  • Domestic Flight

    Do you have to go through immigration at Newark for a domestic flight? Either arriving or leaving from Newark to Fla. ?


    If you are just taking a domestic flight there is no US Immigration or Customs.


  • terminal transfer & security

    I WILL ARRIVE UNITED FROM CHICAGO AT 5:13 Pm at Terminal C I fly from Terminal B on SAS at 6:55 PM to Oslo. Do I have to go through security before entering Term B to get to SAS gate & will I have enough time ? only 1.5 hours


    United operates a shuttle bus inside security from C to the satellite of B where SAS flights depart. You have enough time.


  • Connecting from Amtrak to United-International Flight
    Jun 19, 2016
    Hi--I'm flying United into Milan on 6/26. The first leg of the flight is actually a train ride from Philly to Newark. We have 2hr 40 min to connect, but we have to get from the train station to check in at the United counter/check luggage then go thru security. I've called United and they say this is enough time. Any thoughts?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Changing Planes in Newark
    Jun 17, 2016
    i will arrive from manchester (UK) around 12.00pm with United Airlines then depart at 13>55pm to Ottawa - again with united airlines express, i will be traveling with hand luggage only - a very infrequent traveller- is this do able - looking at the comments regarding connection times i am very unsure about the times given by the flight company.


    With only Carry-Ons this should be possible. You will arrive, go through US Immigration and Customs, then take the AirTrain to your departure terminal (likely A), then go through security.


  • Tranasit connections ariving on US carrier then departing to Canada on
    Jul 24, 2016
    I will arrive in EWR via United and then depart to Toronto then on to Vancouver on Air Canada. What are the transit and baggage procedures for connecting to Air Canada in EWR.


    Where are you flying into EWR From?


    Arriving from Palm Beach International, Florida, connect to Air Canada to Toronto then on to Vancouver.


    You will take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security. If everything is on the same reservation you will be issued all boarding passes in PBI and won't have to do anything with your bags in Newark.


    Will I have to clear Customs in Toronto with all baggage before proceeding to Vancouver departure gate?


    You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Toronto. I've heard that recently they have not been requiring passengers coming from the US to claim their bags when connecting in Toronto.


    Thank you for all your information. Greatly appreciated.


    Flying into EWR from London at 1:10pm then got a connecting flight to Norfolk, VA at 3:16ish, what do I need to do with my bags and changing terminals etc? (Also my first time flying alone)


    Cpan. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to your departure terminal on the AirTrain and go through security. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Very much appreciated, thank you.


    Just one more thing, my flight is tomorrow. Landing in terminal C and my connecting departs from A, where are the re-check desks located? As I can't find anything on the airport maps and are there signs that can point me towards them?


    They're right after US Customs. it's hard to miss. A good portion of the passengers on your flight will be using it.


  • tight connection
    Jun 15, 2016
    thursday, I fly into Newark at 7:18am gate A23 but my connection is only 41 minutes @ Terminal C128. My flight leaves at 7:59am, do I have enough time and do I have to go thru security again? Nervous. carry on bag only


    If you take the United shuttle bus this is possible but only barely and if everything goes perfectly.


    Thank you. I hope my flight gets in early. I'll have my fingers crossed no problems

    Wa arrive at Newark at 12h00 from Paris (Terminal B). We have an other plane at 14h35 (Termianl B). Do we have enought time?


    Where are you flying to from Newark? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question with the information you have included.


    We travel from Paris (CDG) to Newark airport with UNITED AIRLINES. The plane is intended to land at 12h00. We want to take an other plane at the same airport, the same Terminal but with an other compagny ( DELTA) : 14:35 NEWARK LIBERTY INTL (EWR) --> 16:28 INNEAPOLIS (MSP)


    That's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.


  • Mumbai to San Diego via Newark
    Jun 13, 2016
    I intend to travel from Mumbai to San Diego via Newark. Flights are UA49 and UA1593 with a connection time of 110 mins. Please advise 1) Will bags get checked in till San Diego from Mumbai 2) Where shall I undertake immigration - Newark or San Diego 3) Is the connection time sufficient


    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 go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thanks a lot ZAP. For return, I have a 44 min connection between san diego arrival and Mumbai Departure - again through UA. Is it safe to book it?


    On the return? Yes, that would be possible - it obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from San Diego is delayed.


    44 minutes is a tight connection for international. I think that would be the first flight out of San Diego in the 6am hour, so its more likely to be on time, but if you miss the Mumbai flight, the next one isnt until the next day, and other carriers would be your only option. Besides, they will board that Mumbai flight at the time you are touching down, so if you have lots of carry on items, you could risk having to check your carry on if the flight is full. I would give yourself more time, before a 14 hour flight, you want to have time to use the restroom, walk around a bit, etc. Just my two cents.


  • Flight from SeaTac-EWR-BCN
    Jun 13, 2016
    Hello, I'm flying from Seattle to Barcelona with a 1 hour connection in Newark, all via United. Will I have to go through customs again, even though the first leg is a domestic flight?


    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, both in Terminal C.


  • Panama to Brussels
    Jun 13, 2016
    Hello, I will be traveling from Panama (PTY) to Brussels (BRU) via EWR. United 1022 and then United 999. It is my first time in this airport... in the Airline the told me I have to do migration then pick up baggage, pass customs and then "drop off" my baggage... Can somebody please explain to me exactly what I need to do??? I mean, should I "out" and go to United front desk and chek in again to next flight after pick up my baggage? Thanks for your help. I only have 2:30 hours (if my first fligth is on time).


    There is a desk right after you clear US Customs where you can drop off your bag, you don't have to go out to the United ticket counter, but you will have to go through security again to get to your gate for the flight to Brussels.


    Thanks a lot.

    I am arriving on United Arilines on July 5th @ 11.55am to catch a 14.30 flight to SFO. What is the route /procedure through EWR please? have i got enough time ?


    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 and got hrough security. You should have just about enough time.


  • Transit from EWR to LGA Airport & Transit visa
    Jun 11, 2016
    Coming from Mumbai for Toronto via EWR and LGA airport. Do I need transit visa on EWR air port and do I have to collect my luggage to get plan at LGA for Toronto?


    If you are an Indian citizen you need a US transit visa whether you are changing airports or not. And yes, you have to claim your luggage to take it to LGA. You need at least 5 hours for this transfer. It will cost approximately $100 to take a taxi between the two airports.


  • 90 Minute Connection Time
    Jun 10, 2016
    I have an upcoming United flight Glasgow GLA --- EWR --- Syracuse SYR, with a 90 minute connection time. I believe I'm arriving to Terminal B, and need to connect out of Terminal C. Do I need to pass customs, collect luggage, then re-check luggage in Terminal B? Can I used the transfer shuttle? Thank you!


    Yes, 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 A or C (your flight to Syracuse could depart from either), then go through security and to your departure gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thanks ZAP! You're so helpful on this forum :)


  • Arrive C, depart from B 4pm, 6:55
    Jun 10, 2016
    We will be arriving at Newark(United Airlines) from Providence RI at terminal C at 4:00 pm. Our flight to Oslo (SAS airlines)departs from terminal B at 6:55 pm. What is the best way to travel from terminal C to B? Will we have to go through security between C and B? Will we have enough time?


    There is a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal C to the SAS gates in Terminal B. Even if you took the airtrain and went through security, you should have plenty of time.


    Thank you so much!
