This past Monday morning, United Airlines officially opened its newest Polaris lounge at Newark Liberty International Airport. It is one of several that are opening across United’s hubs. The new facilities complement the airline’s new Polaris business class product that debuted two years ago.

Reader Gary Cirlin visited the new space prior to his flight on Monday morning and sent us these photos.
