On friday 14 my boyfriend will be flying into IAH from Omaha and then will connect to a flight from IAH to Mexico. He only will have one hour to make the connection between flights. Will it be enough time? He will only travel with a carry-on. Thank you in advance,
I forgot to say, both flights are with United.
Yes, that is enough time. All he has to do in Houston is go from his arrival gate to his departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
Thank you for your kind reply! We don't know yet what terminal he will be landing, but we suppose it will be at T.B and then move to an international departures terminal(maybe T.E) Is that too far? How many time takes the train between terminals?
Taking the train from B to E shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes.
Ok. Thank you for your help!
Hello! It is me again. I apologize in advance because I don´t want to mean a bother. We have been wondering if -since my boyfriend will connect from Houston to Mexico- he will have to pass through security again or if he will be asked for a passport review before he take the flight to Mexico City? I am a little worried because I will be waiting for him at the Mexico City Airport and I hope he can make it on time. Thank you very much.
I have 50 min or less between flights. C39 - B3. How far is this and can I walk it or tram it?
You have to take the Skyway train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi, I'm flying from POS to Denver connecting in IAH. What do I have to do? I have a layover of 3 hours.
You will arrive in Terminal E, 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 in Terminal C or E. You have enough time.
Both flights are with United. Can you confirm if it will be terminal
C or E?
Yes, United flights from Houston to Denver leave from C or E. Usually C
What would be the recommended time for a connection from inbound Aeromexico flight to a outbound Emirates flight to Dubai?
I would recommend 4 hours.
Hi,

i'm flying LHR to IAH and then IAH to MGA. Since both flight are with United, do you confirm that I won't have to pick-up my checked luggages and that i'll be able to use the OneStop Line? I have a 1h35 connection but with the OneStop I hope it will be fine!
Yes, you can use Onestop.
Nice! Is the OneStop's queue much more faster ?
It really depends on how many people from your flight are using it.
I will be flying in August with my husband. We have both never been on a plane as adults and are nervous. We will fly from Minnesota to IAH to connect with our flight to Mexico and will only have one hour layover. The flights are booked through a travel agency with the same airline for each flight. Will this be enough time? Do we go through security again and or have to recheck luggage?
Has anyone made it through customs and baggage with a cabin pet? I'll have my cat with me in cabin and have transited IAH numerous times internationally with 1.5hrs but never with a cat. Is it possibly or should I bet on missing my connecting flight? Thanks!
I am arriving to IAH for a connecting flight to Mexico. I am not a US Citizen. Is 55 min enough time to catch the connection. I will not have checked luggage.
Thank you
Where are you flying into Houston from?
Hi,
Sometime next month, I'll be arriving from Dubai at 1545, need to clear customs/immigration and catch a connecting flight to MSY on Spirit just before 6 pm. Is this slightly under 2hr connection sufficient? Thanks!
If you had no checked bags it might be barely possible if everything goes perfectly. With checked bags you have no chance. Get a later flight to New Orleans on United.
I am arriving from Auckland into terminal D at 12.40 and departing on to Post of Spain from terminal E at 1.50 both flights are with United. Is it possible to make this connection, please
The first flight is on Air New Zealand. No, that connection is NOT possible.
i´m arriving from argentina at 5.20 am to IAH and then taking a domestic flight to Portland oregon at 9 am. the airline is UA and i have 1 reservation. do i have to get my baggage from one flight to another or the airline takes care of it? which transportation is recommended to connect terminal e to c. thank you!
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then you can go through security in E and walk to C. You have enough time.
Thanks for the explanation!
