  • C19-E21
    Apr 16, 2013
    I have only 37 minutes to get from C19-E21. Is it best to run south from C19 to C43 and then east past C45 to TE21 or take the Terminal Link to D/E station. If it is the latter how do you skirt around International Arrivals in a hurry and avoid security? Thanks


    Running is usually your best option whenever possible.

    I will need to go from gate C25 to B84N. I will have to take the TerminaLink train. Is the station for the TerminaLink close to gate C25. My husband and I both walk with canes. Our connection time is about 55 minutes. Will we make it to gate B84C in time?


    C25 is fairly close to the TerminaLink station. However, unless you are traveling today or tomorrow and looked on , you don't know specific what gate your flight will come in to (and even then it can still change). Regardless you should have enough time. If you are really worried about being able to walk that far you can call United and ask for wheelchair assistance.


  • arrive from TPA- Fly to Purto Vallarta

    Is a 1 hour lay-over enough to fly in from Tampa and fly out on International Mexico flight... What gates does United use for these flights


    Your flight from Tampa would likely arrive in C and your Puerto Vallarta flight would depart from C or E, which are all connected beyond security. If your first flight is on-time, an hour would be enough.

    I can't find the terminal my flight tonight to Turkey, flight 34/7.50pm?


    Turkish just began service to IAH last week and the maps haven't been updated yet. They use Terminal D.


    Thank you for heads up


    Do you know how "soon" they open the counter so I can check my bag? I have a long 8 hour connection (from noon till 7.50pm)


  • Making a connection between terminals
    Apr 9, 2013
    I am arriving at terminal E at 1140am and need to catch a flight at 1:00pm at terminal B. How long does it take to get from E to B? Is there a tram that you can take to get between terminals faster?


    Yes, the Terminalink train will take you between terminals on the secure side and the Inter-Terminal Train connects the terminals on the non-secure side (which you might want to use if you are an international arrival)


  • gate confusion
    Apr 9, 2013
    i arrive at c44, leave at B84J, can't find it on the map?


    On arrival at IAH at Terminal C, take the above-ground TerminaLink train to Terminal B, which will arrive in the post-security area. look for signs to gates B84-88.


  • Terminal D tp E
    Apr 8, 2013
    I have a Global Entry appointment on the gate side of Terminal E, but am departing from Terminal D. Can I go through security in Terminal D and then walk across to Terminal E all on the secure side?


    I'm fairly sure you can

    I'm arriving at IAH from MCO I have a connection to GDL do I go straight to the terminal or is there something I need to do


    Go straight to the gate for your GDL flight. Take the TerminaLink train if necessary.


    Thanks Alot :)


  • Please help

    I will be arriving in Houston at 8:20am at gate c and departing to Guadalajara at 8:55am at gate E do I have enough time or should I be worried?


    That's a pretty tight connection - but those gate areas are fairly close to each other. If your first flight is on time you should be able to make it. Also, United has more IAH-GDL flights later in the day if you miss that one. Also, It appears most United IAH-GDL flights leave from B, not E, in which case you would have to take the TerminaLink train.


    About how long will it take me to walk from C to E?


    It depends where in C to where in E, but probably 10-20 minutes.


  • Gate B83 to B84L
    Apr 2, 2013
    Thank you so very much, according to a map of IAH, they look much farther apart. This knowledge comforts me because my husband and I are both handicapped in terms of lengthy walking.


  • Terminal B
    Apr 2, 2013
    How long to go from gate B83 to B84L. Is it do able in 50 minutes


    Those gates are pretty much next to each other - should take less than 5 mins.


    Sorry, not next to each other, but still a very short walk - maybe 5 mins.


  • Turkish Airlines

    In which terminal is Turkish Airlines located?


    At IAH, Turkish Airlines arrives today from Frankfurt at Terminal D.


    Thank you. It's strange that Turkish Airlines is not found in the list of IAH airlines? Do all departing flights leave from Terminal D? I'll be taking one to Istanbul.


    I am looking for arrival information on Turkis Airlines.. It says arriving @ Terminal A?? would the passengers take the tram to got o passport control and customs?


    Turkish Airlines began service to IAH yesterday, so the website hasn't been updated yet. At IAH, all international arrivals on carriers other than United arrive at D. The gate areas at A aren't large enough for widebody aircraft, so Turkish's website is wrong.


    Thakyou very much for the clarification!!


  • Terminal B to C
    Mar 29, 2013
    I will be flying landing at 8:26 on United Express (term B?) & depart at 9:09 United (term C?). Last time I travelled United our connection gate was closed 10 min to departure and we were bumped off the flight even though we were at the gate prior to 'departure time' (SanFran). On the express jet I believe they will put my rolling carryon below as they do not have the large overheads - so I will have to wait for it to be brought up. This combined with changing terminals in an unfamiliar airport in Houston has my worried. What are my odds at making the connection this time? :-) Thank you!


    I should have specified these are domestic morning flights through IAH.


    United uses Terminals A, B, C & E at IAH - your ticket /boarding pass should indicate your gate number (i.e., C14). The above-ground TerminaLink train connects the terminals inside security. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. 30 mins transfer time should suffice.


    My e-ticket does not cite terminals/gates. I did look at the map...hence my apprehension as it requires a change of buildings.


    Expressjet flights usually arrive from A&B and United Mainline flights depart from C, since you're domestic it will probably depart from C. As you said regarding your concerns about gate checked bags, you will really have to hurry and hope your first flight is on-time. At least you will be traveling in the morning when there's a better chance things will be running on time and when there are likely better chances to be rebooked if you miss your connection.
