  • SAS arrival to American Airlines domestic flight
    Jul 7, 2014
    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.


  • Immigration and customer clearance ?
    Jun 22, 2014
    Hello. My mother in law will be traveling to St. Louis from New Delhi, india. She has a connecting flight (both united) at ewr. Will she be clearing immigration and customs at ewr? What will be the procedure? Will she be claiming her baggage there? If yes, how much time will the whole process take?


    At EWR, your party may arrive at either Terminal B or C - both are used by United for international arrivals. While United Express uses domestic terminal A, United Airways uses Terminal C for domestic flights also. For Terminal, International Arrivals procedure, transfer options, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ewr, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    She will arrive in B or C, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check her bags with United. Then she will take the Airtrain to her departure terminal (if she doesn't both arrive and depart from C), she may depart from A or C. Then she will go through security and to her gate. Minimum time allowed between an international and domestic flight at EWR is 90 minutes.

  • Connecting flight Dayton to LHR
    Jun 8, 2014
    My wife is travelling alone from Dayton with United Express to EWR with a 70minute period to connect with a UA flight to LHR. Will her bags go straight from the UE plane to the UA? Will she go through customs at EWR? She is worried there will not be enough time. The tickets were booked as a package.

  • Meeting Point
    Feb 16, 2014
    Hi, I 'm travelling in from Glasgow, my friend is traveling in from Cleveland. We should clear about the same time as I arrive one hour earlier.Any suggestions for a well sign posted meeting point. Neither of us has used Newark before so it will be unfamiliar to us. Thank You


    Your friend may arrive in either Terminal A or C if he is on United and you may arrive in Terminal B or C. So first you need to decide what Terminal to meet in (I recommend C).


    Thanks Zap for your quick response Do you think it could be possible to get an exact point.ie If you come out arrivals Terminal A there is a starbucks same level of if you come out arrivals Terminal |C| there is a coffee shack same level. I don't mind going between terminals as the Airtrain looks easy to negotiate, my friend on the other hand is a first time flyer and fairly nervous about the ordeal We are both traveling United .


  • United flyer
    Feb 9, 2014
    My husband is flying United from the Middle East to Chicago with a stopover in EWR. Will he need to claim baggage and recheck them or will the airline do it for him?


    If Newark is the first point where he will enter the United States, he has to claim his baggage after he clears immigration, go through US customs, then re-check his bags. If they are checked through to Chicago then he can just drop them at the re-check desk after exiting customs.


  • picking up exchange student
    Jan 5, 2014
    I am picking up an exchange student getting of a Lufthansa flight. Where should I tell her to meet me? (1/10/14)


    Since he or she won't be familiar with the country or airport and probably won't have a phone, it'll probably best that you park or ride the train to the airport and meet them at the exit of US Customs in Terminal B.


  • Terminal B to A
    Dec 21, 2013
    Hi! I will arrive to EWR Terminal B with SAS and I have a connection AA flight to Miami from Terminsl A. I prseume I have to clear customs and immigration at EWR and rec-heck my luggage (even if it is checked in to my final destination)? Can I drop my luggage after customs at Terminal B? Merry Christmas from Stockholm


    If your bags are tagged through to Miami then you will be able to re-check them in Terminal B. Otherwise you will have to take them to Terminal A with you on the Airtrain.
