  • 36 minute connection time
    Jan 4, 2014
    I am arriving from Honolulu at 11:50 AM and flying out at 12:26 PM. to Toronto. Both flights are UA. Change in terminals from C to A. 36 minutes. Do I have any chance of catching my flight.


    It will be tough, especially if your Honolulu flight is delayed at all. However, United has lots of later flights to Toronto that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.


  • Quebec to Newark 1h connection
    Dec 31, 2014
    Hi, I'm flying tuesday january 7th I have one hour connection in Newark. I will land in Terminal C at 8AM and fly from terminal C at 9AM also. I can't pre-clear US Custom at Quebec .. Will I have enough time to clear immigration, custom, pick your baggage etc ??


    No, that's not a legal connection as the minimum connection time is 90 minutes in EWR for flights that require going through immigration and customs in EWR. As there's no earlier flight from YQB you can try to get lucky and make the connection, but prepared to be stuck in Newark for awhile if you can't be rebooked or there are no later flights to your destination.


    90 minutes? United Airlines got me on that one I guess?.. I called them earlier and they told me I can make it on time .. maybe they'rnt aware I can't clear immigration and customs at Quebec .. there's no flight later on January 7th ..They gave me the choice to go on January 6th instead and I'd be at Newark at 7:36 AM and leaving at 9:09 .. but I need to book an hotel ..


  • Trip to England, UK January 11,2014
    Dec 29, 2013
    I reserve my flights online using my frequent airline points. I will be flying from Montreal, Canada (YUL) to Newark (EWR) by United Airlines arriving terminal A. Then making a connecting flight from terminal C to London, England UK (LHR) by United Airlines. I looked at my itinerary the time is very tight, I only have approx. 80 minutes to run from A to C, will I have enough time to make my connecting flight? I have a limping leg which will slow me down a little, how far form TA to TC ? also since I travel from Canada do I have to check out my luggages at Newark then check in again for the flight to England? Please advise


    You will pre-clear US Customs and immigration in Montreal. You will not have to claim your baggage in Newark. United runs a shuttle bus that runs inside security from Terminal A to Terminal C. If your first flight is on-time you should have plenty of time for your transfer.


  • Customs and security times at 7am
    Dec 22, 2013
    How much time is it to clear customs on tuesday(24th dec) at 7am? Is this a particular peak time of day ?


    A few flights from South America come in around that time. It's not a heavy peak time of day.


  • 40mins
    Dec 19, 2013
    My travel agency insist 40 mins is enough time for me to connect in newark. I will be arriving from LAX at 4:55pm and hoping on a flight to GVA at 5:35pm. If the terminals are the same, will i have to go through security again, or straight to my departing gate? Thanks


    Your arrival at & departure from EWR depends on which airline(s) you take. While Terminal A is handling all domestic flights, Terminal B handles all international flights. Exception: United uses exclusively Terminal C for some domestic and all international flights and Terminal A for some of its domestic flights. If you need to connect between TA & TC - take the shuttle bus between TA & TC - at TA (near gate A28), TC (near gate C71) - no security check needed. If you need to connect between TA & TB - take the Airtrain, in which case you would need to go through security check first.


    Yes i am flying united all the way through. If i arrive in terminal C and depart from terminal C will i have to go through security once i land in newark


    No, you will not have to go through security, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates in Terminal C are connected beyond security.


  • 40 min connection time possible?
    Dec 19, 2013
    I am coming from Orlanda, with a 40 min connection time in Newark, with a final destination of St. John's, Newfoundland. Is this 40 mins a reasonable time? Do I need to change terminals? I would assume I have to do Customs in St. John's.


    Yes, immigration will be in St. John's. It's doable, but it will be tough if you arrive in Terminal C and your St. John's flight leaves from Terminal A. You won't know until the day of your flight. They ARE connected beyond security by a shuttle bus but it will still be difficult.


  • Customs clearance and passport control
    Dec 17, 2013
    Hi. I am flying soon from Oslo to Newark and then to Orland. Arrival and departure is on Newark terminal C. Will I do customs clearance and passport control in Newark or in Orlando? Will I have to pick up the luggage in Newark?


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, and re-check in Newark, then go to the departure level and go through security and to your departure gate to Orlando.


  • 1h55 flight connection
    Dec 12, 2013
    Hello, I am flying soon from Miami to Newark with united airlines, arriving in terminal C and then I have a connecting flight from terminal B with Swiss airlines. All this should happen in 1h55min, does this sound possible to you? Specially as we need to change terminals and are not flying with the same company?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time. United runs a shuttle that runs on the secure side or you can take the AirTrain (which would require having to go through security in Terminal B). Your bags should be checked through to your Swiss flight.


    Thank you very much for your reply !


  • Delta Lounge
    Dec 9, 2013
    Hi , can you avoid security to go from concourse from B1 to B2 or B3 at Newark terminal B , cause my flight is from B2 and i want to use the delta skyclub before the flight.


    The three satellites of Terminal B are not connected beyond security.


  • Terminal A Gate 36 to Gate A28
    Dec 5, 2013
    Hi Zap, I am arriving at terminal A gate 36 and looking to go to Gate 28 to catch the bus shuttle for Terminal C. Can I walk through the gates A36 to A28 , is there will be security check or in case I have to take air train to go to terminal C. Thanks


    Gate A36 and A28 are not connected beyond security. You'll be best off taking the AirTrain.


  • Connecting EWR to EDI
    Nov 28, 2013
    I'm connecting at EWR. Coming from Orlando and then going to Edinburgh, all on United. I have 1 hour 10 minutes, do I have to go through security again and can I make the connection?


    United uses both Terminals C & A for domestic flights; and Terminal C for international flights. Upon arrival check the overhead screens for your connecting flight and gate number (i.e., gate C-10). If you need to transfer to Terminal A, take the shuttle bus between TA & TC (near gate C71) & at TA (near gate A28), - no security check needed. Your transfer time will suffice.

    Arriving terminal B from UK leaving terminal C for internal US flight, minor travelling alone for 1st time. 2 and half hours between flights. Return flight:arrive and depart terminal C 1 hour between flights. Can you please give step by step instructions, also is sky train better than shuttle and does it drop you at correct level.


    On the way into the US the passenger will have to take the AirTrain as he will be outside security after clearing US Customs. Note that many International flights do arrive in C so he or she may not need to change terminals (if you post the airline I can give you more information). Upon arrival in the US the passenger will go through US immigration, claim baggage, go through US customs, and then drop the baggage off at the re-check desk. Then follow the signs to the Airtrain if necessary, and take it to Terminal C where he or she will go through security and to the gate. However, he or she should also check the monitors as some United Express flights leave from Terminal A. On the way out of the US the passenger will only have to go from his or her arrival gate to their departure gate.


    On arrival at Terminal B of Newark Airport you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag if you (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). To get to your connecting flight, board the Airtrain which serves all pre-security areas of all terminals - meaning you need to go through security check at Terminal C's. Level 3 of TC has 3 security checkpoints leading to airline gate areas C1, C2 & C3 and the Gate level leads to three gate areas: C1is arranged in a Y-shape (gates C70-99); C2 (gates C101-C115); & C3 (gates C120-139). The Shuttle Bus from Terminal C to Terminal A stops at gateway C1, near gate C71. Make sure you look at overhead screens on arrival to find your connecting flight & gate number. You have enough time for both trips (upon your return at TC you simply follow the AirTrain sign to TB & go through security check. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ewr, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Thanks. Edinburgh flight with United, itinerary states arrive TB, then homeward leave TC. Internal leaves TC onward to Buffalo with Republic airlines dba united express (not quite sure what that means), homeward from TC with Commutair dba united express. I hope there will be enough time?


    Your Edinburgh flight will likely arrive in C, not B. The Buffalo flights will also likely operate from C. Sometimes the terminals listed in itineraries are inaccurate.


  • Flying in from glasgow to halifax via newark
    Nov 27, 2013
    What terminal does the halifax flight leave from and is 1.5 lay enough time togo through customs and imgration?


    1.5 hours is pushing it, but is probably possible. The Halifax flights usually leave from Terminal A, so if that's the case then when you go through customs and re-check your bags, you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal A, go back through security and to your gate.


    THanks be myself but as long as i know i can re check before going to termiinla A. AM sure thre flight comes into terminal c from glagsow. left from there on the way out.


  • security wait time

    How is it looking today? How are the lines


  • 1.5 hour layover
    Nov 24, 2013
    flying with UA from SFO to EWR and have 90 minutes to catch the flight to Ireland (Also UA) will I have to collect my bags and recheck them? Will I also have to go through security there again? Is this enough time?


    No, all you will have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal C and connected beyond security.
