  • Is checked luggage bag drop before or after security
    May 19, 2016
    When we go through immigration and pick up bags, does that checked luggage also go through security with your hand luggage as well? is re-check bags after this process or before?


    You re-check your checked bags before you go through security.


  • Baggage

    Nashville to EWR via united. from there I have 1.5 hours to get icelandair for a jump to Iceland. do I have to go back through security for my checked baggage? is this enough time at EWR?


    Yes, you will have to exit the secure area, claim your bags, change terminals on the airtrain, re-check your bags with Icelandair, and go through security. This connection is pretty much impossible.


    Thank you

    Hi ,I am going to Atlanta from India Via Newark through United airlines .I have to change flight in newark at terminal C only .So what is the toatl procedure and how much total time it will take as i have 2.30 hrs for all the stuff.


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    if have connection flight from same carrier like United Airlines ,do i still have to recheck in my baggage from departure or there would be some flight connection baggage transfer near to arrival belt only


    Yes, you will still have to claim your bags, go through Customs, and re-check. Re-check will be right after customs.


  • international to domestic

    I am flying to EWR from BCN, and then continuing to DCA from EWR. I am planning on purchasing wine in Barcelona´s duty-free shop but will i have to go through security again when I land at EWR and change to a domestic flight? So I can´t take the wine with me? I am not checking bags.


    Correct, then you can't purchase wine in Barcelona's duty free shop if you are not checking a bag.


    You can purchase wine in Barcelona duty free and bring it in your carry on. But it must be put in a tamper evident bag which they should know about at the duty free store.

    going to book a flight from belfast - newark - chicago its all same airline (austrian sirlnes) and they have gave us 1hr 44m in newark terminal c to get to b and do all checking in etc that we need too - is this possible. what will we have to do etc?


    None of the flights will be on Austrian. They will all be operated by United. 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 B, take the AirTrain to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly. If you miss your connection United has hourly flights from Newark to Chicago.


  • Connecting flight and baggage claim
    Apr 13, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying from RIC(Richmond) to BOM(India) through EWR(Newark) with 3 checked-in bags and 2 kids. United Airlines. Depart (RIC) 2:17 pm ==> Arrive (EWR) 3:47 pm United Airlines. Depart (EWR) 8:25 pm ==> Arrive (BOM) 8:50 pm I have 4+ hours of layover in EWR is that enough to change terminal ? Do I need to go through the security clearance again in EWR? And on the way back to USA with the same United Airlines with 3 checked-in bags and 2 kids: United Airlines. Depart (BOM) 11:20 pm ==> Arrive (EWR) 5:20 am United Airlines. Depart (EWR) 8:32 am ==> Arrive (RIC) 10:04 am I have 3+ hours of layover in EWR, is that enough time to clear customs, change terminal to catch the connecting flight? Do I need to claim the baggage and check-in again in EWR? Please help me and thanks in advance for your time. DJ.


    On your way to Mumbai you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal 3. United operates a shuttle bus inside security from A to C. On your way back you will arrive in C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thank you very much.

    Yes, you can use Premier Access check in if you are flying first class. Look for the big Premier Access signs in the lobby It is located on Level 3 of Terminal C.

  • Checkin baggage (Omaha-Newark-Mumbai)
    Mar 27, 2016
    Hi, I will traveling by United Airlines on 27Apr'16 from Omaha to Newark by Domestic flight and then from Newark to Mumbai by International flight. Would I need to check out bag at Newark airport and re check in before international travel from Newark to Mumbai. or it will get transferred automatically as the airline is the same..


    You will not have to claim your bags in Newark on your way to Mumbai.

    Hi! I'm flying with United from Detroit to Newark and from there Düsseldorf. United changed though the flight time and so that the plane arrives at 20:29 at Newark and the plane from Newark to Düsseldorf leaves at 20:50. Is it possible to make it?


    No, that's not possible, call United and reject the schedule change and ask for an earlier flight to Newark. Or a rebooking onto the Lufthansa nonstop from Detroit to Frankfurt and then connecting to a Lufthansa flight to Dusseldorf.


    I will then contact with United and see what can be done. Thank you!


  • Edinburg to Newark to SFO
    Mar 19, 2016
    Hi, traveling on a Friday, arrive terminal B at 12:00 noon and depart from terminal C at 1:30. US citizen. Is that a realistic connect time?


    I think it's unlikely to be enough time if you have checked bags. However, there are frequent flights from EWR to SFO that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.


    Yes...1 checked bag. My connect time in SFO - KOA is less than 1 hour. So no time for delays. Thank you for confirming what I was thinking.


  • Travel from Newark to Madison
    Mar 13, 2016
    My flight gets in from Delhi to Newark at 5.15 am on 21st April Thursday. at Terminal C. I would like to take Delta 2381 at 7.29 am from Newark to Madison. Is this enough time? I will have one check in bag. Thanks in advance.


    That will be very difficult, with two flights on two separate itineraries from two separate terminals with checked baggage. But it's not impossible.


  • tight connection

    What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags? Yes, you will have to go through security after you clear customs.


  • Never did a conection flight in UA
    Feb 28, 2016
    Hello, im going on june from Costa Rica with United airlines to Frankfurt Germany with Lufthansa trought EWR, is the same terminal? Can someone explain me the process of a connection flight in UA, never did it before.


    You will arrive in Terminal B or C (likely B), go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs and then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. Then if you arrived in Terminal B, you will take the AirTrain to Terminal C where you depart. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate.


    Im arriving in terminal C going to terminal B, so in terminal C i do the papers and leave my luggage in the re-check desk or re-check it on terminal B?


    If you arrive in Terminal C then you will go through US Immigration customs, and re-check in C. However, United International flights can arrive in B OR C. Regardless of where you arrive, there will be a re-check desk after you clear customs.

    Hi, My little sister is flying from San Francisco to Newark with United airlines and will have a connecting flight from Newark to St Maarten. Would anyone know which terminal she will arrive to/depart from? want to make sure she's getting around ok.


    She will arrive and depart from Terminal C. All she has to do in Newark is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate.
