The New York / New Jersey Air Cargo Center is unique among the world's air gateways, not only in the size, scope and volume of activities, but also because it includes four separate airports, interconnected by a vast road and rail network.
This impressive system allows for reliable means of transportation of air cargo, as well as a fast and efficient distribution of goods once they are on the ground.
Each airport serves the air cargo community in its own way; yet all work together under Port Authority management as a single, convenient, coordinated cargo center. It is the most extensive air-surface-seaport complex in the world - nearly 20 percent of all air cargo imported to the U.S. travels through John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).
Port Authority airports are connected to your consumers. More than 110 million consumers - nearly a third of North America's population -live within one day's drive, and 18 million of them are right in the New York / New Jersey region.
Weather conditions rarely restrict aircraft movement in the New York/New Jersey area. On average, the area has 20 more rain/snow days a year than Honolulu, and 10 fewer than Miami. The annual average temperature is 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and the area sees an average of 121 days of precipitation a year.
NY/NJ has the distinct advantage of being the only regional airport system in the U.S. to host both the United States Weather Bureau station for the area and the federal government National Oceanic Forecasting Office. This combination provides 24-hour, up-to-the-minute reporting and forecasting for the entire Western Hemisphere.
