    We are flying from TLV to EWR and then to CLT. We have 1hr 52 min between flights from EWR to CLT. Will that be enough time to go through customs and get on the next flight? Will we have to go back through security or our we OK since we are still in the terminal? i believe we will be coming in to terminal C and leaving terminal A. Thanks so much for any advice/assistance...


    You will arrive in Terminal C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the re-check desk. At that point you will be outside security. If your flight leaves from Terminal A, you can take the AirTrain there and then go through security.

    Hi, I have a flight Birmingham (UK) to Newark with United Airlines that lands at 12:05. I have then got a flight from Newark to Dallas at 15:15 with American Airlines. Will I have enough time to collect my bags and check in for the second flight? Which terminals will I land/take-off from? Thanks


    That is plenty of time. 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 immediately after. Then check the monitors or united.com as your flight to Dallas could leave from Terminal A or C. Take the AirTrain if you need to change terminals, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Transferring at EWR

    my daughter is travelling alone for the first time on 16th June travelling on United from London LHR to Newark EWR and then on to Portland, Maine PWM. Will she need to claim and re-check in her baggage?


    Yes, in Newark she will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk. Then she needs to see where her PWM flight will depart. It could depart from Terminal A or C. She then needs to take the AirTrain to her departure terminal *unless both flights are in C) and go through security and to her departure gate.


    thanks so much for your helpful advice


    Is your daughter by any chance flying this morning (the 16th) on the 10:35 flight? My 15 year old daughter is also on that flight and continuing on to Philadelphia. Do you think they could try to connect and go through this together? you can contact me directly at jodie.asaraf@ymca.org.il if you want to try to do this.


    Sorry Jodie not to have seen your message before now. My daughter is travelling on the previous flight so won't be able to help. Hope it all goes smoothly.

I am arriving EWR at terminal B and departing to Orlando from terminal C. Do I need collect my bags to go through customs in Newark and at which terminal. After this is done am I able to leave the airport to go into the city and then return to check in and go through security for my orlando flight at terminal C? Do I need transit visa to leave the airport? how long before the departure of flight I need to report for check-in for my orlando flight (united airlines) terminal C.


    I answered this the other time you posted it.

    Hi My wife and son are travelling from Mumbai to Columbus OH via EWR terminal. They have United AL tickets. Do they need to go through Custom and immigration by collecting baggage. Please let me know process and how much time is ok to take second flight from EWR to Coloumbus OH


    Yes, in Newark they will go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the transfer desk, and then go to the departure level and through security. 90 minutes is the bare minimum for this but I recommend at least 2 hours.


  • Getting Lost.
    Jun 9, 2015
    I travelled from Birmingham England, on arrival for a connection flight to Houston, I got completely lost, I had no idea where to go, a very nice air steward who was on the Houston flight was extremely helpful. as by now I was near to tears, he arranged a wheelchair with someone to take me through to the boarding gate, I then had the same problem at Houston......I leave for the Uk on 21st June, I am dreading getting lost again, I am 75 years old and traveling alone, can I get help to be taken to the boarding area's ? Thank you for listening to me.


    If you would like to request wheelchair service again you can call United. However your connection on the way back to England will be much more simple as all you will have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.


  • Transfer Time

    Arriving EWR from Glasgow United 162 ETA 1145. Now rescheduled to Chicago ORD on United 755 ETD 1355. As we have to clear Customs and Immigration into the USA, retrieve and recheck bags and possibly change terminals, is the theoretical 1 hour 50 minutes connect time realistically sufficient ?


    Yes, 2 hrs 10 minutes is still possible. Even if you miss your connection, United has hourly flights from Newark to ORD.


    Thank You.

    Planning on flying United from SFO -> EWR -> YOW (Ottawa), arriving at 8AM to EWR and departing at 4PM, would our bags have to be collected and rechecked for the second leg? Was hoping to make a day trip in NYC. Thanks!


    No, you will not have to collect your bags in Newark. Yes, you can head into the city.


  • Vancouver-Newark-Dublin
    Jun 7, 2015
    I'll be flying from Vancouver to Dublin via Newark. I have a 1 hour 48 min layover in Newark. Will this be enough to make my connection? And will I have to check my bags in again or will they be checked in for the entire journey? Both flights are with United.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you will have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. You have plenty of time.


  • Baggage assistance with terminal change
    Jun 9, 2015
    My senior citizen parents are flying from Boston to Newark on JetBlue, then transfering to El Al to fly to Tel Aviv. The two flights are on different tickets, so they will have to claim their bags and bring them to the international terminal. They have plenty of time between flights, but they will have a lot of baggage, and will have difficulty bringing everything from the baggage claim to the AirTrain and then from the AirTrain to the international ticket counter. How can they arrange for assistance with this?


    There is no way they can arrange for it. They can either try to find a skycap or they can pack a foldable luggage cart in their luggage.


    How about this: They rent a luggage cart at the domestic terminal and bring it on the AirTrain (is that allowed)? If not allowed, could they bring it to the AirTrain stop and then just bring the bags 3 feet into the train? Then, when they get off the train, one of them could sit with the bags while the other one goes to the terminal and rents a luggage cart, and brings it back to the AirTrain station, loads the bags, and brings them to the ticket counter. Would something like that work?


    You aren't allowed to bring rental carts on the airtrain.


    Not even to the platform? If so, then what else can they do? Maybe take a taxi from one terminal to the other?

    Hi! I have a flight from MSP coming into Newark on 6-17 at 6:27 pm. My connecting flight to OSL leaves at 8:05pm. I am flying United and I booked my tickets together. Will there be enough time to get through security, customs, etc? Additionally, will I have enough time to get my luggage checked an hour before take off like United requires?


    You do not go through Customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on United all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal C. You may arrive in Terminal A or C. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in A and C. You should have plenty of time if your flight from MSP is on-time.


    Thank you for the speedy reply!


  • Leaving the U.S. trough EWR
    Jun 3, 2015
    Hey guys, I fly back to Germany and my flights are West Palm Beach with UA to EWR (arrival terminal C) EWR with Lufthansa to FRA (leaving EWR at terminal B) Do I have to worry about my checked in luggage? It should be fine in theory... And now long does it take me to get from C to B? And is there something interesting on that way? I got 5hour time... Is there a second TSA check? Thank you! David


    No, you will not have to do anything with your luggage in Newark on your way back to Germany. To get to Terminal B you can either take a shuttle bus inside security or take the AirTrain outside security, which requires you go through TSA again.


    Thanks a lot!


  • Immigration in Newark or LA
    Jun 1, 2015
    Hi! I will be arriving in Newark from Mumabi on UA49 in terminal C. I have a connecting flight from terminal C to Los Angeles. The layover is 1h 20 mins. Will I have to go through immigration in Newark and check-in my baggage again? If so, is 1h 20 mins enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, 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 then go through security and to your departure gate. 1 hr 20 mins is 10 minutes shorter than the recommended time. It's possible, especially if your flight from Mumbai is early, however, even if you miss your connection there are many flights from EWR to LAX that you can be rebooked on.


  • Terminal c to terminal b

    We are arriving at Newark from Florida to Terminal C. We are heading to Oslo on SAS from termainal B. Is there a shuttle or bus that will keep us inside the security area.?


    There is a bus inside security and I believe it does service the B gates that SAS uses.


  • Paris - Newark - Toronto connection
    Jun 1, 2015
    I'm traveling from Paris and have a 9 hour connection in Newark before heading to Toronto. I assume I will have to collect my bags to take through customs in Newark. After this is done am I able to leave the airport to go into the city and then return to check in and go through security for my Toronto flight? I'd rather not spend 9 hours at the airport.


    Yes, once toy clear customs you are in the United States and free to go where you want.
