Read the HIA-LI Press Release. Listen to the HIA-LI Travel Survey Interview on LINews.
The Long Island business community has spoken loud & strong according to a just-released Travel Survey conducted by HIA-LI.
What would it mean to the Long Island business community to see additional flights from MacArthur Airport? A survey just released by HIA-LI reveals additional non-stop destinations would translate to over $1 billion spent at the airport specifically from Nassau & Suffolk County businesses.
Over 500 businesses responded to the survey conducted in August 2021, indicating preferences and plans for current and future travel. Results also state that when businesses were asked how much of their travel budgets they would use at MacArthur Airport if more non-stop destinations were added, companies reported that, on average, they would spend 78.8% of their travel budgets (compared to 36% being used now) at MacArthur Airport.
Past Board Chair and current Chair of the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge Task Force, Joe Campolo, Managing Partner at Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP will present the full findings of the HIA-LI Travel Survey at the next HIA-LI Task Force meeting on October 13th.
