After Winter Storm Grayson cancelled flights across the Northeast, we are grateful for the 40 MacArthur Airport staff members who worked in frigid temps with blowing snow to clear runways. Our first General Aviation departure was yesterday at 8:30 am, and our first commercial arrival landed at 10:25 am.
“The staff worked for 48 hours nonstop to clear 14 inches of snow,” explains Airport Director, Shelley LaRose-Arken. “They performed at the highest level using experience and shear dedication to return the airport to to full service.”
Due to Winter Storm Grayson, all airlines serving ISP cancelled flights for Jan 4 with systemwide travel advisories. Links to airline information are included below.
Passengers should please check with their airline regarding ALL flight-related questions, including delays, updates & potential cancellations. Our snow removal crews will be out once snow arrives. Airline decisions often reflect conditions at multiple airports affected by the storm.
