Stewart to become “major international gateway,” Port Authority chief says

Cotton: "... a truly major international
gateway ..."

TOWN OF WALLKILL – The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, operator of Stewart International Airport, has big plans for the Newburgh area airport.

Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton told the Orange County Partnership’s Most Valuable Partner breakfast on Wednesday with passenger and cargo growth, the facility is destined to become a major player, especially when the federal inspection station at the terminal is constructed in the not-too-distant future.

“The customs and immigration facility is really an event for us and we are committed in terms of having Stewart become a truly major international gateway, not just to the Hudson Valley – although that is going to be an enormous driver – but to be a gateway to the entire metropolitan area,” Cotton said.

The Port Authority, which also operates the big three New York metro airports, was named the 2018 Partnership’s MVP.
