  • Terminal Connection times
    Mar 3, 2013
    My daughter arrives to IAH at 8:20 am from Dallas on American Airlines at Terminal A and needs to get to group check in at United Airlines Terminal E and fly out at 9:45 she only has a carry on. Is this enough time? Is there a best way to do it?


    She can take the Terminalink (inside security) or Intra-Terminal Train (outside security). She has enough time, but only barely.

    hi. i will arrive from XNA on expressjet at 4:59pm mar. 29 and need to be on united airline flight 4160 at 5:30pm. Can anyone tell me what gates or terminal to head for??? Thanks.


    EpressJet currently operates as Delta Connection and United Express. Delta uses Terminal A, United uses Terminals A, B & C. On arrival, look at overhead screen to find your flight and gate number. Then take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, inside security. Hurry if you need to change terminals.


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal C


  • Enough time for connecting flight?
    Mar 1, 2013
    I've never been to this airport before and am arriving in terminal B with a connecting flight to Cancun in terminal E...the layover is 58 minutes...can someone please tell me if this is enough time before I book my flight?? Thanks!


    On arrival at IAH, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E. Then follow signs to E gates (The left-side gateway extension has gates E1 through gates E11, while to the right are gates E12 to E24.)


  • 30 minutes to get to next flight
    Feb 26, 2013
    Hi. I just realized we have 30 minutes to get to the next gate on our flight from Chicago (ORD) to Panama City (PTY) on 3-30-13 with a layover in Houston. Can anyone give me an idea if this is even possible? I booked thru Travelocity, so I assumed this was doable otherwise I would not have been able to book this flight. Does any one know the gate numbers that my flight might arrive at and depart from? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated! Andy...


    I'm assuming both of your flights are on United. Your arrival will be into terminal C or E and your Panama City flight will probably depart from E.


  • 45 Min Connection for Cancun Flight
    Feb 25, 2013
    My family and our 2 toddler are flying from BWI to IAH and have a 45 min layover to connect with our United Flight to Cancun. Will we be able to make the connection? Is there a way to know if we are in the same terminal or not? Moving quickly with 2 toddlers is not easy since we have to wait for our stroller to be brought up etc.


    Your Cancun flight will depart from Terminal E and your Baltimore flight will arrive into C or E, both of which are fairly close to one another. If your flight is on time, you can make your connection. Also, during this time of year there are many flights from Houston to Cancun, so if you miss your connection and aren't currently on the last flight, chances are you can be rebooked.


  • connection between terminal a and b
    Feb 23, 2013
    with a 50 minute layover what is quickest way to get from terminal a to terminal b and will I have time?


    On arrival at IAH, TA, take the above-ground TerminaLink train to TB.


  • 40 minute connection
    Feb 23, 2013
    how long is walk from C gates to Terminal E gates & if I'm connecting on UAL flight do I go through security?


    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security and runs a continuous loop. You can also walk Between C & E gates - I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Limited Time

    My brother is mentally challenged is there any help at the airport to get him from Terminal A to Terminal B, he only has 45 minutes.


    While Terminals A & B are close together, and the above-ground TerminaLink train starts its round at TA inside of security (next stop TB), you should contact his airline ahead of departure. Also, you may want to contact IAH Airport's Administrative Office at 281-230-3100.


  • connection to cozemul
    Feb 12, 2013
    arriving from omaha nebraska connecting to cozemul with only about 30 minutes, how far and how much time will it take?


    forgot to say it is on united airlines expressjet


    I'm assuming your connection is in Houston (IAH). That's a very tight connection but doable. Your flight from Omaha will probably arrive in B-north and the Cozumel flight will probably leave from Terminal E. Take the TerminaLink train. Hopefully your flight from Omaha is on time.


  • Which terminal?
    Feb 13, 2013
    Whihc terminal to go to for an United flight to Cleveland on 02/14, 7:01am in the morning?


    United flight to Cleveland is in Terminal C, which has gates C29-C45.

    Is it possible to get from A18 to B64 in 25 minutes??


    At IAH, A & B gates are not connected; they are in Terminals A & B. The above-ground TerminaLink train starts its service at Terminal A station and connects to Terminal B inside security. Follow signs and hurry. TB has gates B68-B75 and B60-B66.


  • Houston (IAH ) airport terminal distance
    Feb 8, 2013

  • Cutting it close
    Feb 7, 2013
    Will be traveling from Phoenix on a United flight. We have to get to the international terminal with a 57min connection on a United flight to Amsterdam. Is this enough time? What terminal is international? What kind of transportation between the terminals?


    At IAH, United uses Terminals A, B, C & E - all with corresponding gate numbers (i.e., C45). 1. If arriving at gates C29-45 and transferring to Terminal E: walk towards gates C14-24 and proceeds straight on to TE. 2. the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security. Look on arrival at IAH at overhead screens to find your flight and connecting gate number. Your time should suffice.


  • Rushed Connection
    Feb 1, 2013
    We need to make a quick connection between the following and do not know the gates, can we make it in time arrive 6:25pm (not sure what gate, but previous flights have been at gate C-39) depart 6:56pm (not sure what gate, but previous flights have been at gate C-24) Can we make the connection in time and what is the fasted route between gates?


    At IAH, Terminal C is exclusively for United Airways. On arrival look at overhead screens to find your flight number, gate & departure time. TC has three gateways at the left side of the terminal, for gates C29 to C33, gates C34 to C42, and gates C43 to C45. Hurry!


  • gates
    Jan 30, 2013
    Do the American eagle and United express jets pull up to a gate or have to deboard down stairs. I am traveling with my 85 yr old mother...


    I suggest you arrive early at IAH, go to the airline counter and altert them that you may need a special lift - all airports have them, don't know what they call them.
