Landing in Terminal 1, taking off one hour later from Terminal 3. With only a one hour layover, will I have enough time to change terminals?

    International or national arrival? Luggage rechecking or not? One ticket or separate tickets?

  • To make life easier, can you please also use the full name and/or city/country of the airport?

  • Sorry-new to this platform. All domestic within US- Flying into Dallas Fort Worth from Bozeman, MT, terminal 1. Leaving from terminal 3 one hour later to Charlotte, NC. I’m concerned about the short layover. Dec 26, 2018 at 14:09

    Please indicate whether this is a single ticket or two separate ones and whether you have checked luggage or not. It makes a huge difference .

  • @Hilmar Given the OP's lack of familiarity with SE, I think this line if questioning is over the top. It is quite uncommon in the US to arrive and depart on different tickets, and, if on the same ticket, where they is luggage it not is irrelevant since it is domestic US travel.

DFW does not use numbers for terminals. DFW uses letters. So....

Presuming you mean Terminal A to Terminal C, yes. If, almost certainly, American Airlines sold that itinerary as a single ticket, they expect you to make it and from experience, yes, it is enough time.

As soon as you enter the terminal, look for the SkyTrain signs. Terminal C is the next terminal in the inner loop.

If you require mobility assistance, you can arrange that prior to departing for DFW.
