Newark Airport’s New $3 Billion Terminal A Expected to Open in November

The new Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport will open in November, its main tenant United Airlines told pilots this week in a memo obtained by Airline Weekly.

The Chicago-based carrier plans to move into an initial 12 gates in Terminal A on around November 1, its Newark Chief Pilot Captain Fabian Garcia told pilots Wednesday. United will later expand its footprint to 15 gates, or nearly half of the 33 gates in the new $2.7 billion facility.

“Once the [Newark Terminal A] opens, we will increase our schedule accordingly to more than 400 flights” at Newark, Garcia said. United plans to operate narrowbody aircraft, for example Airbus A320 or Boeing 737 Max jets, from the new facility.
