  • international to domestic transfer time
    Oct 12, 2014
    Arrive from Costa Rica on United UA1517 at 7:38pm and depart for San Francisco on UA1178. It has 1 hour 27 min for transfer. Is that enough time? Thank you.


    That is slightly below the minimum connection time but you should be OK. If you do miss your connection United operates many IAH-SFO flights but I don't know if there will be one later than the 9PM flight you're already booked on.


    Do you know the terminals? Thank you!


    You will arrive in E and depart from C.


    We are flying from toronto to belize, through IAH. We will on.y have one hour connection time. Is that enough time? Do we have to go throug customs?

    We will arrive with UA59 from AMS at 13.45 and our connection to SFO will leave at 15.28 UA404. UA shortened our connection with 20 minutes. Makes me a little nervous, I would hate missing our flight to SFO. Which terminal will we arrive and depart? How do we travel between these terminals?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal C, which is directly connected to E. Upon arrival you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with United, then go through security.

    Im arriving to IAH at 19:40 from Istanbul, Turkey at terminal D and have a connecting flight to MSY from terminal B at 9:16. can i make it?


    i mean 20:16


    Arriving at 19:40 terminal D from Turkey and going to New Orleans from terminal D(united) at 21:16. can i make the flight to MSY?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Your flight to New Orleans will actually operate from Terminal B or C. However, all terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.

    Arriving from GCM to IAH at 7:44 pm on Dec 31st Will I be able to clear customs and make my connecting flight IAH to SAT departing at 9:05 pm? - All United Airlines flights)


    That is below the minimum allowed connection time. however, I doubt there are any later flights to San Antonio so you might as well try it.

    My flight arrives at terminal B 9:18am and departs from terminal E at 10am - is this enough time??


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The TerminaLink Train connects all Terminals inside security. Also, your flight from DCA will arrive in Terminal C, not Terminal B. Terminal C is directly connected to Terminal E.


    Great, thank you!


  • Calgary to Fort Myers connection 45 min in Houston, is that enough tim
    Sep 18, 2014
    Calgary flight to Fort Myers connects in Houston. Only 45 min between flights. Is that enough time to get from Terminal A to C?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. The TerminaLink train connects all Terminals inside security.


  • 35 minute connection?
    Sep 17, 2014
    San Antonio to Houston - 35 minute connection for a Houston - NY (LGA) flight - is that possible?


    Yes, it is possible if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Toronto - Houston - Zihuatanejo
    Sep 18, 2014
    Connection time through Houston 1 Hr 2 Min. Do "In Transit" passengers have to clear Customs and Immigration at IAH or is this done in Toronto? Do I have to go through Security at Houston? (Shoes, belts off etc.) Is 1 Hr 2 Min enough time? Traveling on United. Which Terminals will be involved? Thanks.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal B or E. All Terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. 1 hr 2 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Thanks ZAP


  • Global Entry interview location
    Sep 16, 2014
    I arrive from Tokyo at Terminal E at 13:45 and will have a boarding pass for a domestic flight out of Terminal C already in hand. I have a long layover and am wondering whether it is possible to do the Global Entry interview before going through immigration and re-checking my bags, or whether I have to do all that, go back through security, and then loop back from Terminal C to E. Any advice?


    If the office is in the secure area, you will have to go through Immigration, customs, recheck, and security first. However you can go through security in Terminal E, go to the interview, and then go to C for your departing flight.


  • Time to transfer Terminal E arrival to terminal B depart
    Sep 15, 2014
    We land with a group of 20 at 14.10 terminal E and depart on a domestic flight at 16.04 from terminal B - any advice....I know it's going to be a bit tight


    Yes, that should be enough time. Just follow the procedures in Terminal E, go through Immigration, claim bags, go through customs, re-check bags, then go through security and take the TerminaLink train to B. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK.


  • time to change planes
    Sep 15, 2014
    Whats the recommended average minutes to change planes in Houston ??


    For Domestic to Domestic or Domestic to International the minimum time is 30 minutes but 45 minutes is more comfortable. For International to Domestic or International to International 90 minutes is required.

    I'm flying United UA5897 from KC arriving IAH at 9:16 AM, connecting to United UA201 leaving for Honolulu at 10:00 AM. Any idea which terminal I will land in and leave from?


    You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Terminal A to C
    Sep 14, 2014
    We will be arriving in terminal A and going to terminal C. How long will it take to get there?


    10-15 minutes. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Connecting to Turkey at terminal D
    Sep 12, 2014
    Today I will be arriving to Houstons airport fron Mex terminal D. I need to catch another flight to turkey Terminal D what shall I do with my baggagge? I do not have my boarding pass


    You will have to claim your baggage to pass through US Customs. If you purchased separate tickets you will then have to take it to the Turkish Airlines check-in counter to check for your flight to Istanbul. I hope you have at least 2.5 hours for your connection because that is what is necessary.
