    That should be barely enough time. Just move as quickly as you can.


    Thank you. I arrive with lufthansa. What shiuld i do after passing immigration? As i know united us in terminal 3 or c . How about luggage?


    What about luggage if i travel by lufthansa and then by united. Where i should rechecked baggage. What about boarding card. I travel on one ticket so i should have it printed at first airport where i started trip


    You will arrive in terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk immediately after, then take the airtrain to terminal C and go through security. You will be issued both boarding passes in Frankfurt.


    Thank you . Can i ask someone to help me to get through immigration if the queue was too long?


    No, most of the passengers going through immigration are connecting, you can't cut the line.


    Thank you Zap

    Flying from Zurich to Newark (Swiss) arrival terminal B at 13:50 and having a connection flight from terminal C to Costa Rica (United)at 17:20. I know details in B as follows: US immigration, claiming bag and US customs. Do I re-check my baggage at United desk in Terminal B or Terminal C? in B or C at United deskWhat about my baggage I have to re-check my bag again in terminal B or in terminal C? How I get the fastest way from B to C and how long does it take? And what are the details in C?


    You will recheck at the recheck desk right after customs in terminal B. You will then take the airtrain to terminal C which takes 5-10 minutes.


    And in T C do I have only go through security and and then to gate?

And what is the easiest way from a to c Thank you for your help from one very nervous lady lol


    On your way to Orlando in Newark you will arrive in terminal B go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then take the airtrain to terminal C, go through security and to your gate. On your way back to Birmingham in Newark you will take the United shuttle bus from A to C, you don't have to do anything with your bags.

    I am flying for Mumbai to Kansas City Jet Airways - delta (BOM to AMS to EWR) and connecting flight from EWR is United airline. I have a layover of 16 hrs in Newark. I plan to go out of the airport. Will I get my bags after custom or it will get transferred through? and if getting them back, can I recheck them prior to leaving airport or I need to check bags the next day? Thanks a lot.


    You will claim your bags to go through US customs. You will probably have to wait until the next day to recheck them.

    I am flying from Heathrow to Newark and have a connecting flight from Terminal A to B to Pearson International, Canada (Air Canada). is 1 hr and 35 mins going to be enough time? Also will i have to collect my baggage and re check in?


    No flights from Heathrow arrive in Terminal A. What airline are you flying from Heathrow?


    sorry i meant terminal B (united Airlines) to Terminal A (Air Canada)


    Yes, you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then take the airtrain to terminal A and go through security. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Terminal B query
    Dec 29, 2015
    Hi, My friend will be reaching Newark by 29-Dec 5.15 PM and his connecting flight to Greenville (GSP) has been postponed to 30-Dec 8.00 AM. Since the layover is more, he is planning to leave the airport. Question is after he clears the immigration, can he re-check the luggage at the re-check center and go out of airport? or does he have to re-check only after he returns the next day morning? Many thanks!


    He will have to ask the United agent after arrival.


    Thanks for the reply !!! I will ask my friend to check with an agent


  • Arriving at Terminal B need to get to Yerminal A - How long time wise
    Dec 29, 2015
    I am arriving on an international flight into terminal B and need to make a connecting flight at terminal A. How long will it take me?


    You need a bare minimum of 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended if both flights are on the same reservation. If it's two different reservations I recommend 3 hours.


    Would you know if I will need to clear customs in Newark? My connecting flight goes into Savannah Int'l Airport and I am not sure where I would go through custome. Thanks for the reply.


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Newark.


    Thank you ZAP.


  • Transfer from Terminal A to C, United, 45 minutes only
    Dec 28, 2015
    Hi, I´ll flight from DC to Aruba via Newark with United and I only have 45 min between flights. I read that I can take a shuttle between terminals and without pass again security. Am I right? Do you think is enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, there is a shuttle between terminals inside security. However, you still have very little time to spare with only 45 minutes between flights as the shuttle isn't exactly speedy.


  • Will I make my connection
    Dec 28, 2015
    Flying in from Halifax arrives at 6:15 pm connection to Denver flight leaves at 7:15pm. Any chance making my connection?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal A and have to go to Terminal C, United runs a shuttle inside security between them.


  • Terminal A to C
    Dec 30, 2015
    Fast way to get from Terminal A to Terminal C without having to go through security again


    If you are flying United Express into Terminal A you can take a shuttle inside security to Terminal C. If you are flying another airline you will have to take the AirTrain outside security.


    how long does it take to get from A to C


  • Connecting Flight

    Hi, I am flying from Glasgow and have 2hrs 30mins to get connecting flight to New Orleans. Is this enough time to get through customs? Flying into and out of Terminal C


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Connection flight

    HI, arrived at EWR by Air Canada from MOntreal, and my second flight is by United Airlines to ORange County. Do i take the AirTrain or the Shuttle bus to go from terminal A to Terminal C? Do i have to claim my bags? do i have to go throught security again?


    Air Canada uses a different satellite of Terminal A that the United shutte bus goes to, so you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Montreal and you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark.


    Hi, where can i take the air train at terminal A to go to terminal B?


    The way to the AirTrain is well marked with signs inside the terminal.

    Hi, I am flying from Greece to Newark with my final destination being Iowa. I only have 2 hours in Newark before my next connection flight to Chicago. I am using United Airlines. Is this enough time to go through immigration, get my laggage and check in again? Also, do you know which terminals United uses and wether I will need to change terminals. Thank you so much for all your help.


    Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from Greece is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal C.


  • Newark customs and connections

    I am travelling from Washington via Newark (Express Jet Airlines) to Munich (United) and only have an hour and fifteen minutes time at Newark airport to make the connecting flight. Is there customs? Is the baggage checked through? Can be two different terminals als Newark (A, C) if I got it right - can I make the connection?


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. Your baggage will be transferred for you. You will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in A and C. You have enough time if your flight from Washington is on-time.
