Ronkonkoma, NY (February 2, 2011) - Islip Town Supervisor Phil Nolan today hailed as a “crucial milestone” the official designation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that Long Island MacArthur Airport is now a New York airport.

For decades, the airport has been listed in the Federal Aviation Administration’s quarterly directory of airport facilities as an airport serving Islip Town. The FAA’s 2011 quarterly directory now puts MacArthur in the same category with Kennedy and LaGuardia airports. In June 2010, Nolan wrote a letter to the FAA requesting the change, arguing that the airport is a regional transportation hub whose catchment area extends well beyond the bounds of Islip Town.
