  • From Beijing, connecting at EWR, arriving Raleigh
    Nov 12, 2015
    Hi Zap, I made a mistake of my earlier post which was posted on IAD page. The correct transfer airport is EWR. So again: I am deciding to buy a ticket from Beijing to Raleigh by United. United 88 arrives at EWR at 5:50 PM, United 4453 departs at 8:12 PM. That gives 2h22m; will that be enough for a non-US citizen or non-green card holder? I suppose I need to claim baggage, pass border control and recheck baggage. Thank you!


    Yes, that should be barely enough time then. The process in EWR is a bit more complicated because you will also likely have to change Terminals.

    I arrive from San Diego on United and then change planes to fly to Heathrow, also with United. Which terminal do I arrive at and which terminal do I depart from.


    Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • From c to b terminal
    Nov 9, 2015
    I have a flight from Austin TX arriving in Newark terminal C at pm 3:57 and with a continuing flight to Stockholm Sweden, terminal B at 5:55. How do I get from terminal C to terminal B?


    United operates a shuttle bus inside security between Terminal C and the SAS gates in Terminal B. You have enough time.


  • how long does the shutlle take between A and C?
    Nov 4, 2015
    Hello, I have to change flights from terminal A to C and I've got 90 minutes, same airline. Does it take a long time to go with bus shutlle? Long waiting time, long drive? I'm traveling between 5pm and 6.35pm


    The United shuttle bus could take up to 30 minutes. You should have enough time.


  • Time between terminal B and C
    Nov 4, 2015
    We will arrive to terminal B from Stockholm with SAS, and then depart from terminal C on to Miami. We have aprox 2 hours, is that enough? Do we have take our luggage through customs in Newark?


    We are flying with United from terminal C :)


    Hi Eva, we are making almost the same and I have the same question. We come to Newark from Stockholm with SAS arriving in terminal B. Then flying out to Miami from terminal A with American Airlines (at least this is the info I found when checking the Newark page). All the way is on one itinerary through SAS. If I have understood this right we need to go through immigration, take out luggage, switch terminal and then check in both ourselves and luggage again for the next flight and go through security. If someone could answer if this is correct it would be very helpful. We have 4 hours so we should have enough time. And how is it if you can't make all that on the time you have, is the airline to book you on a later flight without cost or do you have to buy a new ticket for the missed trip yourself? When leaving home again (Miami-Chicago-Stockholm) we don't have to do this procedure in Chicago, am I right? Then we take the luggage and customs in Stockholm not before? Thank you! And sorry Eva to drop in on your question.


    Yes, both of you will have to take your luggage through US Customs in Terminal B, then re-check it. SAS should be able to issue the United boarding pass for EVA since they are both star alliance partners but they may not be able to issue the AA boarding pass for Kia, in which case you will have to get it from the AA counter in Terminal A. You should both be able to re-check your bags at the re-check desk in Terminal B after going through US Customs, you will then take the AirTrain to your departure terminal and go through security. You should have enough time for your connections.


  • Milan to Binghamton
    Nov 20, 2015
    Hi, I'll flight from Milan to Binghamton on 9th Nov flight UA18 arriving in Newark at 13:50. Connecting flight UA3604 leaves at 15:04. Both flight are at terminal C. Is there enough time for custom clearance and immigration ? Thanks


    No, that is not enough time. The minimum international to domestic connection time at EWR is 90 minutes and I recommend 2 hours. However, the only rebooking available is a 10:10 PM flight to Binghamton. So maybe you try the 15:04 flight and if you don't make it then you will be rebooked on the 22:10.


    In my recent experience I would say that it is impossible to get through Immagration, collect baggage handed back in, change terminals and pass through the security in less than two hours. United allowed us 1.40, it was totally unrealistic, we spent almost 7 hours in Newark waiting for the next flight.


    Hi if you miss a United Airlines connecting flight, do you get rebooked onto the next available flight for free? Or are there extra charges?


    Hi I finally missed the flight and was rebooked for free onto the next one Regards


  • Dublin to Cincinnati
    Oct 30, 2015
    United flight arriving from Dublin Ireland at 11.50 in terminal C and planning to get flight at 1.05 with United to Cincinnati from Terminal A. Is this enough time left between flights?


    Meant to include Immigration and Customs will be done in Dublin


    Yes, that should be enough time. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between Terminals C and A.


    Oct 28, 2015
    Hello, I will travel from Las Vegas (Nov/30) flight # UA391 and change to flight # UA3320 to Montreal, do i have to change terminals ? What do I need to do? Thanks!


    It appears that both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Interterminal shuttle
    Oct 25, 2015
    Is there a regular shuttle running between terminals? B to C for example.


    United runs a shuttle inside security between C and certain piers of B and A and there is a constant airtrain that runs between all three terminals outside security.


  • from columbus Ohio via Newark to Brussel
    Oct 21, 2015
    Hello, my daughter will be fluying in from Columbus to Newark, arriving in terminal C where she has to catch a connecting flight to Brussles, also leaving in terminal C. Time between flight is 90 minutes ( if the first flight has no delays, because for what I read, there seems to be a 50% chanse on delays historical) Lugage goes straught to Brussel. Does she have to go trough customs again or just switch from gate to gate? Is arrival at TC and departure at TC on the same level?


    beide vluchten via United


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US so she just has to go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. however, Columbus-Newark flights often arrive in Terminal A, not Terminal C. United operates a shuttle bus inside security between A and C. As long as her flight from Columbus is somewhere close to on-time she has enough time for her connection.


  • Arriving Terminal C136 and needs to connect at Terminal A21
    Aug 14, 2016
    My wife is coming from SFO and is arriving Terminal C136 and needs to connect at Terminal A21. She has about an hour, maybe more depending on flight arrival time. Is it fairly easy to take the United shuttle bus, so she does have to go thru security again?


    If she does take the shuttle she will not have to go through security. She has enough time if her first flight is on-time.


    Flying from LAX to Newark with United then we have one hour to get next United flight to Manchester. Is this enough go time and will our bags be transferred automatically? No idea where to find info. Leaving in morning


  • Traveling from St. Louis mo to london England
    Jan 9, 2015
    It will be a long day from mo to london ,how can I make my transfer from southwest to united easy?We will be bringing 3bgs and 2 carry ons? thanks


    You will need at least 3 hours for your transfer. You need to claim your bags from Southwest in Terminal A, then take them on the airtrain to Terminal C to check with United.


  • Direction to Air train station
    Jan 7, 2015

  • Transferring in Newark, baggage claim?
    Jan 7, 2015
    Hi, i will be arriving at Newark from Oslo, Norway and have to transfer to terminal B i think for my connecting flight to San Fransisco, therefore im really unsure on wether i have to claim and then re check-in my luggage and pass trough security again in the new terminal, or if i just go directly to the terminal? And do i take a bus or a train or what? Grateful for any answers!


    What airlines are you flying? Did you purchase both flights together or separately? Yes, you will have to claim your baggage to go through US Customs.


    I'm flying scandinavian arilines (SAS) to Newark and United from there, the whole trip was bought together at SAS own website, Thanks for answer about the luggage, nobody i talked to knew for sure.


    You will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your luggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the AirTrain from Terminal B to Terminal C, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • 2hrs 5min for
    Jan 5, 2015
    I'm travelling from Cancun to Zuerich transferring in Newark. Is 2hrs5mins enough to catch my connecting flight to Zürich. At which terminal would I arrive and at which terminal would I have to take the connecting flight? I'm flying with United (both flights). Will I have to go pick up the luggage and go through customs? Thanks!


    You will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then if you arrived at Terminal B, take the airtrain to Terminal C. Then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time but not much to spare in case of delays.


    Thanks! For sure no need to claim bags even when transferring to an international (vs domestic) flight? Trini-Canadian friends thought we'd still need to recheck bags, so time tight & better change flight tho penalty. Zap, you're familiar with such flights or work there? really appreciate the help!


    oops, i meant this as reply to Zap's reply to me below! sorry for misplaced post.
