United Airlines inaugurated a brand-new, 30,000 square foot United Club in May of last year close to gate C123 at Newark Liberty International Airport. A brand-new, 15,000-square-foot lounge, located across gate A27 in the airport’s relatively new Terminal A, was just launched by the airline as part of ongoing renovations and the introduction of new lounge locations.
A Contemporary Newark Loft
Prior to its official opening late last month, the new United Club branch had been in the works for some years. It is the first lounge to operate in Terminal A of Newark Airport. A Delta Air Lines Sky Club, an American Express Centurion Lounge, and an American Airlines Admirals Club are anticipated to eventually be located in the terminal.
Additionally, the new United Club location is a little more distinctive than United Airlines’ other lounges across the world and at Newark Airport thanks to its open-air design and New York/New Jersey-inspired decor. The club incorporates locally sourced furnishings and décor that match the targeted neighbourhood, bridging an industrial loft style and modern appearance.
A main mural by Newark-based artist Antoinette Ellis-Williams, who is known for combining layering through mixed media and abstract collages, is among the hand-crafted artwork that is also on exhibit in the space. The club also contains other local artwork, such as paintings, photos, and prints created by a variety of New York and Bronx-based artists.
Updated Passenger Experience
The new United Club location features more than 300 seats, including plenty of recliners, couches, and chairs, in addition to a slightly different appearance. The lounge is the ideal place to unwind, work, eat, and socialise because it has individual workstations available throughout the rooms. The complete buffet is available to passengers for all-day meals and complementary drinks.
Additionally, there is the premium bar, where guests can savour specially priced prepared drinks as well as regional specialties like saltwater taffy and the ham, egg, and cheese state sandwich of New Jersey. The club offers the customary self-scan entry gates and high-speed WiFi connectivity as well as a wellness area for travellers who are nursing or who want to meditate or pray.
The new outpost has significant drawbacks, while appearing to be cosy, stylish, and contemporary. The new United Club does not have shower facilities, making it unsuitable for travellers who utilise lounge showers to freshen up before or after a trip. In addition, passengers may have trouble locating private locations for their essential phone conversations due to the layout’s more open-air design.
The fact that the new location only has two staff-staffed reception help desks and places a strong emphasis on self-service kiosks may frustrate customers who prefer human interaction when seeking assistance. For those who value speedy services and robotic encounters, though, this might be perfect.
To Sum Up
Despite these shortcomings, the new United Club in Terminal A of Newark Airport is a fairly lovely and hassle-free lounge that satisfies a passenger’s fundamental demands. The club is accessible to qualifying Air Canada passengers and is available everyday from 5:00 until 21:15.
Customer support personnel who can help with travel requirements are part of the improved access. Passengers had better keep an eye out for bright new places since United Airlines will also be establishing two more United Club locations at Denver International Airport later this summer.
