  • Enough time?
    Jun 5, 2016
    I'm landing at Newark at 4:50pm in Terminal A and then need to catch International Flight in Terminal C that takes off at 5:50pm. First flight is Southwest, International Flight is United. No checked bags, will be carry on. Do I have enough time?


    No, that's not enough time as you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security.


    Why would this person not be able to use the United shuttle between Terminals A and C?


    Because the United shuttle goes to a different satellite of Terminal A than the one that Southwest uses and the satellites aren't connected inside security.


  • Layover time
    May 30, 2016
    We will be arriving in Terminal B on SAS from Copenhagen.\ and connecting to Cincinnati, OH with United Express in Terminal A. The layover time is 2 hr 25 min. Considering that I need to get my checked-in luggage, immigration and customs would that be enough time?


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Incorrect directions for Non TSA Precheck at C Terminal
    May 26, 2016
    Check which line you need to be in they are sending people to the wrong lines which will really mess up your timing to get through, they will send you back to the end of the other line if you go to the wrond one


  • connection timing
    May 31, 2016
    Hi, My Flight from Europe to is planed to arrive terminal B at 5:40 am (early morning). I have 2 options for a connection flight with United to SFO (not on the same airline) from terminal C: 8am or 9am (2:20 h -3:20 h layover). Do you think that I'll have enough time to go through with my family: immigration checking (not US citizenship), collect bags, switch terminals and then check-in to 'United' flight in 2:20 h? or should I need the extra hour? Thanks


    I would book the longer connection


    Thanks. Will do.


  • Arrival terminal B domestic flight from terminal C
    May 31, 2016
    We are arriving with SAS from Oslo at 13:15 with departure from terminal C at 15:05 (United Airlines) to Orlando (MCO). It this enough time? Do we need to pick up our luggage and check in? How do we come from terminal B to C? Thanks


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then re-check it at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. This is a very difficult connection, but is not impossible.


    We have the same route in July and Sas said that it normally should be no problem........there is no possibility to quick check in?


  • Transfer
    May 30, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight from Kansas City to EWR (United airlines) arriving on terminal C, and a connecting flight to Amsterdam (Delta) departing from terminal B. Final destination Mumai. 1. Do I need to claim my check in bags at EWR and recheck them? 2. What are the options for terminal transfers? Thanks. Appreciate your help.


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags in Newark and re-check them. The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security.


  • 1h56m

    Hi -- I will be arriving to EWR from DEN at 3:34pm on United with a connecting international flight to FCO (also United/EWR) at 5:30pm. Is 1hr56m enough time to get my connection? Will I have to go through security at EWR?


    Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to go through security in EWR. Just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.

    I arrive from by Business Class New Orleans by United domestic to terminal C Newark and have only 1 hour to connect to an United flight Business Class in terminal C to Mumbai.Will I be able to do security immigration and baggage checks and make it?


    There is no additional security you have to go through in Newark and 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. You have enough time.


  • Changing planes but not Terminals. 46 min doable??
    May 23, 2016
    Flying into Terminal C - changing planes but not Terminals. Leaving Terminal C on another flight. Is 46 min enough for this?


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • how to go from TB to TC sithin the secure zone
    May 23, 2016
    Can I go from Arrival terminal B to my connecting flight leaving from terminal C while sataying in the secure zone?


    What airline are you flying into B? Where are you flying into Newark from?


  • Connection time
    May 23, 2016
    Hi -- I am traveling with my infant and I have a domestic flight with United from PHX which gets into EWR at 6:29PM on a Tuesday evening and I need to transfer onto an international flight to Mumbai, which leaves EWR at 8:25PM. The international flight is also with United. So, I would have 1hr 45 mins for the connection. Is that a sufficient time for the connection? Not sure about the terminal.. Please guide adapt, Thanks!


    That is enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Changing planes
    May 27, 2016
    We are flying from MSP to EWR on the 16th of June. We will arrive at 5:55pm and leave for Oslo at 8:15. Both flights are United. Will we have to go through security? Is 3 hours enough time? On the way home, we arrive at EWR at 11:50 am and leave at 1:59 pm. Again both flights are United. Will we need to go through security? Will we need to go through customs?


    I'm particularly concerned about the return flight. I don't think an hour will be enough time? What do you think?


    On the way to Oslo you have plenty of time. On the return it is very difficult as you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.


    So - Just to clarify and make sure I understand correctly, when we get to Newark going out of country - there is no customs or immigration line to go through? Will we be going through that at MSP when we leave?


    When you say "claim" your bags are you assuming we are checking bags? Would this be the same if we only have carry on? I'm assuming we would have our carry on's checked at US immigration and Customs and then security and then on to our departure gate?


  • connection time

    We are flying AA to EWR from Charlotte on June 8th. We have to connect to SAS to Copenhagen. All on one reservation. We arrive Terminal A and fly from Terminal B. We have 2 hours. Assume luggage will go straight to Copenhagen. Can we take the United shuttle and not go through security. Is 2 hours long enough to go through security and make the connection.


    The United shuttle does not go to the same satellite of concourse A where your AA flight arrives, so you will have to take the AirTrain and go through security. You should have just enough time.


  • Worried about connection times
    Jun 6, 2016
    Hi I'm looking to book flights to Lex Kentucky from Edinburgh but it includes a change at Newark for the flight to Lex. With United Airlines the connection time is only 1hr 30mins.....is this at all achievable? I assume we would not need to collect bags and check in again at Newark if the connecting flight is also run by United?? Flight numbers are UA37 and then UA4457. Thanks


    No, that is not realistic. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, change terminals, and go through security, which in and of itself takes over an hour.


    Thanks for the prompt reply


    Hi. There is another flight available that lands in Newark from Glasgow and the next flight to Lexington leaves 2hrs and 10mins later.....is this at all possible? What would the minimum time be for a connecting flight considering we would need to go through imigration etc?


    We are flying from Vegas to Newark arriving at 19:17 and our connecting flight to Edinburgh leaves at 20:10. Both flights are United airlines and the travel agent assured us that this is doable. Do we need to recheck our bags and go through security again or do we just head straight from one plane to the other?


  • Terminals
    May 26, 2016
    We will be arriving from DAY on flight UA4048 and departing for SJU on flight UA1523 on June 9, 2016. What will be the terminals and will we have to go thru security again?


    You will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. United operates a shuttle inside security between them.


    Thanks for this info. I only have 70 minutes between my arrival at Terminal C (United Airlines) and my departure in Terminal A. I don't want to mess it up. Is there anything I need to watch out for that I might accidently screw up not having to go through security again, or is it obvious how to get on the Shuttle Bus between the terminals and stay inside security?
