Tweed Airport Wins Runway Lawsuit

The Tweed-New Haven Airport Authority along with the City of New Haven sought to invalidate a state statute that limited the runway’s length to 5,600 feet. The appeals court noted that Tweed’s runway is one of the shortest commercial airport runways in the country and that it lacked nonstop flights to Orlando, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta. The state Attorney General office has the option to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.
