  • 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.


  • Layover from International to Domestic Flight - Customs

    We land from Amsterdam on Lufthansa @ 12:15pm, leave on a direct flight to Austin @ 2:25pm on Southwest. Will we make it with customs and all?


    It's possible without checked bags. With checked bags I don't think it's really possible.


  • Enought Time

    Yes, that should be.


  • Getting from plane to Security
    Aug 3, 2016
    How do we get from our international flight Term C to Security and then retrieve luggage please


    You don't go to security first. You will be directly sent to US Immigration, then claim your bags, then go through US Customs. if you are continuing on you will re-check your bags and go through security.


    Thank you, if we are staying in New York and not continuing on another flight do we still need to re-check our bags


    Yes, you do.


    My mom is flying in from oslo, norway on united, then she has a connecting flight to slc. I assume she will have to reclaim her baggage then recheck them. Is there a service at EWR that assist customers that dont speak english? Im afraid this is way too complicated for her. Please respond thank you.


  • Enough time?
    May 31, 2016
    Hi, im looking at booking a flight to Minneapolis via New York with United ( though booked through a 3rd party company). The flight from Manchester lands in terminal b and i would have 1hr 30 to connect to the flight to MSP from termical C. Is this enough time? maybe not united would get me on the next plane?


    That's not realistically enough time, although it's not completely impossible especially if you don't check bags. Yes, if you did miss your connection you would be rebooked on the next available flight to MSP, possibly connecting in Chicago.


  • Changeover time
    May 31, 2016
    I'm flying Belfast to Newark with United (july) arriving 1.35pm, then NEwark to MCO also United at 3.10pm, I also need to clear customs, will this be enough time?


    That would be barely enough time if everything went perfectly.


  • Connecting flight from B to C
    May 31, 2016
    Hi, I have a connecting flight from EWR to MCO. I will Come from Germany. So I have to go to the security before I Move from Terminal b to c? And do I have to check in my luggage again. Because I only have 75 minutes. I will fly with United Airlines. Thanks


    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then change terminals and go through security. 75 minutes is not enough time 90 minutes is the minimum with 2 hours recommended.

    I'm flying from Boston to EWR and lands at 935pm. My next flight is at 1020pm from EWR to Indianpolis. Will 45 mins be enough time? Tips?


    Yes, that should be just enough time. If you have to change terminals from A to C or vise-versa there is a shuttle inside security.


  • 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
    May 19, 2016
    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.
