Why is there no fourth concourse beside the third concourse at EWR Terminal C

Tue Aug 16, 2022 5:48 pm

Is there a reason why there’s no fourth concourse at Terminal C where the UA jets are parked? It would be a good idea to build a fourth concourse so that it would reduce congestion for UA flights.

If I had to guess, probably just limited utility. You could only have gates on one side and it would be a loooooong walk from the 80s/90s gates. The C-3 concourse (the 120s/130s gates) was built around 15 years after Terminal C opened.

There’s literally no space.

EWR’s biggest issue is probably runway/airspace capacity. I’m not sure more gates is really the answer to the problem.

Make no mistake, UA likes having ops across all the terminals as it helps keep others out.

The stub to the left of the C-3 concourse once served as the CO Express concourse.

To all those people saying a C4 concourse would serve no purpose, that is inaccurate. This concourse has long been rumored/planned by UA and CO. UA does not want to have ground boarding at EWR, it only does so because gates at EWR are a HUGE problem. The concourse has only not come to fruition because of the cost and future uncertainties of terminal C.
