ORD- What Terminal Is This?

Sat Mar 10, 2007 3:01 pm

As I was in the rental car bus heading to Avis, we passed this terminal away from the others. What is it and who does it serve?

That looks to me like the international terminal, serving all arriving international flights, and most departures except for AA, UA, and their partners.

That is the international terminal (Terminal 5). Terminal 5 serves all international arrivals and international departures (except United, American, Lufthansa, and Iberia).

This is International Terminal 5. International carriers EI, AF, AI, JM, AZ, OZ, BA, BD, KX, LY, JL, KL, MX, RJ, PK, SK, LX, TA, TK, and USA 3000 operate arrivals and departures out of this terminal. Also, since it houses the only customs facility at ORD, American, United, Iberia, Lufthansa, and All Nippon arrive into T5 and then move to Terminals 1 or 3, depending on the airline. VS and SA will also use this terminal when they start ORD service.

Hope this helps!

Except, of course, Air Canada. Pre-Clearance doesn't change that Canada is a different country.

ANA also departs from T1 as opposed to T5... And l believe PrivatAir departures are in T1 as well.

So do all international arrivals arrive hear. So if I am flying from London to St Louis on AA via ORD I arrive here and have to take the train to catch my second leg?

All international flights except for Canadian flights arrive at T5.

YUP that the international terminal......i can see Mike 15.......that were we parked last time i arrived ..........the beutiful thing about the international terminal is that its close to 04R and 09L....meaning that as soon as you land and get off the runway the international terminal is righ there....meaning minimum taxing time......

Now...i dont know if this is true or not...but i was told that at ORD...that many international heavies are always given the vectors for final apporach to either 22R, 27L, 04R and )09L......because its so close to the terminal. Now some are going to say that it all depends on the wind direction of that specific day....but it doesnt.....ORD has so much ground taxing traffic...that they rather of the aircraft do somewhat of a crosswind just so they can reduce the international carriers from taxing so much...

Fiaz..

Unfortunately, SA has put off their plans to come to ORD until further notice, if ever.  Sad

You are probably correct, although its less likely to see a 4R arrival for international flights. And more likely 9R rather than 9L. 9R is one turn-off to T5. Keep in mind that arrival runways for large widebodies also has to due with taxiway limitations. When the first A346 (IB) arrived at ORD, they landed on 14R - one turn to T5. (The A380 is also most likely to land on 14R on its initial visit.)

What I have noticed is that its more likely to have non-English speaking (not native language) foreign-operated international arrivals come in on either 27L, 9R or 14R. My theory is that less taxiing requires less communication - therefore ruducing the likelyhood of a misunderstanding of directions given by the ground controllers. This doesn't happen all the time, but more often than not. Just my theory.

I don't think there is any sort of rules. Some pilots may request a longer runway like 14R or 27L instead of 22R or 27R, as for European inbounds the latter set of runways are better for traffic coordination.

Couldn't the A380 land on 27L/9R too, but that runway isn't wide as 14R/32L. Runway 4R is shorter but not much taxi time to T5.
