Terminal B reopens after Ida floods



Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport reopened after closing its lower level Wednesday night and much of Thursday after flooding from last night’s storm.

Elevators and escalators are still out of service, but the lower roads and the lobby are open.

Terminals A and C have not closed.

The Airtrain serving the airport is operating, but it is not serving Terminal C while repairs are being made to the equipment damaged by the floods. Buses run in its place.

Flight activity has resumed, but there have been 406 canceled flights and 92 delayed flights at the airport due to last night’s storm that left at least 23 people dead in New Jersey and caused massive flooding. Service on Amtrak and NJ Transit trains, with the exception of the Atlantic City line, was also suspended on Thursday.
