I have an international connection flight from terminal D, my first flight arrive at terminal B. How much time do I need to get from terminal B to terminal D. I have 1 hour at disposition.
You have enough time. You can take the Skyway train from B to D. It takes less than 15 minutes.
We land at 1036 in B. Take off at 11:25 from c. They start boarding at 10:50..how long will it take to get from B to C TIA!
You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects B and C in less than 10 minutes inside security.
We have booked a flight with one stop in IAH. We arrive at 8:25am, get off one flight and board another with departure time of 9:09am. How do our bags get from one plane to another? Is there somewhere special we need to go before boarding the plane that takes us out of the country? Both flights are through United Airlines but 2 separate planes. Our flight is this Friday!
Were are you flying from? If it's somewhere in the US then all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
We are coming home (US Citizens) from Calgary to Atlanta, through Houston. I have called United Customer Service twice and they are telling me that we don't have to go get our bags and go through customs in Houston, that we do this in Atlanta. We only have an hour in Houston, and if they are wrong, I am afraid we will miss our connecting flight. Do we pick up our bags and go through customs in Houston, or are they correct. The flight is today.
Actually they are completely wrong. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Calgary.
Will I have to clear Immigration or Customs?
I will arrive from Cancun 2 hours before my flight to Amsterdam, is this enough time?
I think that I arrive TE and depart TD.
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. Are both flights on United or is it two separate reservations?
Yes two airlines
United from Cancun
KLM to Amsterdam
Then no, that is NOT enough time. There is no way you will make it with your bags to the KLM check-in desk before the bag check cutoff.
Im flying United from ORD to IAH with 36 minute layover to MEX. is that enough time? How far do we need to walk to depart to MEX
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I'm am leaving from chicago Ord to IAH For a connecting flight in 36 mins to MEX city. Will I have enough time?
do I need to go to customs before boarding to costa rica. where is customs in the airport I only have a 35 min. layover
There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Is there a secure place at IAH to store your luggage while leaving the airport during a short layover? We would like to leave our bags for a few hours if possible. Thanks!
Maybe you could pay the on-site hotel to hold your bags. But other than that, there is no baggage storage.
Is 52 minutes sufficient time to make a connecting flight to Mexico?
If the first flight is domestic and both flights are on the same reservation, yes it is enough time.
