    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
    Aug 11, 2016
    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.

    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.

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Porter help
    Jul 18, 2016
    Is Porter help for lugguage available at EWR international arrival?


    No, there are not. There are carts to use free of charge.




    I thought carts cost $6, can you please confirm they are free?


    Yes, I'm sorry, EWR is one of the few US airports that make you pay even in the International baggage claim.

  • ewr 45 min to catch an international flight
    Jul 11, 2016
    Hello I arrive to ewr at 5 30 pm terminalA and have to catch a 6 20 pm flight to brussels through terminal C . Do i have enought time Do i have to go through seciurity and imigration


    There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the Shuttle bus from Terminal A to Terminal C if both flights are on United. It runs inside security. You have enough time if the first flight arrives on-time.


  • Enough time???
    Jul 10, 2016
    Is 1 hr 40 mins enough time to arrive at EWR and then get onto another flight to MYR? I have baggage. First time traveling as well.


    Where are you flying from? What airlines are you flying?


    I am flying from POS (Trinidad and Tobago) to Newark (EWR), then have 1 hr 40 mins to get on my flight to MYR.


    UNITED airlines all the way.


    That will be a difficult connection. You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, likely have to change terminals on the AirTrain then, go through security and to your departure gate. 1 hr 40 minutes is only enough time if everything goes perfectly.

  • about connctions and reservation gorup lounge
    Jun 25, 2016
    I'm flying on 29 June with a group of 21 students through EWR from MXP to LAS. Arrival at EWR: 13.40 Departure for LAS at 17.00. Will we have enough time for flight connection? Shall we collect again our baggage and go to the checkdesk? furthermore, we have a reservation for the Lounge: can you give me some more instructions how to reach it?Thank you


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then if you arrived in Terminal B, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. EWR has many lounges, which one are you talking about?


    The group lounge is at terminal C level 3. Thank you a lot!


  • Coming from France and going to Atlanta
    Jun 20, 2016
    Hello! I fly into EWR from France on delta, landing at 4:02 pm. I have a flight to Atlanta with on American at 6:30. Will I have enough time to clear costing and make my other flight? I have no checked bags and one carry on. Thank you!


    With carry-ons only you have a chance. However, please double check your reservation - American doesn't fly from Newark to Atlanta.


    It's connecting in charolette. Haven't booked the flight just yet, but I plan on booking now for sure. How long does customs usually take? I also have global entry..


    With global entry and no checked bags that should be enough time.
