  • Dropping Elderly Father at Term A Departures & Returning Rental Car
    Apr 19, 2017
    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.

  • Time to clear airport after landing
    Mar 26, 2017
    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


  • Traveling BWI to EWR to DUB
    Mar 26, 2017
    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.


  • Question / Suggestion
    Mar 5, 2017
    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.


  • Connection from Terminal B to United
    Feb 10, 2017
    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!


  • Travelling from Terminal A to B
    Jan 25, 2017
    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.


  • Border control
    Jan 12, 2017
    Travelling from Scotland U.K. Passport is there separate border control for us as we are travelling united airlines and catching connecting flight to Las Vegas arriving terminal b connecting united flight terminal c 2 hrs 10 mins later


    Repeat users of ESTA are allowed to use the Kiosks that US and Canadian citizens use. If you are a first-time ESTA user you have to wait in the line that people entering on a visa use. You should have enough time.


  • which terminal - a or c?
    Dec 20, 2016
    there is one terminal at Newark that i remember is always the most difficult to pick up a passenger from - the ramp goes down and there's a ton of cars and a traffic light before you reach the arrivals doors - is it A or C?


    C is a much newer terminal than A - does that help?


    it doesn't really answer my question, but thanks for commenting.


  • MXP-EWR-ORD connection, baggages collection and re-check
    Dec 3, 2016
    Hi everybody, I have my parents coming from Milan Malpensa to Chicago, connecting through Newark with 1 hour 30 minutes time. Will this layover time enough for connection? Both flights are United and looks like they are landing/taking off on Terminal C. Will my parents have to collect baggages, re-check them and also go again through security control? Thanks everybody for any reply and Merry Christmas! Diego


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If they miss their connection, United flies hourly flights from Newark to Chicago.


    Thanks Zap, how about baggages collection, re-check and security control? Do they have to do that? Thanks again!


    Yes, in Newark they will have to go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to their departure gate.
