Serving the Long Island region on the outskirts of New York City, the Long Island MacArthur Airport receives very limited non-stop service. Located in the small densely populated community of Ronkonkoma in Suffolk County, this regional airport is only served by two airlines because New York City’s two major airports (JFK and LaGuardia) are within driving distance from Long Island MacArthur Airport.
Southwest Airlines invites passengers at Long Island MacArthur Airport to some of the best resort destinations in the southeast of the United States. The largest low-cost airline in the country takes its Long Island customers to all major resort regions within Florida. The direct Southwest Airlines flights to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Palm Beach International Airport can be used to get to the Miami Metropolitan Area. Operating non-stop flights to Orlando International Airport, this major low-fare carrier also invites families to come to Walt Disney World Resort. Florida’s Gulf Coast is also accessible to passengers who board Southwest Airlines flights to Tampa International Airport and Southwest Florida International Airport in the Fort Myers area.
Long Island MacArthur Airport is directly linked to Maryland’s largest city thanks to non-stop Southwest Airlines trips to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The main airport in Baltimore is also considered one of the major airports in the Washington D.C. area. Passengers can board the Southwest Airlines fleet of Boeing jets from the A gates in the East Concourse at Long Island MacArthur Airport.
US Airways is the only other airline that serves Long Island MacArthur Airport. This large American carrier connects the Long Island area with one of the most important and historic cities on the East Coast. All year long, US Airways Express service is available to Philadelphia International Airport. The Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is the other destination that is listed on the schedule of US Airways Express. The US Airways flight to Washington D.C. is more convenient than the Southwest Airlines trip to Baltimore because Washington National Airport is located right next to the Downtown area of the nation’s capital. US Airways uses the B Gates in the West Concourse of Long Island MacArthur Airport.
Passengers at Long Island MacArthur Airport can also connect to hundreds of domestic and international destinations by using Southwest Airlines and US Airways for transfers at other major airports. Both of these companies have multiple hubs throughout various regions of the United States.
