  • United layover
    Oct 20, 2016
    On Dec. 16th I'm flying from San Diego to Memphis with a 39 minute layover at IAH. Will I have enough time to make the connection?


    That is barely enough time if the flight from San Diego is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • COS to MIA through IAH
    Oct 20, 2016
    Hi, we have a flight from Colorado Springs to IAH then have 1 hour to change to our flight from IAH to Miami. We don't know the terminals yet, but our tickets do say we will have to change terminals. Is 1 hour enough time? Thank you.


    You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • Connection time
    Oct 19, 2016
    Hi am arriving 1:55pm on a Friday via Air NZ and trying to connect to a United flight to Mexico. I have purchased a priority pass to reduce times spent in queues. At present I have 2 hours 10 minutes to connect. Is this realistic? Many thanks.


    It won't reduce your time spent at immigration or customs, just security. If both tickets are on the same reservation that is just enough time.


  • Do I have enough time?
    Oct 17, 2016
    Hi! I'm traveling from Guatemala (GUA) to the IAH and then taking another airplane to NRT Japan, we arrive at the terminal E and depart from the same terminal. Both flights with United airlines. Do we have enough time? I'm super worried about the time due to the security checks etc. we will travel on November 1st in the morning


    In the earlier thread you said you have 90 minutes? If so that is barely enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. Note that you don't have to claim your bags since you are on an International to International connection all on United, so you can use Onestop Immigration and Customs in Houston. That will save you a little time. It still is barely enough.


    Yes, I double checked and it is actually 1 hour and 40 minutes. Thank you!


  • Flying from NRT, how long in customs?
    Oct 17, 2016
    I will be flying into Houston in December from Tokyo (NRT) and arrive at 7:45 am. There is a delta flight at 10 am to Atlanta I would like to book, but was not sure if 2 hours 15 minutes is enough time in customs with rechecking a bag. Thoughts? How long is the customs process typically on a Friday morning around Christmas?


    On two separate reservations, no that is not enough time if you have checked bags.


    With carry on only do you think I will have enough time?


    Yes, with carry-ons only it's barely enough time if you check in for your Delta flight online before leaving Tokyo.


  • Flying from CDG to IAH on AF and then to New Orleans on United
    Oct 17, 2016
    hello, flying this Friday to IAH with Air France (arriving 14:05). Then to New Orleans with United (17:35), so different airline alliances. What is the process with cheked-in bags please? Can I check-in my bags all the way thru from Paris? I understand we need to clear custom in IAH, what are the steps thereafter? do we need to go back to the landside chek-in area for instance? Many thanks for your help. JF


    If the tickets are on two separate reservations, you will have to carry your bags to the United check-in desk in Terminal C, check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate in Terminal C or B.


  • 35 min stop
    Oct 17, 2016
    In January I am traveling through United from MSP to IAH and have a 35 min layover with a connecting flight to Mexico City. Will 35 min be enough? Do I go through customs in IAH?


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have just enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time.


  • bog-lax
    Oct 16, 2016
    Hi, Im flying from BOG to LAX through IAH- the flight from BOG arrives at 5:30 am with 2 hrs connection time till the next flight. Is customs usually crowded at that time in the morning? Will that be enough time? No checked bags


    There are other arrivals from South America in the morning but the BOG flight is one of the first to arrive. You should have enough time. With no checked bags you can use the OneStop line.


  • 56 min connection
    Oct 16, 2016
    Hi. I will fly in a few days from Miami to Auckland via Houston. First flight with United and second with Air New Zealand, same ticket. I have 56 min connecting time. I've ever been on IAH. Is it enough time?


    You have enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate in Terminal B or C to your departure gate in Terminal D. All gates are connected inside security by the Skyway train.


  • Connection time in for United Airlines to HNL
    Oct 16, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from Raleigh to Honululu via United Airlines with a connection at IAH. The connection time is 1 hour and 10 mins. I was wondering if this is sufficient time as the United agent did not have the gate information as yet. Would the arrival and departure be on the same terminal for United at IAH


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from terminal E. All Terminals are connected inside security by the Skyway train. You have enough time.


    Thanks for the response


  • Please help to calm my nerves
    Oct 15, 2016
    I arrive via Air Canada in IAH in Terminal A at 2:55 pm and have to get to Terminal B to depart at 6:15pm. Where is the Skyway Tram located in Terminal A? Would I have to go through securtiy again? Would I have to go through customs? Would I have to get any checked in luggage? Do I have lots of time? Any advice or information is appreciated. Thanks


    The Skyway is at the center of the terminal and well marked. No, you don't have to go through security again. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.


  • UA from POS to MUC - 2 hours connection
    Oct 21, 2016
    Hi. I will fly in april 2017 from Port of Spain in Trinidad to Munich in Germany via Houston. Both flights with United. I have 1h 55min connecting time. I've ever been on IAH. Is it enough time?


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


    We fly in to IAH from NZ on 23rd Dec landing at 1.45pm. We have a connecting flight to La Guardia at 3.34pm. Our bags will be checked through. However I'm now really concerned that won't be enough time to clear customs. Will we be OK or should I change to the 5.45pm flight? I'd prefer the shorter layover as our travel time is already nearly 20 hours. Thanks


  • From Canada to Houston then connect for Quito Ecuador
    Oct 13, 2016
    I have never had a connecting flight before. Have always flown direct. I have 60 minutes from when our flight arrives in Houston till our flight to Quito leaves. Do I need to get my luggage in Houston or do they route it to the connecting flight? What terminal will I arrive in, what terminal will we depart from? Any help is greatly apprecitated.


    What airlines are you flying? Where in Canada are you coming from?


    Flying in to Houston from Toronto on Air Canada. Connecting in Houston to United Airlines flight to Quito Ecuador


    You will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal E. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is take the Skyway train from Terminal A to Terminal E and walk to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thank you so much


  • Belize City to IAH
    Oct 13, 2016
    Hi. I'm travelling from Belize City in March to IAH and then onto London. There's 2 hours between the flights (both United Airlines). Is this enough time? Thanks


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


    Oct 12, 2016
    We will be flying on United from Belize through IAH. Is 2 hrs 35 minutes enough time to get through customs with checked baggage?


    Yes, that should be enough time.
