Northeast Airlines Selects Stewart Airport for New York Hub
Northeast Yellowbirds opts to establish roots in Newburgh, NY
By: Northeast Media
Northeast Airlines formally announced after a midday meeting today from their parent offices of the Volare Air Group, that the airline has concluded with a relaunch strategy to hub their incoming fleet from the Stewart Airport in Newburgh, New York.
This announcement comes after several weeks of predetermined cities were being evaluated for their best possible location that was best for the growth of the new franchise. Stewart has always been a strong contender in evaluating the current needs of the traveling public both from a northern system perspective, as well as facilitating the needs of many local residents' within the airport's geographic footprint.
Many New Yorkers alone that live within a 50 to 70 mile radius of Stewart, commute for various destination departures through either JFK or La Guardia. Additionally, there are other inhabitants of the immediate area that sometimes face a challenge when business travel requires them to travel to nearby destinations, and are forced into scenarios that move them out of their way with other carriers to city's such as Baltimore, Chicago, or even Charlotte, and then bring them back to the same area that they originated from just to make their final destinations.
The new Northeast system will not situate the traveling public with built in transfers at the most needed connections within our system.
Details are currently being ratified with the current administration of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, but the overall blueprint has been devised and commitments are now on the table between the two groups that are leveraged to inking a final deal for the presence in Stewart.
"We are a proactive and progressive modern carrier that is extremely encouraged by the reception that we have received from both the Port Authority and the people of the great state of New York".
Many of the dynamics to this relationship are in the final draft stages, but for all intense purposes, both sides have "cut teeth" in moving this commitment to fruition.
We are absolutely pleased with the new friendships that have been made with this plan, and we look forward to accommodating the traveling public, and providing some economic stimulus to various locations throughout the state.
