Is 53 minutes enough time to go from gate 87 to gate 138 in Terminal C? the date is March 21st. Thanks for any insight you can provide.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is domestic. However, note that there's no way you could know the exact gates now for a flight that won't happen until March. You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight.
Thanks so much. I'd forgotten to write that the flight was domestic arrival and to international departure. Kate
I will be arriving in EWR from Shanghai. I have 2 hrs. before my connecting flight to Charlotte, which is in a different terminal. Do I have enough time to go through customs, get my luggage and recheck?
If both flights are on United that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Is 2hrs enough time to connect from Cancun to Boston through Newark? Will we need to collect baggage in EWR then go through customs and then security at a different terminal? Will all be on the same reservation.
Yes, that should be just enough time. Yes, 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 change terminals, and go through security.
Seems tight, and stressful. I'm considering a longer layover in IAH for peace of mind and to avoid Newark in February.
Hello i will arrive at newark airport 13:30h monday and got connection flight to dayton 15:25h so 2h between. Will arrivevterminal B and dep terminal A. 2h will be enought so i dont loose my connection flight?thanks
If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time. Where are you flying into EWR from?
What do you mean same reservation? Same company?coming from portugal lisbon then newark 1335h arrive and them 1530h Dayton Ohio.also domi have to pick lugage or it goes straight dayton?thank you
Yes is the same reservation code for both flights lisbon newark and them newark dayton. Best thing to do? No need pick up bagage and go to terminal A
Your bags will be tagged to Dayton, but 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. You have just enough time.
I will travel from Frankfurt to Mexico City with flight connection in EWR. The airline is Lufthansa for both flights. Are 3 hours enough in EWR? I assume I will stay only in the transit area and don't have to claim the bags or clear customs. Is this correct?
The second flight will be operated by United (the first may be as well). The US doesn't have sterile transit areas, so you are completely incorrect. In Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly change terminals to Terminal C, and go through security.
Thank you for your message! In this case, are 3 hours enough?
Hello there, please can someone help or advise me... I'm travelling from LHR to Newark then onto Orlando MCO. Im checking in luggage etc at LHR, do i need to claim bags and clear customs and then re-check in etc. i land at 13.00pm Terminal B and fly from Terminal C at 15.00pm to MCO. Also is that enough time from landing and taking up again??
Yes, in Newark you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. If both tickets are on the same reservation you barely have enough time.
We are flying United on 15DEC (Thurs) from Tokyo to Miami via Newark. Is 2hr10min enough to clear immigration and custom? Our flight from Tokyo is scheduled to arrive at 1645 and the flight to Miami leaves at 1855. Thanks... We were supposed to be on the 9pm flight to Miami, but United has a schedule change ......
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello, I will have a 2h 05m layover in EWR. I will arrive from Phoenix with American Airlines to Terminal A. I then need to pick up my luggage, go to Terminal B, and check in/drop bags for my flight with TAP Portugal to Lisboa. Obviously then go again through security into the gate. Will I have enough time?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I personally wouldn't try it.
Thank you for the answer. I might then change the flight to Newark to an earlier one. How long do you think is the minimum safe layover time there for it to work? Would 3 hours be alright for that?
I am flying from BHX UK to SFO (San Francisco) via Newark with United, on Sunday. Originally I had less than 1.30 hrs to transfer from Terminal B to C, but I have requested a later flight so as I will have 2.25hrs to check through imigration and transfer to Term C. Will I have to collect bag, even though both flights are United and booked on same ticket and will I have sufficient time? Any tips would be appreciated.
Yes, you will have to claim your bag to take it through US Customs, then immediately re-check it at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
