The state Senate?s May approval of The New York Airline Passenger Bill of Rights has put MacArthur Airport on the forefront of passenger protection.
New York airports like Islip?s MacArthur Airport are now offering guarantees to travelers for basic amenities in the event of major delays, like the ones that took place during this year?s Valentines Day storm. New York is the first state in the nation to take such action.
The bill guarantees travelers snacks, fresh air, water, electricity and working bathrooms if they experience a delay lasting longer than three hours.
If an airport is found guilty of not meeting the bill?s expectations, it can face fines of up to $1000 per person affected and per infraction.
