For those who have flown in to attend NEAF, what air port is the best to fly into and get to NEAF from?

 

I will be flying on the 5th and going out late on the 7th from west coast then renting a car for the trip to Suffern.

 

Are Telerboro (TEB), NJ or Whiteplains (KHPN) good options? 

 

Thks

The old Stewart airforce base is now an airport. I think that's the best compromise. I have friends in the area and even the second best choice - Newark Airport is not nearly as good. Not so many flights from Stewart and it might be more money, though. Do not go to Kennedy or LaGuardia if you can avoid it.

I looked into Stewart and so far your correct Ross, the flights are quite a bit higher. Enough, to put me back at Newark (which I've been to a few times).

Did the Newark route several times.  Never a problem.

Last year, I flew into Westchester County Airport (HPN) and caught Uber to the Crowne Plaza and had no problems. I think the fare was around $30. I plan to fly into HPN again this year but probably rent a car.

White Plains - Westchester County Airport (HPN) is a very good option.

2nd HPN. (White Plains). That's your best bet. Avoid the biggies.
