Hello,
I ll be on a 1h40 transfer in Newark, arriving from Brussels on a Lufthansa flight and then taking a flight to Panama with UA for another transfer before getting to my final destination Costa Rica.
Do I have to go through customs? Or just walk straight to my next flight? Do I have enough time to catch my flight?
Thank you for your help.
Regards
Aude
Both flights will be on United. Yes, in Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly take the AirTrain to Terminal C, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi, I have a connecting flight to LAX (from Europe). SAS coming in, UA going out, one reservation. How long time does it take to get from terminal B to terminal C? Do I have to collect my bags etc? I have a 1:35 hours transition window.
Yes, you will arrive in 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 C, and go through security. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
hello, a client will transfer in Newark (arriving with UA from Hong Kong, departing with Copa to Panama), with seperate tickets and he only has1 hour transit time. is this enough? does he need to claim his luggage? thanks
No, he does not have enough time and that's completely impossible. You need to rebook him. He will have to go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, then possibly take the AirTrain to Terminal B, then re-check his bags with Copa then go through security. It's completely impossible to do that in an hour.
Hello, I have a connection time of 1 hour 5 mins in Newark. I will be arriving from Newark from Chicago (eta 8.45pm) and going to Edinburgh (flight leaves at 9.50pm). Judging by recent United flights, I should arrive at Terminal C and depart from Terminal C. Is this enough time? Do we just need to get off the Chicago flight and make our way to our departure gate? (No security or checked baggage?)
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Chicago is on-time. Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks Zap!
Hi I am arriving at Newark terminal B from Europe (SAS flight) and will continue from terminal A to San Diego. Do I need to claim my luggage and recheck at terminal B? Is the air train the most simplest way to go between the terminals or can you walk between?
Best
What airline are you flying to San Diego? You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. Are your tickets purchased on one reservation or two separate reservations?
Ok thanks. I have made one reservation SAS to US and Alaska airlines to San diego.
OK, then 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, get your Alaska boarding pass if SAS can't issue it, and go through security.
I have connecting flight to Vancouver, Air Canada, flight AC549, at 19:00. Will I have to clear customs/security at EWR, how to get to AC gate? Distance? Will I make my connection?
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, take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security and to your departure gate. I do not think you have enough time for your connection. 90 minutes would be the bare minimum.
Hi, I have a connecting flight in Newark to St. Louis. Comming from Burlington VT.My flights are in the same terminal ( A) gates 23 and 27A is 35 minutes enough time to catch my connecting flight?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
i'm flying United in from Pittsburgh to EWR and then flying out with SAS. I have a 1 hour window for connection. Is this enough time? Do I have to go back through security?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. United does run a shuttle bus inside security from their terminals A and C to the SAS gates in B.
I have a flight from milwaukee to Newark and then a flight to edinburgh: both flights are with united airlines: do I need to read-check my baggage? Are the arrival and departure terminals the same? Also, do I need to go through immigration again? Thank you!
You do not have to re-check your bags. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate. You will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle bus between them inside security.
Thank you! So if I'm arriving at terminal A, where do I go to get a shuttle to terminal C? Also, my baggage I don't need to collect it? Will it be transported for my next flight?
I'm going from SFO to EWR and flying with United Airlines. From EWR I have a connecting flight to ANU with a layover of 46 minutes. I'm arriving on UA1796 and have to get on UA1287. Do I need to go to different terminals? And will I have to claim my baggage? Thank you.
Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from SFO is on-time.
