    Arrival Newark terminal B on UA961 from Brussels on 03/03 12:30 Departure for houston from terminal C on UA1232 on 03/03 14:00 Please tell me I have enough time :-) Thanks ( does houston have a similar service to this great forum ? )


    Yes you have enough time. While Terminal C (TC) of EWR Airport is exclusively used by United & United Express airlines - however, domestic flights of United Express also use Gate Area A2 in Terminal A). International Arrivals go through passport control and customs clearance, re-check in their bags & may proceed to their connecting gate. If your connection is in TA, take the shuttle bus at gateway C1, near gate C71, where you arrive at TA at gate A28. For both EWR & Houston airports (IAH or HOU?) I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah (or hou) then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • tight connection
    Feb 26, 2014
    We fly YHZ-EWR-BZE on united Airlines March 2. Will will be doing US pre clearance in Halifax prior to departure. Out connection is 55mins. Is this doable? Will we be arriving and departing from the same terminal?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You may arrive in Terminal A, which may require you taking United's shuttle bus to Terminal C, which runs inside security. Your flight to BZE will depart from Terminal C.


    While United uses Terminal C exclusively for United & United Express flights, it also uses Terminal A for some United Express flights (at gate area A2). If arriving at TA - take the shuttle bus near gate A28 to Terminal C's gateway 1, near gate C71. For detailed terminal information, open www.ifly.com/ewr, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Quebec City/EWR Connection to Aruba
    Feb 24, 2014
    I have 4 passengers arriving from Quebec City into EWR on a UA fight at 7:50 AM. Their UA flight to Aruba leaves at 9:04 AM. Will this be enough time for them to clear immigration at EWR as Quebec City Airport doesn't do US pre-clearance. Please advise.


    That will be very difficult. Minimum intl -> intl connect time at EWR is 90 mins.


  • Terminal B connecting flights
    Feb 24, 2014
    Hi my parents would arrive at Terminal B at 7.55 am. And they have a connecting flight at 11.00 am from Terminal B to Cincinnati. They have 3 hrs time at Newark. Is this enough to catch their flight. Also do we have a quick connect pass in Newark like JFK.


    3 hrs transfer time is plenty. Note, however, that Terminal B serves only international arrivals & departures. Terminal A is the domestic terminal; Terminal C is only for United - which uses also TA for some of its United Express flights. After customs clearance and baggage recheck-in the Airtrain will take them to the connecting terminal, where they will have to go through security check before proceeding to their gate.


  • From Terminal B to C going through customs
    Feb 21, 2014
    I will arrive from Munich at 7pm arriving to terminal B, and I have another flight at 9pm in terminal C. Will I make it!??!?!?! Please give me some help to make sure I will do it.


    On arrival at EWR, at Terminal B, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag where indicated. Then take the frequent Airtrain on the gate level of TB to TC, go through security check & on to your connecting gate. There are 3 gate areas: C1 (gates C70-99); C2 (gates C101-C115); & C3 (gates C120-139). Count on at least one hour gate-to-gate transfer.


    It will be impossible then? The air train takes me to where in Terminal C? What do you suggest? Thank you, Emilia


    No, 2 hours is doable for this transfer. The AirTrain station in Terminal C is outside the check-in area.


  • Connection and immigration
    Feb 9, 2014
    we are flying from BFS-EWR-MCO. We have a 4 hour connection in EWR both flights with United. Do we have to collect our luggage and check it in again? Do we go through immigration in EWR or MCO? Will we have to change terminals? I have never flown into EWR. Thanks


    On the way to Orlando, in Newark, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs then re-check your bags. Your flight to Orlando will depart from C. If you arrive in B you should take the AirTrain to C then go through security and to your gate. If you arrive in C then you can just go up to the departure level, through security and to your gate. On your return trip, you will not have to do any immigration until you get back to Belfast and both flights should be in Terminal C in EWR. 4 Hours should be plenty of time for both connections.


    Thank you for a great response, eases my worries as we have 3 young kids with us.


  • Time to connect from Terminal C to Terminal A
    Jan 27, 2014
    We have a connection which was 45 minutes, now with a Delay to departure of 20 minutes we are down to 25 minutes. What is the estimated time to get from Terminal A Concourse a2 Gate 08 to Terminal C Concourse C1 gate C84. Thanks !


    15-20 minutes via the United shuttle bus, but there's a chance your departing flight will be delayed too. So you may be OK.


  • United Connecting Flight
    Jan 26, 2014
    I am flying United from Europe into EWR (Newark) on 2/26 with a United connection flight to Texas on 2/27 from LGA (LaGuardia). Will I have to transfer my baggage to LGA or will United do it for me?


    So you're flying into EWR and out of LGA? You will have to transfer your baggage yourself and need at least 4 hours for your connection.


    thanks for responding! It's an overnight connection so timing isn't an issue. when i spoke to United straight they seemed to say they would transfer the baggage which on a 4 hr connection would be fine, but on an overnight connection I need my baggage. so i would def transfer myself?


    They probably misunderstood you - airlines NEVER transfer baggage between airports.


    Great! Thanks for the clarification!!! Awesome site!


  • Will I have enough time to make this connection?
    Jan 21, 2014
    Hi, I plan on traveling on a standby ticket tonight from SEA to EWR to Cancun (CUN). I would arrive in EWR at 6:02am and then my flight from EWR to CUN would depart at 7:47am. I'm going from a domestic to an international flight (which looks like Terminal A to C), so will that hour and a half be enough time for me to make the connection? Thanks!


    Assuming both flights are on United they will both be in Terminal C. United only uses Terminal A for United Express flights. You should have plenty of time.


    Jan 20, 2014
    Hello, im going from montreal to bogota but i have to do a connection in EWR from terminal A to terminal C. Somebody knows whats is the procedure ?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Montreal. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. United runs a shuttle bus inside the secure area between A and C.


  • terminal change A to C in newark
    Jan 18, 2014
    leaving Moncton NB Feb 21 arriving in Newark terminal A leaving from terminal C going Florida Orlando will we do custom in NB or Newark some say NB some say Newark I"m confused Moncton is our last Canada city and will we have to collect our luggage in Newark and recheck them


    Since there is not Pre-clearance in Moncton, you will not arrive in Terminal A on your way to florida. You will arrive in Terminal C and go through US Immigration there. YOu will then claim your baggage, go through customs and re-check it. Then go up to the departures level and go through security and to your departure gate which will also be in C. On your return from Florida you will only have to go from your arrival gate in C to your departure gate, which will likely be in A. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between C and A. You will not have to do any immigration or customs in Newark on your return trip.


    thank you but our e ticket say arriving Terminal A leave from C I saw other post from someone that said same thing A to C I quess we have to see where we land have lots of time get in at 730 am leave at 10 am thanks so much for fast reponse


    The info on your e-ticket is wrong. You have to clear immigration and there is no US Immigration located in Terminal A.


  • Moncton to Cancun with connection in EWR
    Jan 18, 2014
    Hi, I am going to Cancun from Moncton, NB with a connection in EWR. It will be my second time ever on a plane, but the first time going directly from Moncton to Newark. I am flying on United Airline. Getting in Newark at 7:30AM at terminal A and leave at 9:09AM at terminal C. I am a bit stressed out as Moncton do not have per clearance. What will be the process once I arrive to the Newark airport? The travel agent said I will not go thru customs in Newark.... Im so confuse.


    Your travel agent is wrong. Since you will have to clear immigration in Newark, your flight will arrive in Terminal C, not Terminal A. You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, and re-check your baggage with United. You will then go up to the departures level and go through security and to your departure gate which will also be in Terminal C. You should have enough time to do this. When you get to Cancun, you will then go through Mexican immigration and customs.


    Thanks for the response! I am feeling a bit better now. Especially since you said we would have enough time going through all that. Just sucks that the travel agent is saying the wrong thing and that the terminals on my e-ticket don't show the right thing... but that part isn't a problem since I will still be leaving from C. So, it means I won't have to take a shuttle? I went to Texas last October as my first trip ever in a plane for work and we stopped in Newark, so it is my only experience in an US airport. And for this trip, I won it through work as a manager, so I can't talk directly to the travel agent but through the incentive trip representative. A big thank you. This website is awsome!

    I am arriving in ewr on 02/02/14 from BHX on flight UA 26 and connecting with flight UA 1600 to LAX do I need to reclaim baggage then re check in


    Yes, you will claim your bags after you go through immigration, then go through customs, then re-check them at the re-check desk. You will then go up to the departure level and go back through security and to your departure gate.


    Thank you


    International arrivals at EWR need to go through passport check, pick up their bags, go through customs clearance & if continuing journey re-check-in their bag where indicated. Note that United uses Terminal C for all international flights, as well as some domestic flights, and uses some other domestic flights at Terminal A. If your connecting flight is at Terminal A, you get a shuttle running outside the C gates to the A gates (no need for security check). For details I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ewr then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal C.


  • Dusseldorf Tampa Malpensa
    Jan 11, 2014
    Hi, I'm flying A) On JEN/22/2014 From Dusseldorf (Germany) LH408 EWR 3:05pm Terminal B To Tampa LH 7772 Operated United Airlines 5:35pm Terminal C What to do? Clear immigration, custom, security in TB and then to go in TC by Airtrain (or United Shuttle bus?)? I don't have checked baggage just a carry-on luggage. B) On JEN/26/2014 From Tampa UA 1027 EWR 4:49pm Terminal C To Malpensa (Italy) UA19 EWR 6:35 Terminal C What to do? Thanks in advance for your advice. CP


    On your trip to Tampa you will clear US Immigration and customs, then it would be fastest to take the AirTrain to Terminal C where you will go through security and to your gate. On your way to Milan you will only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal C, which are all connected beyond security.


    Very helpfull thank You very much ZAP! CP
