Newark Liberty International Airport (IATAEWRICAOKEWRFAA LIDEWR), first named Newark Airport and later Newark International Airport, is an international airport within the city limits of both Newark and ElizabethNew JerseyUnited States (although it is entirely owned by the city of Newark). It is about 15 miles (24 km) southwest of Midtown Manhattan (New York City).

The airport is operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which also manages the two other major airports in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan areaJohn F.

Newark Liberty is the second-largest hub, after George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, for Continental Airlines, which is the airport's largest tenant (operating all of Terminal C and part of Terminal A).

FedEx operates from three buildings on two million square feet within the airport complex.[4]
