  • Clear customs?

    I am flying United from Naples, Italy to Munich, to IAH. I have only a 1 hr. 40 min. layover before heading to Memphis. Is this going to be enough time to get through customs?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, I am a US Citizen, flying United from Costa Rica to Boston with a 1h 39m layover at IAH. Is that enough time to clear customs and recheck my bags?

     

    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, is 50 minutes enough time to arrive from Vancouver Canada (will already have cleared US customs in Vancouver) and get on a connecting flight to Santiago. Flying United. Thanks

     

    Yes, all you have to do in Houston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi I am flying from South Africa to BJX (Mexico) via IAH. I will be arriving on an Emirates flight at 15:45 on a Saturday and the flight to BJX using United is departing at 19:10. would that be enough time to get through customs and get to the next flight? Thanks for the help

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to bring your bags yourself from Customs to the United check-in desk to re-check your bags if you purchased two separate reservations.

    Hi I am a British citizen flying from cancun with U.A to Las Vegas with a stop over connection in Houston of 1hr 23mins is this long enough to make my connection I land at 1.07 pm and depart 2.30 pm

     

    That is not realistically enough time. The minimum International to domestic connection time in Houston is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended. They will rebook you on their next available flight to Vegas if you miss your connection, however, depending on the day of the week you are traveling that could be awhile as flights to Las Vegas are typically very full.

     

    Thanks for your reply i arrive on a Sunday, I am not flying until next July do you recommend I try and change my connection now.

     

    Chances are the schedule of your flights will change before next July anyway, so I would not pay a change fee at this point. If the schedule changes, you can call United and get changed to a longer connection without paying a change fee.

     

    Thanks zap for your very helpful information fingers crossed for a schedule change

    If I am on a United flight from Indianapolis to Houston then on to Belize City will 1 hour and 12 minutes be enough of a layover to make my next flight?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate. the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Auckland > Houston > NYC

    I'm flying Auckland to Houston on Air NewZealand, then onto NYC - my flight from Auckland arrives at 12.30pm and I'm looking at a 2.20pm flight to NYC (American Airlines), will that be enough time to clear customs and make it to the gate?

     

    Since American and Air New Zealand don't have an interline agreement, you can't simply drop your bags at the recheck desk. You'll have to walk to the American desk and check it in. This is not enough time, in all likelihood. You need at least 2h10m in this situation to safely guarantee that you'll make the flight. I reccomend that you choose a later American flight, or fly United, as they do have an interlude agreement with Air New Zealand, so you would only need 1h45m for the connection.

     

    thank you!

    am a Brazilian tourist flying from Rio (GIG) to Chicago ORD connecting in Houston IAH at 05:25 departing at 07:15 on a Saturday. Is that enough time to clear customs?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Rio is on-time.

    looking at a flight from seattle to houston, the connection is 42 minutes, united is airline, is that enough time??

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. It obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if the first flight is delayed.

    we are flying from Toronto to Quito. Air Canada via Houston connecting to United is 2hr 40 minutes enough time. We clear customs in Toronto.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Houston on your way to Quito is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Can I get from terminal C to terminal E in 45 minutes
    Aug 16, 2016

    Hi, camp leaders have booked my return flight. It is a interconnecting flight to Houston terminal C. I have to get to terminal E in 45 minutes before my flight departs to England. Is it possible to get from terminal C to terminal E to make my flight home. Also my suitcase does that automatically get transferred to the flight home and do I have to go through border security or not. This is my first time doing interconnecting flights. Any advice would be great. Thank You

     

    I forgot to mention that I am flying from Orlando to Houston. Then Houston to London.

     

    That is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. It obviously leaves very little time to spare if the flight from Orlando is delayed.

     

  • Arriving from SFO; departing for Lima, Peru: Dec. 6, 2016

    I am arriving on UAL Flt.1958 from SFO at 3:04 pm. UAL Flt 854 leaves at 4 pm. Will I make it? This schedule change just happened today.

     

    It's possible, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Even if the 2nd flight is international, to LIMA. First flight arrives from San Francisco.

     

    And on the return, arriving UA from BOGOTA at 1:10 and connecting to LAX at 2:45 on UA (same reservation), will I make it even with customs? I will have secured my GOES authorization.

     

    Thanks so much for knowing so much!! I do obsess about this stuff.

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. On your return you have just enough time, having Global Entry helps.

     

  • Finding Terminalink in Terminal B
    Aug 9, 2016

    OK - I am ignorant. I've only flown IAH once and from Terminal B I can't remember how to get to the Terminalink to go to Terminal C. I remember escalators but nothing from there.

     

    It's really well marked, just go towards the center of B and then follow the signs that say C and the other terminals. It's called the Skyway now, not the Terminalink - they just changed the name.

     

    Thanks. I have no sense of direction and I have to have some idea of where I am going when I travel. Just up the escalator and then to the back of Terminal B - right? Appreciate your help.

     

  • Risky Connection United flight

    Hi,i'm traveling from Costa Rica (SJO) to Orlando (MCO) with connection in Houston (IAH), arriving to Houston at 17.50 and departing to Orlando at 19.10 The connection time is 1 hour 20 minutes in Houston. It's enough time to take flight to Orlando? Thanks!!

     

    That's below the recommended International to Domestic connection time at Houston. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible if you have checked bags.

     

    We're 4 adults 2 kids and a baby, and yes 3 checked bags and a stroller. Due the hour we're arriving to IAH do you think that it's not possible to take our flight to Orlando (both flightsare from UA) Thanks again

     

    Yes, with all that stuff I don't think there's any reasonable chance you can make that connection.
