Newark Liberty International Airport is about 24 kilometers south west of Newark. The Newark Airport was the first premiere airport of the nation. The airports in the greater New York metropolitan area create the largest airport system of the nation. The airport has an IATA code of EWR.
In terms of passenger traffic, the airport is the second largest in the world. However, in regards to total flight operations, it is the largest in the world. Newark is the third largest centre for United Airlines, and FedEx Express is Newark's second largest occupant.
The airport terminals are connected with Newark Liberty International Airport Station, via a free monorail system known as the AirTrain. New Jersey Transport buses move between Irvington, Downtown Newark, and Newark Penn Station, which are connected to the fast conveyance systems and rail lines. Private limousines, car services, and taxis services are available to and from the airport also. Taxis charge a flat rate based on the distance of the destination.
Planes fly to Vancouver, India, Vienna, London, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, and Paris. The only existing hotel within the airport premises is a branch hotel of the Marriott Groups of Hotels. Monorail stations are located far from the hotel and no official route for walking is provided to the terminals. So shuttle vans operate between the hotel and the terminals.
There are three passenger terminals at the Newark Liberty International Airport. For United Airlines the Newark Liberty International Airport is one of their major hubs. The airport was rechristened as Newark Liberty International Airport in 2002, from its earlier name of Newark International Airport after the catastrophic hijacking episode of United Airlines Flight number 93 on the 11th September, 2001 which was used in the World Trade Center attacks on its way from Newark to San Francisco.
