How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Newark
Travelers going to the New York area have several airports to choose from. Newark Liberty International Airport (airport code EWR) is technically in New Jersey, but do not let that fool you.

Though Newark is in a neighboring state, it is a popular choice for flying in and out of the New York City area, as it lies only 15 miles from the city. Newark, in fact, ranks fifth as an international gateway to the United States (New York’s JFK Airport is first).
