    flying Delta from SFO to EWR with a 7 hr layover then flying SAS from EWR to FCO. Can I use a United 1 day pass for the TC united club? I have 1 check in bag. How do I get to TC. Airtran or airside shuttle?


    Yes, you can use your one day pass. Also, SAS does not fly from EWR to FCO nonstop, so you if you are flying nonstop your flight will actually be operated by United. you will have to take the Airtrain to TC because the airside shuttle does not operate to or from the area where the Delta gates are.


    The EWR to FCO is NOT a nonstop flight. Hopefully can ck my bag to SAS (7 hrs. prior to flight) then take Airtrain to United club @ TC. Since I fly in and out of TB can I get a gate pass to TC United club? I have a United one time pass.


    Just called United club and was told no gate pass allowed for a United one time pass.Only allowed for a United club member. BTW, when I return to EWR from Europe, is 1.5 hrs enough time to go thru customs, p/u luggage & get to P4 to catch the last hotel shuttle? Ramada Jersey City last shuttle 10:30 pm. I have US passport


    You will have an onward boarding pass for travel out of Newark that day, so you don't need a gate pass. Yes, 1.5 hours should be enough time to make your shuttle.


    So I can show my SAS boarding pass at TC and get thru security even though I depart from TB?

    Hi,coming from Milano Malpensa to Las Vegas, flight UA Terminal C, 1,5 hour layover at EWR, is it enough?


    1.5 Hours is the minimum allowed time for that connection. So you should be OK if your flight from Milan is on-time but you won't have much time to spare. Both flights will likely be in Terminal C, but you may arrive in Terminal B, which means you will take the AirTrain to Terminal C for your flight to Las Vegas after clearing customs.


    Thank you. My travel agency says the this time is enough but I am not sure,I wll arrive and I will depart from terminal c (flight UA)but please confirm me that when Iarrive in EWR I have to pass immigration then pick up the baggage then re-check the baggage and then pass the security. InAugust I suppose will be a lot of people. Is it right?


    Yes, you have the procedure right and yes, August is the end of the peak transatlantic travel season.


  • Getting from one terminal to another United Express Airline
    Jul 22, 2014
    I am flying in from MCI United Express, and heading out to Moncton, NB,guessing I will be leaving from a different terminal...does the airline have it's own shuttle bus??


    Actually both flights will likely be in Terminal A. However if you do have to go between A and C, then United operates a shuttle bus on the secure side of the airport.


    Really hoping that I don't have to leave Terminals, first time flying by myself and I am a so intimidated by this large airport....hoping that I can find my connecting flight without too much stress. Thanks for the reply. Any tips to make this easier I welcome!!!


  • Short Connection time
    Jul 19, 2014
    Hello .. I'm booking a flight from MCO (Orlando) to Toronto (YYZ) on United/United Express with a 1hr 14min stopover in EWR. Is that enough time for me to make the connection? Thanks in advance for your help.


    At EWR, United Express uses Terminal A (United domestic flights are either at TA or TC). Your connecting flight to YYZ should be at TC (if at TA, United will shuttle you gate-to-gate to TC) You have enough time for either scenario.


    Sajul has it reversed. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal A. But he is indeed correct in that there is a secure-side shuttle between Terminals C and A at EWR.

    Arriving at EWR from Mumbai by UA49 at 5.10 am . Indian passport holder on B1/B2 Visa. Connecting flight to Houston at 7.45 am UA1640 . Is this transit time enough to catch the connecting flight. Will immigration be done at NEWARK OR HOUSTON? DO WE NEED TO COLLECT LUGGAGE EVEN IF THROUGH CHECK IN IS DONE TO HOUSTON? WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF TRANSFER OF LUGGAGE AT EWR?


    Yes you have enough transfer time. Your United Airline flight arrives at Terminal C, where you will need to go through immigration process. Thereafter your domestic flight to Houston (IAH or HOU?) could depart either from Terminal C or Terminal A. If departing from Terminal A, United's shuttle bus will take you there. For detailed international arrivals and terminals at EWR, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ewr, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Thanks for the update. It is for IAH and mostly from Terminal C. Do we need to collect the baggage at EWR and Re check in for IAH even though it is through check in done at Mumbai?


    The immigration process involves passport control, pickup of bags, going through customs clearance & re-check-in bags where indicated. (This is separat from 're-check-in bags thereafter applying to passengers which have bought either two separate tickets, or their incoming airlines does not transfer bags to your next flight - in which cases they would have to take their bags to the connecting terminal & re-check it in there. )


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal C. You can re-check your bags with United right after you clear customs. They will already be tagged through to Houston but you have to claim them to go through US Customs in Newark.


  • BOS to EWR to Costa Rica
    Aug 7, 2014
    Traveling to Costa Rica from Boston, with a change in Newark. I have 46 minute layover in Newark. Does anyone know which terminal I'll come into from Boston, and which I'll be leaving for Costa Rica? Really worried about the layover...


    Are you lying United the whole way? Your flight from Boston will arrive in Terminal A or C and your flight to Costa Rica will depart from Terminal C. If you have to change terminals United runs a shuttle bus inside security.


    Thanks for the info - it is united all the way. If I do come in terminal A, does it take long to get to terminal C?


    It can take up to 30 minutes to get to C, depending on how long you have to wait for the shuttle and how quick the shuttle runs.


    How did the 46 minute layover go? We have the same itinerary. What terminals did you arrive and depart in Newark? Did you have to take shuttle.


  • Connection, termincal C -> B
    Jun 26, 2014
    I will arrive from the Carrabian with UA in termincal C but have a connection flight out of US from terminal B. I have around 90 minutes to catch the connecting flight, is that enough ? Do I have to get my baggages and check in again in terminal B ?


    Were your tickets bought together or separately? What airline are you flying out of B? If bought together you can re-check your bags in Terminal C after you clear customs. 90 minutes leaves no time to spare for your connection. It will be difficult.


    Those are two seperate tickets so I can´t check my bags all the way. I fly with Icelandair from terminal B.


    Then no, you will have a very tough time making it in 90 minutes. You will have to take the baggage with you to Terminal B. Unless your flight arrives early (which is very rare at EWR, especially in the afternoon and evening), you won't make it to Terminal B with your baggage prior to the baggage check cutoff time.


    It will be hard to make your transfer in the time you have, but it's doable. You will both arrive and depart from Terminal 8. Upon arrival, you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then drop your bags at the baggage re-check with American. Then you will go to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate. If you miss your connection then you will be rebooked on the next AA flight to Los Angeles, of which there are many.


  • No shuttle avail
    Jun 23, 2014
    My daughter just flew into EWR terminal C......had to get to terminal A for connecting flight....web site says Shuttle Available.....It was not....now she has to take the Air Train and go thru security again....Are you kidding me...... FIX THE SHUTTLE SERVICE.....


    The shuttle should be available. This is not EWR or United's website, so your complaint will not be heard here by anyone who can do anything about your problem.


  • Tight connection withthin same terminal
    Jun 19, 2014
    I'm arriving at and leaving from Terminal C. Will 43 mins be enough time to make that connection?


    Jun 19, 2014
    Need some advice, I've booked a holiday with a New York Stopover. On our return our flights are as follows-ORLANDO 15.20 - 18.26 and then 19.35 - 07.30 GLASGOW . Is this connection possible or do I need to arrive in New York earlier?


  • Can find my way from TC to TB by walkin if the AirTrain does not work?
    Jun 15, 2014
    I have a connected flight from Newark to Stockholm and I need to find my way from terminal C to terminal B but the Airtrain is closed at the time and does not work. Any ideas?


  • Coming from Stockholm then to St. Louis
    Jun 15, 2014
    We are flying in with United and then going on to St. Louis with United. Should we have enough time to get through customs, recheck our bags, go through security again in 1 hr 40 min? We normally go through O'Hare, I am not so familiar with Newark.


  • is 2h45m enough for a lay over in EWR? (route FRA->EWR->BWI)
    Jun 13, 2014
    I come from Frankfurt (FRA) and need to pass the customs and border control before getting the next flight to Baltimore (BWI). Is 2 hours 45 minutes enough time to catch the next plane, or do I have to expect longer waiting times and should go for a different route?
