  • What gate am I arriving at?
    Jan 12, 2016

    Hi, I have a connecting flight in Houston. I'm flying Spirit and the first is flight 315 and arrives to Houston at 7:42pm but it does not tell me what terminal this flight will arrive at. My connecting flight is flight 498 to SJO and departs at 8:30pm from terminal A. Is there any way to know which terminal I will be arriving at beforehand? I'm really worried I wont make the connecting flight. Thank you.

     

    Also, my flight is on Jan 16. Thanks

     

    Both flights use Terminal A. All Spirit flights are in Terminal A except International arrivals.

    Hi, I will arrive on terminal e and switch to c on a flight from Guatemala via Houston and later Newark to Spain. Do i need to go through Immigration and therefore need an esta? Thanks a lot!

     

    Yes, on your connections you will go through US Immigration and customs and need to complete ESTA. There is no sterile international transfer at any airport in the US.

    Hi my daughter is flying from Toronto to Nicaraugua throught Houston with only 1hr and 59 min layover. She has to switch terminals. Does she have to go through customs and will she have enough time

     

    She will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto on her way to Nicaragua. All she has to do in Houston is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. She has enough time.

     

    Thank You

    Hello, I am headed to McAllen, TX and I am wondering which terminal I will depart from in the morning?

     

    Houston-McAllen flights can use Terminal A or B - you can check flight status on united.com to get the exact terminal and gate for your flight.

    Hi. I will be arriving in Houston at 7.53pm from Las Vegas, before heading onto another flight to London, leaving at 9pm. Bags will be moved from flight to flight, but will I have to go through customs or anything when connecting, and as a result, should this give me enough time? Thank you!

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate in Terminal C to your departure gate in Terminal E. You should have enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you very much indeed!

    Traveling on united in march from houston to DC. arrrive at 1206 pm and depart at 1 pm. Says there is a terminal change. is this possible to make this connection with a terminal change?

     

    Where are you flying to Houston from? All terminals at IAH are connected inside security by the Skyway train.

     

    From Tucson to Houston to DC

     

    Yes, then in that case you should have enough time.

    do I have enough time to make it with just carry on and no checkin bags? I also bought the Premier Access from United if this helps thank you

     

    Yes, with no checked bags I think you can make this. Houston has one-stop immigration if you don't have checked bags, so that will also help you save time.

    I Will be arriving Houston AirPort (from Ams, netherlands) at 13.50 terminal E. I have 1h52 to switch to my connected flight ( also with United) at terminal C, that leaves at 15.42 Do I have to take my checked bagage or does the AirPort take care of it? And most important can I catch my flight or is it too little time? Do I have to go through immigration or is it connected? Hope we can catch the flight, ideas/ tips are welcome!

     

    You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and security. You do not have to claim your bags because you are on an International to International connection. You should have enough time.

    I'm arriving from Mexico to Houston at terminal E. I have 2 hrs connection time to get my flight to Chicago from terminal C. Do I have to go through immigration and customs? Do I need to pick up my check in in Houston and re check it again? Is 2 hrs enough time?

     

    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, and go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    I'm planning on flying to Miami from LAS in August. Will my luggage be forwarded straight through to MIA airport or will I have to collect it and check it in again in Houston.

     

    If both tickets are together on the same reservation on United then you won't have to do anything with your bags in Houston.

    I'll be flying from DFW to IAH (ticket booked with United Airlines) and then IAH to IST same day( ticket booked with Turkish Airlines). My questions are: 1) Do i have to recheck my bag at IAH ? 2) How much time would i need to catch my flight to Turkey and the flight back to Dallas?

     

    On your way to Istanbul you don't have to do anything with your bags in Houston, so 1 hour should be plenty of time. On the way back you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate, so I recommend at least 2 hours.

     

    What if i booked the tickets in two separate reservations or transactions? I'am assuming i would need to recheck my bag after claiming it in Houston since is two different airlines witch in this case do not partner with each other.

     

  • Can we make it?

    We have a flight from dtw to iah Thursday January 14th. It lands in Houston at 8:26am. Our connection to MGA departs at 8:59am! Is it possible to make it if we hurry and our flight is on time?

     

    Yes, it is possible.The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. it appears you will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. There is a 6:22 PM flight to Managua if you do miss your connection, obviously waiting around 9 hours for the next flight isn't ideal but it's better than having to wait a full day.

     

    Thanks for your help

    Hello- I'm flying into Terminal C from Kansas City tomorrow with a 37 minute layover before my next flight heads out of Terminal E to Cancun. I was wondering if we will need to recheck our bags in Houston before jumping on the flight to Cancun...

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Houston on your way to Cancun. There is no US Customs when exiting the US.
