Time for plane change/customs in Houston Hobby?

New Arrival

Hi,

 

I'm trying to figure out if an hour and 45 minutes is enough time to go through customs and change plans in houston hobby airport.  We will be arriving from Costa Rica at 1:45pm on a Sunday, and our next flight is 3:30 to California.  Is this reasonable, or insane?  There's a later flight, but it would be a five hour layover and would get us home really late with our three kids.

 

Thanks in advance.

If Southwest lets you book it, Southwest thinks you can make it.

The port of entry/customs at Hobby airport is quick - you definitely should be able to make it! Southwest is the only airline that customs serves at Hobby so you can expect relatively quick service. As a reminder, after clearing customs, the customs exit is in the ground transportation area, meaning that you will have to go through TSA security/re-check any bags for the second domestic leg of your trip.
