  • Where do we go through Customs?
    Dec 31, 2016
    Traveling from Houston to Guayaquil, Ecuador with a layover in Bogato, Columbia. Do we go through Customs in Columbia or when we arrive in Ecuador?


    What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?


    Flying United to Bogota. Not worried about return flight - don't get out of Ecuador until we land back in Houston


    What airline are you flying from Botota to Guayaquil? If everything is on the same reservation you do not have to go through Colombian immigration in Bogota.

    What will the customs/security experience be like? How much of a layove is necessary to ensure I catch my last connection


    On your way to Cancun you don't have to go through Customs or security in Houston (if you are connecting from another place in the US), an hour is fine. On the way back I'd want 2 hours.

  • Can I get thru security without plane ticket?
    May 5, 2016
    I am wondering if I can go thru security with just my ID if I am not getting on a flight? I am just going to surprise someone at their terminal when they exit their plane and I'm wondering if I can get thru security to do so.


    No, you can't.


  • 43 minute connection time
    Apr 12, 2016
    Hi, Flying into Houston Terminal B from Memphis with a 43 min connection time (assuming no delays) and flying out to Las Vegas from Terminal C. I don't have to collect baggage but is this enough time and do I have to go thro' security.


    The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. That is enough time. Obviously it doesn't leave much time to spare if your first flight is delayed.


    Thanks ZAP...was a bit concerned as never been thro' Houston before Cheers


  • SJO > IAH > ORD
    Nov 28, 2015
    Help! United 1490 to IAH has been delayed 26 minutes (now landing at 1734), leaving me 1 hour 40 minutes to get through customs/immigration in Houston and make it to UA 1027 (scheduled depart 1920). I have several checked bags. TSA prechecked, if that makes a difference, and both flights are on the same reservation. Can this be done?? Thank you!


    That should still be enough time. If your flight gets delayed more United has almost hourly flights from Houston to Chicago.


    now not landing in houston until 1759.. looking less and less likely that this is going to work. ugh!


    There's an 11:55 pm IAH-ORD flight that looks to have plenty of empty seats, so you'll get to Chicago tonight, just really late.

    If Im flying domestic airlines from jfk to houston. Do I need to go thru immigration?


    If you are just flying from JFK to Houston no, you do not go through Immigration, New York and Texas are both part of the United States.
