  • luggage for transit flight

    Im arriving at newark from manchester uk and landing at terminal b then i have to get to terminal c for a transit flight to san francisco, my agent tells me i have to claim by luggage and put it on the transit carousel. both flights are with united airlines, i have 2 hours and ten minutes between flights so dont have much time to mess around, does anyone know the procedure once ive collected my luggage at terminal b. thanks.

     

    Yes, you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time. If you miss your connection United has almost hourly flights from Newark to San Francisco.

     

    Thanks, we are a little nervous as never been long haul before or flown with connceting flights, good to see it laid out what we have to do, much appreciated.

    All flights are on United or Lufthansa or Austrian Airlines - IND-EWR-DUS. If the flight from IND-EWR is on time, will 2 hours, 5 minutes be enough to make the connection to the EWR-DUS flight?

     

    Yes, you will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal B. United does run a shuttle inside security from Terminal A to the Lufthansa gates in Terminal B.

     

  • Risky? DCA - EWR - VCE, 40 minute connection

    Hi, I'm flying from Reagan-National to Marco Polo Intl (Venice) via a 40-minute layover in Newark. Both legs are on United flights. Is 40 minutes too tight to make this connection? I've been told that both the arrival and departure at EWR is in Terminal C. Bags will be checked through from DCA to VCE. (I was also told that if there is bad weather on the day of the flight, I can call United and they will put me on an earlier departure from DCA. Is this actually done?) Thanks very much.

     

    Yes, if they issue what's called a "waiver" you can make changes to your reservation for free. If your flight from DCA does arrive in Terminal C you have enough time. However, if it arrives in A that will be very difficult. United runs a shuttle inside security from A to C.

     

    Actually, I called United and they did the classy thing and booked me on an earlier flight out DCA. Now I have a three-hour layover, which is better. I wasn't going to take a chance -- I'd much rather spend that night in Venice and not Newark. Thanks.

     

  • Does business/first help transit by much

    Hi Thanks for the advice so far, it looks like I will be traveling United business/first, international in domestic out, both terminal C. I normally fly economy so does traveling business first speed up the processing time. Example, immigration and then security other than the advantage of getting off the aircraft first. I suppose the difficult question, if it does make a difference by how much.

     

    Immigration, not really. Yes, security it helps quite a bit.

    I'm planning to fly from YYZ to HKG and either get a connecting flight at EWR or ORD .For getting connection at EWR, I will fly from YYZ to EWR by Air Canada and there I will have about 3 hours layover time, is it enough time for me to getting another UA flight to HK ? Do I need to go through custom or security check or re-check my luggage ? And will I need to take any shuttle bus to get the connecting flight at another terminal ? Finally, How about HKG-EWR-YYZ , is it the same way to do just reverse ? thanks for giving me any help.

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. In Newark you just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You have enough time. On the return in Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security.

     

    thank you very much :)

    I'm flying With my family from Santo Domingo -SDQ to San Diego - SAN, in a UNITED fly, with an Stop of 1 hour 20 min in EWR, Is it enough time to make immigration, customs, recheck lodge and take next fly?

     

    No, that is below the minimum International to domestic connection time at Newark. I recommend at least 2 hours.

    I am flying from Punta Cana (PUJ) to EWR, then connecting to fly to Halifax (YYZ) with 3 hours for layover. When I arrive in the US will I need to go through customs or do I just find my connecting gate because I am not staying in the US? Will I need to collect my luggage? I am flying United Airlines for both flights. Also, will I need to change terminals?

     

    Yes, in Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You may arrive in Terminal B or C and you will likely depart from Terminal A, so you will likely have to change terminals using the AirTrain in between re-checking your bag at the re-check desk and going through security. You have enough time.

    Just wondering. I am flying from YHZ (Halifax Canada) via EWR onward to Barcelona, Spain. We have a short 1 hour 45 minute connection when we land in EWR. Do I have to clear US customs in order to catch my flight onward to Barcelona? Thanks in advance

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Halifax. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. you will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals.

     

  • 2hr 54min connection

    Dear all. Our family of 5 people is going to travel from PDX to Milan. To save some money we consider to buy two separate tickets. I have found flight PDX-EWR-YYZ-MXP question is - will we make in 2hr 54min from terminal C to A, when we need to pass the customs check in our bags and then go to terminal A

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. What airlines are you flying and where is the ticket "broken" into two separate tickets?

    i have 1 h 10min connection time. it's that enough? thxs

     

    Yes, that is barely enough time. You will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. You have to take the shuttle bus inside security between terminals to have a chance of making this. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa.

    Boeing 757-200 landing at terminal C, do they disembark from the front only or front and back. this is about getting the best position to get off quickly. As near the front exit United charge more for extra leg room

     

    It will disembark from the front.

     

  • 1hr 38min enough to get through customs and change terminals?

    I am flying in from Iceland on a Friday at 7pm and need to catch a domestic flight departing at 8:38pm. I'll have to go through customs, get from Terminal B to Terminal C, check in, and go through security again. Is 1.5 hours enough time? I'll only have a carry-on bag and I am a US citizen.

     

    With carry-ons only this is barely possible if you are already checked in for your domestic flight on United.

    Arriving from London Heathrow at 13:10 on United UA 28 and connecting to United 4909 to Richmond departing at 14:59, says change of terminal? Would this be doable or too much of a rush? Thank you for any help

     

    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, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Forced flight change now very short transit time

    We are flying United form Belfast to Orlando with a change in Newark. We originally had a 3-hour layover so plenty of time to get the connecting flight. I have just had an email from united saying the Newark to Orland flight has been changed, the original flight is now not showing on any booking sites. The new flight is due to take off 1 h 35m after the schedule arrival of the Belfast flight it is a Friday arrival 1:35pm departure 3:10pm. Has anyone done this sort of transit time at Newark at that time of day, is it doable, the later flight would be a 5h 45m layover. My Daughter has just said as we are flying with United right through and they have changed it, go for it. If you don't make it, they have to get you on the next flight. The problem I see with that is we have 5 travelling, would they have room on the later flight and we then have a 5h 45m wait anyway.

     

    Yes, you are correct, while 95 minutes is possible it's very difficult and you are right that it's definitely possible there would not be 5 seats available on the later flight. It's your call, There's definitely a chance your flight from Belfast could be early and then the connection you have wouldn't be difficult.

     

    It looks like both the inbound flight and the outbound flights are terminal C, so no terminal change if that helps. The last time I used united I had to change terminals for the domestic flight (San Diego)
