Newark Liberty International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, and LaGuardia Airport served a record number of passengers this summer, with 43.9 million people moving through the facilities between the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, according to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.
JFK served a 20.4 million passengers, Newark handled 14 million and LaGuardia served a 9.4 million passengers during the 14-week period – all were records.
“The airport customer experience initiatives underscore our commitment to enhancing the travel experience for all Port Authority customers, whether it’s better amenities and digital innovation at our airports, or more customer-friendly services at our bridges, tunnels and PATH,” Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole said in a statement. “Our facilities are focused on achieving these improvements while handling record passenger levels and advancing major redevelopment projects at our airports. These combined ambitions are a testament to the hard-working employees of the Port Authority and our private-sector partners.”
