  • C and E connected to the SOUTH?
    Jan 8, 2013
    1
    I've read that they are connected to the north, but what about between C-43 to 45 and E10?

     

    At IAH, if arriving at gates C29-45 and transferring to Terminal E: walk towards gates C14-24 and proceeds straight on to TE. Gates E1-11 and E12-24 are on opposite sides.

    How long does it take from terminal A to terminal E

     

    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, starts its service at the Terminal A station, & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security - should not take more than 10 mins.

     

  • British Airways to United
    Dec 22, 2012

    My daughter arrives this evening at IAH on British Airways. After going thru immigration and customs and getting her bags, where can she check in at Untied and how does she get to terminal B. She has 2 hours.

     

    she will take the terminallink train from concourse C to B. it won't take long

     

    Can she re check her bags at the international terminal? Or will she have to take them with her to B? She is switching to United

     

    Also she is coming into E not C

     

    1. British Airways is in Terminal D of IAH; United uses Terminals A, C & E. 2. If British does not transfer bags to United (check) she needs to take her bags after customs clearance to the Terminal where her United flight departs from and check it in at the Departures level with United. Her boarding pass should indicate terminal and/or gate: TA has gates 1-30; TB has Gates B60-88; TC has gates C29-45; TE has gates E1-24. 3. International arrivals go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby; there take escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to TA, TB, TC & the tunnel to TD. At connecting terminal she will have to go through passport control before proceeding to her gates.

     

    Thank you. BA did not tag her bags home but you think they might transfer them after she reclaims them? If not can she get a baggage cart on the train? The flight lists her arrival at terminal E but from the map it does not look like a huge difference.

     

    Both Terminals E & D have separate customs clearances. She will need to take her bag down to the inter=-terminal train, which does NOT allow carts - but I assure you she will manage just fine, on arrival she needs to head straight for the departures level and the United counter, checking in her bag. She has plenty of time!

    how long does it take to go from terminal E to C

     

    The gate area has, to the left, a connecting walkway to Terminal C, which has in the center gates C14-23 and C24-C27 & C2-14 at either side.

     

  • Get from E to A

    Wife and daughter arrive UA1129 12:54 gate E-11, depart AA1300 2:00 A-27. How do they get to Terminal A? thank you.

     

    I presume they arrive at IAH from an international flight - if so, they need to proceed to the International Arrivals Building (follow signs) and go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminals A, B & C. HOWEVER, if UA does not transfer bags to AA flight (find out) - they would have to take their bag, after customs clearance, to Terminal A and check them in with AA at their counter, before proceeding to their gate. In both instances, they need to go through security check first. They should be able to make it on time.

     

    They made it. Thank you for your help.

     

  • Get from B to C?

    My son is trying to connect quickly to catch a flight from B terminal to C terminal at IAH? How do you do this the fastest way?

     

    On arrival at IAH at Terminal B, your son should look for the above-ground TerminaLink train sign and board the train to Terminal C. The train runs continuously between the terminals inside security. Terminal C has 3 gateways for gates C29 to C33, gates C34 to C42, and gates C43 to C45. (the overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight number & gate.

     

  • Connection time International Flights

    Is 1 hour-10 minutes enough if arriving AIR CANADA EXPRESS - JAZZ –from Toronto Flight 8540 - Operated by United Airlines Landing: 7:08 PM, Fri, Mar 1 Connect United Airlines - Flight 1426 - 1 h 6 m Take-off: 8:20 PM, Fri, Mar to Merida, Mexico (MID)

     

    Make sure you go through US Customs clearance at Pierson Airport - thereafter you will be considered to be a domestic arrival at IAH. Air Canada uses Terminal A, United uses Terminals A, B & C, all with corresponding gates. Your bags will be automatically transferred, so all you need to do on arrival is to check the overhead screens for your departing flight number & gate and take the above-ground TerminaLink train (follow signs) running inside the secured areas of the terminals. You have sufficient time.

     

    My granddaughter is a smart 16 year old travelling alone. Do you recommend that she be airline accompanied or are the indications clear and easy to follow?

     

  • 45 minute international connection

    I"m flying into IAH on 12/18 on flight #UA4391X with a 45 minute connection to London Heathrow flight #UA34. Can you tell me what terminal I will arrive and which one I will depart from? And how to get from one to the other?

     

    United uses Terminals A, B & C (with corresponding gates - your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight number & departure gate. On arrival at IA take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security.

    grandma arv at gate 19 terminal C 2:19pm local time & connection is at gate 2 terminal A depart time 3:35p... is there enough time

     

    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train starts its service at the Terminal A station and connects Terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security, - giving her enough time for transfer.

     

  • Connection from Terminal C to Terminal B

    My wife and our 2 year old daughter will have 45 minutes to connect from arriving flight in Terminal C to departing flight in Terminal B. Will they have enough time and how do they go?

     

    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train starts its service at the Terminal A station and connects Terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security. Note: TB has gates B68-75, B60-66; and the TerminaLink train station is near gateway to gates B76-83A and gateway to gates B84-88. 45 mins is tight, but she should be able to make it if she will be the first one out of the plane.

     

  • going to Vancouver

    I will be flying in to Houston from Lima, Peru on Saturday Dec 15th at 6:15am and leave for Vancouver ( YVR) at 5:50PM on flight 1700 with United airlines. Any idea which gate I will likely be leaving from? I'm trying to book with an airport lounge and want to book one near my departure gate! Thanks for any help! And tips on great airport lounges with showers would be helpful!

     

    1. At IAH United uses Terminals A, B, C & E. 2. If your incoming flight is not by United, you would need to find out if this airline will transfer your bags to your connecting United flight - if not, you would need, after customs, take your bag along to your connecting terminal and check it in there. 3. The International Arrivals building can be accessed from both Terminal E & C, with separate US Customs. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby, which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train taking you to your connecting terminal. There seems to be no VIP /airline lounge listing at IAH site; however, you may want to go to the United site and find for such information.

    MEX FLIGHT 4669 UNITED--FLL 130 UNITED IS 1:00 HOUR ENOUGH TIME TO CONECT????

     

    At IAH, United uses Terminals A, B, C & E. You will most likely arrive at Terminal E. Note: The International Arrivals building can be accessed from both Terminal E & C, with separate US Customs. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminals A, B & C. You should be able to make it within the hour.

    Is 35 min enough time to get from terminal B to terminal E if i take the tram

     

    At IAH, the TerminaLink train runs between the Terminals in their secured area. Follow signs. Terminal E's gateway has gates E1-E11 & E12-24 on either side. Hurry!

     

  • Houston to sa jose connection 31 min ?
    Dec 8, 2012

    We are coming in from Chicago via United and need to connect for flight to San Jose. We only have a 31 min connection time. Flight from Chicago is UA435, Flight from Houston to San Jose is UA1055. Do you have any suggestions for us to ensure we catch our flight from houston to San Jose? Should we take the train or walk to terminal?

     

    Your transfer time does not allow for any incoming delay! Hurry! United uses Terminals A, B & E. (Note there are three San Jose Airports - yours is SJO). Could not get today's arrivals for incoming flight, but your departure to SJO is at Terminal E, at E gates. On arrival follow signs to the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E. NOTE: Terminal E has basically three separate buildings: (a) If you get off the TerminaLink, you find the ticketing area to the right; this area also has an escalator to Level 1, International Arrivals, which has in the lobby a passenger greeting area. Once you get through security check on either side, you can proceed to the gate area. The left-side gateway extension has gates E1 through gates E11, while to the right are gates E12 to E24.
