View Full Version : Flying thru Newark airport.... have ?'s

09-25-2005, 10:51 PM
Hi all. Just found a more reasonable airfare for my Feb. travel from Detroit to Orlando. It is a combo NW/Continental flight. I have never been in the Newark airport. I would have 1 hour between connecting flights, would this be adequate in this airport? Does anyone know if NW and Cont. are in the same terminal? Lastly, having never flown Cont. just wondering how reliable they are?

Thanks so much for any info! :wave:

Continental and Northwest are in 2 different terminals but there is a monorail which connects all terminals and it runs every few minutes. See: http://www.panynj.gov/aviation/ewrframe.HTM.

I have to fly to Newark quite regularly (one of the many 'perks' of my job) on Continental. They are generally quite reliable. Newark airport itself can get quite congested at peak travel times though, and if you're traveling at those times, it could effect your plans. It's no fault of the airline.

Continental has its own terminal (C) since Newark is one of its hubs. Northwest is in a different terminal (B). As the previous poster has said, there is a monorail or 'air train' that connects all terminals and rental car stations. The monorails are very timely. I believe they are within a 5 minute interval of each other. You should have plenty of time to make your connection, barring any weather delays.

Have a great trip!
