For August 8-15, New York Newark handled 1,250 movements, which is an increase of 10.62% based on a seven-day rolling average.

Whilst this is around 18 movements lower than the pre-pandemic era of 2019, the table below shows numbers are strengthening and bouncing in and out of that target:

July 25-August 11255 movements1171 movements1192 movements+1.79%

What we can see from the data is that New York Newark is edging in and out of that pre-pandemic target, with the pattern starting to show now that they are coming out of such woes on the movements front.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the airport to see how the rest of the year will go, with the expectation that movement numbers should begin to consistently exceed 2019’s levels.

But for now, let’s see whether anymore stakeholders increase services out of the airport, and whether this will contribute positively to future growth.
