I will be arriving in Seattle at 8:23am on a Monday morning Alaska Airlines flight from Victoria, BC and then connecting to the 9:50am Alaska Airlines flight to Denver. I am a US citizen and this trip is on one ticket; I will have one bag checked through to Denver. Is this sufficient time to clear customs and make the connection?
Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to claim your bag in Seattle to take it through US Customs then immediately re-check it at the re-check desk before proceeding through security and to your departure gate.
Thanks ZAP!
Hi,
My mother, is supposed to travel from Portland, OR, to Munich, Germany, through Seattle. This Airport seems a bit difficult to an elderly person who's not speaking English. Apparently, the flight from PDX to Sea, (with Alaska, operated by Horizon) will stop at the South Satellite. The next flight, from Sea to Mun will be operated by Condor 2037. Is it possible to find out from which concourse/gate her next flight will depart from? Who should I contact to find such info?
Thank you.
She will not arrive in the South Satellite. She will arrive in C D or N and depart from the North Satellite. If it's all one reservation she just has to go from the arrival gate to her departure gate, but if it's two separate reservations she has to go to the main terminal and transfer her bags from Alaska to Condor and then go through security.
From Shanghai to SEA (Hainan airlines) and then SEA to San Diego. Does connection involve going outside of the security area and back in?
Yes, After you clear customs you have to go through security again to access your departure gate.
How long does it take to get from southwest terminal to Alaska terminal at Seattle Airport
Seattle only has one terminal. If you have checked bags you will have to claim them from Southwest and re-check them with Alaska.
grandson arriving from osan tuesday july 11 at 0850 where do we meet him, what terminal?
Seattle only has one terminal. Just meet him on the arrivals level.
Hi. I'm flying from Taipei to Vancouver but connecting in Seattle. I have 1 hour and 55 minutes layover. Flight from Taipei to Seattle is on EVA and from Seattle to Vancouver on Air Canada. Booked on one reservation through Expedia but there are two confirmation numbers on the itinerary. Is just under 2 hours enough time for customs and recheck bags? Thanks
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello, my mother in law is flying from Seoul to Calgary (Canada) through Seattle (transfer only, no visiting). She is booked to fly Delta Airlines on both flights. Does she have to go through security, passport control and get her luggage? She has 3 hours at the airport to do all of this thanks. Also, my mother in law's English is minimal so is there translation services at the airport that can help her?
Yes, she has to go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and to her departure gate. Yes, there are people who speak and even signs in Korean in the airport.
Hi, I'm arrving into Seattle in terminal A at 10:30, and have a flight to Spokane at 11:30 from terminal C. I booked my tickets separately so I need to reclaim my baggage and check them in again. Will I have enough time?
No, that's not really enough time. Also, A and C are just concourses, not terminals. If you don't bring checked bags you have a chance.
My husband is going to travel from Phoenix to Korea through Alaska Airlines to Seattle, then from Seattle to Korea. Alaska Airlines is at the North Satellite. Will there be a shuttle that will take him to the main terminal where Korean Air is? My husband is an elderly and does not hear or see well but does not want to wait for help. He only has 2 hours layover in Seattle. I am worried to let him travel alone but insists he'll be okay.
If everything is on the same reservation you don't have to go to the main terminal. He can just take the underground train from N to C or D and then another train to S. He has enough time.
coming from Pasco WA dl4515 connecting to Delta DL 2218 I am 69 dont know how to change terminals have 45 minutes will it give me enough time would someone assist me or tell where I have to go and where to get off the tram to right concourse this will happen in September
Seattle only has one terminal. Both of your gates will likely be on A or B, so you won't have to take a tram.
