I came through SLC recentley. Yes, that's enough time if everything is on time. My Delta flight out was actually held for 10 minutes or so for late transfers - but this was the last flight of the day, so may not be normal policy. I'd advise that as you leave the first flight, you find a Delta representative and explain to them your situation. They may just ...

You will not have much leeway time, as your arriving flight and departing flight will be out of two different concourses. Flights to Jackson Hole on SkyWest fly out of the E concourse and your arriving flight will likely be at either D or C (Delta uses some gates in B as well). 34 minutes is enough time to get from one to the other, but you won't have ...

You will have to change planes. If you're lucky, the two planes will be in the same airport terminal, and you can just hop off one, and run to the other, and catch their final boarding. 34 minutes isn't much time at all. Typically, boarding ends 20 minutes before take-off, so if the second flight is running on time, you'll have roughly 14 minutes to make ...

Australia has a kind of quasi-visa very much like the US own ESTA, called Electronic Travel Authority. US citizens have to apply online in advance and pay a fee if they want to enter the country, even for a short visit. But if you are only transiting through an Australian airport, don't need to leave the transit lounge and will leave within 8 hours of ...

TL;DR: You're fine. Long version: You appear to be confusing ESTA with the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), which is common, because this is confusing. ESTA is a pre-authorization that lets you board flights to the US, nothing more. One ESTA is valid for two years and permits unlimited flights to the US. The VWP is a program that lets citizens of certain ...

It's worth considering. There is no such thing as perfectly "safe" in this regard, only varying levels of risk. Typically the airline will allow enough time that the transfer can be made, including luggage, etc, if the first flight arrives on time and everything goes as planned. But it's not a guarantee. If the first flight is delayed for any reason (which ...

There is no absolute answer to this question. In theory, the airline does not like missed connections because they have to find some way to re-accommodate you to your final destination, so they have every incentive not to schedule connections that are too tight to make. In practice, there are lots of missed connections every day, especially when the first ...

Transit visa question in schengen is a very common and frequently asked question here. The answer lies here I am referring to the official European union publication, which is precise and clear. http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/borders-and-visas/visa-policy/docs/frequently_asked_questions_en.pdf I have connecting flights, with a ...

just to be more affirmative about your last question: If my ORD->BOS flight is delayed so I miss the flight out of BOS, will United (or Lufthansa) be obligated to get me from BOS to TLV? Absolutely yes! United is fully responsible for all your flights as you purchased it from them and they provided you the best way to get from point A to point B. Note ...

If you've purchased it as part of a single itinerary, most likely the answer to your first question is yes. Generally, if the carriers are part of an alliance or have interline agreements, then your bag would be through-checked in to your final destination. You can confirm this at the ticketing counter. Answer to your 2nd question is most likely a yes ...

According to the Wikipedia article on L.F. Wade International Airport, there are commercial passenger flights to the US, Canada and the UK. Indian citizens need a visa to visit or transit in all three countries. The US and Canada (for the most part) make no distinction between airport transit and other purposes and always require visas for Indian citizens. ...

Generally speaking, as explained in Do I need a visa to transit in the Schengen area?, holding a residence permit from a Schengen country exempts you from all visa requirements. In that case, you will enter the Schengen area in Germany so what you would otherwise need is a regular Schengen visa (which can be issued for transit purposes), and not an airport ...

Yes I do believe it is, now that the situation there has improved. You are advised to present yourself at US Customs and Immigration at least sixty minutes before departure of your onward service. No, you will arrive as a domestic flight. (In principle US Customs and Immigration have the power to inspect you again, but usually they will not.) Not for an ...

Adding to Flimzys answer: In normal conditions you should have enough time to make the connection in PHL but you come in at a time where a lot of the European flights get in as well, so it will be busy and there is a non-zero chance that you'll miss it. If it's all booked on the same ticket, the airline is responsible of getting you to BMH. If this will ...

Your title and your question don't match. So I'm not sure what you're asking, but I'll answer both questions. Do I need to check out and check in my baggage again in transit airport? Yes. You must gather your checked bag and pass through US customs at the airport where you enter the country. Then you must re-check your bag (even if on the same airline), ...

The immigration checkpoint will be essentially unavoidable when you arrive at your final destination. You can't get anywhere interesting without passing through immigration first. You can't even get your checked luggage, as the baggage claim is between the immigration and customs checkpoints. You may want to avoid passport control in an airport where you ...

When checking in your luggage, ask the person in charge about your luggage; normally, they should be transferred automatically and you will pick them up in London. Also, if you are a minor, you should also tell the person doing the luggage checkin; they will help you get around and will help you towards your connecting flight in Dubai airport when you ...

If Finnair gave you an itinerary using those two flights, then they feel it is a legal, doable connection. It seems short, but that late at night there may not be much traffic so connections might be easier to do. If you are putting the two flights together yourself, then personally I would allow more time. In both cases, if your Hong Kong flight is ...

Normally, Americans do not require a visa of any sort to visit or transit the UK. However, some Americans are unable to qualify because of an unfavourable history. Others experience discomfort and do not believe they will be able to qualify because of their personal circumstances. Some have been visiting the UK too often and they do not want their transit ...

Given that you are making one booking for the whole trip through onetravel i would assume you'll get a single ticket for all legs.

Normally if you have a transit time this short you can ask the airline personnel to assist in expediting the matters.

The max waiting time indicated for immigration was over 2 ...

If you want to collect your bags for the layover, then you will only check in for the first flight and only get the boarding pass for the first flight. But KLM will check you all the way through to your final destination and hold your bags during the layover. So the option is yours.

In case you just wait at Tan Son Nhat airport (Ho Chi Minh City) in a short time, and you do not go out of the transit area, Vietnam visa application is not necessary. However, if your waiting time at the airport takes for several hours and you want to go out of the transit area for some reason, like to visit somewhere or meet someone in Vietnam, you should ...

No. The Tampa - Chicago flight is an arriving domestic flight in Chicago, so obviously there are no formalities. The Chicago - Chennai flight is a departing international flight in Chicago, which you also don't go through immigration formalities for, because the US doesn't have any exit immigration formalities. In fact, many times departing international ...

According to the information provided in the comments, your plan is to visit Greece, Albania, and Macedonia on a single trip. While a multi-entree type C Schengen visa seems to be sufficient for entry into Albania and Macedonia, note that this is a special case. Macedonia and Albania are independent from the Schengen area, and it is thus their choice whom ...

There are no customs nor immigration controls between Chicago and Tampa—they are both in the United States. (I assume you mean Tampa, Florida.) Assuming you are on one ticket, AA to BA: There is an airside bus from Chicago Terminal 3G and 3K to Terminal 5M, so no security either. There are stops near to Gate K19 and Gate G17 [as I remember]. Under one ...
