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.

    Do you have any information for people flying into Stewart International the day of the event? Expected NOTAMS/Arrival/Departure/Parking information would be helpful.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hi Bill, all commercial flights coming in and out of Stewart will run as scheduled. Parking at the airport is reserved for airport guests with boarding passes only; air show parking is located in a separate area. However, there will be an increased volume of traffic due to the air show, so if you are departing from Stewart or picking a guests up during the hours of the show (9 am to about 5 pm), we recommend planning an extra hour or so of travel time to get there. You can contact Stewart directly regarding any NOTAMs.

    Can you confirm, how/when we can purchase a parking permit for the air show 2019 please? The link just shows a blank page. Once you enter the airshow are you able to go back to your car e.g. to leave purchases?

    • NY Air Show says:

      We’ll be sending out the link for parking in the next few months, closer to the date of the show. If you’ve bought your tickets already, you’ll get an email about it! You are not allowed to enter, leave and return to the show. Please bring any items that you will need with you from your car. No readmittance will be allowed.

    I don’t have car license, so I’ll walk from short line bus terminal. Is it OK to walk in from entrance gate?
    And I’m planning to ride on Stewart Airport Express bus, but I saw only the people who have plane ticket can enter the airport. Can I ride on this bus?

    • NY Air Show says:

      You can walk into the front admission gates; however there’s not a direct path so we recommend connecting with a RideApp like Uber or Lyft to get over to the entrance. You cannot get inside the airport; that’s only for airline customers.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey Nicole – there will be on our pre-event tickets purchased at physical locations, but it’s only 40% off and right now tickets are on sale for 50% off, so I’d just go ahead and buy now!

    if I buy special parking ticket 25$, then I should be there before 10 am. What happens if I get there by 10:45.
    Also, if I get 15$ ticket, how frequently shuttle operates between parking and show area or show and parking. I am going there with kids and I need to plan carefully.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey Ali, if you get to the preferred parking after 10 am unfortunately, you will have to be redirected to the regular lot. We have lots of shuttles running between parking and the show area, so there should be no problem if you go with the $15 ticket.
