  • Fly in from LoveField to get on Flight to Buenos Aries
    Jan 14, 2014
    We scheduled to arrive @ 820 PM (UA flight) and need to get on UA flight to Buenos Aries @ 900 PM. Since we've never been to IAH, I can see a big problem looming and I couldn't find any UA live help. Please help. Thanks.


    That is barely enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E. They are connected beyond security by the TerminaLink train. Your flight from DAL will have to be on-time.


  • 32 minutes between flights? Will we make it?
    Dec 27, 2013
    United changed our flight times. We arrive from Newark at 12:04. Flight leaves IAH at 12:36 for Orange County. It looks like we will arrive and depart from the same terminal- C- although the departure gate has not been announced yet. I am a nervous wreck!! Will we make it?!


    by the way, we leave tomorrow!!


    Yes, both of your flights will likely be in C. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.


  • arrive from Chi with 55 minutes to transfer to POS with UA
    Dec 26, 2013
    is that enough time?


    Yes if your first flight is on time. You will arrive in C or E and depart from C.


    Sorry you will depart from E not C.


  • Terminal D Check in
    Dec 16, 2013
    I am flying IAH to Dubai with Emirates from Terminal D. I have very restricted mobility. Emirates will provide wheelchair from Check In desk only. From limo drop off is it far to check in ? Are there valets available at drop off to take luggage ?


  • Travelling with children
    Dec 10, 2013
    Hi My wife is arriving at IAH from Dubai with 2 kids (4yrs and 1 yr) She also has 6 checked in bags. is there any way i can arrange for some one to help her. she and my elder son can walk, and she cannot carry the younger once and get the bags by herself what would be the best way to get help


    There are baggage carts available for free in International baggage claim. If she cannot get the bags from the belt to the cart she will just have to ask someone to help her. http://www.fly2houston.com/iah-terminals-and-amenities


  • rechecking bags from another airline
    Oct 21, 2013
    I have a connecting flight in Houston -- arriving in on an UA flight and transfering onto a Westjet flight. I understand I need to claim my bags in Houston, where would I need to go to recheck my bags with Westjet?


    Westjet does not fly to IAH. Please double check your itinerary to find the carrier that is operating your flight.

  • how do I get from gate A3D to gate C-43
    May 23, 2013
    Can anyone tell me how to get from gate A3D to gate C-43


    You arrive at Terminal A and need to take the above-ground TerminaLink train (follow signs), at the Terminal A station, connecting to Terminal C inside security. On arrival there, follow signs to the gateway to gates C43-C45


  • IS 39 mins time enough
    May 13, 2013
    I am arriving on 5/26/13 flight 1267,terminal B. I leave on flight 4138 terminal C at 1:46pm. Will we make the flight. How can I find out which way to go when we get off the 1st plane,so that we are heading in the right direction for the 2nd flight?


    What airport are you talking about? Are you flying United at IAH? You might have your terminals backwards, United 1267 would arrive in C or E and 4138 would likely depart from B. Or are you talking about EWR?


  • Flying from Austin-IAH-SJO (Costa Rica)
    May 2, 2013
    My family is flying from Austin to Costa Rica, but we go through IAH both ways. I see lots of helpful advice about understanding that we must clear customs in Houston on the way back. Does anyone know if we have to clear customs in Houston on our way TO Costa Rica, from Austin? Can we not clear customs in Austin and then not worry about having to re-check out bags in Houston on our way to Costa Rica? Thanks!


    No, the only time you will go through any immigration on the way TO Costa Rica is when you get to Costa Rica. In IAH on the way there you will just have to go from your arriving gate to your departing gate - you won't have to do anything with your bags.


    Awesome, thank you for the info.


  • Customs & Baggage/security
    Mar 5, 2013
    Hello, Coming through customs from Costa Rica, if I have checked my bag in Liberia will it go straight through to my final diestination or do I need to pick it up and go through security again for my connecting domestic flight?


    When you arrive in the US you will clear immigration, claim your bag, go through customs, then recheck your bag with your airline. However, it will have a bag tag placed on it in Liberia to your final destination, so all you have to do is drop it off.


  • US Customs Office at IAH
    Jan 6, 2013
    I need to export some merchandise, flying Air France outbound to Paris. Where is the US Customs office?


    Call IAH at 281-230-3100 or e-main info@fly2houston.com


  • Clearing Customs - Time Needed
    Dec 27, 2012
    1/12/2013, I will arrive in flight UA1401 from Bonaire at 11:43 a.m. My connecting flight, UA 684, departs Huston at 12:56 noon. Time total is 1 hour 13 minutes. Is that enough time to clear customs and catch my flight?


    As an international arrival at IAH you need to go through passport check, pick up your bag, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag where indicated. United uses Terminals A, B, C & E. After customs clearance in the International Arrivals building (follow signs), go straight out to the International Arrivals Lobby, take escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminals A, B & C, which runs in a continuous loop. On arrival of your connecting terminal, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Gate numbers correspond with Terminals, i.e., Gate E12 -Terminal E. You should have sufficient time for transfer.

    If you pick up by car, you have the option of parking in the cell phone lot ('Passenger Pickup Lot')--stay with your vehicle until your party has gathered luggage and calls you to be picked up at the curb. To access the lot, whether you are approaching the airport using John F. Kennedy Boulevard or Will Clayton Parkway, just follow the purple signs to the entrance. (Or use the garage for short-term parking). For paging call 281-230-3000. If arriving taxi, you will, on entering the terminal, see the ticket counters in front of you. Take the escalator to Level 1 - International Arrivals - with a lobby /passenger greeting area.
