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.
The first flight is on United but the second flight from IAH to Toronto is listed as a United flight but operated by AIr Canada. Will my bags be check through or will we have to collect them and recheck with Air Canada and if so will we have enough time with a 2 hr layover.
Since it's a connection between two separate airlines you may have to collect your bags, regardless, you should have enough time.
likely gates for a 43 minute connection?
Yes, that's enough time if the flight from Colorado Springs is on-time.
If arriving on American from Cancun; and then departing on Spirit an hour and ten min later? I am not sure what gate American arrives...from Cancun and if that is enough time or I need to allow another hour or two?
No, that's completely impossible. You need at least 2.5 hours if you have checked bags. Also, American doesn't fly from Cancun to Houston, so please double check whatever you are looking at.
No checked bags; and it's a connecting flight to CUN through DFW...actually. Thanks!
At DFW, you'd need at least 2 hours, even without checked bags since you will have to take a shuttle bus between terminals.
I have 45 mins to get to a connecting flight from Houston tx to orlando florida will I make this flight?
Where are you flying into Houston from? What airlines are you flying?
Memphis to IAH on UA625 then we have 45 mins to get to our flight going to IAH TO MCO ON UA 67
Then all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. You should have enough time if your flight from Memphis is on-time.
arrive in Houston at 5:00 PM at gate b77 and depart from gate c41 at 5:35. Can we make it?
We are flying from Toronto to Auckland with a connection in Houston but only have a 75 minute layover, is that enough time to make our connection to Auckland?
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.
Arriving from Orlando connecting to San Salvador on United with one hour between flights. Are gates on same concourse/terminal and is that enough time to make connection?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We are flying from Tulsa to Houston with a 39 min layover in Houston then to Merida Mexico do we change terminals I hope we have enough time?
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C or E. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You have just enough time if the flight from Tulsa is on-time.
