    Hi, I am travelling from POS, Trinidad to Houston, with a connecting flight to LAX arriving in terminal E and departing in terminal C with 2 hours layover. Is that enough time to clear US customs & immigration? Also my return flight is from LAX - HOU, terminal C to E with 1 hour layover, can i make that? thank you.


    Yes, that is enough time both ways. On the way back to Trinidad all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Also, the airport code for Houston Intercontinental is IAH.


    Thank you, one more question, will I have to re check my bags on arrival at IAH?


    Yes, on arrival from POS you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hi. I will arrive from Costa Rica (LIR) at 19:38 at terminal E and have a connecting flight to London (LHR) on the same terminal at 21:00. I am not a US citizen. Will I have to go through emigration and security anyway? Will I have time to catch my flight to London? Thank you in advance for your answer.


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but will not have to claim your bags. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I have a flight on Sat Feb 25 that lands in IAH at 8:10 (United express 6126 from CVG, either B or C I think) and a departing international flight at 8:55 (United 1096) will i have enough time? Worried


    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hi. I'm flying from Vegas to Houston with a 39 minute connection to London Heathrow. This ticket is sold as a legal connection- any advice? Will I go through immigration at Vegas for quick transfer - both flights are United and sold together - thanks


    There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from Las Vegas is on-time.


  • Manchester - Houston - Austin connecting flights
    Feb 13, 2017
    Hello I have a flight to Austin IAH from Manchester MAN with Singapore Airlines arriving at 2:30pm - there is a connecting flight to Austin at 3:35pm with United; they will automatically transfer the checked bags will I be able to walk to the connecting flight gate or will I have to go through immigration?


    That is not enough time. You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check them with United, go through security and to your departure gate. You need 3 hours.


  • 1 hour connection from B to C

    Hello, I am Canadian, flying to Costa Rica with 2 kids through Houston. We have 1 hour layover and need to get from Terminal B to C. Will we have enough time? Do we need to go through customs? Do we take a tram or walk? Thank you!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. You have enough time. You have to take the tram.


  • LIR - IAH - BOS
    Feb 8, 2017
    I'm looking to travel from Costa Rica to Boston. I have a 1:30 connection, I'm Costa Rican so I'll have to do immigration, all flights with United. I have been looking and sees that I arrive in terminal E form LIR and my flight to BOS leaves form terminal C. Would that be enough time to do immigration and cross the terminals? Do I have to go through security again?


    That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly. Yes, you will have to go through security again after you clear Customs.


  • International layover in EWR and IAH
    Feb 8, 2017
    I'm traveling from Brussels to Guatemala with a stopover in Houston (IAH). My layover time is 1h50. On the way back, I fly from Cancun to Brussels via Newark (EWR). Here the layover time is only 1h30. All flights are with United. Do you think it is possible to do the international transit in such a short time? I've read that United takes care of luggage and that there is no need to re-check it. Is this true for all international flights or only for trips via IAH? If necessary I can travel with hand luggage only. I've also read about OneStop at IAH. Does that help a lot? And does something similar exist in EWR? Finally, an important side note - I visited Iran two years ago (I visited the US and Israel after that). To what extent will that make my transit longer? Considering the Trump administration, could it last longer than it used to? I've read that even the ex prime minister of Norway went through lengthy questioning because of an Iranian stamp... Thanks!


    Yes, that is sufficient connection time. That is true only when entering the country at IAH. when you connect at EWR, you will have to claim and re-check your bags. OneStop will help if you can use it.

    I will be arriving at the terminal B at 8:10 a.m...40 minute stop...carry on bag to terminal B. Will I have enough time? What can I do to speed up the process?


    There is no "process". All you have to do is go from one gate to the other. Run.


  • Insufficient layover in IAH?
    Feb 8, 2017
    I am arriving in IAH from Leon/Guanajuanto at 2:52 pm on Feb 19. I am supposed to take a flight from IAH to Chicago at 6:26 pm. Reading the previous posts, I am afraid I don't have enough time to get through immigration, etc. Both flights are United, I'm a US citizen. I can check or carry on a bag. What's your advice? Re-book? Thanks for your help.


    WHOOPS! Me again. I got that wrong. I arrive in IAH at 5 pm, leaving I only have 1.5 hours in IAH. Impossible?


    Not impossible but pretty close to it. Carry-ons only will help.

    I arrive business class from London on United with connection to Cancun again business class within 2 hrs. I am british citizen, is this possible with Checked bag. ? appreciate advise.

  • fastest route between terminals
    Feb 4, 2017
    If my flight arrives at terminal C22 and departs at E11, what is the fastest way to get from arrival to departure? Is it on the same floor? Do I take a tram or run? 45 minutes in between flights. Thanks in advance.


    Yes, those are on the same level and you can just walk between them. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi there I have a KLM flight from ams to iah, and then a flight from iah to cancun. Flight are on different carriers and not booked as 1 trip. Would 2 hours of connection time be sufficient? Thx for sharing your knowledge :)


    No, I don't think that's enough time if you plan on bringing checked baggage. it's barely enough time with no checked bags if everything goes perfectly.


    Feb 2, 2017
    Hi ! I will arrive with United or Spirit from Las Vegas, collect the bags and check in with a Singapore Airlines flight to Manchester. How many time should I plan for my transit in Houston ? Thanks


    At least 3 hours.
