  • 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.

    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

    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.

    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


  • Layover Time
    Mar 28, 2016
    Flying from Calgary (YYC) to Guatemala City (GUA) via Houston. Is a 1 hour 5 min layover enough time? Do I have to clear customs in Houston, or do so in Calgary?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    Hi we arrive from Pittsburgh to Houston domestic at 7:55pm and will then transfer to International for a departure at 10:30pm terminal D on AIR NZ (which we are Elite members). Is that enough time? (2 hours 35 mins). Many thanks. Kristin


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Terminal to pick up
    Mar 28, 2016

    If he is on United, Terminal C. If he is on American or Spirit, Terminal A.


  • Tight connection time
    Mar 27, 2016
    I have a question regarding BOTH connections for an upcoming trip. Question 1: We are flying Milwaukee (MKE) to Puerto Vallarta (PVR) via IAH. We will not check any bags, just a carry-on. Our MKE flight arrives at IAH at 7:58 a.m. and departs for PVR at 8:45 a.m.with a 47m connection. Is this doable? Question 2: Our return flight arrives from PVR into IAH at 3:24 p.m. and departs for MKE at 4:50 p.m. with a 1h 26m connection. Is this doable? This one makes me nervous. What does the process involve coming from PVR into IAH with no checked bags? Thanks for your help!!


    On the way to PVR it should be pretty doable as long as your flight from MKE is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. The Skyway train connects them inside security. On the way back you will have to go through Immigration, Customs, and Security in Houston. Since you have no checked bags you can use Onestop in Houston. Look for the Onestop signs after you arrive. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will just have to go through Onestop Immigration and Customs and then Security and then take the Skyway train to your departure gate in B.


    Thank you so much! I appreciate the help.


    Oops, forgot to mention above that these are United flights. Don't know if that matters or not. Thanks again.


    Yes, I assumed that as United is the only airline that flies both of those routes.


  • International to Domestic
    Mar 26, 2016
    My mom is flying in 3 weeks from Brazil to Orlando via Houston. All flights in United. She will get in Houston at 5am by United. So I assume she will arrive in the terminal E. She will have to pass through immigration and her next flight is to Orlando at 8:50am from Terminal C (I guess). Can you tell me if it is possible to her to make it? I do not know what time the immigration check opens and if she will need to re-check her bag. Another question: Is it easy to re-check bags after passing the immigration? She does not speak English at all, so I am afraid she will get lost in the airport. Thanks


    Yes, she has plenty of time. She will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags immediately after at the re-check desk, then go through security and to her departure gate in Terminal C. If she's worried then maybe she should try to find someone on her flight that speaks both Portuguese and English or someone that has been through Houston before on her flight and have them help her.


    Thank you! I will tell her to find someone on her flight that speaks portuguese and I will write a step by step for her to do when she gets there. Thank you!


  • Incheon-IAH-MSY
    Mar 25, 2016
    Hi! I will be flying in from Incheon via Korean Airlines, which will arrive 8.50 a.m. Would I have enough time to go through immigration, custom, pick up luggage and connect to United Airlines flight at 11:30 to go to New Orleans? Please advice. Thank you!


    I think that would be just about enough time.


  • 1h6m time for connecting flight to Toronto from Killeen
    Mar 25, 2016
    Hi, I'm looking at booking a flight from Killeen to Toronto via Houston. Is the 1 hour, 6 min time between flights enough to make the connection?


    Sorry, both flights are operated by United.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
