EWR Airport is located within city limits of Newark & Elizabeth, and is only 16 miles from midtown Manhattan - situated near the New Jersey Turnpike (Exits 13A & 14), Routes 1 & 9, and I-78. The 'Airtrain Newark' serves all terminals and parking facilities P1 through P4, and continues on to the Newark Liberty Airport Station - connecting there to other trains and subways in New Jersey & New York City.
With three long runways, and 40.4M passengers in 2016, Newark Liberty International is hub to United Airlines, and is served by all of the major U.S. and numerous international airlines, offering nonstop and connecting flights around the country and the world.
- TSA urges passengers to arrive for domestic flights 2 hours, for international flights 3 hours prior to scheduled departures.
- Recent TSA checkpoint improvements: The new 19-lane securiy checkpoint at TC now has 17 lanes with a new system - automatig the bins used by passengers to deposit their belongings - to be retrieved after each use and sent back to the front of the line - reducing bottlenecks. Passengers pull bins from underneath the conveyor belt and pack their items in a partitioned section of the belt. The remaining two lanes with standard sreening are for oversized items.
- All terminals have new roadway access (the roadway approach splits into Levels 1 & 2/3, which splits again into separate roadways for specific airlines) and new terminal level designations: Levels 1, 2 and 'All Gates'.
- Uniform signs & new roadway approaches:
- yellow signs point to airline gates, ticketing and flight services;
- green signs point to ground transportation, and
- black signs point to restrooms, telephones and other amenities.

- Construction on a 'new 3-level Terminal A to replace the aging current TA is to be built in a T configuration with 33 new domestic gates & intended to operate as a common-use facility - including a ticketing lobby, equipped with the latest check-in options, providing efficient passenger processing /movement. Baggage processing & screening are to be consolidated. The terminal will have new departures & arrivals roadways, a 3,000-space parking garage with pedestrian bridge to the Terminal to be linked to the Air Train. The new Terminal A, with 33 airline gates, its own parking garage, and able to handle 13.6M passengers annually, is scheduled to open in phases up to 2020, with total completion by 2022.
- The AirTrain system is under repair and thereby should extend its life until 2030 (while a new replacement is being sought).
