Newark Airport will no longer be a New York area airport due to upcoming city code change

Starting October 3, Newark Liberty International Airport will no longer be considered a New York area airport due to an upcoming change in its city code.

The reasoning is due to a new standard for “multi-airport cities”. As a result, EWR will remain, but it will lose its New York City code component.

This change in city status is in accordance with the International Air Transport Association.

According to a note from Luftansa, this could affect costs as Newark will operate under a new pricing structure.

It is not yet known whether or not it will be cheaper than JFK or LGA.

However, airlines might charge a penalty fee for changing flight from EWR to JFK or LGA, as it no longer falls under that city code.
