  • 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 :)

    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
    Apr 2, 2013
    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 www.ifly.com/iah, 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.

    What terminal is Spirit Airlines at?


    What Airport?


  • Mexico - Houston - NYC
    Mar 25, 2013
    If I'm connecting at IAH, traveling by United, and I'm Mexican and have to go through Migration.. is 2 hours 10 min enough time to make it? I'm catchin a flight to NYC. Thanks in advance for the help, I'd really appreciate it :)


    That should be enough time. Once you clear immigration your flight to NY will probably leave from Terminal C, which is connected. If for some reason you miss your connection, United has lots of flights from IAH to NY, so you can be rebooked.


  • 32 mins terminal C or E to B?
    Mar 25, 2013
    I will be flying into IAH from SNA (Orange County) arriving at 7.32pm, and am wondering if I can connect to a flight to STL leaving at 8.04pm (both on United), I think leaving from Terminal B? Will I be able to make it between those terminals in 32 minutes??? Thanks


    It's not clear - are you connecting at IAH? Your message makes it look as if you are connecting at SNA. If so that's very tight but doable. You have to take the TerminaLink one stop to get from C to B. Unfortunately since it's so late in the day that would probably the last flight to STL from IAH, so if you miss your connection you'll be spending the night in Houston.


    Sorry - connecting at IAH. My route is SNA-IAH-STL. It is indeed the last flight of the day from IAH to STL.. I just wanted to know if it would be physically possible to get from C (or E, not sure where my flight from SNA is arriving at IAH), to B within the 32 mins.. Will I basically have to run? Are the trains frequent? Thanks again


    Yes, you will probably want to run, and also yes, the TerminaLink trains run very frequently


  • How do I get from Terminal A to E
    Mar 23, 2013
    I'm flying into IAH from CVG then flying out to Lima. I arrive at A and leave from E. How do I get between terminals? How long does it take? I'm from Australia and don't know this airport at all. THank you


    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, starts its service at the Terminal A station and connects from there to Terminals B, C, D/E inside security - just follow signs to the train on arrival. On arrival at TD, look for the connector to TE where you arrive in the center of the gate area with gates E1-E11 and E12-24. Estimated time: 30-40 mins.


  • 36 minutes between flights
    Mar 21, 2013
    Hi! I'm flying from Laguardia into IAH, landing at 8:27, and then our next flight to Ontario (ONT) is at 9:03. We didn't realize it was that close when we booked the tickets because United put them in a cluster. Is this doable?


    Ontario being California, not Canada, by the way.


    Yes, it's doable. Both of your flights will probably be in Terminal C.


    Thank you!

    Flight UA398 arriving 12:00 PM depart 12:45 to Charlotte on flight UA5239. Will we have enough time to make connection?


    Yes, if your first flight is on time that should be enough time, but you will have to take the TerminaLink train from Terminal C to Terminal A or B.
