  • GLA - MCO via EWR...leave terminal?
    Sep 7, 2016
    I am flighting from Glasgow (GLA) to Orlando (MCO) via Newark (EWR). I have a 3hr layover with both flights arriving and departing from terminal C. (United Airlines). After I have cleared immigration and re-checked my bags, can I leave the terminal? I only ask as I have a nasty habit and know that the only smoking areas are outside the terminal and the thought of not having a cigarette for 14 hours fills me wtih dread.


    Yes, when you clear customs and re-check your bags then you will be outside the secure area and free to go where you want, but you really don't have a lot of time to spare.


    you don't have to get your bags as they will automatically be transferred to Orlando flight, you will only have to go through immigration so if it's not busy and all flights are running to time you will be able to have a couple of smokes but be careful because you will have to come back in through airport security and it can be really busy at times. I'm making the same trip with United but I'm flying from Belfast


  • BHX to MCO via EWR
    Sep 5, 2016
    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.


  • EDI to ORD thru EWR
    Sep 5, 2016
    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!

    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.


  • Montreal, Canada TO Newark, NJ TO San Diego, CA
    Sep 3, 2016
    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.


  • Connecting International to Domestic
    Sep 1, 2016
    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.


  • Connecting from Terminal A to Terminal C in 1hr 20m
    Aug 31, 2016
    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.


  • Going out
    Aug 31, 2016
    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.


  • connecting flight times
    Aug 29, 2016
    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.


  • doubt on connection flight. do I can get put to the airport lounge?
    Aug 25, 2016
    I will flirt from Bogotá to Amsterdam. I'm taking a connection flight on Newark. I have a friend who lives on NY and I wanna know if I can meet him on the airport before my flight


    How long of a connection do you have? Once you clear US Immigration and Customs in Newark you will be outside security and can meet your friend there.


    I will be from 350pm to 650. What do you think ? :)


    I personally don't think that's enough time to be worth it unless he lives very close to the airport. You'll get out of customs at about 5 and will have to go back to the security line at about 5:20


  • Returning from Brussels to Panama via Newark
    Aug 25, 2016
    I am returning from Brussels in Europe to Panama in Central America via Newark. I have 2:15 hours for the connection and I am only coming with carry on. Two weeks ago took me 3 hours to get through Houston during a connection so I am concerned that 2:15 hours is not enough at this time of the year in Newark...


    This is enough time, as long as your flight from Brussels is on time.


  • From IND to VCE through EWR
    Aug 24, 2016
    I will travel from Indianapolis IND to Venice VCE through EWR. I will arrive at terminal A in EWR and will leave from terminal C with 55 minutes available for the connection. Is it feasible? Can I go from terminal A to terminal C avoiding customs? How much time does it take to do this connection? Thank you!


    It's possible. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. There is a shuttle bus inside security from A to C.


  • layover time newark to las vegas
    Aug 23, 2016

    If both tickets are on the same reservation that is plenty of time.


    thanks ZAP. both flights are with united but im booking them separately, i can chose 3 hour or 7 hours


    3 hours should be enough time, especially if you don't have checked bags or you get your checked bags tagged through to Las Vegas.


    really helpful thank you ZAP
