The airport serves Westchester, a northern suburb of New York City, as well as Fairfield County, Connecticut, as the New York-Connecticut state border concurs with the airport’s eastern boundary.
Westchester is unique, and since the 1980s the County has regulated the flow of commercial aircraft to minimize the impact of aircraft activities to its neighboring communities. Westchester County and the airlines serving the airport operate under a Terminal Capacity Agreement that limits terminal use to four available gate positions. This limit, however, is increased during peak holiday travel periods.
Westchester County Airport was initially opened during World War II as a base for an Air National Guard unit to defend NYC and Rye Lake, part of the 1940s water supply system. As Westchester grew, the guard unit moved to Stewart Airport located in neighboring Orange County. A general aviation and commercial airport, the first scheduled flights, occurred in 1949 from Westchester into LaGuardia.
Today about a million passengers are passing through HPN’s four commercial gates.
KHPN is located 3 miles northeast of downtown White Plains, NY in West Harrison. The airport serves the counties of Westchester, New York, and Fairfield in Connecticut. This airport is also used for New York Metro flights, as it’s about 33 miles north of Midtown Manhattan.
75% of the current aviation traffic in and out of HPN is general aviation. These range from single-engines and turboprops, chartered light, mid, and heavy jets, and corporate sized jet airliners.
Westchester County Airport has several fixed-base operators (FBOs), including Signature Flight Support East and West, Ross Aviation East and West, and Million Air.
