Flying to Canada from Germany. My itinerary is Munich->Newark->Toronto. My layover in Newark though is only 95 minutes. Will I be required to go through customs, get my suitcase, re-check, and then go through security or will be directly connected to a plane to Canada?
Yes, 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 to your departure terminal, and go through security. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible.
I'm flying with my family from Houston (IAH) on UA into Newark (EWR) term C and flying onto Bermuda (BDA) on UA, also term C. We will have checked in baggage. Our agent said the 65 mins between flights was enough and baggage would be checked through - was he giving me correct advice? Although he also said it was my only option if wanting to arrive and depart from the same airport! Please advise.
Yes, that is correct. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks ZAP - a real relief - I was starting to doubt the advice of our agent and began getting sleepness nights about having to pick up luggage and re-check it in etc with only an hour!! Our only concern now is that our first flight isn't overly delayed! Thank you for giving me peace of mind - as it is meant to be a holiday after all!
I have read that it may be difficult to transfer from terminal B to terminal C in 1 1/2 hours. Why does the airline allow a ticket to be purchased in this way if it is not fisable? I am traveling with 2 children and have hold luggage. How can I ensure I will make my connecting flight as I have private transfers organized once I get to cancun.
where are you flying from? What airlines are you flying?
I am looking at a connection that would require me to transfer from Terminal A to C with only 55 minutes between flights. Is this possible? Do you have to go through security in between the two terminals or can you transfer without going through security again? Thanks
If both flights are United/United Express then you can take a shuttle bus inside security and should have just enough time.
I am flying from Tampa to Newark and then on to Barcelona, Spain. Both flights are with United and the layover is 1 hr 52 min. Is that plenty of time? Will I have to change terminals? Thanks for your replies.
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. You have plenty of time.
We'll be flying BA on a Friday from LHR, landing in EWR at 19:35. We have a separate reservation with Southwest departing EWR at 20:55 to MDW. Is this enough time to transfer? There's a later flight with United, that leaves at 21:29. Would that be a better choice?
Both connections are pretty much impossible with checked bags. Without checked bags the United flight might be possible.
Hello all. On August 16th I'm landing in EWR on a flight from Seattle with United. I arrive at 2:21 pm. At 5:25 I am supposed to be taking off on a flight to Stockholm-Arlanda, this flight also being United. Do you know if I will have to change terminals? I'm a frequent flyer but have never flown through Newark. It seems like a complicated airport and I'm not sure I could make it with transferring and waiting in the TSA lines!
Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on your way to Stockholm. You have plenty of time. You do not have to go through security.
We will arrive with Swiss Airways (don't know the terminals) at 13.50 and we will fly out at 16.30 with United to San Jose, Costa Rica. Will the 2hrs and 40 min be enough to pick up our bags, go through customs, check in the bags and go through security (and possibly change terminals?)
You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C. That should be enough time.
