  • Layover enough time?
    Feb 26, 2017

    Thinking about taking a domestic flight from Nashville to Honolulu with a two hour layover at IAH. Would this be enough time? It would on United. I'm not sure if I will have to go through security again.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to change terminals the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You don't have to go through security again.

    Flying from SJO (Costa Rica) to FRA (Frankfurt) 1:15h connecting time. Same airline. Do I have to recheck bags? Is there enough connecting time?

     

    You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but do not have to claim and re-check your bags. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.

     

    Thanks!

    Reading this makes me think no but I'm a Canadian citizen flying from Canada to mexico all through united but with only an hour layover at iah. Is this even remotely possibly enough time? would be at 10 in the morning.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you! On the return flight though it is the same flying from Mexico with a stop at IAH on to Canada. All on united. There is a 1h45m layover. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

  • choice between 2 hours or 4

    On april 14 will be flying into IAH from SJD on way to New Orleans both on United. Which would be the better choice?

     

    2 hours is doable, but 4 hours is pretty much risk free. If you don't mind the longer layover, than pick 4 hours.

    I have 1:38 hr to connect from the Cayman Islands to Portland, OR through IAH, both legs on UA. I have Global Entry and carry on only, but some limited mobility. Is this sufficient time to make connections after Customs?.

     

    With Global Entry and carry-ons only that should be enough time.

    there's a 1h 49m layover in IAH for my connecting flight from Guatemala to Lubbock. Is this enough time? (it's all on the same United ticket)

     

    also, forgot to mention I'm not a US citizen

     

    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Okay thanks I'll take another flight then. Also, is 1h24m enough going from Lubbock to Newark (EWR)?

     

    Yes, on that connection all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Do we need to clear US Customs

    Hi, We are US citizens flying in to Houston from Calgary. We arrive in Houston at 11:31am and our next flight (to Orlando) departs at 12:40pm. We are a family of 5. Will we need to clear U.S customs prior to our connecting flight? Will 70 minutes be enough time?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Hi, I already studied the questions around the necessary time between flight but still would like to double check. 1hr 4min can work for the change of flights between terminal B and D for a non-US citizen? Thanky ou!

     

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

    Hello, I am not US citizen, travelling from Bangalore to Guadalajara through IAH. Do I need to go thru US immigration, customs, collect my baggage before boarding connecting flight to GDL

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs and security. What airlines are you flying? There are no nonstops from Bangalore to the US so where are you stopping first? Are all flights on the same reservation?

     

    I am flying thru Lufthansa, first stopover at Frankfurt

     

    yes they are with same reservation

     

    If the flight from Frankfurt is operated by Lufthansa then you will have to claim your bags in Houston. If it's operated by United you won't. Your flight to Guadalajara will be operated by United.

    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.
