Hi, Connecting from AA to Porter (Terminal A to B) do I have to exit security and go back through security? I will just have carry-on bags. Thank you
Yes, you will have to exit security. You have to take the AirTrain to Terminal B which runs outside security.
Does the pre-clearance Aer Lingus arrival from DUB arrival into Term B? If so can you connect to Term C without going on AirTran and going though security again? I'm wanting to have a short connection
The Airtrain in Newark runs outside security.
Hi, I have 1h40 minutes to connect from terminal B to Terminal C at Newark airport, and catching a flight to Panama. I'm coming from Brussels, and both are united airlines- is it enough time? Do i need to check my bags twice? please let me know thank you!
You will have to 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 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks for your reply! when claiming bags, you mean going to pick up the bags on the belt like normally or need to go to a special transit belt/desk? Also, i'm planning to have only a 50l backpack do you think it can be allowed as cabin in a United Airlines flight? its brand is DEUTER
You will claim your bags in the International baggage claim which has a fairly normal carousel. You will re-check at a special desk for connecting passengers coming from International flights. I have no clue if your backpack is eligible to be a carry on without seeing it. United has maximum dimensions posted on their website.
Hi I need some advice. I am flying dublin-Newark with aer lingus then connecting with united for my next flight to Las Vegas. This is all booked under the same booking with aer lingus. I have a stopover time of 2 hours. My bags will go straight through and will have already cleared immigration in dublin. What else do I need to do? Need to go from terminal b to c, will 2 hours be enough time? Thanks in advance, I'm a little nervous as I am traveling alone and my first time to USA!
Yes, your bags will go right through. You just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You have enough time
Hi,

I'm flying in from Birmingham, UK to Newark, and then heading on to Washington-Dulles airport. My itinerary tells me that I need to go from Terminal B to C. Both of my flights are United flights. Will I need to reclaim my bags? Also, I am actually emigrating to the United States, so the border force will have additional things to do for me, and I suppose I have to go through that at Newark. I have a connection time of 2 hours and 30 minutes. Am I screwed, or do you think I'll be okay.

Also, if I could get a step by step guide on what to do to successfully connect to my Dulles flight in Terminal C, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
Yes, you will 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 your departure terminal (could be A or C) and then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time. Yes, when you go through immigration you will have to go see an agent who will activate your emigration visa.
Also, you should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you, Zap. :)
hi i am flying fro manchester to orlando however i have a 5 hour layover in newark and was wondering can i leave the airport? or can i go from the terminal back to the pre security as they have better shopping and food in the pre security area. if anyone has any idea would be a great help or any other options you have for something to do during the layover thanks!
Yes, you can leave the airport. You will be outside security when you clear US Customs. There is NOT better food and shopping pre-security at Newark, most of the food is inside security. You could buy a day pass to the United Club to spend time comfortably.
I booked a flight for Thursday noon (12:45pm) in march from DFW with AA. I should arrive at 5:07pm in EWR Terminal C. My next flight is with Lufthansa to MUC from Terminal B at 8:45pm. Since the tickets are booked with different airlines and the plane from DFW has a on-time rating of only 50% last month I feel like it still could get a little tight. According to flightstats the avg. delay is around 45 min.

I do have to get my luggage transit from C to B and then check in, go through customs again and make it to my flight, right?

Does anyone know if AA would responsible if the flight has a delay of more then one hour and I can't catch my flight?
AA does not use Terminal C. They use Terminal A. You should have enough time. You just need to claim your bags, take them on the AirTrain to Terminal B, re-check your bags with Lufthansa and go through security. Since you purchased two separate reservations, AA has no responsibility if you miss your connection. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Thank you very much for your explanation! I really hope that the plane just won't be late.
How easy is customs? I only have 1 and 15 minutes to catch my plane to Seattle. I am flying from the DR so will need to go thru immigration in terminal C
You may arrive in Terminal B. That is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in Newark. 90 minutes is the minimum and 2 hours is more reasonable.
I am flying on a United flight from Rome to Newark with a 1 hour 30 minute connection to a SFO bound flight on United. Is that enough time to clear US Customs and go through Security for the SFO flight, with no checked luggage?
Without checked bags, I think you can make it if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks...what is the quickest way from Terminal B (arrival from Rome) to Terminal C (departure to SFO)?
Since you will already be outside security when you clear Customs and re-check your bags, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and then go through security.
I am arriving at terminal b united airlines flight from Scotland we are catching a united airlines onward connection to Las Vegas from terminal c we have 2 hours 10 minutes is this enough time
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks so much puts my mind at ease
DS are you going for the fight?
No just a holiday
Ah right, nice one ,enjoy :)
