FIS – Federal Inspection Station
The Port Authority of NY and NJ has approved and begun the construction of a $37 million international arrivals facility at New York Stewart International Airport. Construction began earlier this summer and the concrete foundation and slab have recently been poured. The 20,000 square foot addition is being constructed at the north end of Stewart’s passenger terminal and is expected to be completed by the fall of 2020.
New York Air Show
The fifth annual New York International Air Show took place on August 24 and 25 at New York Stewart International Airport. The show was a huge success bringing in an estimated 50,000 people in two days, a record attendance.
The show began with the West Point parachute team jumping into the show with the American flag. The Navy’s Blue Angels, making their third appearance here at Stewart, once again gave an amazing performance with their formations, steep climbs, and incredible speed. The show also featured the first Stewart appearance of the Royal Air Force’s Red Arrows, also known for their precision flying. The Red Arrows astounded us with their red, white and blue smoke as they created artwork in the sky. Another top act was the F-35 Lightning II demonstration team. Ear plugs were surely needed!
The airport is already making plans for the 2020 New York Air Show for August 29 and 30.
