Newark Airport’s new Terminal A opened to passengers on Thursday, but with some hiccups.
With the opening Thursday came a series of problems, including a power outage and issues with TSA security lines.
In an interview with CBS channel 2 in New York, traveler Abby Hatch said the TSA check-in was closed twice, intercom announcements were inaudible and her flight changed gates five times.
“Total, total chaos,” Hatch said.
CBS 2 in New York reported that problems with check-in and security checkpoints have been resolved.
In the new $2.7 billion Terminal A, 21 gates are open. Another 12 gates are expected to open later this year. The facility also has modernized check-in, security and baggage-claim areas.
The terminal had been slated to open on Dec. 8, but its debut was delayed for more than a month because fire alarm and security systems had not passed final tests.
