United Airlines Announces $150 Million Investment for Newark Liberty Airport Hub
United Airlines announced plans to invest $150 million in what it termed ongoing improvements at its hub at Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport. The move is in concert with a 20-year extension of its lease at the airport with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
The immediate improvements include updates to Terminal C’s concourse areas and include a $100 million inline baggage screening system that moves luggage from the check-in counter to the aircraft. The airline also announced it was building a widebody maintenance hangar at the airport as well as building a new catering facility.
United flies over 400 flights daily to more than 150 destinations on four continents from Newark. In addition to domestic flights, this includes other countries in North America and cities in South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
United Airlines and its United Express carriers are the exclusive tenants of Terminal C. Two predecessors of United Airlines, namely Continental and People Express, had hubs at Newark as well.
