Travelling from Toronto, Canada to Rome, Italy with a 3 hour connection in Newark. Do I have to collect my bags and recheck them? Do I have to clear US Customs? Or do I just have to clear security again?
I should mention the Toronto to Newark flight is Air Canada and the Newark to Rome flight is United.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Newark is take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security.
I will be travelling from atlanta to Geneva via Newark. My layover is 1 hour 40 minutes. Both the flghts are united airlines (under 1 ticket) and originate from Terminal C.

a) Is 1hr 40 minutes enough to catch the international flight ?
b) Do i have to go through security again @Newark ? Where do i have to go through the departure immigration?
Yes, that is enough time. There is no such thing as "departure immigration". All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Is 1 hr 19 min on United enough time to connect from Turks and Caicos to DTW?
No, that is not realistically enough time. You need at least 2 hours.
I booked a flight from Vancouver to Newark and then on to Dublin. I realised yesterday that I have to change airport to JFK. I have 4 hours and ten minutes if my flight is on time. Will i make this flight?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. It will take you nearly 2 hours to go between airports and likely cost over $100 unless you take the EWR AirTrain to New Jersey Transit to Penn Station to the LIRR to the JFK AirTrain, which will take maybe a little longer, but only cost about $30.
I am flying with United from London Heathrow, stopping at Newark for 8hrs and then continuing with United to West Palm Beach. Do I need to collect my bags in Newark or does United send them straight to West Pal Beach?
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through Security and to your departure gate.
I'll arrive at 6AM to Terminal B, my next flight to Boston is at 6PM from Terminal A. I plan to visit NYC. Please advice when i need to be back in EWR airport for the next flight? At what time do i need to board the train at Penn Station? Are there round trip tickets available at EWR for NJ Transit ?

Thanks a lot.
You need to be on the train at Penn Station at about 3 PM to be comfortably back at EWR on-time.
Dear Friends, I have a 5 hrs 40 Min layover in Newark port. Will it be sufficient for me to quickly see Statue of liberty and get back to airport to board my flight? Can i do this after i check in my luggage to United and then can i go?
No, that's not really enough time.
I'll arrive at 6AM to Terminal B, my next flight to Boston is at 6PM from Terminal A. I am NOT flying United. Any ideas where i can left my luggage in EWR to be able to have a quick visit to NYC?
There is no luggage storage at EWR. If you take the NJT into Manhattan there is a luggage storage place near Penn Station.
Can you advise on the storage place please?
The Businesses are named Luggage Keeper and Schwartz Luggage Storage NYC.
I will arrive to Newark at 12,36 and the flight for Milan will depart at 6,25PM
I will have enough time to go to Liberty Statue Park? Can someone tell me how to get there?
Thank you
Yes, that is enough time. The best way is a taxi. you will have to call a taxi to go back to the airport. Note that even though it's not far away, it will still be about a $40 taxi ride each way.
My flight will arrive in Terminal C and I have 45 minutes to hop on to the next flight in Terminal B. Is 45 minutes goo enough? Any express way to get there faster?
What airline are you flying out of Terminal B? Are both flights on the same reservation? Where are you flying from and to?
