Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) has achieved the next operational milestone in constructing its new Terminal A, with the opening of seven additional gates.

In addition, six more concession and retail offerings have now opened in the new facility over the past week.

Terminal A initially opened earlier this year with 21 out of 33 gates in operation.

The seven newly opened gates will be used for United Airlines and JetBlue operations, meaning both airlines now have access to their full allocation within the new terminal.

The remaining five gates are also set to become operational over the next 60 days to transition Delta Air Lines from Terminal B to the new Terminal A.

Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole said:

“The opening of Terminal A at Newark Liberty is a historic project representing the agency’s largest ever single investment in New Jersey. These openings mark an exciting milestone in our vision of delivering state-of-the-art terminals at the airport.”

This milestone is part of the second phase of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s (PANYNJ) 2.7 billion USD transformation of Terminal A at EWR.

The new terminal replaced a previous outmoded terminal that opened in 1973. It features digital technology, modern passenger amenities, and improved dining and retail options.

Following this success, the Port Authority now plans to build a new AirTrain Newark system to further modernise the airport.
