  • Do I need to transfer baggage between terminals after immigration?
    Jun 4, 2015
    Hi, I will be reaching EWR via a Lufthansa flight on June 16, 2015. My flight arrives at Terminal C. However, I have a connecting flight from Terminal C. (Both the flights have been booked on the same ticket). I understand that I will have to go through customs and security check. My question is that Do I need to transfer my baggage (checked in) between terminals or is there a facility to drop off the baggage at the same terminal where I land and then take the connecting airtrain? Thanks


    Yes, after you go through customs you can immediately drop your bags back off at the re-check desk, you don't have to transfer terminals with them.


    Thanks a ton! This is a relief.


  • Connecting Flight

    I'm coming from Norfolk Virginia going to Newark by United Express and then going Narita by United. Do I have to claim my baggage and check-in again.


    No you do not, there us no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate, which will likely be in Terminal A to your departure gate in Terminal C. A shuttle bus connects Terminal A and C inside security.


  • Almost 24 hours to spare in Newark
    Feb 8, 2015
    Hi. In 6 days from now I will travel from Ottawa to Costa Rica, via Newark. In Newark I have almost 24 hours until my flight leaves. I therefore have a few questions: - Is it possible to leave the airport during this time? - Will my baggage be transferred automatically? - Is it easy to get to and from New York? - Are there any hotels nearby? - Flight leaves from Newark 07:15am. How early should I be back at the airport minimum? Thank you!


    Yes, you can leave the airport. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa and can go wherever you want upon arrival. Due to the lenght of your transfer you WILL have to claim your baggage upon arrival in Newark. There are many hotels near the Newark Airport. I think you should get to the airport at around 5:45 AM for your flight to Costa Rica.


    Okay. Thank you very much!

  • Travelling from Mumbai (India) to Austin (Texas)
    Jan 1, 2015
    I am traveling from Mumbai to Newyork (JFK) and then EWR to question is 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.


  • do I have to check out my bags and go through immigration check
    May 25, 2014
    my flight is from bombay to STL united airlines, I have 2 hours layover in EWR. and have to catch United flight from EWR to chicago and then to STL. do I have to check out my bags in EWR and go through immigration check and check in again?


    Yes you need to go through passport check/ pick up bags; go through customs clearance & re-check-in bags. Note that United Airlines uses TC for its domestic & international flights - arrivals & departures, and Terminal B for some international arrivals - meaning you could arrive at either TB or TC. (United Express uses both TA & TC for its domestic arrival & departures). The AirTrain connects all 3 terminals of EWR, but in the unsecured areas - if you need to switch terminals, you will need to go through security check first at your departing terminal. Make sure your bags are tagged for ALL airports with their Airport Code. For your Chicago (O'Hare of Midway?) connection, I suggest you open, (ORD is O'Hare; MDW is Midway) then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Travel to England, UK
    Dec 28, 2013
    I will be flying from Montreal, Canada to Newark arriving at terminal A, then making a connecting flight from Newark to London, England at terminal C, I only have 90 minutes to run from TA to TC, my question is do I have enough time to make the flight and do I have to check out my luggage and check in again for the flight to UK? Remember I fly from Montreal, Canada, please advise


    Were your tickets bought on one reservation? Are you flying United with both flights? If so you will pre-clear US Immigration in Montreal and your arrival in Newark will be just like a domestic flight. Then you can take the secure-side United shuttle bus from Terminal A to Terminal C. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.
