The FAA will allow airlines flexibility on slot usage requirements for airports in the New York City area through Oct. 28, 2023. The agency continues to expect that airlines will operate larger aircraft to transport more passengers and make sure passengers are fully informed about any possible disruptions.
The new date coincides with the International Air Transport Association summer season when airlines have relatively higher levels of traffic.
The FAA is working closely with NATCA to implement a long-term solution to resolve ongoing low staffing levels at the New York Terminal Radar Approach Control (N90).
