I don’t know why, but it really annoys me when people say I flew from for example " LHR England to KEWR NY" . Isn’t Newark technically located in New Jersey. I find it weird and annoying when people mess this up. I’m sorry I know it’s not a big deal but it really annoys me. Do any of you guys feel the same way. I’m not just making this up because I heard it millions of time . Is it common ? :)
Isn’t it a part of New York Airport Authority? It is classified as a New York airport. When you go on airlines and type in New york airports as a destination it shows (LGA,EWR,JFK)
I’m pretty sure Port Authority of NY owns it even though it tecnically is in New Jersey. Port Authority of New Jersey might own it though.
same reason on why people think RKSI is in seoul
Oh I see that’s really weird.
The port authority of New York and New Jersey own it. But I second u I hate when people do that
Newark, New Jersey is considered part of the New York Metropolitan area. Newark Airport is also a short distance from New York City itself.
People land in Northern Kentucky when they fly into Cincinnati Int’l as well.
Tip: Never go to Newark. Northeast NJ is New York’s dump site.
Yep. Very shady as well.
A lot of airports for city’s aren’t actually in the city. One good example is Cincinati. It’s also in another state.
The port authority of NY and NJ are the same exact authority.
This is because if an airport was right between a wall of skyscrapers, it would mean a 9 or 10 glidescope, which is probably illegal.
Which is why the airport is often far away from downtown.
I mix them up occasionally, but we all make mistakes
Exactly my point.
The same reason why people think Narita is in Tokyo.
As @sk28 stated above, they are part of the same port authority since it is the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey (PANYNJ) and they handle all of the NYC airports. The correct way to say it, or as I have seen it on signs at airports, is “New York-Newark” just like saying “Chicago-O’Hare” or “London-Heathrow” as the airport serves New York City, but is located in Newark, NJ so it has to be distinguished. So yes, you’re correct to say that it is not Newark, New York. It is however, New York-Newark.
Oh lol. Must have misread that!
It may not be located in New York, but it’s in the same area.
