  • is 1 hour and 35 min enouph to conect

    San Diego (SAN) to Houston (IAH) by UNITED arives at 2:35 pm Houston (IAH) to Frankfurt (FRA) Lufthansa 441Departs 4:10pm Is 1:35 min enough???

     

    United could arrive at either Concourses A, B or C, while Lufthansa departs from Concourse D. On arrival, look for the TerminaLink train sign. The train starts at Concourse A station and connects to TD - all inside security. You have enough time.

     

  • have 30 min connection is E connected to C to make a run for it?

    I am flying into IAH from HNL thurs am flt 200, arrive 815am looks like usually terminal C, flight to panama city PTY terminal E at 851 am, will i make it? (will my luggage? ;) )

     

    That time seems to be inadequate, as you need to be at your connecting gate at least 15 mins prior to departure (depending on Airline rules). At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals TA, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from TA to TD) A tunnel connects TD to TE, arriving at TE at center (gates E1-E11 left, gates E12-24 right). If you booked your 2 flights on one ticket, your bags should be automatically transferred to the connecting flight. Check with your first airline.

     

    It's possible. C and E are actually connected directly, you don't have to take a train. You should have enough time but you'll have to hurry.

     

    Thanks so much for your replies! It really helped!

    Fisrt time traveling to cancun. Traveling from boston to Houston and only have 1 hour to change planes to go to cancun. all flights are on united will this be enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E, which are connected.

     

  • Youth travelling alone from Vancouver to Charleston on United

    My 15 year old is traveling alone on United from Vancouver to Charleston with a 58 minute layover at IAH on Aug 13. How do I find out what terminals he will be flying in and out of so I can help prepare him for this first solo flight? Is 58 minutes enough time?

     

    1. On arrival at Vancouver YVR airport, after checking in, he will proceed to the U.S. Customs clearance and on to the U.S.-dedicated gate, which will be indicated on his boarding pass, as well as on the overhead screens for departing/arriving airlines. 2. At Houston IAH, United uses Terminals A, B, C & E with corresponding gates, i.e., B60. 3. I suggest you let your son make his own discovery by opening I suggest you open www.ifly.com/yvr & www.ifly.iah, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'MAPS & DIRECTIONS', and scroll down to the detailed text. Also, under 'Traveler tips' at right top, he'll find 'First-time flyer tips'. 4. His transfer time should suffice.

    58 minutes is tight but doable for the connection in IAH. He will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal B, however he will not know the exact gates until the day of his flight. The TerminaLink train connects the terminals inside security.

     

  • Terminal D to Terminal A

    What is the best way to get from Terminal D to Terminal A? How long does it take to get from D to A?

     

    Assuming you are on the secure side, take the TerminaLink train. It should be about a 10-15 minute train ride.

     

  • Limited Layover Time?

    My flight UA 128 should arrive from Brazil at 5.10am and my connecting flight is AC8103 leaving at 7am. It's only an hour and a half connection to my next flight. I'm wondering if this is enough time to make my connection which the website says is from Terminal E to Terminal A. Any advice would be useful! Thanks

     

    That should be enough time. Immigration will be pretty empty at that time. You just have to go back through security in Terminal E then take the TerminaLink train to Terminal A.

    Hi, I am arriving at Terminal E on a BA flight BA195 on 25th July and need to link up with family arriving at Terminal C UA 257 from San Diego, Can I walk from E to C?, Than ks

     

    On the secure side you can easily, but you will be funneled through immigration and out to the non-secure area in Terminal E. You can probably go through the corridor the Inter-Terminal Train uses to go back to Terminal C (or maybe even take the Inter-Terminal Train itself)

     

    Also, British Airways arrivals are in Terminal D, not Terminal E, but the instructions on how to get to C are the same.

     

  • CANCUN TO IAH THEN TO CLE

    We are flying out of Cancun on 7-26, we have only 1hr 12 min layover at IAH. Going into terminal E, then out of terminal C. Does anyone know if we will have to reclaim baggage then recheck? Ive been told that we do and we don't. Worried about not making the flight to CLE with going through customs and having to deal with baggage situation.

     

    Flying United for all flights

     

    Yes, any time you enter the US from abroad you have to claim your baggage in immigration, clear customs, and then re-check. Yes, you have a very tight connection but at least United has lots of IAH-CLE flights that you can be rebooked on.

    I am coming from Denver to IAH on United Express UA1742 and leaving on UA5914. I only have 30 minutes between flights - will I have enough time? Help..!

     

    You will have to hope your first flight is on-time and hurry. You will likely have to take the TerminaLink train from Terminal C to Terminal B. There are at least several later flights to Nashville if you miss your connection to 5914.

    Time needed to go from Terminal A to Terminal B? Will land at 12:09 on Flight 4866 Operated by EXPRESSJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS in Terminal A. Will take off from Terminal B at 12:52 with Flight 6475 Operated by Tyrolean Airways. Will I have enough time to make it to Terminal B?

     

    No flights at IAH are operated by Tyrolean Airways. Where are you flying to on your second flight?

    Is it easy to get to Terminal C arrivals from Terminal E arrivals by walking

     

    I will be arriving on BA195(term E) and meeting a flight from San Diego (UA) about 4pm(maybe term C)

     

  • How to get to terminal B?

    My friend will be on United Airlines 0128 flight from Rio de Janeiro to Houston on Saturday, July 13. She'll arrive at Terminal E on Sunday, July 14 at 5:30 AM. She will take the connecting flight UA 4505. How can she get to Terminal B? She doesn't speak English an is travelling with a 10 year old child? Another question... Can I or she order a motorized car?

     

    All she has to do is go back through security after re-checking her baggage in Terminal E and then follow the signs to the TerminaLink train and take that to Terminal B.

     

  • which terminals/gates do I arrive and depart out of
    Jul 9, 2013

    FLT 5671 from LCH to IAH tomorrow and then connecting to FLT 411 to TPA. Both operated by United. Less than an hour to catch connection at IAH

     

    5671 will likely arrive in A-North (although it could also arrive in B) and 411 will likely depart from C (although it could also depart from E). To go between terminals, take the TerminaLink train which operates on the secure side. If your first flight is On-time you'll be OK.

     

  • Enough time to connect

    I'm coming in on United Flight UA5673 from Indy at 7:57am and I only have 51 mintues to connect to my United Express Flight UA4236 to El Paso...will I have enough time to make my connection?

     

    5673 will likely arrive in Terminal B and 4236 will also likely operate from Terminal B so you should be able to easily make your connection. There's a slight chance that one flight might be in Terminal A-North. If so take the TerminaLink train between terminals. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.

     

  • I have 47 minutes in between connections at IAH - enough time?

    I will be arriving on United from OMA into IAH and have 47 minutes till a connecting flight goes to CRP (also on United). I have heard that IAH just expanded the terminals and there was some concern if I had to run from A to E terminals. Is 47 minutes enough time to make two in the continental US connections?

     

    It appears that most of the United Express flights from OMA to IAH arrive in Terminal B (the mainline flight can arrive in C or E, usually C). All the IAH-CRP flights operate from A or B. So there's a good chance both your flights will be in B. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time regardless though.
