How long would it take to walk from one side of the terminal to the other side where the tram between terminals is?
in B - probably less than 10 minutes. C could be up to 15 minutes.
Hi. I am flying United from VPS to IAH. Then on a separate ticket from IAH to Auckland New Zealand on Air NZ. After collecting my luggage at the domestic terminal how do i get to Air NZ check in at international terminal?
Thanks for your help.
You take the Subway Train (it runs outside security in an underground hallway)
Hi I am flying Air New Zealand to Houston then flying United Express to CHS on separate tickets. Which terminal do I go to to check my bags for United Express flight? Can I do it at United recheck after immigration or do I need to go to a different terminal? How long does it take to walk from terminal D/E to B? Thanks
You will likely depart from Terminal B. You have to take it your bags to a United check-in counter. You can take the subway train outside security from E to B. It should take about 15 minutes.
I am flying to Costa Rica from Boston with a 52 minute layover in IAH. Is 52 minutes enough time between flights to make it to the second leg? Both flights are United. Thank you!
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do on the way to Costa Rica is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, flying from COS via IAH to FRA/Germany. Connecting time in IAH will be only 1:00. Is that realistic? Thanks.
Yes, all you have to do on the way to Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
Coming from PDX to IAH and then on to GCM - anyone know if these two gates? We have a 2 hour layover. Thanks!
You will arrive in Terminal C or E and depart from E. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
I bought a United Airlines flight from Cancun to Munich, that have a 1h 20min layover in Hudson, It is enough time to change flight? I have to recheck my luggage again in Hudson?

Thanks :)
You don't have to claim and re-check your bags but you do have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
5-10 minutes.
LAS to SJU on United with connection in IAH - the connection is 1 hour, 15 min - baggage is checked.

Enough time?
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That is enough time.
Does IAH have busses that carry passengers and luggage from Terminal A to Terminal D? I am leading a mission team this weekend landing on Delta at Terminal A and need to move them and their luggage from Terminal A to Terminal D quickly...
There is a train that runs outside security underground called the "SubWay" It isn't heavily used so you can jam a lot of bags on it.
I've done the train before. I need the bus if possible because we have 16 people plus luggage and the walk from the train upstairs to check in at D is quite a walk...
There is no shuttle bus between terminals. I guess if you have a lot of time you could take the shuttle bus to the rental car center and then change to a different bus back to Terminal D.
