  • Quick layover
    Mar 8, 2013
    We are flying with United fromToronto to IAH then on to Ixtapa on April 8...all with United. My ticket does not say which terminal yet. Our layover is 37 minutes!! When we will know the terminal and will we be able to get from one to the other in time?


    You likely will both arrive and depart from Terminal B as both of those markets are served by United Express from IAH. As such your connection will be an easy one.


    thank you for your feedback, much appreciated!


  • UAL 47 from FRA to UAL 1178 in 2.5hrs?
    Mar 6, 2013
    Hi there, I have a checked bag and have to connect from UAL 47 from Frankfurt to UAL 1178 to SFO. Due to delays it appears I have around 2hrs and 45 mins to do this. Not being familiar with this airport and their customs, can I expect to make this connection in the time allowed?


    That should be plenty of time.


  • Domestic to Int'l flight/Connection time
    Mar 5, 2013
    Hi, I'm flying in UA517 from DC (IAD) and flying out UA819 to Buenos Aires, Argentina. 1) Is 1.20 minutes enough time to connect flights? 2) Do you know which are the gates for those flights? 3) Do i have to go through security at IAH again? Thanks!!!


    You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight but they will be in Terminal C or E which are walkable. You will not have to go through security again in IAH on your way down.


    Thank you very much! Yes, I meant 'Terminal' not gate... =)


  • Connection time
    Mar 6, 2013
    Hey, only to be sure about the connection time: I arrive at terminal C (LAS-IAH) and depart from terminal D (IAH-FRA, international), connection time is 1.20. I have never been to IAH, so I have no idea how it is like. Is that enough to get the plane? thanks!!


    That should be enough time, it's not a difficult connection.


  • Not the best service

    People are rude at McDonald's in Houston.


  • Terminal Connection times
    Mar 3, 2013
    My daughter arrives to IAH at 8:20 am from Dallas on American Airlines at Terminal A and needs to get to group check in at United Airlines Terminal E and fly out at 9:45 she only has a carry on. Is this enough time? Is there a best way to do it?


    She can take the Terminalink (inside security) or Intra-Terminal Train (outside security). She has enough time, but only barely.


  • quick connection
    Mar 3, 2013
    hi. i will arrive from XNA on expressjet at 4:59pm mar. 29 and need to be on united airline flight 4160 at 5:30pm. Can anyone tell me what gates or terminal to head for??? Thanks.


    EpressJet currently operates as Delta Connection and United Express. Delta uses Terminal A, United uses Terminals A, B & C. On arrival, look at overhead screen to find your flight and gate number. Then take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, inside security. Hurry if you need to change terminals.


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal C


  • Enough time for connecting flight?
    Mar 1, 2013
    I've never been to this airport before and am arriving in terminal B with a connecting flight to Cancun in terminal E...the layover is 58 minutes...can someone please tell me if this is enough time before I book my flight?? Thanks!


    On arrival at IAH, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E. Then follow signs to E gates (The left-side gateway extension has gates E1 through gates E11, while to the right are gates E12 to E24.)


  • 30 minutes to get to next flight
    Feb 26, 2013
    Hi. I just realized we have 30 minutes to get to the next gate on our flight from Chicago (ORD) to Panama City (PTY) on 3-30-13 with a layover in Houston. Can anyone give me an idea if this is even possible? I booked thru Travelocity, so I assumed this was doable otherwise I would not have been able to book this flight. Does any one know the gate numbers that my flight might arrive at and depart from? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated! Andy...


    I'm assuming both of your flights are on United. Your arrival will be into terminal C or E and your Panama City flight will probably depart from E.


  • 45 Min Connection for Cancun Flight
    Feb 25, 2013
    My family and our 2 toddler are flying from BWI to IAH and have a 45 min layover to connect with our United Flight to Cancun. Will we be able to make the connection? Is there a way to know if we are in the same terminal or not? Moving quickly with 2 toddlers is not easy since we have to wait for our stroller to be brought up etc.


    Your Cancun flight will depart from Terminal E and your Baltimore flight will arrive into C or E, both of which are fairly close to one another. If your flight is on time, you can make your connection. Also, during this time of year there are many flights from Houston to Cancun, so if you miss your connection and aren't currently on the last flight, chances are you can be rebooked.


  • connection between terminal a and b
    Feb 23, 2013
    with a 50 minute layover what is quickest way to get from terminal a to terminal b and will I have time?


    On arrival at IAH, TA, take the above-ground TerminaLink train to TB.


  • 40 minute connection
    Feb 23, 2013
    how long is walk from C gates to Terminal E gates & if I'm connecting on UAL flight do I go through security?


    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security and runs a continuous loop. You can also walk Between C & E gates - I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Limited Time
    Feb 16, 2013
    My brother is mentally challenged is there any help at the airport to get him from Terminal A to Terminal B, he only has 45 minutes.


    While Terminals A & B are close together, and the above-ground TerminaLink train starts its round at TA inside of security (next stop TB), you should contact his airline ahead of departure. Also, you may want to contact IAH Airport's Administrative Office at 281-230-3100.


  • connection to cozemul
    Feb 12, 2013
    arriving from omaha nebraska connecting to cozemul with only about 30 minutes, how far and how much time will it take?


    forgot to say it is on united airlines expressjet


    I'm assuming your connection is in Houston (IAH). That's a very tight connection but doable. Your flight from Omaha will probably arrive in B-north and the Cozumel flight will probably leave from Terminal E. Take the TerminaLink train. Hopefully your flight from Omaha is on time.


  • Which terminal?
    Feb 13, 2013
