Is there any way to move from terminal a to b, or from b to c? I am flying in on Continental, out on Northwest, do I have to go through security? Newark always worries me, because delays are so frequent, but if I have to change terminals and go through security again, I need a minimum 2 hour layover I suspect. Any EWR people have any advise?

I don't recall there being any connections behind security from C to the other terminals but I could be mistaken.

Hi,

To get from Terminal C to Terminal B, you'll need to exit security and take the Air Train. The only way you can go between terminals without clearing security again is through Terminal C and Continental-operated flights out of Terminal A.

If it helps, doing C-B is a lot easier than the other way around. Most times of the day, the security queue at that 'arm' of B is pretty short.

I've flown EWR at all times of day and never had more than a 15 minute wait in security. Relax.  Smile

Continental runs a shuttle bus between the A and C terminals. Since it's run by/for CO, it doesn't stop at B.

It's not a question of relaxing, it's a question of convenience - fly into EWR on Continental Express, buy lunch, something to drink, and I can't take it to terminal B. Absolutely ludicrous for a major US hub not to allow transit between terminals. Look at Atlanta. I can fly in to B, connect to D, and I never leave security. A much better planned airport, even though it's about as crummy as EWR. I really hoped I was missing something here.

Now, Houston -- it sounds like I can't get from A to either B, C or E without leaving security. That's silly, houston used to be a nice airport for transit. Why not make both EWR and IAH like CLE??

Totally incorrect: TerminaLink is a secure side train that linkes B-C-D/E, then there is a bus from one of the B gates to one of the A gates. IAH is truly a transfer airport.

In addition, there's an underground train that links A-B-C-D/E that's outside of security that isn't displayed on the continental map.

EWR is not a connecting airport. CO is lucky that the vast majority of their ops are under one terminal and they have the ability to run the bus between A and C. Otherwise, its crappy connecting. I cannot comment on CLE as I have never been there.



Always wonderers if this "last and final boarding call" is in fact THE last and final boarding call.

However, there is no way to go from terminal A to any other terminal without going outside security. To me, that's not a transit terminal at all - especially since Continental and Northwest are quite closely linked. And, my original question, was going from terminal A to either B or C

Not entirely true. If you're flying on CO and arrive into Terminal A with a connection out of Terminal C (or vice versa), CO runs an airside inter-terminal bus that takes you from A to C.

Slightly off topic, but i am looking to fly from London to Los Angeles, and a few of the cheaper options take me via EWR or JFK. If i were to select flights via either of these airports with a layover of around 8-10 hours, would i be able to go into New York, leaving my luggage in transit, and then return an hour or so before my onward connection? Or would i have to remain airside, or if i were allowed into the city, would I have to take my luggage with me?

It would be nice to go back to New York, especially if it isn't costing anything extra. However i don't fancy 8-10 hours stuck in an airport, and my travelling companion definately wouldn't.

If your bags are checked through, then they will be transferred for you. If not, you can collect your bags and check them in with your new airline as soon as you get the bags, and then go to New York.

From Newark, if you take the AirTran to Newark Airport Station (less than 10 minutes), you can change there for NJ Transit or Amtrak trains to New York Penn Station- the ride is about 25 minutes, and on NJ Transit (the cheaper option) the ticket is somewhere around $12 I think. From JFK, just take the AirTran to Jamaica Station and change for the LIRR to NY-Penn. The AirTran is $5 and the train ticket is about the same I think.

With a 10 hour layover, you have more than enough time to clear immigration, re-check your bags (if necessary) and get into the city for a few hours of sightseeing and exploring. Just be sure to leave yourself plenty of time on the return to account for delays (the trains often are to the airport), and plan to be at the the airport an hour ahead of your domestic departure (up to 90 minutes if its peak time).

If you need any more information, I can definitely help you out-- just send me an e-mail!
