United Polaris, United Airlines’ international premium cabin travel experience, will be available for travelers at the new United Polaris lounge at Newark Liberty International Airport.
The lounge is spread over 27,000 square feet. When visitors enter, they will be greeted with a vibrant lighting fixture created by Brooklyn-based art and design laboratory Richard Clarkson Studio that is meant to mimic the constellations of the 12 zodiac signs. Another highlight is the bar, both in terms of size and the array of cocktails offered. The lounge has 455 seats, 15 different types of seating, four private phone rooms, 10 private daybeds, and 10 luxurious shower suites. There is also a private dining area.
“More United customers begin their journey in the New York/New Jersey region than in any other of our hub cities,” said Jill Kaplan, President, New York/New Jersey for United Airlines. “From here, our route network reaches across the globe, and we are thrilled to now offer our customers traveling in United Polaris business class a best-in-class lounge experience.”
The opening of the United Polaris lounge at New York/Newark follows the debut of a similar lounge, in April, at San Francisco International Airport in April. The United Polaris lounge at George Bush Intercontinental in Houston will open this summer, followed by the lounge at Los Angeles International Airport this fall.
