    flying from new orleans to mexico city with a 54 minute layover in IAH...will that be enough time to run from arrival to departure gate or should i choose a different flight? i am canadian so was wondering if i'll have to go through customs or anything which would take up time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Customs when exiting the US. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I will go from Mexico to Seattle with a connection in Houston on a United flight. I have 1h 50m will it be enough? Do I need to pick up my bags from first flight?

     

    Yes, you will 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi. I have a 37 minute connection in Houston to connect a flight to costa rica. Is 37 cutting it close?

     

    It's possible but it certainly leaves no time to spare if the first flight is late at all.

    How long will it take to get from Terminal A to Terminal D

     

    If you don't have to do anything with your bags and can stay inside security. You can get there on the Skyway train in about 10 minutes.

     

    Perfect, thanks.

     

    What would be a realistic layover time in order to get conection to Denver CO from Panama (pty international airport)

    Hi, I have a trip coming soon but have noticed that the connection times may be cutting it a bit fine. Inbound Dubai (DXB) - Houston (IAH) on Emirates arrival 1545hrs Houston (IAH) - Lafayette on United departure 1735hrs 110 minutes to make the connection Outbound Lafayette - Houston (IAH) on United arrival 1700hrs Houston (IAH) - Dubai (DXB) on Emirates departure 1900hrs 120 minutes to make the connection. Is this enough time to make the connection on the inbound and outbound flights? Thanks

     

    Are these on two separate reservations or one reservation? If two separate reservations you do not have enough time on your way to Lafayette and barely have enough time on your way back to Dubai.

     

    Thank you. I will change the Houston-Lafayette-Houston flight to give more time. Thanks for your response and advise.

    I'm flying from Shreveport (UA 4208W) to Houston and then take UA 404W to San Francisco. I have 50 minutes. Is there any service available to take me to my departure gate directly? How Do I get in touch with them? Thanks.

     

    If you need a wheelchair you contact United to request it. There is no other service. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C or E. All terminals are connected inside security by the skyway train.

    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.

    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.
