  • From a local to an international flight

    I fly in on United 1129 Sat.8th Dec at 1215hrs and fly out at 1540 hrs on a KLM flight DL9387. Can I know my arrival terminal and will someone help me make it to my flight on time?


    United uses Terminals A, B & E with corresponding gates. On arrival, look at the overhead screens for your departing flight number, gate & time. Look for the TerminaLink train sign. This train, starting at the Terminal A station, connections to Terminals B, C & D/E inside security. Your connecting KLM flight will depart from Terminal D. You have plenty of time for transfer.

    I fly in from Den on Flight 75 and out on 1474 to Grand cayman our layover is only an hour and 4 min we will have a checked bag. Does this give us enough time to reach the gate??


    Without Airline name I cannot give you directions (Denver Airport has Terminals A - E) - If you use two airlines and the first does not transfer your bags to the second one, you need to claim your bags on arrival and take them to the connecting terminal for re-check-in. Open and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Passenger Drop Off at Terminal D

    I can't find a map that shows WHERE to drop off a passenger at Terminal D. Lots of Terminal maps, but why not show drop-off area??


    At IAH, Terminal passenger dropoff is at the right end of Terminal D (pickup at left end, with exit & entry doors in between.


  • BOS-IAH-TGU 32 min connection time???
    Nov 9, 2012
    I booked an international flight with United airlines. I go from Boston to Houston to Honduras. I have a connection is Houston on the same airline but it is only 32 minutes from gate to gate. This is my first time flying united and im scared that 32 minutes is not enough can someone let me no if that is enough time...


    Houston Airport has Terminals A through E, each of which is used by certain airlines. I suggest you open, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Your ticket should indicate Terminal / Gate number.

    what termianal at IAH does United Express leave from?


    United & United Express use the same code UA - IAH does not distinguish between those two - your ticket should indicate Terminal & gate. United uses Terminals A, B, C & E (with corresponding gates); your ticket should indicate Terminal /gate.




  • Terminal E & C
    Dec 9, 2012
    I am flying from Calgary to Cancun on United Airlines with a stopover and plane change in Houston both there and back. My flight there lands in Terminal E and departs again from Terminal E so I assume that is just a matter of disembarking and reboarding. However, my return flight from Cancun lands in Terminal E and departs for Canada in Terminal C. Do I need to go through Customs/Security when I land and again before I take off? Will I need to claim my checked bag first and recheck it or will that get transfered for me?


    While your first arrival at IAH will not be considered as an 'International Arrival' (as you pass US customs clearance in Calgary), on your return from Cancun to IAH you will be an International Arrival and need to go through Customs clearance: 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 (at TC, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.


    I have the same question. Does this also apply to me? I'm arriving from Tegucigalpa, HN on UA into Houston at 356pm, connect to Las Vegas 538pm that same day on UA with 3 bags (I'm moving from HN). My time between flights is 1hr 30 minutes. I'm hoping for a delay for the Las Vegas flight due to all the terminal transfers and customs and security processes. Do you think I'll make the connection?

    I was wondering if you could please help me. I arrive at IAH on UA1282 arriving from MIA at 16:57 on Sunday 4 November. I am hoping to catch EK212 departing at 18:25 to Dubai. I have one checked-in baggage; is there any way I can make these two flights? Also, I will only be flying on standby on both sectors, so no way of checking in prior to the flight.


    I can't tell you so far ahead which Terminal /gate United arrives at, as United uses A, B, C & E Terminals /gates (look at your ticket(s). Emirates uses Terminal D. As you are on standby - I presume that you will have to claim your bag on arrival and check it in with Emirates (find out from United)at and also get your boarding pass for your Emirates flight. This is how to transfer at IAH: While the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security, the Inter-Terminal Train below-ground connects A, B, Hotel, C, D/E outside security. Furthermore, Terminals D & E are connected by a tunnel, while the gate areas of Terminal C connect to Terminal D opposite Gate C24 and to Terminal E after Gate C45. Your time would be extremely tight under the circumstances.
