  • Connections in Newark - do i have to go through security again
    Nov 9, 2014
    I am connecting in Newark to a domestic flight. I originated in Halifax, but cleared U.S. customs and immigration there. Do I have to go through security again to make the connection.


    No, you won't have to go through security as long as, if you have to change terminals, you use the United shuttle bus instead of the Airtrain.


  • Connection times for Memphis
    Nov 7, 2014
    I am flying from London Heathrow to Memphis via Newark. I booked with United Airlines via an agent. I have 1 hour 45 minutes. The Agent says my suitcase is checked-in through to Memphis. My family says different and that 1 hour 45 minutes is nowhere near enough to collect my bag, do customs/immigration/passport control, re check-in my bag, go through security, change terminals. I fear they may be right but need more info before going back to the airline/agent. Any help appreciated.


    Your travel agent is wrong, however, 1 hr 45 minutes may be enough time but is definitely pushing it. 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 you will take the Airtrain to your departure terminal, likely Terminal A, and go through security.

    I am leaving toronto airport on 12th of nov by air canada and taking a connecting flight to zurich by swiss air. the time between the flights is 96 mins. is it enough to board the next flight? also do i have to recheck my baggage at newark airport? i am too stressed out as i am travelling with my 4 yr old son. thanks in advance


    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. If you purchased a single reservation you will not have to do anything with your bags in Newark. You will, however, have to exit Terminal A where you will arrive and take the AirTrain to Terminal B and go through security.


  • enough time for connection?
    Oct 26, 2014
    i'm flying in from denver to newark and connecting in a different terminal to fly to copenhagen. are my bags checked all the way through or do i have to collect them and recheck for the international flight. i have 1 1/2 hrs or 3 hours for the connection, depending on which flight i suggest. is an 1 1/2 hrs enough time and what about the baggage?


    If you did not book both flights on one ticket, or used 2 airlines which do not belong to the same Alliance, or do not code-share - you would need to pick up your bags & re-check them in with the second airline. You may also have to transfer to another terminal, depending on the airlines you take, which necessitates taking the Airtrain & going through security check again. Open www.ifly.com/ewr, click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, & scroll down to the detailed text for more info.


    If you are buying the tickets together on United and SAS you won't have to do anything with your bags in Newark on your way to Copenhagen.


  • Glasgow to Newark to Los Angeles

    Can you tell me how long the airtrain takes to get from terminal b to terminal c. We have 3 hours and not brisk walkers. I am not sure if the bags are checked right through. Thanks for any info. I think this will be very stressful


    You have plenty of time and should not stress about your upcoming trip: On arrival at TB you will need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, and go through customs clearance. If you purchased your trip on one ticket, or your second airline belongs to the same Alliance (like 'Star Alliance') or has a code-share with the first one, your bags will automatically be transferred - (if not, you would need to take your bags along to TC & check them in there. The Airtrain makes continuous runs between the 3 terminals & takes only minutes; however, on arrival at TC you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ewr, click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • From STL to EWR with United and from EWR to DUS with Lufthansa
    Oct 26, 2014
    I am flying from St.Louis to Newark with United Airlines (arriving in Terminal C) and then fly (from Terminal B) with Lufthansa from Newark to Dusseldorf. When I check in in St.Louis, will I get my boarding passes for the second flight with Lufthansa as well? The tickets were purchased at the same time, so I guess my luggage will be checked straight through to Dusseldorf, so, with 2 hours 33 minutes at EWR, I have enough time to get from Terminal C to Terminal B?


    Yes, your bags will be checked through to DUS and you will get both boarding passes in STL. Note that you may arrive in Terminal A at EWR. You should have plenty of time.


    Excellent! Thank you very much! If I arrive in Terminal A instead of C, getting to terminal B is basically the same, right? Taking the train and then going through security again in Terminal B?


    Yes, the procedure would be similar.
