Due to schedule changes we now have an 81 minute connection at EWR. MXP (UA18 )- EWR (UA 33) - TPA on United. Our group of 4 are traveling on separate tickets. My wife and I are in Business with Global entry and United wants to push us back to a later flight (4 hrs). While our daughter and husband are traveling Economy Plus, do not have Global entry and he travels on a British passport yet their connection has not been changed by airline. Can we make the connection or should we change to later flight? We prefer to stay together.
With global entry and in business you could make it, but they probably couldn't. I would ask to all be on the later flight.
Arriving from Toronto at terminal A with a 51 minute connection time for flight to Aruba at terminal C. Do we have to collect luggage and recheck? Do we have enough time?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do is take the shuttle bus to Terminal C and walk to your departure gate. The shuttle bus runs inside security.
what about checked baggage? do we have to pick it up and take it or is it transferred?
It is transferred for you.
I have my son flying solo first time from Indinapolis to Myrtle. How hard will it be for him to switch and get connection at the EWR airport?
Both flights will likely be in Terminal A. If that's the case it will not be hard at all.
Hi. Have relatives booked United to Memphis and have a stop of 1hr 20mins at Newark. Am trying to organise it for them and as I have never done the trip (unfortunately) I just wanted to know if luggage will be transferred automatically and is it far/difficult for them to find connection? Appreciate your help.
Where are they flying into Newark from?
Connecting from TC to TA to Aruba on United. Should I use the Shuttle Bus or AirTrain to TA?
Do you mean you're going from A to C? Then take the shuttle bus as it runs inside security. Flights to Aruba leave from C.
Arriving at Terminal C from Pittsburgh and departing from Terminal A to Ottawa Canada. What is the process and how much time do you need to transfer. I have 1:55 layover in EWR
You take the shuttle bus from C to A. it runs inside security. You should have plenty of time.
I have a planned flight with a 51 minute stopover on United. The flight is Boston-Charleston, SC with a layover in EWR. Will I have enough time to make the flight if it is in Terminal C?
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are in Terminal C. it's a bit tougher if the flight to Charleston departs from Terminal A, although there is a shuttle from C to A inside security.
Thank you! If I take the shuttle (Not airtrain) from C to A, how long will it take? And the connecting flight leaves 51 minutes after the first one gets in (Just a clarification.)
It takes 10-15 minutes. It's maybe a little slower than the airtrain but it's worth it to not have to go through security again.
I am flying in from St Louis to get a connecting flight to the UK and only have 55 mins between flights. Will this be enough time to make the UK flight?
If both flights are on United that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you arrive in Terminal A, United runs a shuttle inside security to Terminal C where you will depart.
We are arriving on united flight from Halifax , with a connection to Pittsburgh also on united. Do we need to switch terminals and go through security again?
Both flights will probably be in Terminal A, but there's a chance that a flight could be in Terminal C. They are connected inside security by a shuttle bus. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax.
I´m travelling from Mexicoi to Montreal with conection in EWR of 1 hour 35 minutes. With UNITED. I bought the ticket and did not think of conection time. Now Im worried. I have to go thruogh costums and probably recheck my lugagge, Do you think I have enough time?
My flight from Mexico to EWR is UNITED and then the flight from EWR to Monytreal says: Expressjet airlines Inc. dba United express.

After I go through custums will I have to take my checked bag and check in again, will the conection gate be far?
Will I have enough time?
You will re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after you clear customs. You will depart from Terminal A. You will take the AirTrain there and have to go through security there. This is a difficult connection but not impossible.
Thank you!
Do you know if it is easy to find where to take my bag and recheck it?
I wish I would have bought a direct flight. :(
My flight lands in Newark at 7:30 pm and departs at 9:00 pm. Do you know if maybe this is not a very busy hour of the day, Maybe less people go through security and custums at 8 pm? and that will make my conection less stressful. :( :(
Thank you
7:30 PM is indeed after most international arrivals so it will be less crowded then. The Re-check desk is RIGHT after you clear customs.
