  • Do I pick up luggage or dies United keep it during layover

    I am flying with United from London Heathrow, stopping at Newark for 8hrs and then continuing with United to West Palm Beach. Do I need to collect my bags in Newark or does United send them straight to West Pal Beach?

     

    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 and to your departure gate.

    I'll arrive at 6AM to Terminal B, my next flight to Boston is at 6PM from Terminal A. I plan to visit NYC. Please advice when i need to be back in EWR airport for the next flight? At what time do i need to board the train at Penn Station? Are there round trip tickets available at EWR for NJ Transit ? Thanks a lot.

     

    You need to be on the train at Penn Station at about 3 PM to be comfortably back at EWR on-time.

    Dear Friends, I have a 5 hrs 40 Min layover in Newark port. Will it be sufficient for me to quickly see Statue of liberty and get back to airport to board my flight? Can i do this after i check in my luggage to United and then can i go?

     

    No, that's not really enough time.

    I'll arrive at 6AM to Terminal B, my next flight to Boston is at 6PM from Terminal A. I am NOT flying United. Any ideas where i can left my luggage in EWR to be able to have a quick visit to NYC?

     

    There is no luggage storage at EWR. If you take the NJT into Manhattan there is a luggage storage place near Penn Station.

     

    Can you advise on the storage place please?

     

    The Businesses are named Luggage Keeper and Schwartz Luggage Storage NYC.

    I will arrive to Newark at 12,36 and the flight for Milan will depart at 6,25PM I will have enough time to go to Liberty Statue Park? Can someone tell me how to get there? Thank you

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The best way is a taxi. you will have to call a taxi to go back to the airport. Note that even though it's not far away, it will still be about a $40 taxi ride each way.

    My flight will arrive in Terminal C and I have 45 minutes to hop on to the next flight in Terminal B. Is 45 minutes goo enough? Any express way to get there faster?

     

    What airline are you flying out of Terminal B? Are both flights on the same reservation? Where are you flying from and to?

    If I arrive by united from Canada, and am flying out to Lima, also through United, and the gates are in the same terminal and I already have my boarding pass, do I need to check in any where? Or do I just show up at the gate with my pass?

     

    You just need to show up at the gate with your boarding pass.

     

  • International Layover in Newark

    I have an 87 minute layover in Newark, coming from Columbus then heading down to the Caribbean. Will this be enough time to get from Terminal A to C and go through customs in time? I have one checked bag so Idk if this affects it too. Both flights are on United

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the shuttle from A to C and walk to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Columbus is on-time.

     

  • Lisbon to Newark - Newark to Denver

    I have two flights booked separately. One from Lisbon Portugal flying TAP landing at 3:50pm. My second flight leaves from Newark to Denver via Southwest at 6:15pm. If I don't check luggage, can I pull it off?

     

    With no checked bags you have a chance assuming everything goes smoothly and you check in for your Southwest flight before leaving Lisbon.

    fly with United air from Boston to Beijing china, I have to transfer at Newark with 1:47 min layover. Do i have to collect my luggage and re-check in? what is the distance between the two terminals? the time enough? .

     

    If both flights are on United you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark and likely don't even have to change terminals. You have enough time.

    I booked a flight with United and have 1hr 45 minutes layover between the flight (Spain-EWR) to the domestic flight EWR-IAH. I need to get through customs and straight to the gate? Do I have to pick up and check again my luggage? Will this be enough? Any advice?

     

    No need to ask the same question twice.

    Hi. I am a tourist, travelling from Newark airport, with a 1.5hr layover at PHL before heading to New Hampshire Manchester airport. I bought tickets under American AIrlines from EWR straight to MHT. Do I have to go through US customs & check in my baggage again at PHL?

     

    There is no US Immigration or Customs when flying on domestic flights. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire are all located in the United States of America. You will go through security in Newark. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
