NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Passenger traffic at New York's three major airports plus Atlantic City is on a record-setting pace.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says more than 60 million travelers used Newark Liberty, LaGuardia and Kennedy airports in the first six months of 2016.

Counting Atlantic City Airport, they say 62.4 million travelers passed through Port Authority airports between January and the end of June. That's an increase of more than 6 percent over the same period in 2015.

JFK, Newark and LaGuardia all set individual passenger records in the first six months of this year. JFK served about 28 million passengers, followed by Newark with more than 19 million and LaGuardia with more than 14 million.

Atlantic City saw a 1.6 percent increase.
