The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) today opened to the public Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal A.
The 33-gate terminal expands airport capacity by 20 percent, replacing a 50-year-old facility with a 1-million-square-foot, modern transportation hub. Travel amenities include leading-edge airport technologies, low-impact sustainability features, as well as uniquely New Jersey experiential multimedia.
A decade in the making, the $2.7-billion Tutor Perini/Parsons joint venture is the largest design-build project in New Jersey history. Terminal A is expected to achieve LEED® Silver certification.
“Newark Airport’s new Terminal A is a world-class, 21st-century marvel — with cutting-edge check-in, security, and touchless e-gate technology,” said PANYNJ Executive Director Rick Cotton at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “Public art, iconic concessions, and highly original digital displays also create an unmistakable New Jersey sense of place.”
Following a phased approach, the airport will initially place 21 gates into operation, minimizing potential disruption to airlines and passengers. The remaining 12 gates will become fully operational in 2023.
