G Bush Airport Question

Recommended Posts

Flying in the day of the cruise, scheduled to arrive at 8:55am.

Can we get our checked luggage and then catch a 10am shuttle to the port.

Would an hour or so be enough time to do this?

Thanks.

If your flight arrives on time , you have no problem .

I normally fly in/out of Hobby.

The last time I flew into Bush, I remember having to trek across to another terminal to get to baggage claim. And the same on my departing flight. Check-in was in one terminal, but I had to trek across to another terminal for my flight. I believe I was flying United/Continental (yeah, its been quite a few years). I think my flights were in/out of the terminal for international arrivals/departures, but we were domestic.

I see that you live in the Chicago area. There are any number of flights from Midway to Hobby on Southwest, a much better choice for getting to a Galveston cruise as both are MUCH smaller airports than O'Hare and Bush Intercontinental.

Like the other poster stated, if you're flight is on time, you'll have your bags by 9:30 and plenty of time to catch the shuttle - although you may want to ensure your terminal of arrival and where the shuttle departs from (or if it makes stops at all terminals).  IAH is actually a pretty easy airport.

As with all same-day arrival situations, if your flight is late you have to be ready to simply get a taxi and go.  If that's okay with you then go with the plan. If you want some play in the schedule get a shuttle an hour later.
