I'll be traveling through EWR in a few weeks time and as I've never done a connection at Newark I was wondering how much time I should leave.

I arrive on BA185 from LHR at 1.10pm and am hoping to leave for Albany on CO2314 at 4.40pm. I expect it'll be enough time but I just wanted to check. What's the minimum amount of time I should allow to do this sort of connection at EWR as it seems I'll be doing this on a fairly regular basis.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

It should be plenty, unless of course, your BA flight is delayed. You will need about 45 minutes from touchdown to clear customs and immigrations (the earlier hour of arrival works in your favor)...and while it's a pain to go to terminal C - and the lines for security -- you would sill have a good 2 1/2 hours for your connection.

Hope this helps,

Best,

This seems like PLENTY of time.

You'll arrive in Terminal B and clear immigration. Then, you'll claim your bag and clear customs. (Last time I did this at EWR B, Customs inspection consisted of an grumpy woman glaring at me as I walked out the door. She didn't look at a single bag.)

From there, assuming you're not on a single itinerary, you'll need take the AirTran to Terminal C and check your bag with CO, reclear security, and board. If you ARE on a single itinerary, it's probably best to use the same process.  Wink

While delay-prone in the late afternoon and evening, EWR is actually a decent airport at which to transfer (certainly better than JFK, for example), and there's plenty of food and shopping at Terminal C.

Unless the weather is so bad you can't land in EWR, you should be fine.

Thanks, that's set my mind at rest! It was either this option or spend a far greater proportion of the afternoon at JFK, which I really really didn't fancy.

Too bad they don't have a flag stop. You'll be able to wave at Albany on your way into EWR. Most of the Europe - EWR flights cross over ALB at 16,000 feet on their way South.

You can get your bags tagged all the way to ALB by BA, whether on the same or different itineraries. You will have to claim your bags when you get to EWR. Right after you exit the doors from customs, there's a baggage drop off site where they will rescan your bag and send it off to your next flight. You won't have to deal with carrying your bags between B and C. But when you do check in at CO in Terminal C, make sure you talk to an agent either at ticketing or at the gate and show them your baggage tag coupons so that they can link your bags to your itinerary and meet you at ALB.

The international arrivals terminal is pretty well staffed during the early afternoons. You should move through customs pretty quickly. As mentioned above, the Airtran is centralized to all terminals and relatively quick.

I will warn you, terminal C is quite large and most of the express flights(2314 is a CRJ) depart from gates C110-115 which is at the end of one of the fingers. If your flight lands on-time, you don't have to worry, but if it is running late, be cognizant that, even with the people movers, it is a little bit of a haul.

Have a great flight.

Have your bags tagged by BA in LHR all the way onto Albany. You will have to pick up your bag in Terminal B and go through Customs. After you clear the customs area, we have a recheck point at the bottom of the ramp. Take your bag there and let them know you are continuing on Continental to Albany. We will be able to print you out a boarding pass right there and take your bag from you. At that point just take the AirTrain to Terminal C and pass through security. As long as our recheck point is open in Terminal B, which it is a majority of the time, you will not need to go to our domestic ticket counters in Terminal C.
