EWR Drops To #2 As JFK Rides On B6's Wave

Thu Mar 13, 2003 5:37 am

After 5 years JFK has regained the title as NY's busiest airport, beating out EWR thanks in large part to B6.

http://nj.com/news/ledger/jersey/index.ssf?/base/news-3/104745317253240.xml

EWR total passengers 29.2

JFK total passengers 29.9

LGA total passengers 22 Million

EWR's total is the lowest it's been since '96, and it's down from a peak of 34.2 Million just two years earlier!..

Overall EWR, JFK and LGA are down to 81.3 from 92.4 Million just 2 years earlier.

Newark Officials hope to regain the bragging rights title, although Port Authority Officials downplay it's importance (of course Big grin)

I didn't forget , the PA did I copied that list from their press release.

In fact Dusseldorf is not the only route left of I can think of a few others like Caracas.

Cozumel, Los Cabos, Acapulco are seasonal so many they left them off on purpose. And Tegucigalapa, Quito, Guayaquil, are all served from EWR, albeit with a stop in Panama, Guatemala City and Bogota.

And starting this year CO launches new nonstop service to Port Of Spain, and LH/Privatair launch EWR-MUC.

And what about SQ's EWR-AMS-SIN services, Malaysian's EWR-DXB-KUL services, and Air India as well?

Jetblue is up to 75 flights a day out of JFK.

So based on mainline only, but do include DLX, are they the largest at JFK?

We'll be back, but it is reassuring to be reminded that no other hub in the New York area offers anywhere near the same scope as Continental's operation at Newark. B6 is far from New York's hometown airline.
