Cheap flights to Newark International (EWR)

See all departure points

Most travellers think of Newark as a starting or stopping point on the way to somewhere else, giving little thought to the city itself. Few realise that Newark is the largest city in New Jersey and the third-oldest major city in the US. Visitors coming off their Newark flights will discover a city with a wealth of historic sites and diverse cultural attractions.

Newark's Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart is the fifth-largest cathedral in the United States with towers reputed to be taller than those at Westminster and Notre Dame. The cornerstone was laid in 1899, and construction was completed in 1954, which is a short time for a Gothic cathedral of this size. The Cathedral is located in Branch Brook Park, one of Frederick Law Olmsted’s parks. The park is more than four miles long and has more than 2000 cherry trees — a greater variety and number of cherry trees than the Washington, DC display. Branch Brook Park’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival is held in April. So the next time you stop over on a long layover off a flight to Newark, make sure take in some of the sights.

Airport Overview

Situated within the city limits of both Newark and Elizabeth in New Jersey, USA, Newark Liberty International is approximately 24km (15 miles) south-west of Midtown Manhattan in New York City. Having handled just over 33 million passengers in 2010, it is the United States’ tenth-busiest aerial hub.

Newark Liberty International comprises three passenger terminals: Terminal C consists of two ticketing levels, while Terminals A and B have four levels. Ticket counters are on the top floor, gates and shops are on the third floor, an international arrivals lounge (Terminal B) and baggage carousels are on the second floor, and short term parking areas make up the ground floor. Each terminal features three concourses.

With clean amenities and a decent array of dining and shopping venues, quick check-in and security facilities and numerous transport options to and from the airport, Newark Liberty International is, in spite of its relatively small size, an efficient airport worthy of being the country’s fifth-busiest international air gateway.
