    Hi I am coming in to IAH 13:55 from moscow on singapore airline, then need to transfer to terminal A american airline to DFW at 16:40, is 2 hy 40 min enough for immigration, train to terminal A and re check in?


    You will actually arrive in Terminal D. Yes, that should be enough time. The Inter-Terminal train runs underground outside security.

    Hi , I am connecting in IAH with a lay over of 2 hr 21 mins. I'm flying from Vancouver , B.C. and on to Peru aboard United ,both flights. Is this sufficient time to change planes?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Customs and Immigration in Vancouver so all you will have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in C and depart from E. They are directly connected inside security.

    Hi, is 1 hr 20 min enough time for getting immagrations and customs before connecting flight to LAX? I'm arriving IAH from AMS and flying all flights with United.


    That is below the minimum connection time for an International -> Domestic transfer at IAH, but it may be possible if your flight from Amsterdam is on-time or early.

    Saturday arrival United 1261 at 1:40 pm from Orlando....leave United 480 at 2:25 pm to Seattle. Nervous about the short connection time. Currently seats are at rear of plane with carryon. Thoughts and ideas?


    45 minutes isn't that short. Both flights should be in Terminal C. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    my daughter is travelling from Europe to Mexico City via IAH. She holds a UK passport. Does she need to go through the immigration/bag pickup/dropoff process and does she require an ESTA for the short layover between arriving on KLM and departing on Aeromexico? Thanks very much


    All international arrivals at US airports go through FIC process. No ESTA requirement. I suggest to open www.ifly.com/iah, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text, including 'International Arrivals' and Terminal Details.

    Hi, Is 43 minutes enough time in IAH to switch from an incoming United flight from San Jose to an outbound United flight to Frankfurt? Thanks


    Yes, it is enough time if your first flight is on-time but leaves little time for delays. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E which is directly connected to C.

    I am coming in from Toronto airport and have 1hr to connect to Guatemala. I am flying with United Airlines and was wondering if I would need to claim baggage or go through customs before connecting.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. Your arrival into IAH will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    My flight from LAX arrives at IAH at 7:50 pm connecting flight to SCL(Santigo Chile) is 1 hour and 15 min later will I be able to make this connection? do I have have to go back through security and get my luggage???


    No, assuming both of your flights are on United you do not have to go through security or do anything with your baggage, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate, which will likely be in Terminal C to your departure gate in Terminal E. C and E are directly connected.


  • Terminal E to the Marriott Hotel
    Jul 30, 2014
    I'll be checked in at Terminal E on Friday, but need to print out some docs. How long will it take me to get to the Marriott Hotel Business Center. Is it possible? Thanks in advance :)


    THe Inter-Terminal train goes to the marriott - it will take maybe 20 minutes each way.

    Arriving UA from LHR connecting to CUN do I have to collect checked baggage and re-check for the onward flight? I am told it would be checked all the way through from LHR


    I recently found out that IAH is part of a pilot program where most passengers traveling on a single International->International connecting itinerary do not have to claim their baggage to go through US Customs. However, please double check this with the United agent in London.

    Flight 4540 wil arrive at 8:19pm and my connecting flight 350 to SFO will leave 53 minutes later at 9:12 pm. Is 53 minutes enough time to transfer flights?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from terminal C or E. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.
