Letter: Free advice for MacArthur Airport
Islip town is spending $100,000 for consultants to evaluate the declining use of Long Island MacArthur Airport ["Consultants hired to aid struggling airport," News, April 24].
Let me do it for free:
1. No direct rail access.
2. Parking is too expensive.
3. Zero advertising to eastern Nassau County.
4. No direct flights other than to some Florida airports.
Offer cheap parking and subsidized limousine and taxi service, provide flights to almost all destinations east of Chicago non-stop, and let the public know about it.
