Flying from Ottawa through Washington to Houston and on to Merida Mexico- is 1 hour enought time in Houston to make connections?
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa and all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, I'm flying into Houston from London and then on to Liberia, Costa Rica. Both flights are United and I have a 2 hour Layover, will I need to clear immigration and go back through security etc? Will this be enough time? Can you also tell me is this enough time and what terminals i'll be going to?
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs and Security but should not have to claim your bags since you are on an international to international connection through Houston on United. You should have enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal E.
I'm on the same sequence: LHR - IAH - LIR (all on united) as a EU citizen (with valid ESTA). there is no doubt I need to pass immigration. but do I need to collect luggage and drop it on another belt? or even go through customs with it?
I will be taking United Airline From Tokyo (NRT) to Houston (IAH) then from Houston (IAH) to Toronto (YYZ) by United Airline operated by Mesa Airlines dba United Express. Will I need to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security, then claim and re-check my bags? Thanks!
You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but you won't have to claim your bags because you are on an International to International connection all on United through Houston.
Can you show me what terminal going from domestic United arrival to international departure for air New Zealand
Very few domestic flights arrive in Terminal E. You will more likely arrive in Terminal C. Regardless, just follow signs to your departure gate in Terminal D.
Flying From San Antonio to Houston to Toronto. 40 min connection in Houston. Is this enough time??
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare if it's not.
Hello, 8 arrive in Houston at 9:38 and I leave for Pittsburg at 10:18. Is this possible?
Yes, if the first flight is on-time that is possible.
Hi,

I'm flying ORD(Chicago, IL) -> IAH(Houston, TX) -> BJX(Leon, Mexico)

Is a 90 minute layover in IAH enough? What terminal will I have to go through?
Yes, that is enough time. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal B or C. The skyway train connects all terminals inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi I'm flying from Mexico to San Jose, costa rica with a connection in IAH and have a 90 mins connection time. Both flight are United(ua 1085 then ua 1098), do I have to go through custom or change terminal? is 90 mins enough? Thank you so much for your help!
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, customs and security. You will both arrive and depart from Terminal E. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from McAllen to Houston. Then from Houston to Toronto. My concern is regarding the terminals. What terminal do I arrive in from McAllen? And what terminal do I leave from for Toronto? I have 1 hour 16 minutes to connect.
You will arrive in Terminal A or B. You will depart from Terminal A if your flight to Toronto is on Air Canada and depart from Terminal B or C if it is on United. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.
I arrive at Terminal D from Tokyo and will have to go through Passport Control (I have a Global Entry Card) and Customs and get to Terminal D to leave for Albuquerque. I have checked luggage. I have 90 minutes between flights. Will I have to go through Security? Can I make my connection?
No flights to Albuquerque depart from Terminal D. If both flights are on United you will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal B or C. 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, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
