Stewart Has a Bright Future Ahead Of It

STEWART AIRPORT – The Port Authority faces challenges at New York Stewart International Airport, but the facility has a bright future, the executive deputy commissioner of the State Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

Ronald Epstein told the Stewart Airport Commission that Stewart is a bright spot in New York.
“In the face of global pilot shortages, the whole issue in terms of airline consolidations and the grounding of the 737 Max, your numbers are really strong and that is a testament to the Port Authority’s operations here,” he said.

Airports are the gateways to communities, Epstein said, noting that they attract economic development and are one reason why businesses locate in a community.
