Take a guided tour of Newark Liberty Airport’s (EWR) Building 1 and Terminal A with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey! EWR’s Building 1 opened in 1934 and was the airport’s original terminal. Building 1 also housed the first airport restaurant, air traffic control tower, and guide lights for the first night flights. In 2000, at risk of being demolished for a new runway, the building was cut into three pieces and painstakingly moved 3,700 feet to its current location, a feat of engineering that took five months. Today, Building 1 is home to the Port Authority and Port Authority Police Department administration offices. See areas that are normally closed to the public, exploring the historic lobby area of this restored Art Deco building that houses aviation memorabilia and an airport museum. EWR’s newest terminal, Terminal A, commenced operations in January 2023. The $2.7 billion Terminal Redevelopment Program modernized and replaced the old Terminal A. The project provided associated roadways, airside improvements, and a new parking garage. With over 1 million sq. ft. and 33 gates, locally inspired art, and world-class amenities, Terminal A reflects the Port Authority’s commitment to providing the best experience possible for air travel passengers. See Terminal A’s public areas ,and learn about the work behind creating this new aviation landmark.
