    I have a connection from Norfolk, to an overseas destination but don't know the gates. I have a little over an hour in between flights, is that enough time , or do I have to go through a security check again?


    If both flights are on United then you won't have to go through security. You will likely arrive in terminal A and depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle bus in between them inside security. If that's the case you have enough time.


  • Connecting flight from Ottawa, Canada to Miami
    May 4, 2016
    I am arriving at EWR from Ottawa, Canada and connecting to a flight to Miami all on United. I arrive in terminal A and need to get to C with a 40 minute layover assuming my Ottawa flight leaves on time. Do I have to go through passport control when I land or do I clear customs in Ottawa, Canada before arriving in the US? Can anyone confirm this and will I be able to catch my connecting flight within 40 minutes?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa. In Newark you have to take the United shuttle bus inside security to Terminal C. You barely have enough time if the flight from Ottawa is on-time.




  • International to international connection

    I am arriving at EWR from Canada and connecting to a flight to Germany. Two different terminals. I assume I have to go through passport control, pick up and then recheck my bags. Can anyone confirm?


    What airlines are you flying? Were your flights purchased on two separate itineraries or one? Where in Canada are you coming from? I can't answer your question without that information.


    Arriving on Air Canada from Vancouver, BC (YVR) and departing on Lufthansa (Air Canada code share) for Düsseldorf, Germany. All on the same itinerary.


    Then you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Newark is take the Airtrain to Terminal B and go through security. You don't have to do anything with your bags.


  • Connecting flight
    May 3, 2016
    Hi. I am travelling from India by united airlines and arriving Newark Liberty airport at 5.15 Am terminal C, my connecting flight to MSP by 6.35Am at same terminal. can I catch this flight after completing my immigration formalities? if not can I use the same ticket to next immediate available flight?


    This is well below the recommended International to domestic connection time in Newark. The bare minimum is 90 minutes and 2 hours is recommended. If you are purchasing two separate tickets then no, you can't just transfer a ticket to another flight. However, if this is purchased as one reservation and you miss your connection, you will be rebooked on the next available flight.


  • from b terminal to c
    May 2, 2016
    My wife arriving to EWR from Munich at 7:35 pm on May,2,2016 then she will travel to Ithaca at 8:59 pm same day... She has to pickup her bags also she has to babies.. how can the airport staff help her to catch her plan in certain time


    It's not the airport staff's job to help her and she doesn't have enough time for that connection assuming her first flight is international.


  • From A to C
    Apr 30, 2016
    I am coming in with Newark as my layover to Pittsburgh. I come in to terminal A and must leave through terminal C. What is the fastest way from one to another? Sooo afraid to be late!


    Where are you flying into Newark from? Most Newark-Pittsburgh flights leave from Terminal A, but if you do have to change terminals United runs a shuttle bus from Terminal A to Terminal C inside security.


  • travel time between gates at terminal c
    Apr 27, 2016
    I will be on a United flight landing at Gate 87 in Terminal C at 10:20 and departing on another United flight from gate 125 in Terminal C at 11:00am...do I have enough time to get between gate to make my connecting flight?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is possible.


  • meeting friends at a different terminal
    Apr 27, 2016
    I am flying into EWR terminal B at 4:39 pm. Friends of mine are landing at terminal A at 4:35 pm. Once we collect our bags, is there transportation between all the terminals? Also, once we meet up. What is the best way to get to Manhattan? Thanks for any help.


    Yes, the AirTrain connects all terminals outside security and also takes you to the New Jersey Transit train, which is the best way to Manhattan.


  • SFO > EWR > RIC Short Layover
    Apr 27, 2016
    I am arriving from SFO (likely in terminal C) on United at 6:00PM and leaving for RIC (likely from terminal A) at 6:59. I have heard that United has a ground shuttle inside security between those two terminals. Is this enough time? Also, how do I get on that shuttle and how often does it run?


    Yes, there is such a shuttle, it leaves from the base of the terminal near gate 71. you can make this if your flight from SFO arrives on-time. Here is the united map showing the shuttle: https://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx


    Thank you!


  • Two different reservations - baggage claim procedure?
    Apr 27, 2016
    Hello, I plan to fly into EWR from Vienna on AA Flight 6152, arriving at 7:40 p..m., and then take United flight 3405, departing at 9:25 p.m., to Syracuse. These would be two separate reservations. Is this possible, time-wise, and what procedure/distance would I have to go through to claim/re-check my baggage? Thanks!


    AA6152 is a British Airways flight from London to Newark. With checked baggage this connection is not possible. You would arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take your bags to your departure terminal on the airtrain (likely terminal A), then check your bags and go through security. You don't realistically have enough time to do all that.


    Thank you. I will choose a different flight with a single reservation.


  • luggage for transit flight
    Apr 26, 2016
    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
    Apr 24, 2016
    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
    Apr 21, 2016
    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.
