Stewart to offer airlines incentives to compete against other area airports
PA wants Stewart on a level playing field with
other regional airports
NEW YORK –
Stewart Airport will offer incentives to airlines to start non-stop service from the Newburgh area facility. Carriers will receive financial and marketing incentives during the first year of service, providing it is within a two year window from November 2010 to October 2012.
The aim of the program, said Port Authority Aviation Director Susan Baer, is to compete against other regional airports.
“The program, which is designed to mitigate carrier startup risk during the critical risk during the first year of service, will enable Stewart to compete with similar airports in Albany, Hartford and Westchester County,” she told Port Authority board members.
Stewart offered incentives for a limited period of time in 2008, which saw JetBlue use larger aircraft and US Airways add an additional daily flight.
