Newark Airport renovations and updates

This terminal’s opening has been delayed too many times. Not 100% surprised given this project’s been shaky from the beginning.

ETA for opening is now in January but nobody is sure what the date will be.

i suspect they may have rethought the idea of opening a brand new terminal a couple of weeks before christmas.

it doesnt seem smart to try something new this time of year.

They’re finally once again attempting to advance the airtrain replacement.

A user experience event is going on at EWR on the 6th and will allow people to be “test passengers” to enable the airport operators to see if the airport terminal is actually efficient or whatnot. I might try and participate and give my critique of the airport terminal if I have time.

New update:
Couldn’t go to the event because I ‘conveniently’ got sick today but I was able to source an opening date (hopefully for real this time since it’s the 5th time it’s been delayed). Thursday, January 12th, next week is the new opening date. I’ll be flying out in May so on that date I will write a detailed review of the terminal and share my thoughts.

EWR opened today on 1/12


It’s open and full of activity.

There was a security breach and a power outage the day the terminal opened as well.
Here’s some new info on EWR.
