The four New York metropolitan-area commercial airports have set an all-time record in 2013 for the number of passengers flying in and out.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced Monday that the airports saw a total of 111.6 million passengers last year.

They are John F. Kennedy, Newark Liberty, Stewart International and LaGuardia airports.

Kennedy had approximately 50 million passengers. LaGuardia had 27 million, Newark had 34 million and Stewart had 320,000.

In 2012, the number of passengers at all four airports was 109.4 million.

The 2013 record surpassed the previous mark, set in 2007. That year, 109.4 million passengers used the airports.
