EWR is an exceptionally easy airport for connections if you are only flying on CO
. They have one terminal at EWR
(Terminal C) that is connected entirely post-security. If you are arriving COEx, you have a maybe 5-8 minute walk to get to your mainline gate, and if you are on mainline, it could be right next door up to ten minutes away. Take a look at their terminal map:
The curved area where ticketing is highlighted in purple is where dropoff occurs. The ticket counters are all along this curve, international upstairs and domestic downstairs. Security is behind the ticket counters, with stations in front of the entrances to C-1 (on the right, mainline), C-2 (in the middle, COEx), and C-3 (on the left, mainline - the newest one). Behind the security screening stations is one long hallway lined with glass that goes between the three concourses, with a hallway extending off of the corridor into each concourse. The map doesn't show it very well - the rather large rectangle in front of C-3 extends all the way between the three concourses. It couldn't be easier for connections.
