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?
Yes, 3 hours would be enough time.
I'm flying United from the UK to Newark, then Air Canada to Toronto. Is 1h45m enough time if I only have carry-on luggage?
With carry-ons only that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
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.
Flying United both segments from LAX->EWR and taking a connection EWR-DEL (india). Have only 1hr 15 min in EWR. Will have a checked bag as well. Will 1.15 hrs be enough to clear immigration etc to board Delhi connection in EWR. I think arrival and departure at EWR is at the same terminal C
Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
On Tues afternoon, Nov. 22nd:

Arriving from Panama (United 1022)
Layover in Newark EWR2h 37m
Departing for Pittsburgh (United 3539)

Is this enough time to get through immigration, customs, etc?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time.
I will be leaving on a roundtrip flight on United from Columbus, Ohio to Shannon, Ireland with a layover at EWR. There is a 1 hour and 30 minute layover before leaving EWR to Shannon. On the return, there is a 2 hour and 30 minute layover before leaving EWR for Columbus, Ohio. Will these numbers work? I am traveling by myself and, if I do it right, will have no checked baggage.
That should be enough time. Both ways all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to go between terminals A and C, then United operates a shuttle bus inside security.
Sweet. Thanks for the info/advice
I a man coming into Newark terminal from Ottawa and have 52 minutes to make connecting flight to West Palm Beach...will I have time to make connecting flight
Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa. If you have to change terminals from A to C, United runs a shuttle bus between the two terminals inside security.
I am going to book flights from UK to SYR via EWR with United Airline but there's only 1hr for connection, is it OK? will they be at the same terminal?
No, that's not enough time. In Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, possibly change terminals, and go through security.
