  • International connection within terminal E

    I will arrive from Munich Germany to terminal E on Dec. 30 at 18.05, with a 1h25min layover to Mexico City from the same terminal. Both flights are operated by United airlines and booked with the same ticket. Will it be possible to make this connection? Thanks for any advice!

     

    It's barely possible. You have to go through US customs, immigration, and security.

    I am traveling from terminal A to D and I have check in 2 bags as my 2 flights are operated by different airlines and the ticket was booked separately ! How should that be done ? Which way is advisable if I have 2 bags ?

     

    You will have to claim your bags in terminal A, take them on the subway train to Terminal D, recheck your bags and go through security. You need at least 2.5 hours.

    We have 41 mins to go from Terminal A (A2) to Terminal C (C45). What would be the best way to do it in that time frame.

     

    If you don't have checked bags or your checked bags are tagged through to United, then take the Skyway Train. It runs inside security. It's barely enough time.

     

  • Enough time for connection

    I am flying into Houston from New Mexico this weekend, and then have 1 hour and 19 minute layover before departing for El Salvador. Is this enough time? How long will it take to get to exit the plane and board the next flight? Thanks!

     

    That should be plenty of time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If they are in different terminals, all gates in Houston are connected inside security by the Skyway train.

    I'm flying SAN-IAH-FRA. The United flight SAN-IAH arrives at 2:39pm in Terminal C and the IAH-FRA Lufthansa flight departs at 4:10pm from Terminal D. Is this time sufficient for making the connection (bags checked through to FRA)? Can I walk or should I take the skyway train? Thanks!

     

    You can just walk. That should be plenty of time.

    IF arriving from Mexico in terminal E, after clearing customs is it possible to remain in the secured portion of terminal and to take the skyway tram to terminal A and avoid having to go through security again?

     

    You will have to go through security after you clear customs. You are outside security when you clear customs. However, you can go through security in E and then take the Skyway train to A.

    WE JUST RECEIVED NOTIFICATION OF A CHANGE IN ITINERARY AND HAVE 40 MINUTES TO TRANSFER IN IAH COMING IN FROM TORONTO AND CONTINUING TO SANTIAGO CHILE. IS THIS ENOUGH? WE WILL HAVE PRECLEARED CUSTOMS BUT WILL OUR LUGGAGE GO THROUGH TO CHILE?

     

    Yes, your baggage will go through to Chile. That is just enough time if your flight from Toronto is on-time.

    im coming from Buenos Aires with checked luggage on United with 70 mins to connect to a delta flight in IAH going to MSP. How does this work with my luggage and will I have enough time?

     

    No, that is not enough time. The minimum International to Domestic connection time in Atlanta is 90 minutes, with 2 hours recommended. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security.

    I am European, and I will be flying from Frankfurt (Germany) through Huston to Atlanta, Georgia, USA. My plane (United) will arrive at Huston at 2.10 pm and then at 3.30pm I will have United flight to Atlanta. Will 1h 20min be enough to transfer considering security, checking visa and passport and any other detailed control on the border? Is there any extra control for non-American citizens on the border? I will be thankful for reply!

     

    No, that is not enough time. The minimum International to Domestic connection time in Atlanta is 90 minutes, with 2 hours recommended. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security.

    I have an 80 minute layover from San Luis Potosi, Mexico into IAH. From there I fly to GSP. Is the 80 minutes enough to clear customs in IAH and make my connection (on X-mas eve)?

     

    I really don't think that's enough time, especially if you have checked baggage.

    Hi, I'm flying from Monterrey (Mexico) to Amsterdam by Houston. In Houston I will arrive at 14.02 in terminal A and leave at 15.35 from terminal D. I have more or less 90 minutes. Is this enought times? Thanks

     

    you will not arrive in Terminal A. No flights from Mexico arrive in Terminal A as it does not have immigration facilities. You will arrive in Terminal D. You have barely enough time. What airlines are you flying? are your tickets on one reservation or separate?

     

    With Delta, operated by Aeromexico and by KLM. My ticket are on the same reservation. The terminal are written on the ticket. Thanks for the answer.

    I am flying from LGA to Austin via IAH on United and I have a 71 minute connection. Is this enough? The flight from LGA usually arrives 20 minutes late. Will that be a problem?

     

    You should have enough time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security.

     

    Thanks a lot! Appreciate it!

    I am flying from Auckland to Houston then connecting in Houston to Toronto. Will I have to get my luggage after clearing immigaration and then go through customs again...am kind of not clear of the process. Would appreciate assistance on what I can expect upon arrival from Auckland.

     

    International to International connections in Houston are not supposed to have to claim their baggage, but double check with the agents in Auckland and Houston.
