I arrive to SEA on Frontier at 2:30pm from COS on 6/24/18. Flight out to ANC on Alaska at 4:00pm. Need to grab bags at baggage claim and check them into Alaska. Is this doable? I am flying first class on Alaska so hoping lines will be a little shorter at check-in. Also have TSA Pre.
I am looking at flight to Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) from London Heathrow. One option is flying via Seattle. Is a 4-hour layover enough to go through immigration and customs. It will be one ticket, so I'm assuming I do not have to re-check my luggage. It will be my first time in Seattle, so I do not know how the airport works. Is it like Atlanta, where you leave your luggage to the airport people once you have done customs? Thank you!
You will have to claim your bags to bring them through US Customs and re-check it right after, but 4 hours is plenty of time.
Thanks! If I fly through Calgary (and not via Seattle) will 3.5 hours be enough as well?
We are travelling from Edmonton, AB, Canada to San Francisco via Seattle on Compass/Delta Connection and SkyWest Delta Connection. We go through U.S. Pre-Clearance in Edmonton. Do we need to pick up our luggage in Seattle and go through security again or is it checked straight through to San Francisco?
All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your bags will be transferred for you.
Two questions if I can, I am travelling from London Heathrow and on to Calgary with a connection in Seattle. 1.) will I need to ensure I have a valid US. Visa Waiver (ESTA) in place ? 2.) Do we need to clear U.s Custombefore continuing on to Canada ?
Yes, you will need ESTA if you are a British Citizen. Yes, you need to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security, and to your departure gate.
Travelling from kelowna- Seattle Tacoma by Alaskan air then to dubai by emirates. Once I check in bags at kelowna-, do I need to claim and re check in at Seattle? All connections are in one ticket with emirates
Yes, in Seattle you will have to 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.
