  • No checked in luggage
    Jul 29, 2016
    Hi In some Us airport you have a line at immigration a for connecting flights no checked in luggage? Is this the case in EWR? I have 1h44 landing from Barcelona and connecting to Houston and am not planning to take in any checked in luggage.


    I can find no evidence that EWR has OneStop. That doesn't mean they don't - it just means they haven't publicized it anywhere. So I would go in with the assumption that they don't have it.


  • 2 hours & 23 mins in layover in EWR

    Im flying into EWR onboard United from HKG and will be connecting to GSO via another United. Ticket says I have to transfer from Terminal B to Terminal A. Do you think the 2 hours & 23 mins will be enough for all the immig and customs check and check in to domestice? I understand that I have to check out my bags for the customs. Do I have to bring my bags all the way to Terminal A or can I just check them in at Terminal B?


    You will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • Is it enough time or is there assistence
    Jul 28, 2016
    I arrive at gate C97 with UA665 from Houston and fly to Zurich on flight UA134 from gate C75, I only have 40 min. Is this enough time? If not is there assistance that I van get so i do not miss my intercontinental flight


    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. You don't have time to wait for assistance - just run!


  • Connecting Flight
    Sep 7, 2016
    I'm arriving at EWR, Terminal B on Friday 9th September at 11:45. I then have a connecting flight to Pittsburgh at 1:18 (Not sure what terminal yet) This gives me a 1 hour 33 minutes to get my bags and get through customs. Both flights are with Unites, is this enough time? The operator advised this usually takes 1 hour but just want some advice. The next flight to Pittsburgh is 4:10 so would mean a 4 hour wait in the airport. Thanks :)


    This is a very difficult connection. It would be slightly easier if you travel without checked bags.


    Would you say this is impossible to do with checked bags? I'll be away for a week so I was looking to take a suitcase


    It's not outright impossible, but it's pretty close. It depends on everything going perfectly.


    Hi. Arriving in TB from Dublin at 1515 on Friday 9th. We will have pre-cleared immigration & customs in Dublin, and will be connecting to 1728 flight to PIT departing TC. Is that enough time for connection? Can we connect from TB to TC (flying United) airside without going back thru security.


  • layover time is it enough?
    Jul 27, 2016
    I am travelling from Newcastle UK to Newark and then on the San Francisco next month. I am flying with United Airlines. My flights give a layover time of 95 minutes. Will I need to recheck bags etc? Is this enough to get my connecting flight?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to terminal C if you do not arrive there, and go through security. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly, realistically this is probably not enough time. However, United does have frequent flights from EWR to San Francisco that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.


  • baggage and terminals
    Jul 27, 2016
    We will be travelling back to Halifax NS Canada from Atlanta GA. with United Airlines.We have one stop in Newark. Do we have to claim our baggage before connecting to another flight, or is the baggage transfered from one plane to another. I think we clear customs back in Halifax. Also, will we have to change terminals in Newark ?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. You may have to change terminals in Newark - if you do United runs a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in Terminal A and their gates in Terminal C.


  • Clearing border and customs, connecting terminal C to A
    Jul 27, 2016
    HI, I have a crew of 5 people (4 UK citizens and 1 US citizen) arriving EWR with UA in Terminal C on Friday. We have to clear Passport control and then have a carnet stamped for our professional equipment before then making our way to Terminal A for our connecting flight with UA to STL. We have about 2 hours 20 mins to do this. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if we collect baggage upon arrival and have it cleared with customs in Terminal C, and if so does it get rechecked again in Terminal C or do we have to bring it with us to Terminal A? And will be have enough time to get through all this? Thanks!


    Yes, you will claim your bags and clear customs in Terminal C. You will be able to re-check it immediately after Customs in Terminal C. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Tampa to Glasgow
    Jul 27, 2016
    United changed our flight making a tight connection from UA1024 from Tampa to UA161 to Glasgow. We have less than an hour to make our connection. Our only other choose is to arrive at noon. Help?


    That's possible. All you have to do in Newark on your way to Glasgow is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Short connection?
    Jul 27, 2016
    I have a 2 hour 30 minute connection Int'l - Domestic with Delta on both legs, will this be enough time in January?


    Where are you flying from and to?


    From CDG to RDU.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Transfer from Terminal A to C 1.5 hours
    Jul 26, 2016
    I'm flying from Ottawa into Terminal A, and connecting to San Juan in terminal C. Both are United. I have 1.5 hours to make this connection. Is that enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa and there is a shuttle bus inside security from United's gates in Terminal A to Terminal C.


  • canada layover
    Jul 24, 2016
    Flying to Canada from Germany. My itinerary is Munich->Newark->Toronto. My layover in Newark though is only 95 minutes. Will I be required to go through customs, get my suitcase, re-check, and then go through security or will be directly connected to a plane to Canada?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to your departure terminal, and go through security. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.


  • Advice please
    Jul 26, 2016
    I'm flying with my family from Houston (IAH) on UA into Newark (EWR) term C and flying onto Bermuda (BDA) on UA, also term C. We will have checked in baggage. Our agent said the 65 mins between flights was enough and baggage would be checked through - was he giving me correct advice? Although he also said it was my only option if wanting to arrive and depart from the same airport! Please advise.


    Yes, that is correct. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks ZAP - a real relief - I was starting to doubt the advice of our agent and began getting sleepness nights about having to pick up luggage and re-check it in etc with only an hour!! Our only concern now is that our first flight isn't overly delayed! Thank you for giving me peace of mind - as it is meant to be a holiday after all!


  • Help!
    Jul 23, 2016
    My partner and I are flying to Newark from Birmingham in the UK on Monday then on to San Francisco. We land in Newark at 11.55am and the flight to San Francisco departs at 1.30pm. Is that possible?


    It's barely possible if everything goes perfectly. Note however, that if you miss your connection, United has almost hourly flights from Newark to San Francisco that you can be rebooked on.


  • 1 hour 35 term B to term C with 2 children
    Jul 22, 2016
    I have read that it may be difficult to transfer from terminal B to terminal C in 1 1/2 hours. Why does the airline allow a ticket to be purchased in this way if it is not fisable? I am traveling with 2 children and have hold luggage. How can I ensure I will make my connecting flight as I have private transfers organized once I get to cancun.


    where are you flying from? What airlines are you flying?


  • Transfer from A to C
    Jul 22, 2016
    I am looking at a connection that would require me to transfer from Terminal A to C with only 55 minutes between flights. Is this possible? Do you have to go through security in between the two terminals or can you transfer without going through security again? Thanks


    If both flights are United/United Express then you can take a shuttle bus inside security and should have just enough time.
