Several South Jersey airports may be approved to handle larger planes under a state plan. "The Press of Atlantic City" is reporting the state will recommend that Cape May Airport and Hammonton's municiap airport be upgraded to the advanced service category. That would mean they could be used for larger planes, and as relief facilities for airports with regular flights.

Woodbine's municipal airport also might be considered for an upgrade, the paper says.

When Atlantic City's Bader Field closed in 2006, pilots who normally used it turned to other airports, including the ones in Hammonton and Woodbine.
