  • Enough time?
    Feb 20, 2015
    Hi, all, We are flying into Newark from Boston. We have 1 hour to get our connection to Orlando. Enough time? Suggestions? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. If you are flying United and arrive into Terminal A, United runs a shuttle bus from Terminal A to terminal C where your flight to Orlando will depart.


    Hi, Lisa, Thanks for your response. We are actually flying Jet Blue, not United. Will we still be alright? It's an early AM flight with our toddler, so you can imagine we don't want to get stuck in the airport. Thanks again!


    Sorry, I should have written your actual screen name- ZAP. I was texting my friend, Lisa! :) Thanks again!!


    Yes, flying JetBlue will make it even easier because they only have a few gates in Newark and they are all close together.


    Where is the shuttle bus located in Terminal A and how often does it come? I only have an hour between flights can I run from A to C?


    No, it's not possible to run between the terminals. The SHuttle bus is pretty frequent. You can also take the AirTrain, which is more frequent but requires going through security again in C.


  • Flying in from Toronto Canada to San Juan
    Feb 17, 2015
    Hi I have a flight from Toronto Canada to San Juan with a connecting flight at EWR (Newark). Will we need to pick up our luggage before proceeding? I think we do customs in Toronto...not sure. We are flying with United Airlines and our connection time is 3H45min (which I think is great considering never have been at Newark...and it seems huge). How easy is it to get to one terminal to the next? Or is there a chance I won't need to change terminals? Thanks


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You may arrive in Terminal A. You will depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle bus between terminals inside security, but you have enough time that you could also take the AirTrain, you would just have to go through security again when you get to Terminal C if you take the AirTrain.


  • Long waiting time
    Feb 17, 2015
    Greetings, on March 13th I will fly from Boston to Berlin via EWR. The waiting time between the two flights is of 11 hours (arrival at 8am departure at 7pm). Do I have the chance to exit the airport, spend some hours in NYC and come back in time for the flight to Berlin? Thank you!


    Yes, you are free to exit the airport. It takes a little over an hour to get to Manhattan via the airtrain and NJ Transit train, so you can have several hours to explore NYC.


  • Terminal B into Terminal C
    Feb 16, 2015
    We fly from BHX into Terminal B at 11.55 and have to catch a connecting flight from Terminal C at 14.10. This gives us 2hrs 15mins to get through security. Will this be enough time? Will we have to check our bags in again?


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate. That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Fling from LAX to NWR for BOM
    Feb 16, 2015
    Hi - We are going from LAX to Bombay through NWR on united flight. We have 1.5 hr of layover at EWR. Do we have to change terminal? Any security clearance we need to do at EWR? I think the EWR to BOM filight is from C terminal. I am not sure about LAX to EWR flight? we have baby with us so wanted to make sure we have enough time and dont have to go through security. thanks in advance Sachin


    If both flights are on United both flights will be in Terminal C and you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.


  • PVD-EWR-HAM Domestic to International Layover
    Feb 12, 2015
    Ive never done an international flight through EWR before. I was wondering, If I check my bag through at PVD then continue on my United Airways flight to EWR, During my hour and a half layover at EWR do I need to go through a security check? im just afraid my layover isnt long enough before reaching my gate to Hamburg Germany.


    Both of your flights should be in Terminal C. All gates in Terminal C are connected inside security, so you will not have to go through security in Newark. Even if you were to arrive in Terminal A, there is a bus that United operates on the secure-side between Terminal A and Terminal C. You have enough time.


  • EWR to GRR w/30 minute Connection
    Feb 12, 2015
    Flying from BOS to EWR to Grand Rapids, MI with only a 30 minute connection when I land in EWR. Is that enough time to make my connection? I can't tell which terminal the Boston flight flies into and which terminal the GR flight flies out of


    That will be very difficult considering your Boston flight will likely arrive into Terminal C and your Grand Rapids flight will definitely depart from Terminal A. United does run a shuttle inside security between the two terminals but it isn't exactly quick. If your flight from Boston is operated by United Express, though, it may arrive in Terminal A, which would leave you enough time to make the connection, assuming it's on-time.


    The flight is operated by United Express


  • connecting from terminal a to terminal c
    Feb 11, 2015
    Hello We are travelling with united from Halifax NS to Costa Rica With a 55 minute transfer in Newark. How do I get from terminal a to terminal c, while staying within the secure section? Do I take the shuttle bus near gate a 28? What level should I be on? I don't have any time to make mistakes.


    There are signs pointing to where the shuttle bus is when you arrive in A or if you don't see them ask a United employee.


  • Skip final leg- Newark luggage question
    Feb 11, 2015
    Hi I am flying United from Punta Cana-Newark-Boston. We have decided to skip the Newark to Boston leg of the flight. My concern is getting my luggage in Newark. Is it true that since it is an international flight, I will have to get my luggage anyway? Can I just leave at that point? If I do it officially, united will charge me change fees for 4 people totally over $800. So, I need to confirm that I will have my luggage in hand due to it being an international flight? Is this true?


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags anyway. Yes, as long as the Newark-Boston leg is the last leg of your trip, you can leave the airport in Newark after you claim your bags and go through Customs.


  • Connecting from Terminal A to Terminal C International to Domestic
    Feb 9, 2015
    Hello we are arriving from London ON Canada into Newark Term A and then connecting to a Flight to Fort Lauderdale Departing Term C Will we have to handle our baggage ? We have approx. 2.5 hour layover I don't believe there is any US Customs Clearance in London Thanks


    You will actually arrive in Terminal C because neither London, ON or Terminal A have US Customs facilities. In Terminal C you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


  • Domestic Connection both in Terminal C
    Feb 8, 2015
    Hello! In a few weeks I will be flying LAX-EWR then from EWR-BQN with a 35 minute layover. Do both of these flights usually depart from terminal C. If so, I anticipate the connection going smoothly. If I have to switch terminals, however, it may be tough. Thanks for your response!


    My apologies, I meant does the LAX-EWR leg usually arrive in terminal C and the EWR-BQN leg depart from terminal C?


    Yes, both of those flights should be in Terminal C.


  • Transit from international to domestic flight
    Feb 6, 2015
    Hi I am travelling from BGO to ORF via OSL and EWR with my 5-year old son this upcoming April. Because of a flight schedule change, our transit time in Newark has been reduced to only 90 minutes. This is less time than I am comfortable with, but the cost of changing the ticket to a later flight to ORF is quite steep. Thus, I just have a few questions: 1. If I explain to the airport staff in the immigration hall that my son and I have a tight connection, is it possible that they may let us get priority in the immigration queue? My family and I had a tight connection at LHR a few months ago, and the staff there were very helpful and let us go through fast-track lanes so that we didn't miss our connecting flight. But does anyone have any experience with the staff at EWR and know how they might respond to such a request? 2. I understand that my son and I have to collect and re-check our luggage after we have cleared immigration. We will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal A. Do we need to bring our luggage all the over to Terminal A and check it at a regular check-in counter? Or does there exist a drop-point in Terminal B we may use? I have not had a transit at EWR for many years, so I do not know what the current procedue is for international to domestic transit at this airport, and since we will be in a rush it would be great to know about this in advance. 3. Are there any other tips that might be useful for me to keep in mind so that we might catch our connecting flight? Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated!


    Unless your flight is late you likely will not need priority in the Immigration queue. Also, most of the passengers on your flight will have connections, so asking to cut in front of them isn't really fair. You will be able to re-check your bags at a desk in Terminal B immediately after you go through Customs. I think you have enough time but it does depend on your first flight being on-time.


    Thanks a lot for your response! Yes, I get your point about cutting in line not being fair, but from experience, quite a lot of passengers on the OSL - EWR flight have New York as their final destination. But you are right that cutting is not fair. I will hope that immigration goes smoothly and that there are no delays. And that if we are unluck and miss the connection, UA will be able to put us on a later flight that day. Thanks again!


  • Domestic Transfer
    Feb 5, 2015
    I will have a connection flying from Montana to Newark with a connection of 45 minutes to then fly to Pittsburgh. I'm guessing that this will be enough time since both flights are domestic but I wasn't sure.


    Yes, it should be, however, you may have to transfer from terminal C to Terminal A. There is a bus that runs between them inside security, but if your inbound flight is delayed and you do have to change terminals, you'll probably have a tough time making your connection.


  • Question about connection time in EWR
    Feb 5, 2015
    I am planning to arrive in EWR via United from Orlando and then connect to a United flight to Delhi. Whether a connection time of one and half hours enough?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in Terminal C.


  • termina A to B on two different tix
    Feb 4, 2015
    Flying into EWR on United into Terminal A and then flying out on Swiss Air from Terminal B. I will have to pick up bags and then recheck them through Swiss Air in Terminal B. What is best way to get from baggage claim in Terminal A to Terminal B?


    The only way between them is the AirTrain.
