First time travelling on my own. I fly Icelandair to Iad (international) and arrive at 19.10 on Sunday. I then have separate booking/ticket to fly domestic with United at 22.10. so I have to pick up my baggage and clear immigration. Can you walk me through the airport please? Where do I go first and what happens then. I appreciate all advice! How long does it normally take to clear the immigration? I am arriving with student visa (european passport) I hope three hours is okay to get through everything? I have to check in again domestic because of the separate ticket..
My South African Airways flight arrives at 6:25am from Johannesburg. I then have to clear customs and immigration and fly on to Atlanta. Can I make the 7:55am Delta flight or should I book the 9:30am flight?
I would book the 9:30 flight since it sounds like you will be on two separate reservations.
Once I land in Dulles (from Atlanta) I have an hour to make my connecting international flight to Dublin. Do I have to go to a different terminal for international flights in Dulles and do I have to go through security again?
No, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation. You should have enough time.
Hi I'm planning on flying from MCO to IAD to FCO tomorrow. The connection time at IAD is only 1hr and 10min, will this be enough time or will I have to leave the security area and then re-check? We are not bringing checked bags, only carry-ons.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
