Stewart Airport Welcomes PLAY Airlines, New $37 Million Facility

Report last week that a new international airline is coming to New York Stewart International Airport later this year raised hopes that it will play a key role in the airport’s efforts to bounce back in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. .

It will also be the first airline to use Stewart’s new $37 million international arrivals facility, which has been added to the north end of the terminal in recent years and was first unveiled this month.

Several airlines have suspended Stewart’s service over the past two years, and currently only two airlines offer regular scheduled flights.

New York Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, NY on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

On Tuesday, the Port Authority, which Stewart runs, announced that PLAY Airlines will offer daily flights to Reykjavik, Iceland, where it is based, and from there will provide a springboard for international travelers to reach more than 20 European cities.

Flights begin June 9 at Stewart, which lies along the border between the towns of Newburgh and New Windsor in Orange County.

Melanie Combe is one of the travelers looking forward to the arrival of PLAY to Stewart.
