Important information to know before you travel to/from Newark Airport

To save time at security checkpoints, make sure to be prepared by reviewing the airport’s security measures before you travel. Here are some of the considerations to keep in mind:

  • Newark Airport TransportationPack luggage in layers (to increase visibility of scanned baggage)
  • Have your ID and boarding pass readily available, as well as Visa/passport if applicable
  • Remove outer garments, (jackets, hats, etc) and shoes
  • Empty your pockets of keys, coins and other loose metal objects and place them in your carry-on, so everything may be scanned at once.
  • Only one carry-on bag and one personal item is permitted per person
  • Place as many items as possible in checked baggage; carry-ons should contain only those items needed immediately.
  • If carrying medications, be sure to keep them in their original packaging, and bring accompanying prescription cards.
  • Arrive early to allow for time to proceed through security checkpoints, particularly during high-travel seasons.

What items are allowed or prohibited on flights?

Liquids, aerosols and gels for carry-ons: permitted in limited quantities, (one bag allowed in order to limit total volume.) Place these items into one bag and X-ray them separately from the carry-on bag for faster security checking. Non-essential liquids should be placed in checked luggage.

EWR Airport posts the following parameters for these items: 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure. Medications, baby formula/food and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding 3.4 ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag.

Lithium Batteries: Loose (spare) Lithium batters are not permitted in checked baggage, (only those batteries properly inserted into portable devices.) Certain types of Lithium batteries are permitted in carry-on luggage, such as those used in cell phones or laptops, provided that steps have been taken to cover battery terminals.

Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable. I especially liked the 24 hour and 2 hour trip notification that was sent via email. It was reassuring to know they were following up. I highly recommend Corporate Sedan for any transportation needs!
