  • 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.

    Quick question. Travelling on First on UA15. I hsve no status with United. Since I'm be flying in first, i thonk can use Premier assess checkin? If so what are the benefits and where i should go when I arrive at EWR?


    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.

    I m flying from Dominican republic UA - Newark - Munich With lufthansa. Do i have to claim baggage in Newark? Is two hours enough time in Newark?


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly change terminals, and go through security. You have just enough time.


  • 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.

    I have 1hr 30m time frame to catch a connecting flight to BUF arriving from LHR in terminal B BUF depart terminal A. I have global entry and on business class. Do I have to go back thro security?


    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.


  • Which Terminal am I landing to
    Feb 10, 2016
    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.


  • K1Visa from Philippines
    Feb 2, 2016
    my fiance is arriving in Terminal C with k1 visa....she has only 1 hour and 15 mins to depart in Terminal C to Fort Lauderdale...will she have enough time. She should have no problem with primary interview


    1 hr 15 mins is not enough time for an international to domestic connection. Where is she flying to Newark from? There are no nonstop flights from the Philippines to Newark.


  • international terminal
    Feb 2, 2016
    Is the international terminal C ? Also is it well marked how to get to long term parking?


    Both Terminals B and C handle international flights. C handles United departures and some United International arrivals. B handles all other airline International arrivals and some United International arrivals.


  • customs and immigration hours
    Feb 2, 2016

    Customs and Immigration is open when there are arriving flights.


  • Connecting flights from Toronto to Costa Rica time
    Jan 10, 2016
    I am flying into Newark from Toronto and only have 1hr 10min connection time. I will only have a carry on bag and we go through US customs in Toronto before we fly out. I have to get from Terminal A to C. Will I have time to make my flight? Both flights are with United


    That is enough time if your first flight is on-time. There is a shuttle bus inside security between A and C.

    What steps do I take once I land in sweden? I've never flown before, let alone out of the country


    In Newark you will just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C - United runs a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in A and C. If you are flying SAS to ARN you will depart from Terminal B. There is also a shuttle there. Once you land in Stockholm you will go through passport control, claim your bags, and then go through customs, which may just be you walk through a gate.


    Thank you so much! I appreciate your response! It's really helped ease a lot of nerves :)
