Scheduled arrival on TAP from Lisbon at 3:50pm. Delta to RDU at 5:45pm. We have Global Entry and carry-on bags. Can we make this connection? What's the minimum needed? Thanks!!
With Global Entry and carry-ons only I think you can make this if your check in online for your Delta flight before leaving Lisbon.
Arriving in Terminal A from Canada, departing terminal C to Brazil.
Will I have to pick up my bags and re check? How long should I expect to take to connect gate to gate? Thanks so much
If both flights are on the same reservation you won't have to pick up your bags as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. You just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. If you have a little over an hour you should be OK.
I have a domestic flight landing in B and I have 1h 16mins to make my international connection in C. Both flights are with United and on the same itinerary. Is there transport between that avoids me having to go through security again or is 1h 16mins enough? I also have a back injury and I'm really going to struggle to rush as it is.
Very few United domestic flights arrive in B. If you are one of those few flights, then, yes, you can take a shuttle to C inside security. If you feel it will help, you can call United to request wheelchair service.
I'm arriving from Boston on United in terminal C and have 1hr 15min before my flight to europe departs from terminal B. Have never been through EWR before, is this enough time to transfer?

More info:
This is in the afternoon on a thursday, arriving 4:12pm and departing 5:30pm.
What airline are you flying to Europe? Are both flights on the same reservation?
Yes, both are on the same reservation.
Boston > Newark is United Airlines
Newark > Copenhagen is Scandinavian Airlines
Then you can take a shuttle that runs inside security from Near gate C71 to your departure concourse in Concourse B. You have enough time if your flight from Boston is on-time.
Hi, Connecting from AA to Porter (Terminal A to B) do I have to exit security and go back through security? I will just have carry-on bags. Thank you
Yes, you will have to exit security. You have to take the AirTrain to Terminal B which runs outside security.
Does the pre-clearance Aer Lingus arrival from DUB arrival into Term B? If so can you connect to Term C without going on AirTran and going though security again? I'm wanting to have a short connection
The Airtrain in Newark runs outside security.
Hi, I have 1h40 minutes to connect from terminal B to Terminal C at Newark airport, and catching a flight to Panama. I'm coming from Brussels, and both are united airlines- is it enough time? Do i need to check my bags twice? please let me know thank you!
You will have to 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 C and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks for your reply! when claiming bags, you mean going to pick up the bags on the belt like normally or need to go to a special transit belt/desk? Also, i'm planning to have only a 50l backpack do you think it can be allowed as cabin in a United Airlines flight? its brand is DEUTER
You will claim your bags in the International baggage claim which has a fairly normal carousel. You will re-check at a special desk for connecting passengers coming from International flights. I have no clue if your backpack is eligible to be a carry on without seeing it. United has maximum dimensions posted on their website.
Hi I need some advice. I am flying dublin-Newark with aer lingus then connecting with united for my next flight to Las Vegas. This is all booked under the same booking with aer lingus. I have a stopover time of 2 hours. My bags will go straight through and will have already cleared immigration in dublin. What else do I need to do? Need to go from terminal b to c, will 2 hours be enough time? Thanks in advance, I'm a little nervous as I am traveling alone and my first time to USA!
Yes, your bags will go right through. You just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You have enough time
Hi,

I'm flying in from Birmingham, UK to Newark, and then heading on to Washington-Dulles airport. My itinerary tells me that I need to go from Terminal B to C. Both of my flights are United flights. Will I need to reclaim my bags? Also, I am actually emigrating to the United States, so the border force will have additional things to do for me, and I suppose I have to go through that at Newark. I have a connection time of 2 hours and 30 minutes. Am I screwed, or do you think I'll be okay.

Also, if I could get a step by step guide on what to do to successfully connect to my Dulles flight in Terminal C, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
Yes, you will 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 your departure terminal (could be A or C) and then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time. Yes, when you go through immigration you will have to go see an agent who will activate your emigration visa.
Also, you should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you, Zap. :)
hi i am flying fro manchester to orlando however i have a 5 hour layover in newark and was wondering can i leave the airport? or can i go from the terminal back to the pre security as they have better shopping and food in the pre security area. if anyone has any idea would be a great help or any other options you have for something to do during the layover thanks!
Yes, you can leave the airport. You will be outside security when you clear US Customs. There is NOT better food and shopping pre-security at Newark, most of the food is inside security. You could buy a day pass to the United Club to spend time comfortably.
