I notice that this airport is now an option for some transatlantic flights...  Never heard of it before, anyone used it, and is it massively difficult to get from the airport into New York? Any rail stations nearby?

The flights are heavily discounted, so it could be a good option for a budget traveler like myself...

 

Any info or tips appreciated!

 

Ed.

This page lists the options.  For rail, you can either cross the river to the Metro-North Hudson Line, or go south to the Port Jervis Line (closer, but much less frequent service).  Coach USA also has a bus direct from the airport to the city, timed to meet certain flights.

Newburgh is not too far, but very inconvenient to get to NYC without a car.
Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!

The last time I flew into Stewart, I rode a (free) bus operated by Leprechaun Lines, contracted by either the PA or MTA, not sure, over the bridge to the Beacon Hudson Line station, where I connected to a Metro-North train to GCT.....very convenient, actually.

 

The last time I rode a train thru Newburgh was this past October....on the Amtrak Autumn Express (but we didn't stop there.... :P )


metroblue?

okay on the blue!
