The New York City metropolitan area's JFK International, LaGuardia, and Newark Liberty International airports combine to create the largest airport system in the United States, second in the world in terms of passenger traffic, and first in the world in terms of total flight operations.

In 2011 the airport handled 24.1 million passengers; In 2014, LaGuardia Airport had a strong growth in passenger traffic; about 27 million passengers used the airport, a 1.2 percent increase from the previous year.

JFK handled 53.3 million and Newark handled 35.6 million,a total of about 115.9 million travelers using New York airports.

LaGuardia is the busiest airport in the United States without any non-stop service to Europe. A perimeter rule prohibits nonstop flights to or from points beyond 1,500 statute miles (2,400 km). Exceptions to the perimeter rule are flights on Saturdays and flights to Denver. Most transcontinental flights use JFK or Newark as do all international flights except those from airports within the perimeter which also have United States border preclearance. There is no border control facility at the airport.
