Hello- i have an overnight layover and trying to decided where is the best place to sleep in the airport. I land at 935 from Rome and leave for cle at 0500. Airport hotel or sleep in the terminal. Thanks :)
Newark is not a great airport for sleeping in. It really depends on what your threshold and budget is though. You'll have only like 5-6 hours to kill from the time when you get out of customs to when you can go back through security.
Hello, just want to check.. I’m flying from Lisbon (TAP) to Vancouver (air canada) with three hour layover. Is three hour enough? Will I need to collect my luggage, go through security and go to a different terminal? I’m traveling with two kids that’s why I’m a bit concern
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to do all of that but it's still enough time.
How far is it to get from Terminal C (United Airlines) to Terminal B (Scandinavian Airlines) & do I need to pickup my luggage to be transferred to the next flight? This is a stopover & change planes to go onto next destination.
United runs a shuttle bus inside security from gate C71 to the gate area that SAS uses. If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Newark.
Hello,
I am taking the Delta flight from MSP to Newark that lands in terminal C at 7:30pm. Will that give me enough time to board an international UA flight from Terminal D at 9:00pm (I have one check-in luggage)?
Newark does not use Terminal C in Newark and there is no Terminal D. Delta uses Terminal B and United uses Terminal C. That will be very difficult with checked baggage since you will have to transfer the bags between airlines yourself.
thanks - really helps.
hi i will be coming in from an internationally flight to EWR arriving around 5pm on a friday and my connection has about 1hr14min. will this be enough time to clear immigration and customs? if not what would happen if i could not make it to the connection on time? thanks
That's not realistically enough time. Are both flights on the same reservation? Where are you flying from and to? What airlines?
yes they are on the same reservation, from tokyo to EWR to ORF, all flight are United Airline. Thank you for the response
Maybe you could make it with no checked bags. Still very risky. I would call United and ask for different flights. Maybe there's a later flight from Newark to Norfolk or maybe you can connect in Chicago or Washington DC instead.
I'm flying into EWR on United with a 4:13 pm arrival and fly out on Norwegian at 11:30 pm. I've decided against trying to go anywhere because I have terrible luck and the train would break down coming back or something. Ha. I'd like to wait in the Norwegian lounge in TB, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get there? I'm flying on separate tickets, so I assume I have to collect my bags from the United flight and recheck with Norwegian, but not sure if there is anyway to recheck with Norwegian sooner than 2 or 3 hours before the flight? So am I destined to wander around pre-security for 5 hours with my bags? Or is there possibly a way to check in my bags and clear security super early?
Yeah, you'll be stuck outside security until you can re-check your bags with them about 8 PM or so when I expect the Norwegian check-in desk opens. Also, Norwegian uses the El Al lounge in Newark.
My both flights run from Terminal C. My layover is 1 hr 10 mins. Is that time sufficient.
Can somebody tells that i have to go out of terminal or i have to be inside the termianl.
Im flying from ireland to newark and connecting flight to houston on 13th sept united. They changed my flight times few weeks ago giving me 30mins to get my concecting flight. Both in terminal c. Do u think i will make it
Our flight from Shannon arrived at Gate 82 in Terminal C and our departure gate for the next flight 90 minutes later was directly opposite at Gate 83, We had already cleared US Customs & Immigration in Shannon. How did you get on?
What do I do if my plane lands at EWR from Tel Aviv at 5:00pm and next flight isn't until 5:30am next morning
Hi,

I'll be travelling to Tel Aviv. My flight arrives at Newark airport from Chicago at 12:11 pm. I'll be coming from Brazil so my bags will be rechecked in Chicago. I'll have a carry on probably.

The flight to Tel Aviv leaves at 10:45 pm. Do I have enough time to go to Manhattan and walk around Times Square and the Central Park? Train would be the best way to do it?
