    I'm arriving EWR at 3:05 (IF on-time) on American, Terminal A. Next flight is SAS, Terminal B at 5:40. These are on separate reservations, but I am not checking baggage. Will I have to go through security again at EWR, and is there ample time even if there is some delay? Thank you so much for helping, I come from a long line of worriers!


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal B. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Thanks. What if we are 1/2 hour late. Is 2 hours enough time or should I book an earlier flight into Newark?


    If you are a half hour late that would probably still be enough time. More than that and I'd get nervous.


  • Connection time
    Sep 14, 2015
    I am flying from London to Toronto via Newark with United Airlines and Air Canda. My connection time is 1h and 30 mins, is this enough time?


    That is barely enough time assuming everything goes smoothly. In Chicago you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags, possibly change terminals, and go through security.

    9 of us are arriving from Edinburgh with United next July and travelling onto Memphis, is 2hours 15mins enough connection time to clear customs & immigration, collect our bags and recheck onto our Flight to MEM with Delta?


    Did you purchase your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations. If it's two separate ones I think it will be difficult for you to get to the Delta check-in desk in time. Also, there's a good chance that by next July, Delta will have cut the Memphis-Newark route.


    In fact it appears that Delta has already cut the Memphis-Newark route. Please double check your reservation.


    Thanks ZAP, its going to be 2 separate tickets, travelling via ATL . I will look again and see if I can find something with a longer connection time :)


    Yes, on two separate tickets I recommend at least 3 hours.


  • where is the re-check desk located?
    Sep 11, 2015
    My toddler son and I are flying from Berlin to Portland via Newark all through United Airlines: I know that I have to go through US Immigration, claim my bags, go through US Customs, re-check my bags at the re-check desk. Where is this re-check desk located? My husband meets us at Newark to fly with us together to Portland. Can I meet up with him before re-checking the bags? And where could I meet him earliest during the whole process?


    The re-check desk is located right after customs, it's hard to miss. Usually the area where the re-check desk is is a restricted area. You could meet him either on the arrivals level of Terminal B (where he will probably arrive) near where the international arrivals come out or on the Departure level of Terminal C, where you will have to go through security before your flight to Portland. I'm assuming you're talking about Portland, Oregon. Flights to Portland, Maine would probably use Terminal A.


  • ATL-EWR-BOM Connections and Immigration
    Sep 11, 2015
    I am flying from Atlanta - Newark - Mumbai (ATL-EWR-BOM) via United Airlines(Both flights).My Arrival will be at Terminal C at Newark and International departure will be from same terminal (terminal C).My US Immigration will be done in Atlanta or Newark? Do I need to claim the baggage in Newark and re-check-in at Newark airport? Please advice. thanks


    There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Mumbai, Newark, Boston transit time needed to get thru immigration etc
    Sep 9, 2015
    My flight from Mumbai on United arrives in EWR at 7:30am and my connecting flight to Boston on United departs at 8:40. Is that adequate to pass thru immigration and recheck my bags? Will my gates be nearby?


    No, I don't think 70 minutes will be enough time unless your flight from Mumbai arrives quite early. United has later flights to Boston that you will be rebooked on.


  • International to Domestic with United Airlines
    Sep 9, 2015
    i am flying from Edinburgh to Jacksonville via Newark all thorugh United Airlines / ExpressJet Airlines- do i need to collect bags and what terminals will be used, i assume terminal B on arrival?


    You will likely arrive in Terminal B, 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.


  • Between terminals A and C
    Sep 8, 2015
    I am flying in to EWR and will reach Terminal A. My mother is leaving from EWR on an international flight from Terminal C. Is there any way I can be with her at Terminal C until she boards the plane? Is there a way to go from Terminal A to C without going through security?


    Yes, United runs a shuttle bus from A to C inside security.


    However, note that it only operates from the satellite of A that United Express uses. So if you aren't flying United Express you won't be able to use it and won't be able to visit the secure-side of C.


  • Terminal A to C
    Sep 7, 2015
    I am flying from YVR to Manchester and have a connection in Newark. I have a 2hr 25m layover and have to go from Terminal A to terminal C in that time, is that possible? Also, I am flying in on Air Canada and taking the United flight out of Newark, will I have to get my bags and recheck them? or will my bags be checked through to manchester since both airlines are members of star alliance?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You just have to take the AirTrain from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security.


  • Terminal C to B
    Sep 11, 2015
    Hello, my arrival gate is in Terminal C, and only 1h45min later I have a connection flight in Terminal B to San José, Costa Rica. Will I have enough time and do I have to claim my bags? Where do I have to check in my bags later, in Terminal B or C? Both flights are with United Airlines..


    There are no United departures from Terminal B. Where are you coming from into Newark?


    Oh i'm sorry, I arrive at Terminal B (from Frankfurt) and my connection flight is in Terminal C..


    It's possible to make that connection but everything has to go perfectly. 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, go through security and to your departure gate.


    My flight from Delhi to Newark Liberty intl (EWR) 1 hour 45 minutes layover for Boston flight on same terminal. is the time adequate to go through US customs/immigration to catch Boston flight? If fail what shall I do. I am travelling for the first time to US


  • Domestic to International in 45 min?
    Sep 7, 2015
    Am flying SFO to Lisbon with a 45-min layover at EWR. What is the process & can I, a single business class passenger, make it in that amount of time? Thanks!


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. If your flight from SFO is on-time you have enough time.


    Thank You! I was concerned that I might need to change terminals and recheck my bag. Thanks again


    Actually, I should correct myself, those instructions are only correct if both flights are on United. If your flight to LIS is on TAP then you will have to go to Terminal B.


    As luck would have it, I'm United all the way. However, I appreciate your attention to correctness.


  • Transfer from terminal B to C
    Sep 3, 2015
    I am travelling from Heathrow to Newark arriving at terminal B, then on to Orlando from terminal C. We have only a 1hr30min layover. Assuming my first flight is on time, can this be done? Concerned!


    It's barely possible. Luckily United probably has a later flight to Orlando that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.


  • Domestic to international transfer

    We are flying from Atlanta to EWR on Delta. Four hours later we fly from EWR to Florence on Swiss Air. Once we collected our checked luggage from Delta, what are our options to get to Swiss Air check-in at the international terminal with our luggage? A member in our party is a senior citizen with good mobility. The easier the better.


    both of your flights are in Terminal B. All you have to do is go up to the Departure level of Terminal B after claiming your bags from Delta and check your bags with Swiss, get your boarding passes, and go through security.


  • Columbus OH to Newark then to London UK, 40 min layover
    Aug 31, 2015
    Hi, our first flight has just been cancelled and we have to get our plane in Newark otherwise we will arrive in London to late for a family event! The only available flight that United airlines proposes will give me (I'm travelling alone with 2 toddlers) 40 minutes overlay. Both flights are with United airlines, so baggages should go straight to UK but I am very stressed about the time between the flights (specially with 2 toddlers). Does any one have had this experience before? Thansk


    It's possible. But difficult if your flight from Columbus arrives in Terminal A as that means you will have to take the shuttle to Terminal C where you will depart.

    Hello, I'm flying from Montreal into Newark on United and then flying on through United to Orlando. Our layover is only 1hr 7min. My question is do I have to go through baggage claim and pick my bags up and recheck them? Is this connection even possible since we have to switch terminals and go through security again?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. You will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C, but United operates a shuttle bus inside security between A and C. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Thanks so much for the info! Do I need to go get my baggage or just go straight to the other plane?


    You just have to go to your other plane.
