    I am picking up someone arriving from Europe. When you exit straight from customs to the street, which level are you on?

     

    The lowest level.

    If we get through Customs Preclearance in Dublin, do we simply walk to the gate of our connection? Do we have to go through security again? Thanks.

     

    You just go straight to your departure gate.

     

    Great, so a shorter connection of 1:20 is ok then? How do we know if we can do Preclearance in Dublin....is it always open? thanks.

     

    Yes it is now used by every flight from Dublin to the US. You should have enough time.

    When there is a known issue with the Air Train (like there was 12/27/15 with terminal C) please have the "Red Coats" knowledgeable to know one will have to take a shuttle to terminal C. That was a giant mess yesterday.

     

    This is not EWR or United's website. Nobody from those entities will see your comments /complaints.

     

  • Elevator door floor numbers and signage

    The signage inside the elevator is quite confusing and has been for some time with regard to what services can be found on what floors. You press four and the door says 3 so you don't get off not knowing that 3 is the new 4.

    1 US and 1 Swiss citizen arriving EWR on 27 Dec from ZRH with 7 hour layover to continuing flight wish to leave transit area to meet people in public part of the airport. Does luggage for connecting flights within USA have to be collected and re-checked on arrival EWR? How long will the exiting & reentering process take? Many thanks for info

     

    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. At this point you will be outside the secure area. There are no "transit areas" at US Airports.

    I have a 14 hours layover in Newark, will I have to claim my luggage or can I check them through my final destination? I'm travelling with AA and every flights are on the same reservation.

     

    You will have to ask the agent in your origin city. AA does not have a hub in Newark. Where are you flying from and to?

    By mistake I think I posted the following in the wrong forum..January 10, 2015 flying YWG - YYZ - EWR arriving EWR on AC (United 8202) at 1035 PM. Connecting next morning January 11, 2015 at 9:04 AM to United 1040 travelling to AUA. All ticketed on United. I am aware of US immigration and customs procedures in YYZ. My question is - will my bags be checked through to AUA or will I need to gather them in Newark for the night and check them at United counter in the morning? We have booked a room at the Marriott at the airport.Thanks, Jim

    Hi I have some letters I need to mail. Is there a mailbox in the airport or in the United Club??

     

    There are no public mailboxes located within the terminal areas of the airport.

    I'm going from Quebec city (no preclearance) to Hong Kong with a connection through Newark. Do I need to pass through customs in the US, even though my final destination is Hong Kong? I want to make sure I have enough layover time to make my connection. Thanks.

     

    Yes, you will have to pass through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security. Leave at least 2 hours.

     

  • Transfer procedure

    We are flying form Glasgow to Newark with United Airline and 9 hours later catching connecting flight on same ticket from Newark to Miami. What is procedure for this? Will we have to get bags, clear customs and re-check in? Can we leave airport and what is best way to spend the time. Thanks

     

    You can but I'd stay at the airport in case there's a problem.

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you are free to leave. However, there is really not much near the Newark Airport. Taking the AirTrain and NJT into the city will take about an hour each way, and you will have to be back at the airport an hour before your next flight. So that realistically only leaves you a few hours in the city if you choose to go there. Your flight to Miami will depart from Terminal C.

    Im traveling from London to Panama in a connecting United flight. just have 85 minutes to do everything: Customs, Passport. change terminal. No bags to pick or recheck What do you think, am I going to make it.

     

    I think it's barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    No way! You need a lot more time then that!!

     

  • Travelling Delhi to Orlando

    My family is Travelling from Delhi to Orlando with united. I believe their immigration will be at EWR. Wats the transfer process . Do they collect their bags 1st n then do immigration or vice versa. Will they again have to recheck their bags at counter n do security again . How far are the gates of arrival n departure. Would they need to take a tram ? Thanks

     

    At EWR, United uses Terminals B & C (TB, TC) for its international flights - both terminals have their own customs procedures (go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag). United uses for its departures TC (United Express uses both TA & TC). After baggage re-check-in, she needs to take the AirTrain (follow signs) to TC - but needs to go through security check before proceeding to the connecting C gate.

     

  • Which is the best to take shuttle or air train from terminal c to a

    I'm flying in from Ireland and I'm nervous that I will miss my connecting flight

     

    Since you will pre-clear US Immigration in Ireland you will arrive inside the secure area and should take the shuttle.
