  • Checked baggage from international to domestic flight
    Mar 24, 2016
    I am travelling to Chicago in a few weeks time. My flight is from Shannon, Ireland and I have to fly to Newark first and then get a connecting flight from there to Chicago. Just wondering will I have to collect and re-check my baggage? Or will that be done automatically by United Airlines. They are the airline I have for both flights. I land at 15.09 and depart at 17.30. And I will have pre cleared US customs at Shannon airport.


    All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. You don't have to do anything with your baggage. You should have plenty of time.


    Oh that's a relief! First time flying to America and going by myself so that's one less thing to worry about. Thanks ZAP


  • Transfer from international to domestic flight with re-check in
    Mar 24, 2016
    Hi, I will arrive at EWR with United at 12:30 pm from Berlin (often delayed by 30+ mins based on Google flights), and need to re-check in for another non-connected United flight at 4:24 pm to Greenville. Do I have enough time to go through immigrations, re-check in and customs without checked bags? Thanks.


    My two flights are on separate reservations, so I need to re-check in to get a boarding pass for the second flight. Is it possible to pre-print the boarding pass so that I can transfer just like I have two connecting flights in one reservation? Thanks.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Yes, you can check in online for the boarding pass to Greenville (either print out or use your smartphone). That way you don't have to stop at a check in kiosk in newark.


  • What time should i allow?
    Mar 22, 2016
    Hi. We are arriving on a domestic flight from Orlando and connecting to fly on to London, England. Is 3hours long enough for this or should I allow longer?


    Yes, that should be an appropriate amount of time.


  • 55 min connection from Denver to Manchester, UK enough?
    Mar 21, 2016
    I have not flown through Newark in a long time and I don't know the current terminal layout. Will 55 min be enough for a connection from Denver on route to Manchester England?


    If both flights are on United that should be enough time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal C.


  • SAS International arrival to SAS (UA) domestic
    Mar 21, 2016
    Arriving from Copenhagen on SAS 909 arriving 12:55 pm at terminal B. Then departing from terminal C at 2:36 pm on SAS 6722 (operated by UA) for Atlanta. Can I get through customs, change terminals, re-check my luggage and board in time?


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    United allowed a connection to SFO at Newark which was within 75mins of scheduled arrival of my flight from DEL. Even though the arriving flight landed early and I had 90 mins - I managed to go through immigration (it helped I'm a US citizen as the queue was short), collect my baggage (I was brought on par with non-citizens, time wise), go through customs (it was a breeze), rechecked baggage (almost no time). However I almost missed my flight as I had to go through security check again which was taking 2hrs (I had to take help from an airport agent to jump the line). I've made that similar connection in past and I realize you need to have a minimum of 2hours to make a stress-free (relatively) connection.


  • international arrival then domestic departure
    Mar 21, 2016
    If we arrive on delta from paris at 4:00 pm should we be able to make an american flight at 6:30?


    That would be just enough time if everything went smoothly. It would be much easier with no checked bags.


  • Time to connect
    Mar 21, 2016
    I have a tight connection of 55 min in EWR from YOW at 7:45AM. Arriving in Terminal A and departing from Term C. How long is the bus shuttle ride form A to C? How long willl I have to wait ? What is the bus frequency? ev


    The buses run pretty frequently, but this is still a pretty difficult connection.


  • SAS to UA
    Mar 20, 2016
    Arriving from Copenhagen on SAS 909 arriving 12;55 PM. Connecting to SAS 6722 (UA operator) departing 2:25 pm. Can I make it thru customs to next terminal bound for Atlanta?


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Connection from Europe to Mexico
    Mar 20, 2016
    Travelling from Glasgow to Cancun with UA (arrival in terminal B, departure to Cancun in terminal C). Is it 1:40 hour connection enough? Do I have to re-check the baggage?


    Yes, you will have to claim and re-check your baggage. This is possible but it will depend on everything going perfectly to make it.


  • Connecting Flights
    Mar 16, 2016
    Hi I land in Terminal B at 1pm (international flight) and have a connecting flight from terminal C at 14.55 (so almost 2 hours) is that enough time as I am assuming I will have to collect luggage and have it rechecked?


    It's barely enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation and everything goes smoothly.


    So as long as we move through smoothly. Is it worth telling a member of staff as we land that we have a connecting quite close in time? Might help get us through?


    No, it won't help. Most of your plane will have tight connections.


  • Layover time
    Mar 15, 2016
    I have a 2h10 layover in Newark airport, coming from Lisbon with TAP, arriving in terminal B and departing to Washington Ronald Reagan airport from terminal C with ExpressJet airlines. Do I have enough time to do this? Thank you!


    You should have enough time. You will arrive, 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 A (United Express flights operated by Expressjet pretty much always depart from A), and go through security.


  • connecting from Terminal A to C via BUS
    Mar 15, 2016
    Have a one hour connection between Terminal A and Terminal C. Where, exactly, do I get the bus from Term A to C


    If you are flying United Express into Terminal A it will be fairly obvious. You can also ask any United employee and they will know where it is.


  • transfer Terminal A to Temninal B
    Mar 14, 2016
    Flying from vancouver to Bombay with Lufthansa.I have layover of 3 hr at Newark that sufficient time for terminal change & immigration?


    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Note that both of your flights will be operated by United. You have plenty of time.


    Its a Lufthansa?


    Lufthansa does not fly from Vancouver to Newark or Newark to Bombay.


  • Oslo-Newark-Miami
    Mar 14, 2016
    Hi, I will be traveling in a group of nine from Oslo to Miami with a transfer at Newark. I will be flying with United Airlines. How much time should I plan with for this connecting flight?


    I recommend a minimum of 2 hours.


    There is two hours in between the flights UA39 and UA1105. But I am afraid that it will be to short- You may now how these flights correspond and the distances in between?


    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 go through security.


    Thanks. I have talked to United Airlines and they told me they demanded a minimum of 90 minutes in between their flights. Is that good time for connection or will it be a risk trough immigration and security for a delay?


    90 minutes is the bare minimum. I recommend 2 hours.


    But is TWO hours sufficient to be sure there is enough time?


    There are no sure things, but it should be enough time.


  • Transfer terminal B to C
    Mar 13, 2016
    Flying SAS to EWR terminal B, with 2 hrs to connecting United flight from terminal C. Understand we have to pass through Immigration, but is there an internal shuttle available to avoid passing through security?


    Any time you enter the United States and have to connect to another flight then you have to go through security. You have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security there.
