It's comparing the airport of NY with other 50 airports. So it's comparing a noun not a clause or a phrase. So the Answer should be C

I believe this is an As vs. Like question...this is what I learned in PR class.

you should use "As" to compare Actions,

EX: He did not vote for the Republican party, as I did...

You should use "Like" to compare nouns,

EX: Like the Donkey, mule is a close relative of the horse...

so you can eliminate "As" in A & B

C is the best answer because its short and to the point compare to D & E. Also, I think D & E are both comparing cities to airport, which is incorrect...

C, Compares airports to airports (noun to noun) so like is appropriate here.
