The ribbon cutting is today:

https://newjerseyglobe.com/the-otoole-chronicles/the-otoole-chronicles-newark-liberty-redefines-itself-for-the-future/

Newark Liberty International Airport is being transformed for the 21st century. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates Newark Liberty, as well as LaGuardia and JFK airports, has made the largest investment in the agency’s history in New Jersey. The result is a stunning, 1 million-square-foot, $2.7 billion new Terminal A connected to a new public parking/car rental facility, and the development of a plan to construct a new AirTrain Newark to replace the outdated existing AirTrain.

And this is just the beginning.

A new world-class Terminal B will be designed and built, as the “Visioning Plan” for future development of Newark Liberty is developed in partnership with Arup, one of the world’s top aviation planning and design firms, and leading architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Future work at Newark Liberty will expand economic opportunities for the cities of Newark and Elizabeth, and for the State of New Jersey, with a continued emphasis to showcase Jersey-based businesses and restaurants inside the new terminals

Will EWR be getting the new United Club Fly grab-n-go club in the new Terminal A? How about TC?

I ask because it’s a club concept that I would most certainly use!

No plans announced for a United Club Fly but the shuttered customer service counters around gate 107 would be an ideal place for one…

TPG’s article is pretty good. https://thepointsguy.com/news/newark-ai ... irst-look/

Terminal A opens on 12/8 with 21 of the 33 gates operational, and the remaining 12 opening prior to next summer. A1 through A28 all appear to be accessible, so I’m not sure which 6 of those 27 gates (A13 does not exist) will not be operational initially. A29-A34 on the north concourse will be closed off until Phase 2 opens.

Not in the article, but I’ve heard 11 gates to start for UA, with the other 10 gates for AA, AC, and B6 (not sure of the breakdown for those 3 carriers). Technically they’re all common use but UA will have “preferential” access to 11 of them. DL moves in when the rest of the gates open, and UA will also get a few of the Phase 2 gates as well.

By next summer I’m guessing Terminal A will have the following for number of gates-

United- 16
JetBlue- 5
Delta- 4
American- 4
Air Canada- 2
Common use/overflow- 2

Just a personal guess.

United runs a mixture of mainline and express between some of those cities. Will the express flights for those cities use C? Or will they use A?

Regardless, UA is gonna need more shuttle buses it seems.


If you look at the schedules, they go all mainline. For example, using March 24, 2023:

Atlanta 5 73G, 3 A320
Austin 4 A320, 1 A319
DFW 6 A320
MIA 3 A320, 5 738

MSY 4 A320, 1 A319
FLL 9 738
PDX 1 73G, 1 738
CHS 4 A319, 1 73G


What is the rationale behind these routes? I see a trend that its all narrow body and O/D, but why are these specifically cherrypicked. Surprised about LAS, PDX, SAN, PHX, and SEA.

The existing concourses will be torn down for ramp space, and the headhouse will eventually be demolished for the Terminal B replacement.

Pretty sure you just answered your own question. O/D to prevent as many terminal swaps as possible.

Any idea if there will be any use for the head house for the time being (office space, storage, etc) or will it just sit there vacant until it gets demolished? Seems like it could be used for something useful until that time comes.

That can't be right for either. AA uses like 7 and DL at least 5 probably more.

UA putting certain mainline flights in the terminal will cause a headache & especially with no Monorail up and running. That signage is going to a nightmare, sort of back when CO used to do this out of A. I also think from an infrastructure perspective to get a new Monorail going and they should keep part of the old Terminal A as a platform around for testing.

The new terminal has two dedicated premium check in areas, one is set up for B6 Mint and Mosaic Elite flyers. The second is not dedicated yet.

There is a dedicated post-security shuttle to Terminal B & C.

I assume that there is a new monorail connecting all 3 terminals and beyond is coming however? Am I remembering correctly? I assume it will be a wider car!

I cannot recall the “easier” mass transit connections from Manhattan. Will there be connections from both the Moynihan Terminal and the WTC transit hub (the Oculus too?)
How about the ever growing Jersey City side gaining access to the monorail?

The pictures are beautiful! Certainly NOT the Newark Airport I remember from the 1970’s and picking up family members from Laker flights. I was a young teenager but I remember back then the airport felt dark and kinda sad, despite being relatively new.

Delta is only running about 22 flights per day in January. They probably want more for their early AM startup but it’s hard to justify a 5th gate if you’re barely running over 5 flights per gate in a constrained airport like EWR. Even in summer 2023, which is probably still an inflated schedule at this point, they only have 27 flights scheduled.

American is similar with 23 flights in January and 28 in July.

DL has 28 flights in January… where did you get your numbers from?

Same thing for AA, I’m seeing 26.

You’re right, sorry. I just took an average daily for the month but it looks like Delta is only running 50% of their operation for the first 8 days of the month as well as every Saturday. Either way, I still think it’s tough to justify more gates when UA is easily running 8+ flights per narrowbody gate.

They still have a lot of work to do where those gates are located. 5 months after the first new gates open seems reasonable.

This new terminal really looks great, it’s design in how it pays homage to the original terminal A in its design gives it charm and all the art they’ve incorporated into its spaces give it a sophisticated look.

That said I’m really excited about the new Terminal B project, I know what they’ve released are rough renderings but it looks to be huge. In the renderings it dwarfs the new Terminal A.

I remember 1989 when the Port Authority built the international arrivals hall in the B-3 concourse. That was done during Eastern’s strike when they consolidated their EWR operations to the B-2 concourse. That project brought SAS over from Kennedy. It also brought British airways, Air France and Lufthansa to the airport. Later in 1996 they expanded it to include a new large arrivals hall and the B-2 concourse. That expansion also led to several more international carriers adding EWR.

EWR has actually been doing pretty well as of late in both luring new International carriers as well as bringing back former carriers like Air France, KLM etc.. A new Terminal B has that same potential for luring new and former carriers back, I’m looking at you Korean, EVA, Virgin and Qatar.

Very optimistic of the author. They still have a lot of work to do, and that still has *ZERO* to do with optimizing the runways which they desperately need.

So I'm guessing arrivals into the new terminal for United could really be from any city as long as those aircraft are being used for flights to one of the 23 select destinations? Unless there are dedicated aircraft for those cities it seems like it would be an inefficient operation otherwise. I'm curious how the operations will pan out.

That's what Continental did previously, they flew to DCA, IAD, ORD, DFW, ATL, BOS from Terminal A. All flights departing and arriving were those destinations.

I'd really love for United to join the bandwagon here & commit to exploring a replacement for Terminal C at some point; similar to what Delta did in LGA. Realizing this is a long ways a way since who knows when a terminal B replacement will occur.

I’m sure they will get straight on to that, right after the new concourse at IAD opens :duck:

Sarcasm aside, it must surely be a long term plan for both the Port Authority and United, but Terminal B will come first so it’s realistically not going to happen until the 2030s. Terminal C will be coming up on 50 years old by then, so that would be a good timeframe to be looking at replacing it.

How about the ever growing Jersey City side gaining access to the monorail?

The pictures are beautiful! Certainly NOT the Newark Airport I remember from the 1970’s and picking up family members from Laker flights. I was a young teenager but I remember back then the airport felt dark and kinda sad, despite being relatively new.

Lol…
I am old enough to remember the thick dust on the unused counters and the snow blowing under the gate doors of C, a year after PE opened

I am in the same boat. Flying to Vegas on January 6th.

Happy (nearly) New Year to all. As January will be here in a few short days any update to when the new terminal opens (wasn't the new opening date January 5 or something like that? Any change to that date?) Any status updates on the remaining tests to be conducted that delayed the earlier December opening? Thanks so much!

Nope. My boarding pass says my flight is departing from Terminal C. I have another trip to HND this May but I’ll only be able to check out the non-sterile area of A, assuming the terminal is even open by then.

There will be an airside bus if you’d like to venture over there, when all this is complete.

My parents are flying down to DFW next Friday to visit me and my family (Friday the 13th! :shock: ) so I'm hoping they get to fly out of it (i want to hear their take on it - need to live vicariously through them and my brother who all still live in NJ and use EWR very frequently! :D )

There's a readiness/"test passenger" event coming up on Jan 6th, so I assume it'll still be a few weeks beyond that date.

Looks like the first flight to arrive at the new Terminal is United flight # 2341, SNA-EWR. It departs SNA at 8:56 tonight and arrives EWR at 5:00am Thursday. Gate A-23.

Wonder what the last flight to depart the old terminal A this evening will be? Once final flights arrive for the evening I'm guessing they'll be moved over to the new terminal over night? Can't wait to hear from everyone how it is.

A lot of moving pieces, the United Express flights using the current Terminal A will move to Terminal C and about 20-25 routes that are mainline flown from a terminal C will move to Terminal A. I like this because it gives a huge chunk of United’s EWR domestic customers a new Terminal experience and it also gives some relief from crowding in Terminal C.

This create some capacity for additional international flying from Terminal C, perhaps when the A321XLRs arrive.

Just checked in for my AA flight tomorrow and it initially showed as A35 in the old terminal but has now changed to A8, so must be the new terminal.

Does anyone know if the airtrain is servicing the new terminal? All the maps I found don't show the new terminal.
