Hey guys,

Tomorrow I'm travelling to EGE via DFW and it seems that I have very little time to connect.

My flight arrives at 14.40, gate A34; and the connection is at 15.20, gate C37.

So, is this enough time for me and my family (with a baby and stroller) to make the connection?

And, is there a special way to do it? (maybe train or something like that since I've to change terminals)

Thanks in advance guys!

Happy holidays.

Enrique

With new SkyLink, an easy connection, assuming operatons are normal. A34 is only about a gate or two from the SkyLink station, and only two stops before you get to the station where C-37 is also only a couple gates away. Probably a 5-minute ride...give or take a few minutes.

See these links:

You can click on each Terminal on the map and get a better idea.

Of course, scheduled gates are subject to change, especially with current weather affecting Mid-West airports, but the SkyTrain runs in both directions and departs every 2 minutes.

Safe Travels!

You will need to use the Skylink train. There are two Skylink stations along each terminal. This is the only practical way for you to make the connection in time:

Just look for the Skylink symbol on the map. It looks like your gates are fairly close to the train stops, but you will still need to move quickly if you want to make your connection safely.

Good luck! And make sure you get on the train going the right direction!

Anybody remember when they didn't have the Skylink Train? One time i got delayed and had ten to fifteen minutes to get from B15 to C12 and there was no way the TrAAin was gonna get me there in time.


Anyway, the Skylink Train is the best way to go if you have a short connection. Also watch out for gate changes cause they seem to happen a lot to me at DFW. Hope you have a safe flight!



Happy Holidays!

Yes, you must take Skylink.
It's the best thing to happen to DFW since... Frulatti. Or maybe Sbarro's.

Anyhow, enjoy the ride- it offers some of the best views of aircraft you'll find at any airport, due to the tracks beign routed directly over the gate waiting areas. And it's high-speed, so connections at DFW are now much simpler.

With 40 minutes, I would say you can make it without very much effort at all.
If it weren't for the strollers and such, you could make it on foot in 40 minutes.
