    US AIR BOS-Aruba-connecting in Charlotte

    When do I clear customs for this flight. My flight leaves boston at 8am with a connection in Charlotte. Do I need to be there 2 hours before like all international flights or is the first leg domestic?

    Thanks in advance

    You clear customs in Aruba on the way down and on the way back. The only thing you have to do in Boston is show them your passport, just like all other international flights.

    1.5 hrs of INTERNATIONAL may not be sufficient.
    i think the airlines recommends 2 hrs.

    when we leave on an international flight from boston, even with a usa connection we always leave 2 hrs.

    if the final destination is international, the flight is considered international even with a usa stopover/change of planes.

    I'm not familiar with the lines at the ticket counters or security lanes in Boston. I'm sure others can help you more than I can with that. My only advice regarding flights is that there is no penalty to being early.
