  • Baggage and Security
    Mar 5, 2015
    SFO to CDG... changing planes in Newark early April... am I correct that my bags will be checked thru to final destination and that I do not have to go thru security again ?


    sorry I should have said I am flying United...


    Yes, assuming you bought both flights together your bags will be transferred and you only have to walk between your arrival gate and your departure gate.


  • Connecting Flights Advice
    Mar 5, 2015
    Hi, This is only my second time flying and I'm doing so alone, so I'm quite nervious/anxious. I'm looking for any advice cause the internet can only do so much.. My carrier for both flights is United. My flight leaves Pittsburgh at 5:23am & is scheduled to arrive at 7:03am. It says the flight is United Express. From what I gathered it will be arriving in Terminal C (Level 1). I got this information from Newark Flight status. I then have a 53 minute connecting time. My second flight departs Newark at 7:56am for Ft.Lauderdale. Operated by United, flight status says out of Terminal C (Guessing Level 2 or 3). What is the process for this? I've never done connecting flights before, and I know the time frame isn't the biggest of gaps. Should I be okay? I arrive then what do I have to do, check in? Go through security again? Any information is helpful, encouraged, and appreciated. Thank you


    Yes, the 5:23 AM flight from PIT to EWR arrives in terminal C and all flights to FLL depart from Terminal C. All you have to do is follow the signs from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You can download the United App to your phone and it will help you by giving you the location of your second gate and if the flight is on-time or not. You do not have to go through security or do anything. You will get both boarding passes when you check-in online or at the airport in Pittsburgh or even on the app.


  • Flight Transfer at EWR- Need to recheck in the Bags
    Mar 4, 2015
    Hi .. First time flyer... My flight is from MUMBAI ( BOM) to Jacksonville thru EWR. Have to change the terminal and on board a different Airline (United Airlines) Domestic flight to Jacksonville. Do I need to pick the baggage, go thru immigration clearance and redo the security check in? Please Help!!!!!!!!


    If you purchased your tickets together in one purchase, You will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then if your bags are tagged through to JAX you can re-check them at the transfer desk. Otherwise look up which terminal your flight will depart from. United flights to JAX depart from both Terminal A and C. Take the AirTrain to your departure terminal, then re-check your bags if you haven't already. Get your United boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.


  • LHR - EWR - MCO
    Mar 3, 2015
    My family is flying in from London to Orlando, with a layover in Newark. When doing the layover and going through customs, will they have to go through and out of the secure area of terminal b, take the airtrain to terminal c and then have to recheck their bags and go through security again? Or will their bags just transfer to their next flight? If so, can they take the shuttle bus to the other terminal so they don't have to go through security again?


    They can re-check your bags at the transfer desk in Terminal B. Then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. Everyone has to go through security after going through customs. There is a chance they will arrive in Terminal C. They will still have to go through security.


    Awesome thanks so much for your help!


  • 41 Min Layover Enough time ?!
    Mar 2, 2015
    First Time Flyer, young kid, can run if needed haha! Leaving Boston 7:00 am, arriving in EWR at 8:27, 9:08 flight to SRQ. Both United Airlines and both bought on same itinerary. Will I be at the same Terminal when I arrive, if not where do I go and how long does it take? Any tips would help! Thanks


    Both flights should be in Terminal C. You just need to run between gates and hope your first flight is on-time.


    Thanks Zap:), you almost positive it should be in Terminal C?


    All Mainline domestic flights (Flight number under 2000) arrive in C. Also, all United Express flight flown by the Dash 400 aircraft also arrive in C.


  • London Heathrow to Pittsburgh via EWR
    Mar 5, 2015
    Hi, I'm flying into EWR from London Heathrow, and then onto Pittsburgh. I have 1h30 to make the connection. Is that likely to be enough time? Will I need to collect my bags, clear immigration, and re-check in for my second flight? Or can I clear immigration in Pittsburgh? (I don't have a US passport (UK) so worried about how long it might take to clear immigration.)


    You have the procedure correct. You will do everything in Newark. 90 minutes is possible but leaves very little time to spare in case there is a delay.


    Do you think having hold luggage is creating an unnecessary potential for delay, or have you factored waiting for luggage into your "90 mins is possible" comment? Thanks for the info, by the way.


  • Edinburgh to Orlando
    Feb 26, 2015
    We are travelling fro Edinburgh to Orlando by United via EWR Do we pick up our bags at EWR and transfer them Do we change terminals


    Yes, you will have to pick up your baggage after you go through US Immigration, then go through US Customs, then re-check it at the transfer desk. You will likely have to change terminals as you will likely arrive in Terminal B but you will depart from Terminal C. However there is a chance you will arrive in Terminal C. Either way you will have to go through security in Terminal C.


  • baggage when miss EWR connecting flight
    Feb 23, 2015
    Glasgow to LAX via EWR, booked together, both United. Should be pick up bags, customs, recheck bags, security, gate. If that security check is slow and miss flight, what happens to the rechecked bags ? Return journey is SFO to Glasgow via EWR, again both booked together and United, this time bags should go through without our handling at EWR, just go from arrivals gate to departure gate, both Terminal C. If first flight delayed and miss connection at EWR what happens to bags ? Do they somehow automatically make it onto whatever flight United might rebook us onto ?


    In regards to your first question. Your bags may make the original flight in which case they will be in the bag office at LAX when you arrive. If they don't make the original flight they will try to put them on the flight you are on. Same on your return journey, except that since there's only one flight per day from EWR to GLA, they will probably just arrive on the next day's EWR-GLA flight, even if you arrive earlier by them routing you though somewhere else in Europe.


  • Oslo - EWR -LAX
    Feb 21, 2015
    Hi, we are flying with United Airlines from Oslo to Lax, with a layover of 90 minutes at EWR. Is it enough time? If missing the connection, would rebooking be possible? Thanks inadvance for your help.


  • SFO to EWR with international connection to SNN
    Feb 20, 2015


    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flight should be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 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.
