A well-organized group of opponents has launched a campaign aimed at restricting airport operations. Some have even gone so far as to say that the airport should be all but closed. Now is the time for all those who value the airport and recognize its importance to express their support. That’s why the Coalition for Westchester Airport has been formed.
Westchester County Airport is a key element in the county’s transportation infrastructure, serving an average of 1.5 million passengers each year. The airport is essential for economic development, helping to attract and retain businesses while supporting thousands of jobs. Yet the future of the airport is in jeopardy. Spearheaded by the Business Council of Westchester, the Coalition for Westchester Airport represents a broad range of businesses, entrepreneurs, labor organizations, employees, educators, nonprofits and residents who support making responsible enhancements to secure the future of the airport. Advocating for a cooperative relationship with the FAA, the Coalition for Westchester Airport believes that a Public/Private Partnership is the right approach for Westchester Airport.
