First Lounge Now Open At Newark Airport’s New Terminal A; Includes Designated Room For Davening

United Airlines has opened a United Club lounge in the new Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport, marking the first of four airport lounges to open in the $2.7 billion new Terminal A at Newark Liberty Airport, which opened earlier this year.

The United Club, a 15,000-square-foot space located near gate A27, features a modern, locally inspired design and upgraded amenities, as well as ample space with more than 300 seats, plenty of recliners, couches and chairs across spaces for lounging, working, dining and socializing, United said.

An additional, important, feature of the new lounge is a designated room for passengers to pray or for nursing mothers looking for privacy.

Three more lounges are expected to open up soon as well, including the American Airlines Admirals Club and the Delta Airlines Sky Club later this year, and the American Express Centurion Lounge which is expected to open sometime in 2025.

  1. “Davening” is misleading. I’m sure that if a quorum of Muslims or Buddhists would be looking for a place to offer up their tiflos, they would be welcome as well.

  2. United Airlines is actually pretty good about accommodating Jewish prayers and Kosher meal requirements unlike some of the other un-American carriers who do not have any sensitivity nor any sensibility, at United they know how to respect passengers’ values and appreciate their customers’ choice.

  3. I was just at the United lounge this past week. It really is impressive. However, for the kosher consumer there was literally nothing to eat. Not even a bag of chips.
