MacArthur Airport to launch ad campaign

Long Island MacArthur Airport plans to start advertising at Nassau Coliseum in the hopes of convincing hockey fans and national television audiences that the Ronkonkoma airport is an easy alternative to flying out of Queens. Islip Town unanimously voted to spend up to $50,000 for the yearlong campaign, to launch in time for the 2014-2015 Islanders season. The campaign will include video spots on the rink's scoreboards and signage on kiosks. Aug. 11, 2014. (Newsday Staff)
