Final Gates Become Operational at Newark Liberty Terminal A

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has announced that the new Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is fully operational following the opening of its final five gates.

As part of this achievement, additional retail and dining outlets have opened, and Delta Air Lines has transferred its operations to the new terminal from Terminal B.

The new Terminal A features 33 gates equipped with the latest digital technologies, modern passenger amenities and a range of dining and retail options.

With the new facility fully operational, PANYNJ has now committed to fully re-envisioning the entire airport complex. Last year, it selected Arup as the master planner to design a framework for future development until 2065.

Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole said:

“The full rebirth of Newark Liberty International Airport begins with this gleaming new terminal. We are proud to welcome Delta Air Lines to its spectacular new home in Terminal A, as we embark on a comprehensive reimagining for the entire airport.”

Delta Air Lines has joined Air Canada, American Airlines, JetBlue and United Airlines in the new Terminal A.

Alongside this relocation, the airline has opened a new 7,000-square-foot passenger lounge within the terminal.

Ginny Elliott, Delta Air Lines’s vice president of East Coast airport operations said:

“Delta’s move to the transformed and modernized Terminal A helps us further enhance the travel journey for our Newark customers for years to come. This relocation also makes it possible for us to open a new, larger Delta Sky Club, where lounge guests can relax and recharge before their flights.”

To further upgrade facilities at EWR, a privately financed Consolidated Rent-A-Car (ConRac) facility is also expected to open later this year. This 2.7 million-square-foot facility will consolidate 10 rental car companies to offer a streamlined rental process.

In addition, PANYNJ has also committed to building a brand-new AirTrain Newark system.
