Hi,

I am flying in from BHX (UK) to MCO via EWR. I have a 1hr 45 minute window to make my connection. Is this feasible and if so do I have to collect my checked bags and then re-check. Does re-checking involve queuing again with all regular customers or do I have a different route as i am connecting?

First time I've needed to do this so want to make sure I know what I am doing!

Thanks

Glenn
That will be very difficult. The re-check desk will be right after you clear customs and is separate from the regular check in counter.
Flying back from EDI to EWR terminal B, then flying out of EWR terminal C to ORD. 90 minute layover with no check luggage. Is this possible to make?
It's all United.
With no checked baggage it's not impossible, but it will still be difficult. If you miss your connection, United has hourly flights from Newark to Chicago.
I'm doing the same but WITH checked luggage.
1. first, do I need to pick up my own bags at EWR to bring to my connecting flight or are the bags checked through (all United flights on one reservation)?
2. second, is there a way to get my own checked bags at EWR between connections in this situation (I have relatives in New Jersey that I'd like to give the checked luggage to and not bring them to ORD)
JCL, your bags will be tagged to your final destination but in Newark you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. At this point instead you could give the bags to your relatives instead. Then you go to Terminal A or C on the airtrain, through security and to your departure gate.
Travelling with United from Yyz to Shannon, via EWR. Arrive in terminal A, depart terminal C 3hrs later. Do I have to collect my bags or will they go straight through from Yyz to Shannon?
No, you do not have to claim your bags. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.
I am flying from EDI into EWR and then have 1hr 45min before a connecting flight to BNA. All flights with United. Will that be enough time?
Flying from LAX next May to MAN Manchester UK with United Airlines on UA642 which arrives at 18.36 and my connecting flight is UA81 which leaves at 19.30 do i have enough time to make the connection or will it be sprint finish. Ive run through so many airports in the past but feel like im now getting to old!
Traveling United from MCO TO EWR ARRIVE TERMINAL C
DEPART TO PEK TERMINAL B. Air China.
I HAVE ONE HOUR FIFTY MINUETS AND HAVE CHECKED LUGGAGE.
WILL I HAVE TO GET MY LUGGAGE, WILL I HAVE TIME?
If both tickets are on the same reservation you have enough time and don't have to do anything with your bags. You just have to take the shuttle or airTrain to Terminal B.
Hi,

I will be travelling from Montreal, Canada to San Diego,CA through Newark. I have a European Passport. Will I need to get my checked bags and go through US Customs again in Newark before continuing with my connection to San Diego?

Thanks,

Ianno
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal C. If you arrive in Terminal A, United runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal C.
Flying with Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Columbus through EWR. How can I switch terminals? Do I have to recheck my bags? Any information could help. Thanks in advance.
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take the AirTrain to your departure terminal (A or C) and then go through security and to your departure gate. Note that the second flight is operated by United Express.
Flying from ARN to ORD through EWR. I have one and a half hours to get to connecting flight. I do have a checked bag. Flying United both legs. Will I make this?
It will be very difficult even if everything goes smoothly.
Flying with United from DCA to EWR, and then EWR to HKG. Will 1hr 20mn enough time? Will I need to go through security checkpoint when going from Terminal A to C?
That is enough time. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.
Hello! I will be flying from Shannon (Ireland) to Mexico and stopping at Newark for six hours. I was wondering if I would be able to go out and meet with someone and how long before the flight should I be going through security again.
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon so when you get to Newark you will be free to go where you want. You should be back at the security checkpoint about 3 hours before your flight to Mexico.
Will I have to re-check my bags or will they go straight on the other flight?
You don't have to do anything with your bags.
I have booked a holiday to Las Vegas which involves flying from Birmingham UK to Newark on United Airlines, then catching a connecting flight to Las Vegas.
On first landing in the USA, do we have to clear immigration and customs, and recheck our bags before boarding the connecting flight? Also the next flight is in another terminal (C, we are arriving at terminal B).
I am worried that the 90 minutes between flights will not be long enough for us to make the connecting flight, but the holiday company just says that it is a legal connection time. What happens if we miss the connecting flight?
Please can anyone provide any advice.
Yes, 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 and to your departure gate. This is a legal connection but it is very difficult.
