The Town of Islip owns and operates Long Island MacArthur Airport, located in Ronkonkoma, 50 miles outside New York City. More than 5,000 people fly MacArthur Airport each day, making it one of the top 110 airports in the United States.
Long Island MacArthur Airport is a public airport located on Long Island, in Ronkonkoma, Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, United States. It is approximately one mile south of the Ronkonkoma Branch of the Long Island Railroad and has a dedicated shuttle to connect the airport to the rail line. Long Island MacArthur Airport covers an area of 1,311 acres (531 ha) containing four runways and two helipads. The Town owns and operates the airport, which serves approximately two million commercial passengers a year, as well as a thriving general aviation sector. The Department of Aviation is led by the Commissioner of Aviation and Transportation, who works closely with the Town Board to manage and steward the airport. Departments include Airport Operations, Custodial, Fire Rescue, Law Enforcement, Maintenance, and Public Affairs.
Located between Montauk Point 67 miles (108 km) to the east and Manhattan 50 miles (71 km) to the west, MacArthur Airport serves primarily the three million residents of Nassau and Suffolk counties. In addition, the airport serves travelers from the Greater New York Metropolitan Area and around the nation who want a more convenient alternative to the congestion at JFK and LaGuardia airports – both located in Queens.
The FAA designated MacArthur Airport an Official Metro Airport in early 2011, meaning it is now grouped with LaGuardia, JFK and Newark in travel and informational searches for New York airports, providing better exposure to the traveling public. MacArthur Airport, which does not share the congested air space of the city-centric airports, also has an exceptional record of on-time performance.
Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter and MacArthur Airport Commissioner Shelley LaRose-Arken recently sat down to speak with WLIW21s Long Island Business Report.
