UN General Assembly session means more business for Stewart Airport


NEW WINDSOR – The general aviation parking area at Stewart Airport is loaded with over a dozen aircrafts from foreign nations.
Each fall when the UN General Assembly convenes, several of the foreign dignitaries are dropped at one of the larger metro airports, then their official government jets are flown to the Newburgh area airport where they are parked for the duration of the session.

Atlantic Aviation, one of the airport’s fixed base operators, handles the arrangements for parking and refueling, if required.
The aircraft also mean additional landing fees for the airport.
Parked on the highly secure Air National Guard side of the airport is Air Force One, which most years also parked at Stewart while the president attended the General Assembly session.
