The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey today announced that its airports saw more passengers during August 2023 than during any previous month in history.
A record high number of air travellers also passed through the airports during the Labor Day holiday travel period.
In facts and figures, a record-breaking 13.3 million passengers passed through Newark Liberty International, John F Kennedy International, LaGuardia, and New York Stewart International airports in August 2023.
That record high level surpassed August 2019 as the busiest month ever at the region’s airports. So far, this year remains on track to be the busiest year on record for the airports.
