I land in Newark on April 16 at 7:15 pm on Ethiopian Airlines ET508 from Africa. I'm on a flight on a separate booking form Newark to Toornto on Porter Airlines PD 144 leaving at 8:30 ppm. I believe I land and depart from Terminal B. I will only have carry-on luggage. Will I have to leave security and go through customs, exit, and check back in? Or will I be able to stay in the terminal. Thanks!
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with Porter, go through security and to your departure gate. You do not have enough time to make that connection. Plan on spending the night in Newark.
I won't have any checked bags. Only carry on. Will I still have to go through US immigration to exit and check back in? customs for the Porter flight is in Toronto, not the US.
Yes, you will still have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Newark. You will not make it.
We have a very tight connection between UA 24 (USA pre-cleared in SNN) to a AC 7655. Do we leave the secure area when changing terminals if pre-cleared for the USA? on a Saturday, if that matters.
You do have to leave the secure area because The Air Canada gates are not connected to the United gates inside security, not for any immigration procedures.
Ah. I thought they shuttled between terminals securely. So is there hope that we be able to make it in 50 minute?
I have found out that we don't do any immigration clearing there, but on arrival in Canada. Does that keep us within the secure area?
The shuttle that United runs from Terminal C to A goes to the United Express pier of Terminal A, which is not connected inside security to Air Canada's Pier in Terminal A (Terminal A is an old building). That is why you have to leave the secure area.
I am landing in Newark at 7:35 on United 3670. Next flight is United 1514 at 9:05. Is 1:35 enough time if everything is on scedule. I didn't know if I would have to collect bags and go to security again.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your flight arrives in A, there is a shuttle inside security to Terminal C.
My wife is already nervous flying United tomorrow, but now I see she only has 43 minutes from landing at Gate A24A and then her connecting flight leaving from Gage C103Y. Should she be also nervous about even catching her connection?
Yes, that is a difficult connection. United runs a shuttle from their gates in A to C inside security but even with that everything will have to go perfectly for her to make it.
United express into terminal C to Lisbon terminal B. 1:20 between flights. Do I have to go thru security and collect luggage in EWR?
You don't have to do anything with your bags if both flights are on the same reservation. Just take the shuttle bus from Terminal C to the TAP gates in Terminal B.
I am traveling internationally to Boston, but connects in Newark. I found Newark would be closer. Is it possible to purposely miss the last segment and get out from Newark. I will be entering US customs so I assume I will have access to my luggage at Newark. Thanks!
If it is the last segment of your itinerary, yes, you can claim your bags in Newark, rip the tags off and leave the airport after you clear customs.
I have exactly one hour from arrival to TA, G25 to departure TC, G98 I am flying United, is there a fast way to do this?
United runs a shuttle inside security from their gates in Terminal A to Terrminal C. Use that. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
how long does it take to get from terminal A to B? Have a tight connection... thanks
What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from and to? Are both flights on the same reservation?
I am looking to book a flight to Newark, From CLT - then connecting in Newark to Tel Aviv. All the flights are on UA. Do I have to go out of Security when I arrive in Newark from Charlotte NC, and go back through security again to connect to my flight going to Tel Aviv Israel? I won't book the flight if I do. Thanks for the help
No, you do not have to go through normal TSA security in Newark. If you arrive in Terminal C you just walk to your departure gate and if you arrive in Terminal A you can take a shuttle to C inside security. Note that you will have to go through special Israeli security at the gate, but that is true of any flight to Tel Aviv.
Thank you so vey much, that was very very helpful
My flight UA 1707 has been delayed and will now arrive 6:18 Terminal B.

My second flight departs at 7:05 UA960 Terminal C to Frankfurt.

Is this going to be possible? My flights were already rebooked from Delta to United with the delays yesterday in Georgia.
There is a shuttle inside security from the gates in B to Terminal C. So if you do arrive at 6:18 it is still possible.
