Facilities for disabled people
Long Island MacArthur Airport may be proud to be called the “no hassle” airport, but the content for disabled people on its website is nothing to be proud of. There seems to be no mention in any accessibility facilities or services for travelers with special needs that might be available in the airport.
Their “hospitality services” web page mentions restaurants, hotels, pet relief areas, news stores etc., but there is not a single mention of wheelchairs, text telephones or any other facilities required by ADA and state regulations.
In fact, the only mention of accessibility anywhere on the website comes under “Handicap Parking”, which contains the bald statements that handicap parking spots are closest to the terminal and that the terminal is handicap accessible – no further details are given. Passengers with special needs are asked to contact their airline ahead of time.
