Hi, I'm travelling to EWR from LHR and then to BUF, I've only got 2 hours to make the connection. The flights have been booked separately. Will that be enough time to clear immigration, collect my bag, check it and then clear security again?

On two separate reservations that's probably not enough time.
How much tim do you consider as necessary for transfer time? Is 1.55 H for a flight on United coming from Francfort , than a flight to San José Costa Rica?

thank you!
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

We have a 1h35m connection arriving at terminal B with SAS from Oslo (OSL) and departing on United from Terminal C to Fort Lauderdale (FLL). The trip is on one ticket.

Is it enough time? And do you recommend taking the Airtrain or entering through security in terminal B and taking the shuttle to C?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. I would take the AirTrain to C and go through security there. The new C security checkpoints are very good.
I am flying from Dublin, Ireland (DUB) to Newark (EWR), but my connection time to Orlando, Florida (MCO) is only 35 minutes. If I only have a carry on, and I have been precleared in Dublin, will I be treated as a domestic arrival, or will I have to go through customs again? Should I change to a flight with a longer connection time?
Correct, all you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 35 minutes is possible but leaves no time to spare if the flight from Dublin is delayed at all.
I flew from Denver. Next to Stockholm with SAS. Can I leave from terminal C to terminal B without transport? How long is it?
There is a shuttle from gate C71 to the SAS gates sin Terminal B inside security. If you have 60 minutes you should have enough time as long as your flight from Denver is on-time.
Hi i am travelling from heathrow in october and have to change at newark. We land at terminal b and the next flight is at terminal c how long is it likely to take me to get to terminal c
For an International to domestic connection at Newark you need at least 2 hours.
So it takes a while to get from one terminal to the other? Do we have to get a shuttle?
You take the airtrain. However, a lot of time will be consumed going through US Immigration, customs, and security.
We will be returning to UK from Orlando to Heathrow with 45 minute change over in Newark in October.
Is this allowing enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi, I'm flying tomorrow from Vancouver (YVR) to Dublin (DUB) with Air Canada/United Airlines Codeshare connecting in Newark but I've only got 45mins between flights. I didn't know I would have to get my bags again in Newark, I thought they would be checked thru the whole way in YVR as its a United flight. Do I also have to clear immigration in Newark even though I am only connecting thru to Ireland? I am a NEXUS card holder if that will be any use to me, do you think I have any realistic chance of making my flight given that i will be both landing at and departing from Terminal C.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will be able to use your NEXUS card in Vancouver.
Hi I'm traveling from Shannon to Orlando airport with a connecting flight in Newark. All of my flights are with united airlines, will I have to pick up my bags and re check them in Newark? Thanks!
You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Shannon. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your baggage.
Hi, I am flying from Shannon Ireland with United Airlines to Orlando with a connecting United Airlines flight in Newark. The time to transfer is just over 3 hours. Do I have to pick up my bags in Newark and recheck them in for my flight to Orlando? Will this be enough time? Thank you!
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Shannon. If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Newark. You have plenty of time.
Thanks Zap, your a fantastic help! I posed this a second time because I didn't realise the first one had gone through so please ignore the above post, it's just me again :)
