Delays Decline in '09

A recent Wall Street Journal article, "An Airline Report Card: Fewer Delays, Hassles Last Year, but Bumpy Times May Be Ahead", confirms Regional Plan Association's findings that flight delays declined in 2009 largely due to the recession, but will probably return worse than ever once the economy recovers. The article notes that Newark Airport beat LaGuardia Airport in 2009 for the spot as the "worst" airport in terms of delays.

RPA is working closely with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to develop a series of recommendations for ameliorating these delays in the New York region's airports. Join the Better Airports Alliance today to make sure your airports improve!
