Hi, I am travelling from Los Cabos to Newark and will stop over at Houston. I have exactly 2 hrs between the time the Cabos->Houston flight lands to when the Houston->Newark flight takes off. Is that enough time to go through Immigration and Customs and get onto my Newark flight ? Thanks for your help !
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you much ZAP !!
Hi, I have a flight from London to Houston with British Airways, connecting to MTY Mexico with United, brought the tickets separetly, with a layover of 3 hours. Is it enough time to change the planes? Do I have to pick up my bags and go through security etc? Thank you
Yes, you will have to claim your bags from British Airways, take them through Customs, then re-check them at the United-check in desk then go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Canadian citizen flying from LGA (New York) to LBB (Lubbock) with a 49 minute connection in IAH with a terminal change. Is that enough time, will I have to clear customs or security?
New York and Texas are both located in the United States of America. There is no US Customs when traveling on domestic flights. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
I am flying from SFO Santiago through IAH. Outgoing flight I have 1 hour to transition, is that enough time?

On my way back, going from Santiago to SFO, I have 1h40min transfer time in IAH. Would that be enough time?
Both of those should be enough time. On the return to SFO you BARELY have enough time.
I'm flying in from honolulu to terminal b connecting to terminal c to Alabama is 45 min enough time to connect. Don't know gates yet.
That should be enough time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
We're flying to Puerto Vallarta from Cleveland with a connection in Houston. Our layover is only 40 minutes. Im not checking any luggage. Is this enough time or should we reschedule?
That is possible. All you have to do on the way to Mexico is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Of course, it leaves no time to spare.
I just got the info that im arriving at terminal B and departing from E. Still seems a bit sketchy. What do you think?
I am arriving as Dutch citizen in IAH (Houston) with KLM at 13:05 my connecting domestic flight with United to El Paso is on 14:00. I only have hand-luggage. Will 1 hour and 25 minutes be enough time to make the transfer?
That's not realistically enough time. Per the times you provided you only have 55 minutes.
Connecting flight to El Paso is 14:30 so have 1 hour and 25 minutes. Will That be enough?
Flying with United from Toronto, Canada (YYZ) to Rio de Janeiro (GIG) with a 1hr 30min layover in Houston (IAH). Should I be concerned about the connecting time?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston on your way to Rio is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am flying from Chicago to Houston and connecting to Brazil. Is one hour enough time to make an international connection?
Yes, all you have to do on your way to Brazil is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi We are due to fly into IAH from London LHR with 1.5 hrs to connect to a Guatemala flight. Is this feasible? We have heard very negative comments from other UK travellers about the length of time it takes to get through immigration at IAH. Thanks
That is risky. It's not impossible though. You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
