  • 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

    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!

    how long does the terminalink take to make a complete circle


    Probably about 20 minutes. There's a video of it on Youtube.


  • 45 min. connection
    Mar 21, 2013
    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.


  • 45 minut layover with kids
    Mar 20, 2013
    I know this has been address but I just want extra assurance. :) Is a 45 minute layover doable? It'll be me, my husband, two kids, and a car seat. We're coming in from Pittsburgh (PIT) and going to Orange County (SNA). Also, how can I find out which terminal I will be flying into and out of? Thanks.


    Forgot to add: we will be flying United for both flights.


    Yes, it's doable. If your PIT-IAH flight is on United it will arrive in terminal C or E. if it's on United Express it will arrive in B. Your SNA flight will probably depart from C. If you arrive into B you can take the TerminaLink train between terminals, otherwise you can walk between gates in C or between C and E.


  • long time between flights
    Mar 20, 2013
    I have a long time between flights at IAH. I get in at midnight and the next flight isn't until 7am. are ther sleeping booths available at this airport and where are they located


    No, "sleeping booths" are just coming to America.


    You could opt for the massage chairs near gate C43 - if sitting on floor there you get WiFi connection from nearby VIP lounge. Alternatively, open http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i10702-k5639170-Long_layover_in_Houston_IAH_Hotel_or_sleep_in_airport-Air_Travel.html for hotel accommodation suggestions by Air Travel Forum.


  • United flight 43 minute connection
    Mar 18, 2013
    We have a flight that arrives at IAH at 9:33 am (United) and leaves at 10:16 am for Roatan, Honduras. Is that enough time?


    That's very tight, but doable. Your Roatan flight will likely depart from Terminal E. If you arrive into Terminal A or B, take the TerminaLink train between terminals.


    Thank you for your response


  • go to vancouver
    Mar 18, 2013
    I am flying from Indianapolis to Houston, TX then to Vancouver with United airline. I will leave Indy at 6:30am, arrive in Houston at 8:03am, I have one hour to connect to the flight to Vancouver. Will I have enough time? Do I need to go thru custom in IAH? What is the best way to do? I will be 33 weeks pregnant and taking my 6-year-old son.


    Yes, you have enough time. You do not go through customs at IAH, you will go through Canadian immigration in Vancouver. Your flight from IND will likely arrive in Terminal B (although it could arrive in A) and your YVR flight will likely depart from Terminal C. You just have to take the TerminaLink one station if you arrive in B and 2 stations if you arrive in A.


  • 40 mins Connection Terminal A to C
    Mar 17, 2013
    I have two small children and I'm connecting between Terminals A and C with a 40 min connection. Should I be concerned??


    I should mention...I'm coming in from Tulsa and ddeparting to Orlando


    On arrival at IAH, Terminal A, look for signs for the above-ground TerminaLink train which runs continuously between the terminals inside security. On arrival at TC, the TerminaLink train station and splits shortly thereafter into the gateway to gates C24 to C27, to the right, gateway to gates C14 to C23 in the center, and C2 to C14 to the left. You make it easily within 40 mins.
