    I have a 1 hr layover arriving and departing from terminal c. Do I have enough time to go out and smoke? From my research I have found out that I would have to go through security again.

     

    I probably wouldn't but if your flight is on-time you probably do if you hurry.

     

    I know it's risky. I have never been through that airport so I wasn't sure where you have to go and how long it will take to get back through security on a normal day there. I from Columbus and it never takes more than 10-15 minutes.

     

  • Glasgow via Newark to either toronto yyz or buffalo buf

    International flight from Glasgow UK united. To either buffalo or toronto as based in niagara Canada side 30th December with 2hr 10minute layover I need wheel chair. What is best connecting flight to choose and is this enough time and what is process

     

    As to wheelchair or special needs accommodation, you need to contact United. You will arrive at EWR at Terminal C, where you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and re-check-in bags where indicated. Your connecting flight to Toronto would be in the same terminal, while a United Buffalo departure may be out of Terminal A, reached via Airtrain, which takes no more than 10 mins, but you need to go through security check at TA before proceeding to your gate. At Buffalo Airport, Canadian and US travelers can take either the on-site Airport Taxi (1-800-551-4369), the Airport Express (1-800-604-1570) or the Airport Shuttle (1-888-402-6606)--among many other options. At Toronto you have more transportation options.

     

    If both flights leave at the same time then just choose whichever destination is easier for you or costs less. Both will likely leave out of the same part of the terminal at Newark and both entail the same procedures in Newark - you will have to go through US immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, then re-check your bags, then possibly go to a different terminal where United Express operates, then go through security and to your gate. If you fly to Toronto, you will go through Canadian immigration when you arrive in Toronto. You can request wheelchair service from United over the phone after you book your ticket.

     

  • Time to go back through security?

    My girlfriend is flying in from West Palm Beach to catch a flight to London. She has about a 1 1/2 hour layover in Newark (8:05-9:40pm). Will she have enough time to leave the secure area and go back through so I can say goodbye?! The chart says terminal C security takes only a few minutes between 8 and 9pm. Thoughts?

     

    Yes, security lines should be pretty short that time of night. If her flight is on-time she should have a few minutes.
