  • clearing security

    We're flying from Houston IAH to Newark , then on to Tel Aviv. How long should we need to connect through security


    If both flights are on United then you don't have to go through security in Newark - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.


  • BOS - EWR - YVR
    Jul 3, 2016
    Flying from BOS to YVR with a 1Hr connection at EWR. Connection is from 6:30am to 7:30am. All flights are with United. I will have a checked bag, but I'm assuming I won't have to clear customs at EWR as I will do that at YVR so my bag can be checked all the way through. Never been to EWR, would I have enough time for the connection? Thanks.


    Yes, 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.


  • Southwest to El AL Connection 2:05 Enough time?
    Jul 1, 2016
    I arrive in Newark on Southwest at 11:10 AM, and need to make a connection for a 1:15 El Al flight. I will have a checked bag. Is this reasonably doable? Am I asking for trouble?


    With a checked bag I think that will be extremely difficult, bordering on impossible. If there is an earlier Southwest flight I would change to it.


  • 30 min connection from pit to bos

    Flying to Boston from Pittsburgh with United. I have a 30 min connection, on a Friday morning. Is that enough to make it?


    If you have to change terminals that will be very difficult, even with the shuttle bus inside security. Luckily you are traveling in the morning and United has lots of flights from Newark to Boston. If both flights are in Terminal C I think you can make it as long as the flight from PIT is on-time.


  • Connecting from EWR to San Francisco
    Jun 29, 2016
    Travelling from Edinburgh to San Francisco on United. Arrive in EWR terminal B at 12.00 Connecting flight to San Francisco is 13.30 in Terminal C This gives us only I hour 30 mins. Is this enough time? Do we go through immigration at EWR or in San Francisco?


    In Newark you will 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 go through security. You realistically only have enough time if your flight from Edinburgh arrives early. However, United has frequent flights from EWR to SFO if you need to be rebooked.


  • can I make the transfer in time for next flight
    Jun 30, 2016
    Flight booked on Iceland Air from RDU to Hamburg, Germany. First flight is actually operated by Jet Blue from RDU to Boston arriving 20:08 Terminal C. Connecting flight Iceland Air departs 21:30 Terminal C. That 1 hr. and 22 min. We will have checked bags and carryon. Can we make this connecting flight and do we have to go through a 2nd security check and will they transfer our checked bags from Jet Blue to Iceland Air connecting flight.


    IcelandAir uses Terminal E in Boston. Since everything is on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your checked bags in Boston but you do have to go to Terminal E and go through security. You should have just enough time as long as your flight from RDU is on-time.


    Also, note that you posted this on the Newark Airport page, not Boston. I am assuming that's a mistake and that Newark is not involved in your journey at all.


    Thank you. Yes Boston is the airport not Newark but this website wouldn't allow my selection of Boston and kept asking to designate an airport so I used RDU, not sure why Newark showed up.


    Flight change last minute on American leaving from PHX arriving in Newark at 4:20, but we've been delayed. I have a flight to Dublin at 7:20 on United with a check bag. What is the likelihood I will make my Dublin flight today?


  • United & BA connection time

    Hi Zap, question now for my home-bound flight, could I arrive on my Detroit to Newark flight - arriving 20.00 - would i make my BA coonection to LHR at 21.30? TIA


    Do you have checked bags? With checked bags that's not possible. Without checked bags it's very very difficult as you will still have to change terminals and go through security.


    Thanks ZAP, yes we have cked bags, I'm doing very well at this am I? :)


    Apologies - 'not' doing well at this!

    A group of 6 adults plan to fly from Glasgow to Newark UA162 in October 9am flight landing in Newark 11.45am local time. Our connecting flight to Lexington UA4457 leaves 13.35 therfore giving us 1hr 50mins....is this achievable or more likely unachievable?? Both United Airlines flights.


    It's possible if the flight from Glasgow is on-time.


  • Connection between A & C

    I am looking to purchase a JetBlue flight from Orlando Fl arriving Terminal A connecting with a United Flight terminal C to Los Angles onto Auckland New Zealand. I have 2 hours to connect is this enough time. and do I have to collect bags from JetBlue and then recheck in at United or can they be transferred?


    United and JetBlue do not have an interline baggage agreement. This is barely possible if everything goes perfectly. I personally wouldn't try it.


    if I then chose to fly United connecting with United would 2 hours be enough to transit


    Yes, that would be enough time, especially if everything was on the same reservation. Even if it wasn't you could show your second confirmation to the United agent in Orlando and they should check your bags through to Auckland.


  • Another Mistake!
    Jun 27, 2016
    Did I do that again? Arrive Terminal B, depart Terminal C!!


    Answer is the same


  • Mistake - Terminal B to Terminal C
    Jun 27, 2016
    Regarding last post: Arrive from Rome Terminal C and depart Terminal C to LAX. Thanks!


  • Rome - EWR - LAX by United

    I will arrive at EWR at 1:25pm (if on schedule) Terminal B and depart at 3:00pm, Terminal B. Do I have time? Is there a convenient place to smoke a cigarette at the terminal?? Thank you!


    You barely have enough time to make this connection, let alone having enough time to take a smoke break.


    That was my fear. Thank you!

    I will be flying from Manchester GB to Pittsburgh mid august, all flights are with united, I have a 3hr 50min layover in Newark before I catch my connecting fight too Pittsburgh at another terminal, will that be enough time? also I'm not sure what happens with my baggage, will I have to collect it and re check in? and pass through security to board my next flight, any info would be great. thanks.


    Yes, that is enough time. You will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go to your departure terminal (you could depart from A or C), then go through security.


  • Connection from C to B

    I'm flying from LA to Stockholm via Newark. My flight times just got changed so I'll arrive at 16:30 to Terminal C and the flight to Stockholm leaves at 17:20 from Terminal B. That's 50 minutes. Both flights are with SAS. Do I have a chance of making my flight?


    Your first flight will be operated by United. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal C to the gates SAS uses in Terminal B. You have just enough time if your flight from LA is on-time.


  • Conection with a disabled person
    Jun 25, 2016
    We will arrived from France at EWR terminal B around 14h 30 , my wife is legaly blind. We have now to book a connecting flight to Chicago. How many time do we need for this connection, going trough the all process with the airport assistance for disabled ? Is 2 hours enough ? Thanks


    On two separate reservations I would want at LEAST 3 hours. On the same reservation 2 hours might be OK.
