Peters’s LGA-Newark Plan Includes Caps, Slot Auctions
To the relief of airlines, Transportation Secretary Mary Peters backed away from congestion pricing at New York Kennedy and Newark airports, but in its place she turned to caps on flight operations and eventual auctions of newly created slots. Beginning in the spring, peak-hour operations at JFK will be capped at 82-83 per hour, but Peters stresses that this won’t reduce capacity because airlines are voluntarily moving flights to other parts of the day. These caps will be extended to Newark to prevent airlines from shifting flights there from JFK.
