Airport Overview

Westchester County Airport (HPN) is just three miles (5km) from White Plains in New York State. It is close to the New York-Connecticut border and just 33 miles (53km) from Manhattan.

Flights to Westchester County Airport are available from several cities across the United States. Some of the more popular routes are to Atlanta, Orlando, West Palm Beach, Chicago and Detroit. Interestingly, Westchester County Airport caters for a significant number of corporate planes.

Westchester County Airport has a great location, the staff are helpful and when there is only one flight arriving or departing the queues aren’t long and you get in and out quickly. However, if more than one plane is arriving or departing then the airport can get quite crowded. In short, it’s a great airport to use if you’re not planning to spend a great deal of time there, as the facilities are modest, with only a few shopping and dining options.
