When there is a known issue with the Air Train (like there was 12/27/15 with terminal C) please have the "Red Coats" knowledgeable to know one will have to take a shuttle to terminal C. That was a giant mess yesterday.
This is not EWR or United's website. Nobody from those entities will see your comments /complaints.
The signage inside the elevator is quite confusing and has been for some time with regard to what services can be found on what floors. You press four and the door says 3 so you don't get off not knowing that 3 is the new 4.
1 US and 1 Swiss citizen arriving EWR on 27 Dec from ZRH with 7 hour layover to continuing flight wish to leave transit area to meet people in public part of the airport. Does luggage for connecting flights within USA have to be collected and re-checked on arrival EWR? How long will the exiting & reentering process take? Many thanks for info
You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. At this point you will be outside the secure area. There are no "transit areas" at US Airports.
By mistake I think I posted the following in the wrong forum..January 10, 2015 flying YWG - YYZ - EWR arriving EWR on AC (United 8202) at 1035 PM. Connecting next morning January 11, 2015 at 9:04 AM to United 1040 travelling to AUA. All ticketed on United. I am aware of US immigration and customs procedures in YYZ. My question is - will my bags be checked through to AUA or will I need to gather them in Newark for the night and check them at United counter in the morning? We have booked a room at the Marriott at the airport.Thanks, Jim
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.
