I'll leave United States for Beijing this winter and my flight will be:

United Airlines, 1 stop

BOS - EWR 51min EWR - PEK

Is this 51min enough to transfer in Newark airport? Because I'm a international student, so I'm wondering if there's any other checking or process before I leave US in EWR and it may cause missing the flight.

    It appears that both of your flights arrive and depart in Terminal C, so this is plenty of time. – Michael Hampton Nov 15 '15 at 7:54
  • @MichaelHampton Thx! But I'm wondering if there's any checking progress before I leave US to China and it may cost a lot of time. So will the checking happens in BOS or EWR ? – WEIZ Nov 15 '15 at 14:29

There are no exit formalities in the US (ie, no exit immigration). Therefore, your only requirement is that you are able to physically make it to the other terminal within the stipulated time.

In the old days, you used to have a paper I-94 form, but even this information is now digitized so that's another thing you don't have to worry about.

I am not familiar with EWR enough (I last flew a transit through EWR 10 years ago), but what I do know is that if an airline has booked you a ticket, they are required to give you enough of a transit time to make your other flight.

In other words, United is telling you that 51 minutes is enough time for you to get from one flight to the other.
