 HTO East Hampton Airport Info & Guide

Where is East Hampton Airport?
East Hampton Airport (IATA: HTO, ICAO: KHTO, FAA LID: HTO) is a public airport in Wainscott, New York, three miles (5 km) west of the central business district of the village of East Hampton, in Suffolk County, New York, USA. It is owned and operated by the Town of East Hampton.

There is considerable debate about the airport which is prominently used by private jets visiting the Hamptons. Residents of newly built houses around the airport have complained about the noise. Other residents have complained about the money spent on the airport. Much of the debate now centres on whether to repair the 2,501-foot (762 m) runway 4/22 which is cracked with vegetation and is currently closed.

Noise from helicopters has also generated controversy. In the summer of 2007 US Helicopter announced plans for scheduled service between the East 34th Street Heliport and the airport (leaving on Friday afternoons and returning on Sunday evenings) with a roundtrip ticket cost of $1,600. In response United States Senator Charles Schumer introduced legislation in July 2007 requiring the Federal Aviation Agency "to study helicopter traffic over Long Island, and report within 90 days on ways to reduce noise and divert the flight paths from homes." The New York Times noted that East Hampton Airport is the most popular destination for helicopters from New York City and that there were 2,400 helicopter arrivals and departures from January to June 2007. James L. Brundige, the airport’s manager, said helicopter flights had doubled in the past decade.

Trump Air provided regularly scheduled helicopter service in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The last scheduled fixed wing airline was East Hampton Airlines which now offers chartered service.

As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 420 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2004 and 103 enplanements in 2005. According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2007–2011, East Hampton is classified as a general aviation airport.

Marine One was based at the airport for one week in August 1998 and 1999 during week-long visits by Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton to the Georgica Pond home of director Steven Spielberg. Clinton conducted a fundraiser in a hangar at the airport in 1999.

The PBS children's television show It's a Big Big World produced by Mitchell Kriegman is produced at Wainscott Studios which is the industrial park associated with the airport.

Cape Air is thinking about launching service to East Hampton Airport Summer 2010 from either Boston, New York, or Martha's Vineyard.
