The EWR Airport serves the New York metropolitan area alongside two other major airports. Together, they form a large coalition that is perhaps the greatest network of airports in the entire country.

The airport itself is also rather large, comprising of three large main terminals (labeled A, B, and C respectively), with each terminal being further subdivided into three subunits. In total, the airport houses over 120 gates.

On average, these gates and terminals are visited by 30-46 million visitors each year, with the year of 2020 being the sole exception thanks to the flight ban that was imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
