  • Going to Costa Rica on United
    Aug 30, 2015
    I arrive from STL at 8:07 and have to be in terminal B in 52 min on my way to Liberia Costa Rica. Do I have to pick up my bags and go through customs? Can I make it?


    You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You will just have to take the TerminaLink train from your arrival terminal (likely B) to your departure terminal (E). The Terminalink train runs inside security.


  • from terminal E to B

    Arriving from Belize in Terminal E, departing for Toronto in Terminal B. Best way to get there?


    Once you go through customs go through security in E then take the Terminalink train to B.


  • Help with transfer

    Need to go from Terminal B after picking up bag to Terminal D to check in for international flight. Best way to get there?


    The Inter-Terminal train runs between all terminals outside security underground. Just follow signs to it after collecting your bags.


  • LGA-IAH-CUN...30 minutes!
    Aug 24, 2015
    We arrive from NY LGA to IAH at 8:31am & need to transfer to catch our 9:01am flight to Cancun (all through United). Enough time for us & our luggage? Conversely, our return trip gives us 1 hour & 22 minutes between flights. We'll need to clear customs. Enough time? Thanks in advance!


    Both will be very difficult. At least on the first all you have to do is run from one gate to another. I think 1 hr 22 mins for international to domestic will be much more difficult.


  • Taking skyway to different Terminal
    Aug 24, 2015
    I am arriving by United In Terminal C gate 31. Can I take the skyway to Terminal a without exiting security?


    The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • 1h 4m is enough?
    Aug 24, 2015
    I will travel from YYZ to UIO with a scale of 1h 4min on IAH, is it enough time to go from Terminal B to Terminal E? i guess US customs will be done already on YYZ Terminal 1.


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Toronto is on-time.


  • 1hr 30 mins enough time??
    Aug 21, 2015
    I fly from LHR to PNS via IAH. I have 90 mins to make my internal flight (both flights with united) will this be enough time????


    That should be barely enough time.


  • transfer between terminals
    Aug 20, 2015
    i am arriving Sunday in terminal C and have to connect at Terminal B, both domestic flights. Do I need to go through security again at Terminal B? also, will my bags get checked through/ thanks!


    Yes, your bags will be checked through. No you won't have to go through security. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • MUC - IAH -CUN
    Aug 21, 2015
    I'm going on vacation from Munich to Cancun with Connection in Houston. We fly with UA and will land at Terminal E. After the Immigration, do i have to Claim baggage an re-check it on or will it be checked directly to Cancun?


    You should not have to claim and re-check your bags as you are on an International to International connection.


    So I don't have to go through US customs with my checked baggage but only with my carry-on baggage..is that correct?


    what is your connection time? I am doing the same flight, but I dont know will I catch flight to cancun with 1h 45 min beetween the flights and customs inbetween


    If you are also going from MUC via IAH to CUN we have the same Connection time. The Problem will be the time we Need for Immigration an customs. If we have to go through customs with the checked baggage it will be very very tight to reach the plane to CUN


  • 55 minutes layove js this enough to tra fer to another flight
    Aug 20, 2015
    Arrive in houston at 8:22 pm then leave at 9: 20 pm to Rio de Janejro. Is this doable?


    As long as the first flight is domestic that is enough time.

    Arriving IAH from Panama, my final destination is Little Rock, do I have to claim baggage and re-check them again after customs cleared? I have 2 hours between flights. Arriving terminal is E, departure terminal is B.


    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate via the TerminaLink train.


  • Munich - Huston-Denver
    Aug 19, 2015
    Hello, I am flying from Munich to Denver. I will arrive at 2:20pm and have 2h and 2 min layover in Huston. Will be that enough to clear customs in Huston? Will I have to pick up my luggage and check it in again?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Enough time
    Aug 19, 2015
    I'm arriving on Southwest from EWR departing for PVR with a 50 min layover have I enough time and do I stay in the same terminal?


    Southwest does not fly to Houston-Bush Intercontinental Airport. They fly to Houston-Hobby airport, which only has one Terminal.


  • International to international connection time at US airports
    Aug 18, 2015
    Hi, I am planning a trip to Costa Rica with the following flights: 1. London Heathrow (LHR) - San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO): with Austrian/United – 2hr 34 mins layover at Newark (EWR) 2. San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) to London Heathrow (LHR): with United – 1 hr 58 mins layover at Houston (IAH) Is this enough time for an international connection? Apart from going through security, do I need to pick up luggage, go through customs (and) check the luggage again? Thanks for your help!


    Both ways that should be enough time. On your way to Costa Rica you will have to pick up and re-check your baggage but on the way back you should not. Both ways you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.


  • ? Enough time
    Aug 23, 2015
    I am arriving 2.54pm from New Orleans with United Airways and need to connect with 3.55pm flight to Mexico City, also with United. Do I have enough time for the transfer?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate in Terminal B or C to your departure gate in Terminal E. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security and C is directly connected to E.


    Tks - Fingers crossed then!
