We are flying United to Buffalo on Sunday morning - departing 7:56 AM. I would like to drop my 96-year old father and our luggage at Departures and then return the rental car (AVIS). Is there a place where he can sit and wait for me to come back via the Sky Train to check in and proceed to security and the gate? Or would it be better to park in short-term/handicapped area, check in and check our bags then I return the car while he waits at the Check-in area? How much time should I allow to get to the Rental Car return and back to Terminal A?
I think there would be somewhere for him to wait with the bags. I would leave 25-30 minutes to return the car and get back to A on the AirTrain.
Leaving on American out of Newark for a connecting flight to Costa Rica.mdo they offer curbside check in?
Yes, I believe they do.
Hi... trying to organise transfers... after plane lands from Ireland, how long before we "walk out of the airport". Thanks
Since you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. If you don't have checked bags, 10-15 minutes, if you have checked bags 20-30 minutes.
oh great that's really fast. Thank you for the reply
Teen daughter is travelling alone for first time. She is flying United out of BWI to EWR. She will then connect to international flight to Dublin. On the BWI side will she check in to International or Domestic flight?? Also, at EWR will she need to retrieve bag and then re-check it for flight on AerLingus? On return trip she flies AerLingus to Boston; then connecting JetBlue to BWI. Will she have to retrieve bag and recheck in Boston?
United only has one check-in desk in Baltimore. If both flights are on the same reservation then her bags will go through to Dublin, all she has to do in Newark is go to her departure terminal and through security. On the return, she will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All she has to do in Boston is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate, both in Terminal 3.
Thank you very much for the info!!
How long should it take for US citizen to get through customs in Terminal B on the return leg of a round trip to St.Maarten via United ?
30-60 minutes from the time the plane pulls up to the gate to the time you walk out of customs.
I am arriving on a flight from Quebec at 2:00 on May 28th. Then I need to take monorail to train station for a 3:25 departure. Is that going to be enough time to clear customs and claim my luggage?
What city in Quebec are you coming from? Where are you connecting to?
Quebec City
Taking the train at EWR Amtrak station headed to Richmond VA
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Traveling with group of 18 passengers from RDU to ZURICH -with a 4 hour delay in ERW. Our luggage should be processed all the way and we won't see till we arrive in ZURICH correct ? Also, do they have any lounges or areas large enough for my group ? 4 hours is a long time.

Is your flight to Zurich on United or Swiss? Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark.
has EWR improved their customs and immigration clearance in last 15 years? Do they have a good system for those of us with GLOBAL passport (prescreened) to get through lines and recheck bags on a connecting flight? thanks
Yes, if you have global entry it should not be difficult. Lots has changed in 15 years.
My husband's plane arrives at EWR at 3:50 pm from Spain and he needs to get on another plane (United) to come home, we have three different time options: 5:20 pm, 6:21 pm or 8:35 pm. Which would you suggest we book? Thank you in advance for your help.
I would choose the 6:21
That is the one that I thought to pick, thank you so much!
Hi, We have a connection flight via EWR. We are flying out of Vancouver, Canada, arriving at 5PM terminal A with Air Canada. Then we got to hop on a 6:30pm flight to Lisbon with TAP. Our travel agency told us we didn't have to re-check our luggage, but I am reading otherwise. Can someone advise? is 90 minutes sufficient time to get to Terminal B? would 60 minutes be sufficient case we're delayed? I suppose we have to go though security again, but hoping not to re-check the bags.

Any help will ease my stress. We are moving to the UK, have lots of luggage, and a baby (which usually helps skipping the lines!).

thank you!
That is correct, since you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark on the way to Portugal. All you have to do is take the AirTrain to Terminal B and go through security. You have enough time.
