The region’s major commercial airports – John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia (LGA) in Queens, and Newark Liberty International (EWR) in New Jersey – handled record-setting passenger levels this summer, said the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Some 43.9 million passengers were served between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.
During the summer timeframe, JFK handled a record 20.4 million passengers and EWR handled a record 14 million passengers. LGA served a record 9.4 million passengers during the 14-week period, which included eight of the 12 busiest days in the airport’s 80-year history.
In addition to handling the record number of passengers who traveled through the agency’s airports this summer, the Port Authority has pursued sweeping initiatives focused on improving customer experience. Among other steps taken was a concession improvement program that added new, local, high-quality dining options at all three airports.
