The FAA is redesigning airspace and addressing airspace inefficiencies, introducing new Performance Based Navigation (PBN) procedures and making use of Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) to make the New York/Philadelphia Metroplex airspace more efficient and improving access to its airports. The effort focuses on a number of airports, including Newark Liberty International (EWR), Republic (FRG), Westchester County (HPN), New Castle (ILG), Long Island MacArthur (ISP), John F. Kennedy International (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), Morristown Municipal (MMU), Philadelphia International (PHL), Northeast Philadelphia (PNE), Stewart International (SWF), and Teterboro (TEB).

All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.
