Porter Airlines has officially opened a new passenger lounge adjacent to its primary gate in Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport.
The lounge will be available free of charge to every Porter passenger and features comfortable seating, WiFi, cold beverages, specialty coffees and snacks.
“The Newark lounge is the latest element of our desire to emphasise speed, convenience and service for all of our customers,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “This is now a distinguishing feature for everyone who flies with us from the Greater New York and New Jersey areas.”
The opening festivities yesterday (30 August) included participation from the Consulate General of Canada in New York, Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation (OTMPC) and The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. Passengers were treated to tastings of Ontario wine and cheese. OTMPC travel counselors also provided customised advice to people visiting the province.
“Entrepreneurs are the key to creating jobs and growth for the Canadian economy,” said the Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism). “The opening of Porter Airlines' Newark lounge makes a great first impression on travellers coming to Canada and helps strengthen our ties with our American neighbours through improved business and leisure travel.”

London Gatwick Airport has released an animation illustrating what the airport could look like if it was to gain approval for a second runway. A UK government decision on whether Gatwick should be expanded is expected later this year as part of plans to increase airport capacity in south-east England. According to Gatwick, a second runway will deliver the economic boost the UK needs.
