A new study commissioned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey calls for major expansion at all three of the New York area airports.
The report states that traffic at JFK and LaGuardia Airports in New York City and Newark Liberty International in New Jersey could rise 50 percent over the next 20 years.
A large spike in traffic could cause major problems at LaGuardia and Newark International, currently two of the worst airports in regards to on-time performance.
The study offers a $15 billion plan that would add runways at JFK and Newark Liberty International and enhance PATH train service to Newark.
The report states that there is no room for expansion at LaGuardia but calls for a major overhaul of its existing infrastructure.
