New York LaGuardia International Airport / John F. Kennedy International Airport

New York's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International Airport's both serve as a crew base for Envoy Virtual pilots in New York City, as operations exist out of both airports, and often flights take place between the two airports for repositioning one aircraft from one airport to the other. A majority of the aircraft are operated out of LaGuardia though.
