Connecting at Newark
Since partnering with OTG, an expert in developing retail and dining spaces for the travel industry, United is completely reimagining what an airport terminal should look like allowing for a better customer experience regardless of where you are connecting to. The terminal renovations include thoughtfully designed elements that enhance both the feel and the functionality of the space. Gate areas are equipped with custom seating and tables, and several gates feature iPads that customers can use. MileagePlus members can even use award miles for dining at Newark Terminal C.
Connecting through a large hub can cause apprehension the first time, but it doesn’t have to. With our easy to navigate instructions contained within this section and a downloadable PDF card that you can take with you, your connecting flight worries just disappeared. Flights between Presque Isle and Newark typically depart and arrive from Terminal A, Concourse A2, or Terminal C, Concourse C3. United mainline flights operate to and from Terminal C, while flights to other United Express destinations will typically operate to and from Terminal A.
When you land at Newark, be sure to check the United monitors, which list flights alphabetically by destination, for the gate number of your connecting flight. There could be more than one flight to your connecting city, so cross-reference the flight number on your boarding pass. When in doubt, ask a gate agent.
It’s important to note you do not need to re-clear security to travel between Terminal A and Terminal C. United even operates a frequent shuttle between the terminals to assist customers in transferring terminals.
In Terminal A, you can catch the shuttle near Gate A28 – just follow the signs and go down one level to the ground-level shuttle boarding area.
In Terminal C, you can catch the shuttle near Gate C71 – again, follow the signs and go down one level to the ground-level shuttle boarding area.
The shuttle also makes stops in Terminal B, at Concourses B1 and B3, for international connections to Star Alliance partner flights. Some United international flights also arrive at Terminal B.
Use the maps on this downloadable guide to locate the concourse where your gate is located. All gates numbers are preceded by the terminal letter – A, B, or C.
