I only have 2 hours to make a connecting flight from Ireland. Will there be enough time to get to the correct terminal, recheck baggage and clear immigration?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. If both flights are on United then all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time if that's the case.
Hi, I'm flying from Hong Kong to Ithaca through Newark on a United flight. I know that my HK-> Newark flight lands at Terminal B, but my Ithaca flight departs at Terminal C. Will I need to claim my checked in baggages and drop them off again at Terminal C, or will they go straight to Ithaca?
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after you clear Customs, then take the Train to your departure terminal and go through security.
On January 9, 2018, I will be on a TAP flight from Lisbon. (TP201). With a 2 hr 235 min stopover to TP8530 operated by United, will I have time to get there from Terminal B, through customs and to Terminal C? How should I proceed? Will I indeed have to pass customs here in Newark, or maybe upon arrival at IAH?
Yes, you have the procedure correct. You clear US Immigration and Customs in Newark. You should have enough time.
My 16 year old is flying Austrian Air from Vienna to Newark on a wednesday in June. She has 1hr 50 min to go through customs and then tram to United terminal to catch united flight to denver.
I believe she will have to go through customs and then bring her checked bag to united to re-check in, correct? Is 1hr 50 enough time?
If it's the same reservation she can re-check her bags at the re-check desk right after clearing Customs. She has just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you!!!
Hi. I'm flying from KEF to SAN with a stop for connection at EWR. I have 1.5 hours at EWR between arrival from KEF and departure of next flight on SW. I have global entry and no checked bags. Is that enough time to get through customs and catch flight? Thank you in advance.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Check in online for your Southwest flight before leaving Iceland.
landing with EL AL airline at terminal B, connection to Hawaii with United from terminal C. How long is it take and is it eny direction you can give me to make it possible ? ( we have 2.5 hours. Thank's a lot !
You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Worried there is not enough connection time?? Do you think I can make this connection or should I change it? SFO to EWR 1 HR 11MIN connection to EWR TO PVD on united... airline says possible terminal change..
Looks like it comes in at terminal B level 1 and may depart terminal C Level 2 or 3
That is enough time. All United gates are connected by buses inside security if you do need to change terminals.
Hello arriving from Miami tomorrow Terminal C, with a United Express Connection in Terminal A. The connection time is only 45 mins. What is the fastest , most efficient way to get there, assuming there is time? Can you walk between terminals without re-entering security? Apparently there is a shuttle bus but does it run frequently? thanks
Yes, there is a bus by gate C71 which is the only way to get between A and C inside security. It's the only way this connection is possible.
Thank you ! does the shuttle run frequently do you know? Like every 5 or 10 mins?
Yes, it runs frequently since the vast majority of passengers flying on United Express flights in and out of Terminal A need to use it.
I have a connection of only 50 minutes between UA4819 (Ithaca -> Newark) and UA54 (Newark -> Paris) tomorow. Arrival and departure are at the same terminal C, but I'm afraid with the possible security check to miss my second plane. Will I have to go through the security check for the connection? Is 50min enough if my first flight is not delayed? Thanks in advance for your answers.
There is no security check. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you very much for your quick answer!
I am flying American from Atlanta to Paris with a connection in Newark. Will I have to collect my checked luggage when I get to Newark and go through security again to take my flight to Paris. American arrives in terminal A but international flights leave from terminal B.
Correction...it is a United flight.
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, likely both in Terminal C. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
