      Hey Paul, there are handicap spots in all of our lots, that will be closest to the gate to minimize walking distance. Please simply show your handicap placard and they will direct you where to park in the general lot. You might also consider the Taxiway parking, which is nearest to the gate.

    Good Afternoon, this is my first time coming to this Airshow. I purchased the Taxiway Parking what is the best way or what road should I use to access the Taxiway Parking? I’m staying at a hotel on the East side of Route 87.

    With the Taxiway parking…”wait 30 minutes after the Blue Angels land to depart from the lot”
    Does this mean for leaving the show? If for some reason we wanted to leave around 2pm, are we unable to if the Blue Angels have not landed yet?

    • NY Air Show says:

      Yes, though you will need to follow any TFR and other instructions provided by the team at NY Stewart International Airport regarding incoming flights during the weekend of the show.
