  • Start/End Times for the TA & TC Connection shuttles

    What time does the TA&TC shuttles stop/start?

     

    As far as I know they operate whenever there are still United departures, so probably 5 AM to Midnight.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. On my return journey from Costa Rica to London with United, I will be transiting through Houston instead of Newark . Is the procedure the same there?

     

    Actually, going through Houston you will not have to claim your bags, but you still have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.

    Next month I will be flying from London to Costa Rica with a stop of about two hours at Newark. Both flights will be with United. Will I have to claim my baggage and then check it in again?

     

    Yes, in London you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go to Terminal C if you arrived in Terminal B, and go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Sorry, I meant In Newark and also that should be enough time.

     

  • Is 1h35 enough time to change planes?

    I'm looking at flights from Costa Rica to the UK. There is one option that arrives from UK at 8.25pm and leaves at 10pm giving a 1h35 to change planes. Is this enough? Will i have to change terminals, collect baggage inbetween etc? Really don't want to miss the flight!

     

    It's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. If there are any issues you will be stuck in Newark overnight. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security in Newark.

    Hello, I am flying to DC via Newark on Friday from Madrid. Do I need to take my baggage and drop it at the United counter once I have landed in NY? Also, I arrive to Terminal B but my flight to DC departs from Terminal A, how do I get there? Thank you!

     

    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then take the AirTrain to your departure terminal and through security.

    Arriving on a Wednesday morning from Halifax on a United flight, depart for Antigua 51 minutes later. Both are in terminal A. Is this enough time? United changed our flight times, they say that we have plenty of time.

     

    Your flight to Antigua will depart from Terminal C, not A. You have barely enough time. You will preclear US immigration and customs in Halifax. In Newark you will take a shuttle bus inside security between terminals A and C.

    I'm flying from Toronto(YYZ) to Beijing (PEK), I need to transfer in EWR. When I arrive at EWR, do I need to get my baggage and re check in again? Because. I only have 55 minutes between the two flights, kind of worried.

     

    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Toronto. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark. You have just enough time to make your connection.

    That should be barely enough time. Just move as quickly as you can.

     

    Thank you. I arrive with lufthansa. What shiuld i do after passing immigration? As i know united us in terminal 3 or c . How about luggage?

     

    What about luggage if i travel by lufthansa and then by united. Where i should rechecked baggage. What about boarding card. I travel on one ticket so i should have it printed at first airport where i started trip

     

    You will arrive in terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk immediately after, then take the airtrain to terminal C and go through security. You will be issued both boarding passes in Frankfurt.

     

    Thank you . Can i ask someone to help me to get through immigration if the queue was too long?

     

    No, most of the passengers going through immigration are connecting, you can't cut the line.

     

    Thank you Zap

I know details in B as follows: US immigration, claiming bag and US customs. Do I re-check my baggage at United desk in Terminal B or Terminal C? in B or C at United deskWhat about my baggage I have to re-check my bag again in terminal B or in terminal C? How I get the fastest way from B to C and how long does it take? And what are the details in C?

     

    You will recheck at the recheck desk right after customs in terminal B. You will then take the airtrain to terminal C which takes 5-10 minutes.

And what is the easiest way from a to c Thank you for your help from one very nervous lady lol

     

    On your way to Orlando in Newark you will arrive in terminal B go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then take the airtrain to terminal C, go through security and to your gate. On your way back to Birmingham in Newark you will take the United shuttle bus from A to C, you don't have to do anything with your bags.

    I am flying for Mumbai to Kansas City Jet Airways - delta (BOM to AMS to EWR) and connecting flight from EWR is United airline. I have a layover of 16 hrs in Newark. I plan to go out of the airport. Will I get my bags after custom or it will get transferred through? and if getting them back, can I recheck them prior to leaving airport or I need to check bags the next day? Thanks a lot.

     

    You will claim your bags to go through US customs. You will probably have to wait until the next day to recheck them.

    Yes, you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then take the airtrain to terminal A and go through security. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Terminal B query

    Hi, My friend will be reaching Newark by 29-Dec 5.15 PM and his connecting flight to Greenville (GSP) has been postponed to 30-Dec 8.00 AM. Since the layover is more, he is planning to leave the airport. Question is after he clears the immigration, can he re-check the luggage at the re-check center and go out of airport? or does he have to re-check only after he returns the next day morning? Many thanks!

     

    He will have to ask the United agent after arrival.

     

    Thanks for the reply !!! I will ask my friend to check with an agent

    I am arriving on an international flight into terminal B and need to make a connecting flight at terminal A. How long will it take me?

     

    You need a bare minimum of 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended if both flights are on the same reservation. If it's two different reservations I recommend 3 hours.

     

    Would you know if I will need to clear customs in Newark? My connecting flight goes into Savannah Int'l Airport and I am not sure where I would go through custome. Thanks for the reply.

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Newark.

     

    Thank you ZAP.
