Munich Airport International (MAI) has secured a contract from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) to operate and manage the USD 2.7 billion Terminal One at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
MAI will operate as EWR Terminal One and oversee operations, maintenance and concession functions once the terminal is completed. Terminal One is replacing the outmoded Terminal A and is scheduled to be fully operational by 2022. The new operating company EWR Terminal One also will be making short-term customer enhancements in Terminal A until that terminal is closed.
“We wanted to bring a world leader in customer service and concession management to Newark Liberty, and MAI fits the bill,” said Kevin O’Toole, chairman of Port Authority. “Brand new Terminal One will improve the travel experience for New Jersey travellers while creating new jobs and business opportunities in the region.”
“We look forward to bringing world-class operations, services and amenities to the new Terminal One,” said Dr. Ralf Gaffal, managing director of Munich Airport International.
Terminal One will feature cutting-edge digital technology, superior dining and retail options in about one million square feet of space, about 20 percent larger than Terminal A. It will accommodate an estimated 13.6 million passengers annually on three levels. The new terminal will have 33 common-use gates
