  • yqb-->ewr-->hkg...customs in us?
    Dec 24, 2014

    I'm going from Quebec city (no preclearance) to Hong Kong with a connection through Newark. Do I need to pass through customs in the US, even though my final destination is Hong Kong? I want to make sure I have enough layover time to make my connection. Thanks.

     

    Yes, you will have to pass through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security. Leave at least 2 hours.

    We are flying form Glasgow to Newark with United Airline and 9 hours later catching connecting flight on same ticket from Newark to Miami. What is procedure for this? Will we have to get bags, clear customs and re-check in? Can we leave airport and what is best way to spend the time. Thanks

     

    You can but I'd stay at the airport in case there's a problem.

     

    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 you are free to leave. However, there is really not much near the Newark Airport. Taking the AirTrain and NJT into the city will take about an hour each way, and you will have to be back at the airport an hour before your next flight. So that realistically only leaves you a few hours in the city if you choose to go there. Your flight to Miami will depart from Terminal C.

    Hi there, I'm travelling in from Toronto landing at terminal A (Air Canada) I am having to transfer to terminal C to fly to Glasgow (United) What is the best way of doing this terminal change - Train or Bus?

    Im traveling from London to Panama in a connecting United flight. just have 85 minutes to do everything: Customs, Passport. change terminal. No bags to pick or recheck What do you think, am I going to make it.

     

    I think it's barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    No way! You need a lot more time then that!!

     

  • Travelling Delhi to Orlando

    My family is Travelling from Delhi to Orlando with united. I believe their immigration will be at EWR. Wats the transfer process . Do they collect their bags 1st n then do immigration or vice versa. Will they again have to recheck their bags at counter n do security again . How far are the gates of arrival n departure. Would they need to take a tram ? Thanks

     

    At EWR, United uses Terminals B & C (TB, TC) for its international flights - both terminals have their own customs procedures (go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag). United uses for its departures TC (United Express uses both TA & TC). After baggage re-check-in, she needs to take the AirTrain (follow signs) to TC - but needs to go through security check before proceeding to the connecting C gate.

     

  • Which is the best to take shuttle or air train from terminal c to a

    I'm flying in from Ireland and I'm nervous that I will miss my connecting flight

     

    Since you will pre-clear US Immigration in Ireland you will arrive inside the secure area and should take the shuttle.

    I have booked a flight from Birmingham to Orlando, with a connection through Newark. I am flying on one ticket. The time between flights is 1hr 15 mins will I make it?! My travel advisor in the UK told me that it is sold through United Airlines and is definitely do-able. Help!

     

    EDIT hi this is the return journey part of my holiday. Orlando international to Newark lands and I have just over an hour to catch my Newark to Birmingham flight.... Is there enough time??

     

    On the return trip it will be very doable as you do not go through US Customs or immigration when you leave the US - you will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in EWR.

     

    Phew!! Thank you :)

    1) I am arriving from Nashville at 10.15pm and taking a connecting flight the NEXT MORNING for Punta Cana at 9.05am. My question is : can I check my luggage from Nashville to Punta Cana or do I have to pick it upon arrival in EWR? and then check in again? 2) What is the time limit to check in for the flight to Punta Cana? 3) The same question as 1) but will be arriving IAD from Punta Cana in the evening a week later and then flying to Geneva Switzerland the following afternoon

     

    I believe you will have to pick up your baggage in Newark. You should aim to check in for your Punta Cana flight 90 minutes before scheduled departure, so 7:35. On your way back, you will go through US Immigration and Customs when you arrive in IAD. You will have to claim your baggage anyway on that trip in order to go through US Immigration. They won't allow you to re-check your bags almost an entire day before your next flight.

    flying in from belfast then on to orlando. do we need to change terminals and if so what is distane and time it takes. thank you

     

    You may arrive in Terminal B or Terminal C. In either case, in Newark you will go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, and then re-check your bags with United. Then if you arrived in Terminal B you will have to take the Airtrain to Terminal C. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate to orlando.

  • Never flew into EWR before!

    I am flying into EWR on Sat. 23rd at 4:09 pm (United out of MCO) I will be flying out at 7:00 pm Lufthansa for Dublin. I have never used Newark before, what are the suggested procedures? Bag pick-up? customs? Time? Terminals?

     

    you do not go through Customs when leaving the US nor will you have to do anything with your bags in EWR. Also, Lufhtansa does not fly from Newark to Dublin, so that flight will be on United as well. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal C. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Terminal A Arrivals

    I will be arriving at Terminal A on Air Canada with 2 small children and a bunch of luggage (car seats etc). I will have cleared US Immigration in Canada. I was told that I have to pick up all my baggage first and then proceed through a set of doors to meet my car service. Is this true? Can they get into the baggage area and assist me?

     

    Terminal A is a domestic terminal - on arrival at the gates, therefore after deplaning, proceed to the Arrivals /ground level where you should be met by your taxi driver holding up a sign with your name (if you pre-ordered a taxi). Otherwise, look for Skycaps & if you can't see one proceed to the nearby information counter asking for assistance.

     

  • Meet arriving passengers terminal C?

    My flight arrives at terminal A, my friend arrives at Terminal C... Will I need to pick up my baggage first and can I meet him inside the terminal c?

     

    Yes, you should pick up your baggage first. Yes, you can meet him in the baggage Claim or Terminal C. The AirTrain connects the terminals outside security.

     

    Thank you!

     

  • SAS arrival to American Airlines domestic flight

    I will be arriving on SAS and will need to go American Airlines flight to Chicago. I have 3 hrs. and 20 minutes total. what is the best way to procede?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal B where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. If you purchased your tickets together then you can re-check your bags at the re-check desk and then take the AirTrain to Terminal A where you will go through security and to your departure gate. If you purchased tickets separately, bring your bags with you to Terminal A where you will have to check them at the American Airlines counter and pay a checked bag fee. You should have enough time to make your transfer.

     

    Thank you for the helpful comment

     

  • Can non-traveller go to upto Delta gate TERMINAL B to assist traveler
    Jun 26, 2014

    Hi, I would like to know whether a non-traveller can assist a senior person to board the flight and can go along with traveller upto boarding gate and once traveler (senior person) boards the flight then non-traveller can comeout from the airport(ewr). This is for Delta gate TERMINAL B to assist traveler who is more than 65yrs.

     

    You probably can. You will have to go to the Delta check-in counter with this senior person you are accompanying and ask for it.

     

    Thank you.

     

    4:45 to 5 AM should be fine. However, the North terminal is a bit busy at 6 AM as every airline has departures at that time. They can check-in online and save themselves some time at the airport.
