to Alaska Airlines for connecting flight. How much time should I leave myself between flights? I haven't booked my Alaska Air flight yet.
Thank you
If you have checked bags I would want at least 2 hours. With no checked bags, 60-75 minutes is sufficient if you check in online for your Alaska flight.
Hello, I am flying in May from LAX to PDX then to NRT. I’m scheduled to arrive PDX at 11:20 am and next flight to NRT is 11:58am which is only a 38min layover... is that doable? Will I need to go through security again at PDX?
You do not have to go through security again in PDX. If both flights are on the same reservation and the first flight is on-time that connection is possible.
I will be arriving from Montana on Horizon, and transferring to Condor to Germany. Do I need to retrieve my luggage and go through TSA before I board Condor?
If it's all one reservation you can go directly to your departure gate.
Thanks! That's a relief...
My parents are in their 80's and are flying to Hawaii in a couple of weeks. They are arriving on Alaska Air and flying to Honolulu on Hawaiian Airlines. It looks like they will need to get from the South Terminal to the North Terminal (Gate D is Hawaiian I think?). They are stubborn and not seasoned flyers. Can I schedule an in-airport shuttle to pick them up and get them to their gate? I'm sure they can make it but I just don't want it to be stressful for them.
Portland only has one Terminal. Are you confusing Portland and Seattle? If they have checked bags they'll have to leave security to claim their bags, re-check them with Hawaiian and go back through security.
I realize it’s one building but has two sides. If my parents land on a gate in the south side (Alaska Air) then take off from a gate on the north side (Hawaiian Air) I just wanted to know if there was a way to help them get there more easily. If the distance is small enough, maybe it’s not an issue.
arriving at pdx 3/1/2018 745 am from phx connecting flight leaves at 835 am to anchorage Alaska both flights are with Alaska airlines less than 1 hr to get to connecting flight don't know layout of pdx airport does anyone know if that is enough time have 3yr old in tow
Yes, that should be enough time. PDX isn't a very large airport.
Has Alaska/Horizon been moved to Concourse E? 13yo flying, don't want him to have to move concourses to connect.
I am flying from San Francisco on Icelandair operated by Alaska Airlines and transferring to an Icelandair flight from Portland to Keflavik airport in Iceland. A schedule change reduced the connection time in Portland to 40 minutes. Is this enough time or do I need to change my itinerary.
That's enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi, I'm flying from Boise, Idaho to Portland and on to Kansas City, Mo. I only have a 45 minute time lap between flights. Where do I make my connecting flight?
Just follow signs from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi I am flying from Boston to Portland and then on to Medford, Oregon. I am on Alaska Airlines and then on an Alaskan Airlines flight that is operated by Horizon Airlines to Medford...any one know which terminal I will arrive at and depart from at PDX? I will have a checked bag...I was told this is a connection that I could make...
Portland has only one terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
You'll likely arrive in Concourse C, and will have to walk to Concourse A (not a long walk at all).
