As we continue to provide a Newark airport limo service and limo services to the other New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia airports, ports and cities, we thought we would share a little more of Newark’s Liberty International Airport history to bring you up to date. After all, as a Newark airport limo service, we like to stay informed.
Our last airport history article left off with World War II when Newark Airport was operated by the Army Air Corps. We have been around quite a while as a Newark airport limo service, but not quite that long. Anyway, after the Port Authority took over the airport in 1948, the agency immediately began making major improvements. It added an instrument runway, a terminal building, a control tower and an air cargo center.
The Central Terminal Area, Port Authority Administration Building, the Central Heating and Refrigeration Plant, and taxiways and roadways all opened in the early 1970s. And in 1989, a two-building maintenance complex opened as well.
In the 1990s, even more improvements were added. In 1996, the International Arrivals Facility opened in Terminal B and the Monorail (now AirTrain Newark) was launched.
In 2003, a 325-foot control tower was commissioned, the fourth in the airport’s history.
The improvements continue today, with Newark Liberty on the forefront of the campaign for NextGen technology and so much more.
Hope you enjoyed this little bit of history with us here at American City Express Limo. Next time you fly into Newark Liberty Airport, know you are in knowledgeable hands with our Newark airport limo services.
