  • Security Check Points
    Oct 6, 2014
    Are there security check points at each terminal? I have a connecting flight in Terminal E. I will be coming from outside security and will need to pass through again.


    Yes, every terminal has its own security checkpoints.


  • 34Minute Connection: Domestic to International
    Oct 5, 2014
    Hi, United changed our flights, so now we only have 34 minutes to make the transfer from our plane arriving from Houston and then leaving on our flight to Liberia, Costa Rica. Is 34 minutes enough time to make this international connection? Thanks.


    United uses Terminals TA, TB, TC & TE. Its international departures are from TE. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the text - paying attention particularly to 'Getting Around" & TERMINAL DETAILS.


    The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK but there's little time to spare in case of any delays.


  • 57 mins layover time

    I am flying to IAH from DSM. I have a 57 min lay over time before i board for Cancun. Is this enough time? United just changed our flights and I cant change it. Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. The TerminaLink train connects all Terminals inside security.

    My flight lands at 12:09 at c-45 from okc with a connection at b1 to crw with a boarding time of 12:25. Will I make it?


    Yes, that should be enough time. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Connection between GSP and NSY
    Sep 28, 2014
    We have a layover time in IAH of 57 minutes. Is this enough time to transfer between terminals B & C and do we need to go through security again in IAH as part of the connection process?


    Sorry, meant MSY


    And I am flying with United on Thanksgiving weekend !!!


    No, you do not need to go through security. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • From Term A to TerB ticket counter, need to go through Security first?
    Sep 28, 2014
    I have 1:20 from arrival in Term A, gate 17-19 to get to my United flight in Term B. I need to check 2 bags and get boarding passes at Untied in Term B. Do I really need to go through Security before I check my bags at the Untied ticket counter? Basically, is this enough time?


    What airline are you flying into Terminal A? United has a check in counter at Terminal A. You can probably use that. Then you will go back through security in Terminal A and then take the TerminaLink train to Terminal B (if that is actually where you are departing).


  • Connection to San Jose, Costa Rica
    Sep 26, 2014
    Is 45 min enough time to transfer from a United from Denver - San Jose, Costa Rica


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal C or E and depart from Terminal E, which is directly connected to C.


    Thank you for your response


  • international to domestic transfer time
    Oct 12, 2014
    Arrive from Costa Rica on United UA1517 at 7:38pm and depart for San Francisco on UA1178. It has 1 hour 27 min for transfer. Is that enough time? Thank you.


    That is slightly below the minimum connection time but you should be OK. If you do miss your connection United operates many IAH-SFO flights but I don't know if there will be one later than the 9PM flight you're already booked on.


    Do you know the terminals? Thank you!


    You will arrive in E and depart from C.


    We are flying from toronto to belize, through IAH. We will on.y have one hour connection time. Is that enough time? Do we have to go throug customs?

    We will arrive with UA59 from AMS at 13.45 and our connection to SFO will leave at 15.28 UA404. UA shortened our connection with 20 minutes. Makes me a little nervous, I would hate missing our flight to SFO. Which terminal will we arrive and depart? How do we travel between these terminals?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal C, which is directly connected to E. Upon arrival you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with United, then go through security.

    Im arriving to IAH at 19:40 from Istanbul, Turkey at terminal D and have a connecting flight to MSY from terminal B at 9:16. can i make it?


    i mean 20:16


    Arriving at 19:40 terminal D from Turkey and going to New Orleans from terminal D(united) at 21:16. can i make the flight to MSY?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Your flight to New Orleans will actually operate from Terminal B or C. However, all terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.


  • QRO - IAH - ORD connection
    Sep 22, 2014
    Good day. I'm arriving IAH at 8:53 AM from QRO (Terminal E) to take a plane to ORD (Terminal C) at 10.22. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should barely be enough time.


  • Grand Cayman to San Antonio, Connection 1 hr 20 min at IAH

    Arriving from GCM to IAH at 7:44 pm on Dec 31st Will I be able to clear customs and make my connecting flight IAH to SAT departing at 9:05 pm? - All United Airlines flights)


    That is below the minimum allowed connection time. however, I doubt there are any later flights to San Antonio so you might as well try it.

    My flight arrives at terminal B 9:18am and departs from terminal E at 10am - is this enough time??


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The TerminaLink Train connects all Terminals inside security. Also, your flight from DCA will arrive in Terminal C, not Terminal B. Terminal C is directly connected to Terminal E.


    Great, thank you!


  • Calgary to Fort Myers connection 45 min in Houston, is that enough tim
    Sep 18, 2014
    Calgary flight to Fort Myers connects in Houston. Only 45 min between flights. Is that enough time to get from Terminal A to C?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. The TerminaLink train connects all Terminals inside security.


  • 35 minute connection?
    Sep 17, 2014
    San Antonio to Houston - 35 minute connection for a Houston - NY (LGA) flight - is that possible?


    Yes, it is possible if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
