PACO Group (PACO) is part of the JGP Tri-Venture (Jacobs, GPI, PACO) for the replacement of the AirTrain at Newark Liberty International Airport.

PACO serves as the linchpin that keeps construction projects on track and ensures successful outcomes. Here we showcase projects that are either ongoing, or that have been executed efficiently while maintaining the highest standards of quality.

AirTrain EWR is a critical component of the operation of Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). The system carries on average 33,000 passengers per day or approximately 12 million passengers per year. It provides access to the Northeast Corridor Rail Link Station and provides customers and employees with the ability to transfer between terminals, parking lots and rental car facilities.

AirTrain is a critical part of Newark Liberty’s operations, and the existing system is nearing the end of its useful life and It is imperative to build a new 21st century AirTrain to serve the new world-class terminals that we are building at Newark Liberty. The project will replace the existing, outdated and unreliable AirTrain Newark system at Newark Liberty International Airport with a new, 2.5-mile automated train system. The process will include the design and construction of the new AirTrain’s APM system technology, in addition to the operations and maintenance components needed for a new world-class AirTrain.

The first phase of the procurement process also includes furnishing, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of the system technology. The replacement with a new AirTrain system will meet increasing passenger demands and enable world-class operations that provide for a 21st century customer experience for airport visitors and employees.
