Newark airport limo service is a big part of what we do here at American City Express Limo.
Whether the airport is EWR, JFK, LaGuardia, or some other airport in the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia area, as a Newark airport limo service, we are quite familiar with the airports.
Getting to know a little history about the airports makes it interesting. Since we are located in New Jersey, we thought we’d focus on the history of Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), one of the busiest airports around, and one we are proud to provide Newark airport limo service to.
History of Newark Liberty International Airport
The City of Newark began dredging 68 acres of marshland to create the first major airport in the northeastern United States. To prepare for its October 1, 1928 opening, it was the first airport in the United States to pave a runway.
First paved runway in the United States.
First opened to deliver the mail, Newark Airport quickly became the world’s busiest commercial airport. In the mid-1930s, crowds gathered to watch the arrival of famous aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart, who opened the Administration Building.
Newark Airport continued its status as “world’s busiest airport” until 1939 when LaGuardia Airport opened. Having two airports in the northeastern United States, cut the air traffic in half, allowing Chicago’s Midway International Airport to take the title of “world’s busiest airport.”
During World War II, Newark Airport was operated by the Army Air Corps.
