NJ airport in line for upgrades for ’14 Super Bowl

New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport is in line for

upgrades that will help accommodate visitors to the 2014 Super


The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says private jet

operator Signature Flight Support will invest $11 million in a new

passenger terminal and ramp renovations.

The improvements are part of a lease extension agreement

approved by the Port Authority on Tuesday. They’re to be done in

time for the 2014 Super Bowl at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford,

just west of New York City.

The Port Authority also approved a new first-class lounge for

Virgin Atlantic Airlines. It will be part of an ongoing $347

million terminal overhaul.

Virgin Atlantic agreed to pay for $3.5 million worth of

improvements before the Super Bowl.
