  • is skyline on level 2
    Sep 1, 2016
    If I arrive on a domestic flight from SHV, do I arrive on level 1 and then go up to level 2 to skywalk?


    The "level" the skyway is on depends on which terminal you are in. There are signs to the Skyway.


  • Inbound from Chile connecting to flight to Canada
    Aug 31, 2016
    Will 90 minutes be enough time to arrive at Terminal E (from Chile) and connect to a departing flight in Terminal A (to Canada) ?


    That's not impossible, but it will be very difficult.


  • Connection is 40 minutes

    I am arriving IAH at 6:30am in Terminal A and my flight is departing from Terminal C at 7:10am. I did see on flightaware that my arriving flight has been early Can I make that?


    If both flights are United/United Express that is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I am flying from Denver to Houston to then board to Amsterdam...arriving Terminal D United 545 and departing Terminal E United 20 but only have 45 min. Will I make it in time?


    You do not arrive in Terminal D. You will arrive in Terminal C. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I'm arriving to IAH, Terminal E from Munich, then have a flight from terminal B to Aguascalientes, Mexico - do I need to go through immigration and customs ?


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, customs, and security then take the Skyway train to Terminal B.

  • Connection time is enough?

    Hi I'm Italian and I'm travelling from Guadalajara Mexico to IAH, have 1 hour 23 minutes for the flight to Europe all with United Airlines, is that enough time?


    That is not realistically enough time for an International to International connection at IAH unless the flight from Guadalajara is early. You have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.


  • Clear customs?

    I am flying United from Naples, Italy to Munich, to IAH. I have only a 1 hr. 40 min. layover before heading to Memphis. Is this going to be enough time to get through customs?


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

  • Vancouver to Santiago Via Houston
    Aug 23, 2016
    Hi, is 50 minutes enough time to arrive from Vancouver Canada (will already have cleared US customs in Vancouver) and get on a connecting flight to Santiago. Flying United. Thanks


    Yes, all you have to do in Houston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time?

    Hi I am flying from South Africa to BJX (Mexico) via IAH. I will be arriving on an Emirates flight at 15:45 on a Saturday and the flight to BJX using United is departing at 19:10. would that be enough time to get through customs and get to the next flight? Thanks for the help


    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to bring your bags yourself from Customs to the United check-in desk to re-check your bags if you purchased two separate reservations.


  • Cancun - las vegas
    Aug 22, 2016
    Hi I am a British citizen flying from cancun with U.A to Las Vegas with a stop over connection in Houston of 1hr 23mins is this long enough to make my connection I land at 1.07 pm and depart 2.30 pm


    That is not realistically enough time. The minimum International to domestic connection time in Houston is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended. They will rebook you on their next available flight to Vegas if you miss your connection, however, depending on the day of the week you are traveling that could be awhile as flights to Las Vegas are typically very full.


    Thanks for your reply i arrive on a Sunday, I am not flying until next July do you recommend I try and change my connection now.


    Chances are the schedule of your flights will change before next July anyway, so I would not pay a change fee at this point. If the schedule changes, you can call United and get changed to a longer connection without paying a change fee.


    Thanks zap for your very helpful information fingers crossed for a schedule change


  • Need help with time management!

    If I am on a United flight from Indianapolis to Houston then on to Belize City will 1 hour and 12 minutes be enough of a layover to make my next flight?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate. the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Auckland > Houston > NYC
    Aug 20, 2016
    I'm flying Auckland to Houston on Air NewZealand, then onto NYC - my flight from Auckland arrives at 12.30pm and I'm looking at a 2.20pm flight to NYC (American Airlines), will that be enough time to clear customs and make it to the gate?


    Since American and Air New Zealand don't have an interline agreement, you can't simply drop your bags at the recheck desk. You'll have to walk to the American desk and check it in. This is not enough time, in all likelihood. You need at least 2h10m in this situation to safely guarantee that you'll make the flight. I reccomend that you choose a later American flight, or fly United, as they do have an interlude agreement with Air New Zealand, so you would only need 1h45m for the connection.


    thank you!
