I arrive at 9:04 AM from Atlanta and need to catch an Emirates flight to Dubai leaving at 10:30 AM will I make it and do I have to go through TSA? Thanks
If the flights are on two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags, re-check them with Emirates and go through security. That is not enough time. What airline are you flying on the first flight?
It looks like I get into gate d8 and leave from a3e but I don't see that gate listed on airport maps on united app. I have 50 minutes. Are there signs to point me to busses to take me to other gate and will I make it?
Yes, there are signs. You should have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hello, I will fly from SFO to YYZ with United Airline but there is a layover at IAD with only 1 hour 46 mins. I am Canadian, so do I need to clear customs first or can I go straight to my departure gate for my connecting flight? If I can go directly to the departure gate, will there be enough time to walk over? Thank you.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
I'm thinking of booking a flight from New York to Savannah, Georgia. There is one stop with only a 35-minute connection at the Washington Dulles Airport (first flight gets in at 11:50am, second flight departs at 12:25pm). How large is this airport? Do you think this will be enough time?
The airport is not that large, but such a short connection time doesn't leave any time to spare if the flight from New York is delayed.
So my flight lands at 14.55 and my next flight is at 17.25. I bought my flights separately and I'm afraid I wont make the second one, if the customs process is really slow. Is 2,5hours too little layover time for a non-citizen traveler?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
