United to Renovate Terminal C at Newark Hub
United Airlines announced plans for a $120 million upgrade to its terminal at Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday. Terminal C is one of the busiest air passenger terminals in the nation, handling roughly 20 million passengers per year.
When complete, the refurbished terminal will have 55 new restaurants, numerous new retail shops, 6,000 iPads for use by passengers, and 10,000 electrical outlets for charging personal electronic devices.
OTG, which is managing the project in partnership with United, said that the new dining establishments will include ones from well-known restaurateurs Mario Carbone, Alain Ducasse, and Marc Forgionne. The interior of the terminal will be designed by architect David Rockwell.
The iPad tablets will be tethered to approximately three-quarters of the seating in the terminal and will provide airport and flight information. Passengers will also be able to use them to order food for delivery to their seats.
OTG recently completed similar projects at LaGuardia Airport’s Terminals C and D for Delta and John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 5 for JetBlue.
