We will be flying into Houston on United Terminal C then we must transfer to Terminal D for flights on Air New Zealand. Total time between flights is 80 minutes. Will we have to pick-up and recheck bags and is this enough time?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bags. Just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I arrive at Terminal A on Air Canada, and have 1 hour 45 minutes to catch a plane to Queretero, Mexico, United Airlines 6086. Is that enough time?
Yes, you will preclear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Houston is take the Skyway train from Terminal A to your departure gate in Terminal B.
We are travelling with Air Canada from Toronto to Huston with exactly a one hour stop over, then going with American Airlines to Puerto Vallerta. Will this be enough time to get there? Will we have to re-check our baggage and go through security and customs again?
American AIrlines does not fly from Houston to Puerto Vallarta. Please double check your reservation. Are you flying United? Are both flights on the same reservation?
I fly tomorrow from vegas to Houston, arriving at terminal 3 gate D55 at 2.39pm. I have to catch the 3.25 from Houston to London. I don't know the terminal yet. I have a bag checked in.
Can I make it?
Do I need to get my bag and re-check it? I really don't think I can make it if I need to do that?
The gate you are seeing "T3 Gate D55" is your gate in las vegas. In Houston you will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on United. You have enough time if the flight from Las Vegas is on-time.
We will be returning from LIR (Costa Rica) and connecting to Denver. We have a 90 minuted layover and need to change terminals. Is 90 minutes enough time? And, we have checked baggage, how does that work. Thank you!
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. 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 take the Skyway train or walk to your departure gate.
Thank you!
Provided my flight is on time, I will arrive in Houston at 8:10pm. Connecting flight to Denver is scheduled to depart at 9:50pm. Is that enough time to clear customs, re-check bags and catch the connection? If so and time willing, is there anywhere to grab a sandwich on the way to the connecting flight?
Note that Southwest does not fly to Houston-Bush-Intercontinental Airport. They fly to Houston-Hobby Airport. Yes, that is enough time for your connection. I don't know if you will have time to stop for food.
Hi, I'm a Canadian citizen flying via United Jan. 15th from POS to IAH. Arriving at Terminal E at 1:25pm. Connecting at 3:30pm to Calgary via United at Terminal C. Do I need to go through customs and recheck bags? 2 hours enough time to connect? How do I get from E to C? any tips for speeding this connection up? Thankyou!
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but will not have to claim and re-check your bags since you are on an International to International connection all on United. Once you clear customs, you can either walk to C and go through security there or go through security in D or E and then walk or take the skyway to C. You have enough time.
Thankyou!
I will arrive in houston airport terminal B and I need to go to my connecting flight at terminal D, is my 30 minutes layover enough? i'm not familiar with houston airport, can somebody tell me on what to do toavoid eny problem? thank you
It's not impossible, but it depends on everything going perfectly. You need to run to the Skyway train, take it to Terminal D, and run to your gate.
thank you Zap, however looking at the map, I can only see subway going to terminal D,
ok, skyway is in level 3, thank you very much
My flight is arriving at IAH from Francfurt Germany at 14.05 h UA 8866. My connecting fligjt to New Orleans is dept. at 17:45 h. How Long is the way to the Dept-gate? And, have I to Claim my bag and then re-check for the flight to New orleans ? thanks
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal D (first flight is operated by Lufthansa), then go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate. If the departure gate is in Terminal B you can take the Skyway train to Terminal B after you go through security.
We fly into IAH from Des Moines, IA on Feb. 17th and only have a 45 minute layover before our connecting flight to Puerto Vallarta. All of our flights are with United/United express and we plan on checking our bags to our destination. Assuming our flight arrives on schedule into IAH, should we have enough time to make our connecting flight? And will we have to go through additional security at IAH due to the international connection?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. if you arrive in Terminal B, you can take the Skyway train to Terminal E inside security. There is no special security for International flights.
