Room To Spare

overhead stewart airport

Operating with two runways and seven gates, Stewart International Airport averages around 10 flights per day. Our terminal capacity could easily accommodate seven times our current volume. To look at it another way, we could easily handle an additional 2.8 million customers annually.

Stewart is poised to grow beyond our already robust facilities. With a keen eye on the future of the Hudson Valley and international expansion, the Port Authority is dedicated to improving Stewart International Airport as the region grows in economic prominence.

Low Taxi Time

Since taking over Stewart International Airport’s lease in 2007, we’ve worked to improve already low taxi times, by making technological investments and improving taxiway edge lighting systems.

Our airport is truly “easy in, easy out” and our efforts have resulted in shorter taxi times, reducing overall block hour cost. Our ground times are considerably lower in comparison to other area airports. Further infrastructure investments will be aimed at maintaining and improving our competitive position among area airports as traffic increases.

MGTW will be as certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. For more information, download a PDF of our rates here.
