  • changing terminals

    We are arriving from Newark to Houston and have 40 min to change terminals to get a flight to Costa Rica. Need to change from Term C to Term E. Do I have to get the train? Can we walk (run)? How far?

     

    You can walk from C to E. You have enough time if your Newark flight arrives on-time.

    I have a 51 min connection time, coming in from Toronto, end destination Costa Rica. Will this be sufficient time to make my connection? Will I depart the same terminal as arriving? thanks!

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A, B, or C and depart from Terminal E. All terminals are connected inside security by the Skyway train, formerly called the Terminalink. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    I arrive IAH from Belize on United at 2:50 PM. Can I make connection to an American flight, on separate reservation, to DFW departing 4:04 PM?

     

    No, that is not enough time. You need a bare minimum of 2 hours.

    Hi i am coming from Houston to Costa Rica would i have enough time to catch the flight

     

    As long as your first flight is domestic and on-time and both flights are on the same reservation that should be just about enough time.

     

    My flight to Houston is from Singapore and the reservation is on the same ticket. Is that ok?

     

    No, in that case that connection time is completely impossible. The Minimum International to International connection time in Houston is 90 minutes. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security during your connection.

    Im a canadian, flying from Bonaire to Toronto, connecting in Houston. I land at 11:30 am and my flight leaves at 12:50 pm all with United. Do i have time to clear customs and make this connection?

     

    That is 10 minutes shorter than the recommended international to International connection time in Houston. It's possible, but it depends on your flight from Bonaire arriving on-time, preferably early.

     

    Thanks for clarifyng that. Rescheduled our flights :)

    United flight from Toronto to Quito with 1h 4m layover in Houston. change terminals. Is this enough time for you and bags to make it?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigraiton and Customs in Toronto.

     

  • How much time to make terminal change

    Flying in from Lake Charles at 12:02 pm and connecting on flight to Tampa at 12:50 pm. I believe there is a terminal change. Will this give me enough time to make that connecting flight?

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal A or B and depart from terminal C. The Skyway train, formerly called the TerminaLink, connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if your flight from Lake Charles is on-time.

    WHICH TERMINALS WE WILL ARRIVE AND LEAVE IN AND HOW DIFFICULT WILL CUSTOMS BE FOR THIS RETURNING FLIGHT AFTER 5 DAY VACATION FOR WEDDING

     

    Sorry for all the caps

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D or 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 in Terminal C. This is a difficult connection as the minimum international to domestic connection time at IAH is 90 minutes, with 2 hours recommended.

     

  • 1hr Layover - Chicago - Houston - Costa Rica

    I will be flying from Chicago to IAH, with an hour layover, and then going from IAH to Liberia, Costa Rica (all flights thru United Airlines). Is 1 hour layover enough time? Will I need to go through any other customs or can I just hop from arrival gate to departure gate? My bags will be tagged in Chicago to fly straight to Costa Rica so I shouldn't have any bags to worry about. Just my person. Also, from the looks of the map of IAH, it appears all non-express United Airlines flights operate out of Terminal C, is this correct? I would imagine if that's the case it'll be easy peasy to get between gates (hoping so!). Thanks everyone!!!

     

    There is no US Customs when departing the US. All you have to do in Houston on your way to Costa Rica is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will arrive in Terminal C or E (likely C) and depart from Terminal E. They are connected inside security. You should have enough time

     

    Thanks for the peace of mind, ZAP!

     

  • London to New Orleans via Houston

    I'm arriving in Houston from London on BA at 18:45 and hoping to catch the United flight to New Orleans at 19:24. Chance of success?

     

    Hand baggage only, I should have said! Thanks

     

    No, that's thoroughly impossible. Even with hand luggage only I wouldn't even attempt a flight before 19:50 and even that would be risky.

    Is 67 minutes of a layover in Houston too short a connection time from the San Fran-Houston flight and Houston-Guadalajara flight? All flights are with United. I am travelling on an Irish passport, with hand luggage only. Will I need to change terminals? Will I need to clear US customs in Houston? Will I need to exit and re-enter security checking in Houston? Thank you.

     

    Your flight to Guadalajara may depart from terminal B or C. You will arrive in terminal C or E. All terminals are connected inside security by the Skyway train, formerly the TerminaLink train. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US customs when exiting the US. You should have enough time.

    I have 90 mins to make my connection with a UK passport. Can I do it? Handluggage only.

     

    With hand luggage only that should be enough time.

     

    I was the last on the plane and ran from customs to terminal A via train. It took over 60 mins from plane to other side of customs..

    I am arriving from Cancun and connecting to Frankfurt. Luggage is checked all the way. Will I have to pass through US immigration or can In just walk between terminals E and D? Will 1:25 hours be enough?

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration and security. Your bags should be checked through. You should have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks. I will keep my fingers crossed then.

    I have 1 hour 39 minutes to arrive, go through customs, and get to the SFO flight. Is this enough time, and do I need to pick up my luggage, and recheck it for the San Fran flight?

     

    Your bags will be tagged through to San Francisco, but in Houston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then immediately re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks. So, how long does it normally take to go though customs? Is there a recommended amount of time? I think I read below of 90 minutes...

     

    Yes, you should have just about enough time. if you miss your connection due to a late inbound flight, United has lots of flights from IAH to San Francisco.

     

    Thanks again!

    coming in domestic with checked bags and leaving EVA-intl out of D terminal, so will have to move my own bags over (separate tickets). will have a bit over an hour; what transport is avail from b-baggage to D checkin?

     

    The Inter-terminal train, recently renamed the Subway, connects all terminals outside security. You barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
