At a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony, New Jersey’s Newark Airport (EWR) gave travelers a glimpse into the new Terminal A, which is now home to Air Canada, American, Delta, JetBlue, and United. Flights will begin leaving the $2.7 billion facility on January 12. Initially, 21 gates will open to travel and the remaining 12 gates will finish later in 2023. This comes at a point when LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport have undergone major makeovers. Now, it’s the Garden State’s turn!
The refurbished space is equipped to handle 33 gates spread out over 1 million square feet. Many people may not realize that Newark is one of the most heavily trafficked airports in the United States, and Terminal A alone is estimated to oversee 14 million passengers annually. The new terminal features high ceilings and airy, light-filled design features, along with murals and public art. There is also 60 percent more seating capacity, four lounges, 60 check-in kiosks, and modern bathrooms. The more than 60 concession options include Starbucks, Jersey Mike’s, Playa Bowls, Dunkin’, BurgerFi, The Office Tavern Grill, Kitchen Step, Bluestone Lane Coffee, and more.
