  • 1h 55 layover in Newark
    Oct 23, 2016
    Hello, I will have a 1h 55m layover in EWR. I will arrive from Austin with United Airlines and then need to go to Terminal B, and check in for my flight with El-Al to Israel. Will I have enough time?


    With checked bags it will be very difficult for you to make it to the El Al check in desk before the cutoff.


    I see, and without checked bags it is reasonable?

    Hi All, My family will be travelling from Mumbai to Newark and arrive at Terminal C. Their next flight is also from Terminal C to Memphis. We have 2 kids (7 and 1.5 year old). Will they have to claim their baggage at Newark or will it reach directly to Memphis? Since both the arriving and departure terminal are same do they have to take any train or any other commute? Please help.


    Yes, in Newark they will go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk. The flight to Memphis may depart from Terminal C or A. If it departs from A they will take the AirTrain to Terminal A. Then go through security and to their departure gate.


    Thanks for the quick response. As per the tickets it is mentioned as Terminal C for Memphis flight so hopefully there will not be any AirTrain commute. Just in case they change it to Terminal A: re-check baggage needs to be done at Terminal A or can it be done in C?


    Re-check will be done at a special desk right after you clear customs in C. Don't trust the terminals listed on those reservations - be sure to check the monitors or United.com when you arrive in Newark for the actual departure gate.


  • MAN through EWR to CLT
    Sep 29, 2016
    My husband and I will be traveling from MAN and have a 3 hour layover in EWR. How does customs work and will we have enough time? Our airline is Lufthansa but operated by united.


    In Newark 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 re-check desk. You will depart from Terminal A or C. If you arrived at a different terminal than where you depart, you will then take the AirTrain to your departure terminal and go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • EWR to DAY

    I have a connecting flight, no hold baggage (just carryon) and 45 minutes in between flights. Both flights are with United Airlines. I'm not sure yet which gate I'll be at, but will they likely be close/manageable because I am flying the same airline?


    Where is the first flight from?


    It's from Pearson (Toronto)


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on United Express you should just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal A.

    My family is travelling from India to San Jose through EWR. Considering that there would be 8 bags, Stroller and 3 kids, please let me know if there would be someone to help collect the baggage, go through Customs and then do check-in baggage again for Southwest. Arrival is on Terminal B whereas domestic flight to San Jose is from Terminal A. I am a bit worried.


    No, there is no such person. Don't bring more baggage than you can carry. Ship your stuff ahead if you have to. Maybe pack a foldable luggage cart (or maybe 2) in your checked bags.

    Flying from Hamburg to New Ark with a connecting flight to Akron/Canton OH. Layover time is only 1:35h. Is this enough and even a legal MCT? Thanks for your answer


    It's tecnhically a legal connection but it will be very difficult for you to make.

    Hi, I am looking to book a trip from the Uk to Las Vegas however the return flight includes a 14 hour connection at Newark, I was wondering would we be able to leave the airport during this time to explore the city and if so how realistic is 'popping' into New York and returning to the airport? Regards Laura Hunt


  • 1hr 45 minutes enough to connect international to domestic?
    Aug 25, 2016
    I booked a flight with United and have 1hr 45 minutes layover between the flight (Spain-EWR) to the domestic flight EWR-IAH. I need to get through customs and straight to the gate? Do I have to pick up and check again my luggage? Will this be enough? Any advice?


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly take the airtrain to Terminal C, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Transit visa

    Hi. We are going from punta cana to EWR then have a 1 hour layover to catch a flight to Heathrow. We have our ESTA. We are flying on different sirlybut thr same company. Is that enough time? And do we need to get our bags or will they be transferred onto the new plane?


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. That is NOT enough time for your connection.


  • Connection from terminal A to C
    Aug 23, 2016
    My mother 80 + needs assistance to transit from A to C. Her flights are not connected and are separate bookings. Her first journey ends at EWR and the onward is a separate booking


    How much time does she have? What kind of "assistance" does she need?


    She has about 4 hours. Moving with her bags from terminal A to terminal C


    Can she walk? The AirTrain goes from Terminal A to C outside security.


    Yes she can, but with her suitcase and bag it is very challenging.


  • edinburgh to newark to orlando

    Hi, we're travelling to Orlando from Edinburgh and have a layover at Newark of 1 hour 37 minutes, Both flights are with United Airlines. Is this enough time for us to get our connecting flight when we have checked baggage? Thanks in advance for any advice.


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    What would happen if me miss connecting flights? We booked this through a travel agent and have insurance.


    United will book you on their next available flight to Orlando.


    Thanks for your help.


  • where to find the baggage service office at EWR
    Aug 9, 2016
    My checked baggages arrived EWR yesterday (8/8/16). However, due to Delta airline's major delays at ATL, my flight was cancelled and had to rebook to JFK today (8/9/16). I am wondering where I can find my baggages at EWR.


    Call Delta baggage service to see where your bags are - they may be at JFK. If they are in Newark, the Delta baggage service office is on the lower level of Terminal B.


  • getting between A1 and A2

    Does anyone know how I can get from terminal A1 to A2 without going out through security? Thank you!


    You can't.


  • Transit time with only one hour
    Jul 30, 2016
    I am taking a united flight with checked in luggage from New Orleans to EWR terminal A and only has an hour transit before another united flight departs from terminal A and brings me to Buffalo. Will there be any issue to catch the next united flight? Do i need to clear the US customs again or re check in my luggage?


    Louisiana and New York are both located in the United States of America, so you don't have to go through customs. You also don't have to do anything with your baggage. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. If you do actually need to go to or from Terminal C, United runs a shuttle inside security between their gates in A and C.
