  • time between flights

    I'm flying from Detroit to Huston then from Huston to Tampico (I guess with just one ticket so I don't have to pick up my luggage) but there's only 50 minutes between the two flights.. is that enough?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both gates will likely be in Terminal B, but there's a small chance you will arrive in Terminal C. If so the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I'm flying in from Singapore via Moscow on SQ (Terminal E) and catching a connection (separately ticketed) on United (Terminal C) to New York with a 2.5h layover time. I presume I got to collect my baggage, clear customs and recheck in again? Is there enough time as I have never gone through this process in IAH before? Thanks in advance!

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, carry it to Terminal C, check it with United, then go through security. you should have just enough time.

    my friend is flying in from Santiago Chile to Hawaii via Houston. First question does she clear customs in Houston? then pick up her luggage and recheck it for her onward flight. Gracias.

     

    Yes, in Houston, she will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to her departure gate.

    We have flight July 2 from Toronto YYZ to Quito Ecuador through Houston, Air Canada from Toronto arrives Houston 3:07pm, then United flight departs Houston 5:35pm for Quito so 2:28 between flights. Posts seem to indicate this is sufficient - just wanted to check with someone in the know please.

     

    that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects Terminal A where you arrive to Terminal E where you depart inside security.

    I am traveling with United from Mobile Alabama to Sacramento California via Houston. I have 1 hour between planes - is that enough time to get to my connection as I have never been in the Houston airport before.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will likely have to change terminals. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hi I will be travelling in july and coming back to Toronto from san antonio tx making conection at houston with 37 minutes layover is that enough time? Also it's in different terminals. Furthermore will I need to grab my luggage and re-check them?

     

    may I add I am travelling with united

     

    You won't have to do anything with your bags in Houston. All you need to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you need to change terminals (you may not), the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time if the flight from San Antonio is on-time.

    Hello, my husband and I will be flying to Mexico in November. Our layover in Houston is 46 minutes. Is that enough time to make it to our connecting flight to Mexico?

     

    Where are you flying to Houston from? What airlines are you on?

     

    We will be flying in from Kansas City to Houston then on to Cancun, Mexcio with a 46 minute layover in Houston. We will be flying United.

     

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

    I'm flying with United from Panama via Houston to Frankfurt. Arrival in Houston at 2:10 pm at Terminal E and departing with Lufthansa at 3:55 pm at Terminal D. Are 1:45 h sufficient to clear immigration, customs and security? Read elsewhere comments that this is too short time.

     

    That should be enough time if the flight from Panama is on-time, but it's cutting it close.

     

  • Flying Cabo San Lucus to Houston w/connection to Tampa

    Will be coming home from Cabo on 5/7 arriving in Houston. Will 1hr and 12 mins be enough time to make our connecting flight to Tampa? Do we have to go through customs in Houston? Will our bags be transferred by the airline? All flights are on United and are booked on same ticket. Thanks

     

    In Houston you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 72 minutes is not enough time for an International to domestic connection through houston. The minimum is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended. You need to contact whoever you booked your ticket through and be rebooked.

    I am due to arrie at Houston from Belize with United on the 23rd May and my connecting flight again with United to London Heathrow is 1 hour 10 minutes later - will that be enough? Thanks

     

    No, that is not enough time for an International to International connection through Houston.

     

    Thanks for the updates- not sure why United have it as a connecting flight. Does it take so long as you need to pick up baggage and recheck in? Looks like I may be waiting a long time for the next flight.

     

    Since you are on an International to International connection, you do not have to claim and re-check your baggage, but you do have to go through US Immigration and customs and security.

    We are flying to Toronto from Puerta Vallarta with a layover in Houston. Do we have to go through US customs/immigration?

     

    Yes, however, since you are on an International to International connection you can go to the Onestop immigration/customs line since you don't have to claim your bags. You will then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Yes, that should be enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bags. Are you going to Panama City, Panama, or Panama City, Florida?

     

    Panamá City, FL

     

  • London-Houston-Quito

    Hi! I've seen you need around 2 hours to transfer on international-international flights. I checked on google and it said that the Lufthansa flight from London arrives at terminal E, gate 4, and my United flight to Quito leaves from terminal E, gate 15. I have a 1h50m layover. Is this enough? What checks do I have to go through?

     

    Your flight from London will be operated by United, so be sure to check in with United in London, not Lufthansa. You don't know the exact gates until the day of your flight although they will both be in Terminal E. When you arrive follow the signs to "Onestop" immigration and Customs - you don't have to claim your bags in Houston since you are on an International to International connection. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.

     

    Hi, my parents are flying in from Nigeria and will arrive Houston then board to final destination of Los Angeles. Will they need to check out their luggage at Houston and go through immigration and then recheck to join the local flight, their wait time in Houstin is 2hours, will that be enough?

    I am flying from Roatan, Honduras to Calgary with a connection in Houston. I have 1 hour and 10 minutes to connect. Is this sufficient?

     

    No, that is not enough time for an International to International connection in Houston. You need at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours.

     

    Thank you. United Airlines keeps on insisting that this is sufficient time after they cancelled my flight that was to leave at a later time.

    I am arriving from Toronto at IAH at 622pm. My departure flight to Guatemala City leaves at 725pm. Is this enough time to connect?

     

    That's enough time as long as your bags are checked through and your flight from Toronto is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Also, your flight to Guatemala City will actually depart from Terminal E.
