New York airport resurrects
Almost abandoned the Stewart offers ultra low-cost flights to Europe
New York-Stewart International Airport had been nearly abandoned after ultra low-cost European airline Norwegian Air left the airport in Summer 2019, after just two years of service, because of the grounding of B-737 MAX planes due to two fatal accidents. A snub for the facility, located 96 kilometers from the Big Apple. However, today it is experiencing an important relaunch.
The first flight tickets for 22 European destinations, including Dublin, Paris, Copenhagen and Brussels, operated by the Icelandic airline Play, are on sale since yesterday. The service will begin on June 9, 2022 and will be operated with A-321 Neo aircraft. A B-787 Dreamliner from Norway's Norse Atlantic Airways will also begin flying earlier in the Spring.
After a three-year hiatus, the airport is back under the magnifying glass of European airlines looking to reactivate its international service of low-cost connections. The latest two bids at the airport are from two European air carriers, Frontier Airlines and Allegiant Air.
