  • Transit from international to domestic
    Mar 27, 2015
    Hi, United Airlines just changed my flight rout from Copenhagen to Denver. I will now have 1 hour and 25 minutes from arrival to departure at Newark. I will fly in from Frankfurt, arrive at 02.14 pm, and departe for Denver at 03.40 pm. Will this be enough time? Will i have to claim my luggage, go through customs, security and check in my luggage again? Thank you for your help. Katrine


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, re-check your baggage at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 1 hr 25 minutes is 5 minutes below the minimum international to domestic connection time at Newark. You can contact your travel agent or United to request a later flight to Denver since it was an involuntary schedule change. There should be no fee for the change.

    Is 1 hour 25 minutes adequate to transfer in Newark from Air Canada arriving from Vancouver to Lufthansa operated by United departing for Barcelona?


    That should barely be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. You need to take the AirTrain from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security. Your bags will be transferred automatically.


    Thanks - that's more or less what I expected


  • Connecting Flight
    Mar 19, 2015
    I arrive Terminal C and have 45 mins to connect to my departing flight in Terminal A. Is it possible to go from terminal C to A without having to go through security? How long does this typically take?


    United does run a shuttle bus inside security between C and A, but it could take up to 20 minutes, so your first flight better be on-time if you have a chance of making your connection.


  • International to Domestic transfer in 40 minutes??
    Mar 19, 2015
    United just dropped my originally scheduled EWR to BWI flight after I return from Dublin. The newly assigned flight (on a puddle-jumper) departs 40 minutes after the scheduled landing time on the flight from DUB. I think this is all but impossible to do taking into account customs, different terminal, etc. Am I missing something?


    Yes, you are missing something. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Tahnk you, ZAP! I feel better about that now...........


  • Customs and baggage
    Mar 19, 2015
    My daughter is coming into Newark from Stockholm with a baby. She is flying Continental and her connecting flight is also Continental. She will be coming into terminal C. After Customs does she need to get her bags and re-check them? If she's still in a Continental flight to Palm Beach I am hoping she doesn't. She has a 1:35 minute time frame. Thank you.


    Continental Airlines no longer exists. It is called United Airlines and has been for the past 3 years. Yes, upon arrival in Newark she will have to go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the transfer desk, then if she arrived in Terminal B, take the AirTrain to Terminal C, then go through security. She barely has enough time if her first flight is on-time.


  • Walk between Terminals
    Mar 20, 2015
    I am flying from CDG to FLL on United. I have 2h15 min layover. How long a walk is it from terminal B to terminal C? Will I have time? I am flying Business Class if that makes a difference.


    You cannot walk from B to C. You take the AirTrain. The Airtrain itself takes less than 5 minutes. Yes 2 hrs 15 mins should be enough for your connection.


    Thank you!


  • Heathrow - Newark - Syracuse
    Mar 18, 2015
    I am flying from Heathrow into Newark then have a connecting flight to Syracuse all booked through United. I have a 96 minute connection time and am aware I need to collect my bags. Where do I recheck my bags and how to I go about transferring terminals and immigration and security?


    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 immediately after customs. Currently all flights to Syracuse depart from terminal A. So after you re-check your bags, follow signs to the airtrain to Terminal A. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Terminal Connections between A and C
    Mar 18, 2015
    I will arrive at terminal A from Miami, if I go up to the Airtran from Terminal A to Terminal C, how long the entire ride takes between the 2 terminals?


    It shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes.


  • Venice to Montreal to Newark to Charleston
    Mar 17, 2015
    How much time do I need in Newark ? Or, can part of the Customs/Immigration be done in Montreal prior.


    Montreal has US Immigration and Customs preclearance. An hour is enough time in Newark.


    If that is the case in Montreal, how much time will I need there ???


    60-90 minutes


  • International flight lands in Newark connecting to Chicago
    Mar 16, 2015
    I am taking a flight Venice to Newark to Chicago. When we get off the plane in Newark do we retrieve our bags, go through customs and then get on our domestic flight?


    Yes, 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 if you arrived in B, you'll take the AirTrain to C, then go through security and to your flight to Chicago.


  • Do I have enough time
    Mar 15, 2015
    Hi. There will be 12 of us traveling from Heathrow to Orlando with a connection in Newark. The connection to Orlando has been brought forward by 30 minutes so we no only have 75 minutes to make the next flight. Will this be enough time bearing in mind we have 3 children and an 85 year old with us?


    Sorry forgot to add this is all through United.


    No, that is not enough time. You need to contact your travel agent or United and request an earlier flight from Heathrow or later flight to Orlando. They are required to provide this due to the involuntary schedule change.


    Mar 16, 2015
    I´m coming in from KEF (Icelandair), not a US citicen, have 2 hr 14min layover time, then depart with United towards Canada. Will these 2 hrs be enough time for everything?


    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together? If separately that will be difficult.


    On separate tickets with checked bags, that is not enough time. Without checked bags it might barely be possible.


  • Separate Carriers: Domestic and Intl
    Mar 14, 2015
    For some savings, I am separating my flights from Savannah to Lisbon, Portugal into separate tickets; one domestic, one international. So I presume, I have to claim my bags in A terminal and then recheck them in B terminal for the intl flight. Is this a big problem? Thanks.


    Not a big problem. Just leave at least 2 hours for your connection, preferably a little more.


  • YYZ - EWR - HNL
    Mar 12, 2015
    All flights are with United. Leaving from Toronto and we have a 1hr 5min layover in EWR before hopping onto another plane to HNL. First, is that enough time between flights. Second, would we have to claim our luggage and go thru checkin/secuirty again? Assuming we would be at Terminal C?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will not do anything with your bags in Newark. Assuming your flight from Toronto is operated by a United Express Dash 400 it will arrive in Terminal C and both of your flights will be in Terminal C. All you will have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • DEN - EWR - GLA
    Mar 11, 2015
    Arriving in EWR from DEN at 6:43 on 4/8. United ticket shows 47 minutes to connect to 7:30 flight to GLA. United scheduled the service and ticket so surely 47 minutes is enough time to get to the proper terminal. Can you please confirm? Thanks


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.


    Thank you
