  • 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 .

    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

    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.


  • Flying GSP-EWR-ZFV
    Nov 24, 2013
    Okay so I am flying from Greenville, SC. I am planning on checking a bag. Since United didn't have any straight flights to Philly they have provided me with a Amtrak ticket to take from Newark. Well one thing I am confused about is if I'm checking a bag in, do I have to re-check it when I arrive in Newark at Amtrak or does it transfer? Also, the same on the way back. When I check my bag in at 30th Street Station, does it transfer or will I have to recheck a bag for United?


    You have to claim your bag at the baggage claim and put it on the train and on the other way, put the bag on the train yourself then check it in Newark. There is no checked bag service on these Amtrak trains. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-mileageplus-consolidated/374107-united-amtrak-codeshare-faq-including-zfv-philadelphia-22.html


  • Is 100 min sufficient to catch a flight in TerminalC from Amtrak stn?
    Nov 24, 2013
    For the first time I am going to Newark EWR airport by Amtrak train from Philadelphia (ZVF) rail station. I will reach at 6 PM to EWR station by train (if it doesn't do any late). I am 100 mins. time to catch an United Airlines flight at Terminal C. As I am flying to international destination, I will have to go through immigration and passport control. Is this time sufficient to catch the flight from Amtrak station? How can I go to Terminal C from Amtrak station? How long does it take? Please help me.


    Yes. that is enough time to make your transfer. The AirTrain connects the Amtrak station directly to Terminal C.


  • Assurance needed!
    Sep 23, 2013
    My brother, who is traveling alone from PHX to EWR with a 2 hour layover there, then on to AVP, is deaf and slightly mentally challenged (can get confused easily in a new place). I have requested wheel chair assistance from one gate to the next. Will the United FA's take him all the way to his next terminal gate so that he is never left alone to fend for himself??


    The people who push the wheelchairs do that as their only job (they are not flight attendants). But yes, they will take him from one plane to the next.


  • Customs and Connecting flight Time
    Sep 10, 2013
    I will be landing at EWR from EDI. I have one hour before my connecting flight. Is that enough time to get thru customs and make my next flight?


    No, that will probably not be enough time and is likely not a legal connection. I would try to change your connection to a later flight out of Newark if possible.


    At EWR Terminal B is for all international arrivals & departures (except those of United Airline). You would arrive at Terminal B (or C if using United, where they go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs, and (if connecting to another flight) re-check-in bags and take the Airtrain to their connecting terminal (if needed). Domestic flight connections would be in Terminal A, (or C for some domestic United flights). On arrival at TA, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. You may need up to 90 mins for transfer.


  • Arriving from UK - transfer query
    Aug 12, 2013
    Hi, We will be arriving in EWR (Terminal A) from the UK and transferring to a flight to Denver - both on United. I assume we will need to clear immigration in Newark. Will we also need to pick up our baggage or will that be transferred automatically? It's a single through ticket. Also - are there any ATMs in the terminal where we can pick up some dollars? Many thanks


    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage in immigration but can immediately re-check it with United after clearing customs. You will then go to the terminal for your departing flight and go through security. Yes, there should be numerous ATM's.


    Many thanks, that's very helpful. Do you know if the same will apply on our return flight (ITO - LAX - EWR - BHX)?


    No, on your return trip the only time you will have to go through immigration or touch your luggage is in Birmingham.


  • Lost small black bag

  • Port Authority Police at Newark - where?
    Jul 7, 2013
    Where is the port authority police station at EWR? My husband lost a bag; the police found it and have it at their station. It's pretty important that he retrieve this bag, but we can't find the police station on any map of the airport. Hubby is not blind but he is visually impaired. It's unlikely that he will be able to read any of the maps posted in the airport. So if anyone can give me an idea where he can find the police station, he'll be more prepared when he arrives. Thanks!


    The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey provides each of their Airports with Airport Police. See: http://www.panynj.gov/police/lost-found.html - however, EWR has no telephone quoted and the URL does not work. (tried both http:// and www. before it.) Call the Port Authority Police Lost and Found Custodian at (973) 961-6243.
