  • Terminal B to Terminal C
    Dec 8, 2014
    Hi all! I am flying into EWR from Vienna and my flight arrives at terminal B. I have 1h50 mins layover to catch a flight to Cleveland from terminal C. I am an European citizen. do I have to claim my baggage at EWR? Or just claim them at CLE? Bought my thickets together from orbitz.com


    The reservation was made with United but the international flight is operated by Austrian Airlines. The CLE flight is operated by United.


    Yes, 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 look at the flight monitors, your flight to Cleveland may depart from Terminal A or C. Take the AirTrain to the correct terminal, then go through security and to your gate. You have enough time but not much to spare.


  • connection- do I need to clear security?
    Dec 5, 2014
    I am flying on Air Canada from Montreal (which has US Immigration preclearance) to Newark, arriving at Terminal A. I then fly with United (flight UA1242) to Fort Lauderdale. Do I need to clear security? What is the fastest way to change terminals?


    United does operate a shuttle bus inside security between Terminal A and C. However, it leaves from a different pier of Terminal A than the one you will arrive in on Air Canada. So the best route is to take the AirTrain, which will require you go through security when you reach Terminal C.

    Hi, It seems many people asked similar questions but please answer mine as well. I made my ticket online on one itinerary. I'm arriving with Lufthansa from Brussels to EWR. Later in the evening I'm taking Air Canada flight from EWR to Toronto. I want to make sure to claim my bags in EWR and not have it go straight to Toronto. Thank you!


    First of all Lufthansa does not fly nonstop from Brussels to Newark. If you are flying nonstop, your flight will be on United. Secondly, yes, in Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to your departure terminal via the Airtrain and go through security. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal A.


  • Transfer - need to go through security again?
    Dec 3, 2014
    I have a flight from Dublin to Minneapolis with a layover in Newark. Dublin airport has US customs preclearance (go through US customs in Dublin so you land in the US as a domestic flight). I am wondering if I will need to go through security again when transferring in Newark. Both my flights are with United Airlines. I am specifically wondering for the liquid limit, as I plan to buy my father some Guinness in the Dublin airport duty-free shops, for a Christmas present, and would hate to need to discard it in Newark airport.


    Yes, the Dublin flight arrives in Terminal C and your flight will depart from C or A. United runs a shuttle bus inside security if your flight to MSP departs from Terminal A.


    Sorry, bit confused, because you started your reply with "yes" but then seem like you are saying I would not need to. Do you mean that no, I will not need to go through security again? Many thanks for your knowledgable answer though.


    Sorry that was confusing. The "Yes" meant you were correct. You will not have to go through security in Newark as long as you take the shuttle bus to Terminal A (if you end up needing to go there).


  • Belfast to Orlando via Newark
    Dec 2, 2014
    Hi, I am flying into Newark with a 1 hour 40 minutes connection time from Belfast. A few questions, will I need to claim baggage in EWR or will this travel on to Orlando? Is this enough time to make the connection? we have two small kids with us. What is the normal procedure that will be required of us.


    You will arrive in terminal b or c, go through us immigration, claim your bags, go throu us customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then go to the security checkpoint in terminal c where your flight to Orlando will depart.


  • air train or bus
    Dec 2, 2014
    We have a short turnaround between international flights and domestic connections.... your advice is inconsistent air train or shuttle bus to avoid security . customs and immigration is a evil necessary evil but checked once and a tight timeline.... so train or bus???


    I think I've been pretty consistent - if you're coming in from an international flight and already outside the secure area when you clear customs, the Airtrain is fastest. If you're coming off a domestic flight and therefore in the secure area, the bus is fastest.


    Sorry If it was a little off hand but you have just proved to me that tha staff at Manchester do not know what they are on about. W R O N G on all accounts so doing my own research. DoHLS staff are not known for their helpfulness......


  • Baggage Check
    Dec 1, 2014
    I'm flying in to Newark on American from Chicago then taking TAP to Lisbon connecting to Rome. Do I check my bag in Chicago all the way through to Rome or just to Newark and then recheck it?


    If you purchased your tickets together they will be tagged through to Lisbon and you will not have to claim them in Newark. Otherwise you will have to claim them from American and take them to the TAP check-in counter to re-check.


  • From london to ottawa
    Nov 26, 2014
    Hi! I'm leaving london and have a 1h40min connection time from EWR to YOW (ottawa). Is this enough time to make it? Do I have to claim my luggage or is it already checked in for me?


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to your departure terminal (likely A) on the AirTrain then go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time but don't have much time to spare in case of delays.


  • Shuttle from terminal C to B
    Nov 26, 2014
    Hi, Nest month, we are taking international flight from terminal B. We will arrive terminal C in domestic flight. Is there a shuttle bus we can take from C to B to avoid security checkin again at terminal B?


    United does have a shuttle bus from C to B.


  • 55 min connection terminal C1 and C3
    Nov 26, 2014
    I'm flying into Newark on a Wednesday arriving at 8:15am into C3 and out of C1 55 minutes later. I'm very nervous as it looks on the map as though there are security checkpoints in terminal C between 1 and 3. Can you tell me if there are securitiy checkpoints between C1 and C3, if Wednesday mornings tend to be congested and if 55 minutes seems like a doable connection? The next flight leaving to our destination wouldn't be until the next day.


    All gates in C are connected inside security. You should have enough time.


  • International flight with a connecting flight at EWR
    Nov 24, 2014
    Hi! I'll be flying from Stockholm to Newark for a connecting flight to Nashville on Sunday. My flight will arrive at terminal B 12.10 pm, and I hear Sunday afternoons are amongst the busiest times to travel. My connecting flight leaves from terminal C at 3.20 pm, but in between, I've got to go through passport control, pick up my back, go through US customs check and check my bag again, get to my next terminal and go through security at the next terminal and find my gate. I've travelled to the States three times before and it's gone well, however this is the first time with a layover in NY. Is it going to be enough time with 3 hours and 10 minutes? I've previously had a delayed flight and had to stay overnight in Toronto to wait for a new scheduled flight the next morning, and gosh do I want to avoid that situation again.


    Pick up my bag*


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • arrival procedures
    Nov 23, 2014
    Flying from London Ontario Canada to Orlando Feb,1st 2015 arriving at Newark @7.29 AM terminal "A" with a connecting flight to Orlando @ 10.AM terminal "C". This will be my first time in the Newark airport, can anyone tell me what the procedure would be after arriving at terminal "A".


    Since London, Ontario does not have US Immigration preclearance, your flight from YXU will arrive in Terminal C. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.


  • Terminal B to C
    Nov 23, 2014
    Me and my girlfriend are lying from Oslo and landing in Newark terminal B and we have 1h32min to get to terminal C and we know that we need to pick up our luggage and leave it to the next place. Is it possible for that short time? We were told we will need to run all the time :)


    Yes, that's about right, it's possible but it depends on your first flight being on-time and being as quick as possible.

    Hi All, appreciate your help. We are flying to Costa Rica via EWR with a 1 year old on United. we have 4 respectively 3 hours transfer time in EWR. Any views on whether this should be enough? Are there any playing areas or other children facilities in EWR? thanks...


    If you arrive at EWR from a US Airport you would arrive with United at either Terminals B or C; and your departure would be in Terminal C (TC). (If arriving from overseas, you would also need to go through go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bags before proceeding to your connecting terminal/ gate.) If you need to transfer to another terminal, board the Airtrain, but you need to go through security check at connecting terminal before proceeding to your gate. Your transfer time is quite sufficient.


    HI, thanks for your reply. We are coming from an overseas UA flight. Do you know about any children facilities as well? thanks,
