Hey there. My girlfriend will be arriving tomorrow 5:15 pm in Newark (Terminal C) from Puerto Plata (Domenican Republic) and her connecting flight will be at 6:30 pm to Zurich, Switzerland (website says Terminal C as well). It´s United Airlines. On the way to the US, immigration took her over 1 hour in Washington...How should she make it now on the way back? What happens, if she misses the flight, will the book her on next flight for free? She also carries bulk luggage (Kite surfing equipment) with her...has to get it from the baggage claim and check it in again. Calling the United customer service they can´t do anything about it...they say it will work...but I doubt...Thanks for your help!
She should be fine. If it's united to united flight not changing airlines. All within terminal C. 99 percent of the time that connection is very do able.
Baggage handling: Are there skycaps or other persons available, for hire of course, to assist passengers with lifting heavy bags both at new work and at destination in New York City?
There are skycaps at the Newark airport. If you take the train into New York, there will be nobody to help you there. You will also be on your own getting your bags onto the train.
I am a US citizen living permanently in Germany. My wife and three kids (7, 5, 3) are all German citizens. We will be entering the US through EWR from London for vacation.

Now: is there a chance for all five of us to go through customs together? Either international or better yet US lane? Point is after a 12 hour trip with three kids it is much easier together...😊

Greets and thx!
If it is their first time using ESTA they have to go through the agent line, not the express line for US/Canadian citizens/permanent residents and repeat ESTA users, but you can go with them.
If I book a flight that arrives at EWR from London at 3pm, will I have enough time to catch a 5:45pm flight on Southwest Airlines?

I'm wondering how long it typically takes to clear customs, gather luggage, travel to SWA's terminal and check-in.
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

What airline are you flying in on? That connection time is moderately risky.
The flight from London is on United.
Then yes, that is moderately risky.
Thanks. What would you say is a reasonable amount of time to allow for this type of connection?
I'd want over 3 hours to feel more comfortable.
My daughter is flying from Indy to NY and catching international flight to France. Does the airport have a service that meets my daughter in the arrival terminal and assists her to the international terminal?
There is no such service. What airlines is she flying? Newark doesn't have a singular "International Terminal".
Hello,
Are the handicap accessible toilets at EWR single stall? My mother-in-law is travelling with her brother, so she can't use a handicap stall that is inside a womens restroom. Thanks!
I lost my phone on a plane last week going to Liberia, Costa Rica and want to see if it's at the lost and found at Newark.
what time is Sunday Mass at Newark Airport chapel?
There aren't any scheduled religious services there.
Thanks! Actually found on another site it might be 1030am. Will find out tomorrow... God be with you!
I am arriving at EWR from China for an onward flight to South America, this arrival and departure are both international flights. Do I still need to go through immigration, recheck my bags, etc., or is EWR like foreign airports that have international transit areas where you don't need to do all that?
Yes, you still have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.
