Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) serves as an alternative hub for passengers accessing the New York area. The airport is situated 11km (7 miles) northeast of the central business district of Islip. The town of Islip owns the airport, which provides service to more than two million passengers per year, primarily from the Nassau and Suffolk counties.
As it’s a small airport, it serves as a more convenient and less congested alternative to other, busier airports in the area, such as JFK or LaGuardia. Flights to Long Island MacArthur Airport arrive from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago-Midway, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, and West Palm Beach.
You can expect a quiet and friendly atmosphere at the airport, and can enjoy browsing through the bookshop or one of the newsagents before your flight takes off.
