Connecting Between Terminals for Lounge Access

Newark Liberty International Airport Shuttle Bus

If you’re flying with a Star Alliance airline, you can ride the United Shuttle bus that operates between the 3 terminals inside the secure area. This allows passengers to use a lounge in a different terminal to their departing flight without the need to reclear security. Buses operate from near gates A28, B67, and C70.

Newark Liberty International Airport AirTrain

If you’re not traveling on a Star Alliance airline and need to travel between terminals, you must ride the AirTrain and reclear security. Keep this in mind and allow plenty of time if you’re changing terminals to access a particular lounge before your flight.

Best Credit Cards to Access Priority Pass Lounges

With Priority Pass Select access, you can take your airport experience to the next level by gaining access to over 1,300 airport lounges worldwide. Why spend your time wandering airport gift shops as you wait for your flight when you could be waiting for your flight in style from the comfort of an airport lounge with free food and drinks?

The very best airport lounge access credit card is the Amex Platinum card. Not only do cardmembers get access to Priority Pass lounges, but you’ll also get access to 5 other airport lounge networks including Centurion Lounges, Delta Sky Clubs (when flying Delta), Plaza Premium Lounges, Airspace lounges, and Escape Lounges. This virtually guarantees that no matter what airport you’re flying out of, there is likely to be a lounge that you can access with your Amex Platinum card.

Another great credit card for Priority Pass lounge access is the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card. This is because the Chase Sapphire Reserve card also gives you access to Priority Pass restaurant locations where you’ll receive a $28 dining credit (or $56 when dining with a guest) so that you can enjoy a free meal before your flight.

Curious what other options you have? Here are some of the credit cards that offer access to Priority Pass lounges:

Final Thoughts

Newark Liberty International Airport has a good selection of lounges where passengers can wait for their flight in more comfortable surroundings. The airside shuttle bus gives Star Alliance passengers the freedom to move between terminals without needing to reclear security. This could benefit those United Club visitors that may want to consider visiting the quieter Terminal A lounge instead of the 2 more crowded lounges in Terminal C.
