Southwest Construction Update at KISP
Southwest Airlines was just given final approval by the Town of Islip to start construction on their new terminal at Islip McArthur Airport. According to town officials the project will take a year to complete and Southwest can break ground immediately. Southwest already cleared the 15 acres of land needed for the project. Upon completion the new terminal will give Southwest over 10 gates, new retail space, new ticket counter space, and a new long term parking lot. Southwest said the new terminal would allow them to add over 70 flights a day in and out of Islip.
