Fear of air traffic spike fuels Teterboro curfew criticism

Posted: Updated:

The once fairly quiet Morristown Airport could soon be feeling the side effects of Teterboro Airport's new nighttime curfew.

On Wednesday, major aircraft operators agreed to eliminate loud jets and keep planes from landing between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. at the Port Authority-run airport. People who live and work in Morris County, however, fear that the loud jets will now be landing at their town's airport. William Barkauser, director of the Morristown Airport, says both of these recent measures by Teterboro are questionable. He says Teterboro and the Port Authority may be in violation of federal airport laws. A public meeting regarding Teterboro's new rules is scheduled for November 9.
