Airport Processing Times

Fares from Washington DC:

    Q. Do you have any idea what the minimum connection time would be for São Paulo Guarulhos International Airport? I'm considering an Azul flight from Belo Horizonte arriving at 5:50pm, and connecting onward to Newark via a United Airlines flight departing at 9:10pm.

    I think it sounds like plenty of time, don't you?

    A. That should be just enough time to connect, assuming that your incoming flight isn’t late. But United won’t protect you in any way if it is late, because it’s not a through ticket. Checking bags would also a big factor too. And you’ll have to go through security again. posts these airport processing times.

    If it were me, I’d probably be a bit nervous and want to build in a longer layover.
