  • canada layover
    Jul 24, 2016
    Flying to Canada from Germany. My itinerary is Munich->Newark->Toronto. My layover in Newark though is only 95 minutes. Will I be required to go through customs, get my suitcase, re-check, and then go through security or will be directly connected to a plane to Canada?


    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, go to your departure terminal, and go through security. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.

    I'm flying with my family from Houston (IAH) on UA into Newark (EWR) term C and flying onto Bermuda (BDA) on UA, also term C. We will have checked in baggage. Our agent said the 65 mins between flights was enough and baggage would be checked through - was he giving me correct advice? Although he also said it was my only option if wanting to arrive and depart from the same airport! Please advise.


    Yes, that is correct. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    My partner and I are flying to Newark from Birmingham in the UK on Monday then on to San Francisco. We land in Newark at 11.55am and the flight to San Francisco departs at 1.30pm. Is that possible?


    It's barely possible if everything goes perfectly. Note however, that if you miss your connection, United has almost hourly flights from Newark to San Francisco that you can be rebooked on.


  • 1 hour 35 term B to term C with 2 children
    Jul 22, 2016
    I have read that it may be difficult to transfer from terminal B to terminal C in 1 1/2 hours. Why does the airline allow a ticket to be purchased in this way if it is not fisable? I am traveling with 2 children and have hold luggage. How can I ensure I will make my connecting flight as I have private transfers organized once I get to cancun.


    where are you flying from? What airlines are you flying?


  • Transfer from A to C
    Jul 22, 2016
    I am looking at a connection that would require me to transfer from Terminal A to C with only 55 minutes between flights. Is this possible? Do you have to go through security in between the two terminals or can you transfer without going through security again? Thanks


    If both flights are United/United Express then you can take a shuttle bus inside security and should have just enough time.


  • Conexion time between flights
    Jul 21, 2016
    I am flying from Tampa to Newark and then on to Barcelona, Spain. Both flights are with United and the layover is 1 hr 52 min. Is that plenty of time? Will I have to change terminals? Thanks for your replies.


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. You have plenty of time.


  • Terminal B to Terminal A - 1hr 20mins layover
    Jul 21, 2016
    We'll be flying BA on a Friday from LHR, landing in EWR at 19:35. We have a separate reservation with Southwest departing EWR at 20:55 to MDW. Is this enough time to transfer? There's a later flight with United, that leaves at 21:29. Would that be a better choice?


    Both connections are pretty much impossible with checked bags. Without checked bags the United flight might be possible.


  • Changing gates at Newark
    Jul 21, 2016
    Hello all. On August 16th I'm landing in EWR on a flight from Seattle with United. I arrive at 2:21 pm. At 5:25 I am supposed to be taking off on a flight to Stockholm-Arlanda, this flight also being United. Do you know if I will have to change terminals? I'm a frequent flyer but have never flown through Newark. It seems like a complicated airport and I'm not sure I could make it with transferring and waiting in the TSA lines!


    Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on your way to Stockholm. You have plenty of time. You do not have to go through security.


    Thank you dearie! That helps!


  • Is 2hr and 40 minutes enough?
    Jul 20, 2016
    We will arrive with Swiss Airways (don't know the terminals) at 13.50 and we will fly out at 16.30 with United to San Jose, Costa Rica. Will the 2hrs and 40 min be enough to pick up our bags, go through customs, check in the bags and go through security (and possibly change terminals?)


    You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C. That should be enough time.


  • Connecting B to C
    Jul 18, 2016
    Arriving in Newark in Terminal B from Cancun and connecting for my LHR flight in C. Is 1.5 hours enough? Both flights are with United. On that note, do I need to clear US customs and border to connect to my International flight. Help please :)


    Yes, you have to 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 and go through security. This is a very difficult connection.


  • International Connection
    Jul 18, 2016
    I'm arriving in Terminal B on LH412 (Munich to EWR) and then connecting to Dallas (EWR to DFW) on UA3327, out of Terminal C. This connection time is an hour and 50 minutes. Is this enough time? Also, I was told I do not have to re-check my bags (all under 1 reservation, but changing airlines from LH to UA), is this true?


    That is not true. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thanks. I did get this information from United directly. They stated that Lufthansa and United have 'agreements' in which I would not touch my bags through the journey. If this is true, then this should help my connection time (if everything goes perfect).


    Your bags will be tagged to DFW (that is what they are talking about). But you have to claim your bags to go through US customs in Newark. This is a federal law, there's no getting around it.


  • Too tight?
    Jul 18, 2016
    Travelling from LHR to EWR arriving at 15:05 , transferring to BOG, Colombia at 16:34. Is it too close? I've never been through the states before so was unaware about the re-security check


    Both flights are United Airlines


    you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to Terminal C if you arrived at a different terminal, then go through security and to your departure gate. This is a very difficult connection.


  • Overnight Layover between terminals
    Jul 18, 2016
    Landing EWR on a Virgin Atlantic Flight from LHR at 7:50pm with a United departure to DFW at 6am the next morning and hoping to avoid a hotel stay. Will have no checked bags and pre-printed boarding passes. Anyone have thoughts or experience on getting from Teminal B to Terminal C for an overnight? Want to make sure security/TSA will be open and that I won't be refused for having a longer layover-Assuming anything less than 12 hours is good, but want o double check. Thanks in advance


    You will not be able to go through security in Terminal C until early morning (about 3-4 AM). So considering you will be out of immigration and customs a little before 9 PM, you'll have 6 or 7 hours to kill before you can go through security.


    Thanks for the response-Out of curiosity, wll I have to wait until 3-4am because security will be closed or because of a regulation regarding time prior to my flight? Thanks


    Security will still be open when you arrive, but you will be considered a "next day" traveler and not allowed to go through. Security will close at about midnight. You will be allowed through when it reopens.


    Good to know-Thanks!


  • terminal A to C
    Jul 17, 2016
    flying united day to ewr arrive at 12:59 pm terminal A and depart terminal C at 1:40 pm. is this possible ?


    DAY (dayton) to EWR both flights are united express


    It doesn't leave much time to spare. There is a shuttle that runs inside security between United's gates in A and C. There's a chance your flight to PIT could also leave from A.


    thank you !!!


  • Connection from international arrival in terminal to B to A/C
    Jul 15, 2016
    Flying in from FRA on LH so I'd arrive in terminal B at 4:20pm, and continuing on a UA Express flight to PIT (either it being terminal A or C). I can either do a 2 hr 37 min or 3 hr 29 min connection. Should I be fine with the shorter one? And after exiting customs, will it be better to take my checked luggage to the terminal I'm flying out of or leave it at the bag drop in terminal B?


    You can just drop your bag at the re-check desk right after customs as long as they are tagged to PIT. Either connection should be sufficient.
