“Signature Flight Support offers unparalleled hospitality and service, making it a vital asset to Stewart International Airport,” said Ed Harrison, General Manager of Stewart International Airport. “Today’s announcement highlights the Port Authority’s efforts to position the airport for growth while encouraging air service development opportunities beyond commercial and cargo. We look forward to this continued partnership as it helps to strengthen our airport's role as an economic driver that creates jobs for the region.”
