I am flying from Dublin, Ireland to Denver, Colorado on Thursday, with a stopover in Newark. My Dublin-Newark flight lands at 15:45. My connecting flight to Denver with United takes off at 18:29. Will this be enough time to make the connection, and what procedure should I follow in order to make sure both myself and my checked luggage are put on the flight to Denver?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. If both flights are on the same reservation on United then all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Both flights are on the same reservation with Aer Lingus. Should I still simply proceed to departure gate?
Yes, but the departure gate will be in a different terminal so you have to take a shuttle bus.
I am traveling tomorrow to Minneapolis and my flight arrives from Brussels to Terminal B at 1.20pm, then i have to go to Terminal C to get my flight to Minneapolis which leaves at 3:01 (both are United flights).
Will I have enough time to go through the whole process in 1:40 minutes? Should I ask any priority to go through customs?
Thank you iun advance,
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You don't get to go to the head of the line because you have a tight connection - almost everyone on your plane will.
I have a 50 min in between my flight that lands at Terminal C and my flight that departs from terminal A. If I check a bag - will my checked luggage make the connection? And if it doesn't make the connection, will I be stuck in Newark waiting for the next flight?
Yes, you and your bags can make the connection. Your bags not making the connection doesn't mean you can't. United runs a shuttle bus inside security from gate C71 to their gates in Terminal A.
I have a domestic flight that arrives in terminal C, gate 109 and departs an hour later from terminal A, gate 24. How do I get from terminal to terminal and is an hour enough time?
United runs a shuttle bus from gate C71 to their gates in A (including A24) inside security. Take that bus.
Hi. I'm hoping to get some idea how long it might take to go through the immigration and customs on arrival at EWR. I will be traveling from LHR on a non-US passport, arriving around 3:30 pm on Thursday this week and am hoping to catch a 5pm greyhound bus from the Newark Bus Station (will uber from EWR for a 10-15 min ride). Thanks!
I think it will be fairly difficult for you to make that bus.
I'm flying from Heathrow to Dulles and I'm a non-US resident, I have a 1 hour 55 minute stop at Newark. I've never had a connecting flight, would this be enough time? Also, what do you have to do on a connecting flight?
If both flights are on united/United Express, in Newark you will 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 your departure terminal if it's different from your arrival terminal, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Yeah both are United, thank you very much
Hi, I'm flying ex DUS to CMH and am connecting through Newark Liberty. The schedule to arrive in EWR at 2 p.m. and leaving to CMH 4:10 p.m. (connection offered through airline (Lufthansa).
is that connection time sufficient?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi. I'm not a Us citiz3n, flying from Bogota to Rome with 90 min connection at Newark. Is it enough time and could you guide me on how should I proceed once I land in Newark
Realistically that's not enough time. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk if they are tagged to Rome or at the check-in desk if they aren't, then possibly change terminals, then go through security and to your departure gate.
Hi Zap,

Thanks for your quick reply. Bags should be tagged to Rome as the flight is with United all the time, we don't have to change terminal, the flight was bought BOG-ROM and United tells me is a valid connection. Do you think is still risky to have this ticket?

You will still have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs in Newark. It is a valid connection but just barely. It is risky. There is also a fair chance you could arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C, which requires a terminal change, obviously.
Hell i'm arriving At Newark from Venice at 2.20pm And i have a Connection after 1h30 minutes To Washington. do You think i'll have enought time To Pass us customs And Take The flight? thanks
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I am taking Amtrak to Newark Airport and taking shuttle to airport. Do I get off at United terminal or should I get off at overseas terminal?
There is no "Overseas terminal". Take the AirTrain to Terminal C if your flight leaves from Terminal C and Terminal A if it leaves from Terminal A.
