  • Long layover Hotel
    Jan 5, 2015
    I am flying into Newark from Israel on 2/12/15 at 0430 and out to LAX at 1930. Is there a hotel I can stay for a few hours?


    There are lots of hotels near Newark but I don't know how many you could check in at 6 AM. You might want to get a list of nearby ones (Wyndham, Marriott) and then call them when you arrive to see if any of them have any rooms available for immediate check in. You could also spend the day in the United Club. They sell day passes and the one near Gate C120 has shower facilities.

    i'am flying into terminal c from Dublin with a 6 hour lay over is it ok to leave the terminal to visit some friend's locally


    Yes, you will have already cleared US Immigration and there's nobody guarding the doors to the airport. You'll have to go through security again when you come back.


  • Connect to Int'l Flight in EWR on UA
    Aug 10, 2014
    U.S. citizen with ticket from DC to Newark to Lisbon with connection. Both UA flights. Looks like UA express usually lands in Terminal A and overnight int'l flight goes out of C. Can I assume that when I get to EWR I will take the air train to terminal C, go through security there, and be on my way? Have over 2 hrs. to connect, and flight to EWR has good on time record. Assume I should be fine, as long as flight isn't drastically late, right?


    This is the latest United/ United Express (both tel. 1-800-241-6522) information: 1. United Airlines uses for its departures TC, and for its Arrivals TB (International) & TC (Domestic & International) - both at their level 1. 2. United Express uses for its departures TA & TC, and for its Arrivals TB TA, level 2 & TC, level 1. 3. If landing at TA, simply take the shuttle (near gate A28) to TC (near gate C71) - no security check needed. Between Terminal B & C you need the Airtrain and have to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate.


  • Can I leave airport
    Apr 20, 2014
    I am travelling from Chicago to Mumbai with a stopover at Newark. The duration of the stopover is 12 hours. I have a valid H1 B visa. Can I leave the newark airport and come back for my next flight.


    Yes, you can. There's nobody checking visas/identification when leaving the airport. Also an H1B visa allows you to travel within the United States as much as you want.


    Thanks ZAP


  • Smoking
    Jan 7, 2014
    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.
