As part of the legislation that allowed the Port Authority to acquire SWF, the Port Authority also agreed to do the same in New Jersey. They are now looking at acquiring ACY. ACY is 91 miles South of Manhattan, while not an option for NYC bound passengers (although neither is SWF at 60 miles from Manhattan), ACY does offer an alternative to those in the Central and Southern NJ EWR catchment areas (Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex counties).

Sheesh! $3 million down the drain on that "study" by the Port Authority.

What exactly do they think they would be able to do by taking over ACY that ACY can't do on it's own? SWF isn't exactly setting any records these days....

Thanks for posting the link though.

NO! We need all the money we can get to help update LGA and EWR.

Well it was New Jersey's turn at the Port Authority today, the PATH extension to EWR is also getting "moved forward"

http://www.panynj.gov/press-room/press-item.cfm?headLine_id=1641

The PATH extension to EWR is tremendous news, it's cost effective ($600 Million), not too complicated logistically (1.5 mile extension alongside the NEC) and offers huge benefits for both NY and NJ. It will provide a one seat ride from the Santiago Calavatrava hub currently being built at the World Trade Center directly to Newark airport. It will hopefully spur some growth on both ends.

I just saw it. That is very good. Now the Port needs to keep moving with the LGA CTB replacement and EWR Terminal A replacement. Both of these terminals are going to run into trouble has they continue to age.

ACY is also a decent alternative to PHL bound passengers. It would be nice if ACY could attract some more airlines.

Or build a post security JFK train to post security LGA...    That would make JFK international connections to LGA domestic flights so easy. (Sadly that won't ever happen)

Agreed, that would make it easier. When I flew frm NAS to LGA in August their was a lady next to me connecting on AF to CDG and because we were 1.5 hours late, she had a very tight connection (about two hours to get off the plane, get her bags, get to JFK, clear security and immigration again, and get to her gate).

Dear god no. The Port is a disaster, and the fewer airports they manage, the better.

   My thoughts exactly when I read the title. I was doing a consulting project with them a few years ago and we were offering them free money for 1 piece of paper that would have had no material effect on their ops (except make it grow) and they said no.
