Newark Liberty International Airport (Newark Liberty International Airport, IATA: EWR) is the second busiest airport in the vicinity of New York in terms of passenger traffic. The airport is not located in the state of New York, but in the neighboring state of New Jersey, near the city of New York (north of Staten Island). The distance from the airport to Manhattan is about 10 miles (15 kilometers), to Staten Island - 4 miles (6 kilometers). John F. Kennedy International Airport is the busiest airport in New York.
The airport has three terminals. The distance between terminals "A" and "B" is about 500 meters, and between terminals "B" and "C" is also about 500 meters too. There are car parking, bus stops and a hotel located in the space between the terminals.
- Terminal A handles only domestic flights and flights from (to) Canada. Terminal A is the only terminal in which there are no immigration services.
- Terminal B serves mainly foreign air carriers.
- Terminal C serves United Airlines and United Express.
How to get to
AirTrain Monorail connects the airport terminals to the Newark Liberty International Airport Station. (The distance is approximately 2 kilometers from Terminal B to the station in a straight line.) You can get to Manhattan (to the New York Penn Station) on the New Jersey Transit and Amtrak trains. (The NJ Transit train is slightly cheaper than the Amtrak.)
Be careful! The train also stops at New Jersey Penn Station, before the New York Penn Station. Do not confuse. You can easily find the way to the desired station, paying attention to informational boards.
You can get to Manhattan by bus. Bus stops are located near each of the three terminals of the airport. Buses arrive at the Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan in New York. (The bus station is located on 8th Avenue, between 40th Street and 42nd Street.) The bus ride is a bit more expensive and lasts a little longer compared to the train. But the bus may be more convenient in some cases. (You will be helped to load (unload) baggage, there is no need to transfer at the station.)
Newark Airport Express bus stops in Manhattan: Grand Central Station (41st Street between Park & Lexington Avenues), Bryant Park (42nd Street & 5th Avenue), Port Authority Bus Terminal (41st Street between 8th and 9th Avenues). Opening hours: from Manhattan to Airport 4:45 am - 2:00 am, from Manhattan Airport 4:15 am - 1:00 am.
Taxi is the most convenient form of transport if you need to get from the airport to New York (or back to the airport). This is especially convenient, if you are traveling with children or if you have large luggage with you. Taxi is available at any time of the day. This is another advantage. If you need to get to John F. Kennedy Airport, this can also be done by taxi.
