WASHINGTON – New York Stewart International Airport has been awarded over $2.3 million in Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act Funding.

The money provides economic relief funds for costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, debt service payments and other items.

Allegiant was the only airline at Stewart that remained during the pandemic

All but one airline – Allegiant – pulled their service at Stewart completely because of the pandemic.

“This grant provides crucial support that allows us to maintain rigorous health and safety standards in order to protect frontline workers and the traveling public as we emerge from the pandemic,” said Huntley Lawrence, acting chief operating officer and director of the Aviation at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the operator of Stewart.

Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY-18) said Stewart is “a key part of our local economy here in the Hudson Valley. Ensuring they get the federal support they need is essential as our community works to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19.”
