AAI Highlights Competition Issues in Comments to FAA on Slot Management Proposals for NYC Airports

The AAI filed comments today in regard to slot management and transparency for LaGuardia Airport (LGA), John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and Newark Liberty International Airport in response to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking by the   U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration. The AAI comments highlight the NPRM proposals that are likely to have beneficial effects on entry, competition, and efficiency while providing important context regarding competition in the U.S. airline industry for the purposes of evaluating the proposals in the NPRM. The AAI also offers suggestions in various areas where the NPRM proposals could be refined to better achieve the FAA’s procompetitive goals.
