Long Island MacArthur Airport will soon provide daily direct flights to Washington, D.C., according to a report in Newsday.
The story says US Airways is expected to announce Tuesday flights beginning on March 25 that will depart MacArthur at 6:20 a.m. and 7:49 a.m. daily, returning from Reagan National at 11:35 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily.
MacArthur officials have been upfront about their desires to attract new airlines to the Town of Islip airport. There have been recent rumors of JetBlue landing its wings at MacArthur. A few years ago, there was talk of Ireland-based Ryanair providing flights to Dublin from MacArthur, although that never came to fruition.
With that mind, let's hear from you. MacArthur will soon go to direct to the nation's capital. Where else would you like to see the airport fly on a daily basis? Which new cities might be enough for you to change your airport of choice?
