Hi, I'm flying with Air New Zealand and we will be arriving to Houston from Auckland. Catching a connecting flight with United to Chicago on the same ticket. Will that be enough time to clear custom, transfer to correct terminal? Lay over time is 1 hour 50minutes
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi I am wondering which connection is better: 1 hour 50 mins or 5hours transit between flight in from Auckland transferring from air NZ to United to Fort Lauderdale? thanks
1 hr 50 minutes should be possible.
Hi,

I'm wondering would I have enough time in 40 minutes to transfer from a flight from NYC to Cabo in Mexico. Both flights are with United.

Thanks in advance! 😊
It is just enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare if it's not.
Hi, I'm flying with Air New Zealand and we will be arriving to Houston from Auckland. Catching a connecting flight with United to Orlando on the same ticket. Will that be enough time to clear custom, transfer to correct terminal? Will have a 6 and 3 years old in toll.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Iam arriving to IAH from Amsterdam on KLM airline at 1:05 P in Aughst >> how much time do i need to realistically catch the next flight out of IAH to DFW?
On two separate reservations with checked bags you realistically need at least 3 hours.
Hi, I'm flying from Seattle to IAH on Spirit airlines, arriving at 7 am, then I have to get my checked baggage from baggage claim, re-check in with United, go back through security, and catch a United flight at 9:15- is there enough time for that? How do I figure out which gate I arrive and and leave from to plan ahead?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive in Terminal A. You won't know where you depart until the day of your flight. Where are you flying to on United?
Thanks for the response! I'm flying from Houston to Nicaragua. At IAH are the United check in desks also in Terminal A?
No, the check in desks you need are in Terminal E.
We have a connecting flight with 35 minutes to get from B to E. Will we have enough time
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. However, it leaves no time to spare.
If I am traveling from Puerto Vallarta to Toronto Canada via connection in IAH ......Do I go thru immigration in IAH or by pass and how much time needed .......What are the terminal changes?
You will go through US Immigration and Customs in Houston. I don't know the terminals unless you post what airline you are flying to Toronto, but you will arrive in Terminal E.
Flying United and Thank You for the info.....
Then you will depart from terminal B or C.
Hey, I am booking a flight from my local airport (MFE) to Spain with a connection in IAH and Toronto, with connections of 3 hours. Is this enough time to make my connecting flight? Any tips or recommendations?
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
I will be flying from PHX - SAP with a stop in IAH , I arrive around 9 PM and have a flight the following morning at 9 AM , can I get some advise on how to get my bags and going to security , ( UNITED AIRLINES) thank y'all
Your bags will likely not be checked through, so you will just claim them like any normal domestic flight in Houston and then re-check them in the morning.
Do you know around what time the check ins open in the morning ?
