The ABCs of the Newark Airport Lost and Found

If you have had the misfortune of losing personal belongings at Newark Airport, this guide to the Newark Airport Lost and Found policy will help you put things into perspective to retrieve your item quickly! Also, find out how you can file a lost item request letter in a matter of minutes !

Understanding How the EWR Lost and Found Office Operates

Newark International Airport lets passengers who have lost their luggage or any item report their missing belongings in two ways:

  • In person at the airport’s Lost and Found office
  • Via an online form on the airport’s website

When submitting a lost item request via an online form, you are required to fill it out in a way that helps the Newark staff locate your lost item most efficiently.

The form consists of these mandatory fields:

  1. Your email address and cell phone number
  2. Airport terminal or airline you traveled with
  3. Details about the place where you lost your item if you remember
  4. A detailed description of the lost item

You should note that the Newark Lost and Found office is not in charge of finding and returning items left at TSA security checkpoints and onboard an aircraft.

Here is the breakdown of who to reach out to depending on where you lost your item:
