    Hi' I am transiting to LAX at IAH from LHR LONDON but only have a 1 hour 40 mins transit time. I also will have to switch terminals. Is this sufficient time as I don't wish to miss my connection...

     

    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Connecting in IAH from London LHR to Managua MGA, UK citizen. Would I need to collect and re-check luggage? Both flights are United. Is 2 hours reasonable for the connection? And the same on the way back? THanks

     

    Since you are on an International to International connection all on United through Houston you don't have to claim your bags. However, you do still go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You should have enough time.

    I'm looking at a United Flight into IHA from Costa Rica, connection to SFO (also on United). It shows a 1hr25 minute connection, with terminal change, and says this is a "risky connection. An earlier flight with 1hr20 minute connection, doesn't say "risky" - is 1hr25 minutes enough. We will have check bags, and have TSA Pre (but not global entry). Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is risky. I would say anything under 2 hours International to domestic in Houston is risky.

     

    Thanks ZAP

    We are travelling to Cancun via Houston with only 1hr 25min layover from San Fran. Does not seen enough to to go domestic to international? Assume we need to recheck baggage onto international flight. Note we are Australian passport holders.

     

    No, you do not have to re-check your bags. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Hi - I'm flying MTY - IAH - LHR on United and I have a 1h13 layover at IAH terminal E. Will I have to clear immigration? Is this enough time?

     

    That's not realistically enough time for an International to International connection in Houston.

    Hi, I flew through IAH previously and missed my flight because I could not clear customs and recheck my bags in 3-ish hours. I have another trip coming up arriving on Tuesday, Oct 18th at 5:55pm from London with a 3 hr 37 min layover. Will I be able to clear customs and recheck my bags for a domestic flight with this amount of time? I'm hoping my first IAH experience was a fluke. Thank you so much for your advice!

     

    You should be able to.

     

    Great, thank you very much Zap!

     

    I have made the Mexico City to domestic connection dozens of times in about an hour.

     

    Really? Ok that's very reassuring. Must have been a really off day then. Thank you for your reply!

    I'm flying from Mexico City to IAH and land in terminal E at 2:23 pm if it's on time on a Thursday. My connection flight to CLE is at 3:50 pm in terminal C. (1 h 27 min layover). Will I have enough time to clear customs, recheck my bag and get to my connection?

     

    I should have mentioned both flights are United airlines.

     

    That's less than the recommended time. It will be very difficult.

    arriving in Houston 9/28/16 united airlines at 6:35am. Leaving Houston on united airlines to dulles at 7:15am. is this enough time to make my connection? husband and myself are not fast walkers d/t some debility.

     

    Where are you arriving into Houston from? I can't answer your question without that information.

     

    arriving from corpus christi

     

    Yes that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hi, I'm looking at flights from Europe to Austin and one option is through IAH; arriving with LH440 at 2h05 PM and leaving with UA8636 at 3h35. Is 1h30min aufficient time for the transfer?

     

    Realistically that is not enough time to make an International to Domestic connection in Houston. I would look at booking the next flight to Austin instead.

    I am flying from LAX to CHS through IAH in November and United just changed my departure time so now I only have 35 minutes berween flights. I assume I have to change terminals so is that enough time?

     

    It is possible but it leaves absolutely no time to spare. I would call United and ask for an earlier flight from LAX if there is one or alternatively, to be routed through Chicago to Charleston.

    IAH does not have a Terminal 2. You will arrive in Terminal E. Yes, you have enough time.

    I have 55 min. connecting time coming into Houston from Hartford, CT and then going to Cancun, MX Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if the flight from Hartford is on-time.

    We have a flight from Boston to Houston on United (UA2045) then depart from Houston to Auckland on Air New Zealand (NZ29) which gives us 1 hr 15 min from landing to take off. Will we have enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    My young daughter is a UK citizen flying London UK to Managua via Houston, all on United into Terminal E. Her flight arrival time has just been changed by United reducing transit time to depart to Managua to only 1 hour 15 minutes. If she misses her flight to Managua it will cause a lot of problems for her onward connection from there. Is 1 hour 15 mins realistic ?

     

    That is not a legal connection. She needs to contact whoever booked her ticket and get it changed. Depending on the day of week she is traveling she may have to fly to Houston a day earlier and spend a day there.
