    My flight from LAX arrives at IAH at 7:50 pm connecting flight to SCL(Santigo Chile) is 1 hour and 15 min later will I be able to make this connection? do I have have to go back through security and get my luggage???


    No, assuming both of your flights are on United you do not have to go through security or do anything with your baggage, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate, which will likely be in Terminal C to your departure gate in Terminal E. C and E are directly connected.


  • Terminal E to the Marriott Hotel

    I'll be checked in at Terminal E on Friday, but need to print out some docs. How long will it take me to get to the Marriott Hotel Business Center. Is it possible? Thanks in advance :)


    THe Inter-Terminal train goes to the marriott - it will take maybe 20 minutes each way.

    Arriving UA from LHR connecting to CUN do I have to collect checked baggage and re-check for the onward flight? I am told it would be checked all the way through from LHR


    I recently found out that IAH is part of a pilot program where most passengers traveling on a single International->International connecting itinerary do not have to claim their baggage to go through US Customs. However, please double check this with the United agent in London.


  • 53 min?
    Jul 28, 2014
    Flight 4540 wil arrive at 8:19pm and my connecting flight 350 to SFO will leave 53 minutes later at 9:12 pm. Is 53 minutes enough time to transfer flights?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from terminal C or E. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    I will be coming from LAX arrival time 7:02 pm and have connecting flight to DTW departing at7:57pm will I have enough time, do I need to go through security again and do you know what gates I would be arriving and departing?


    You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from B or C. The TerminaLink Train connects all terminals inside security in the event that you have to change terminals.


  • Need to know arriving and departing gates

    7/30/14, 10:28 am flight 401 arriving from Logsn; 7/30/14 departing flight .5186 11:59 am to Albuquerque. Would like to know arriving and departing gates


    UA401 will arrive in Terminal C and 5186 will depart from B. C and B are connected by the TerminaLink train inside security.


  • Is 41 minutes enough time?
    Jul 25, 2014
    Flight UA5151 arriving IAH 12:15pm. My departing flight UA1401 from IAH leaves 41 minutes later at 12:56pm. Will I have enough time? I don't know which terminals?


    UA 5151 will arrive in C. UA 1401 will depart from C if domestic and E if international. You should have enough time in either case as C and E are directly connected and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    My flight is scheduled to arrive in Houston at 12:02 pm and my connecting flight to Port of Spain Trinidad departs at 12:53 pm. Is 51 minutes sufficient time to exit the plane, clear customs and re-check? I need to know if this is possible.


    On your way to POS, you do not have to clear customs and re-check in IAH. You do not go through US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Trinidad Immigration when you get to POS. All you will have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate in Terminal C to Departure gate in Terminal E. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hello, I will be arriving from New York to Houston (terminal C) and taking my next plane to McAllen (terminal B). The problem is I only have an hour. Will it be enough time?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. C and B are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.


  • GUA-IAH-YYZ 1H30M transfer time in IAH
    Jul 24, 2014
    Hi, I am flying GUA-IAH-YYZ-TLV with 1H30M tranfer time in IAH, will this be enough? Please note that I am not an american citizen and need go throw immigration. All the flights are with air Canada. Thanks


    Please check your itinerary. Your GUA-IAH flight will be operated by United. Your IAH-YYZ flight could be operated by United Express OR Air Canada. Who operates it will really impact your connection as if it's operated by Air Canada you will have to take the TerminaLink Train all the way to Terminal A after clearing US Customs and re-checking your baggage, but if it's operated by United Express it will leave from B or C. Your connection time is possible but leaves very little spare time for any delays.


  • FRA-IAH-CUN, 1H50M transfer time on 23 Dec
    Jul 24, 2014
    Hi, will be flying FRA-IAH-CUN on 23/12 with 1H50M(110M) transfer time at IAH. Is that enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be in Terminal E, but you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag with United, then go through security and back to the departure gates.


  • 33 minute layover
    Jul 21, 2014
    Flying into IAH from PDX (Portland, OR) to MCO (Orlando) via United. Just realized we have only 33 minutes between the time we land and the time the next flight departs for MCO. Seated at the back of the plane on the first flight with 5 children and concerned we might not make the connection. Appreciate any advice!


    If your first flight is on-time you should be OK. Both flight should be in Terminal C. However, if there are any delays it will be tough. If you miss your connection United has many flights from IAH to MCO, however, I don't know how late in the day your original itinerary is so there may not be later options and you may be stuck in Houston overnight.


  • What gate will I arrive at tomorrow from RDU at 12:53
    Jul 15, 2014
    I need to find out which terminal or gate I will be arriving at to make arrangements to get to my departure gate. I have bad vision.


    There is no RDU-IAH flight scheduled for tomorrow that arrives at 12:53. Please double check your itinerary at United.com

    Trying to get from Cancun to Narita with a 1H12M connection in IAH. Will I be able to go from plane to plane without needing to go through any additional screening?


    All on UAL that is.


    United Airlines uses Terminal E for both international arrivals & departures. On arrival you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in bag, proceed to level 2 and clear security, then turn left for E1-24. You have plenty of time for transfer.


    Actually, 1 hr 12 minutes is less than the minimum connection time for such a transfer. You should contact your travel agent or United to reschedule. Hopefully there is an earlier flight from Cancun or they can route you through a different United hub.
