  • Terminal A to B: Time Requirement
    Aug 7, 2013
    Will be arriving on a United DAY-EWR flight in Terminal A, and connecting to a SAS EWR-CPH in Terminal B3. United seems to have a bus/shuttle from A to B, then on to C. Using the United bus/shuttle from A to B, how long does this take? Also, if the bus was not operating, how long would it take to get from Terminal A to B using the AirTrain and going through security at B3? Will be arriving EWR Terminal A at 9:15 PM, and the SAS flight to CPH departs at 11 PM. I have a 1 hr. 45 min. connection time, but the DAY-EWR flight with United is consistrenly late and/or cancelled. Wanting to know how long it takes to get from A to B, either by the United bus/shuttle and using the AirTran and going through security at B3. Thanks.


    The shuttle should still be running then. If you take the airtrain, there security lines should be very short that late. Either way I'd say the connection will take about 30 minutes. If it looks like your DAY-EWR flight is going to be delayed, enquire with United either at their counter or over the phone about being rebooked to connect in ORD.


  • Flying into EWR from IAD and then going to DEL
    Jul 28, 2013
    Do I need to do immigration again or will I be checked in at IAD? What about baggage? Will that be cheked in all the way? IAD to EWR is ETA 6:20 PM in TC and EWR to DEL is 8:20 PM in TC United. Will that be enough time?


    Both flights are domestic flights - therefore no immigration procedure necessary. Your arrival is at Terminal B (Delta) and your departure is in Terminal C (United). If both flights are booked on one ticket, bags will be transferred - if not, you need to claim them and re-check-them in with United. Either way, you need to take the Airtrain to Terminal C, and go through security check before proceedi to your departing gate.


    Disregard what Sujul said about "Delta" and bags not being transfered. It appears both of your flighs are on United as Delta does not fly from IAD to EWR. 2 Hours is plenty of time. United runs a secure side shuttle if you need to change terminals.


  • Connection time from terminal C to terminal A
    Sep 6, 2013
    We're flying with United from Hamilton (Bermuda) to Montreal (Canada), with a 1h15 layover in Newark. We land in Terminal C and will be departing from Terminal A. Will we have to go through customs and get our luggage? Is this enough time? Thank you!


    I forgot to mention that we will be arriving at Terminal C a saturday at 5h11 pm and we will be departing from Terminal A at 6h29 pm. Thanks!


    Yes you need, on arrival at Newark Airport, go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in bags where indicated. Thereafter you will need to take the AirTrain to Terminal A (2 stops) where you arrive in the pre-security area and need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. TA has Gate Area A1 (gates A10-18); Gate Area A2 (gates A20-28); and Gate Area A3 (gates A30-39). This is high season & your time may be extremely tight.


    mojul, again, is incorrect. Flights from Bermuda preclear immigration and customs in Bermuda. You just have to go between your gates as your arrival from Bermuda will just be like a domestic flight. United runs a secure-side shuttle between terminals if you have to transfer between them.


    After going through customs and re-check-in luggage, is it still in the post-security area? Is the shuttle bus still available?


  • US Airways-ticketing
    Jul 28, 2013
    Is there a kiosk for tickets for a US Airways flight and if so, where is it located?


    Yes, US Airways has ticketing kiosks, the are located by their ticket counter in Terminal A.


  • Terminal C
    Jul 15, 2013
    My daughter is coming in on a flight in C136 and connecting at C101... she has just over 2 hours, but will she need to pass through security again (domestic flight both ways).... also will she have enough time? She is 14 and has traveled a lot by herself but never connected in Newark.... She travels as an adult. Thank you!


    For flights within the same terminal, no you do not have to pass through security again. She should have enough time - the connection shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.


  • how to get from Terminal B to terminal A
    Sep 17, 2013
    I am arriving on Terminal B on July 15, 2013 arond 6:30 pm from Munich and tarving from Terminal A around 9 p.m. Would it be enough time and what is the easiets way to get. Do I need to go to Immigration and customs.. If yes where I pcik up the suitecase


    Yes, any time you enter the US from abroad you have to go through immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, and re-check your baggage. You can take the Airtrain from Terminal B to Terminal A.


    I have the same , Can I re check in in the same terminal where I arrived so in B and after that to terminal A


  • Olso to Newark to St. John's Canada
    Jul 12, 2013
    Hi I am arriving with united in newark and connecting with united to go to St. John's. will I have to go through customs and get my luggage? Also, what thermal will I arrive and then depart from?


    Yes, you will have to go through US immigration and claim your luggage. You will likely arrive and depart in Terminal C, but if you arrive in B, you can take the AirTrain between terminals, since you will already be outside security.


    Thanks for replying. If I land in B do I take my luggage to C or is there a drop off point in B? Where would I drop it off in C?


    You can drop it right after you exit customs in B.


  • Transfer between Terminal A and B
    Jul 1, 2013
    Hi! I have arriving on a UA flight from Buffalo landing in Terminal A and connecting to a code share SAS flight to Oslo in Terminal B. We have a connection time (pending no "circling" delays of 1 hour and 25 minutes. What is the easiest and quickest way of getting to terminal B from A? Is it to leave the "secure zone" and take the air train or is there a shuttle bus that is faster? For information, this is all one ticket so our luggage will be checked through to Oslo from Buffalo.


    United runs a shuttle on the secure side between A and B - that is probably the fastest route. http://www.united.com/web/en-us/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx?SID=798D7DF2A4654EC9A1A48DA22763CC7C


  • Connection between Terminals A and B
    Jul 1, 2013
    Hi! I will be traveling from Buffulo to Newark on UA coming into Terminal A and then onwards to Oslo on a code share SAS flight that leaves from Terminal B. What is the easiest way to get to our gate? Is it to leave the "secure" zone and take the air train or is there a shuttle bus that is easier?


    On arrival at EWR, take the AirTrain serving pre-security areas on Gate Level of all terminals - however, you need to go through security check b efore proceeding to your gate. The Gate Level leads to three gate areas: 1. Gate Area B1 (gates B40-47); 2. Gate Area B2 (gates B51-57 used by British Airways); and 3. Gate Area B3 (gates B60 to B68).


  • Arrive terminal of UA
    Jun 26, 2013
    Which terminal is the UA116 arrived at (from Hong Kong to Newark) in EWR?


    It usually arrives in B.


  • where do I go? Is it enough time?
    Jun 23, 2013
    I arrive at Newark from Spain at 2:15PM in terminal B and I have a connecting flight in Terminal C at 4PM, both with United. I will have to go through customs and all that and switch terminals and go through security again, is that enough time? I also do not know where the airtrain is located, can anyone tell me what it is near or how to get there from the gates in Terminal B? Finally, if I do miss my flight, what will happen? I'm very worried I'm going to miss my flight!


    It should be enough time. The Airtrain is fairly obvious and operates on the non-secure side. I you miss your connection you will be rebooked on a later flight to your destination, if there is one. If so you will be rebooked the next day.


  • Where is the Airtrain
    Jun 23, 2013
    Hello, I will be arriving at Terminal B and need to get to Terminal C without much time. Can you tell me what gate number the airtrain is near to or anything like that? From the gate that I arrive at, will I need to go up or down any escalators or anything to get on the airtrain? Thank you!


    The Airtrain does not operate on the secure side, so it is not near "gates". However, United does operate a secure side shuttle from the base of the B3 satellite to near C71. http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx


    do you think it would be faster to take the shuttle than the airtrain?


    If your arrival in Terminal B is domestic, the shuttle. If your arrival is international and you'll have to go through security again anyway, take the AirTrain.


  • TEL AVIV TO SAN ANTONIO (via Newark and Houston)
    Jun 23, 2013
    I am flying into Newark from Tel Aviv and as of now only have a 43 minute layover with United. Both flights are in terminal C, but I know I will have to go through immigration, customs, and security. I originally had a longer layover but the flight was cancelled and United booked this one in its place. I called to inquire about the short layover and the United representative said that it was considered a valid layover since it is in the same terminal. Is this reasonable? Will I be able to make my flight to Houston? If I miss my flight the next one will put me in Houston past the departure time for my flight to San Antonio, the last flight of the day to my final destination. I asked if there were other connections from Newark to San Antonio and the representative answered that Houston was the only option. Suggestions?


    No, it's not enough time. Since there was an involuntary schedule change you can be rebooked without a change fee. Call back and ask for that. However, she is right in that there are no other options with that get you into SAT that day. Your only option would be to request a change to the overnight TLV-EWR flight the previous night, which gets into EWR at about 5 AM, then take the EWR-SAT Nonstop which leaves at about 4 PM. I would suggest either doing this, going with the original itinerary they rebooked you on and hope the flight is early and you make the connection, with the knowledge you'll end up stuck in Newark or Houston. Or just ask to be rebooked on the later Newark-Houston flight and book a hotel room in Houston and fly to San Antonio the next morning. You'll be tired anyway. They're telling you it's a valid connection because after the schedule change, they don't really have anything better to offer.


    I looked at United flights from TLV to SAT and saw that there is a connection from Newark to San Antonio via Cleveland.The layover would be an hour and 18 mins. in Newark. Is that doable?


    It's not much better, but it's better. You could ask for that.


  • Help with flight connection times please!
    Jun 12, 2013
    I am arriving to Newark terminal B from Heathrow and have a 1 hour 40 minute lay over time to go through immigration and to terminal C for connecting flight to San Jose. Is this possible? any tips or help very welcome, first time through US in transit and very worried about connection time.


    That will be pretty tough. Is your LHR flight on United, BA, or Virgin? If not United, were your tickets bought on one reservation or two? If so BA or Virgin Atlantic (whoever you are flying from Heathrow) will probably be able to check your bags through to United, however you will still have to claim them in immigration and re-check them once you get through (same process if your first flight is on United). Take the Airtrain from TB to TC.


    oh ! im flying with United from LHR, I contacted the airline today as I was worried and they claim its "plenty of time mam" stating its a 1 hr 25 minute connection! I didn't realise our bags would not be transferred onto our onward flight either! I assumed as with all other flights I have ever taken (not via US!) that they would be sent on to our destination. so can anyone tell me a plane door to plane door run through of what to expect, the tickets were bought as one ticket from United, they operate both the LHR - Newark and Newark onwards to SJO. Thanks in advance!


    You will get off the plane and be funneled to Immigration. You will then go through immigration, then claim your bags, then walk through customs, then re-check the bags with United at the re-check counter. If you arrive in Terminal B you will then go up to the Airtrain, then take the Airtrain to Terminal C then go through security. If you arrive in Terminal C you will go upstairs and go through security and then go to your gate. Immigration can take around an hour these days and security can take 20-30 minutes, so you will definitely have to hurry.


    On arrival at EWR you go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag where indicated. Then board the Airtrain (running on average every 7 mins), which will take you to Terminal C, where you arrive in the pre-security area of the gate level and need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting flight at Terminal C whose Gate level leads to three gate areas: 1. Gate Area C1, arranged in a Y-shape, with gates C70-99; 2. Gate Area C2 (gates C101-C115); and 3. Gate Area C3 (gates C120-139). You should be able to make your flight on time. Terminal C is the exclusive United & United Express airline terminal.


  • Transfer Shuttle Bus Between TB & TC
    Jun 11, 2013
    I need to transfer between TB & TC and wish to use the transfer shuttle bus to avoid going through security again. Where is the shuttle bus located in TB? When does it operate?


    The shuttle stop in Terminal B is near the B3 satellite - http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx
