EWR Terminal One now New Terminal A

About – New Terminal A Redevelopment – Newark Liberty International Airport (ewrredevelopment.com)

Still on target for a 2022 opening
They say they are going to use some form of flexible gate assignments where multiple airlines may use the same gate

Looking forward to the new terminal. Have been watching the speedy progress over the past year or so especially when flying B6.

That said, I hope it doesn't pull a LGA. As impressive as the new LGA terminal is, the new terminal has opened in phases, which makes sense, but holy cow, there are a lot of walking. I don't mind walking, and I am a fast walker, but I am so used to getting to the airport last minute...much easier with the compactness of EWR Terminal C, or existing Terminal A or B.

Hopefully there will be easy & convenient airside connection between the new and existing terminals.

It will be a bus. An AirTrain replacement is in the works but it will be landside like the current system. No plans for an airside automated people mover.

I am little confused by the title; have they renamed it again from "Terminal 1" back to "New Terminal A"?

(We had an older thread about this new EWR terminal somewhere, but I can't find it now....)

Yes. It will now be New Terminal A.
Once old terminal A is demolished I expect they will ease it to simply Terminal A.

Making a tight connection from old A to C was not good. The time I ran from A to C on bus ran to my gate like C122 for SJU and door closed 8 minutes before departure.
I asked the agent don’t you look for connections they don’t do that anymore. Had to get to JFK at my own expense and took DL to SJU.
Was in DFW a few weeks ago saw them close the door 10 minutes before departure people who were trying to get on were out of luck.

An airside walkway is as likely as stumbling upon a unicorn playing cards with Sasquatch

Yep, I don't think such a thing is even under remote consideration. A C-A airside walkway would probably be over a mile long. The current central terminal layout is much more conducive to a walkway, and even that was never developed.

I have done that walk on the land side and I have taken the bus. Both worked and both were less than ideal.

JetBlue is now using 4 PANYNJ common-use gates previously allocated to United on A-2, and perhaps the volume of passengers in the satellite (plus reduced # departures until November at least) doesn't justify it. By the time EWR is back at full schedule, the opening of the new Terminal A (with a United Club) will be imminent.
I haven't heard much about the new terminal, and very little found in searching. Has it been announced that there will be a United Club there? How many gates in the new terminal is United going to have?

Yes, there will be a UC there but details on it are limited. No doubt it will be a large lounge. UA will have about a dozen mainline gates at the beginning.

Hey, about 1/3 of my chauffeured transfers by UA GS reps have been from A to C -- it's far from a miserable experience when it happens... especially when one of those times was with a coworker who rarely travels [Is that dead due to COVID or have I just been an unlucky 1K this year?]

The rest of the time the transfer has been no more miserable than the terminal. I can live with the transfer as long as the bus station atmosphere of A is no more. I just hope the replacement looks/works nothing like the hell that is the new UAX gates at IAH. I like a lot of things about Europe but the whole "We don't let you go anywhere near your gate until moments before boarding" concept is supremely irritating.
