  • Flight Connection time
    Oct 16, 2016
    I will travel from Frankfurt to Mexico City with flight connection in EWR. The airline is Lufthansa for both flights. Are 3 hours enough in EWR? I assume I will stay only in the transit area and don't have to claim the bags or clear customs. Is this correct?


    The second flight will be operated by United (the first may be as well). The US doesn't have sterile transit areas, so you are completely incorrect. In Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly change terminals to Terminal C, and go through security.


    Thank you for your message! In this case, are 3 hours enough?


    Yes, 3 hours should be just about enough time.

    Hello there, please can someone help or advise me... I'm travelling from LHR to Newark then onto Orlando MCO. Im checking in luggage etc at LHR, do i need to claim bags and clear customs and then re-check in etc. i land at 13.00pm Terminal B and fly from Terminal C at 15.00pm to MCO. Also is that enough time from landing and taking up again??


    Yes, in Newark you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. If both tickets are on the same reservation you barely have enough time.


  • 2hr10min connection: NRT-EWR-MIA
    Oct 15, 2016
    We are flying United on 15DEC (Thurs) from Tokyo to Miami via Newark. Is 2hr10min enough to clear immigration and custom? Our flight from Tokyo is scheduled to arrive at 1645 and the flight to Miami leaves at 1855. Thanks... We were supposed to be on the 9pm flight to Miami, but United has a schedule change ......


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 2 hour layover, PHX>EWR>LISBOA, different airlines
    Oct 15, 2016
    Hello, I will have a 2h 05m layover in EWR. I will arrive from Phoenix with American Airlines to Terminal A. I then need to pick up my luggage, go to Terminal B, and check in/drop bags for my flight with TAP Portugal to Lisboa. Obviously then go again through security into the gate. Will I have enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I personally wouldn't try it.


    Thank you for the answer. I might then change the flight to Newark to an earlier one. How long do you think is the minimum safe layover time there for it to work? Would 3 hours be alright for that?


    Yes, 3 hours would be enough time.


  • 1h45m enough time to change planes?
    Oct 12, 2016
    I'm flying United from the UK to Newark, then Air Canada to Toronto. Is 1h45m enough time if I only have carry-on luggage?


    With carry-ons only that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • From UK to SFO via Newark
    Oct 12, 2016
    I am flying from BHX UK to SFO (San Francisco) via Newark with United, on Sunday. Originally I had less than 1.30 hrs to transfer from Terminal B to C, but I have requested a later flight so as I will have 2.25hrs to check through imigration and transfer to Term C. Will I have to collect bag, even though both flights are United and booked on same ticket and will I have sufficient time? Any tips would be appreciated.


    Yes, you will have to claim your bag to take it through US Customs, then immediately re-check it at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 1hr 15 min connection LAX->EWR and EWR->DEL
    Oct 9, 2016
    Flying United both segments from LAX->EWR and taking a connection EWR-DEL (india). Have only 1hr 15 min in EWR. Will have a checked bag as well. Will 1.15 hrs be enough to clear immigration etc to board Delhi connection in EWR. I think arrival and departure at EWR is at the same terminal C


    Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Layover time upon arrival from Panama
    Oct 7, 2016
    On Tues afternoon, Nov. 22nd: Arriving from Panama (United 1022) Layover in Newark EWR2h 37m Departing for Pittsburgh (United 3539) Is this enough time to get through immigration, customs, etc?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • 50 minutes to get from one end of terminal C to the other
    Oct 7, 2016
    Is this enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • Columbus OH to Shannon, Ireland
    Oct 6, 2016
    I will be leaving on a roundtrip flight on United from Columbus, Ohio to Shannon, Ireland with a layover at EWR. There is a 1 hour and 30 minute layover before leaving EWR to Shannon. On the return, there is a 2 hour and 30 minute layover before leaving EWR for Columbus, Ohio. Will these numbers work? I am traveling by myself and, if I do it right, will have no checked baggage.


    That should be enough time. Both ways all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to go between terminals A and C, then United operates a shuttle bus inside security.


    Sweet. Thanks for the info/advice


  • Connecting Flight
    Oct 6, 2016
    I a man coming into Newark terminal from Ottawa and have 52 minutes to make connecting flight to West Palm Beach...will I have time to make connecting flight


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa. If you have to change terminals from A to C, United runs a shuttle bus between the two terminals inside security.


  • Just 1hr between two UA flights
    Oct 6, 2016
    I am going to book flights from UK to SYR via EWR with United Airline but there's only 1hr for connection, is it OK? will they be at the same terminal?


    No, that's not enough time. In Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, possibly change terminals, and go through security.


  • Changeover
    Oct 6, 2016
    Hi. I'm an inexperienced flyer flying from Ronald Reagan to Newark (Terminal A) with United Express to catch a flight to Manchester, England at Terminal C with United Airlines. I have plenty of layover time (4 hours). Do I need to reclaim my luggage at Newark and begin all the checks again or just make my way to Terminal C via a shuttle bus and my luggage will take care of itself? Any help/advice greatly appreciated.


    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags on your way to Manchester. Just take the shuttle bus to C and go to your departure gate.


    Thanks very much, greatly appreciated.


  • Connection between terminal B and C
    Oct 7, 2016
    Can you please tell me if 2.5 hours is sufficient to transfer from Terminal B to terminal C, also do I have to go through security again on the way to terminal C?


    What airline are you arriving on in Terminal B? Where are you flying into Newark from? I can't answer that question without that information.


    I am flying from Dublin Ireland with Aer Lingus into Terminal B and then to Dallas with United from terminal C
