  • Terminal A to Terminal B; tomorrow 12/2
    Dec 1, 2015
    Help please! Flying United Express BNA-EWR, should arrive terminal A2; connecting to Lufthansa to FRA at B3. United website shows a shuttle between A, B, and C, but not for sure if it's post security at B? Layover is scheduled for 2. 25 hours, but the weather looks poor for tomorrow, (like today's is with 1.5 hours ground holds). Need to know what I'm in for. I'm also recovering from a foot injury, so my pace is slow at the moment. I do have Global Traveler /Trusted Traveler number. UA customer line told me today that I have to get my LH boarding pass at EWR; if I cannot access B3 post-security, how am I supposed to get through security without a boarding pass? Thanks for helping out!


    The United shuttle bus does run inside security from A2 to B3, so you won't have to go through security at EWR and can get your boarding pass from the gate in Newark, but if both tickets are on the same reservation the United check-in desk in Nashville really should be able to issue it. https://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx


    Thanks for the response, this helps a bunch and I feel better about the connection now! Flew to FRA two + yrs. ago, checked in at MCI onward to LH connection at ORD; UA @ MCI told us they couldn't check us in for LH. Both that and current tix on same reservation, both booked on LH website. Find this odd.


  • Security

    Can i move between terminals once i go through security or do i have to go through security at each terminal?


    United runs a shuttle bus from Terminal C to certain concourses of Terminals B and A. All gates in Terminal C are connected inside security but in Terminals A and B the concourses each have their own checkpoint and are not connected inside security. You can also take the AirTrain outside security.


  • Do we have enough time?
    Dec 23, 2015
    We are travelling from Antigua to Toronto through EWR. We land at Terminal B from Antigua and depart from Terminal A for Toronto. We are flying United first then Air Canada who are Alliance partners - we are on one ticket. We have an hour and 40 min. to make our connection. Will we need to collect our luggage and go through customs before changing terminals or will we be able to stay in transit? Thanks for any info.


    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then change terminals and go through security. You barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks for the response. United has told us we do not have to do this but I figured we did.


    Whoever told you that is horrendously misinformed.


    I was likewise told by United that en route from Europe to SFO through EWR, I would need to go through immigration but not security. Was this also incorrect, or was there a direct shuttle inside security between the international terminal B and domestic terminal C? I had a 40m layover as well, purchased through a third-party site. I nearly missed the flight. TSA and other personnel were not very forgiving and I needed to rely on the kindness of other passengers!


  • Belfast to Orlando via Newark
    Nov 24, 2015
    Hi, flying out on 14 Dec on United (UA76) landing at 14:00 in Terminal B. Our connecting flight is also United (UA434) and is at 17:36 in Terminal C. Can you please advise the following: Do we need to collect our luggage and go through customs and security? How do we get from Terminal B to Termninal C? Do we have to go through security again when we get to Terminal C? Thanks in advance.


    You will arrive in Terminal B, 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 C and go through security. You barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks. Hopefully everything goes smoothly.

    Returning from UK on UA at 12:05p w/connection at 1:35. Do I have to collect luggage and recheck in? Is this enough time.


    Yes, 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 re-check desk, then go to your departure terminal (A or C), then go through security and to your departure gate. 90 minutes is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • POP to EWR to PIT
    Nov 19, 2015
    Hi, I am arriving at EWR from POP (Puerto Plata, DR) on Sat Nov 28 at 6:09pm and departing for PIT at 7:30pm. Both should arrive/depart in terminal C. We will have to go through customs, collect our bags and re-check, etc. Is this enough time? I'm really worried it's not...


    I have decided to try to fit everything into carryons. I also requested to have my seats changed to as far to the front as possible without the additional charge. I hope this will help my situation.


    Without checked bags you should be OK as long as your flight from POP is on-time. You are correct, with checked bags it would have been quite difficult.


    Thank you!!


  • Arrive terr b dept terr c
    Nov 19, 2015
    I arrive from Edinburgh at about 12.05 and my connection to Orlando from terminal C is at 1.50pm both flights are with United is this enough transfer time.United changed my original connection from 2.30pm so have taken 40 mins off of my transfer time.I arrive on Sat 28th Nov so will the airport be busy with people travelling home after thanks giving.


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Saturday after thanksgiving is actually a bit of a slow travel day.


  • Arrive Terminal C - depart Terminal C
    Nov 15, 2015
    I am arriving Tuesday from England Terminal C, then departing to Costa Rica Terminal C - will my bags be checked through, or do I have to collect them and check them in again?


    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • terminal a to c
    Nov 15, 2015
    In a connected fly by united. How do i get to the c from the a?


    United runs a shuttle bus inside security between C and A.


  • 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.


    Nov 11, 2015
    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
