“We are honored to be one of the 15 airports selected by a panel of experts,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “We are hoping our loyal base of travelers and the Long Island community will vote each day.”


The site describes these top facilities as being “smaller, friendlier airports” that “excel with their commercial flight offerings, easy access and amenities.” The small airport category includes airports with fewer than 10 million passengers each year.


“MacArthur Airport is working hard to provide an excellent customer experience,” said Aviation Commissioner Shelley LaRose-Arken. “It’s gratifying that the experts participating in the USA Today 10Best Awards recognize MacArthur’s ability to conveniently serve New York travelers."
