    I am indian citizen, Do i need to go thru US immigration, re-checkin baggage & how much time is needed. Kindly help.

     

    Yes, in Newark 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 your departure terminal, and then go through security. I recommend at least 2 hours since you will have to go through the line for visa holders.

     

    Thankyou so much for quick reply. My arrival & departure terminal is same Terminal C, even though do i need to take train for internal transfer after immigration & baggage claim.

     

    There's a good chance your Milan flight will arrive in Terminal B or your Cleveland flight will depart from Terminal A. But yes, if both flights are actually in Terminal C then you don't have to take a train.

    Hi! I'm a UK citizen and I've got a return flight from San Fran, connection at Newark, then onwards to Edinburgh. Both flights arrive and depart from Terminal C and I have a 1hour 20min stop over. Will this be enough time to make the Edinburgh flight? Will I have to go through any security again and will I need to collect and check-in my bag at Newark? Thanks!

     

    There is no US Customs or additional security when leaving the US. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Great! Thanks for the info ZAP, much appreciated

    my friend arrives at 7:30pm to terminal B on Lufthansa from Munich and has a 9:03pm United to Orlando from Terminal C. Is there any special handling of checked-in baggage and customs/passport control clearance or do you have to go through regular passport control, get your luggage, go through customs, get on the airtrain to terminal C, re-check your check-in luggage, go through security and hope to make the flight?

     

    I note from other posts that there is a re-check desk at terminal B. That is helpful. From there, can you take the bus shuttle from terminal B to C and avoid security clearance?

    I'm looking at a trip to Dublin in late summer. One flight option is arriving Aer Lingus in Terminal B then connecting to a United flight in Terminal C. I know that Dublin has a pre-clearance facility but I think Aer Lingus will still arrive at B. I know United runs an airside shuttle between terminals but will it take me from B to C? I've seen posts that it goes from C to B and A to B but not sure about B to C. I will have time to take the AirTrain if necessary but would prefer to avoid a second round of security if possible.

     

    I don't think the United airside shuttle goes to the same satellite of B that Aer Lingus uses, so I suspect you will have to use the AirTrain, but if you notice you arrive at the same satellite as Lufthansa and SAS, then definitely look for the shuttle.

    I will arrive Terminal B at 1150 from Stockholm with Air Canada operated by United, one reservation. AC Express depart for YYZ at 1435 from Terminal A and as i understand i have to clear immigration and customs at EWR when arriving from Stockholm. Is there a baggage drop after customs at Terminal B or do i have to check my bags at Terminal A?

     

    Yes, since your bags should be checked through to YYZ you can drop your bags at the re-check in Terminal B, then take the airtrain to Terminal A and go through security.

     

    Perfect, thank you!

    Arriving from Toronto on United, terminal b. Connecting thru terminal c on Lufthansa. Do I need to clear security again?

     

    To the best of my knowledge YYZ is your customs passage into the US so technically you are already in the US before you physically arrive. So - no you don't.

    United flights from Toronto arrive in Terminal A. Lufthansa flights depart from Terminal B. There is a shuttle inside security.

    I will arrive United from London and have to transfer to United flight to Indianapolis. I do not walk far and may need a chair/buggy. How long should I leave for transfer (including immigration (UK Passport)

     

    Considering your mobility difficult I'd aim for around 3 hours.

     

    Thank you, that is helpful. They tell me only connection is 2hrs so will have to hope flight is on time and try and rush. I only have hand luggage. Who I ask about wheelchair help?

    We are travelling with United next week from London to Panama City. We arrive at EWR Terminal B at 1200 and leave from Terminal C at 1445, will that be enough time? Do we have to collect our bags at Terminal B?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Assuming all flights are on the same reservation, you will arrive in Terminal B, 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, go through security, and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you - that's very helpful.

    Hi, Im am flying from Toronto through EWR on way to Dominican. I have 1h15mins. Both flights are in and out of terminal C Will I have enough time? Do I have to clear US immigration/customs and recheckin? Or Will I be checked through from YYZ. Thanks!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, note that your flight from Toronto will likely arrive in Terminal A, not C. United operates a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal A to C. You should have enough time.

     

    Wonderful, thanks for the note. The expedia itenary says I arrive in C and then depart from C, but you never know ;o)

    Hello, I am connecting through EWR, wondering if transit time is long enough. I'm landing in terminal B at 2.55pm with SAS from Stockholm, and departing 5.29pm from terminal A with United to New Orleans. It's a Saturday, so it should be enough, or?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I would like to fly into Newark from RDU on United, then transfer to BA for my flight to Paris. Is this easy? How do I get my luggage and then travel to the British Airways terminal? I will arrive at 1 PM on United and the BA flight is at 8 PM. Thank you.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A or C. You will claim your bags, take the AirTrain to Terminal B and re-check your bags with British Airways when their counter opens (which will probably be about 3). and then go through security.

     

    Thank you very much.

     

  • should we sky check our luggage

    I, we are flying from Halifax to Newark connecting to LA. We only have 51 min connection with a baby. If we are sky checking our stroller how long we will wait for it at the gate and is it faster with the bus or the sky train from terminal A to C with United.

     

    Take the bus. if you take the train then you have to go through security again in Terminal C, which you don't have time to do.

    Hi I flying from Ottawa today to Ediburgh via EWR. My flight arrives at 19:00 at terminal A and my connection leaves at 19:50 from Terminal C. United assured me when I purchased the ticket that this was a valid connection and I would not miss my connecting flight. Do you have any advice on changing terminal quickly?

     

    United operates a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal A to Terminal C. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. If your flight from Ottawa arrives on-time you can make it.

     

  • Hong Kong - EWR - Pittsburgh only 1 hr 45 mins for transit

    I'm looking for the flight from Hong Kong to Pittsburgh which need to transit in EWR Newark Airport. Is 1 hr 45 mins enough time? The flight from Hong Kong to EWR is operated by United Airline, and the flight from EWR to Pittsburgh operated by Republic Airlines dba United Express, that means I need to go from which terminal to which one? If I missed the flight for late arrival of the international flight, will the airline arrange me to take the next flight to Pittsburgh accordingly? Your help please. Thanks.

     

    You will arrive in terminal B or C and depart from Terminal A or C. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Pittsburgh.
