The Air Transport Association (ATA), a trade association for United States airlines, has called on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to temporarily create additional airspace capacity.
The capacity would reportedly be added by imposing proportional level ground delay programmes at Teterboro Airport and other nearby airports when the FAA imposes ground delay programmes at Newark Liberty International Airport, LaGuardia International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport.
According to ATA president and CEO James C. May, the New York City metropolitan-area airspace is saturated and near gridlock due to air traffic control restraints and thunderstorms. May also said that commercial airlines are being forced to cancel hundreds of flights.
