The History Of Newark Liberty International Airport

I’m particularly excited for Air New Zealand starting flights to Auckland from Newark. That will be a route which I also hope to have the opportunity to fly IRL.

When is that happening?

Yep. There’s also an American flag with the numbers 93 at the TSA Pre-Check/Clear security check point in Terminal C.

Never noticed that one, good eye!


Yeah we don’t have too many. Then again no one goes to DTLA unless they have to 😂

Oh, forgot to mention this. United Express is the biggest airline at Terminal A, operating nearly 40% of flights from there.

Sorry, EWR police here. 😂

It was supposed to stat this year but got postponed due to the pandemic.

JetBlue is a close second my friend. Where’s the source???

Thanks for the info!

United controls over 70% of the slots at EWR. If you look at the daily amount of United Express flights and compare to the slots they have at Terminal A, you are nearing 40% (percent of Terminal A, not total airport percentage).

Article from 2016. Slightly outdated, but the percentage is still above 70%.

True, but you aso have to remember not every gate is filled at every second. But it is most likely true, as JetBlue probably only controls 5-10% of slots atl Newark, although that’s a lot for a larger airport like Newark where united has almost every slot.

Awesome topic! I’ve never been there but It seems kinda better and modern than JFK. I hope to visit it and see the flag of gate 17, my respects.

Some time ago Malaysia Airlines used to operate to Newark, first via Dubai, and then via Stockholm Arlanda. It was a strange routing on Malaysia Airline’s part, however that would be one of their most successful routes. As successful as routes such as KL-Sydney and KL-Amsterdam.

It’s from these 2 youtubers. It’s… hard to explain . Only the OG viewers will know…

I love the details in this thread! Nice job!

Maybe soon in the future, you could do San Jose International Airport (SJC/KSJC) as it has a peculiar history and one of the weirdest Class Charlie airspaces, departure procedures, and approach procedures in the United States
