Looks like ACY wants the Government to help it become the Reliever Airport for ("congested") EWR and PHL.
|Quoting DeltAirlines (Reply 2):|
I don't see it relieving EWR at all. It's about a two hour drive for me from New Providence to Atlantic City,
|Quoting DOT APPLICATION (Thread starter):|
More importantly, population growth along the north-south axis of the Garden State
Parkway corridor has combined with acute traffic congestion in Northern New Jersey to
make ACY the airport of choice for consumers as far north as Essex county
|Quoting STT757 (Reply 4):|
Union, Bergen, Essex, Passaic county residents are not going to consider ACY, those folks especially Bergen county residents would consider Stewart as an alternative. That however is only a part of EWR's catchment area, for folks in Middlesex, Mercer, Ocean, and where I am in Monmouth County ACY is an alternative.
