Our Senior Manager of Sales of the Northeast, Gina West, represented Apple Vacations at Stewart International Airport (SWF) on the morning of Apple Vacations’ inaugural nonstop flight from Stewart International Airport to Cancun last week.
I don’t know if you’re old enough to remember when the fun of going on vacation actually began when you first pulled out your suitcase, dusted it off, packed and then headed off to the airport! Checking in for your flight and the flight itself was part of the fun. Well, Apple Vacations’ goal is to make sure that never changes and it was never more evident than it was last Saturday at Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, NY!
Stewart International Airport is a gem of an airport nestled in the quiet suburbs of Newburgh and New Windsor, New York but don’t let that fool you! The Stewart International Airport may have been the best kept secret as far as alternative options to using the much larger and busier international airports in the northern NJ, NY and Connecticut areas, but all that changed last Saturday!
Nothing could have prepared me for the send-off celebration (provided by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey) that I witnessed, complete with the music of Mariachis (provided by the Mexico Department of Tourism), dancing, refreshments, an official “ribbon-cutting ceremony” and so much more! You can view the festivities here.
It occurred to me that we are so bombarded by doom and gloom reports from the media that we don’t realize, that despite all of the new rules and regulations of flying and traveling in 2011, the fun and excitement of vacationing still exists! The fun still begins the moment you begin to pack and still continues throughout the check-in and flight, especially when you travel with Apple Vacations, and especially if you’re lucky enough to be flying on Apple Vacations’ nonstop charter flights to Cancun from Stewart International Airport this winter!
[Apple Vacations, working in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Allegiant Airlines will operate nonstop flights to Cancun, Mexico from Stewart International Airport on Saturdays for the next 10 weeks from February 12 – April 23rd.]
