I have a free pass to use the United Club lounge in Terminal C, but my United Express flight departs from Terminal A. Will I be able to easily transfer between terminals prior to my flight to access the lounge? Planning to head to the airport a few hours early to get some work done. Thanks!
Yes, United runs a shuttle bus that runs inside security between A and C.
My flight from Akron Ohio to Athens Greece only has a 55 minute layover at EWR. All United with baggage. Is that enough time for an international connection?
It will be difficult but not impossible. You will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. You have to take a shuttle bus, which runs inside security to Terminal C and then walk to your departure gate.
Hello. I will arrive from Panama, next I have a flight to brussels. Both are on United in terminal C. Would I need to go throught migration then claim my baggage, customs, drop off baggage and pass throught security and reenter? thanks? Is hard to find United desk to drop off baggage? Thanks.
Yes, you have to do all of that. No, it's not hard to find the re-check desk.
Hi - I will be flying in from TLV to EWR and changing planes at EWR to Atlanta (all on United). All gates are in terminal C. After going though customs and immigration, will I need to go though security again or will i be able to just stay in terminal C
Yes, you will have to go through security again to access the gate area of Terminal C.
Hi,

I will be flying from SAT to EWR to get an international flight to Dublin with a 2hr 25 connection time in Newark.... do we need to switch terminals/go through immigration/re-check our bags after the SAT flight? All flights booked through United.
Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration/Customs when leaving the US.
I am travelling from Mumbai to EWR by United Airlines flight and arrive at terminal C. Then I have a connecting flight by same airline from terminal A to Washington. Do I have to collect my luggage and re check? What is the proces? Please help
Yes, you have to 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 A and go through security and to your departure gate.
I will be flying Delta from SLC to EWR and trying to connect to a TAP Portugal flight to Venice (VCE) with a 1:35 layover and no checked luggage. How reasonable is that? The two flights will not be on the same ticket.
It's not impossible but it won't be easy. I'd say that you have a less than 50% chance of making it.
i wonder if 1hr is enough connecting domestic to international flights at newark
I am flying from Minneapolis to Dublin with connection in Newark, arriving on United, departing on Aer Lingus. I have 2 hours to make the connection. Is that enough? will I need to pick up and re-check my luggage? thanks.
Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation you will not have to claim your bags, just take the AirTrain to Terminal B and go through security.
How did this go for you, Rebecca? I'm doing something similar tomorrow.
Ihaven't gone yet, sorry. Good luck to you!
I hope this finds you before your flight! I flew the new Aer Lingus route from EWR to DUB and the return last week. I started at DEN and ended at LBA (Leeds Bradford), in addition to that one. I booked through United, they carried the DEN-EWR route, and an Aer Lingus subsidiary, Stobart Air, carried the DUB-LBA route.

First, a goofy thing that some other unfortunate individual might run into. The last letter of my first name, Todd, is 'D,' and my middle initial is 'R.' The United computer system, wrote my name as Last/TODDR on the receipt. This seems normal. Elsewhere in their system (I first noticed it in my account on their website), I was listed as doctor, that is "DR TOD Last." Customer service said this was simply a website issue. And nicely, when I checked in online, my boarding pass listed Last/TODDR. Good.

Luckily, when I called United about this issue, they also gave my the Aer Lingus "Booking Reference" (their confirmation number), which I did not receive at booking, and which is required information to do anything on the Aer Lingus site, like checking in or providing advance passport information. I also asked for confirmation that my checked luggage would be sent all the way through. They said that it would not. I would need to collect and re-check in Newark.

With this in hand, I examined my flight information on the Aer Lingus site. They had passed the DR Tod Last over to Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus said that they actually had the correct name in their files, and not to worry about it.

Then I checked in online for the Aer Lingus flights. Boarding passes listed Dr Tod Last. Ugh. I figured that since United told me I'd need to recheck luggage in Newark, that I'd just resolve the name issue there.

Departing DEN, I checked my baggage at their new "I checked in online and already paid any baggage fees" line, which was super fast and hovered over by three managers. They each confirmed that my baggage COULD be checked all the way through to LBA and did so. Nice, and it makes sense, since I saw the two airlines listed as having such an agreement. United customer service: 0 for 1.

Arriving at EWR, I had a 3-hour layover. I had to go from Terminal C to Terminal B. A shuttle exists for doing this without leaving security, but the person in charge refused passage to those connecting to Aer Lingus flights, saying they were not affiliated (I'm almost certain she was just wrong about this, but I can't confirm.) So I left security and took the train to B and went to talk to the Aer Lingus check-in crew about the name issue. I was told that it was good of me to approach them, as my home-printed boarding passes were no good for some reason. They did not elaborate, and I didn't care enough to ask. Having already checked through the baggage seemed fine with them. Also for no particular reason, they could not correct my name on the boarding pass, so I went to security with an ounce of hope. To my stupefaction, the name issue followed my the entire round trip, and no one ever said anything about it. No security, no immigration or customs, no airline personnel. Maybe it's because the difference was so slight and looked like it was just cut off or because it's a common alternate spelling. But still, you'd think an inexact name would be a flag.

The mini-B Terminal for the EWR-DUB flight sucked. Cramped with little to do. Boarding was disorganized, and we left a little late but made up the time in the air.

If anyone cares, 1:50 is enough to do immigration for connecting flights to LBA early in the morning, and customs at LBA hardly looked like it was even a thing.

thanks--I'v had similar name concerns when a ticket combined my first and middle names, but nothing ever came of it. I will hope to encounter the right people changing gates! at Newark. I just got Global Entry approval so that should speed things up too.
Hi. Arriving in TB from Dublin at 1515 on Friday 9th. We will have pre-cleared immigration & customs in Dublin, and will be connecting to 1728 flight to PIT departing TC.
Is that enough time for connection? Can we connect from TB to TC (flying United) airside without going back thru security.
I'm fairly sure you'll have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You should have plenty of time.
I just did something similar. I had 3:15 to make the connection, and I was through pretty quickly, even stopping at United check-in because they wouldn't let me check in online for a flight that began with Aer Lingus. I made a much shorter trip from one secured section of TB to another. That security line moved pretty slowly around 1600.
I will be traveling from DEL to EWR an Connecting to CUN, Mexico. DO i need to go thru immigration and customs at EWR? do I need to collect and re-checkin my bags?
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.
