Under the agreement, Alstom will be responsible for 24-hour train operations and maintenance of the AirTrain Newark fleet, station doors, guideways, power distribution systems, car wash, signalling system and facilities.

Michael Keroullé, President of Alstom Americas said:

“We are proud of our continued partnerships with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and with Newark Liberty International Airport. Our industry-leading Innovia airport system has been moving travellers and employees between terminals at Newark Airport safely and reliably since 1996.

“Building upon the knowledge gathered over more than 25 years and our worldwide leadership of operation and maintenance of automated transit systems, our service delivery team will continue to focus on maintaining the AirTrain Newark’s high-performance levels and supporting the best possible passenger mobility experience at the airport.”

The AirTrain fleet consists of 15 6-car Innovia monorail trains which travel along 3 miles of elevated guideway and serve six stations, including EWR’s new Terminal A.

To accommodate high passenger volumes, the fully automated AirTrain operates 24/7, 365 days a year.

In 2022, nearly 10 million passengers rode the service, with an average daily ridership of approximately 26,000.
