  • 2 hrs layover
    Mar 27, 2017
    Hi I have a 2 hrs layover. My flight is from Tokyo to EWR, and from EWR to MCO, so is 2hrs enough? both flights are United airline. thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Average time for international travellers to leave EWR airport
    Feb 28, 2017
    I will be arriving from MXP to EWR at 2:15 pm for the first time in US. I was wondering if I would make it to Newark Penn station in 2 hours to catch a train or bus at 4:15 pm.


    I think that would be very difficult. I would say the whole process (immigration, customs, airtrain, NJT Train) will take 2-3 hours.


    Thanks for the reply, how about Amtrak train from EWR


    Do you mean to board an Amtrak Train to somewhere other than New York-Penn or to take the Amtrak to NY Penn. Amtrak takes the same amount of time to get from EWR to NYP and just runs less often, but you could book an Amtrak train leaving EWR 2 hours after your flight arrives and make it if it is on-time.


    Thanks that was helpful! I should take Amtrak directly from EWR to Baltimore.


  • Connection Time

    Travelling from Toronto, Canada to Rome, Italy with a 3 hour connection in Newark. Do I have to collect my bags and recheck them? Do I have to clear US Customs? Or do I just have to clear security again?


    I should mention the Toronto to Newark flight is Air Canada and the Newark to Rome flight is United.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Newark is take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security.


  • domestic layover
    Feb 16, 2017
    I will be travelling from atlanta to Geneva via Newark. My layover is 1 hour 40 minutes. Both the flghts are united airlines (under 1 ticket) and originate from Terminal C. a) Is 1hr 40 minutes enough to catch the international flight ? b) Do i have to go through security again @Newark ? Where do i have to go through the departure immigration?


    Yes, that is enough time. There is no such thing as "departure immigration". All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • coonnection PLS to DTW

    Is 1 hr 19 min on United enough time to connect from Turks and Caicos to DTW?


    No, that is not realistically enough time. You need at least 2 hours.


  • Newark to JFK
    Jan 26, 2017
    I booked a flight from Vancouver to Newark and then on to Dublin. I realised yesterday that I have to change airport to JFK. I have 4 hours and ten minutes if my flight is on time. Will i make this flight?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. It will take you nearly 2 hours to go between airports and likely cost over $100 unless you take the EWR AirTrain to New Jersey Transit to Penn Station to the LIRR to the JFK AirTrain, which will take maybe a little longer, but only cost about $30.


  • Do I pick up luggage or dies United keep it during layover
    Jan 7, 2017
    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.


  • When to be back on time for the connection flight
    Jan 7, 2017
    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.


  • Layover Ideas - Statue of Liberty
    Jan 6, 2017
    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.


  • Luggage storage for 10 hours
    Jan 4, 2017
    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.


  • to Liberty Statue Park
    Jan 4, 2017
    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.


  • Termina C to Terminal B, 45 mins layover good enough?
    Dec 17, 2016
    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?


  • Check in?
    Dec 16, 2016
    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
    Dec 9, 2016
    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
    Nov 29, 2016
    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.
