Directions and Parking
The show site for the New York International Air Show is located on the SOUTH SIDE of the airfield. Follow the directions below that are shown on the above map when arriving to the New York Air Show to insure the best possible experience when arriving to the event. These directions will lead you to the air show that is on the airfield with complimentary shuttle service included to the main entrance gate.
Spectators will not be permitted to enter the 1st street gate in 2019 as it has been designated as a vehicle entrance gate. The only public entrance will be via the onfield parking across to the main entrance. Due to increased passenger traffic at New York Stewart Int’l Airport, security will be posted at the terminal parking and only ticketed passengers displaying a valid boarding pass will be permitted to enter.
Once you park please proceed to the show site as soon as possible. Anyone caught lingering in the parking lot will be escorted out by airport security due to FAA regulations governing secondary spectators areas outside the designated event site.
Save 25% and expedite your arrival when you purchase general parking in advance for just $15. Skip the shuttle bus and park and walk to the main entrance when you purchase Taxiway Parking. Only 600 Taxiway Parking spots are available per day and it is only available for purchase in advance of the show for $29.
IMPORTANT – With Taxiway (formerly Preferred) Parking you can park on the airfield and walk 1/4 mile or less to the entrance with no shuttle bus needed. Special vehicle entrance gate. You must arrive by 10am and wait 30 minutes after the Blue Angels land to depart from the lot. This is a good time to wait for the Blue Angel pilots and get their autographs after they perform.
