  • Connecting from Terminal A to Terminal C in 1hr 20m
    Aug 31, 2016
    Flying with United from DCA to EWR, and then EWR to HKG. Will 1hr 20mn enough time? Will I need to go through security checkpoint when going from Terminal A to C?


    That is enough time. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.


  • Going out
    Aug 31, 2016
    Hello! I will be flying from Shannon (Ireland) to Mexico and stopping at Newark for six hours. I was wondering if I would be able to go out and meet with someone and how long before the flight should I be going through security again.


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon so when you get to Newark you will be free to go where you want. You should be back at the security checkpoint about 3 hours before your flight to Mexico.


    Will I have to re-check my bags or will they go straight on the other flight?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags.


  • connecting flight times
    Aug 29, 2016
    I have booked a holiday to Las Vegas which involves flying from Birmingham UK to Newark on United Airlines, then catching a connecting flight to Las Vegas. On first landing in the USA, do we have to clear immigration and customs, and recheck our bags before boarding the connecting flight? Also the next flight is in another terminal (C, we are arriving at terminal B). I am worried that the 90 minutes between flights will not be long enough for us to make the connecting flight, but the holiday company just says that it is a legal connection time. What happens if we miss the connecting flight? Please can anyone provide any advice.


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AIrTrain to Terminal C, and go through security and to your departure gate. This is a legal connection but it is very difficult.


  • doubt on connection flight. do I can get put to the airport lounge?
    Aug 25, 2016
    I will flirt from Bogotá to Amsterdam. I'm taking a connection flight on Newark. I have a friend who lives on NY and I wanna know if I can meet him on the airport before my flight


    How long of a connection do you have? Once you clear US Immigration and Customs in Newark you will be outside security and can meet your friend there.


    I will be from 350pm to 650. What do you think ? :)


    I personally don't think that's enough time to be worth it unless he lives very close to the airport. You'll get out of customs at about 5 and will have to go back to the security line at about 5:20


  • Returning from Brussels to Panama via Newark
    Aug 25, 2016
    I am returning from Brussels in Europe to Panama in Central America via Newark. I have 2:15 hours for the connection and I am only coming with carry on. Two weeks ago took me 3 hours to get through Houston during a connection so I am concerned that 2:15 hours is not enough at this time of the year in Newark...


    This is enough time, as long as your flight from Brussels is on time.


  • From IND to VCE through EWR
    Aug 24, 2016
    I will travel from Indianapolis IND to Venice VCE through EWR. I will arrive at terminal A in EWR and will leave from terminal C with 55 minutes available for the connection. Is it feasible? Can I go from terminal A to terminal C avoiding customs? How much time does it take to do this connection? Thank you!


    It's possible. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. There is a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.


  • layover time newark to las vegas
    Aug 23, 2016
    hi there, im flighing from buffalo to newark,then to las vegas, is 3 hours long enough layover time


    If both tickets are on the same reservation that is plenty of time.


    thanks ZAP. both flights are with united but im booking them separately, i can chose 3 hour or 7 hours


    3 hours should be enough time, especially if you don't have checked bags or you get your checked bags tagged through to Las Vegas.


    really helpful thank you ZAP


  • UA to United Express in 1hr 5 min
    Aug 23, 2016
    Is this connection doable? We will have pre-cleared US customs overseas but need to change terminals, I believe? With wheelchair?


    Yes, that should be possible.


  • Connection flight from REF
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'll be arriving in EWR from REF (Reykjavik) via WOW airlines and have a connecting flight to Dallas via Southwest with 2 hours in between. Is that enough time if I have checked luggage? THANKS!


    The code for Reykjavik is KEF, not REF. I do not think that is reasonably enough time for your connection.


    Oops, thanks for the correction, ZAP. Ok, I will have to make other plans and hopefully just pack a carry on! Yikes!


  • Sufficient connection time from Ottawa Canada terminal A to terminal C
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'm traveling from Ottawa Canada (terminal A) to Memphis TN (terminal C) through EWE. My flights provide me with a whole 38 minutes between scheduled arrival/departure. If all goes well, is this humanly possible?


    It's possible but leaves no time to spare. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa. In Newark you need to take United's shuttle bus inside security from A to C and run to your gate. It's a very difficult connection.


    Thanks so much ZAP, greatly appreciated. I'll give it a try.


  • ZRH - EWR -BUF on United. enough time?
    Aug 22, 2016
    Hi, wondering if 1h45 layover connecting from ZRH on United (operated by Swiss) to BUF on United also is enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • From Oslo terminal b to San Francisco terminal c
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'm flying in from Oslo, terminal b. Is it possible to make my flight to San Francisco in terminal c if I only have 1,5 hour!??


    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thanks :) Any advise on how to make the flight? What to do and where to go?


    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 Terminal c, go through security and to your departure gate. If you miss your connection, United will rebook you on their next available flight to San Francisco.


  • AC to United Connection with wheelchair assistance?
    Aug 17, 2016
    We will be connecting from YVR Air Canada flight to catch a flight to SNN, codeshare with United. There will be 2 1/2 hrs between flights. I understand the connections will be from Terminal A to B. Is this sufficient time? Will there be any problems having wheelchair service throughout?


    It will actually be A to C. There shouldn't be any issue with the wheelchair service. That should be enough time.


  • Do you go through TSA again when transferring from international fligh
    Aug 17, 2016
    My wife is arriving EWR from Athens. She wants to bring olive oil t(hat she'll buy in the Duty Free area of the Athens airport) in her carryon luggage. We know she has to go through Customs on arrival, but does she have to go through TSA prior to her connection to a domestic destination? In other words, can she still hand-carry the olive oil from Customs to her domestic gate, or will she have to check it because it'll be larger than the allowed liquid amount?


    After she goes through Customs and before she re-checks her checked bag she will have to put the olive oil into her checked bag. She won't be able to bring it through security.


  • time needed to go from Southwest terminal to United terminal
    Aug 17, 2016
    checking bags to Barcelona on United for a group tour


    I reccomend 2 hours for your outbound flight, and 3 hours for your return.
