Newark Airport’s billion-dollar and long-delayed Terminal A is finally set to open on January 12th.
“The Port Authority is pleased to announce that the first flights in and out of Newark Liberty’s new, world-class Terminal A will commence on January 12th. We look forward to welcoming passengers to this magnificent, state-of-the-art facility, where they will enjoy best-in-class functionality, inspiring public art, delicious local concessions, and a transformative experience from curb to gate,” said Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Director of Corporate Communications Thomas Pietrykoski.
A ribbon-cutting event was held last month for the state-of-the-art terminal, with the $2.7 billion renovation being declared by officials the “largest design-build project in New Jersey history.”
The opening date was originally set for December 8th but was delayed due to testing of the terminal’s fire alarms and security system, as well as concern from airlines about opening a new terminal during peak holiday travel season.
