To build for the future, we in the Hudson Valley Region need Stewart International Airport, Newburgh, NY to provide better services. Too few direct routes and ridiculous airfares keep Stewart Newburgh Airport held back in the 1900 century. What this area needs is a carrier that will compete with Newark, NJ and LaGuardia, NY Airports.
"On November 1, 2007, the Port Authority of NY/NJ officially took control of Stewart International Airport. Then NYS Governor Eliot Spitzer and officials from the Port Authority and Hudson Valley communities vowed to develop the underutilized facility into a strong regional airport while also helping to alleviate congestion and ease delays at the NY/NJ area airports." (see attached Port Authority Press Release Article dated Nov 01, 2007, Press Release #: 94-2007, http://www.panynj.gov/press-room/press-item.cfm?headLine_id=923) below.
Although there has been talk of the agency's short, medium and long term plans for the Airport which include the upgrade of Stewart and increase customer access to the airport (PA Press Release Article dated Oct 31, 2008, Press Release # 125-2008, http://www.panynj.gov/press-room/press-item.cfm?headLine_id=1067), in the years since, suggestions for more direct flights and lower airfares from the Airport seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
To increase ridership to and from our area, the people of the region need to be able to utilize the Airport. We cannot, and do not do so because it is easier and less expensive in the long run to fly out of one of the larger NY/NJ airports. Fair deals and more direct flights will bring Stewart's ridership to its potential. We, as a community united need to express our needs, and only then, united, we build a better future.
Please join us by supporting our cause in asking for lower airfares and more direct flights from Stewart International Airport

William Cintron, United States3 years ago Comments: It is taking a long time to get Stewart Airport developed. Too slow. There is more activity at the big three compared to our airport. We need the development more then Newark, LaGuardia and JFK. Stewart needs to build the Customs station and a 8 to14 gate addition. They can take some routes that these airports currently travel too and reroute them out of Stewart. It's not rocket science. Make the addition and they will come.
