Stewart Airport WIll Seek Bids for Hangar Space Development - Current Space Is Used Up


STEWART AIRPORT – New York Stewart International Airport is out of hangar space with only one new facility on the horizon. Signature Aviation has airport approval to construct a hangar with plans on the drawing board right now.


Airport Development Director Michael Torelli told the advisory Stewart Airport Commission on Tuesday that other hangar space may be in the offing.

“We are in the request for qualifications process to qualify developers to build hangars. The last call for that was just completed on November 15. Those new submissions for anybody who wants to be qualified are being reviewed, and then from that we will either go directly to lease negotiations or if people are interested in see sites, they will go through an RFP progress and compete against each other for the same site,” he said.

On the passenger service side of the airport, ridership continues to improve since the height of pandemic. Three airlines currently serve at Stewart – Allegiant and Frontier, both serving southern destinations, and Play Airways, which flies to Europe via Iceland. Torelli estimated that over 300,000 people will fly through Stewart by the end of the year. That compares with about 700,000 passengers in 2018, before COVID-19 emerged and effectively shut down air travel.
