Transfert time Chicago O'Hare Terminal 5 to Terminal 1

Hi,

I am flying to Jackson Hole to see Yellowstone In late Aug.

Looking at flights, my international flight stops at Chicago and I have 2 hr 40 min stopover during which I have to pass immigration, collect baggage, pass customs and catch the tram to go to T1.

Do I have enough time?

I would post this on the Chicago forum because many there would have info on flights. This forum would have more info and flight times for the Jackson Hole airport.

Hi deepamg, I can only speak from our personal experience, we had exactly the same time of 2 hours 40 mins last year in Chicago for our connecting flight, we thankfully had no problems. Our flight from the UK actually left London early, which gained us a little more time. Immigration queue at Chicago took an hour to get through. We found it easy to re drop luggage as we exited customs, then we caught the tram from T5 to T1, went through security, then we even had time to have lunch in T1 while we waited for our next flight. If your flight was on time, I don't think you would have a problem. Based on the time we waited for our connecting flight I think we would have been ok too had we had a bit less time. Hope that helps to reassure you as I worried a lot about the connection time before we went.

Thank you so much for the feedback. I have now booked my flights. The concerning thing is that this is the last direct flight for Jackson Hole on the day.
