I arrive from NYC to IAH in terminal C and have a 1h layover to catch my flight to Quito, ecuador, from terminal E. Both flights are United Airlines. Is it enough time? Any suggestions?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be travelling back from Costa Rica to London through IAH with United (all in terminal E) and I have a 2h transfer time. Is that enough?
Yes, that should be enough time.
I'll fly from CUN to FRA via IAH (first flight UA, the second is UA but operated by LH). I read that, if flying international to international on United, the baggages are forwarded on the next flight and it's possible to acces the Onestop line at the immigration, but is this valid also for a codeshare flight?
I'm not sure, you'll have to try to ask the United personnel in Cancun but they may not know either.
The transfer time in IAH is 1hour and 45 min.
We have checked bags and 2 small kids. This is not enough time, right?
It's enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Is a 1 hour and 10 minute layover enough time for a connection? Flying United the entire trip from ICT to Houston with 1 hour and 10 minutes layover to catch a flight to Cabo. I believe we get into Terminal B and leave from Terminal E.
Yes, that is enough time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
Hello, I'm looking at a flight from LHR to DEN with connection in IAH. The layover in IAH is only 1 hour 25 minutes. Is this enough time? Also, can you tell me if I have to clear customs in IAH or DEN? Thank you!
Yes, in Houston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. I recommend at least 2 hours.
Thanks for your reply! I have the immigration fast pass from GOES. Do you still recommend 2 hours? Or will I make it with 1.5 hours?
With Global Entry 90 minutes is possible, but still slightly risky. United does have lots of flights from Houston to Denver though.
Thank you!
Hey, I have a connection in Houston to Denever with my wife and two kids and was curious if 1 hour 20 minutes was enough time to recheck bags and get through customs?
Whee are you flying into Houston from?
We are flying from Des Moines to IAH with a 45 min. Connection to Liberia Costa Rica. If on time, is this even possible with carry-on luggage? And do we have to go through another check-in before boarding internatl?
This is is possible. You don't have to go through any checks in Houston. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
arrival/departure terminals?
You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal C or E (likely C).
Hullo - just wondering if an hour is enough time if arriving at IAH on American from DFW; and departing IAH on Spirit for LAX. Those are in the same terminal, yes?
With no bags checked - carry-on only
Yes, they are both in Terminal A. An hour still leaves very little time to spare.
