  • EWR Long layover - using post security lounge
    Oct 12, 2016
    We are flying BOM - EWR and then EWR - MCO. our international (BOM-EWR) flight reaches EWR at 5:40 am and the domestic flight (EWR-MCO) is at 21:00 hours (9 pm) So we have a really long layover of about 15 hours. Both are on United and both flights use terminal C. We have some passes fro the United club. So is it possible to use the United club - domestic lounge near gate C 120 after we clear the immigration, and recheckin the bags? Is it possible to go out to new York after using the United Lounge (for shower and refreshments) for some sightseeing and then come back later?


    Yes, after you go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security, you can go to the United club and stay there until about 8 PM when you should head to the gate for your Orlando flight. Alternatively, yes, you can go through security to use the lounge, then leave, go somewhere, return the airport and go back through security and depart (note that you won't be able to go back to the lounge). Also note that EWR is about an hour by train from the city.


    Thanks for your reply. The United Club near Gate C 120 is post security? So Once we go though the security can we again come out ... why I am asking is most of the Airports in India do not allow you to come out of the airport once you go past the security and you just have to wait till you catch your flight. Thanks in advance.


    Yes, the United States is not India, you can leave security and go back in all you want as long as you have time to do so. Yes, all United Clubs at EWR are post-security.




  • Time allowance for customs before connecting flight?
    Sep 22, 2016
    I'm flying into Newark and then on from there -- how much time should I allow before my connecting (US) flight? I'll have to go through customs first (coming from Toronto).


    If you're coming from Toronto you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs there. If everything is on the same reservation then an hour in Newark is sufficient.


  • Customs Question
    Sep 22, 2016
    im flying from fort myers florida to newark and then on to ottawa ontario do i need to go thru us customs there at newark or when i land in ottawa with so many changes i want to make sure before i book a flight as stated above and only have 1 hour and 5 minutes bewtween flights


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Ottawa. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will arrive in Terminal C and likely depart from Terminal A. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from C to A.


    Thank you for your response but I've heard that a terminal change requires going thru security again if this is true then one hour and five minutes would not be enough to time ?


    If both flights are on United/United Express that is NOT true. United runs a shuttle bus inside security.


  • terminal C
    Sep 20, 2016
    FYI. Flew into Terminal C domestically. Have a PriorityPass for the club in Terminal B. Glad we checked first. I didn't know that if I left Terminal C to go to Terminal B we would have to go through TSA again. WTF. No ability to go between terminals securely!!!?? Crazy!!!


  • Need help

    My brother and his wife are flying to China from Newark airport. They don't speak English. Does Newark airport has any kind of service to help them to check in ?


    There is no such service, however, if they are flying Air China at least some of the agents will speak Mandarin and if they are flying United then I believe the kiosks can be changed to be in Chinese.


  • Getting out of the airport

    If one has a long lay over in EWR flying in from europe can they go out of the airport with their baggage to meet a friend and later go thro' the standard baggage check and security for the next flight within usa


    Yes, you can. Once you clear US Immigration and customs you are in the United States and legally free to go where you want.


  • Do I have to claim luggage
    Jul 11, 2016
    I am flying on Lithuania from Newcastle UK to Panama SA. Do I have to claim luggage and go through immigration


    Yes, 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 through security.


  • Early morning security clearance
    Jul 8, 2016
    I am traveling from Newark to Phoenix, via United, with 2 twelve year old kids on Sunday July 10th. The plane departs at 7:30 AM. How early should we arrive to get thru the security check on time? I assume the line is not as long so early in the AM, and getting up extra early is not my goal


    I would get there at 5:30 AM.

  • SFO - EWR - MUMBAI Layover time
    May 23, 2016
    Hi, i am travelling from SF to Mumbai via EWR. there are 2 options from SF to EWR one has a gap of 3 hours and one has gap of 2 hrs 30 mins. Is either one of them enough to change the terminal? do i need to get the bags and recheck them again? please advice.


    Either is enough. If both flights are on United you don't have to change terminals or do anything with your bags.


  • Enough time for connection?
    Apr 14, 2016
    We are flying United from Duesseldorf arriving at 3.35 pm at terminal B with a connecting flight at 5 pm to Los Angeles from terminal C. Will we have time to pick up luggage, go through immigration, re-check luggage and then change terminals? Is there a helping person at EWR we can ask to guide us to catch our flight? We will be two adults. Thank you!


    You don't need to ask the same question every day. I've already answered this.


    sorry, couldn't find it and didn't get the answer notification. thanks for your help anyway.


  • Changing Termina
    Apr 13, 2016
    We are Flying United from Duesseldorf arriving 3.35 pm at terminal B with a connecting flight to Los Angeles at 5 pm. I have learned from the posts below, that it will hard to catch the flight. Would there be a person we can go to after arriving who could help us where to go without loosing too much time?


    There's no person you can go to to help you. Just move as fast as you can and you can make it.


  • Connecting flight
    Apr 11, 2016
    My flight UA9257 from DUS will arrive October 1st at 3.25 pm, connecting flight to LAX UA1600 departs at 5 p.m. Only 1:35 h. Is it possible to reach the connecting flight, with immigration, baggage check etc? Will we have to change terminals? Thanks a lot for your help!


    UA 9257 is Lufthansa 408. You will arrive in Terminal B, 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, go through security and to your departure gate. This is a very very difficult connection in the time you have. However, United has practically hourly flights from EWR to LAX if you miss your connection.
