Capacity and Delays at New York Airports: The Role of Monmouth

7 September 2021   Monmouth Jet Center

Anyone who has traveled through New York airports has probably experienced capacity issues and delays. Large commercial airports, especially in New York, are notorious for overbooked flights, delays taking off due to lack of runway space, and other congestion issues that disrupt your travel plans and cause major frustrations. 

Many people have discovered the perks of using smaller airports like Monmouth Executive Airport. Located nearby in New Jersey, Monmouth Airport offers a convenient alternative to crowded, hectic New York airports like JFK and LGA, and it’s a short Uber ride away from New York City and surrounding areas. 

Capacity and delays at JFK and LGA

JFK and LGA are two of the busiest airports in the country and consistently rank among the airports with the highest numbers of delays. With domestic and international flights landing around the clock, chances are if you’ve ever flown to or from JFK or LGA, you’ve encountered delays. Larger passenger flights generally take priority over smaller, private planes or hired aircraft. So if you’re looking for alternatives, why not try a general aviation reliever airport like Monmouth?

Role of Monmouth as general aviation reliever airport

A general aviation reliever airport is designed to relieve congestion from major New York airports, which as already mentioned, are the busiest in the country.
