AIRPORT OF THE WEEK:ATC now features an airport each week! This airport will remain open throughout the entire week except for during the FNF. Each airport featured is one of 2017's busiest airports.
This week’s featured airport is:
Newark Liberty International Airport [KEWR]
Voted on by you, we feature Newark as the HUB for this week’s exploration! EWR is located just 9 miles from Manhattan and is one of three major airports to serve the New York City area. Pinned in on nearly all sides, this airport is a challenge for controllers and pilots as they watch for traffic and fly with precision to remain clear of other’s airspace. Join us this week as we explore the many United routes, both domestic and abroad, while seeing the world.
Local flights between neighboring New York City airports not authorized. Restrictions will be enforced by ATC.
