  • Fears about two hour and 25 min layover
    Aug 16, 2016

    I fly out of EWR. I will have a checked bag and a carryon. There is a layover in Brussels for 2 hours and 25 minuets. I will also be switching from United Airlines to Brussels Air. My final destination is Seville, Spain. Will I need to pick up my checked bag and then re-check it? Do I go through customs in Brussels or Seville? If so to both where do I go and should I have enough time to do all that?

     

    You will go through passport control in Brussels. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You have enough time.

    My flight to Newark was rerouted to Syracuse. I finally landed in Newark but missed my connecting flight to Stockholm. My bag was checked through to Stockholm, Sweden. What is your protocol to get bags to their destination with delayed passengers. I was put on a later flight to Zurich and then to Stockholm. . I am in Stockholm with no bag. When will it arrive??

     

    You will have to contact United baggage service. They will probably put it on the next nonstop from Newark to Stockholm.

     

  • Luggage from EWR to JFK?

    Within a single United ticket, I arrive to EWR and 12 hours later I depart from JFK. Is it possible that they transfer the checked luggage from airport to the other or should I carry it myself? Thank you!

     

    You will HAVE to transfer the baggage yourself. Also, United doesn't fly to or from JFK.

     

  • Transfer with twin babies

    Hi, I will fly with twin babies (6 months) from tlv to EWR and than further to DC.All with United. Is the luggage checked through? Or do we have to collect an re check in. Since we are flying with 2 babies and lots of luggage and strollers etc- is there any service or other help we can make use of?

     

    Your bags are tagged through to DC, but in Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go to your departure terminal and through security. There are carts available for use in the International baggage claim.

     

    This is know I am asking on tbe return journey will United check them all the way to bne from cle asking as United is not codes hare with qantas. But it's all ticketed on the 1 ticket

     

    If all flights are on the same reservation then your bags will be checked through to Brisbane. United and Qantas do have an interline agreement.

     

  • Baggage storage /safe-keeping

    Hi, I will be sending unaccompanied minors abroad, and taking a flight to a different destination afterwards. I will have access to take my children all the way to the boarding gate to see them off. The problem is that I will have my own suitcase along, but I am not sure if I will be allowed to tow it all the way there (past the on-board baggage check etc.) Is there a place for me to leave it for safe-keeping?

    Hello there,I will be travelling from Vancouver to Newark and then to Mumbai with 3 Hrs halt at Newark.Do I have to recheckin my baggage at Newark?If so then is 3 hrs halt enough?Also,Iam Indian Passport with Canadian PR,I also have US Visitor Visa.Can I use my visitor visa from Transiting US?Or do I have to get another TRansit Visa. Thanks in Advance for response,

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. Yes, you can use your visitor visa for transit. If both flights are on United 3 hours should be plenty of time, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Hallo there, i have a (nearly) similar problem. That means we will fligh tomorrow with UA1047 from Cancun Mexico to EWR s(upposendly Terminal B) and round about 2h later with UA962 from terminal C to Berlin Germany. I got some confusing information regarding the baggage - Do I need o pick up my baggage at Ewr befor immigration (to carry it over the border by myself) or dont I and can go straight to my departure-gate after passing the immigration without touching my baggage at all?

    My first flight is UA6198, and then my connecting flight is UA807. Do I need to get my baggage and recheck in again? I'm worried since there's only 56 mins between the two flights? I know that I will have been already passed the American custom in Toronto Pearson Airport .

    Hi, I am flying from Atlanta to Mumbai with Uniteed. I have two connecting flight: Atlanta - Washington DC Washington DC - Newark Newark - Mumbai I have 1hr50 at Newark. Is it enough to catch the next flight to Mumbai ? Will I have to recheck my luggage ? Will I have to go through immigration ? Thanks

     

    You don't have to do anything with your baggage in Newark on your way to Mumbai. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal C. If you arrive in Terminal A there is a shuttle bus inside security between A and C. You have enough time. You will show your passport to the gate agent when boarding the flight to Mumbai, this is how they record that you left the country.

     

    Thank you very much

     

    One quick question. Do I have to go through security once more at Newark ?

     

  • Recheck baggage if on route to an international destination

    I am travelling from Toronto (Pearson) to Mumbai, through EWR(liberty international). All my flights are booked through a single booking. Will I need to reclaim my baggage at EWR and recheck it in for my next flight to Mumbai. What exactly is the procedure and how much time would I need?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. For the exact procedure in Newark I need to know what airlines you are flying.

     

    I am travelling on air India to Mumbai

     

    And what airline are you flying from Toronto? Were your tickets purchased on the same reservation or two separate reservations?

     

    I am flying by Air Canada and yes the flights were booked on the same ticket.

     

    Then you will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Newark both in Terminal B. I believe Air Canada and Air India are in different satellites, so if that's the case then you will have to go through security on your way to your departure gate.

     

    Air canada flight 7650 arrives at terminal A. My air india flight departs from terminal B

     

    Then you will take the AirTrain from Terminal A to Terminal B and go through security and to your departure gate.

    I'm flying from munich with Lufthansa arriving in terminal B in EWR and then going in to terminal C to go to Panama and the airlines is changing. It is a whole flight ticket bought on internet - will I have to pick up the luggage and than to chek in it again or it goes automatically till the end?

     

    Yes, in Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security.

    I have a flight UA8100 on Tuesday that is operated by Air Canada I have air Canada's travel awards, would I have to collect my luggage for my connecting flight UA81 or would it be directed to my final destination.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. In Newark you will have to take the AirTrain from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security but you won't have to do anything with your bags.

    Flying from Vancouver, BC on Air Canada. Changing plane in Newark. After 3 hrs continue with United to Puerto Rico. Will my luggage be sent all the way through from Vancouver to Puerto Rico or I will have to pick it up and check-in again in Newark?

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. Assuming both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be checked through to Puerto Rico and you don't have to do anything with it in Newark. You have plenty of time for your connection.

  • Travelling from Mumbai (India) to Austin (Texas)

    I am traveling from Mumbai to Newyork (JFK) and then EWR to Austin..my question is that...do I need to collect my check in baggages from JFK and take them to EWR and again check in? OR airline will take care of that....moreover, how can i commute to EWR from JFK?

     

    You will have to claim your baggage in JFK and take it to Newark. A taxi between JFK and EWR is about $100. You can take the JFK Airtrain to the LIRR to Penn Station and then transfer to the NJT to the Newark AirTrain. Leave at least 4 hours for your transfer.

    I will be buying a bottle of duty free whisky at Gva - my flight arrives at Newark and then have a connection to Nashville - can I carry the whisky as hand luggage on my flight to Nashville

     

    No, you cannot. You have to put it in your checked baggage or mail it to yourself in Newark.
