  • collecting luggage
    Apr 15, 2015
    I'm travelling from Birmingham UK to Newark to Raleigh Durham nc do I need to collect my luggage at Newark?


    Yes, you will need to collect your luggage to go through US Customs, then re-check it immediately after at the transfer desk.

  • From Paris to Hong Kong, via EWR. U.S.Customs & immigration required?
    Mar 31, 2015
    Hi; I'm arriving to EWR on a flight from Paris. Three hours later I have a connecting flight to Hong Kong. Is there a transit area in EWR where I can bypass immigration and customs (and my bags go through directly to the connecting flight.) Or must I go through immigration, customs, collect my bags and then recheck them? Thanks very much for your help.


    You must go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security.


    Thank you very much for your prompt reply.


  • How to know which terminal arriving and have enough time?
    Mar 31, 2015
    Hi! I'll be arriving from Chicago at 8am and leaving at 9am to Nassau. Which terminal will I be arriving and departing and is 58 min enough time? All United flight. And returning its a 2 hour layover. I'm very concerned because it will be first time connecting flights. Please helo


    The flight that leaves Chicago at 5 AM and gets into Newark at 8 AM usually arrives in Terminal A. Your flight to Nassau will depart from Terminal C. United operates a shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Thank you so much! WI'll the shuttle be easy to find and get on? It's different from AirTran right?


    Yes. the shuttle is different from the AirTrain. The shuttle leaves from near gate A28.


    Thank you so much for your help! One more question: I called United today because I just wanted to see if I had any options to change flight or really just to see what they had to say. And she stated that the 5am would arrive in terminal c and that United would never sell tickets with less than an hour connection if the passenger had to change terminals. I stated that from what I've gathered that flight ord-ewr arrives in a. She assured me my flight(June) would be in C. Does United change itinerary schedules frequently? Long story short, there's norhing I can do to change the situation now but what a learning experience it has been. I guess my family will have to learn how to book/travel and now is the time😊. Thank you so much for your guidance and advice


    She is wrong. The 5 AM flight commonly arrives in Terminal A. That being said, it is also often early arriving, so that helps.


  • International Connecting Flight
    Mar 29, 2015
    Hello! I am flying on United from St. Louis to Newark to Stockholm. I have only an hour and 45 minute layover in Newardk Is that long enough? Will I need to recheck bags? Thank you very much for the assistance.


    All you will have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive from STL in Terminal A, United runs a shuttle bus from their gates in Terminal A to where you will depart in Terminal C.

    Mar 16, 2015
    Hi - I arrive at terminal A via air Canada and my friends arrive via Lufthansa at terminal B shortly after me. I am suppose to meet them there - is that possible? Best advice to get there?


    Yes, you could take the AirTrain from A to B and meet them on the lower level at the exit of customs.


  • Connecting Flight to IAH
    Mar 15, 2015
    My parents are flying to EWR from MAD (Spain), they then have a flight to IAH. I am worried because they don't know English, is there any kind of assisstance to go between terminals, also they are over 65 yrs. old, please help!!!


    It will not hard for them to find Spanish speaking assistance in Newark. It may not be in an accent they're used to but Newark handles lots of Spanish speaking passengers.


  • Connecting flights exiting terminal
    Mar 3, 2015
    I arrive at terminal B from London and have connecting flight to Fort Myers from terminal C 4 hours later. I plan to meet my step daughter for lunch when I arrive. is it best to meet her at terminal C where I assume I have to check in for connecting flight? Will I have enough time? Thank you for your help


    You should have enough time. You would probably want to meet her at the exit of customs in Terminal B.


    thank you. that is reassuring.


  • First tim Traveler to Europe
    Feb 15, 2015
    I'm leaving from Houston to Newark then connecting to a flight to Berlin, Germany, is 1 hr 50 min enough time and do I have to leave the area to get my connecting flight, and do I need to get my luggage first? I'm nervous as I'll be traveling alone.


    On your way to Europe all you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both will be in Terminal C. If your first flight is on-time you'll have plenty of time.


  • Transfer from Terminal A to C
    Jan 18, 2015
    Hi I am booking a flight from Knoxville to Glasgow with united and my domestic flight arrives at Newark in terminal A and I need to connect to terminal c for the flight to Glasgow. We have a layover of 4 hours. Is there an opportunity to go outside to have a smoke or do I need to stay within the airport? thanks for any feedback.


    Yes, you can exit security in Terminal A, find a place where smoking is allowed, then make your way to the AirTrain and take it to Terminal C. You will then have to go through security in Terminal C so make sure you have your boarding passes and ID with you when you do this.


  • Meeting point - most obvious, easiest to find
    Jan 15, 2015
    I'm arriving at Terminal C and my daughter - at Terminal A two hours later. Where would be the best place for us to meet? Thanks!


  • Overnight connection EWR
    Jan 6, 2015
    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


  • Mailbox

    Hi I have some letters I need to mail. Is there a mailbox in the airport or in the United Club??


    There are no public mailboxes located within the terminal areas of the airport.


  • 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.


  • Transfer procedure
    Dec 19, 2014
    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.
