Munich Airport International and its subsidiary, Munich Airport NJ, today announced Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) was awarded a 5-Star Airport Terminal Rating from Skytrax, the air travel industry rating organization.

The 5-Star Airport Terminal rating recognizes airport terminals that are providing exceptional standards of facilities and staff service to customers across all front-line areas of the airport environment.

To achieve this rating, the staff service and product standards must be meeting or setting global best practice for the items under evaluation.

Jost Lammers, CEO of Munich Airport said, “I am very proud of this prestigious award, which confirms the remarkable performance of our U.S. subsidiary in close cooperation with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ).

“This makes the Munich Airport Group the first airport operator to run two 5-Star terminal buildings on two continents.”

Opened in January of 2023, the $2.7 billion USD, one million square foot Terminal A at EWR provides 15 million annual customers with a world-class experience.

With its spacious interiors, floor-to-ceiling windows, inspiring local public art features, locally inspired restaurants, and small businesses from the surrounding area, the terminal offers a unique ambience across landside and airside areas.

Dr. Lutz Weisser, Managing Director of Munich Airport International GmbH said: “Being awarded Skytrax 5-Stars is the biggest honor for any airport or terminal.

“We have seen Terminal A through its early construction phase and opening and celebrated the one-year anniversary of operations just recently.

“This award is the reward for the outstanding work of our U.S. team and all our partners: The PANYNJ, the airlines, our concessionaires and everybody else who contributed to this great achievement. It is such a pleasure to see Terminal A blossom to its full extent.”

Michael Kunz, CEO of Munich Airport NJ LLC, the operator of Newark Terminal A explained: “We are honored to be recognized as a 5-Star Airport Terminal.

“This 5-Star rating places Newark Terminal A in a very exclusive club – one of only three 5-Star Airport facilities in North America.
