After the original opening day in December had to be postponed, Newark Liberty Airport’s new $2.7 billion terminal A opened to travelers Thursday, replacing a cramped 50-year-old building to become the airport’s crown jewel.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey representatives joined Elizabeth city officials, which is the physical home to the new terminal and part of Terminal B, in a traditional ceremony where an arriving United Airlines flight from West Palm Beach passed under an arch of water sprayed from two airport fire fighting water cannons as it approached one of the 21 gates constructed in Terminal A’s first phase.
