•  This summer, Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines, and JetBlue Airways have all confirmed they will be cutting back departures from the New York City area, Airline Weekly reports. The carriers will reduce their volume at John F. Kennedy Airport, LaGuardia Airport, and Newark Liberty Airport in nearby New Jersey to help ease delays and other issues during the upcoming busy travel season. The changes could potentially affect up to 10 percent of each airline’s departures from each of the transportation hubs.
  • The move comes after a meeting held with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on March 29 to discuss ongoing issues related to a shortage of air traffic controllers. Last month, the agency said that it expected only to have 54 percent of the necessary staff working in the New York City area and anticipated delays on about 45 percent of all flights from the region if traffic was not decreased, Bloomberg reported.
