Mission Statement

Airport congestion affects our economy and our lives. But it doesn't have to be that way. Solutions exist for smoother, less maddening air travel. The Better Airports Alliance, a coalition of business, Civic, labor and environmental organizations, was established to educate residents in the New York Metropolitan Region on the problem of airport delays, provide fresh solutions to relieve congestion and build consensus for major improvements. Through research, public outreach and advocacy, our goals are to increase public understanding of the urgent issues facing the New York region's airports, reduce the negative impacts airport congestion currently has on the economy and plan for future growth.
