Will it soon be possible to fly from Los Angeles and San Francisco to New York LaGuardia?
According to a Wall Street Journal story published today, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the airport, is considering relaxing rules that ban most flights to cities farther than 1,500 miles away.
The rules have been in effect since 1984. There are only two exceptions. One permits flights to Denver. Another allows flights to all destinations on Saturdays.
From the WSJ story written by Andrew Tangel and Jack Nicas:
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls New York City’s three major airports, said it is studying the so-called perimeter rule “to determine whether it remains in the best interest of the region’s air travelers.” The authority said any change would occur only after thorough analysis and consultation “with all interested parties in a public and transparent manner.”
What do you think of this development?
