We are flying from Richmond to Dulles, arriving at concourse A and going to concourse B to fly to Germany. We have only 1h 10min. Is any way to walk or only Airtran? Do we go though security again?
A and B concourses are connected (same building), no need to go through security. You can walk to the gate or take the train, you have enough time.
Please help. We arrive on United from IAH then catch an international flight to Rome on United in 1 hour. Do we go thru customs in Dulles. Will we make that flight. Is it far to walk to gate? Thank you
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in IAD on your way to Rome is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
if you are connecting through Dulles from Europe, do you have to physically take your luggage outside of the customs arrival area and re check it with the airline?
If both flights are on the same reservation you can drop the baggage off at the re-check desk right after clearing customs.
How do I get from arrival SWA to Royal Air Maroc?
They should be in the same concourse... and there is no pre-clearance at Dulles airport
Is 1 hour and 6 minutes enough time to get from United coming from New Orleans to SAS heading to Copenhagen?
Yes, you just have to go from your arrival gate in C/D to your departure gate in B.
Canadian arriving from Montreal (I assume US customs will be cleared in YUL)
transit to IAD, arrival at 1147am and leaving IAD at 1234pm (47 minutes between).
Both flights are United, unique reservation.
Will I make it?
Will my baggage make it?
Thx
We are US citizens flying from Montreal and connecting to LAX. We have 57 minutes in Dulles. enough time?
I’m picking up a couple, us citizens, coming in on a direct flight from Munich on Sunday , how long should I give them to clear customs
on Wed I arrive on a United flight and 1hr 38min later depart on Swiss Air - enough time ?
Most airports have secondary walkways so you don't have to take tram. Does Dulles have walkway from C to A if travel or chooses to walk?
No, there is no walkway. You have to take the Mobile Lounge or Aerotrain.
