  • Changing from domestic to international on a separate ticket

    I'm flying to IAH with United on a separate ticket and have to get to Turkish airline gate after I claim my luggage. I do know I have to security and wonder if 3 hours will be enough time to do all that! Thanks

     

    3 hours should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.

     

  • QUESTION ABOUT INT. CONNECTING FLIGHT

    I have a missionary team traveling to Managua, Nicaragua (about 8-10 people) and am considering taking a United Flight through IAH that has a 1 hr 4 min. layover, and I'm pretty sure we'd be changing termnals. Would this be enough time, considering we'd be taking a 6:10 flight, getting to IAh at 7:56 a.m.?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I am flying into Houston from Denver on United, and flying out on a separate ticket with EVA Air. Will I need to go through security again after I pick up my checked bag? Thank you

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again. baggage claim is outside security. However, since United and Eva are Star Alliance partners you can show your Eva confirmation to the United agent in Denver and ask that your bag be checked through to Taipei or your final destination.

    Flying from DFW to Cancun via IAH with one hour transit time in IAH. Is one hour sufficient to make the transit? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that is possible as long as the flight from DFW is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Have a 49 min connection in IAH coming from SFO, going to GIG. Looks like SFO->IAH will land in terminal C, IAH->GIG will leave from terminal E. No checked bags, no customs to deal with. Will I be able to get from C to E without leaving secure area and needing to screen again? Both flights are United.

     

    Yes, you can walk from C to E inside security. You have enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time.

    Hi, We are flying from London to panama city via houston and have 1hour 50 to make the connecting flight. We are flying with Austrian airlines. I was wondering if that would be enough time? Thanks, wayne

     

    Both flights are operated by United. it is technically a legal connection, but it will be very difficult to actually accomplish, bordering on impossible. You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and security in Houston.

     

    Hi, Thanks very much for your comment. I have just booked an alternative with a 2hr 32 layover in Newark on route to Panama so I hope that will be better? Thanks very much for your feedback. I hope the new extended period of time will help.. Wayne

     

    Yes, that is a bit more doable.

    I will be arriving from Toronto and connecting for a flight to Little Rock. I have 1.5 h between flights. Is it enough? DO I have to go through customs? Do I have to collect my bagage?

     

    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 all terminals inside security. You don't have to do anything with your bags, you have enough time.

    We are flyin Air NZ Auckland to Houston on Friday Jul 1st arriving at 12.30pm. Our flight to Orlando departs at 2.40pm. Do we have enough time to make this connections

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly and they get the security issues sorted out by july.

    I'm arriving terminal E from Trinidad connecting to Memphis flight from terminal B. Do we collect our own bags, go through customs, security again or is all this done for us by staying 'sterile' airside? Layover time is 2 hours. Any advice appreciated, thanks

     

    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. Given the recent security delays, I don't think you will realistically have enough time unless everything goes perfectly.

    Flying in from Corpus Christi with Air Canada operated by United Express/Express Jet Airlines then connect to Air Canada Express to Montreal, Canada. Layover is 48 minutes. Will there be terminal change and enough time to pass through security/customs?

     

    There is no US Customs when exiting the US and you don't have to go through security. The Skyway train connects all gates and terminals inside security. You have enough time if your flight from Corpus Christi is on-time.

    I am flying from San Salvador arriving at 10:55 a.m, my next flight leaves at 1:00 going to DC with only 2:05 layover. Is that enough to catch my next flight?

     

    It's possible if everything goes perfectly.

    I have a United Flight arriving at 8:40 p.m. and connecting with an Air New Zealand flight at 10:30. WIll that leave enough time for the connection? Will I have to exit security and then re-enter?

     

    That United flight is a domestic flight from Memphis

     

    You do not have to exit security. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals and gates inside security.

     

  • NZ - Houston - Cancun transit time

    Hi - I am flying NZ - Houston (AirNZ) and then to Cancun (United). I have a 1 hour 40 min transit time in Houston. Do I need to clear customs in Houston and will this be enough time for me to get to my Cancun flight (it is what AirNZ is suggesting but it seems a very short period?). Any assistance much appreciated.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. This is a legal connection, but considering how long security lines have been, not very realistic.

     

    Many thank! What would you suggest is a more realistic transit time for a connection like that? Ie to clear customs, board new flight etc

     

    With the current issues with security lines - probably 3 hours minimum.
