Terminal B Modernization at Newark International Airport began in the early part of 2000 with a mandate by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to alleviate facility congestion and enhance passenger experience at one of the country’s largest and busiest airports. The program included an enhanced and consolidated international departures hall, mid-level domestic departures hall, international arrivals meeter/greeter hall and new lower level domestic arrivals baggage claim hall. The original 2000 modernization program did not take into account the tragic events of 9/11/2001 which dramatically changed the program and the overall scope of the renovation. After 9/11 the program dramatically expanded adding new passenger security check-points, inter-line baggage check facilities and other security upgrades based on new standards developed by the Authority, TSA and Homeland Security bringing the Modernization program to over 360 thousand square feet of new and renovated space.
