    Wa arrive at Newark at 12h00 from Paris (Terminal B). We have an other plane at 14h35 (Termianl B). Do we have enought time?


    Where are you flying to from Newark? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question with the information you have included.


    We travel from Paris (CDG) to Newark airport with UNITED AIRLINES. The plane is intended to land at 12h00. We want to take an other plane at the same airport, the same Terminal but with an other compagny ( DELTA) : 14:35 NEWARK LIBERTY INTL (EWR) --> 16:28 INNEAPOLIS (MSP)


    That's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.


  • Mumbai to San Diego via Newark
    Jun 13, 2016
    I intend to travel from Mumbai to San Diego via Newark. Flights are UA49 and UA1593 with a connection time of 110 mins. Please advise 1) Will bags get checked in till San Diego from Mumbai 2) Where shall I undertake immigration - Newark or San Diego 3) Is the connection time sufficient


    In Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thanks a lot ZAP. For return, I have a 44 min connection between san diego arrival and Mumbai Departure - again through UA. Is it safe to book it?


    On the return? Yes, that would be possible - it obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from San Diego is delayed.


    44 minutes is a tight connection for international. I think that would be the first flight out of San Diego in the 6am hour, so its more likely to be on time, but if you miss the Mumbai flight, the next one isnt until the next day, and other carriers would be your only option. Besides, they will board that Mumbai flight at the time you are touching down, so if you have lots of carry on items, you could risk having to check your carry on if the flight is full. I would give yourself more time, before a 14 hour flight, you want to have time to use the restroom, walk around a bit, etc. Just my two cents.


  • Flight from SeaTac-EWR-BCN

    Hello, I'm flying from Seattle to Barcelona with a 1 hour connection in Newark, all via United. Will I have to go through customs again, even though the first leg is a domestic flight?


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.


  • Panama to Brussels
    Jun 13, 2016
    Hello, I will be traveling from Panama (PTY) to Brussels (BRU) via EWR. United 1022 and then United 999. It is my first time in this airport... in the Airline the told me I have to do migration then pick up baggage, pass customs and then "drop off" my baggage... Can somebody please explain to me exactly what I need to do??? I mean, should I "out" and go to United front desk and chek in again to next flight after pick up my baggage? Thanks for your help. I only have 2:30 hours (if my first fligth is on time).


    There is a desk right after you clear US Customs where you can drop off your bag, you don't have to go out to the United ticket counter, but you will have to go through security again to get to your gate for the flight to Brussels.


    Thanks a lot.

    I am arriving on United Arilines on July 5th @ 11.55am to catch a 14.30 flight to SFO. What is the route /procedure through EWR please? have i got enough time ?


    You will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and got hrough security. You should have just about enough time.


  • Transit from EWR to LGA Airport & Transit visa
    Jun 11, 2016
    Coming from Mumbai for Toronto via EWR and LGA airport. Do I need transit visa on EWR air port and do I have to collect my luggage to get plan at LGA for Toronto?


    If you are an Indian citizen you need a US transit visa whether you are changing airports or not. And yes, you have to claim your luggage to take it to LGA. You need at least 5 hours for this transfer. It will cost approximately $100 to take a taxi between the two airports.


  • 90 Minute Connection Time
    Jun 10, 2016
    I have an upcoming United flight Glasgow GLA --- EWR --- Syracuse SYR, with a 90 minute connection time. I believe I'm arriving to Terminal B, and need to connect out of Terminal C. Do I need to pass customs, collect luggage, then re-check luggage in Terminal B? Can I used the transfer shuttle? Thank you!


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal A or C (your flight to Syracuse could depart from either), then go through security and to your departure gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thanks ZAP! You're so helpful on this forum :)


  • Arrive C, depart from B 4pm, 6:55
    Jun 10, 2016
    We will be arriving at Newark(United Airlines) from Providence RI at terminal C at 4:00 pm. Our flight to Oslo (SAS airlines)departs from terminal B at 6:55 pm. What is the best way to travel from terminal C to B? Will we have to go through security between C and B? Will we have enough time?


    There is a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal C to the SAS gates in Terminal B. Even if you took the airtrain and went through security, you should have plenty of time.


    Thank you so much!


  • Lufthansa arrival (Terminal B) to American departure (Terminal A)
    Jun 10, 2016
    Arriving on Lufthansa to Terrminal B and connecting to an American flight out of Terminal A to MIA and then to S. America. Two separate tickets, need to check in again at Terminal A? Does American have a (re) check in counter at Terminal B at International arrivals? Bags might be only tagged to EWR since flying on 2 different tickets. If need to check in again what is the fastest way from terminal B international arrivals to the check in counter of American at Terminal A? Thank you


    Yes, you need to check in again in Terminal A. You cannot re-check your bags in Terminal B. You need to take the AirTrain to Terminal A.

    I am flying from Brazil do San Diego with a stopover in Newark. I will have an hour and a half for immigration, customs, etc. Will it be enough to do that?


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    How do I get from Terminal A to Terminal B; do I go back through Security at Intermational Terminal?


    You will not go to Terminal A and there is no "International Terminal". You will likely both arrive in Terminal C. You will be outside security when you clear customs and re-check your bags.


    Like I said before I will just have an hour and a half for connection to go through immigration, customs, etc, if I missed my flight to San Diego, am I going to be able to take the next flight without having to pay for the ticket again? (United Airlines). Thank you!

    Hi.. I have a flight that lands at 7:59 am and I have to catch a connecting flight in a different terminal that leaves at 8:45 am.. If I take the shuttle from termial A to Terminal C will I have enough time.. I only have a carry on and I'm flying with United.


    Also my flight that lands at 7:59 am is from GSP Airport and the one that leaves is to SNA Airport.


    Yes, if the first flight is on-time and you take the shuttle you should have JUST enough time.


    Do u have to go thru security? I have similar connection time and nervous


    Unless your coming from Terminal B you do but if you need to go to Terminal C from Terminal A, the shuttle is inside at the gates.

    Yes, that should be just about enough time.

    Hi, I will arrive to EWR terminal A by a domestic flight at 7:24 am. And need to transfer to another domestic flight at terminal C. The connection time is only about 1 and half hours, and I have two checked-in luggage. The flights are both operated by United. It seems that I can use the shuttle to skip the process of rsecurity check. However, do I have to claim the baggage and rechecked-in? And is the shuttle start to operate at 7:24am? Thx


    You don't have to do anything with your luggage. Just take the shuttle and you should have plenty of time.

    Hi -- My UA domestic flight from MKE into EWR has been delayed and I now will have 40min to make a connection to BDA. Is that enough time? Guessing Terminal A to C. Thanks.


    It's not impossible. But it's difficult.
