Newark Airport will no longer be considered part of NYC
Newark Liberty International Airport will no longer be considered a New York City destination beginning next month — which may lead to passengers having to pay a penalty if they want to transfer to the Big Apple hubs.
Until now, Newark was grouped together with John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia as belonging to the “NYC” cluster of airports. Now the New Jersey airport will solely be referred to by the “EWR” code. Once the change goes into effect, fliers who wish to alter their destination between the New York airports and Newark may have to pay a penalty — which can cost hundreds of dollars depending on the airline.
