Traveling United from MCO TO EWR ARRIVE TERMINAL C
If both tickets are on the same reservation you have enough time and don't have to do anything with your bags. You just have to take the shuttle or airTrain to Terminal B.

I will be travelling from Montreal, Canada to San Diego,CA through Newark. I have a European Passport. Will I need to get my checked bags and go through US Customs again in Newark before continuing with my connection to San Diego?


You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal C. If you arrive in Terminal A, United runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal C.
Flying with Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Columbus through EWR. How can I switch terminals? Do I have to recheck my bags? Any information could help. Thanks in advance.
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take the AirTrain to your departure terminal (A or C) and then go through security and to your departure gate. Note that the second flight is operated by United Express.
Flying from ARN to ORD through EWR. I have one and a half hours to get to connecting flight. I do have a checked bag. Flying United both legs. Will I make this?
It will be very difficult even if everything goes smoothly.
Flying with United from DCA to EWR, and then EWR to HKG. Will 1hr 20mn enough time? Will I need to go through security checkpoint when going from Terminal A to C?
That is enough time. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.
Hello! I will be flying from Shannon (Ireland) to Mexico and stopping at Newark for six hours. I was wondering if I would be able to go out and meet with someone and how long before the flight should I be going through security again.
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon so when you get to Newark you will be free to go where you want. You should be back at the security checkpoint about 3 hours before your flight to Mexico.
Will I have to re-check my bags or will they go straight on the other flight?
You don't have to do anything with your bags.
I have booked a holiday to Las Vegas which involves flying from Birmingham UK to Newark on United Airlines, then catching a connecting flight to Las Vegas.
On first landing in the USA, do we have to clear immigration and customs, and recheck our bags before boarding the connecting flight? Also the next flight is in another terminal (C, we are arriving at terminal B).
I am worried that the 90 minutes between flights will not be long enough for us to make the connecting flight, but the holiday company just says that it is a legal connection time. What happens if we miss the connecting flight?
Please can anyone provide any advice.
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 C, and go through security and to your departure gate. This is a legal connection but it is very difficult.
I will flirt from Bogotá to Amsterdam. I'm taking a connection flight on Newark. I have a friend who lives on NY and I wanna know if I can meet him on the airport before my flight
How long of a connection do you have? Once you clear US Immigration and Customs in Newark you will be outside security and can meet your friend there.
I will be from 350pm to 650. What do you think ? :)
I personally don't think that's enough time to be worth it unless he lives very close to the airport. You'll get out of customs at about 5 and will have to go back to the security line at about 5:20
I am returning from Brussels in Europe to Panama in Central America via Newark. I have 2:15 hours for the connection and I am only coming with carry on. Two weeks ago took me 3 hours to get through Houston during a connection so I am concerned that 2:15 hours is not enough at this time of the year in Newark...
This is enough time, as long as your flight from Brussels is on time.
I will travel from Indianapolis IND to Venice VCE through EWR. I will arrive at terminal A in EWR and will leave from terminal C with 55 minutes available for the connection. Is it feasible? Can I go from terminal A to terminal C avoiding customs? How much time does it take to do this connection? Thank you!
It's possible. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. There is a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.
