Newburgh/Stewart International Airport

Stewart has a long and varied history that goes back to the earliest days of aviation. In 1930, Thomas Archibald ("Archie") Stewart, an aviation buff and grandson of Lachlan Stewart, a sea captain and lumber merchant who later retired to a dairy farm, had the idea that a city in the 20th century would need an airport to thrive. He persuaded his uncle, Samuel L. Stewart, to donate the original land to the city of Newburgh, and facilitated the transfer of the land to the federal government for $1.

In 1939, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point built the first airfield at Stewart for cadet aviation training, later dedicating it as the "Wings of West Point." In 1948, the airfield became Stewart Air Force Base. It was deactivated and acquired by the state of New York in 1970.

In the 1980s, several business enterprises began operations at the airport after the State Department of Transportation and the Urban Development Corporation began planning for the development of airport land under Stewart Properties.

In 1989, American Airlines announced the beginning of scheduled passenger service at the airport, followed by American Eagle and United Express. That same year, the airport opened its 50,000-square-foot air cargo building, and the U.S. Postal Service opened its new 300,000-square-foot Federal Mail Distribution Facility. On March 31, 2000, SWF became the nation's first privatized commercial airport under a 99-year lease agreement with National Express.

In 2007, the Port Authority took over operations at Stewart and committed $500 million as part of a ten-year capital improvement plan to expand the airport.

 

The Port Authority and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are dedicated to making your travel experience safe and secure. We ask you to take a moment to become familiar with some important security measures. By reviewing them now, you will save time at the airport.

The key to getting through the airport faster is being prepared. Take these steps in order to minimize time at security checkpoints:

  • Pack luggage in layers (this increases visibility when baggage is scanned)

  • Ready your boarding pass and ID

  • Take off outer garments and shoes

  • Place any loose metal objects in your carry-on

  • Remove your laptop from your bag and place it in the bin

  • Passengers should consider placing additional items in checked baggage since this will ensure a more efficient screening process at TSA screening checkpoints (passengers are reminded that the air carriers request they bring only one carry-on bag and one personal item per person).

  • Passengers are encouraged to have prescription cards for all medications including syringes. Medications should be in original packaging.

  • Passengers can also expect additional security procedures to be in place including possible body pat downs.

  • Passengers should give themselves extra time to check in and proceed through the security checkpoint before their flight, especially during the busy holiday travel season.

Liquids: Keep in mind that liquids are allowed in carry-on luggage only in accordance with the TSA's 3-1-1 format. Please review this policy .

TRANSPORTING FIREARMS

State gun laws vary considerably. Before possessing and carrying firearms into New York or New Jersey, please be aware of local state gun control laws. Please check with New York State Police or New Jersey State Police prior to possessing and carrying a weapon into New York or New Jersey.

TRAVELING WITH PETS

When traveling with pets, pets should remain in their carriers at all times except for service animals. The Port Authority of NY and NJ and our airport partners have provided pet relief areas for customers. These areas are located in the arrivals area of each terminal. Follow the signs in the baggage claim areas or ask a Customer Care Representative for information.

Owners can take their animals to these pet relief areas and allow the pets to relieve themselves. Owners are expected to clean up after their animals with the materials provided in the pet relief areas. Pet owners whose animals have an accident elsewhere in the terminal are expected to clean up after their animals and notify a member of the cleaning crew.

There are no pet relief areas beyond security checkpoints in any of the terminals at the Port Authority airports.

As policies relating to the transportation of pets vary by airline and time of year, we suggest you contact your airlines directly for details.
