    flying with UA from SFO to EWR and have 90 minutes to catch the flight to Ireland (Also UA) will I have to collect my bags and recheck them? Will I also have to go through security there again? Is this enough time?


    No, all you will have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal C and connected beyond security.

    Im coming from Moncton ( Canada) no pre clearance at that airport. I need to catch my flight to Miami. What is the procedure to go throughout customs, will I have to go trough security again? Both flights are United, so I assume both flight will be from terminal C? I have 1h38minutes! Thanks!


    To add, my flight from Moncton arrives at 7am on the 24th of december is this a busy time ?


    Yes, since Moncton doesn't have pre-clearance you will arrive in Terminal C and go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, and re-check your bag, and then go through security. Things shouldn't be TOO crowded on Christmas eve as most people will already be at their destination. You will have to hurry but you should have enough time. Your departing flight will also leave from Terminal C.


    Is it a far distance to walk? One of the traveller isn't a fast walker because she has trouble with her feet.


    It shouldn't be too bad of a walk since everything is in the same terminal. But if you're worried you can request wheelchair service from United by calling them before your trip.

    i have 40 minutes to get from a domestic flight with united into newark to an international flight to edinburgh I have a toddler will I make it? and where do I go?


    Your domestic arrival can be at A or C, and your departure will be from C. You will have to hope your first flight is on-time and move as quickly as possible.

    I'll be flying for the first time by myself (minor) and I have to make a connection from Panama(PTY) in Newark (EWR) on my way to Cleveland (CLE) All flights are on United, one 737 900 and one 737 700. I have 3 hours and 15 minutes between flights. This is my first time at this airport and I'd like to know how to correctly make the connection. Do I have to pick up my bags then re check them. What should I expect at migration or customs. Any help would be appreciated.


    Yes, you will claim your baggage after you go through immigration (where you show them your passport) and then you will go through customs (where you basically just hand them your customs form). You will then be able to re-check your bags with United. Both of your flights will likely be in Terminal C.


    Thanks a lot!


  • Seniors connecting from TB to TA
    Nov 11, 2013
    My Parents are travelling from Lisbon, Portugal to Ottawa, Canada. They are both in their seventies and need to connect from Terminal B to Terminal A with approx. an hour and a half. This will be their first time with connections in Newark. I would appreciate comments from experienced travellers familiar with Newark Liberty Airport. Thank you.


    They'll have to go through US Immigration, then claim their baggage, then go through customs, then re-check their bags, then take the AirTrain to their departure terminal (note that her Ottawa flight may actually depart from A or C) and then go through security and to their gate. They'll have to hurry to make it in just 90 minutes.


  • 1 hour Connection at EWR T-C to T-A
    Nov 4, 2013
    Arriving on UA at EWR from PIT at Terminal C. Have 1 hour to make it to Terminal A for flight to YOW (also UA). Will UA forward checked bags all the way to YOW or do I have to go through security again at Term A? Is there enough time to get from T-C to T-A?


    United will forward checked bags to YOW and if you do have to change terminals (your flight from PIT may actually arrive in T-A as well) you can take the United secure-side shuttle bus and not have to go through security when you change terminals. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK

    Once again, Zap,thank you so much for your second reply concerning to my tight connection at EWR


  • Arriving TB and then go TC to Ft. Lauderdale
    Oct 27, 2013
    I'm a portuguese tourist arriving from Lisbon in terminal B at 15.50 (TP103) on 15th November and transferring to Terminal C for a connecting flight to Ft Lauderdale at 18.56 (UA1416). Will there be enough time for passport check, customs and transfer? We have to pick up bags after go through passport check? Do we bring bags to Terminal C or there is some other droppoint before take the Air train?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. If your bags are checked through to FLL in Lisbon, you will just have to claim your bags after you go through immigration, then go through customs, then you can drop them off at the re-check desk and you won't have to take them to TC with you.


    Grateful for the attention.

    Many thanks, Zap, for your info about shuttle bus service from T-A to T-C, but pls let me have another question. Should be it faster if I take the Air Train between terminals than the shuttle bus despite i have to go thru securuty again on the Air Train option?


    No, because of security (and because it usually shortens the walking distance a little bit) the shuttle bus is pretty much always faster.

    I have only 55 minutes to connect from Terminal A to Terminal C, Ua domestic flt to Ua international. My question is how often shuttle buses are running from T-A to T-C and how long does it take


    I estimate it would take about 20-25 minutes. They run pretty frequently, but it's a bit of a long trip.

    Fastest way from Terminal C to Terminal B


    United has a secure-side shuttle bus if you are staying secure-side (ie arriving on a domestic United flight and don't need to claim or re-check bags). Otherwise take the AirTrain.

    How can I get from Terminal C to Terminal B?


    Take the Airtrain - follow signs - At TB you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.


  • First ever connecting flight in USA
    Oct 15, 2013
    Flying on the 25th of October to Las Vegas from Glasgow but have a connection at newark. I have read so many different things. Do I need to go through security collect my bags and drop them off at terminal c where I will be catching my flight to vegas?


    All international flights at EWR arrive at Terminal B, except United flights arriving at Terminal C. Yes you need to pick up bags, go through customs and re-check-in your bags. Some of United's and all other domestic flights depart from Terminal A. After customs clearance and re-check of bags, board the Airtrain to Terminal A, go through security check and on to your connecting gate.

    What is the fastest way to get from Terminal A .Arrival from Charleston, Sc to Terminal C-Departure to Portland, ME? I have 45 Minutes! Thank you!!!


    At EWR, a shuttle bus outside runs between TA & TC - at TA (near gate A28), at TC (near gate C71) - no security check needed.
