  • Olso to Newark to St. John's Canada
    Jul 12, 2013
    Hi I am arriving with united in newark and connecting with united to go to St. John's. will I have to go through customs and get my luggage? Also, what thermal will I arrive and then depart from?


    Yes, you will have to go through US immigration and claim your luggage. You will likely arrive and depart in Terminal C, but if you arrive in B, you can take the AirTrain between terminals, since you will already be outside security.


    Thanks for replying. If I land in B do I take my luggage to C or is there a drop off point in B? Where would I drop it off in C?


    You can drop it right after you exit customs in B.


  • Transfer between Terminal A and B
    Jul 1, 2013
    Hi! I have arriving on a UA flight from Buffalo landing in Terminal A and connecting to a code share SAS flight to Oslo in Terminal B. We have a connection time (pending no "circling" delays of 1 hour and 25 minutes. What is the easiest and quickest way of getting to terminal B from A? Is it to leave the "secure zone" and take the air train or is there a shuttle bus that is faster? For information, this is all one ticket so our luggage will be checked through to Oslo from Buffalo.


    United runs a shuttle on the secure side between A and B - that is probably the fastest route. http://www.united.com/web/en-us/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx?SID=798D7DF2A4654EC9A1A48DA22763CC7C


  • Connection between Terminals A and B
    Jul 1, 2013
    Hi! I will be traveling from Buffulo to Newark on UA coming into Terminal A and then onwards to Oslo on a code share SAS flight that leaves from Terminal B. What is the easiest way to get to our gate? Is it to leave the "secure" zone and take the air train or is there a shuttle bus that is easier?


    On arrival at EWR, take the AirTrain serving pre-security areas on Gate Level of all terminals - however, you need to go through security check b efore proceeding to your gate. The Gate Level leads to three gate areas: 1. Gate Area B1 (gates B40-47); 2. Gate Area B2 (gates B51-57 used by British Airways); and 3. Gate Area B3 (gates B60 to B68).


  • Arrive terminal of UA
    Jun 26, 2013
    Which terminal is the UA116 arrived at (from Hong Kong to Newark) in EWR?


    It usually arrives in B.


  • where do I go? Is it enough time?
    Jun 23, 2013
    I arrive at Newark from Spain at 2:15PM in terminal B and I have a connecting flight in Terminal C at 4PM, both with United. I will have to go through customs and all that and switch terminals and go through security again, is that enough time? I also do not know where the airtrain is located, can anyone tell me what it is near or how to get there from the gates in Terminal B? Finally, if I do miss my flight, what will happen? I'm very worried I'm going to miss my flight!


    It should be enough time. The Airtrain is fairly obvious and operates on the non-secure side. I you miss your connection you will be rebooked on a later flight to your destination, if there is one. If so you will be rebooked the next day.


  • Where is the Airtrain
    Jun 23, 2013
    Hello, I will be arriving at Terminal B and need to get to Terminal C without much time. Can you tell me what gate number the airtrain is near to or anything like that? From the gate that I arrive at, will I need to go up or down any escalators or anything to get on the airtrain? Thank you!


    The Airtrain does not operate on the secure side, so it is not near "gates". However, United does operate a secure side shuttle from the base of the B3 satellite to near C71. http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx


    do you think it would be faster to take the shuttle than the airtrain?


    If your arrival in Terminal B is domestic, the shuttle. If your arrival is international and you'll have to go through security again anyway, take the AirTrain.


  • TEL AVIV TO SAN ANTONIO (via Newark and Houston)
    Jun 23, 2013
    I am flying into Newark from Tel Aviv and as of now only have a 43 minute layover with United. Both flights are in terminal C, but I know I will have to go through immigration, customs, and security. I originally had a longer layover but the flight was cancelled and United booked this one in its place. I called to inquire about the short layover and the United representative said that it was considered a valid layover since it is in the same terminal. Is this reasonable? Will I be able to make my flight to Houston? If I miss my flight the next one will put me in Houston past the departure time for my flight to San Antonio, the last flight of the day to my final destination. I asked if there were other connections from Newark to San Antonio and the representative answered that Houston was the only option. Suggestions?


    No, it's not enough time. Since there was an involuntary schedule change you can be rebooked without a change fee. Call back and ask for that. However, she is right in that there are no other options with that get you into SAT that day. Your only option would be to request a change to the overnight TLV-EWR flight the previous night, which gets into EWR at about 5 AM, then take the EWR-SAT Nonstop which leaves at about 4 PM. I would suggest either doing this, going with the original itinerary they rebooked you on and hope the flight is early and you make the connection, with the knowledge you'll end up stuck in Newark or Houston. Or just ask to be rebooked on the later Newark-Houston flight and book a hotel room in Houston and fly to San Antonio the next morning. You'll be tired anyway. They're telling you it's a valid connection because after the schedule change, they don't really have anything better to offer.


    I looked at United flights from TLV to SAT and saw that there is a connection from Newark to San Antonio via Cleveland.The layover would be an hour and 18 mins. in Newark. Is that doable?


    It's not much better, but it's better. You could ask for that.


  • Help with flight connection times please!
    Jun 12, 2013
    I am arriving to Newark terminal B from Heathrow and have a 1 hour 40 minute lay over time to go through immigration and to terminal C for connecting flight to San Jose. Is this possible? any tips or help very welcome, first time through US in transit and very worried about connection time.


    That will be pretty tough. Is your LHR flight on United, BA, or Virgin? If not United, were your tickets bought on one reservation or two? If so BA or Virgin Atlantic (whoever you are flying from Heathrow) will probably be able to check your bags through to United, however you will still have to claim them in immigration and re-check them once you get through (same process if your first flight is on United). Take the Airtrain from TB to TC.


    oh ! im flying with United from LHR, I contacted the airline today as I was worried and they claim its "plenty of time mam" stating its a 1 hr 25 minute connection! I didn't realise our bags would not be transferred onto our onward flight either! I assumed as with all other flights I have ever taken (not via US!) that they would be sent on to our destination. so can anyone tell me a plane door to plane door run through of what to expect, the tickets were bought as one ticket from United, they operate both the LHR - Newark and Newark onwards to SJO. Thanks in advance!


    You will get off the plane and be funneled to Immigration. You will then go through immigration, then claim your bags, then walk through customs, then re-check the bags with United at the re-check counter. If you arrive in Terminal B you will then go up to the Airtrain, then take the Airtrain to Terminal C then go through security. If you arrive in Terminal C you will go upstairs and go through security and then go to your gate. Immigration can take around an hour these days and security can take 20-30 minutes, so you will definitely have to hurry.


    On arrival at EWR you go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag where indicated. Then board the Airtrain (running on average every 7 mins), which will take you to Terminal C, where you arrive in the pre-security area of the gate level and need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting flight at Terminal C whose Gate level leads to three gate areas: 1. Gate Area C1, arranged in a Y-shape, with gates C70-99; 2. Gate Area C2 (gates C101-C115); and 3. Gate Area C3 (gates C120-139). You should be able to make your flight on time. Terminal C is the exclusive United & United Express airline terminal.


  • Transfer Shuttle Bus Between TB & TC
    Jun 11, 2013
    I need to transfer between TB & TC and wish to use the transfer shuttle bus to avoid going through security again. Where is the shuttle bus located in TB? When does it operate?


    The shuttle stop in Terminal B is near the B3 satellite - http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx


  • 2 hrs arrive TA and depart TC?
    Jun 9, 2013
    Is it realistic to arrive on a domestic flight (with 30% lateness record) at Terminal A and catch an int'l flight (to Canada) in Terminal C - in a 2 hour window???


    No problem - on arrival at TA take the shuttle bus near gate A28 to TC, arriving near gate C71.


  • Terminal C to Terminal A Shuttle

    How frequent does the shuttle from Terminal C gate 71 to Terminal A run? Is it every few minutes?

    I will be flying into Newark from Oslo Norway with United & will be connecting onward to Cleveland, again with United. Arrival TC & Departure TC. 1 hour 25 minutes 'layover'. Is this enough enough time?


    It depends, it'll be awfully tight with having to go through immigration. Luckily United has a lot of flights from Newark to Cleveland.


  • Change of Terminal at Newark Airport.
    Jun 6, 2013
    I will be flying from Toronto to Mumbai. My flight goes from Toronto to Newark at terminal A operated by Air Canada. then i have connecting flight From Newark Terminal B to Mumbai operated by Air India. I have duration of 6 hours between two flight. My Question is does i will be require to have USA visa to change terminal from A to B to take another international flight? Does i need to go through all security check procedure at Newark just to catch another flight from different terminal??? Does my luggage will be transferred by Airlines or i have to take it with me and go through all security check?? What is the best way to travels from Terminal A to Terminal B.???


    Unless your citizenship is of a country where you don't need a visa to visit the United States, you will need a transit visa. Yes, going between A and B there will be security. If your tickets were bought on one reservation then Air Canada should be able to check your bags through and transfer them for you but if not you will have to do it yourself. The only way to get between terminals A and B is the AirTrain, which runs outside security.


  • Newark to Raleigh Durham
    May 29, 2013
    I will be arriving Newark on Aug 8th at 5:10am by United AIrlines at Termical C. I have a connecting flight to Raleigh-Durham at 7am on the same day again operated by United Airlines from Terminal A. Will 2 hrs of connecting time be sufficient for all my immigration procedures? Do I need to recheck my luggage even if my connectiing flight is from the same airlines? How long does it take for travelling from Terminal C to Terminal A? Are they well connected? What if I miss my flight, will United Airlines take care of it?


    At EWR, international flights by United are in Terminal C, while some domestic UA flights are also in Terminal A. As an international arrival, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag where indicated. Your bags will then be transferred to your domestic connecting flight. Thereafter, hop on the Airtrain which makes its continuous loop to Terminal A, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. 2 hrs will suffice.


    Immigration shouldn't be very busy that early in the morning. You will have to claim your bag in immigration and re-check it with United when you exit customs. You can take the Airtrain from C to A or go back through security in C and take the shuttle to A (taking the airtrain is probably faster). Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next flight to your destination with available seats. United has 6 more flights after yours from Newark to RDU.


    A quick question: Can a guitar be carried as a cabin luggage?? or should it be checked in? If it is checked in, would it break during the journey??


    Here is United's policy on musical instruments: http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/baggage/fragile.aspx


  • AZ to Munich
    May 25, 2013
    arriving 5/28 at 6:34pm on United & transferring to Lufthansa with a 1 Hr. 41 min. transfer time. do we need to go through security again? Which transport vehicle should we use?


    At EWR may may arrive via United either at Terminals A or C and need to get to Lufthansa flight at Terminal B: On arrival, hop on the AirTrain (serving pre-security, non-sterile areas on the Gate Level of all terminals (taking a few minutes); however at Terminal B you need to go through security check first before proceeding to your gate. You have enough time.
