  • GUA-IAH-YYZ 1H30M transfer time in IAH
    Jul 24, 2014
    Hi, I am flying GUA-IAH-YYZ-TLV with 1H30M tranfer time in IAH, will this be enough? Please note that I am not an american citizen and need go throw immigration. All the flights are with air Canada. Thanks


    Please check your itinerary. Your GUA-IAH flight will be operated by United. Your IAH-YYZ flight could be operated by United Express OR Air Canada. Who operates it will really impact your connection as if it's operated by Air Canada you will have to take the TerminaLink Train all the way to Terminal A after clearing US Customs and re-checking your baggage, but if it's operated by United Express it will leave from B or C. Your connection time is possible but leaves very little spare time for any delays.


  • FRA-IAH-CUN, 1H50M transfer time on 23 Dec
    Jul 24, 2014
    Hi, will be flying FRA-IAH-CUN on 23/12 with 1H50M(110M) transfer time at IAH. Is that enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be in Terminal E, but you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag with United, then go through security and back to the departure gates.


  • 33 minute layover
    Jul 21, 2014
    Flying into IAH from PDX (Portland, OR) to MCO (Orlando) via United. Just realized we have only 33 minutes between the time we land and the time the next flight departs for MCO. Seated at the back of the plane on the first flight with 5 children and concerned we might not make the connection. Appreciate any advice!


    If your first flight is on-time you should be OK. Both flight should be in Terminal C. However, if there are any delays it will be tough. If you miss your connection United has many flights from IAH to MCO, however, I don't know how late in the day your original itinerary is so there may not be later options and you may be stuck in Houston overnight.


  • What gate will I arrive at tomorrow from RDU at 12:53
    Jul 15, 2014
    I need to find out which terminal or gate I will be arriving at to make arrangements to get to my departure gate. I have bad vision.


    There is no RDU-IAH flight scheduled for tomorrow that arrives at 12:53. Please double check your itinerary at United.com

    Trying to get from Cancun to Narita with a 1H12M connection in IAH. Will I be able to go from plane to plane without needing to go through any additional screening?


    All on UAL that is.


    United Airlines uses Terminal E for both international arrivals & departures. On arrival you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in bag, proceed to level 2 and clear security, then turn left for E1-24. You have plenty of time for transfer.


    Actually, 1 hr 12 minutes is less than the minimum connection time for such a transfer. You should contact your travel agent or United to reschedule. Hopefully there is an earlier flight from Cancun or they can route you through a different United hub.


  • AMS - IAH - AUS
    Jul 10, 2014
    I'm flying from Amsterdam through Houston to Austin. What's the least amount of time I need to get through customs to my connecting flight? Thanks!


    90 minutes is the minimum intl -> domestic connection time at IAH.


  • PVR to MSP
    Jul 8, 2014
    Hi, I'm travelling from Puerta Vallarta to Minneapolis with United. I have an 1:35 minutes connection time in IAH to catch my flight to MSP. FLight s are all booked together. Do I have enough time to clear immigration and customs? And also what terminal will I be arriving abd departing from. Thank you


    You will arrive in Terminal E where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with United. Then you will go up to the departure level and through security. Your flight to MSP will depart from Terminal B or C, C is directly connected to E, while you can take the TerminaLink train inside security to B.


    Thank you. So do I have enough time to still make my flight to MSP? I only have 1 hour and 35 minutes.


    Yes, that should be enough time, but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays.


  • DFW to IAH to LGA - 57 min?
    Jul 8, 2014
    Looking to book a ticket coming in from DFW on United Express, and connecting to a United flight (regular) 57 min later going to LaGuardia. Is that too quick of a turn around time? No bags, but worried the flights will come in/leave out of different terminals.


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. The TerminaLink train at IAH connects all terminals inside security.


  • MCO to YYC via IAH
    Jul 6, 2014
    Hi, We will be flying from MCO through IAH to YYC, with a 55 minute layover at IAH. do we need to go through security again at IAH and is 55 minutes enough time? Thanks.


    No, you do not have to go through security again in IAH. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals at IAH inside security if you have to change terminals. You will clear Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Calgary.




  • SAT - IAH - LHR - is 35 mins sufficient?
    Jul 2, 2014
    Hi, I'm travelling from San Antonio to London via IAH. Is 35 mins possible for a connection? This is with United Airlines: UA4561 for SAT-IAH and UA985 for IAH-LHR. thanks!


    It's possible but leaves no room for delays. You will arrive in Terminal B and have to take the TerminaLink Train to Terminal E. If you haven't booked it yet I'd try for an earlier flight from SAT.


  • Connection Cancun to IAH to Vancouver on United
    Jul 26, 2014
    Hi, We are travellign with United from cancun through Houston then to Vancouver with a 1 hr 15 min connection. Tickets were booked together. Will we make it?


    That is very difficult. The minimum connection time for an international arrival at IAH is 90 minutes. You should change your flight.


    Thanks, Just got a notification that they changed my flight time leaving Houston and added on 25 minutes. I think this may work now. Going from terminal E to C.


  • Costa Rica
    Jul 1, 2014
    I'm traveling from LA on the 3rd and have a 39 minute layover on a flight to San Jose, Cost Rica. Is that enough time. As anyone ever don't this route?


    That is enough time but barely. You will arrive in C and depart from E, which are directly connected


    I am on the same exact flight trying to make the same layover. Hopefully if there are enough people they can hold it a few minutes if need be.


  • PHX to FRA via HOU
    Jun 28, 2014
    My daughter is flying from Phoenix to Frankfurt via Houston. If the flights are on schedule she has 1 hr 5 min at HOU. She will be arriving at C42 and will be leaving from Terminal D. Is that enough time?


    Your transfer time is sufficient: On arrival look for signs to North Concourse, gates C14-23: gate C14 connects to gates D1-D3. (TD has gates D1-12).


  • SFO --> HOU (Term C) --> Panama (Term E)
    Jun 28, 2014
    I have a one hour and 15 min connection between my flight from SFO (Terminal C) and my flight to Panama (Terminal E). Is that enough time and is it walkable?


    On arrival at IAH, at Terminal C (TC), which has North & South Concourses (North gates C24-27; South C29-45) - the South Concourse at gate C45 connects to Terminal E. (follow signs). You have plenty of time.


  • Domestic to International 1 hr layover
    Jun 26, 2014
    I am flying from SAT into IAH (term C)with a 1 hr. layover then going to Toronto YYZ (fromTerm A) is this possible ?


    Yes, it's possible. The TerminaLink connects all Terminals inside security. I assume your Toronto flight is on Air Canada if you say you're leaving from A, correct?


    Yes, thanks
