Airports in New Jersey

Atlantic City International

Atlantic City International (ACY) is the gateway to Atlantic City, the New Jersey destination famous for flashy casinos, fine shopping and decadent dining. Flights to Atlantic City Airport connect to the Atlantic City and Southern New Jersey shore region and a host of local and international destinations. More than 50 airlines currently fly to and from Atlantic City International, and that number is set to increase.

The airport, which benefitted from a $40 million terminal and taxiway expansion project in 2005, prides itself on its efficiency. According to the airport’s website, Atlantic City International offers the shortest wait time of any airport in the region. In fact, the average processing time to departing gate is a mere 11 minutes – for anyone who’s stood in endless lines waiting to go through security, this will come as good news.

The airport is much smaller than New York or Philadelphia (visitors joke that you can see from one end to the other) so if you’re looking forward to perusing the shops and restaurants for hours you will be disappointed, but staff are attentive, efficient and professional, and make the security process a breeze. Atlantic City International is located in Egg Harbor Township, a 20-minute drive from Atlantic City. The airport is easily accessible from major roadways.

Newark International

Situated within the city limits of both Newark and Elizabeth in New Jersey, USA, Newark Liberty International is approximately 15 miles (24 km) 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.
