Despite the fact that last year was the worst year for flight volume at area airports (The worst since 2004, according to the NY Times.) the numbers at Laguardia and Kennedy are impressive nonetheless.
In the 12 months of 2009 nearly 23 million (22,829,249) passengers passed through the airport on just under 354 thousand flights (353,834).
And when those passengers arrive in NYC they make their way home or to their hotels via nearly 3.25 million (3,247,619) taxis dispatched from the airport.
Nearly 1.5 million (1,467,839) cars were parked in the LGA parking lots over that year, waiting for their owners to return home.
