A Smooth Runway in Record Time

Reporter 65
It's the runway reconstruction project whose impact was felt worldwide. New York's John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport’s main Bay Runway, was in need of repair. JFK's governing organizations intensively researched the best possible methods and procedures to either repair or replace the aging runway. Flight delays resulting from a completely shutdown Bay Runway could potentially impact worldwide flight timetables. JFK International Airport serves 48 million passengers and 440,000 flights annually, with the total number of air passenger traffic expected to increase by 20 percent over the next decade. Bay Runway handles about one third of the annual operations, including more than half of all departures. The newly rebuilt runway was expected to reduce delays overall by an estimated 10,500 hours per year.
