I am arriving at Seattle from San Diego through Alaska airlines and need to get on to International Flight to Dubai through Emirates Airlines. Do I have to change from domestic to international terminal? I have only 1 hr and 30 mins layover.
Seattle doesn't have multiple terminals. If your bags are checked through to Dubai then all you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate in C, D, or N to your departure gate in S.
I plan to arrive from HNL @ 1015 am on United with checked luggage, then plan to transfer to an Alaska Air flt to ANC @ 1210p. Do I have enough time to pick up luggage and recheck in to Alaska and get through security? or should I book a later flight. thanks, j
United doesn't fly from Honolulu to Seattle. Are you connecting somewhere else first?
Yes, flying through SFO to get to SEA, thanks
That should be just enough time if the United flight is on-time.
Flying Air Canada to Seattle. Connecting to Omaha on Alaska Airlines leaves 50 minutes later. I have carry on baggage

Is this too tight?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver, so if you check in online for your Alaska flight then you can just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Seattle, so it is possible if the first flight is on-time.
Traveling through SEA from Shanghai with a 2:15 layover before heading to Houston (HOU). Is this enough time to go through immigration, customs, and then have baggage directed to final destination? We are ticketed through to Houston. My understanding is that once through customs, there is a place to put tagged bags on through to connecting flight. Thanks
What airlines are you flying?
Hainan Airlines to SEA and then transfer to Alaska Airlines to HOU.
Then if it's all one reservation that should be enough time. Note that you will be flying into Houston-Bush Intercontinental (IAH), not Houston-Hobby (HOU).
I plan on flying Southwest Airlines to Seattle and then taking Alaska Airlines to Vancouver. Do I need to claim my luggage and go through security at Seattle?
Yes, since Southwest does not have baggage agreements with any other airlines, in Seattle you will have to claim your bags from Southwest, re-check them with Alaska, go through security and to your departure gate.
Hello,
I am flying Alaska from San Diego to SEA and transferring to Korean Air to Seoul. Do I need to claim my bags, go thru customs and then recheck my bags OR just go thru customs and bags are transferred
Thanks
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. if both flights are on the same reservation, all you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am arriving on a domestic flight with Alaska airlines and need to get on an international flight with Alaska. Is it the same terminal? The airlines is giving me 1 hour. There are no other options.
Seattle only has one terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We are 5 passengers arriving from Heathrow at 17.10pm on a British Airways flight. As we have only 1hr. 50 minutes to catch a flight to Anchorage on a Alaska Airlines:
Do we have enough time? Do we have to collect our luggage for the other flight and also we have to change Terminal? If so how can we do it?
Assuming both flights are on the same reservation, you will arrive in Concourse S, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate in Concourse C, D, or N. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying Delta arriving in Seatac with a 35 min layover from arrival time to my next flight departure time. My connecting flight is also a Delta flight. Will I be able to make it in time? Also, which gates does Delta normally use?
It's possible but leaves no time to spare. Delta uses gates in concourses, A, B, and S.
Arriving Seattle on Alaska Airlines. 6:07 AM, connecting to Delta to JFK at 7:40 AM, just carryon, can I make it?
Yes, that's definitely possible. Check in online for your Delta flight so you can go directly to your departure gate.
