Long Island MacArthur Airport – It’s More Than Just An Airport!

Islip Town Board Showcase Slate of Improvements That Make Traveling Even Better for Long Islanders

RONKONKOMA, NY – Town of Islip officials today marked the completion of significant upgrades at Islip’s Long Island MacArthur Airport that make it “more than just an airport.” Gathered at the airport’s newly finished, glass-enclosed, palm-tree-lined atrium, officials at the ceremony outlined the numerous improvements made to the airport terminal designed to enhance its appeal to the traveling public.

“MacArthur Airport is an important economic resource for the Town of Islip, and all of Long Island,” said Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci. “It generates millions of dollars on an annual basis, while providing thousands of jobs at airport facilities and beyond the airport. The residents of Islip and the business and leisure travelers of Nassau and Suffolk counties enjoy flying out of MacArthur Airport. I want to thank Airport Commissioner Bob Schaefer and his staff for all they have accomplished in such a short time.”
