ACY Launches Daily Service to Houston and Chicago with United Airlines

Longtime NJ SEED member, the Port Authority of NY and NJ (PANYNJ), this morning celebrated the inauguration of daily service between the Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) and two hubs. United Airlines will provide nonstop service from Chicago and Houston. The flights will be operated by United Express carrier ExpressJet using 50-seat Embraer aircraft. It's all part of a makeover of the airport undertaken by the Port Authority, which took over operations there last year. The changes aim to bring more economic activity to the region, particularly Atlantic City and its casinos. Read the rest of this entry »

NJ DOT Commissioner and Other Leaders Address NJ SEED Members

2014-03-05 12.06.00 croppedNJ SEED held its first Quarterly Board of Trustees and Membership meeting of the year on March 5, 2014 at the Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN). The meeting was very well-attended and saw such prominent speakers as James Simpson, Commissioner, NJ Department of Transportation, Assemblyman John DiMaio, Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes, Mercer County CFO David Miller, Kevin Drennan, Executive Director, Senate Democratic Office, Steve Gardner, Executive Director, Assembly Majority Office.

Mercer County CFO David Miller opened the remarks Wednesday by updating the members of NJ SEED on the tremendous progress the Trenton-Mercer airport has made within the past few months. Realizing the economic potential that the airport can harnesses due to its strategic location in the region as well as the extent of its facilities, the airport this year received 20% of the total aviation grant program funding that is provided by the DOT. Through this funding, Trenton-Mercer has added four times the amount of daily flights (2 per day to 8), constructed longer runways for larger aircraft, installed necessary safety devices including the state-of-the-art EMAS runway braking cement, and redesigned the interior of the terminal to be more accommodating to passengers. All of these improvements to the airport were completed in a 60 day overhaul, bringing TTN, in terms of size, from 490th of 550 airports nationwide to 195th, an astonishing level of progress.

Member in the News – One WTC on the cover of TIME Magazine

Longtime NJ SEED member, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), for over a year has worked with with TIME Magazine to collaborate on the foldout cover of TIME Magazine. The images hit newsstands today!

TIME approached the PA wanting to capture an iconic image from atop One WTC’s spire and the result is breathtaking. The link below includes an interactive panorama from atop the spire, a remarkable and intimate film by Shaul Schwarz about the individuals responsible for building One World Trade Center, a deeply-reported story, and a behind the scenes film showing how we managed to capture the image.

We hope you enjoy the stunning video and images. Shopify_thumb_1_1024x1024
