  • 55 minute connection
    Dec 1, 2014
    I'm considering booking a flight from Grand Junction to Lima, Peru through IAH with a 55 minute layover. Is 55 minutes enough time to catch the connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • 1 hour 10 minute International Connection
    Dec 1, 2014
    I'm flying from San Jose, Costa Rica to London via Houston on United. My flight from Costa Rica arrives to Houston at 8:00 pm and my connection leaves at 9:10 pm. I know I have to go through customs/immigration and I heard I might have to recheck my bags. Is an hour enough to make my connection? Thank you in advance


    That isn't really enough time. 90 minutes is the minimum connection time.


  • enough time to catch connecting flight
    Nov 30, 2014
    will fly YEG Canada, arriving Houston at 5.13 with United 1108 and next flight with United to San Jose Costa Rica UA 1055 at 7.20 am on March28. It is the start of Spring Break and I am worried two hours will not be enough to catch our next flight. Any idea what terminal we will arrive and if we have enough time. Travelling with 3 teens.


    2 hours should be plenty of time. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E. You should pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton, so your arrival into Houston will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    On December 15 I will arrive to IAH from Amsterdam, connecting to Mexico City. My flight from Amsterdam arrives to Houston at 1:35 PM and my next flight departs for Mexico City at 4:10 PM, having 2 hr 35 min to connect. Is that enough time? Thanks!


    That should be plenty of time.


  • From FRA to IAH to CUN
    Nov 28, 2014
    I am a bit worried about the time to go through immigration. I will arrive to IAH on Dec. 11th at 14:00 on flight LH 440 and leave to CUN on flight United 1020 at 15:54. I have carry on and checked luggage. Do you really believe that I can make the connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time to make your connection.

    Hi, I will be traveling from SFO to IAH then a connecting flight to Miami. I will be flying united the whole way. Will I need to go through security again at IAH for my connecting flight to Miami? ( I am worried about time)


    No, you will not have to go through security in Houston. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I am arriving in IAH on December 23rd from GCM at 19:44 and my connecting flight to LAS is at 21:13. Will this give me enough time to clear immigration, collect and recheck my bag and go through security? Thank you


    Yes, that should be enough time. However, it doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays.


  • Terminal C to E less than 40 mins
    Nov 28, 2014
    Hi, We will be arriving from LA to Houston at 5:30am at terminal C and have connecting flight from houston to cancun at 6:10am from terminal E (connection time less than 40 mins). We dont have baggage just a carry on...how long will it take to change the terminal assuming we arrive at farthest gate at terminal C and deprating at farthest gate in terminal E...what will be better option for the transfer running with our carryon or take the terminal link?


    That should be enough time. Those Redeye flights usually arrive early. It's probably fastest to walk.


    Thanks for your response. How long will take to go from terminal C to terminal E


    Between 5 and 15 minutes


  • enough time?
    Nov 25, 2014
    i will land in houston with UA4117 from Dallas landing in terminal B and take off after 36 minutes from terminal E with UA004 to london.is enough time?


    It's enough time if everything runs perfectly, but there's no room for delays.


  • Enough connection time
    Nov 22, 2014
    Hi The 12/23 I am flying from San Jose (Costa Rica) to Austin, Texas, with a connection in Houston (UA1097 to Houston and UA3468 to Austin). Connection time is only 1:37 - will it be enough? I arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal C. According to the plans I will arrive 1:53 pm i Austin and have to catch a plane at 6:15 towards Copenhagen with a connection in London (British Airways). In other words I have plenty of time in Austin but not much in Houston. Guess United Airlines has the responsibility to bring me all the way to Austin. They have another flight from Houston that arrives 3:28pm in Austin and would give me 3:10 in Houston to connect between the flights. Would it be a good idea to change my ticket so I extend my connection time in Houston and shorten my time in Austin or should I keep the tickets? I have to check in 30 min before departure in Houston and 1 hour before in Austin.


    I would change to the later flight. That is prob not enough time to make it thru immigration, customs, and recheck your bag.


  • connecting from terminal C to terminal 2
    Nov 19, 2014
    I have 1hour and 25 mins layover to connect from terminal C to terminal 2 (international) in Houston. Is it enough time? and how far is terminal 2 from C?


    There is no Terminal 2. International flights on United leave from Terminal E and on other airlines from Terminal D. Both are directly connected to Terminal C.


  • Enough Time?
    Dec 2, 2014
    I have a connecting flight in Houston on Dec 3rd with only 1 hour 17 minutes between flights. Will I have enough? Is there a way to look up what terminals I need to connect to/from this far in advance?


    If your first flight is domestic that should be enough time. If you post flight numbers and cities I can help you with terminals


    My flight from Calgary is United 8404 and is arriving in Terminal A and my connecting flight is United 1041 and is departing from Terminal C. Is 1 hour 17 minutes enough time?


  • Connection LHR-IAH-ABQ
    Nov 19, 2014
    Hi, I am travelling from London (UA 96) via IAH to Albuquerque (UA 4090). The time between the flights is 1hr 22 minutes. Is this sufficient if I have only carry-on luggage with me and don't have to check in again?


    Yes that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time


  • Do I have enough time to make connection?
