  • Connection through customs
    Jun 3, 2013
    My daughter will be arriving from Costa Rica (looks like terminal E to me) on United and will then need to get to terminal A for a Delta flight home. She will have to get her luggage and go through customs between flights (she has nearly 3 hours). Will she have to go through security again, or can she go through customs and stay inside the secured area?


    Any time you are an international arrival to the US that has to go through immigration you have to go through security again. She will probably want to take the Intra-Terminal Train from TE to TA, then get her Delta boarding pass, check her bags, and go through security.


  • Lost item - HOW TO TRACK FLIGHT
    Jun 2, 2013
    I lost an item on a United flight this morning. How can I see where the plane went after I deplaned? I have the departure gate and tail number. Thank you for any help ...


    On Flightaware you can put in any United tail number and see where the aircraft currently is.

    does Terminalink connect these gates? My wife is flying to Houston from LAX & has never been to Houston Bush.


    She arrives at IAH at Terminal C (gates C34--42) and needs to get to Terminal B. Follow signs to the TerminaLink train station and take the train (inside security) to Terminal B arriving near gates B84-88.


    thanks for the information.


  • Making flight
    Jun 1, 2013
    My daughter arrives at terminal d and has to go through customs. Her AA flight leaves in less than an hour ( due to KLM delay) from termial B. Any chance she can make it?


    You did not state with which airline your daughter arrives at IAH. Also, she needs to double check her connecting AA flight - Terminal B (TB) is exclusively used by United & United Express. AA is in Terminal A (A gates). International Arrivals connecting to domestic flights: After customs clearance and re-checking-in bags, go straight out to the International Arrivals Lobby which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train (running inside security) taking you to your connecting terminal. (TA has gates 1-15 & 17-30 - TB has gates B68065 & B60-66. It would be extremely tight to connect, unless customs process is quick.


    AA Uses Terminal A at IAH. She will probably miss her connection, but AA has lots of IAH-DFW flights (assuming that's what she's on)

    Yes, he/she should take the TerminaLink train. It's possible but he/she will have to hurry.


  • food outside of security

    where can i eat with my sister who is here on a layover in terminal e


    Open http://www.ifly.com/george-bush-intercontinental-airport/terminal-map and click on the terminal(s) on top.


  • Knee replaced how to go fr term E to B
    May 26, 2013
    My mom is flying into term E in the AM and needs to get to term gate B81. 2.5 hr layover. Top it off, she doesn't read English well. Pls recommend best way to make the transfer.


    On arrival at Terminal E of IAH, your mother can take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from A to D). Internationally recognized signs will guide her. However, you could arrange for wheelchair pickup at arrival gate by contacting her airline. If your mother is an international arrival, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah and open 'Terminal Map' under 'Maps & Directions' for further details.


  • Change from Terminal A to D
    May 25, 2013
    I am arriving on UA from memphis and need to transfer to Turkish Airline at Terminal D. How fast can I transfer from A to D. I have 1 hr 50 min between flight. Please advise


    You take the TerminaLink train which is inside security. It should not take more than 25 minutes.


  • Connecting Terminal E to C
    May 25, 2013
    Arriving UA into Terminal E from Calgary and leaving UA Terminal C to Tampa with 1 hour connection time. Is this connecting time OK?


    Calgary has US customs clearance & baggage transfer - all you need to do on arrival at IAH's Terminal E is to take the above-ground TerminaLink train to Terminal C running inside security area. C gates after train station are C24-27, C14-23 (center) & C2-14.


    Thanks for comments but my main concern is the 1 hour connection between Terminals E and C. Is this sufficent time to make the connection?

  • Connecting between terminals C and E
    May 20, 2013
    I will be arriving from SFO into terminal C and departing 3 hs later from terminal E. Can I avoid clearing security again? In which areas should I stay? Thanks!


    Yes, you can take the TerminaLink or walk and stay within security. You have a ton of time. Just follow the signs to your next gate.

    flying into terminal B with 1 hr time to get to Terminal E. How tight is this going to be? especially as I will most likely be in the back of the first plane and one of the last to get off. I'm guess I should stay in the secure area and take the inside tram to save on time.


    Yes, you take the TerminaLink. It's doable within an hour if your first flight is on-time.


  • which terminals
    May 19, 2013
    Flight 1715 arriving IAH 12:04 connecting Flight 4173 Expressjet to Birm departs@ 12:51 Could you tell me which terminal would I be arriving at. And which terminal would my expresset be leaving from?


    Could not find your arriving flight (open http://www.fly2houston.com/0/3807990/0/0/ ) Note that ExpressJet operates some of Delta Connection & United Express flights. Flight 4173 is United departing from Terminal B, gate 84E. Since I don't know which Airline you use to arrive at IAH, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text for transfer options.


    You will arrive in C or E (probably C) and depart from A-north or B (probably B).


  • from tampa
    May 17, 2013
    We will be arriving from Tampa on 5-18 on flight 1722 and will be leaving for El Paso on flight 4263 what terminals will these be at?


    For the above they are United main for arriving flight and Express for El Paso flight. What terminals?


    Your flight from Tampa will arrive in C or E and your flight to El Paso will depart from Terminal B. You can take the TerminaLink train between the terminals.


    There are 2 Tampa flights: at 1:06 & 3:37pm both at Terminal C (no C gate number given); there are also 2 El Paso flights: at 3:15, Terminal B gate 81A, and at 1:36pm at gate T-B 84E - meaning you arrive at Terminal C and will connect to Terminal B via the inter-terminal underground train OUTSIDE of security - on arrival at TB you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting B gate.


    FRMAY - that is 100% incorrect. You can take the TerminaLink within secrity between your gates.


  • 37 minutes enough??
    May 16, 2013
    So my flight itinerary is SFO-IAH-OMA. The layover in IAH is only 37 minutes. I have conflicting terminal locations for the arrival into IAH (it is either C or E) and I believe I depart from terminal B. How long does it take to get from Terminal C to Terminal B? How long does it take to get from Terminal E to Terminal B? Will I be able to make both situation?


    United mainline flights into IAH can arrive into C or E, so you won't know until the day of your flight. C or E to B can take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes on the TerminaLink train, depending on where in C/E your arriving gate is and how close it is to the TerminaLink station.


    I need to make my way from E4 to B85 in 37 minutes at IAH. is that enough time to make it?


    If your first flight is on-time it's possible, but hurry.


    thanks! the plane actually landed about 7 minutes early so i got out when we were supposed to land. still had to hurry to the terminal, but made the flight! =)
