If you're looking for a cheap, one-way fare you now have more options when flying out of Newburgh.

At a time when major airports have become a nightmare to deal with, it's great to hear that there are now some new options available at Stewart Airport. Between long lines at security, computer issues and randomly canceled flights, traveling to a major New York City airport can be very stressful.

Just last week Terminal One at JFK International Airport was completely shut down for over 24 hours due to a power outage. Passengers were stranded with no way to fly out as empty planes turned around and left until the power was restored. And, of course, no one can forget the images of angry ticketholders stuck with no way to travel during the Southwest meltdown last month.

Flying out of Newburgh is not only more convenient and less crowded, but it can also save you quite a bit of money.
