  • Meeting someone during layover at IAH
    Nov 21, 2014

    My friend will be flying on United Airlines from Gulfport, Mississippi to Houston, Texas on December 21. She will fly on flight UA4588. Her flight arrives in Houston at 7:57 AM, and then she will fly out at 11:25 AM that morning. We plan to meet during this time, which is the reason for her long layover. Arriving in Terminal A that morning, where would be the place to meet her at? I will not be going through security as I will not be flying, so I need somewhere to meet that is outside security. She will need to head back through security and get to Terminal B to catch her departing flight. I have 2 questions: a) Where does she go after arriving in Terminal A to meet me? b) Where do I go after parking to go meet her? Thank you very much for any help!

    To meet arriving pax from UA 965 from FRA. Don't we meet then at Terminal E when they come through customs?

    Yes, there will be a place to meet them at the exit of Customs.

     

    That's what I thought - the travel agent told my son's school that you can meet the kids coming back from the trip at Terminal C - which I knew was not correct

    I will be arriving at iah from Victoria TX Pacific Air Will a hour be enough time to make a connect flight at United

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Try to check-in online for your United flight before leaving Victoria. All terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.

    Hello, I'll be arriving to Gate E at IAH since it's an international flight from Mexico to Houston with United Airlines 5221 next Sunday at 10:15, the layover lasts 3 hours and the next flight is to St. Louis- Lambert International Airport. I was wondering if I could meet a friend in the meantime. And if it is possible, how and where could I meet him?

     

    When you exit customs in Terminal E, after you re-check your baggage (if you have any) you will be outside the secure area. So, yes, they could meet you there.

     

    Thank you so much for replying! :)

    My wife is flying in on US Airways flight 673 from CLT I know its terminal A but with no baggage to claim where is the best place to pick her up at?

     

    Still the arrivals level of Terminal A.

     

    What level is that?

     

    I believe arrivals are on the lower level.

    My dog is traveling on Turkish airlines from Dubai as cargo. Does anyone know where to pick her up? Thanks!!

     

    You need to call the Turkish Airlines affiliated agent you arranged for the dog's transport with. Chances are it will be some cargo office adjacent to the Houston airport.

  • Can we leave our luggage

    We arrive in Houston about noon and don't leave until noon the next day. Can we check our bags all the way they or will we have to take them to our hotel

     

    You will clear Immigration, collect your bags, and clear customs in T1. Then, if your bags are tagged through to Atlanta, you can then drop them at the re-check desk and go to T2 via the AirTrain, get your boarding pass, and go through security. If your bags are only checked through to JFK, then you will need to take your bags with you on the AirTrain to T2 to check them with Delta and get your Delta boarding pass. You do not have to go to T4 for anything.

     

  • Enough time?

    Arriving terminal A at 1:50. Leaving to Lima, Peru from terminal D at 3:50. Will I have enough time to get from one terminal to the other?

     

    Yes, that is definitely enough time. If you are flying United to Lima, you will depart from E, not D.

     

    Thanks

    We are flying from Philly to Guadalajara through Houston. On the way down, we have a 1:05 hour layover to get from Terminal C to Terminal E. Then on the return trip, we have to get from E back to C in an 1:45. Customs? Is this doable if flights are on time?

     

    That should be enough time both ways. Yes, on your return trip you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through customs, then re-check your bags and go through security. Also, note that most United Express departures to Guadalajara use Terminal B, not Terminal E and that United Express arrivals from Mexico use Terminal D, not E. Only if you are on a United mainline flight will you use Terminal E.

     

    Thank you for the response! One more question: walk between terminals or take a tram?

     

    On your flight to quadalajara, definitely take the TerminaLink Train as it connects all terminals quickly inside security. On the return I would probably go through security in your arrival terminal and then take the TerminaLink to your departure terminal (if necessary, it likely won't be as C is directly connected to D and E).
