  • Terminal A to Terminal C Transfer
    Sep 19, 2012
    I am traveling with elderly parents arriving at Terminal A from Indianapolis and flying to Munich from Terminal C. What is the easiest, fastest way from Terminal A to Terminal C? Thank you.


    On arrival at EWR's Terminal A follow signs to the Airtrain connecting to Terminal C - at Terminal C you will need to go through security check before continuing to your connecting gate.


    Thank you very much. Is there also a bus service within the terminal (rather than going through security again). We only have one hour 25 min to make our connection.


    There is a shuttle directly from A to C but with only 25 minutes for a connection, you'll be pushing it either way. The bus doesn't run as soon as you get there so you may have to sit on it for a bit before leaving, then you have to travel across to C. Not only that, but you may find that the stop is at the opposite end of C (which is huge) than where your gate is. If that's the case, especially with 2 elderly parents... it could be a close call. On the other hand, the shuttle is much faster and if the lines at security are low, you might fly through. But if the lines are long, you're in trouble. In addition, the security screeners were, in my opinion, extremely rude and seemed to take pleasure in holding up the line and taking people out for extra screening. If it were me, I'd opt for the bus but you didn't give yourself much room to breathe on the schedule. You better hope your plane isn't late to begin with.


    Thank you--our connection time is one hour and twenty five minutes (not just 25 min). My question is---IF we take the bus that goes from A to C--do we have to go through security again? It's my understanding that we would have to go through security again IF we take the Airtrain. I appreciate YOUR help. Thank you.


    Sorry, I misread that as just 25 minutes. 1:25 is about the same amount of time I had to connect from A to C. No, if you take the bus from A to C there is no security check since the boarding stations for the bus are inside the terminal. You have to leave the secured area to get to the Airtrain so if you did take that, you would definitely have to go through security again when arriving at C. So, in summary: Bus - No Security Check; Airtrain - Security Check


    Thank you SO much---this is what I was hoping for:). Last question--promise---where do I catch the bus--what level/near what gate in Terminal A? Thank you again--I really appreciate this info! Taking the bus will really help us with time.


    I believe the door for the bus is next to Gate A28. It's the first gate on the right if facing the exit. Now, I'm not exactly sure if there are any other ways to get to the bus because I believe Terminal A is split into 3 round areas which are tiny. If you happen to arrive in one of the other two sections (not the A20s) then there might not be a bus terminal and, from what I recall, the security check was in the narrow hallway leading to the A20s area. So if you're not in the A20s, take a look for bus signs. It should be easy because, like I said, the areas are small. If there are none, then you'll likely need to go through Security to get to the bus. If that's the case, you might be better off just taking the AirTrain... Though I'd see if the line into the A20s is short. Though they might not even let you in if your boarding Gate isn't there. It IS an odd airport. Sorry I couldn't be more clear. I hope that helps.


  • dining outside security
    Sep 8, 2012
    i am flying out of a different terminal than my collegue.. is there a good dining spot BEFORE security?


    Sep 6, 2012
    My mother will fly from Istanbul to Newark (nonstop) on September 8th with United Airlines. Flight Arrives at Newark at 18:02 and she has to connect to Houston for 19:40 . Initially they told me she arrived in Terminal C later connection took off from Terminal C also. But on the LH site (where we got the ticket) it says Terminal B arrival and Terminal C for connecting flight. I think she still needs to go through passport/customs etc. and then clear security again? Can anyone tell me where this flight will arrive and if there is enough time to connect? Thanks so much


    At EWR all international arrivals, with the exception of United, arrive at Terminal B. United uses exclusively Terminal C, and Terminal A for a limited number of domestic flights. On arrival she will have to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and then proceed to her connecting gate at TC, or take the Airtrain (follow signs) to TA, where she would need to go through security check before proceeding to gate. Ticket and overhead arrivals screens will indicate whether connecting flight is in TA or TB. Transfer time should suffice.


  • Transportaion from TB to TA
    Sep 4, 2012
    I am arriving at international TB. But from there i need to go to TA and take the domestic flight to Florida. Airline at TB is NOT incharge of transferring the baggage from TB to TA. In this case what is the procedure to be followed? At which terminal is the baggage checkin, port of entry and other immgration checks done? Or do i have to collect all my luggage from TB and take it to TA using the "AirTrain" and then complete the immigration checks in TA ?


    Terminal B at EWR is for international arrivals - you need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and go with your luggage on the Airtrain to Terminal A, where you need to check in your bag, then go through security check and on to your gate.


  • Terminal A to C Transfer
    Aug 29, 2012
    I am arriving to Terminal A at 17.29 and need to catch an international flight from Terminal C at 18.12. What is the fastest way to get between A and C? Will I have to go through security again?


    At EWR you have two options to connect from TA to TAC: (a) hop on the AirTrain (serving pre-security, non-sterile areas of all terminals and free within the Airport)taking minutes. (b) You can also take the shuttle bus from TA to TC. Both options require you to go through security check at TC. Concourse level has three gateways leading to (a) gate area C1 is arranged in a Y-shape, with gates C70 to C99; (b) Gateway C2 has gates C101 to C115; and (c) Gate area C3 has gates C120 to C139. The Shuttle Bus from Terminal C to Terminal A stops at gateway C1, near gate C71. The AirTrain Station is on the Upper Level's center.


  • passport clearance and connecting time
    Aug 25, 2012
    I am flying geneva - st. louis via brussels and EWR. Flying United 961 to terminal B and then UA 4628 to STL. Ticket does'nt state which terminal UA 4628 flies out of. Will i need to clear passport control and go through security again? Connecting time is 1 hr 26 mins.


    Was just checking. Apparently UA 961 arrives at terminal C and not B. Thanks


    At EWR, you will arrive at, and depart from, Terminal C. Only arriving passengers at the U.S. need to go through passport control & customs clearance. Note that TC has 3 gateways: The Concourse level has three gateways leading to (a) gate area C1 is arranged in a Y-shape, with gates C70 to C99; (b) Gateway C2 has gates C101 to C115; and (c) Gate area C3 has gates C120 to C139. On arrival at EWR look at the overhead screens to find your connecting gate.


  • B Bagage to A baggage
    Aug 18, 2012
    How does one get from TB baggage to TA baggage? How long will this take? Is it possible to walk?


    I presume you arrive from an international flight, and your airline will transfer your bags to Terminal A (make sure, if not, you need to take the bag along to Terminal A and check it in there). On arrival, you would have to go through passport control, pick up bag, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bag at the designated area. That can take 35-50 mins. Thereafter you would need to take the Airtrain (follow signs), which serves all terminals in their secured areas and takes only 2 mins.


  • pick up arriving United Express
    Aug 15, 2012
    where is the best place to pick up United Express arrivals


    United Express operates in both Terminals A & C you need to find out which terminal your party arrives at - best place to meet: in the Arrivals Hall near the information counter.


  • Which terminal
    Aug 3, 2012
    I am flying from Newark to Toronto by United (United Express). Which terminal should I go to at EWR airport for departure.


    United Express serves both in Terminals A & C; Your ticket should indicate the terminal with either gate area or gate number. At Terminal 1 it serves Gate Area 1 with gates A10-18; Terminal C Gate Area C1 has gates C70-71; C2 has gates C101-102; & C3 gates 120-139.


  • Terminal A Baggage Pickup
    Jul 30, 2012
    What level do I take for baggage pickup for Terminal A


    At EWR, the baggage pickup at Terminal A is at the ground level /Arrivals Level.


  • Best Pickup Area for Arriving Flights
    Jul 30, 2012
    What is the best pickup area for Terminal A, American Airlines, arriving flight without parking?


    At EWR, pickup is only allowed for passengers already waiting at the curb - no waiting allowed. However, you can use the Dropping off/ picking up a Passenger at the Airport: It is recommended to park your car in either a short-term lot or the parking garage (terminal frontages are for loading & unloading only and unattended cars willl towed.


  • 16 yr old
    Jul 30, 2012
    what guidance, esort, or chaufferring is available for 16 yr old traveling without adult on domestic direct flights?


    to clarify, from securtiy checkpoint to gate within terminal


    EWR has three passenger terminals, all connected by the free Airtrain, which serves the secured areas. If your 16-year old has a ticket, it will indicate the Terminal and gate number: TC is for United Airlines only (which also uses some gates for domestic flights in TA. TB is used for all international arrivals other than United's. If she is transferring to another terminal, she needs to take the train - following signs. A 16-year old does not need escort. Signs will guide her to her/his gates.


  • Where is it?

    I will pick up my daughter at EWR, If it exists, I need to know where is the cellular parking lot located


    EWR does not have a cell phone lot. For passenger pickup, it is recommended to park your car in either a short-term lot or the parking garage (terminal frontages are for loading & unloading only and unattended cars will be towed. 1.

  • Transfer from terminal A to B
    Jul 26, 2012
    I need to drop my in-laws in Terminal B. They are senior citizens and need assistance. I am arriving into Terminal A with them. Do I need to clear security one more time going from one terminal to another? Is there a public option to avoid the hassle and transfer without leaving the secured area so that I can drop them off at their gates?


    1. On Arrival at EWR, Terminal A, you need to take the Airtrain, which runs between the secured areas of all three terminals and arrives/ departs at TA on the Concourse Level, close to the A2 gateway. (Each of the Terminals has three gateways). 2. TB, used for arriving & departing international flights (other than United).Its gateways lead to (a) gate area B1 with gates B40 to B47; (b) gate area B2 with gates B51 to B57 used by British Aways; and Gate Area B3 with gates B60 to B68. You can bring your in-laws only to the gate area B1, B2 or B3. From there, they are only steps from their gate.


  • terminal c to a!!
    Jul 28, 2012
    Hi, i arrive at terminal C at 9:15 p.m... i have to get to terminal A in 57 there a way to get from one terminal to another in under an hour??


    At EWR, Terminal C is exclusively for United Airlines. On arrival, simply follow the "Airtrain" sign - this train runs between the three terminals inside security - you have enough time.


    so i wont have to go through securtiy?


    According to the other posters, yes you will have to go through security if you take the Airtrain. It seems that there are two members here with similar user names that keep saying it's inside security but I'm starting to wonder what their intentions are. To be safe, I wouldn't trust them.


    Isn't there a shuttle bus that goes from terminals c to a and a to c?


    It certainly appears to be so. Or that's what I've been told, at least. I'm planning on using the bus if possible on my upcoming stop at the airport since all signs point to it being the only way to go from A to C without exiting and reentering security.


    im going to try the shuttle bus...i stop at newark to change planes and i have to go from c to a
