  • EWR international to domestic connection
    Feb 26, 2017
    I am arriving in EWR on an international United Airlines flight from India, and connecting to a domestic United flight to SFO. Only have 1 hr 15mins for the connection, Do I have to clear customs and security? Enough time?


  • B to C, international to cincinnati
    Feb 24, 2017
    i am traveling to cincinnati, But i only got 1:35h from terminal B to C. So i need to know, whats the best way.May we use the Train to the gate? The location of the immigration is only in terminal C? Whats the usual time to go through there for a foreigner?


    There is US Immigration and customs in Terminal B. What airline are you flying into EWR and what airline are you flying to Cincinnati? Where are you coming from?


  • From Miami to Ottawa via Newark connection times
    Feb 23, 2017
    I am flying in from Miami going to Ottawa with connection in EWR, I have a 49 minute layover...will this be enough?! What happens to my checked baggage...?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal A, United runs a shuttle inside security. You don't have to do anything with your bags.


    Thank you!


  • Intl. Connection to DTW in 1 Hr. 48 Min?
    Feb 22, 2017
    Arriving at EWR via TAP at 3:50 p.m. We need to be at United flight to DTW at 5:38 p.m. via Delta (Operated By REPUBLIC AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS). Will we have enough time if US Citizens, and not checking any baggage... 1 hr. 48 min?


    With no checked bags that should be enough time if the TAP flight is on-time.


    There is a United flight from EWR to DTW later, so I guess worst case scenario we can hope to get on that one if we do miss the flight we have planned. We do have Global Entry, which I'm hoping saves us a lot of time. Sitting as close to the front of TAP flight as possible...


    Yes, Global Entry and the TSA PreCheck that comes with it will really help.


  • Arriving from Ottawa going to Houston
    Feb 21, 2017
    We are arriving iat EWR at 7:05pm and departing for Houston at 8:29pm. Will we have enough time considering we have to go through customs? Thank you.


    I should mention that we are on United for both flights going to IAH. Thank you.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do in Newark is take the shuttle bus from Terminal A where you arrive to Terminal C where you depart inside security.


    So we do not have to go through security between terminals? Thank you.


    Not if you take the bus.


    Great, thank you!


  • 50 min for terminal change in EWR
    Feb 21, 2017
    Our return itinerary from SNN has jus been changed, giving us only 50 min between incoming United and outgoing AC flights with wheelchair assist. Is this possible? They have not even contacted us; I just found the itin change on the booking.


    We will have pre-cleared US customs overseas but need to change terminals, I believe?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Does the EWR terminal change take us out of the secure area? Do we claim bags? To be sure I have been as clear as I should, we will be travelling SNN - EWR - YYZ. Thank you so much.


  • 2 hours conection, United airlines
    Feb 20, 2017

    That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Connection between San Juan and Montreal
    Feb 20, 2017
    Hello. We are travelling back to Montreal from San Juan, Puerto Rico on monday March 6th with a connection in Newark. Arriving at 5:10 Terminal B with plane leaving at 7:25, terminal A. Do we have to enough time? We will have a check bagage. Thank you.


    What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


    I am flying with Air Canada (partner with United) and second flight, air Canada Jazz. I is the same reservation.


    Then you will not arrive in Terminal B. You will arrive in Terminal C, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security. You have enough time.


  • United Club Access from B Terminal / United Award Ticket
    Feb 20, 2017
    I have a United Award ticket for travel to DUB on Aer Lingus with United confirmation code and would like to use a United Club Lounge pass prior to the trip. I believe Aer Lingus departs from terminal B but United Lounges are in A&C. I assume I check in/bags at Aer Lingus terminal. Will I be able to get the the A or C United lounges after passing through security and return to B without difficulty? Thanks!


    No, I would not advise doing that.


    For what reason? Thanks.


    Because getting from the Aer Lingus gates to the United Clubs in C inside security is difficult if not impossible.


    Just trying to understand the issues. So there is no way to get between terminals B and C and back with out going through security checkpoints for passengers at each terminal? How about between terminals B and A? Thanks.


    There is no way between B and A. There is a shuttle between one pier of B and C, but without a United boarding pass, you may not be able to use it.


  • Switching terminals
    Feb 20, 2017

    That will be very difficult if not impossible.


  • Terminal B to C connection
    Feb 20, 2017
    I have a United flight arriving at Terminal B at 14:15 from Madrid, Spain, and a connecting flight from Terminal C to SFO at 15:50. Will I have enough time for this connection? Will I need to collect luggage for the transfer? I am travelling business class - is there fast track security for business? Many thanks,.


    Yes, 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 take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. Yes, there is a Premier Access security line for First/Business class passengers in Terminal C in Newark. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • SW to UA International-question on best approach
    Feb 19, 2017
    Flying on SW to terminal A arriving 4:40 to catch a UA intl flight to Spain departing 7:20 from terminal C. Should I just take carryon to stay in secure area or do I have enough time to pickup checked bag in terminal A then check-in said bag at terminal C and go through security?


    You can't stay in the secure area. You'll have to exit security anyway to take the AirTrain to Terminal C. If you don't need to check a bag, then don't check a bag, it's one less thing to worry about, but you will have to go through security again in Terminal C anyway.


    Oh! I didn't think that would be the case. You are the best! Thank you!

  • Connection flight from ottawa to newark to fort wayne
    Feb 16, 2017
    First time flyer here. Im looking to a book a flight that I am unsure of and just wanted to know if this layover gives me enough time. The flight would be United Express from Ottawa to Newark and United Express from Newark to Fort Wayne with a 45mins layover in Newark. My question is if I do a pre clearance in Ottawa (Canada) will I bypass customs in newark? and will I need to recheck my baggage or will it go all the way to Fort Wayne since both flights are United Express? Also would it be difficult to make my connecting with 45mins?


    Yes, you will not have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Newark as that is taken care of in Ottawa. Your arrival will be like a domestic flight. You won't have to do anything with checked bags in Newark. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which should both be in the same area of Terminal A.


  • Transit via Newark to San Jose, costa Rica
    Feb 14, 2017
    I am travelling from Frankfurt, Germany to San Jose Juan Santamaria Airport in Costa Rica via Newark with United Airlines. I arrive at Newark Terminal B at 14.35 and leave at 16.30 for the connecting flight to San Jose. Both flights are with United Airlines on one reservation on a Saturday. I have a number of queries. 1) Will I have to collect my hold baggage at Terminal B and re-check for onward flight or will the baggage go straight through? 2) Will I have enough time to travel from Terminal B to Terminal C? 3) will I have to clear immigration and customs at Terminal B? 4) Will I have to go through immigration checks at Terminal C? I have found conflicting answers on this forum regarding collection of baggage - some answers say one must collect baggage and re-check, others say that the baggage goes straight through to destination.


    Yes, you will 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.


    Also, you should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
