    A friend and I arrive from Syracuse at 11:28 am on United Express (which tends to be in terminal A) and have to connect to United flight Phoenix, AZ that departs at 12:09pm. United confirmed its a valid connection. What is the fastest and easiest way to get from Terminal A to C?


    There's a shuttle bus between A and C that runs on the secure side, but taking it can still take 15-20 minutes. You will have to hope that your first flight is on time to have any hope of making this connection. At least there are flights later in the day and/or other options to re-book you to phoenix if you miss your connection.


    I don't understand why they would schedule a flight so close together. But thank you for your help.


  • airtrain vs. shuttle bus

    when taking the airtrain between terminals, you have to go through security again, correct? But if you take the shuttle bus does that mean you don't have to go through security again? Which is faster overall?


    That is correct. If you are connecting from A to C or vice-versa, it is probably faster to use the shuttle.


  • Enough Time?
    Mar 24, 2013
    I have a flight this summer from Denver to Newark then from Newark to Madrid, both through United Airlines. I arrive at Newark at 6:30PM and my flight to Madrid leaves there at 8:20PM. That leaves me 1 hour and 50 minutes. I don't know which terminals I will be arriving at or leaving from. Will they be the same? Will I need to do anything with baggage or security again even though I will have already done it in Denver? I haven't flown often and don't know the airport at all. I am really scared to miss my flight! Any advice would be appreciated!


    Both flights will likely be in Terminal C so you won't have to do anything except go to the gate for your Madrid flight. You won't have to do anything with security or with your baggage

  • Time for connection B-C a lot of baggage
    Mar 19, 2013
    Hi, How long should take connection from B to C. Arriving from Europe with a lot of baggage and infant on hands Wednesday 2pm April. Thanks


    If using different airlines, make sure your first airline will transfer your bags to the second one. As an international arrival, you will need to go through passport check, pick up bags (use the baggage carts there) and go through customs clearance. If airline transfers your bags, simply re-check them in where indicated; you have 2 options: Enlist the help of a Skycap in that area to get you to TC, or take your baggage cart and exit the terminal; then take a taxi to TC (an elevated train runs from terminal to terminal in the unsecured area, but you can't take the cart on it).

    Hi. I am looking at a flight pairing from Montreal to Newark and then Newark to Fort Meyers on United Airlines. It is on a Wednesday with the layover at around 2pm. I assume that customs clearance will be done in Montreal and baggage checked through to Fort Meyers. Is 52 minutes enough time to change gates? I will be travelling with my 20 month old baby (carrying her in a baby carrier, no gate checked items), of course providing the flights are on time...


    Yes, 52 minutes is doable and considering it's at 2 PM, there's probably another flight to Ft. Myers after that if you miss your connection due to delays.


  • Connecting in Newark for Halifax
    Mar 5, 2013
    We have a flight from Atlanta to Halifax with a change connection in Newark. We have to get from Terminal C to A in 55 minutes. Does anyone know if we will have to reclaim baggage for customs/inspection; or can we check it thru from ATL?


    You will not have to claim baggage in EWR. It will be checked through to Halifax in Atlanta. You will clear immigration in Halifax.

    During a 5-hour layover we want to meet with friends who live in the Newark area. Is there a place we can meet for dinner and conversation with poeple who aren't taking flights? Thanks.


    Open http://www.ifly.com, then click on EWR Airport Services under QUICK LINKS and choose "Restaurants & Stores", then click on your terminal.

    Hi Im flying from Miami to Birmingham with a stop off at Newark airport there is 10 hours between my connecting flight. Am I able to leave the airport to visit new york if my baggage has been checked all the way through to Birmingham or do I have to check my baggage out and then re-check when I return to the airport?


    Airline policies differ - it is best to contact your airline.


    If your bags are checked through then you can leave/return to the airport as you wish. They will be transferred to your next flight despite the long connection.

    Can I check my bag in Seattle all the way through to Lisbon even though I have to change planes in Newark. Is an hour layover in Neward enough to make my connection? Will it be better not check,m just have a carry on? Leaving June 13 return June 27. US Airway flight.


    US Airways does not fly SEA-Newark or Newark-Lisbon. Are you sure you're not on United? An hour is tight, but doable. Yes, United would check your bags through to Lisbon in Seattle.


  • Terminal C to Terminal A from Shannon
    Feb 3, 2013
    I'm flying into Newark on the 7th June from Shannon. Flight scheduled to land @ 11:20. My connecting flight to Nashville leaves from Terminal A @ 12:24. With the full pre-clearance facilities at Shannon and my bags checked all the way to Nashville can I make this connection? Thanks


    Yes, assuming your flight is on time it should be pretty easy.

  • Terminal A to C

    Hi. I'm flying in from the UK to Baltimore later this year, with a connection in Newark. Flights with United/United Express. Inward journey looks ok with a 2.5 hour layover at EWR. Return from BWI is a little tighter at 1.5 hours. On my return journey from BWI will my hold baggage be checked straight thru to the UK, i.e. will I have to collect it in Newark or will I just have to get myself and hand luggage from TA to TC and thru security. Should I be worried at the connection time at Newark? (on a Sunday in September)


    Yes, your baggage will be checked straight through to the UK in Baltimore and you won't have to collect it in Newark. As long as your first flight is on time or close to it you'll have plenty of time. The other good thing is that United has lots of flights from Newark to London, so if you miss that one they can put you on another (assuming you're not already on the last one).


    Thanks Zap


    Thanks for the reply ZAP. I'm actually returning to Manchester rather than London. There isnt a later flight to Manchester but there is one to London. If I missed my Manchester flight and United put me on the London flight (just to get me to the UK overnight), would they bear the cost of getting me to Manchester from London?

    Im am leaving out of montreal to newark on a united flight and connecting on a united airlines flight two hours later. I will pass through security and clear US customs in montreal. Do i have to re pick up my luggage in newark and re-check them in? and do I have to go through security again?


    On arrival at EWR, simply follow the Airtrain sign and board the train to Terminal C, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. United will transfer your bags. Only international arrivals without US preclearance by participating airports need to go through immigration/customs clearance (as you will on your return).


    thanks alot!


  • Connecting from TC to TA
    Jan 21, 2013
    Not familiar with this Airport. Coming from Canada via United, arriving at TA, and will have to clear US Customs there. Transfer to Terminal C for a United flight. Is it possible to connect while remaing in a secure area? Would it be better to connect via AirTrain or shuttle bus? We have 50 minutes if the flights are on time. Is this long enough?


    I presume your Canadian Airport has no customs clearance, in which case you will, on arrival at EWR, Terminal C, need to go through passport check, pick up bags, & go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bags. Thereafter you need to take the Airtrain to TA. (If you had US Customs clearance in Canada, you could use the shuttle bus or the train). 50 mins. should suffice in either case.


  • A to C in 20 min?
    Jan 20, 2013
    I have to go from TA to TC in 20 min. Is that possible? And how do I do it without having to go thru security again?


    At EWR you have to choices for transferring from TA to TC: 1. Hop on the AirTrain (serving pre-security, non-sterile areas on the Gate Level of all terminals and free within the Airport) and get off at your connecting terminal within minutes - however to get to your connecting gate you need to go through security check first. 2. You can also take the shuttle bus between TA & TC - at TA (near gate A28), TC (near gate C71). NOTE: Gates level of Terminal C leads to Gate Area C1, arranged in a Y-shape, with gates C70-99; Gate Area C2 (gates C101-C115); and Gate Area C3 (gates C120-139).
