A coalition of business, civic, labor and environmental organizations announced the formal launch of a campaign to restore, maintain and expand the New York Metro region's airports on Tuesday.  The "Better Airports Alliance" aims to educate residents on the problem of airport delays, provide fresh solutions to relieve congestion and build a consensus for major improvements.

Regional Plan Association today released the results of a public opinion poll on airports in the New York - New Jersey - Connecticut metropolitan area.  The poll shows that, except for the cost of air travel, the public believes flight delays are the biggest problem plaguing travel, and that many solutions are heavily supported including better rail alternatives, use of Stewart Airport in Orange County for more flights, investment in modern air traffic control systems known as NEXTGEN and redesign of air traffic flight patterns.
