I am flying from Sacramento (SMF) to Vancouver (YVR) and i will be stopping in Seattle. I leave very early from Sacramento to Seattle, so is this leg going to be considered an international flight, or will the Seattle to Vancouver leg the international portion? I only have 1 hour in Seattle, will this be enough time to go through customs if i have to go through customs in Seattle? Thank you for your help.
The Seattle to Vancouver leg is considered international. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You just show your passport when boarding the plane to Vancouver.
I am arriving on a delta flight 1328 from Anchorage at 11:37PM with a connecting United Airlines connecting flight. What terminal/concourse do United Flights depart from?
United uses Concourse A.
We are flying this Sunday from LHR (British Air) to Anchorage(Alaska Air) with a layover in Seattle. Arriving Seattle at 11:15 and depart 13:30 for Anchorage...no idea on terminals so 1.
wondered if these gates will be close to each other, 2. if we will have to go through another security check after clearing customs/immigration, 3. Will we have to go to a different location to re-check bags or will it be just after customs/immigration? Both flights are on the same itinerary booked through BA. If we do need to go through security, will we need to remove ALL of our cameras and electronics? We are photographers so will have a lot of cameras and lenses with us. 4. Will we have enough time for our transfer?
Seattle only has one terminal. You will arrive in the S Satellite. Go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security, and go to your departure gate. You do not have to take lenses out of bags to go through security. Just the camera bodies.
Also you should have enough time.
How do I get from Icelander Satellite Terminal North to Alaska Airlines on Concourse C?
Icelandair uses the S Satellite, not the N Satellite. Once you clear customs and re-check your bags you will go through security then take the underground train to A and walk to C.
I have a 36 minute layover and have never flown by myself before. I have only carry on luggage. What is the best way to get from Gate B5 to Gate S7 -- and will I have enough time?
B and S are concourses not terminals. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. The only way to get to S is the underground train.
hi, i am flying from Japan to Seattle and then from Seattle to San Jose. The window time is 1 hr and 20 min. I need to get my bags, go through custom and then recheck my bag at the check in right? If that is the case, do I have enough time? Thanks.
That is shorter than the recommended minimum International to domestic connection time. I think that will be very difficult, especially with checked bags.
Hi,
Am traveling from Dubai to Seattle with emirate and have separate air ticket from Seattle - Edmonton with Delta Airlines. Can anyone advice me about the Delta airline baggage checkin & Boarding pass collection counter facility availablity upon clearing (near to) immigration custom at Seattle. or Do I have to exit the arrival floor and go through departure floor and do checkin /SEA - Edmonton at Delta Airline counter.
You will have to go to the main terminal with your bags to re-check your bags with Delta at their regular check in desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.
How long it takes to go from A gates A11 to C gates C 11------thank you
10 to 15 minutes at most.
Thank you so much
I am flying Delta from LAX to Seattle then connecting to Vancouver. I only have max. 35 mins. layover. If arrival in Sea Tac is at Concourse A, say Gate 13 and departure to YVR is at Gate S10, will I have time to connect? Can you tell me how to go from Concourse A to S?
Thanks!
A is connected to S by an underground train inside security. You have enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.
Thank you so much! The outbound from LAX is an early flight so I hope it takes off in time.
Hello everyone,

I am flying from Vancouver to London via Delta connecting from Seattle also via Delta. My anxiety is that I only have 1 hour and 5 mins layover between SEA and London. I have a Global Entry program so plan on using it when arriving at SEA from YVR. Do I have to claim luggage and go through security while in SEA?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you very much for your help! =)
