    Hi I"m am traveling from Orlando to Vancouver and I have a connection In the Newark airport. My connection is 3hrs. Is that enough time to connect?


    Yes, that is plenty of time.


  • layover Time

    I will take a flight (United Airline) from Toronto (YYZ) to Newark (EWR) and there is layover time of 2 hr 41min for the transfer flight (United Airline) to Tokyo (NRT). I would like to check if 2 hr 41 min would be enough. Thanks!


    Yes, that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal A, United runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal C where you will depart.


    Thanks for your reply! I just check my flight from Toronto to Newark. It is United Airline operated by Air Canada. The flight from Newark to Tokyo is All Nippon Airways operated by United Airline. Will that make a dlfference?


    Yes, that means you will arrive in Terminal A at a flight that isn't connected by a shuttle bus, so you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You still have enough time.


    So does that mean I'll have to claim my baggages and re-checks them? Or I only have to go though security again?


    You won't have to do anything with your bags, just go through security again.


  • change of flights from domestic to international on same terminal

    Hi I am flying to Delhi through EWR from Kansas City, MCI with Indian passport. I have the reservation on the same ticket and flight with United Airline. Do I have to claim my check-in baggage and clear security again?


    Yes, in Newark you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly take the airtrain to your departure terminal, then go through security.


    even if the same flight and terminal? Because I contacted to United airline and according to representative the traveler need not to collect the baggage.


    Singh is leaving the US. At EWR, you will just hang out and board your connecting flight. As you board the flight to DEL, UA boarding staff will confirm valid passport. If you are returning from Delhi via EWR, ZAPs comments are relevant.


    As such - from MCI to EWR to DEL, once you check your bag - you won't see it till DEL unless it's hand / carry-on luggage.


    Correct. I also think that at EWR, only I have to go to the next flight departure gate without any security check.


    Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you were coming From Delhi to Kansas city. On your way to Delhi you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark - just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Amsterdam to Newark
    Nov 22, 2016
    Hello, looking to book a ticket from Amsterdam > Newark > Los Angeles. Is 2 hrs 5 mins enough time to connect in Newark? I am a US citizen traveling hand luggage only. Any tips or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Layover - Domestic to International
    Nov 22, 2016
    I would be arriving in Terminal C at EWR on a United Flight ( Domestic arrival) and my connection to Frankfurt by Lufthansa is at Terminal C but International section. Is 1.5 hours layover good? Is security clearance needed again?


    There is no "International section" of Terminal C. If your flight is operated by Lufthansa it will depart from Terminal B and you have to take a shuttle there. If it is operated by United it will depart from Terminal C and you just have to walk there. You have enough time.


  • Vegas to Newark to Belfast
    Nov 21, 2016
    I'm flying from Las Vegas to Newark then to Belfast will I need to go through customs in Newark airport and will I have to collect my luggage in Newark and check it in again for final flight? I have 2 hours and I'm worried about time. Thanks


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Arriving in Newark from Panama at 2:30 pm (UA), and departing from Newark to Frankfurt (LH) at 6:00 pm (3h30 min connection). Do I need to clear immigration, collect bags and re-check with Lufthansa? Thanks


    Yes, 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 B if you arrived in C, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    UA 083 - Delhi -Newark arrives at 04:35 AM, I have next connecting flight UA 1989 for Atlanta at 06:30 AM. Total layover time is showing 1:55 mins. is it sufficient?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Delhi is on-time.

    Hi. Will be flying from Aruba to Nova Scotia and connecting through Newark, arriving at Terminal C and getting next flight at Terminal A. Two questions... will I have to collect and re-check my luggage coming and what is the best way to get from terminal to terminal. Thanks!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Aruba. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. United runs a shuttle from C to their gates in A that runs inside security - take that.


  • 3 Hour Layover
    Nov 16, 2016
    Will 3 hours and 10 minutes be enough time to make a connection on 1/20/17 on TAP coming from Lisbon and continuing on to SFO? I'll only have a carry on bag if that makes a difference but I'll need to go through customs. I had a bad experience trying to do something similar at JFK.


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Would I have enough time to clear customs, immigration and get to my next flight with a 2 hour layover on a Bon-Ewr-Bos flight? If no, will global entry make a difference?


    If it matters it will be united airlines


    Yes, that should be enough time. Global Entry never hurts.


  • short layover time
    Nov 14, 2016
    my flight to EWR is the earliest available.and there is only one flight out to PUJ. layover time is only 55 minutes. arrive at concourse A Depart C.136. Will the departure flight wait for us to take the bus from A to C if the arrival plane is on time?


    They will not wait for you. If you miss your connection you will get routed through Houston or on a flight the next day.


  • Customs at 4:30am
    Nov 14, 2016
    Flying into EWR at 4:35am on a Friday. Will be going through customs, switching airlines (From UA to Alaska Air). There are 2 options: 7:00am and 4:00pm. We would really like the 7:00am to work so we aren't stuck at the airport for 8 hours. Is 2.5 hours enough time to make it through customs to catch the 7:00am? (We will be one of the first off the plane when landing in EWR) What about if we have TSA Precheck/Global Re-entry?


    I think the 7 AM flight should be possible, especially with Global Entry.

    will 55 min. layover be enough to get from terminal A gate 7 to terminal C gate 136?


    There is no gate A7. What airlines are you flying and where are you flying from and to?


    South Bend, IN. So let's say Gate 10A to gate 136C. ..and lets' assume arrival plane is on time.


    United both legs. SBN to PUJ


    OK, then you have enough time. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from their gates in A to Terminal C - use that.


  • ! hour and 25 minutes layover
    Nov 9, 2016
    I have a flight from New Delhi to Toronto with connection in newark for only 1 hour and 25 minutes. Is this enough to take the next flight for toronto?


    Realistically, no, that is not enough time unless the flight from Delhi arrives quite early.
