Abstract : This report contains traffic estimates and forecasts for use in preparation of traffic sample inputs to a jet port site selection simulation study of a proposed additional airport to serve the New York Metropolitan Area. The report is primarily concerned with IFR operations by fixed-wing aircraft at eight airports which provide the principal airport network for IFR traffic flow in the New York area. Estimates of total and IFR annual, average day, peak day and busy hour operations for 1962 and 1968 are shown for these airports. Percentage distributions of IFR operations by owner category and aircraft class are also estimated for each airport. Trends of passenger traffic at the major New York commercial airline airports are presented and compared with several other recent forecasts. The Air Carrier aircraft flow pattern into these airports is summarized. (Author)
