    Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Initially named Newark Metropolitan Airport and later Newark International Airport, is the principal airport serving the state of New Jersey. The airport sits on the boundary between the cities of Newark and Elizabeth, the former of which is the most populous city in the state. EWR is owned jointly by the cities of Elizabeth and Newark and leased to and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

    The airport covers 2,027 acres (820 ha) and has three runways and one helipad:

    • Runway 11/29 is one of the three runways built during World War II. Runways 1/19 and 6/24 were closed and in 1952 and a new Runway 4/22 (now 4R/22L) was opened at a length of 7,000 feet. After 1970 this runway was extended to 9,800 feet.

    • Runway 4L/22R opened in 1970 at a length of 8,200 ft (2,500 m) and was extended to its current length by 2000. Runway 4L/22R is primarily used for takeoffs while 4R/22L is primarily used for landings and 11/29 is used by smaller aircraft or when there are strong crosswinds on the two main runways. Newark's parallel runways (4L and 4R) are 950 feet (290 m) apart, the fourth smallest separation of major airports in the U.S., after San Francisco International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

    • All approaches except Runway 29 have Instrument Landing Systems and Runway 4R is certified for Category III approaches. Runway 22L had been upgraded to CAT III approach capability.  - List of US Airlines
