  • Belize to London
    Apr 11, 2016
    I am due to arrie at Houston from Belize with United on the 23rd May and my connecting flight again with United to London Heathrow is 1 hour 10 minutes later - will that be enough? Thanks


    No, that is not enough time for an International to International connection through Houston.


    Thanks for the updates- not sure why United have it as a connecting flight. Does it take so long as you need to pick up baggage and recheck in? Looks like I may be waiting a long time for the next flight.


    Since you are on an International to International connection, you do not have to claim and re-check your baggage, but you do have to go through US Immigration and customs and security.


  • Layover in Houston
    Apr 8, 2016
    We are flying to Toronto from Puerta Vallarta with a layover in Houston. Do we have to go through US customs/immigration?


    Yes, however, since you are on an International to International connection you can go to the Onestop immigration/customs line since you don't have to claim your bags. You will then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Connection from terminal C o B 55minutes enough?
    Apr 7, 2016
    My flight from Los Angeles arrived to Houston at6:15pm Terminal C I need to go to Terminal B to connect to Panama City, flight leaves at 7:10pm Do I need to pick up my bags from the first flight and 55 min its enough time to connect?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bags. Are you going to Panama City, Panama, or Panama City, Florida?


    Panamá City, FL


  • London-Houston-Quito
    May 3, 2016
    Hi! I've seen you need around 2 hours to transfer on international-international flights. I checked on google and it said that the Lufthansa flight from London arrives at terminal E, gate 4, and my United flight to Quito leaves from terminal E, gate 15. I have a 1h50m layover. Is this enough? What checks do I have to go through?


    Your flight from London will be operated by United, so be sure to check in with United in London, not Lufthansa. You don't know the exact gates until the day of your flight although they will both be in Terminal E. When you arrive follow the signs to "Onestop" immigration and Customs - you don't have to claim your bags in Houston since you are on an International to International connection. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.


    Hi, my parents are flying in from Nigeria and will arrive Houston then board to final destination of Los Angeles. Will they need to check out their luggage at Houston and go through immigration and then recheck to join the local flight, their wait time in Houstin is 2hours, will that be enough?


  • Flight Connection
    Apr 6, 2016
    I am flying from Roatan, Honduras to Calgary with a connection in Houston. I have 1 hour and 10 minutes to connect. Is this sufficient?


    No, that is not enough time for an International to International connection in Houston. You need at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours.


    Thank you. United Airlines keeps on insisting that this is sufficient time after they cancelled my flight that was to leave at a later time.


  • Terminal A to C in 63 minutes
    Apr 6, 2016
    I am arriving from Toronto at IAH at 622pm. My departure flight to Guatemala City leaves at 725pm. Is this enough time to connect?


    That's enough time as long as your bags are checked through and your flight from Toronto is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Also, your flight to Guatemala City will actually depart from Terminal E.


  • Layover times
    Apr 5, 2016
    I have an international flight coming in from Belize and connecting in IAH, before proceeding to IAD. The layover is 1 hour and 15 minutes. Is that enough time to go through immigration, customs, recheck luggage, go through security and then connect to my flight?


    No, that is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in Houston.


  • Terminal connection C to D in 61 minutes NY to IAH to Auckland
    Apr 5, 2016
    My daughter is flying United from NY landing Term C at 9:29 pm and departing 10:30 pm (61 minutes) on Air New Zealand NZ29 to Auckland at Terminal D. Is 61 minutes enough to make connection, assuming international ticketed from NY and baggage checked through?


    Yes, all she has to do is walk from your arrival gate to her departure gate. That's enough time if the first flight is on-time.


    Thanks. You said she just needs to walk from arrival gate to departure gate. Does this mean there is not the delay risk of an additional security check going from Terminal C connecting to an international flight on Terminal D


    Correct. You can walk from C to D inside security. There is no special security or anything when departing on an International flight.


  • 39min layover?
    Apr 5, 2016
    I'm flying in from honolulu at 8:06am and departing for Newark at 8:45 with a 39min layover. Will that be enough time?


    Yes, if your flight from Honolulu is on-time that should be just enough time.


  • Connection Time Question
    Apr 3, 2016
    Flying DEN to IAH then IAH to Panama City, Panama (PTY) both flights though United with a 55 minute layover. Will this be enough time in between flights?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do on your way to Panama City is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connections ABQ to LGA via IAH
    Apr 2, 2016
    IS 1 hour enough time to catch connecting flight to LGA. Tickets say both gates are Terminal C. Will be flying in from Albuquerque. Have never been in IAH before????


    The flight from Albuquerque could arrive in B or C. The Skyway train connects all gates inside security. You should have enough time.


  • Stay at aiport. Long connection!
    Apr 2, 2016
    My mom arrives at Houston at 1:30 pm with united, and her next connection is the following day at 7am with air Canada. So, she has to re-check and go through US immigration. She plans to stay at airport all this time waiting for her next flight. It is that possible??


    Where is she coming from? There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. Yes, you can spend the night in the non-secure part of the airport, but it's not exactly pleasant. she won't be able to go through security until about 4 AM the next day.

    I am connecting at IAH from EWR (Newark) to LAS my flight arrives at IAH at 10:36, and my flight departs for LAS at 11:30 both flights are on united. Will this be enough time for me to make my connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will likely be in Terminal C.


    My boyfriend is flying from London to Pensacola on United with a 2-hour layover in Houston. Will this be enough time for him to clear customs, re-check his bags, and then check into his flight from Houston to Pensacola? How long does it typically take international passengers to clear US Customs in Houston? He is a British citizen.


    KS, Yes, that should be enough time.


  • layover time
    Mar 29, 2016
    I am flying with United from Chicago to Pensacola with a 53 minute layover in Houston. Is this doable?


    Yes, that is possible. You will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal B. They are connected inside security by the Skyway train.


  • Connection International to Domestic MCO
    Mar 29, 2016
    I am flying from CCS to MCO making a connection in Houston. This is my Itinerary: United 1045 Caracas - Houston CCS 8:30am - IAH 1:30pm Terminal E Layover: 2h 10min United 1644 Houston - Orlando IAH 3:40pm - MCO 7:00pm Terminal C It is enough time to catch the second flight? Do I need to claim my baggage go to US Immigration, Customs, etc and recheck my baggage or will that be done automatically?


    Yes, that should be just enough time for your layover. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate.


    Thank you ZAP
