  • Transit Visa
    Mar 18, 2014
    We are flying from London Heathrow to Houston before taking a connecting flight to Cancun. Do we need a transit visa for this? Thanks.


    Are you a UK Citizen? The US doesn't require visas for UK citizens for stays shorter than 90 days.


    Yes, thanks.


    You will need an ESTA. Google it. Apply on line. Cost is $14.


  • Change terminals
    Mar 5, 2014
    Flying from Boston to Houston on United, change planes in Houston for Guadalajara to ExpressJet Arilines doing business as United Express. Which terminal will I land, and which terminal will I depart?


    You will likely arrive in Terminal C (possibly E) and you will depart from Terminal B. The TerminaLink Train connects all Terminals inside security.


  • Connection time is 40mins, flying from Fort Myers - Calgary
    Feb 24, 2014
    Would this be enough time, unfortunately I don't have the Terminals. Thank you


    I have found out that arriving and departing from Terminal C,,, so 40mins would be OK for transit time? Thnx again


    40 mins should suffice.


  • CUN to LAX - enough time for connecting flight?
    Feb 23, 2014
    Hi. I'm flying from Cancun to Los Angeles with a lay over in IAH of only 1hr 10 mins (United). My itiniery says I arrive IAH in Terminal E and depart out of Terminal C. Is this enough time? Do I have to go through Customs out of E and then through Securtiy in C?


    Yes you will have to go through immigration and customs in E then go through security and to your departure gate which will likely be in C. It will be hard to do that in just 75 mins but united has lots of flights to LAX if you miss your connection.


  • 1 hour 15 min layover arriving from Narita
    Feb 21, 2014
    Will one hour and 15 minutes be enough time to catch my connecting flight at IAH to San Antonio? Coming from Narita, Japan. Arriving at Terminal C, connecting flight at Terminal B. Please help mE!!!


    Yes your time should be sufficient. NOTE: International arrival at IAH come n at either Terminals D or E. From there they go through secure corridors, walk across the sky bridges to adjoining Federal Inspection Services (FIS), where they will claim baggage & clear U.S. Customs. If continuing your journey, re-check in your baggage at the recheck counters and proceed to the Arrivals Lobby, where an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train will take you to your connecting terminal B. Then follow signs to Concourse gates (check overhead screens for your flight & gate number). Note: Level 2 of TB has access to Concourse B gates at NE, NW, SE & SW: (a) Northeast (NE) concourse with gates B84-91; Northwest (NW) Concourse with gates B76-83; (b) Southeast (SE) Concourse with gates B17-20 & Southwest (SW) Concourse with gates B21-31.


  • stopover time
    Feb 17, 2014
    I'm flying on United Airlines from MCO to MEX, with a stopover time of 1h8m, will this be a sufficient amount of time? Thank you!


    Yes, all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate (which will be in Terminal C or E) and your departure gate, which will be in Terminal E. Terminals C and E are connected directly.


  • Connecting flight
    Feb 16, 2014
    Sorry for not including the time on the last post. The transfer time is one hour 23 minutes at IAH. The flight no. is UA1628. Do I have enough time to catch UA1502 to GUA ?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time since all you have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am flying from SMF to GUA via IAH through United Airline on April 17. Do I have enough time to make the connection?


    At IAH, United uses terminals /gates TA, TB, TC, & TE. Hour ticket should indicate terminal /gate. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    How much time do you have? You will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E, which are connected directly.


  • need help with connecting info
    Feb 10, 2014
    I usually never fly with connections as I try to get non stop but I am going from Knoxville to las vegas and have no other choice. I want to avoid charlotte, Chicago, DC, and anything north of Knoxville for that matter. I have united 4123 to Houston and connecting to united 1697 to las vegas with 1 hour and 4 minute layover if everything goes as planned. I have never been to Houston airport before so can someone shed some light on this flight and let me know what I need to expect to make my connecting flight on time. Also, if I miss the connection, are there plenty of flights during the day that I can change to going to vegas? This flight is for February 11th. Thanks so much for any help!


    You will likely arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C. All Terminals at IAH are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. United has six more flights after 1697 on Feb 11 that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection (and Tuesday flights to Vegas usually aren't completely full).


  • United Airlines Flight 4130
    Feb 7, 2014
    Please advice if there are people that can help my wife on United Airlines Flight 4130 , she is carrying several pieces of luggage and a 2 YO boy, seems a little too much for a single 5' 2 woman to carry, she landed at terminal D and will need to get to terminal B or so I read on her Columbus, OH bound flight... is it complicated to move between terminals?? Please advice


    Were her tickets bought on a single reservation? If so after customs she should be able to re-check her bags and therefore not have to take them with her to her departure Terminal. Also, even if she does have to go to the United ticket counter to check her bags, she can do that in Terminal E, which is connected to D, rather than having to take them all the way to B. She can then go through security in E and take the TerminaLink train to B.


    I bought the tickets for her , she flew in from GDL MX and landed, I have been in and out many times from IAH but can not remember if there is a shuttle , which you just confirmed there is. I guess after clearing customs she will need to go get her luggage and turn it in to the airline as you mentioned, I am just wondering if there are airline (United) people that can help with the luggage, and if the E to B will not take long.


    Yeah, if it's all on united she can just re-check her bags after she clears customs, she won't have to take everything to B with her. There are carts in Immigration that she can use in between claiming her baggage and re-checking it with United.


  • On flight 667
    Feb 6, 2014
    Will flight 667 make it on time to catch flight 570 to san francisco


    Today? Probably. there will still be almost an hour between flights and they're both in Terminal C.


  • Belize to Montreal
    Feb 6, 2014
    Hi, im flying from belize to montreal and im wondering if 1.5 hours is enough for my connection in IAH. Also if someone could talk me through the steps ill have to take that would be great! My flights are with united airlines.


    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, then go through US Customs. Then re-check your bags with United at the re-check desk, then go up to the departure level and go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in Terminal C which is connected to Terminal E.


    Also, 90 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • can i make this??
    Feb 3, 2014
    arriving on United flight, terminal b with 30 min to departure in terminal c, united flight to Calgary. can i make it?


    Yes, it's possible, but doesn't leave any time for delays. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • LHR to IAH to MCO
    Feb 3, 2014
    Am arriving via BA from LHR at 1430. Connecting on United Airlines to MCO at 15.40. I have 2 kids, 11 and 8. Will I have enough time?? Any help appreciated.


    That will be a very difficult connection. Did you buy both tickets on one reservation? You will arrive in Terminal D, have to clear immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, and re-check your baggage, then get your United boarding passes, go through security and to Terminal C for departure. That is very hard to do in only 70 minutes.


  • Connection possible?
    Feb 2, 2014
    UA 4438 from Hobbs, NM is scheduled to arrive in B @ 9:25am. Connecting flight UA201 to Honolulu is scheduled to depart @ 10am in E. My husband can't run. Will we be able to make the connection?


    Does not look good - At IAH the above-ground TerminaLink train inside security starts at Terminal A station & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E (a 30 mins transfer); from there you would need another few minutes. (At TE, gates to the left are E1- E11, to the right gates E12- E24.)


    30 minutes is a bit long. 20 is more reasonable. Your flight from Hobbs could also get in early. If you miss your connection United will re-book you to Hawaii through Los Angeles, Denver, or San Francisco.
