Holiday travelers at Newark’s Liberty International Airport Terminal A can expect a streamlined security checkpoint experience this holiday season. Terminal A is home to airlines such as JetBlue, United, and American Airlines. The Port Authority is testing a new program named “Newark VirtuaLine” at several checkpoints in Terminal A.
Every day from 4 A.M. to 8 P.M. travelers at checkpoints A2 (Gates 20 to 28) and A3 (Gates 30 to 39) can now reserve a 30-minute time slot at the security checkpoint. 72 hours before your flight you can now register online providing your airline and flight information to get an available time. A complete FAQ is available here.
Users will get a QR code that they can display when they arrive. This should ease some of the anxiety of not knowing how long the security queue may be.
