New York State governor Andrew Cuomo has proposed a USD27 million modernisation project at Stewart International Airport.
The deal would involve construction of a permanent US Customs and Border Protection Federal Inspection Station (FIS). Project design is expected to be completed by the third quarter (Q3) of 2018, and construction of the new FIS is expected to be completed by Q1 2021. Other aspects of the plan include a USD7 million solar photovoltaic array in airport car parks.
Cuomo urged the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), which operates the airport, to approve the plan and go along with his idea of renaming it New York International at Stewart Field.
