Debate on JFK Expansion Raises Interesting Cargo, Passenger Capacity Issues

New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, is seeking to invest billions to make the JFK and LaGuardia Airport environments more passenger-friendly.  The addition of hotels, conference space, and dining would boost the economies surrounding the high-volume airports, which currently rank very low in customer satisfaction. Cuomo proposes that the expanded passenger amenities would push a portion of JFK’s cargo handling capacity upstate to Stewart airport. Certain members of the shipping community strongly oppose this, fearing that disruption of the local JFK trade network of customs brokers and freight forwarders would harm the multi-billion dollar trade-related economy.

While cases can be made on both sides of the issue, the debate highlights the criticality of sufficient capacity in both the cargo and passenger environments to an economy. In dense metropolitan areas where expanding physical infrastructure can be a challenge, reliance on efficient processes is all the more critical.
