First time flyer here. Im looking to a book a flight that I am unsure of and just wanted to know if this layover gives me enough time. The flight would be United Express from Ottawa to Newark and United Express from Newark to Fort Wayne with a 45mins layover in Newark. My question is if I do a pre clearance in Ottawa (Canada) will I bypass customs in newark? and will I need to recheck my baggage or will it go all the way to Fort Wayne since both flights are United Express? Also would it be difficult to make my connecting with 45mins?
Yes, you will not have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Newark as that is taken care of in Ottawa. Your arrival will be like a domestic flight. You won't have to do anything with checked bags in Newark. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which should both be in the same area of Terminal A.
I am travelling from Frankfurt, Germany to San Jose Juan Santamaria Airport in Costa Rica via Newark with United Airlines. I arrive at Newark Terminal B at 14.35 and leave at 16.30 for the connecting flight to San Jose. Both flights are with United Airlines on one reservation on a Saturday. I have a number of queries. 1) Will I have to collect my hold baggage at Terminal B and re-check for onward flight or will the baggage go straight through? 2) Will I have enough time to travel from Terminal B to Terminal C? 3) will I have to clear immigration and customs at Terminal B? 4) Will I have to go through immigration checks at Terminal C? I have found conflicting answers on this forum regarding collection of baggage - some answers say one must collect baggage and re-check, others say that the baggage goes straight through to destination.
Yes, 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 C, go through security and to your departure gate.
Also, you should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

Hi.
I arrive from Frankfurt and have to go to Orlando.
Both planer are United, but will I have to go through customs and imm. in Newark?
And will I have to check the bag in again?
I have 1.35 hs in lay over time - will I make it?
Thanks.
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, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Do I have to pass through security if I am catching a connecting flight from terminal A to terminal C? BOS-NEWARK-PUNTA CANA
United runs a shuttle inside security from Terminal A to Terminal C. However, most flights from Boston arrive in Terminal C.
Domestic (PIT to EWR) and international flights (EWR to DEL) are both United. Will check baggage thru to DEL at PIT. Must I pick up baggage and recheck for the international leg of the trip? Will 1 hour 15 minutes present a problem?
Your bags will be checked through to DEL in PIT. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal A, there is a shuttle inside security to Terminal C where you will depart.
You are wonderful. Thank you.
hi, my scheduled plan is to travel from Mumbai to Chicago via a transit at Newark. The time gap between connecting flight is 1 hr 25 min. In this context , I would like to know whether the stop over will require me to have an immigration chk, in which case my concern is the time gap available is too short. It is a tourist visa. Pl guide.
Yes, in Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. That is a very difficult connection, however, if you miss it and both flights are on the same reservation, United has nearly hourly flights from Newark to Chicago that you can be rebooked on.
Hi, Im flying from Miami to Vancouver and found a ticket that has a 33 minute layover in Newark for time time/price range I want (it's a total of 3 flights, lol). I was wondering if 33 minutes was long enough to go from the terminal to my next flight that goes to San Francisco. If so, what if my first flight is delayed for some reason? I leave in April 4th, so would there be any risk of bad weather that could affect my flights? Never had a short layover like this so I'm just trying to decide if I should get it or it's too risky.

Thanks!
It's pretty risky, even if both flights are on United.
Risky in what way? If the first flight is delayed? Or transit time in the airport?
Was actually able to switch to an earlier flight (thanks United for their free switching of flights in the first 24 hours!) And thank you for messaging me, completely forgot about the earlier flight I saw when booking
Go for it. Make life an adventure.
Hi, we plan to take AC2481 from United Kingdom to EWR on Feb. 26 2017, the flight will arrive in EWR at 12:00pm, then we need to connect AC7655 which departure at 14:10 to Toronto. Will 2 Hours and 10 minutes will be enough for us? do we need to re-checked luggage? Thanks
Yes, that is just enough time. The First flight is operated by United. it 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 A and go through security.
I usually fly United but have a Jet Blue flight out of terminal A. My son is going out of terminal C at about the same time. The United Club in terminal A is closed, so I thought we would go to a club in C. I have to make my way back to terminal A. Questions..... Will I have a problem getting through security in terminal C with a Jet Blue ticket? How do I best transfer back to terminal A to catch my flight?
Yes, you will not be allowed through security in C with a Jetblue ticket.
I contacted TSA, they advise that if I have a same day ticket on any airline out of Newark I can go through security at terminal C. I can then transfer back to terminal A, inside of security, by taking a bus by gate 71. I assume the bus tubs on the tarmac. That returns me to terminal A with no need to clear security again.
Runs on the tarmac, not tubs.
