MacArthur Airport Again Wins USA Today 10Best Awards

USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards Panel Experts once again nominated Long Island MacArthur Airport as one of the best Small Airports in the country for 2021. On February 12, 2021 MacArthur Airport was selected as one of the 10Best Small Airports coming in at position #4 out of the 15 nominees, and the nearly 400 US Airport serving 10 million or fewer passengers each year. USA Today 10Best calls the winners “smaller, friendlier airports that take some of the headache out of travel.”

According to USA Today 10Best – “While giant airports like JFK, LAX and Chicago O’Hare often dominate the travel scene due to the sheer number of passengers who pass through them each day, the United States is home to many smaller, friendlier airports that take some of the headache out of travel. These 10 airports serve fewer than 10 million passengers each year, yet excel with their commercial flight offerings, easy access and amenities.”
