  • 2.5 hour United transfer from Toronto to Trinidad, baggage & terminal?
    Jan 7, 2015
    Since our bags pre-cleared at Toronto airport customs & immigration, will we still need to reclaim & recheck baggage at Newark? Jan30, what terminal will UA 4528 from Toronto land at, & different terminal for UA1505 to Port of Spain? Is only 2hr 21min for the transfer rather risky? or since departure is 5min to midnight, will airport be less crowded? Thanks!


    You will not have to do anything with your baggage in Newark. You will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals. You should have plenty of time.


    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? PS Should I still try calling United at Newark to confirm? (in Asia now) so really appreciate the help!


    You need to claim bags on the Trinidad->US->canada leg, but not on the way to Trinidad since you will pre-clear US Customs in Toronto. There's no need to call United.


  • 90 min connection

    Landing in terminal B from LHR (London heathrow) at 18:05. I am Canadian resident (can go through US citizen immigration). Looking to make a flight to London ON Canada with UA at 19:35 out of terminal c. Possible ?


    All of the above is at Newark


    Flight to London, Ont will actually depart from Terminal A. That's possible, but barely. If there's an earlier flight from London I'd take that instead.


  • From bogota to Newark to hamburg with united
    Dec 27, 2014
    Hello everybody, I'm travelling from bogota to Newark only for transfer and then travelling to hamburg. I have 1hour52min time to transfer and catch my connecting flight to hamburg. Do you think this is enough time? Do you have any idea which terminal I'm arriving and from which terminal I'm departing? I'm flying with united from bogota and also to hamburg. Do I have to pick up the luggage even if it's the same company I'm traveling with? Heeeeelppppppp and thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will likely be in terminal c, but you may arrive in terminal b. Yes, you have to claim your baggage to go through US customs then re-check it at the transfer desk.


  • From Heathrow to Orlando Via Newrk
    Dec 26, 2014
    I will be flying in from London Heathrow to arrive at Newark on Sunday at 2pm with just 90 minutes to catch my connection to Orlando. My question is which terminal do flights from London usually land in, and does the baggage have to be re checked in at all times, even if there is no need to change terminals. I will be flying to Orlando from terminal C.


    You could arrive in terminal b or c. Yes, you have to claim your baggage to go through customs regardless of terminal. You can re-check it t the transfer desk immediately after customs. You barely have enough time.


  • Terminal c to terminal B
    Dec 26, 2014
    From Orlando to Newark by United, landing at terminal C. Then to go to terminal B to catch Lufthansa. Less than 2 hours time will we make it?


    Flying from Orlando by United, to go to India via Newark by Lufthansa. Security clearance neede?


    Follow signs at the airport. United does operate a shuttle bus inside security.


  • Connecting time from Term. B to A
    Jan 7, 2015
    Hi, I´ll be travelling with United on March 19 ( a Thursday) from Berlin , Germany via Newark to Charleston, SC with my 6 year old. The flight times have just been changed so the connecting time will be only 1:35, including immigration and baggage. Arrival is Term. B, connecting flight Term. B. United says that should be enough time..I´m a bit sceptical. Should I run the risk or book a later flight to Charelston 6,5 hrs. later? Anybody with some good advice?


    I think you have a good chance of making it. However, note that the flight from Berlin to Newark frequently makes a fuel stop and arrives several hours late during the winter. Because of that you might want to ask for the later flight, which they should give you because of the schedule change.


    Thanks for the prompt reply! A fuel stop? I was under the impression it was a direct flight? How often does this happen? Yes, they would give me the later flight if I change my mind within the next 2 days, but they also said I could take the risk of missing the earlier flight and then change to the later flight if I don´t make it. It is really hard to decide at this point.


    Yes, the Berlin-Newark flight makes a fuel stop about half the time and arrives 2-3 hours late during the winter. Yes those are your options.


    Hi ZAP,sorry to ask again, but I just realized that the connecting flight to CHS will be out of Terminal A, arrival from Berlin in B. Assuming there´s no need for a fuel stop (March 19 is almost spring, at least in Europe), and the kid and I really hurry, is there nevertheless the realistic chance of making the connection? Which means of transport do I take between terminals and where do I re-check in our luggage?


    P.S Connecting time was 92 minutes


  • Terminal Connection A-C
    Dec 18, 2014
    Hi there, I'm travelling in from Toronto landing at terminal A (Air Canada) I am having to transfer to terminal C to fly to Glasgow (United) What is the best way of doing this terminal change - Train or Bus? Do I need to clear security and customs to do this transit? Where does the bus/train leave from? Thanks for your help in advance


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. In Newark, you can't make that transfer inside security as the United shuttle bus from A to C leaves from a different pier of A than your Air Canada flight will arrive at. So the best route for you will be to take the AirTrain from A to C, then go through security and to your departure gate. Follow signs to the train.




  • minimum time for connecting flight to flight
    Jan 7, 2015
    I am from Costa Rica. It is this enough time for a connection at Newark Airport? or is it too risky? United Airlines - (UA) 1081 12:35pm, Thu Jan 15 • San Jose (SJO) 6:45pm, Thu Jan 15 • Newark (EWR) Layover: 1h 50m in Newark United Airlines - (UA) 82 8:35pm, Thu Jan 15 • Newark (EWR) 9:20pm, Fri Jan 16 • Delhi (DEL)


    That is probably enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal C, but you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs and security in between flights.


    i am flying from Boston to Shanghai through Newark,both taking United Airlines. will arive at terminal C at 8:48am and leave at 9:55am at the same terminal. Do i have enough time to go through the US customers and security ?


    You do not have to go through US Customs and secondary security when leaving the US. All you have to do in Newark on your way to Shanghai is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Customs?
    Dec 17, 2014
    I will be flying with United Airlines leaving Calgary Canada, going thru Newark with final destination Orlando. I land at terminal c and have 30 minutes to get to terminal a for my connection. Will this be enough time? Thanks


    I am on united the whole trip I actually land at A and fly out of C. Will my luggage be put thru to orlando or do I have to collect it at Newark


    Note that your first flight will be operated by Air Canada. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. In Newark you do not have to do anything with your baggage, just take the AirTrain from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security. 30 minutes is barely enough time.


  • Terminal C to A. Assistance possible?
    Dec 18, 2014
    Hello Our two 13 year old daughters will be connecting from Oslo to Montreal, and will only have 1h30 to change from terminal C to A. 1) What exactly is to be expected, point by point? Will their suitcases have enough time to follow? Should they take the bus or the Air Train? 2) Could they seek any assistance from someone there to make their connection less stressful? My concern is a line up at the customs, and them being to shy to say they are in a hurry.


    Forget my question about the luggage. I understand they will have to retrieve them before taking the Air Train. It will be faster if they keep their suitcases as cabin luggage.


    If they only have cabin baggage, They will arrive in Terminal B or C (B is actually most likely), go through US Immigration and Customs, then take the AirTrain to their departure terminal, A. They have enough time if their first flight is on-time. There are no "guides" to help them through the process, but there are plenty of people around both working for Immigration and for the Airlines to help.


    Still unsure about the AirTrain thing. If they have to go from terminal C to terminal A (which is the case, not B) isn't it way easier and shorter for them to take the shuttle bus? Then they avoid all the hassle? They will be on United..


    Sorry, it says I've had an answer, but I can't see it


  • Oslo-Newark-New Orleans
    Dec 15, 2014
    Hi, I have 1:45 layover arriving Newark terminal B from Oslo, then a connecting flight from terminal C to New Orleans. Passing customs and re-check ing - do I have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Transfer time.

    I will be flying from MSP to Newark - transfer time 1H10mins for an international flight to LON with United, is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Your flight from Minneapolis may arrive in Terminal A, if so, there is a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal C where your flight to London will depart.


  • Time to clear Customs from CDG Paris through EWR on to IAH
    Dec 10, 2014
    What is the average time to clear customs coming from Paris, France connecting to Houston?


    The minimum connection time is 90 minutes, but to be safe I'd want closer to 2 hours.

    I fly next Wednesday from Munich and only have an hour and a half layover to Montreal. Is there anyways I will make this flight? Is it possible to get assistance on ground to make sure I can make this flight on time?


    Yes, you have enough time. There is no assistance unless you are handicapped. If you tell me more about the airlines you are flying I can help you more with connection instructions.


    Thank you. I fly from Muninch on Lufthansa and arrive into Newark around 6 30 pm. I have exactly an hour and a half to catch my flight to montreal on air canada.


    OK, so you will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A, get your Air Canada boarding pass if you don't already have it, then go through security and to your departure gate.
